Emil Amok Now 2

Emil Amok’s procrastination tool: A mini-podcast!

And this is one about a vegan Filipino restaurant in the Bay Area.

Emil Amok—Emil in a minute or so. He says what’s on your mind and his!

 

You can shove the big yellow thing off the pancake and use a light dousing of the maple syrup to limit calories.  These are the ube pancakes at Nick’s on Grand, a legit Filipino VEGAN place.  Weekends only for the pancakes (served with vegan bacon). Check out the vegan lechon and vegan sissig! Fat still an issue. But no animal fat. You’ll get all the Filipino flavor without the cruelty. Worth checking out if you’re near South San Francisco.

Emil Guillermo: Defending the Philly Take-outs! Chinese owners discriminated against, says Councilman David Oh

After home invasions robberies in their store/residences in Philadelphia, Chinese take-out owners are banding together and sometimes even arming themselves to fight discrimination.

David Oh said there is a real potential for violence between the Asian and African American communities, in my podcast interview with him.

But he’s hoping for a way to find a peaceful resolution by bringing the communities together.

Listen to the new Podcast.

Oh speaks around 30:00 in.

Also more on David Dao/United; Trump’s 100th day; and the 25th Anniversary of the LA Riots–from the Korean American perspective on “Emil Amok’s Takeout”

Emil Guillermo: New Amok podcast, “Emil Amok’s Takeout,” on the kidnapping claims of the forgotten people of the Japanese Internment during WWII, Japanese from Latin America

You can call it “The Other Roundup.”
Art Shibayama will tell you exactly what it meant to him and why all Americans need to be ashamed.

Shibayama was just a 12-year-old boy in Lima,Peru. A Peruvian citizen.
His whole family was taken by the U.S. government and incarcerated in America.

If you don’t know about the Japanese Latin American part of the World War II internment story, you’re not alone.

When Executive Order 9066 cleared the way for the round-up of Japanese and Japanese Americans in the U.S. at the start of World War II, a different kind  of roundup was taking place in Latin America, especially Peru.

The U.S. government was taking Latin American citizens of Japanese descent, what the victims call kidnappings. Those taken were of all ages, and often, whole families were rounded-up. They were placed on U.S. ships and took a long boat ride to America.  They lived in camps like one set up in Crystal City, Texas.

Art Shibayama says they were kidnapped to provide the U.S. a supply of pawns to trade for U.S. GIs held by the Japanese.

Dear Amok readers:

You may have noticed, I  haven’t always been posting here on my site.

But click on this big link to see my writing at the Asian American Legal Defense Fund blog where I post columns each week.

My plan is to post my podcast here, a return to my radio days.

Real audio where you can hear stuff like I did on NPR.

So look for the podcast soon.

I am also working on some live performance projects.

A solo show on American Filipinos, “All Pucked Up.”

Some stand up for those with short-attention spans.

After dinner speeches for those with iron stomachs.

E-mail me at emilamok@gmail.com to book or for information on coming shows, mics, black box appearances, pop ups, etc.

In the meantime, I’m writing a lot about the campaign and other news  on the AALDEF blog,

And here on the Diverse blog.

And on Asian American issues in general   on the NBC News.com website.

So lots of places to go amok, besides right  here at amok.com.

Recently, it was National Dog Day, and I posted a picture of Willie, a mutt I named after my Dad.  Willie used to sing every time he  heard a ringtone of some sort.  And then the music died.

I miss both Willies.
