A New Asian Creative Class

Creative Class

In his 2012 book "The Rise of the Creative Class, Revisited," Richard
Florida, a senior editor at The Atlantic, estimates that Asians make up 6.1
percent of creative jobs in America a number that seems insignificant until you
look at it from the reverse. "AsianAmericans are by far the most heavily
represented in the creative class work," Florida writes. "Nearly onehalf (47
percent) of them work in creative class jobs, compared to roughly onethird (34
percent) of whites, 24 percent of AfricanAmericans, and 18 percent of
Hispanics." The jobs that qualify as "creative," Florida says, span "science and
technology, arts, media, and culture, traditional Black

knowledge workers and the professions" in short, anything
but the doctors or lawyers their parents may have once groomed them to be.

So when did Asians become "cool"? And how did the paradigm shift from William
Hung, lame "American Idol" contestant, to David Choe, the weedsmoking
KoreanAmerican artist who famously painted murals at Facebook's first Sillicon
Valley office (for cheap air max

about $200 million worth of stock)?

The influx of Asians in fashion is hard to ignore. "There is this
understanding that there is this group of AsianAmerican designers who are coming
up in the world, and there is a sense of pride," Lam told the New York Times in
2010, in an article aptly entitled "AsianAmericans Climb Fashion Industry Black

Ladder." Parents who may have wanted a more traditional
career path for their children appear swayed by the rampant success of fashion
stars like Alexander Wang, who, at the age of 28, was named the creative
director of Balenciaga.

Then there is food. Soup dumplings, ramen, Korean fried chicken. In urban
environments, eating "Asian" has become UGGs Black
Friday
a trend word for eating at a buzzworthy restaurant, say Mission
Chinese in San Francisco or Momofuku in New York. "Fusion" rings staunchly '90s;
instead, a new generation of chefs mostly of Asian heritage, sometimes not are
creating wildly inventive dishes that put their restaurants on the map of every
food critic. "Asian hipster cuisine has replaced Asian fusion cuisine," ran a
headline from New York Magazine this year. David Chang's success with Momofuku
has inspired imitators of his strippeddown blond wood interiors and deliciously
strange cuisine. I had been hearing that Korean food would become the next
Japanese food for the past ten years. After seeing tshirts printed with "I
[heart] Black

Kimchi," I now believe it.

But a funny thing happens over time with trendsetters who happen to be Black

Asian. There is a certain kind of "deracialization"
that occurs after one becomes part of popular culture. As David Chang grows, his
identity becomes less about being a UGG Boots
Black Friday
KoreanAmerican chef and more the visionary creator behind an
intimidating empire. His relevance extends beyond race or background. That is
perhaps the most radical thing that can happen to a stereotype at all: the
diminishing of one.
