Casting Call: Reality show seeks Asian Americans "who strongly identify with Hip-Hop Culture"

Searching for "street smart Asian American friends with interest in hip-hop culture."

Got this odd reality show casting call sent my way... Are you a "street smart" Asian American with "interest in hip-hop culture"? (I can think of, like, a hundred people who fit this description.) According to this casting call, a major television production company is looking for you and your friends for a reality show: CASTING: Group of Asian American Friends who strongly identify with Hip-Hop Culture.

I don't what production company is making this, or what kind of show they're putting together. But I've seen my fair share of reality television to know that they'll make a friggin' show about anything. And people will watch it. Here are some more details on who they're looking for:

CASTING: Group of Asian American Friends who strongly identify with Hip-Hop Culture.

A major television production company is searching for groups of street smart Asian American friends with interest in hip-hop culture.

Do you and your group of friends have big personalities and not afraid to say what's on your mind? We are looking for a group of friends that feel more connected to hip hop culture than the Asian heritage that their family has tried to pass on.

If interested please submit with into about you and your friends along with photos. Please include a contact number when submitting.
Whatever they've got in mind, it's clear they're trying to set up a conflicting dynamic where an Asian American person's embrace of hip hop is somehow in opposition with his or her cultural traditions or heritage. Is it so hard for the two influences to co-exist? I don't know, maybe it'll be cool. Apply at your own risk here.
