I know the irony of *me* writing an article about EA and SA voices drowning out other Asian voices is very apparent, so I may just help someone else pitch it :) Identify yourself to me on Tw if you want—we can be friends :)
Right? Minoritized people can assume the mantle of solidarity but without real commitment to addressing the *differences* in oppression & rectifying them intra-community, it’s fake. Solidarity doesn’t happen naturally. It has to be more mindful than that.
<3 Thank you for your comment. While I alluded to this issue of "Asian America" being flattened into a monoculture—I could have pointed directly to East & South Asian voices shouting over others. I'm writing a separate article on that, but it could have been in this one too.
