Hasan Minhaj on racism within the Asian community

I'm a bit of a sucker for American satire shows, and one of my favourites is The Patriot Act hosted by Hasan Minhaj (former correspondent of The Daily Show). They recently released a YouTube exclusive, talking about the case of George Floyd and the importance of not staying silent. The reason I'm sharing it though is because the video also explored something I didn't expect - racism within the Asian community.

It was very eye-opening for me. I often forget that division within minority communities is actually quite common, such as bi-erasure and ace-denial within the LGBTQAI+ community. One of those things that reminds me nobody is completely free of the harmful views society can teach us, and that we all need to make an effort to check ourselves.

Curious about what y'all think, and if you have any experience to share around this. :)

All behaviour is a need trying to be met.
