Both the left and the right discriminate against Asian Americans

  Both the left and the right discriminate against Asian Americans While superficially different, left- and right-wing versions of anti-Asian discrimination have much in common.For their part, many conservatives have highlighted the growing trend of elite universities and high schools seeking to reduce the percentage of Asian-Americans in their student bodies.

And in his decades-long career, Snoop has adopted the "can't stop, won't stop" mentality as he continues to hustle, working on TV shows such as The Voice, where he serves as a mega mentor, a new album, From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites, and expanding his lifestyle empire with close pal, Stewart, 79.

The dynamic duo, who recently participated in Jimmy Fallon's "Best Friends Challenge" on The Tonight Show, have come together on the new BIC EZ Lighter campaign, just in time for all the summer lighting occasions.

Explaining that he and Stewart loved the look and the concept of the extra-long lighter designed for lighting hard-to-reach places and keeping fingers away from the flame, Snoop says, "We're coming together to collaborate on this easy EZ Reach lighter because this is a lighter that is very beneficial to both of us."

Asian Americans at Wall Street's biggest banks say silence is no longer an option

  Asian Americans at Wall Street's biggest banks say silence is no longer an option Why Asian Americans on Wall Street from Goldman Sachs to Wells Fargo are breaking their silence.The 48-year-old Goldman Sachs banker had been inundated with articles and video clips of horrifying seemingly random attacks on Asian Americans in his home town. Then, in late March, eight people were gunned down in the Atlanta area — most of them immigrants from Korea and China — and Chi could stand it no longer.

"It's just an easy access lighter when she's cooking and making her different things And they mean when I'm lighting my candles, and lighting up that thing that killed John Wayne, EZ Reach, so I can get to it to do it," he says.

A successful music mogul and entrepeneur, the rapper and actor has never forgotten where he came from and how others impacted his life and career along the way.

Taking a minute to honor the late DMX, Snoop recalls one of his favorite memories with the fellow rapper — one that happened to be a recent reunion for both stars.

"I've had a ton of memories with them, but the Verzuz battle just stands out just because it gave us an opportunity to show the whole world that we love each other," Snoop says of the July Instagram Live music battle. "... to see two black men really entertain, really perform and who actually love each other in front of an audience and not be afraid to love each other."

"That's a moment that nobody could take away from me that, you know what I'm saying, me and him shared that ... It just went down like that. It felt good and it's timeless, so people could watch it over and over," he says.

Snoop also reflected on the 2020 Verzuz Battle during an April appearance on The Tonight Show.

"We had God in the building with us that night," Snoop said at the time. "That makes me feel good about DMX's transition to know that he's off to a better place and he's finally got his angel wings."

"Legends never die, their soul will continue to bless the world and he was a great spirit who always looked out for everybody," he added. "He always prayed for everybody."

Reflecting on DMX's legacy now, Snoop tells PEOPLE, "I feel like all the great work that he did, should be a sign of happiness to people in the world. He spoke a lot of great things. "

"He did what he was supposed to do while he was here. And that's what we got to focus on. What we're doing while we're here, look at what he did, how many jewels he left us. How much great information and testimonies, just great pieces of life that he left us: he can live on," he says.
