While Hollywood is finally starting to diversify, Youtube has always been a platform that celebrates minority representation. Besides all the channels for learning Chinese, there are also many Chinese-American YouTubers making videos about lifestyle, culture, and so one. Here are my top 4 Chinese-American Youtubers:
1 Wong Fu Productions
I grew up watching so many of their videos. While their skits usually just discuss life in general, I think many First-Generation Asian-Americans can relate to their videos. They also cast predominantly Asian and Asian-American actors in their videos! Two thumbs up for representation in media!
2 Fung Bros
This dynamic duo creates all sorts of videos centered on the Asian-American experience, ranging from Asian food to culture to family life. They embrace their heritage, and make comedic skits about the unique experiences Asian-Americans have growing up in the US. They also make quite informative videos on the vast variety of foods in China, Taiwan, and all over Asia!
Weylie is a beauty guru and lifestyle vlogger on Youtube. She also has a second channel where she and her boyfriend vlog about their lives. She made a video discussing her struggle with identity growing up as a Chinese-American. I believe that this struggle is very common among Asian-Americans, and open discussions about it are incredibly important.
4 TingTing ASMR
Okay, while this isn’t my personal favorite genre of Youtube videos, I have a TON of younger cousins that have jumped on the ASMR train. Can someone please explain the appeal of ASMR to me??? Anyways, if you are like the millions of other people who are into ASMR videos, you gotta check out TingTing ASMR. Some of her most popular videos are related to Chinese culture.
