       Reflections on Race, Class, Empire, and the "Pains of 
520    "East Meets Black examines the making and remaking of race
       and masculinity through the racialization of Asian and 
       black men, confronting this important white stratagem to 
       secure class and racial privilege, wealth, and status in 
       the post-civil rights era. Indeed, Asian and black men in 
       neoliberal America are cast by white supremacy as 
       oppositional. Through this opposition in the US racial 
       hierarchy, Chong Chon-Smith argues that Asian and black 
       men are positioned along binaries--brain/body, diligent/
       lazy, nerd/criminal, culture/genetics, student/convict, 
       and technocrat/athlete--in what he terms "racial 
       magnetism." Via this concept, East Meets Black traces the 
       national conversations that oppose black and Asian 
       masculinities but also the Afro-Asian counterpoints in 
       literature, film, popular sport, hip hop music, 
       performance arts, and internet subcultures. Chon-Smith 
       highlights the spectacle and performance of baseball 
       players such as Ichiro Suzuki within global 
       multiculturalism and the racially coded controversy 
       between Yao Ming and Shaquille O'Neal in transnational 
       basketball. Further, he assesses the prominence of martial
       arts buddy films such as Romeo Must Die and Rush Hour that
       produce Afro-Asian solidarity in mainstream Hollywood 
       cinema. Finally, Chon-Smith explores how the Afro-Asian 
       cultural fusions in hip hop open up possibilities for the 
       creation of alternative subcultures, to disrupt myths of 
       black pathology and the Asian model minority"--|cProvided
