So I just poked around on Joe Tsai.
Um… I’m sorta torn between “wow!” and “huh?”
One thing that is clear, though, is that he has led an incredibly liminal life with respect to cultures and not just the crossing of boundaries but having a life that crosses them and even exists—and has thrived—on such crossings, and that is very obviously a huge part of his life and success.
I mean, his family fled to Taiwan when the communists took power in China, was educated in the US and went to probably our most progressive elite law school (Yale) which was his father’s alma mater, is married to a woman of Asian extraction who grew up in a college town in Kansas and has Stanford and Harvard degrees, somehow has a Canadian passport (I stopped trying to figure shit out at some point), and is a founder and top executive of on of China’s most important corporations, and was highly critical of Morey’s Tweet about Hong Kong and China. Oh, and I forgot: He has a home in Hong Kong.
Who knows what will happen, but this is a guy who knows his way around political, ethnic, religious, cultural boundaries at the highest levels that involve the greatest levels of sensitivity… and which is something that Kyrie thinks is a sandbox to throw cat poop around in and think he’s a deep thinker for it.
I would beg borrow and steal to order a PPV of a serious conversation between Kyrie and Tsai about this stuff.
