SUMMARY: A wide ranging discussion with leaders in Black and Asian communities that touches on the anti-Asian racism statement, the model minority myth, the weaponization of white supremacy and how Asian and Black communities have been racist against each other and how the two communities need to unite.
KEY QUOTE: “Knowing our (American) history of anti-Asian sentiments – systemic things like immigration policies in our country reminds us that the things going on now with the uptick in anti-Asian discrimination during the corona virus isn’t something new. These are not caused by the virus. The virus is revealing something that is already in some people’s hearts. It is already in the systems in play with white supremacy.”
