Have not read the Medium essay (yet), but this thread on Han Chinese anti-blackness (in the US, presumably) is good. Thanks, @jeannette_ng, for surfacing it for me.

I believe ethnocentrism is a universal problem and we are ALL called to resist it (in ourselves, in addition to others).

Frankie Huang (@ourobororoboruo) Tweeted: The thing I really want to emphasize is that the cultural context that contributes to these beliefs are complex, and I reject simply slapping the community with “political and historical illiteracy” as an explanation for why they believe in “the wrong things”. 7/

For the thousandth time, yes.

The Volatile Mermaid (@OhNoSheTwitnt) Tweeted: Every story about a white criminal has some kind of sob story as to why the guy might have did what he did and every story about a black person even when they’re victims is like “He was arrested once for stealing a pack of gum in 1987.” https://t.co/FLFBt3IxtY

A bipartisan group secretly gathered to game out a contested Trump-Biden election. It wasn’t pretty – The Boston Globe

“wasn’t pretty” is an understatement. It was ugly. Dems need to win decisively. This election cannot be close.

And we need to pass the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
