Jay Caspian Kang, a noted Korean American journalist, warns the precarious position of minority journalists is under new assault as the mainstream media makes its adjustments to the Trump election. He argues the mainstream media that has already begun the hiring of pro-Trump voices, will soon be jettisoning the “identity politics writers,” it hired only a few years ago. It is time, Kang says, for progressive minority writers to “start building their own shit.”
