There is no excuse for anti-Asian racism. If you are my friend, do not tell me not to let it get me down, even if you are doing it out of love for me. Don’t tell me that I shouldn’t feel threatened because my son is threatened. He is everything I have left in the world. Don’t tell me that they are cowards, or weak – because if that piece of shit had got his hands on us, he would have hurt us. Yeah, its cowardly hitting a 13 year old and a small woman, doesn’t mean it hurts less, or is less dangerous. Don’t try and comfort me.
I’m going to march the next time I see one is organized. I’m taking Boy, he needs to see the community are standing together and feel strength in numbers. People deserve to walk the streets of SF in peace and safety, without abuse or threats of violence, especially those targeted by race.
My heart is just about broken. You cant TELL ME to be ok. You can’t tell me that I can’t let the past control me. For fucks sake, I was half killed over twenty years. Of course I am shaken up beyond someone who hasn’t been on the receiving end of it for years. I know what a fist feels like when a grown man hits you.
My God. What have we become! I got chased for a block and a half, with my son. I was threatened with physical violence. He tried to put his hands on my and my child, racial slurs were used. Why is this ok because he looks Asian? Why! Even a member of the local school board had to be fired for calling Asian students, parents and kids House ____. What the fuck is wrong! I’ve totally had enough.
Ill see you guys tomorrow. I’m going to watch a movie and sit here and cry. I fucking hate this world. Beam me up scotty.
