  1. I would love to enter this contest, but unfortunately I don’t do the Twitter. Thanks for a great episode. As a half-French-Canadian who grew up knowing nothing about Québec’s culture, and now married to a half-Chinese-Indonesian-Canadian who is similarly disconnected from his cultural heritage, the episode really resonated. We’re trying to figure out how to re-weave our cultures into our own rich traditions for our 3.5 year old son.

  2. I know this episode aired about a month ago, but I’ve been a bit behind in my listening. So I have only just recently listened to your interview with Grace Lin.

    First, let me say that I am so pleased that you interviewed Grace. It’s always a victory to hear women of color’s voices on air.

    As an Asian American female myself, I definitely identified with Grace’s experience of growing up in a white community. I think it’s important that we tell our stories of feeling different and alienated from our cultures of origin. These stories, however, are not just personal and individual ones. They happen in the context of a US culture that is dominated by white, Protestant, middle-class norms. Those of us who do not meet these criteria are made to feel other, less than, that we don’t belong. This is the impact of racism. It is a disservice to your listeners to discuss racial difference without contextualizing that experience within the framework of systemic racism. A system that was created specifically to benefit white people at the expense of people of color. So, people of color’s feelings are not an individual phenomenon, but rather a direct result of a system of racism that values white people over people of color.
