The questions these facts raise are tough for the Asian American community. How is it that Asian women are welcomed, or at least accepted, into the ranks of a movement dedicated to advancing a white supremacist/nationalist agenda? Are Asian women somehow accepted in their own right, or merely as second-class replacements for “corrupted” white femininity that the alt-right loathes? For years though, discussion on this topic has been avoided, deflected, or outright suppressed, and now the disastrous consequences are plain for all to see. Not only are we now faced with the reality that there are Asian sisters embedded into the most virulently racist political force of our time, but we are also caught flat-footed as a community because we’ve never let ourselves understand, much less combat, this phenomenon and resulting fallout.
