16: In today’s episode, I’m joined by three close friends and family members, all Asian-American women. We have a very open and raw conversation about the increase in violence against Asian-Americans during this pandemic, our experiences with racism, and our own identities. In this vulnerable and at times painful discussion, we touch on: 

– How racism has shaped our own identities, and the untangling of a lifetime of microaggressions and feeling othered 

– How you can show up for your Asian friends right now (as well as what not to do)

– The fetishization of Asian women in terms of historical context and our own experiences that have been bizarre and offensive

How the “Model Minority” myth was started, how it’s linked to white supremacy, and why it’s damaging for Asian identity

– The intersectionality of gender and race for Asian-Americans
