Angry Asian ManThe people behind two of the Asian American community’s biggest blog sites told students at Cal State Fullerton that they provide a consistent voice  their readers don’t typically find elsewhere.

“Some of the people who read the site come because it has a certain voice, and I’d like to think it’s the same voice I’ve maintained for twelve years,” said Phil Yu, founder and editor of Angry Asian Man.

His blog covers current events with an emphasis on the racism that Asian Americans face everyday.
