Event April 26Would it smell as tasty? Would anyone have any idea that you were referring to the Durant Food Court? No, “The Asian Ghetto” is not actually its official name, and tomorrow the Asian Pacific American Coalition wants to make sure you don’t forget it.

In honor of “the nationally recognized” Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the APAC–with the help of the Telegraph Berkeley Improvement District–is putting on a culture and food festival on Telegraph Avenue from 12-3 p.m. The theme is “Not an Asian Ghetto: More than Just Take-Out,” as a way to “combat negative aggregation of cultures into a single ‘Asian’ monolith and the stereotypical portrayal of ethnic enclaves as traditional ‘ghettos.’”

OK, that seems fair, despite that the whole she-bang is organized by a group called the “Asian Pacific American Coalition,” and that the use of the phrase “Asian Ghetto,” is probably more than anything a term of endearment. You know, sort of like how we refer to our bitches as our “hos.” (Jay kay, lawls!)

In the interest of political correctness and the remote possibility of truly fantastic free food, we highly recommend that you check it out.
