This month, San Francisco Magazine (SFM) published its “Power Issue” that purports to reveal the inner workings of San Francisco politics and, more specifically, promotes a particularly sensationalistic view of Rose Pak and “the Chinatown Connection.” As I discuss, SFM’s fear-driven narrative panders to anxieties about Asian American political participation. These anxieties combine with simple ignorance to obscure the real politics of diversity in the City.
