Asian Pacific American Toychest

Ernie introduces Lauren, The Asian-Pacific-Islander Spoken Word Poet Doll:

Lauren would come in a cardigan sweater and a pair of fabulous black, horn-rimmed glasses, where she would stand quietly. Stand quietly, of course, until you pull the string in the back – then she because Angry Asian-American Activist Lauren, where she would scream epithets about racial inequality, the “model minority,” and race quotas in the UC system in perfect iambic pentameter. Sample phrases would address the objectification of Asian American women, references to obvious Asian pop culture like Hello Kitty and yell, because spoken word poets like to yell a lot.
