I will start
Location: North America
Why you joined: I was tired of seeing Asians asking the same questions, getting gas lighted by racists, held back by self-hating Asians who care more about other races more than their own, and buying into the “post-racial” narrative to our detriment. So, I made this safe space for Asians with centralized answers to the questions that keep many of them up at night along with some means [still evolving] to address them.
Interests: automation, military technology, science, health, sustainable living, Asian advocacy
Why: To find other Asians who are tired of being oppressed. I would like to eventually dismantle the current narratives about the Korean peninsula being propagated by western imperialist media, and spread truthful information about the American Empire to Koreans outside of America, and provide an online community for woke Korean Americans.
Background: IT, economics, math, systems science
Interests: sustainability, decolonization, social justice, history, art, judo, Asian languages, diversity/inclusion/empowerment, building solidarity among Koreans, Asians, and POC, and more.
