They Call Them Bruce

They Call Them Bruce
Race and Power
September 23, 2021

After a year and a half of the pandemic, ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’, Marvel's first blockbuster film to feature an Asian American superhero did big numbers at the box office. This is from the same country where politicians were calling the COVID-19 virus the "China Flu", and we had a spate of violent crimes targeting Asian-Americans. In this episode of Know What You See, Brian Lowery talks to Jeff Yang and Phil Yu, co-hosts of the podcast "They Call Us Bruce" about how negative stereotypes and the deep lack of representation in the culture can lead to active change.
