Hello and welcome to another episode of Life Stuff 101.
This episode is being released in early June, 2020.
We are still in the middle of a pandemic and my neighbours to the south, specifically the black folks of the United States and elsewhere, are mourning and grappling with yet another tragedy of a black man who was killed in the custody of four police officers in Minneapolis on Monday, May 25th.
As an Asian Canadian and someone committed to anti-racism, I do not think or claim to know the experiences of black folks or about the history of systemic racial injustice and violence in the US or here in Canada.
But I am committed to listening and learning.
I will be sharing some of the resources that I’ve been learning from with the hopes that they will help with listening and learning for you, too.
Racism is a really uncomfortable thing to think and talk about, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that being and staying comfortable doesn’t move any of us forward toward change.
