earlier this week, we saw the latest of many hate crimes on the rise against Asian Americans. targeting Asian-owned massage parlors in the Atlanta area, a white supremacist murdered eight people, including six Asian women — citing them as a “temptation” he needed to eliminate — in a mass ...shooting.
as white dominated media continues to deflect and place the burden of healing and advocacy on communities of color, the extent of the white supremacy that we’re ALL up against only becomes clearer.
in order to #StopAsianHate, eradicate white supremacy, and dismantle all systems of oppression, we must unite in a strong, continuous, and creative intersectional effort against hate-based violence.
to quote artist @nerdybrownkid: “Just as communities of color call out and fight white supremacy together, we will grieve, and heal together. This is our magic.”
