Anonymous asked: What are your opinions on what's going on in Ferguson?

Thank you for asking this question! I think a large part of the Asian/Asian-American community has been too shy about sharing their opinions or even talking about the situation. 

I’ll start off with this: at this point in the investigation, I’m not sure there is enough evidence to justify the abomination directed towards Officer Wilson. That being said, I am very interested to see how the investigation will play out and how the facts will be displayed.

While I initially applauded the media for bringing light to the ongoing racial injustices that occur daily throughout the country, I now am wary that the attention towards rioting—and the drama of it all—will detract from the underlying issue that needs to be addressed: the institutional structures that make such (antiblack) police brutality possible and frequent in our country. 

Racial tensions are high right now, and we desperately need to ride on them and open up new channels of dialogue, not just for blacks and whites, but for anyone, of any race and ethnicity, who calls America her country.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

Then I realized that my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside. I was so foolish and ignorant — I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.

The scariest part about letting someone in is that they could take one look inside of you and never come back.
