With over 17 million Asians in America (according to the US Census Bureau) and Canadian cities like Vancouver with a population that’s around 50% Asian, the dearth of Asian-focused publications is a wonder. Of course, there are publications like Hyphen Magazine and Koream who have blazed a trail for us. Jeff Yang, who started the legendary A Magazine now runs the popular Tao Jones blog with the Wall Street Journal. Yet, with such a large and influential demographic, the lack of Asians in media, or Asian media, rather, is astounding. What about nationally-distributed magazines to rival Forbes or Fortune?
