34 year old Philip Huang is a self-described performance artist out of Berkeley, California, described by the East Bay Express as having “a special talent for digesting life and creating spectacle.”
Yep, “creating spectacle” would be an accurate way to describe, as he goes on Telegraph Avenue – one of the main college drags for UC Berkeley students – and asks crowds of people who are more annoying: drunk White girls, or drunk Asian girls. The responses are pretty much the expected ones, considering we’re in the politically correct Bay Area – groups of girls get uncomfortable and refuse to answer the question; one girl flat out chews him out, Huang dismissing her as an “ethnic studies major.” To anyone viewing the video without context, it’s an award, epic fail of a guy trying to troll a bunch of co-eds and bouncers to incite a mini-race riot — a nice try, but no “money shot, er, quote,” to quote Koji. Now that I know Huang is a “performance artist”, he can shrug the results off. I still think the video clip is awkward to watch, though.
