If you want to watch a good documentary about the pipe dream that is the “American Dream”, how big of a trap/scam the fitness industry can be, how prevalent steroid use really is in the general public and athletics for business, how skewed our perception of body image in fitness is through manipulation, and the hypocrisy that runs America in general, check out Bigger, Stronger, Faster*…one of the best I’ve ever seen.

A friend posed a question to me about Asian-Americans in civil rights while we were discussing Ferguson…this is what I said.

A question that I hope isnt dumb. Where are the Asian civil rights leaders? The voices that call for equality for that community? As general as that is I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. Need there be any? Or are people dandy with the way things are ?

Nah valid question. Something I ask myself all the time and a reason I gravitated towards Malcolm and Martin when it came to civil and human rights, because there’s not a face that represents what I look like. I can’t speak for all Asian-Americans obviously but it seems our communities are really centered around our culture and many are still 1st-2nd gen immigrants and our roots are still connected to those home countries in-terms of importance (where they are a majority, hence PoC being an American-derived term) so its harder to understand the injustices and inequality for many because they’re the majority where they grew up (a big issue of disconnect with me and my sister and the rest of my family). Further more those who are first gen immigrants don’t know much about American history and how deep and brutal it is because they don’t learn about it coming from their native country. It’s really discouraged in some families to speak up and cause trouble (issue of model-minority stereotype ideal of just “accept things the way they are, go to good school, get good job, etc.”). Oppressive colonialism is something many Asian countries have encountered obviously (India-GB, Hong Kong-GB, Vietnam-France, Philippines-US, South Korea emulation of the US, you name it…) and it just becomes a way of life sadly. There’s not many leaders of a revolution like a Ho Chi Minh nor the level of nationwide education on such topics like there needs to be.

As far as Asian-Americans who have been here for many generations, mainly those in California/West coast regions, there’s alot of work being done (Asian-American students @ UC-Davis supporting those in Ferguson for example) today but we’re still a small minority in the country and underrepresented. You actually see many Eastern Asian-Americans helping support Huey Freeman/Black Panthers, and the black power movement in general throughout the ’70s/80s (search “yellow peril supports black power”), Chinese-American rights activist groups form after the ’50s when the Chinese Immigration Act was implemented, Japanese-Americans activists rising up after the internment camps when many of their family members were fighting FOR the US during WWII, and the Asian-American movement in the ’70s after the Vietnam War. Namely my favorite Asian-American face of activism is Yuri Kochiyama (Japanese), supporter and friend of Malcolm X. You just never learn about her in history books, or much about any non-black history/immigrant PoC civil rights activity in any of our government-controlled history books…but she’s so important to the cause of social justice.

Sorry if I seem like I’m ranting alot, it’s just easy for me to talk about.

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious.
