    Hi Tan,I first heard you over WHUR 96.3. I am an aspiring writer from the DC area who recently wrote an unpublished book regarding race relations in the inner city, esp between Koreans and African Americans. I also have various other non-published works that pertain to the dichotomy of the professional black male. I would love to work with you and/or get some insight on things I could do. I will travel up to NYC to buy you lunch just to get some perspective on my direction. Please give me a holla: bobby@seoulrevelations.com.
