The Whitening and Erasure of the Asian-American Identity

12 min

Writer Iris Kuo knows what it feels like to forget her wallet and still walk out of a fancy department store with a bag full of merchandise: It feels white. Experts predict that some ethnically Asian and Latino people are going through a sociological process of "whitening." Kuo talks about how this hurts many Asian-Americans and how transferring white privilege ignores the core issue itself: the very existence of white supremacy in our value system.

Guest: Iris Kuo, author of "The Whitening of Asian Americans"
