Asian police and the complicity of Asian Americans in anti-blackness

If you’re a non-Black Asian American, you need to read this, critically analyze your sense of justice, and share it.

It shames me so much that the first nationwide, mass protest by Asian Americans in years was in defense of a cop who killed someone. We can do better and we can be better in our demands for justice and equality.

“But we must recognize that the ability to post about Pokemon Go or basketball players in the wake of assaults on black lives is a luxury and privilege AAPIs have because of our (social and phenotypical) proximity to whiteness. The luxury to think about anything else at this time but the murders of black lives, fear for your own mortality, and systemic racism is a privilege.”
