I keep hearing about Asian owned and themed businesses are being vandalized and harassed during this crisis. I can’t stand that. Every time I hear about it my heart breaks and my anger rises a little more. I know exactly what it feels like to be unfairly targeted for merely existing, and I’m not okay with it happening to anyone else.
People have stepped up and helped me in times of my emotional turmoil and traumas, its time to help our Asian population as well. I don’t have much to offer, I get paid $40 this month, but I am willing to donate every cent to a recently vandalized Asian business owner just to prove that empathy and compassion actually exist.
To contact me you must be a humanist…
“A real humanist can be identified more by his trust in the people, which engages him in their struggle, then by a thousand actions in their favor without that trust.” (“Pedagogy of the Oppressed” by Paulo Freire )
