Are you guys all speaking up about it in your circles? I found that when I spoke up and informed people, my friends have shown up for me and are reposting, signing the change petition, and some have volunteered to escort/walk around Chinatown leading up to LNY. I was initially angry that no one was speaking up except me but found that they just didn’t know because they’re not Asian and aren’t following Asian sites. But now that they are aware (and believe me it’s another thing we spoke about that they didn’t even think to seek to educate themselves on Asian matters), I have so many friends following and learning about it from Dion Lim, Nextshark, and so many other sites that I’m feeling a little hopeful. Is it performative? Possibly, but right now just being made aware of the plight is at least a step in the right direction.

I agree...empty promises ans false sense of inclusion.

it's hard not to be cynical given how skewed media is in either direction and reality is there only seems to be so much attention/bandwidth available so BLM is at forefront (which is sadly 100% necessary) but as usual- AA topics shoved to bottom of the list

Hey, I’ve been working at an agency for 10 months. Tbh the low entry level salary in marketing is getting to me. I live in a high cost of living city. I hate having to work from 9-6, sometimes skipping lunch(not paid for lunch hour), and working overtime for no over time pay. Is it worth sticking it out or switching fields? I didn’t have the best childhood and want to be self sustainable faster. I’m not a quitter but my mental health is not in a good place. Would like some advice. Thanks!
