At the San Francisco Chronicle, Cynthia Lin Sugiyama writes powerfully of her experiences with anti-Asian racism and bigotry as she grew up in the United States. Here’s how she starts her tale:

I remember the day I was targeted just because I was Asian.

I was 7, maybe 8? It was sunny. I was outdoors, happy and carefree. A group of much bigger, older Caucasian boys started walking toward me. That alone scared me. When they then proceeded to poke fun at me, saying, “Ching ching, chong chong,” laughing hysterically as they walked off, that then scarred me.

A Republican Conservation Effort 0

The white-hooded Jim Crow was once thought to be a native of the Southern United States and was considered in danger after the passage of The Voting Rights Act of 1965.  But because of conservation efforts by the Republican Party and the Supreme Court, the White-Hooded Jim Crow is thriving throughout the United States and has been spotted as far north as Wisconsin and as far west as Montana.  The white-hooded Jim Crow feeds primarily on fear, hate, and opportunism.

  • America’s Gun Problem
  • Systemic Racism
  • Systemic Sexism (and possibly–ed.)
  • Mental Health Issues
