Quoted @muyixiao

1/ As a Chinese who works with many China watchers and reads lots of work by China watchers, I sometimes see something problematic—the over-simplified black & white narrative that unfortunately always gets popular among readers and casts a shadow over other more nuanced stories.

A great thred on why people who write about China (especially those of us who are not from China) should write as listeners, recognizing that the people we write about are the the true carriers of knowledge. They are not objects to be consumed. Also: checkout @CNStorytellers

In the past four years, H1B applicants received a request from USCIS for more materials, known as a “request for further evidence,” or RFE grew from 22% to 60%. Winning the H-1B visa lottery is no longer enough. Reported by @zhoyoyo on @qz https://buff.ly/2VCvodt

The first time I got RFE was November 2016, I had to sit at home while my colleagues covered the presidential election. The second time I got RFE, I missed a chance to report in Kenya. These aren't even legislative changes, but can seriously affect people's lives and careers.

Can't imagine what @humarisaac @ZumretI and their parents have gone through. It's incredibly brave and strong for them to speak up. Glad their parents are out, but millions are still in the camps. Thanks @xinyanyu for documenting this important story https://sc.mp/jti2  via

I wrote about the fast-growing Chinese storytelling podcast STORY FM 故事FM. I’ve always thought China would be the perfect place for a TAL-style podcast - there are 👏so 👏many 👏crazy 👏stories here that don’t fit neatly into any particular mold. https://nyti.ms/30gMYlZ

So honored to have @MiaInChina, @xu_xiuzhong and Eva Hart on @LoudMurmurs talking about what is like to do comedy as a Chinese woman. We talk about Hannah Gatsby, sexism in comedy, racial jokes and our Han privilege. This is the full, uncensored version:

All in My Family was made as a love letter to my often-frustrating, sometimes-infuriating, but always-loving Chinese family, a love letter to my mom, who made me who I am, for both good and bad. 

Happy mother's day, Mom (and all the moms in my life)! #AllInMyFamilyFilm #Netflix

Besides the household goods like vacuum and refrigerators, your restaurant bill may also go up because of Trump's proposed $200 billion China tariffs. How would U.S. consumers be hurt? Our founding member @shenlulushen on @magnify_money: https://buff.ly/2LAvMEI
