Culture Vultures

After hearing about this book, this one and this one, I feel like there is a gold rush mentality among Asian Americans to mine what they can from their culture and heritage for commercial exploitation.

As in all cases, there is a pull effect for this type of stuff, so I’m not sure who to blame for this. Whichever one it is, I used to be really pissed off about this stuff. But recently I’ve become bloodthirsty for a piece of this action.

At this rate, there’s not going to be anything left. And like a desparate scavenger who doesn’t want to go hungry, I want to make sure I get mine before it’s all gone.
