There have been more than 3,800 reported anti-Asian hate incidents in the US since the start of the pandemic, according to Stop AAPI Hate.
The status quo has depended on economic stability -- ever more fragile -- but also on effective repression and people's passivity.
You could feel the storm brewing. Something was “blowin” in the wind. But it was a whirlwind. My forthcoming memoir on navigating the storms.
Interview with Dee Knight
I have lived in New York City since 1974 (most of the time), except 1987 to 1990, when I lived and worked with the Sandinistas in Nicaragua. I lived in Toronto, Canada, from August 1968 until August 1974. I graduated from high school in 1964, with a scholarship to study at the University of Oregon in Eugene, but instead I went to a Jesuit seminary in Los Gatos, California, where I lasted just four months — didn’t much like silent penitence or the prospect of lifelong celibacy! My six years in Canada form Chapter 3 in My Whirlwind Lives.
