41. Supporting Chinatown ft. Jackie Wang & Harry Trinh from Welcome to Chinatown (Non-Profit Org)

But Where Are You Really From?: An Asian-American Struggle

Do you remember your first time stepping into Chinatown? It's an otherworldly experience being surrounded by throngs of people and cornered in by restaurants and shops that beckon with mysterious foods and wares. Due to the global pandemic, these amazing neighborhoods are slowly dwindling.  This week, we're joined by Jackie Wang and Harry Trinh, two volunteers with the organization, "Welcome to Chinatown." We talk with them about what their organization is doing to help NYC Chinatown businesses during this troubled time - from organizing grants to help them pay rent to getting them get set up on online delivery systems, and more. We also share our best tips for exploring Chinatown now - from the best places to eat to the shops with the most interesting items.  Learn more about how you can help (donating, buying merch, volunteering) at welcometochinatown.com and follow them on Instagram at @welcome.to.chinatown--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/butwhereareyoureallyfrom/support

Jackie Wang "Oceanic Feeling and Communist Affect"

RIBOCA

For Jackie Wang, dreams are modes of thinking that do not capitulate to reality and everyday scenes of unjustness. Interested in the desire for life and mental structures that cannot be contained, Wang has been exploring the creative, social, and political implications of oceanic feeling as well as the enmeshment of the psychoanalysis of mysticism and psychoanalytic debates about religion.

Understanding Policing pt. 2: Thinking with Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Jackie Wang

We Can't Breathe!

This episode builds on episode 2 and includes a cut from our last class (7.1.20). Here I dive into the work of both Taylor and Wang, looking at the genealogy of policing from the slave patrol through the War on Terror. We focus on the cyclical racialization of crime and criminalization of race; the spatiality of race and policing; the limits of diversification; and the growth of mass incarceration from Reagan to Trump.

91: Jackie Wang, pt 2

We Want the Airwaves

Jackie Wang's book Carceral Capitalism helps draw a direct line between the Recession of 2008, the following calls for austerity, and the visible uptick in anti-Black police violence. Indebted cities are trying to cut costs and raise funds, and they are doing it by having machines and algorithms make decisions that cops and judges would usually make. In places like Ferguson, MO, they're also charging exorbitant fees and fines for the most minor infractions, making poor Black residents' lives way harder than they need to be. Find out exactly how new, technologically advanced, supposedly race-neutral methods of policing continue to perpetuate racism, classism, and heterosexism in this episode. Photo by Sasha Pedro.
