NYU students protested a Valentine's Day performance by the band Ching Chong Song, whose two members are white. The band has changed their name as a result, although this has yet to be reflected on their website. Which ching chong song could they have been referring to? The Wikipedia entry on 'ching chong' includes some possibilities. In response to the cancellation of a show at Bryn Mawr, band member Julia LaMendola wrote an open letter to the school newspaper. In it, she claims that those who complained about her band's name took an unsophisticated approach: "Let's not use misunderstanding as armor against the complicated nature of life. Don't polarize shit when there are so many shades of sexuality and ethnicity to appreciate." Apparently she is able to take this stance because was the "child of a gay parent in a tiny town, a poor second-generation Italian girl, I also have experience with the nuances of language. And give me a break you stupid twats." She continues, "By the way, 'ching chang chong' is what people in Germany call the game paper rock scissors, and stupid petty retards is what I'm calling you." Well, I call her the paragon of sensibility.

We're gearing up for our Summer issue, The Transit Issue, and we want to see what you've got, Asian America. Riding the bus crosstown can turn into an out-an-out adventure, and we know you have a tale to tell. Send us your well-crafted anecdotes and insights into that human condition we call public transportation. For our purposes we're not counting taxis and airplanes. But we most certainly welcome things that happened on buses, trains and subways, and even at the bus stop, in 400 to 600 words. Send them to editorial[at]hyphenmagazine.com by February 26, 2007. Have any questions? Leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
