Viruses in movement…, Resistance in movement…, The US in movement…, Intersectional solidarity in movement…

[The US is aflame, the people of the US are afire… Here, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, while declaring their solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement and for the broad river of movement that has emerged and is flooding the country, also self-critically reflect on and call out the anti-Black racism within the Asian community in the US and the “'model minority' myth that preaches a racist social order” :

> The Asian American Commission of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a statement in support of Black Lives Matters. The statement calls out Asian community's anti-black racism and how it benefits from the 'model minority' myth that preaches racist social order.
> It also has a reference to the dalit-black panther connections which indireclty helped brahminical castes of 1970s get a foot in the social and cultural milieu of America as Indians.
