Twitter Web App : @ White people who have joked about Asian sex workers and massage parlours, have said 'love you long time' in *that* accent, have suggested that my 'desirability' as an Asian woman is a privilege... what a beautiful day to donate to the following causes:

Twitter Web App : I want to know their names, who and what they loved, the people they had waiting for them at home, everything they hoped for. I want to know the fabric of their days and the contexts of their lives.

Twitter for iPhone : don’t just check on your AAPI friends. read up on the Chinese Exclusion Act, US occupation of the Philippines, Japanese internment camps. listen to AAPI women when they talk about the racist, sexualized messages they’ve heard all their lives. we’re all tired and it’s just not new

Twitter for iPhone : Anti-Asian American bigotry isn’t new. It’s been built into US legal code since the 1800s. What’s new is that Asian Americans are speaking up more collectively. If you are not AAPI, a major first step is recognizing that this won’t go away with COVID. Speak up.
