'Black Lives Matter' To Me Because

The U.S. is in a painful reckoning right now. The truth about ourselves is messy, painful, and necessary.

My own reckoning has led me to examine where I fit into the historical context of this country as an Asian American daughter of first generation immigrants.

I found this childhood memory in my brain that I remembered because I didn't understand it at the time. I'm pulling it out now because I think it is a small piece of a larger puzzle.

This is not an easy conversation in the Asian American community, but let's have them anyway.
