"What's the massacre's legacy today with Chinese Americans, even ones who don't know about the event? Yeah, I think, you know, the impact of the 1871 Chinese massacre is really yet to be known. It's a work in progress. You know, when you surface a buried history, you then have to recontextualize your understanding of everything that came after. You know, you have this big blank that was filled in that can explain a lot of things, you know, when you talk about the stereotypes applied to Chinese people back then, those became the kind of racial framework that all future Chinese people were viewed with. And so, you know, I think even older Chinese Americans like Elaine Wu a former LA times reporter were really kind of examining their memories. And looking for the possible impacts of such an event. I think I'm still processing what it means to me as a fourth or 5th generation Chinese American. I think that we all in some ways carry the burden of this silence, as I said earlier, if my parents or grandparents knew about the massacre, they never let on. I'm sure that they thought there was no point in telling us about it because that's not what their lives in America were about. They were about assimilating and climbing the latter and what good would it do to talk about such a horrible event that really brought a lot of shame, I think that it's worth realizing that we are connected to other racialized communities through blood and tears. We may have been aware of sacrifices of the pioneering Chinese who built the railroads, but most of us did not know of the horrendous brutality that claimed the lives of at least 18 Chinese immigrants in 1871. It's a rude awakening to realize that we are not so exceptional as Cathy park Hong has written to realize.

"cathy park" Discussed on The Design of Business - The Business of Design
"So we have to take a pause. You're so creative. And funny and honest and you're developing this extraordinary award-winning body of work wrapping your point of view around an iconic part of our lives centuries old. How do you think about the future of book design I feel like their future. Your curiosity your humor that you've the you're going to be moving things an interesting direction. Is there anything you can say about that. It's hard to say what the future of book cover. Designer book design will look like i think that publishing and a lot of other you know even design as these industries that are supposed to be forward thinking. I think we've fallen behind in a lot of ways as we talk about equity and fairness and all of that i just think like things need to change. I mean obviously it's like a huge systemic issue but also you know the question i ask myself everyday is like m i a part of the problem or am i gonna somehow be a part of the solution so i only recently have become a manager and it's something i think about every day like how i'm gonna communicate my designers or you know who i don't even call one of them as mine designers to dislike the other members of the team. How do i make the process a little more democratic while still having structure and try to like set them up to sixty and grow and feel confident. I think like the way of thinking like i went through this. So it's okay is completely backwards and wrong by feeling is that i went through this and i don't want anyone else to experience this again. You know we make choices and decisions every day on how we talk to people and treat people. And that's one of the most important things i learned by working in restaurants. You know and. I think it goes beyond just like inclusion like. I'm not interested in hearing about diversity inclusion. if you're not setting up these people to succeed. I don't think it's something that will be resolved right away but it gives me hope that i see people making steps to make changes speaking in a general way across all of publishing really making sure that the entry level talent is underpaid and subsidized by family. If they possibly can be and it's very hard to break in and Very hard very good work. It's done by people who don't make a lot of money you know it's like these these things are seen and known and people are getting busy around them. Yeah i mean. When i started i was paid twelve dollars an hour for about a almost a year. You know. I had to still work at a restaurant to be able to have that job. It's just not possible for a lot of people to even dream about entering publishing design. Because you know your livelihood is more important several several times. And i read that you said in an interview that you succeeded because of a little luck and a lot of help how do you see yourself helping or making luck for the next generation designers for me. I always try to remember that. They're not me. So i try my best to hear what they're saying. Instead of you know what. I think they should be saying but also My career started from from basically cold emails. So i try to respond to any cold emails that i get tried to set up phone calls with people and review their portfolios. If they need advice also. I felt like this is really important to me and this is something patty rochford that i appreciate so much is that she really let me make a lot of bad work to kind of work through it. I think that helped me build a little bit of confidence to think individually instead of trying to solve a problem and figure out what they want because they feel like the minute you start thinking about what the client wants too much then. That's when you start slipping into bad work. Her not just like telling me my work was bad and instead helping me figure out a way to make it better like she gave a lot of positive reinforcement which let me take risks that i may be otherwise. Wouldn't have so. It's something i try to think about. When i talked to other designers about their work. Have you ever needed to consult A sensitivity expert to make sure that it was culturally aligned. If that happened yet. I think they do that on the editorial side but in terms of the cover. That hasn't formally happened yet but it is a conversation that happens. You know maybe between myself and the creative director or the designers or things like that It's it's really messed up. Actually that it's so hard to find black and brown book coverage designers and now there are like social networks stat represent them a bit more but it's still not enough especially when you're trying to create a more diverse face than have the designs reflect that i feel like what i struggle with a lot is like that kind of line between tokenism and representation like i'm happy that i got to for example work on the cover for minor feelings like i love. Cathy park hong. Her literature is like really important to me. As like a korean-american. I wanna work on this and really be able to create a design that reflects. What's in the book accurately from a korean american perspective. I think that's important. But also a lot of times. Like get like all the asian american books or like just books by minorities or marginalized groups in general. And i'm like this is kind of a problem you know at i. I don't really know that. There's like an immediate solution to it. Which is why we have to do. Things like invest in younger people. Think of mentorship programs that extend outside of art schools. It's gonna take a lot of work..

Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong Review
"Poet and Sas Cathy Park Hong Blends Memoir cultural criticism and history to expose the truth of racial consciousness in America. Binding these essays together is Hong Theory of minor feelings as daughter of Korean. Immigrants Cathy Park. Hong grew up steeped in shame suspicion and melancholy. She would later understand that these minor feelings occur when American optimism contradicts your own reality. When you believe the lies, you told about your own racial identity, Hong uses her own story as a portal into deeper examination of racial consciousness in America today. This book traces her relationship to the English language to shame and depression to poetry art making and to family and female friendships in a search to both uncover and speak the truth. So this is our second more of slash essay collection that we've read this year. If we include maxine Hong Kingston's will warm air and it's similar a lot of ways but also different right because this one instead of using folktales as the medium it uses more it's more of like a straight up memoir right? I don't know if it's a straight up memoir I I think it's accurate to say it's an essay collection of because a lot of her essays aren't. Obviously, she does bring up her own personal experiences. To help supplement her series on Racial consciousness in the Asian American community but a lot of it is pretty scholarly she. CITES. A lot of other essays and other artists and a lot of history is in this book as well. Yes. So I don't know like when I when I found this book, it was in the biography section of the book store and I was like like I thought this was going to be in the essay like the sanction but okay. So it's definitely a book that blends a lot of different John Russia's. Your I mean when this book came out, everyone was talking about how like how they are in their fields and really related to it. A lot of people in our good reeds were pretty excited that we were picking the book up for for this episode a lot of people had already read it. People Honor instagram saying that this is the best book of Twenty Twenty and I was like, okay well. Clearly, our club members are you know they? They love it. So hopefully, I will disappoint them by thinking that this is a bad book and. Nearly like it wasn't is not a bad book I think for me. Ask someone who has taken as American. Studies American literature. Has Been steeped in the community and the discussion of representation for the last like dozen or so while it was well written I think a lot of the part people really resonated were parts were Kathy does go into more like scoured discussions of representation of history of like things that you don't WanNa learn in the mainstream history that. I kind of already knew so I think the part that really drew me or were more interesting to me. Worthy parts that were more personal with those personal stories by personal. Do you mean the latter half of the book where she talks About College and Art? Making. Yeah. Those. Tests will her family or just personal experiences because it's interesting because as someone who has worked with Asian American communities across the nation not only in La. In places like Texas like the New York, there's this collective unconscious. That's local to every asian-american community. That's at a different level of development. Right like I. Think for a lot of people have their asian-american awakening in college when they finally at a place where they can find themselves to run it by people that look like them or find other people with their experiences I think for myself the happen a little bit earlier because. I grew up in the senior valley growing up my high school was always at least forty to sixty percent eastern. So being as wasn't something that put us apart I think for myself it was more. Okay. Like I have no problem being Asian in America. But my problem is how Asian should I be right? Yeah. Yeah I got it. You know you know those minor feelings still occur.
