Dear Asians, You Are Not White
Eun-ji Yi

There is a lot here I agree with: the model minority mythology hurts PoC solidarity more than it helps. If in doubt these comments range from supportive to defensive to offensive. For all the positive gains the silence is damning — there’s still C-level ceilings, there’s still slights, there’s still rampant white washing and appropriation and fetishistic treatment, and there’s still the fact that those who marched with flags and emblems are just as likely to yearn for Asian Americans to get to the back of the bus again.
