Yup. You’ll be heartened to know that young Asian Americans confronted that in themselves in public (at a rally in support of BLM at which all the pre-rally speakers were Black identifying, allies and wannabe allies spoke after the rally) and that when I called out the anti-Black racism of us Asian Americans more broadly there was applause. So at least some of are acknowledging that in ourselves.

Perhaps the state-sanctioned murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd will not have been in vain, though one would think that in 2020 “Black Lives Matter” would not need to be said!

I stop to miau to cats.
