Not Your Mama's Melting Pot
This is a collection which aims to lay bare a mixed-race experience: Native Americans understood only as wax models in museums, erased discourses of Indigeneity; the immigrant grind, Asian Americans in Anglo Society, anti-Hapa rhetoric reverbing in 21st century America; the quandary of Rust Belt poverty plaguing small Appalachian communities, its cycle of concrete ceilings, its left-hook-right-hook masculinity, its dirt-caked realities.
