A must watch as @Sifill_LDF of @NAACP_LDF gives a master class on racism and the law, and how the history of Black Americans and Asian Americans have always been linked, even while others have tried to divide us. Thanks @myhlee for this wonderful conversation. https://t.co/dORKqjM1wU

1. I'm sick of privileged white men using their privileged platforms like Fox "News" to decry "cancel culture." 2. "White replacement theory" is really dangerous stuff in radicalizing white supremacists. https://t.co/PDdefr9Xk1

#COVID19 hit Asian small businesses earlier & harder. The data from @CNTR4growth & AAF proves it. Consumer spending by early March 2020 fell in: ⬇️ Chinatown — particularly restaurants — by almost 82% ⬇️ Flushing by 71% ⬇️ Jackson Heights by 73% https://t.co/8YRwbc4daM https://t.co/g7x6ODW9ZM

A new study of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection reveals that counties where populations of color are growing the fastest -- & where the white population is declining most significantly -- are the most likely to produce insurrectionists who now face charges. https://t.co/PpvJcsjtgI

We need more focus on the victims & their stories. People need to understand that the victims are your neighbors & friends undeserving of this hatred. This will not solve everything, but combatting racism means recognizing humanity in all of us - regardless of color. https://t.co/bWZmzJloLH

I cried twice this week. Once when young woman told me “Mom was my sanctuary.” Her mom was among 8 killed in Atlanta. I cried again when I saw video of Filipino mom kicked in face in NYC. Amidst tragedy, let’s pay tribute to AAPI moms who give us strength (THREAD) #StopAsianHate https://t.co/XGCvZxvfG3
