Al Effendi: Service-Oriented Human Rights Activism

Not White. Not Black. Anti-racist. Anti-Fascist.

I experienced racial harassment and violence throughout my childhood and adolescence. As an adult, people is usually assumed that I am Latinx, white, or—correctly—mixed-race Asian American.

While I have experienced racism, I cannot understand what it is like to be a Black American. What I can do is listen to Black Americans and Leaders of Color, follow their leads, and hope that my own experiences with racism and with white privilege will make me a better helper.

Hit me. I can take it.
