At that point, I reiterated the idea that mainstream media is a tool in promoting anti-blackness and Asian Americans are often a bolt to fasten that message.
As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever.
It makes me proud to know that I am part of a community that is proactive, visible and vocal about taking a stand against anti-blackness and aligning on the side of social justice for all.
However, none of this is shown in the news coverage I'm following about post-Ferguson protests.
Lee's, Tran's and Cho's stories contradict the mainstream narrative by revealing the reality of many Asian Americans as being impoverished, 1st generation, targeted by law enforcement and victims of injustice - from police brutality to deportation.
When I first saw Peter Liang's headline surface amidst the outrage of police brutality, I could feel the collective cringe of Asian Americans across the country shaking heads in angst.
