    Kristina,
    A friend of mine turned me on to your “REPARATIONS FOR YELLOW FEVER!” I laughed my ass off. I loved it. You’re really good. Really good. I don’t have Yellow Fever but the Asian Flu, whoaaaaa! My wife is Chinese. I’m going to watch it again with her. I can hardly wait to see your reaction.
    Keep up the great work.

    This is so funny. I am a Asian man. I don’t like men or women with Asian fever. They really freak me out.

    OMG this was hilarious. I want to say those guys are unreal but no, I know they exist unfortunately

  8. Hi Kristina, thank you so much for your informed art. I will be stopping in from time to time and would like to interview you if you do interviews. You have my contact information.

  9. [...] I just appeared on a London-based television show hosted by Richie Allen and one of the co-producers asked me what would reparations look like and as I began to discuss my ideas on the topic (public policies that eliminate racial disparities), he said that he was Chinese and that Chinese are also subjected to discrimination and that I didn’t answer about Chinese. Unfortunately, after I gave my response on the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and the article by Ta-Nehesi Coates in The Atlantic, “The Case for Reparations:  An Intellectual Autopsy,” we didn’t have time to go into specific Chinese grievances. Coates’s article can be found here:  http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2014/05/the-case-for-reparations-an-intellectual-autopsy/371125/  I would like to hear from those knowledgeable about Chinese grievances and learn from them.  To continue that conversation, let me state for the record that the global system of colonialism and the Eurocentrism that resulted from colonialism’s policies affected everyone who was touched by it–on both sides. That is the beauty of Fanon’s, Freire’s and José Maria Sison’s writings, the three of whom shifted the thinking and the doing, including academically, on decolonization.  See Kristina Wong’s comedy on Asian reparations: http://kristinawong.com/blog/2014/05/04/full-episode-watch-kristina-wong-get-reparations-for-yellow-… [...]

    I don’t have Yellow Fever (maybe a little), but after this, I totally have Wong Fever.

  11. Grace says:

    Kristina, you are my hero. Long life to you.

  12. Kathy says:

    Hi Kristina, your reparations for yellow fever was so kick-ass! I am an Asian-american woman myself and I just loved loved seeing your personality on camera with these men. there are plenty of jackasses out there, and I find that I am so scared to be myself and tell them to fuck off for fear of hurting their feelings. I admire your humor, your strength and courage to show yourself to the world. Keep on truckin sister! You are so cool, I just want to hug you and thank you for being such an inspiration and making me laugh while you are at it! Thank you so much!!

    Hi Kristina.
    Ur humour is fantastic. Ur irreverence would go over big time here in OZ, please look at touring here with ur show.
    Keep on “taking the piss” , comedians are the conscience of society.

    Oh my god I love this. Get those reparations, girl!

  15. Bu says:

    This is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. I feel bad for that first guy, he wasn’t genuinely a dick, he was just ignorant and old. I’m gonna photoshop an asian vag sideways and see if I can get some craig’s list hits. Your project makes me wonder how much more offensive can it all get. I’m surprised no one walked off in the middle, you trolled them so hard.

  17. [...] After we decided on going to a few sites, we also wanted to figure out a way to reflect on our learning and engage with the NAAF discourses. We thought about using music, because Brendan was a musician, in some sort of street performance as a way to draw in passers by to conversations about themes discussed in class, particularly representations (or the lack there of) NA Asian’s in history, stereotypes in movies (Hypersecuality—Shimizu, 2007; and stereotypes and Asian male sexuality; Nyuyen & Tu, 2007, Eng, 2001). However, we realised there probably would not be enough time for Brendan to learn New genres of music, and that a performance such as that would take a long time to organize and it might require permits, and just be too large of a task for the day. So, inspired by Tetsuro’s Youtube clips and comedy we decided to do street style interviews. We all thought of questions to ask people and images to print off. We also looked up images and videos of Anna May Wong, Lucy Liu, and comedy by Margaret Cho and Kristina Wong. One of our favorite videos was Kristina Wong’s “Reparations for Yellow Fever.” [...]
