29-Brown Silence and Black Lives

Hufsa Ahmad, MSW, Award-Winning Mental Health Speaker & Comedian

Hufsa and I discuss how a system of White Supremacy has upheld some Asian communities as “model minorities,” thus pitting Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) against one another.  We discuss the need to be allies in our fight against oppression and discrimination in all forms, in hopes of not perpetuating systemic racism.  Most importantly, we discuss the need to openly talk about Brown Silence, while acknowledging that BIPOC face different challenges and levels of racism that also needs to be addressed.
