Day 5

Walked through a not very bright park with a pal and three men sat about called out, “Hello, ladies!” Why? That’s a rhetorical question.

Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that he liked Riz’s piece and that he wants to read the book.

Darren and Nikesh were on BBC Asian. It was really good talking to Darren the other day about the use of the word “Asian” and how the term is not terribly useful to those of South Asian descent, due to communities coming together due to religion and language. We talked about how “Asian” is used in the acting industry and how if you it *just* means people who look Indian. Conversely, East Asian means people who look Chinese. I understand how this goes uninterrogated.

Less wobbly today so I’m feeling hopeful. Not much else to share. Thanks for reading.
