Edmundo he/him/ese
39:47
You’re welcome Wil. Are you available to meet up tomorrow afternoon? Maybe between 1-2:30PM?
Edmundo he/him/ese
40:44
It is VERY “American”.
Edmundo he/him/ese
44:26
Where “Americans” means white citizens (and going way back, meant only white male land owners), right?
Lori Clinchard
44:52
Thank you, Mae!
Karen Chow
45:12
Great summary of the long American history of anti-Asian racism, Mae
Edmundo he/him/ese
46:46
Wow. Thank you Dr. Lee for that concise historical frame. This is why Ethnic Studies is so important for Every person in our society to learn about.
Karen Chow
47:16
Yes, the paradox of U.S. wanting labor of immigrants of color while also not wanting them to have any avenues to have citizenship or political standing in the U.S. continues even today with agriculture and tech and other industry workers
Thyra Cobbs
47:48
It is interesting to see how the experiences of Asian Americans is similar to that of the African American community. I am glad I am here to learn about these racial issues
Karen Chow
48:53
Yes, Thyra ^^
Ed Seto
52:32
Thanks Mae. That was powerful and thought provoking
Edmundo he/him/ese
52:51
^^With you, Thyra! Yes, Karen. Also consistent with the history of the Mexican, Chicanx, Latinx communities.

If you have questions about anything presented, please feel free to direct message me them, and we'll try to direct them towards the end!
Marilyn Booye
54:26
How quickly history repeats itself, yet so slow to correct itself.
Karen Chow
54:53
Yes, Marilyn^^ Thank you, Jim, for providing more contemporary context for flareup of anti-Asian sentiment more recently
Rose Lu
55:24
I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that fairmont hotel was a Chinatown once and the fact that it was pretty close to our campus
Wil Byars
56:48
Thank you Mae. White power structures in America seem to have gone from acknowledging the economic benefits of immigration while using bullhorns to loudly fearmonger about racial differences to pretending the economic benefits of immigration don't exist while using a dogwhistle for the other half... and now we are back to bullhorn days while still there is denial about the economic half.
adriana garcia
58:47
thank you Jim for saying all that in the same sentence
Lori Clinchard
59:49
thank you, Jim!
Edmundo he/him/ese
59:50
Thank you Professor Nguyen, it helps to have this lens of the politics and sociology in play.
Karen Chow
01:01:07
I appreciate your bringing up the issue of gun control to help stem deadly tragic violence and the political barriers necessary to fight to achieve that, Jim.
adriana garcia
01:02:43
March 21st was really powerful! elder Mike Honda spoke greatly and his call to action was to focus on using your voting power for 2022 for congress elected officials
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:02:53
Yes, the blatant, brazen attacks have increased, but so has the response from multiracial/multicultural communities across the country, so this is inspiring to build on!
Wil Byars
01:03:20
Jim, thank you for mentioning actions we can take.
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:03:34
Right on, Jim.

Thank you for calling out the importance of Ethnic Studies, Maestro Hands!
adriana garcia

we can heal and thrive en comunidad
Edmundo he/him/ese

Yes, how racism has dehumanized ALL of us.

Kim Lam - Q&A
01:09:13
Compiled links will be sent again at the end for folks’ convenience, thank you for sharing Jim :)
Lori Clinchard
01:09:37
Thank you, Mr. Handa.
Karen Chow
01:09:41
I appreciate Robert Handa reminding us there are many different media channels/outlets and to be aware of the angle of coverage.
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:14:02
Yes, I too have seen a shift. Whereas in the past even journalist of color continued to frame stories from a lens that centers whiteness and the dominant lens, are now presenting stories from lens that center historically marginalized communities. “Objective” used to mean “white mainstream”.
Ed Seto
01:14:23
Thanks
Ed Seto
01:14:27
Mr Handa
Lori Clinchard
01:14:57
and white journalists shouldn’t be assumed to be inherintly unbiased
Karen Chow
01:15:04
Thanks for sharing that insight of taking on an identity as an “Asian American journalist” or a “journalist who is Asian American”. I like the shifting of “neutrality/objectivity” to not being afraid to take a stand in coverage to depict hate incidents as wrong.
Lori Clinchard

Karen Chow
01:20:20
Yes, thank you to Robert and panelists for pointing out the social inequalities that exacerbate racism and racial hostility
dean chen (he/him)
01:21:55
the reapprpriatino of janapese is waterehset too. finally got reapprorpeation
dean chen (he/him)
01:23:02
Michael chang talk about hellnville as watershed
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:29:08
Yes! Divide and Conquer is the oldest tool of oppression that is alive and well today, and we must be aware of it and not get pulled into this.
dean chen (he/him)
01:29:26
a great divide and conguer hhappen during Rodney king riot when Koreans fight agistst other ethnic group
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:30:15
Great summary question, Kimberly!
dean chen (he/him)
01:30:37
which I found stupid why would 2 minorities fight against each other when they should be uniting to combat racist
Kim Lam - Q&A
01:31:19
Yes, Jim! And Anti-Blackness needs to be addressed within Asian communities as well
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:31:25
Yes, super important Jim!
dean chen (he/him)
01:32:29
AAPI need to get together ith black life matter
Thyra Cobbs
01:32:42
^^
Thyra Cobbs
01:32:45
I agree!
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:34:13
Beautiful Mae. That really resonates on so many levels. This is a project of reclaiming our humanity, for everyone.
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:34:58
And, “How one defines the problem determines the possible solutions.
Kim Lam - Q&A
01:35:52
Thank you Dr. Lee. The model minority stereotype completely supports the current white supremacist system by giving it a justification to put other BIPOC down
dean chen (he/him)
01:35:53
model minority is actually a bad label. it allow Asian to be percieived to have previledge so they cannot be abused or be treate for hate crimes
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:36:02
“ Having a critical analysis includes questioning the way a question gets frames and what interests get served by framing the world in this way.
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:36:27
* the way a question gets framed . . .
Kim Lam - Q&A
01:36:30
and at the same time takes away from the diverse experiences of Asian Americans, especially Filipinx, SE Asians, and Pacific Islanders who historically have had it harder
Edmundo he/him/ese
01:36:32
YES!
Karen Chow
01:36:34
Yes, Mae, Kim, Dean!
Brandon Duran
