Over the past few days, P&P has been gotten a sudden influx of followers. Because there’s a lot of new faces, I wanted to take a moment to explain to you what this blog is all about. But first of all, I’d like to thank you for joining me on this ride. You are awesome.
You can think of Prejudice & Politics as a government class, but funnier and more relatable. What I do is give readers a sincere look at international relations. Through the actions, words, and stories of personified characters, you get an intimate look at the history and beliefs of a number of dynamic and interesting countries. Basically, I turn politics into narrative stories featuring funny, powerful, intriguing, silly, depraved, and sometimes just plain bizarre characters. You learn something, but it doesn’t actually feel like a chore because you’re having fun. You can then take what you’ve read and dig deeper into the issues, form your own opinions, and start some great discussions.
If you want to read more of P&P but aren’t sure where to start, try these:
Mutually Assured Delusion – All hell breaks loose during a mock UN meeting when North Korea becomes a nuclear superpower.
Bilateral – The world can be a dark place when people hurt each other for the sake of power, ambition, and hatred.
With Closers – Central Europe is an odd bunch, especially the ones who speak German.
Like a Married Something – China and North Korea’s relationship is kind of like that one Facebook status. It’s complicated.
Folie à deux – Taiwan gets a truly remarkable and terrifying opportunity: Seeing the world from North Korea’s point of view. But things go south very quickly, and America’s excessive profanity is just the start.
Twitter – This isn’t a story, but you should totally follow P&P on Twitter because sometimes I make funny tweets. Sometimes.
Finally, say hi in the comments section! Introduce yourself and talk to me about politics, this blog, or your favorite kind of humor. I want to hear your ideas, suggestions, and everything in between.
