The fate of this country, and my family in it has been weighing on me since before the election. I love America, and I'm not going to give up on the idea that people of different backgrounds can live together peacefully, support one another and progress together. We need to look honestly at ourselves and be willing to accept hard truths about our own racism and sexism, and be willing to discard the ideas that hold us back, no matter how firmly entrenched they are.
My comic about endings, beginnings, fear and elections, Who Does He Favor? is posted at the Los Angeles Review of Books. I made this comic in celebration of the 20 year Anniversary of the Smithsonian Asian American Literary Festival. I feel sure that we are more able to see the inequities, racism and violence in our foundations at this moment. Protect your eyes from all the glory, but don't close them.
