Host: Tazrean Hossain
In this episode, we will break down what it really means to be an ally as an Asian-American. Now that we know the history of prejudice between Asian-Americans and Black-Americans and understand why the arguments made against allyship aren’t valid, how do we, as Asian-Americans, actually become better allies and hold ourselves accountable? This episode will talk about what allyship looks like and how to practice accountability, from my perspective as a South Asian at a predominantly white school.
