Link Time: Undoing, Bill Sorro, Ask a Filipino

December 7, 2007

  • Here's a good site about Bill Sorro, a community activist who passed away recently. He was really an amazing guy. We photographed Bill and his family in the very first issue of Hyphen.
  • Curry Metaphors Are a Must When Writing About Desis. Manish of Ultrabrown calls out the NYTimes and other media.
  • Cory Choy, a Korean American, throws his name into Gawker's "Who is the Whitest Kid You Know?" contest.
  • And finally, all those burning questions you had about Filipinos are answered here. Here's "Ask a Filipino," in the vein of the Chappelle Show's "Ask a Black Dude."
