Lark Yan | Privilege as an Asian American Christian Remarks with Lark | Both communities must help in the fight for racial justiceIt’s been just over one week since the unjust murder of George Floyd.
Being Asian American and being Christian comprise my identity, which dynamically influences how I understand racial injustice in America.
We forget that the touted “American Dream,” which brought Asian immigrants to America in the first place, was built upon Black slavery and oppression.
So to my fellow Asian American Christians:We are part of a unique niche in American society that seems to tell us it’s best we stay out of the fight.
Sign UpAs Asian American Christians, we must be cognizant of our privilege and how it leads to ignorance and complacency.
