Yeye by MunkyKing
The recent rise in violent racially motivated attacks against Asian Americans is made more heinous by the fact that many of the victims are elderly.
Children of Asian immigrants remember helping their parents and grandparents study for their naturalization test—a test that didn’t prepare for the fact that they will never be seen as fully American. But now these elders are targets of hatred, vitriol, and violence. The time for silence is long over.
YEYE is the second installment of the Truth to Power line of designer toys following THE MESSENGER, a tribute to Colin Kaepernick’s historic protest. MunkyKing has collaborated with YARMS design studio to recreate the likeness the company founder’s grandfather in vinyl.
MunkyKing hopes to raise awareness of the reality of AAPI hate and violence and will donate portions of the proceeds to support aligned charities.
