My American Han

Reblog from

And now I sit here with my American han - surrounded by fear. Fear that the color of my skin and the shape of my eyes will make me a target. Fear that racial injustice will always prevail. Fear that my child will always be judged by the color of her skin and not by the content of her character. Fear that I cannot keep my child safe because of the color of her skin. Fear that I will always be an outsider despite the fact that this is my home country. Fear that this oppression will never be lifted.

We cannot continue on in this path. We have to change. We must move forward for justice and equality. It is imperative that live in a country where Black lives matter - where ALL lives matter.
