#NotYourMule: The Complicated, Uncomfortable History of Interracial Relations and What to Do About It

#OscarsSoWhite and #NotYourMule have raised the complex and often uncomfortable issue of interracial relations — especially the relationship between the black and AAPI communities. Does cross-community collaboration exist — and should it? What role do AAPIs play in the broader social justice movement, and should we expect black activists to speak for us? How can we overcome the prejudices that hold us back, and when and how should we speak with a united voice? (This is an off-the-record session, unless moderators indicate otherwise.)
