In Little Rock to say goodbye to Brent Renaud today. As tragic as it is, I’ve been encouraged being here with fellow former students of @DCTVny’s ProTV program that Brent and his brother Craig mentored. His legacy lives on. πŸ–€time.com/6158039/brent-…2

I devoured (yes, sorry) @lisaling's new HBO Max docuseries in one sitting, so it was great to talk with her about the ways the show and the people featured in it use food as a vehicle for unlocking Asian American stories that have gone untold. huffpost.com/entry/lisa-lin…

That FedEx facility in Indianapolis is a workplace with over 90% Sikh employees. Don’t you dare say the mass shooting was attributed to a β€œmental illness”. It was hatred. It was racism. And it was targeted.

So i've been reading up on Asian American history. Not the fantastic stuff we know about inventions, medicine, philosophy and more. But some of the darker stuff not a lot of us know about due to white washing and censorship of "US History". A thread:

In less than 48 hours, we had a historic Asian Oscar moment with multiple firsts in 93 yearsβ€”then a mass shooting targeting 3 Asian-owned businesses. This is how terrorism worksβ€”you’re not allowed to feel safe, accepted, or valued. We can resist. Take up space. Make noise.
