My Asian-American Awaking: Realizing I am a Person of Color comments on Connie Zhou’s article ” “The Asian-American Awakening: That Moment You Realize You’re Not White,” and how are Asian-American identities are shaped. Mine discusses the opposite side of the spectrum, instead of realizing that I am not white, it elaborates on the complexities of “Am I a Person of Color?” It highlights how Asian-Americans are perceived to be white, while also not being considered People of Color. The “Yellow Power” movement was a moment of clarity for my Asian-American identity as it showed solidarity of Asian-Americans with other communities of color during the Civil Rights Era.
My office has created a system in which you can contact me in a more efficient manner. We have created a community suggestion box where you can make requests asking for room reservations, ask for help navigating the ASUC, or make comments in general.
