This just cannot go on
Can’t keep apologizing for my meekness
I want to stop looking over my Asian shoulders when I walk at night
I can’t keep worrying about my friend when she’s a few minutes late from putting coins in the parking meter
My Asian father who doesn’t like being called Asian
He is Chinese
He is Korean
He is Filipino
He is American
Why should he be called names he doesn’t even have in his lexicon?
My mother should not have to worry that she’ll be bashed on the head when she’s buying fish at fresh farms
Call your senators please!!!
Why must I worry about my Asian ass being kicked?
I know more Spanish than Japanese
My palate may be Asian but I cook Mac and cheese for my kids
I take them to Great America
I walk my dogs at Horner Park
Please call your senators right now
This just can’t keep going on
We are not the virus
It’s the hate we need to stop from spreading.
