Jason Chu recites his poem 'Colorblind'

The following video is a response to the La Jolla Playhouse's curious casting of only two Asian actors in a play set in ancient China The Nightingale.

This spoken word piece by Jason Chu is entitled "Colorblind" and speaks to the humbling fact that most of us cannot name more than two Asians who are prominently featured on television, film, news or radio... or even the Web. Asians (including Indians) comprise nearly a third of the world population and yet remain one of the most underrepresented ethnic cultures in all of mass media.

Roll on!
