Transnational Asian grief and white supremacist patriarchal violence

Content warning: white men’s violence, anti-Asian misogynist racial violence, murder, whorephobia, police harassment Art by @fufighterarts It was only one day after March 15th, commemorating 2 years after the white supremacist shooting of Muslims in Christchurch that killed 51 people. March 16th, in Atlanta, another white man with a gun targets Asian massage parlours killing 8 people, 6 of whom were Asian women. March 17th, a 39-year-old white man assaulted a 76 year old Chinese woman and she fought back in San Francisco. March 18th, a story about two 24-year-old Asian women who were run over and dragged for 100 metres in California, the aunt of one of the women believes it was a hate crime. This is only one week.    I don’t know how many times I’ve cried or sighed this week, but no amount of tears or exhalation can truly express the ranges of emotions that have been bottling up over a lifetime from anti-Asian racist misogyny. Between rage, grief, numbness and revisiting the traumas
