UI student organization promotes tolerance on campus

Derogatory and discriminating remarks on Asian students, particularly Asian international students, flared up on Twitter last fall. To raise awareness of the racism toward Asian students on campus, and to promote understanding between international and domestic students,  University of Iowa Asian American Coalition invited California-based blogger Phil Yu, aka Angry Asian Man, to give a speech on his experience of 13 years running the blog, writing offensive things he observes and encounters in life and media. Yu said it is important for Asians to stand up and speak out when being offended and unfairly treated.
