Hello! Welcome to COTL, a discussion place for BIPOC. Posted the first 3 Wednesdays of the month
- We ask that only those who identify as people of color participate in this discussion. White Avocados, while valued members of this community, should remain in ‘lurk’ mode.
- Shaming and hateful speech are unacceptable.
- Please keep potentially traumatic content safely behind spoiler tags.
- Nobody on this thread is more or less a person of color than anyone else. (We will not set clearly delineated boundaries on who qualifies as a ‘person of color.’ As a starting point, this thread uses the definition of ‘non-European heritage of sufficient prominence to affect one’s navigation of a society built on white normativity.’ However, we recognize that there are identities which skirt either side of the divide. If people feel that they meaningfully experience the identity of being a person of color, then they are welcome to participate.)
Check in, how are you all doing, in general?
As many of you know, there was a mass shooting in Monterey Park, (a city in Southern California with a large Asian American community) at the beginning of the Lunar New Year. Soon after, there was a shooting in Northern California. How are you feeling and coping over this?
