“永远有我 就算世界都冷漠”
You’ll always have me, even if the world turns cold
― Angel, EXO-K

“在心痛 如果能回到 那段幸福 “
If hurting more means we can return to that piece of happiness
―  Breath, Chen and Zhang LiYin

“只要在你身边 生命变得光彩”
As long as I’m by your side, life becomes dazzling
― What is Love, EXO-K

“我望眼欲穿   看我看不到的你”
I gaze longingly at the you whom I cannot see
― Miracles in December, EXO-K

Asian American youth need to learn about their history. Learn about the Chinese Exclusion Act and Angel Island. Learn about how the US military treat Asian women in the countries they were stationed in. Learn about the Japanese internment camps. Learn about the hate crimes committed against Asian people. Learn about what the US did in Vietnam and Korea during the wars. 

Understand that Asian people will never be able to attain the status that white people have as long as a white supremacist system exists. Asian people will never be equal to white people under white supremacy, no matter how hard they work or how “successful” they become.

The goals of Asian American activism must be to dismantle white supremacy, or it will not accomplish anything, especially not in the long run.
