Last night the ego trip People descended on the powerHouse Arena in DUMBO, Brooklyn as part of the Asian American Writers' Workshop's After 1989 program. Our assignment: to present a slide show of racial print ad images from the era of political correctness, the 1990s , and have the guys from everyone's favorite hip-hop group possibly named after an old Wonder Showzen skit but not really, Das Racist , respond with witty repartee. Since the program went so well we thought we'd share some of the images we curated here with our egotripland readers, so you may join in the fun too.
