Thanks for doing what you do, the way you do it.
Do you think that by taking the name 'The Slants' that you take possession of the word in the way that Black people use the "N" word?
Keep it going!
In some ways, yes - Asian American activists have been using the term SLANT in a positive, self-empowering way for decades now. In other ways, it's a bit different because unlike the N word, "Slants" is not an inherent racial slur. It has many other meanings.
1) Is the DC Bar Assn. a music show or a discussion panel?
2) Is it open the public or just members of the assn.
3) I'm really quite conflicted about your SCOTUS case. Right now, I"m saying that the best thing to come out of it is that I'd never have heard of you without it. A 30 sec listen made a new fan.
