Asian-American Allyship 101: “What Have They Done For Us?” and Other Myths That Hinder Allyship

Asian-American Allyship 101: “What Have They Done For Us?” and Other Myths That Hinder Allyship

Host: Tazrean Hossain

In this episode, we will debunk the arguments that Asian-Americans often use against Black Lives Matter, such as “What have they done for us?”, “We worked hard to succeed, why can’t they?”, and “We’re minorities too, so how could we even help?” through the lens of the model minority myth. We will learn about how Black activists have aided Asian-Americans in achieving civil rights. This episode will give you talking points for your Asian family members who don’t want to support Black Lives Matter and prove why arguments against Asian-American allyship are futile.
