Shout Out To The Racists I've Met

Sophia Chang has a message to all "the myriad of douchebag racists" she's encountered since childhood.



Sophia Chang is a self-described "music business matriarch" who has worked with Paul Simon and has managed the likes of ODB, RZA, GZA, Q Tip, A Tribe Called Quest, Raphael Saadiq, and D'Angelo... and she doesn't take shit from anybody. Especially racist shit. During a recent college lecture, she closed out her talk with a message to all "the myriad of douchebag racists" she's encountered throughout her life.



"With every 'chink' that was spat my way, I was prompted to crush the box. With every 'Jap,' I was prompted to pursue my passion. And with every 'gook' I was pushed to tell my story. Know this. Your small-mindedness fuels my prodigiousness. Your ignorance, my knowledge. And your weakness, my power."

Got that, racists? This one's for you.
