A little known fact about me: I minored in social & cultural analysis at NYU. I only sometimes mention this when asked what I studied at NYU because saying the phrase “social & cultural analysis” made me feel pretentious and maybe even illegitimate because, though I was born in America, I never lived there until college. I had the privilege of living in and going to school in an environment of people that looked like me, where systemic racism that defines America rarely saw me. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ The first class I took in the SCA department was called Yellow Peril (S/O JACK TCHEN ♥️ and the incredible ppl I met in that class!!!) – it taught me about the system that has valorized Asian Americans in relation to black people to support white supremacy’s agenda. The idea that Asians are the good minority is an agenda built on the further suffering and oppression of black people, and further alienates them from society. Asian Americans benefit from anti-blackness and that is why racism is rampant in Asian communities. We are not the better minority. We don’t work harder. We don’t do things differently. We just have a different set of privilege. It is so important for us to be active allies for our black brothers and sisters who have paved the way for justice all across the board!!! NOW is the time for us to show up for the black community. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Thank you to everyone on here who has posted their anger, anguish and calls for action. I am so fucking grateful and relieved to be surrounded by likeminded people who want to do and be better. Seeing this momentum is empowering to witness. But if we want this to be the revolution we need it to be, it takes way more than just posting on social media. Go out there and manifest what you’re preaching. Call people out on their bullshit. Challenge family members. Support black businesses. Drop racist friends who weigh you down. Encourage conversation. Consume media and art on how to be actively anti-racist. “Not racist” doesn’t exist. Even years of my higher education only primed me for the kind of activism I want to be a part of. And it starts with using the only platform I have to do so. ? #BLACKLIVESMATTER
