What Asian Americans Owe African Americans


Trayvon Martin. Eric Garner. Sandra Bland. Michael Brown.

It feels like nearly every day I'm confronted with yet another video in the news with raw scenes of violence against African Americans. We are in the middle of a civil rights emergency and the Black Lives Matter movement is on the front lines.

I am horrified by these deaths. But what is equally disturbing to me is how many Asian Americans distance themselves from these attacks on African Americans, as though what happens to another community of color has nothing to do with Asian Americans. This separation is destructive and perpetuates the model minority myth, a racial stereotype deeply ingrained in the American psyche asserting that Asian Americans aren't like other (read: lesser) minority groups.

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
