I’m self-identified white American born and raised in the Bay Area of California. In this blog, I ramble on about race and racism, a cause and issue close to my heart. But I don’t update this nearly enough…
A little more about me
For my undergraduate studies, I obtained a degree in Biological Anthropology from UC San Diego. There I focused on human evolution and genetic variability. I was trying to find some of the root causes for racism through hard science. While I found lots to refute the very idea of race, racism persisted. So in pursuit of race, cultural identity and racism, I entered the Masters program at San Francisco State University in Cultural Anthropology where I completed my thesis dealing with the media representation of Asian Americans.
I dabbled in some policy work with the Applied Research Center (internship), but ultimately had to pay rent so I went back into the technology sector.
I’m bored and my true calling keeps knocking on my brain. Hence, for now, this blog.
