Push Continues to Make Fred Korematsu Day A National Holiday - NBC News.com

I got a quote from Asian America's Uncle George Takei! for my article for NBC News Asian America
"Fred Korematsu Day not only honors a great man, but also reminds us about our fragile democracy, which is only as strong as our the adherence to our constitutional principles," said Asian American actor and civil rights activist George Takei

The 'Lost' Work of Frank Chin to be Published in March - NBC News.com

My article for NBC News Asian America
A novel by provocative Asian-American writer, Frank Chin, written in the mid-1970's and long considered "lost," will finally be published this March by the University of Hawaii Press as "The Confessions of a Number One Son: The Great Chinese American Novel" after being discovered by Asian-American literature scholar Calvin McMillin.
"The discovery and eventual restoration of Chin's lost novel," said McMillian, "warrants a serious critical reevaluation of the author's work and his ultimate legacy."

New Study Reveals Most Americans Don't Understand Sikhism - NBC News.com

My article for NBC News Asian America:
Sikhism is the world's fifth largest religion, with over 500,000 Sikhs in America. Yet the study found that sixty percent of Americans surveyed did not know anything about Sikhism or Sikh Americans. Only 11 percent of those surveyed actually knew a Sikh person.

Increase in Anti-Muslim Incidents in France Post-Shooting - NBC News.com

My article in NBC News Asian America
"The attacks in Paris occurred in a very Islamophobic and racist context in France," said Elsa Ray, spokesperson for the Collective Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), an advocacy group which has recorded reports of over 66 anti-Muslim attacks (not necessarily reported to the police) in the past two weeks. "The number [of anti-Muslim attacks] has been increasing over the past few years because hate speech and stigmatizing discourse on Muslims have been a global trend and the French government has done nothing to counter this problem, to counter discrimination and violence toward Muslims."

Paris Attack Response Stirs #JeNeSuisPasCharlie Discussion - NBC News.com

My article for NBC News Asian America
The world mourned the senseless deaths in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, prompting a public global surge in support of free speech and the subsequent outpouring on social media, tagged with #JeSuisCharlie ("I Am Charlie"). But in the days since, that first conversation has given way to a second - with some Asian-American satirists and writers at the forefront - focused on where freedom of speech meets the limits of satire.
