Back in July of 2006, I was invited to be a guest on the Tyra show. I was on the show to talk about racism against Asian Americans. I was flown out to Los Angeles, CA. and stayed at the Hyatt off Sunset Blvd. I had free meals all 4 days, got paid, and practically did nothing.
I had to stand in front of a double sided mirror, and was listening in to stupid peoples reasoning of why they stereo type certain races. Then I said a story about how one lady asked me to act Mongolian for a foreign exchange student so that she would feel more comfortable. I also had to go behind the Warner Brother Studios and act like the neighborhood there was the one I grew up in, since they didn’t tell me to record a video of my own neighborhood… (I was called the night before my flight at 12:30am about my invite on the show, so there wasn’t any time to record a video.)
Long story short. Show aired as the Season 2 premire on Sept 11, 2006. I was promised a DVD copy of the episode… and alas they did not fulfill their promise. I cannot find the VHS I recorded of the episode and was wondering if ANYONE had the second season DVD. Or know where I can find a longer clip than this one: http://tyrashow.warnerbros.com/2006/09/racism_who_has_it_worse.php ? I would greatly appreciate it. Many of my family members did not get the chance to see this episode, nor has my fiance. Thanks so much!
