Fun Memphis family trip to finish off my b-day celebration and it’s summer!!! First stop was the Civil Rights Museum:) So so cool to see and discover even more of MLK jr. who inspires me through everything he did and was. (I’m telling y’all, it made me shed a few tears to be there.) Then had to go grab some Central BBQ which was delicious!😋Walked off all the food as we saw some of God’s unique and beautiful creatures at the Memphis zoo:) (Lions and Wolves are my favorite.🦁❤️🐺) Finished off the night with Aldo’s pizza, riding on a trolley (first time!), and some amazing (the closest any has ever gotten to Gammy’s) cheesecake!!🍰 So. Good.🤤 Over all, it was a good day full of joy, motivation, education (you learn a lot at a museum and a zoo😉), fun, and family:)❤️ #memphistrip #mlkjr #ilovemyfamily

•1/2• First day of Summer Break/Bekah’s 16th bday family celebration Memphis trip! 🎉 Wasting no time checking off our Summer Bucket List. ☑️ First stop: the National Civil Rights Museum, at the place of MLK Jr’s death, the Lorraine Hotel. Bekah has long loved MLK Jr, & we so long for our family to be educated, informed, & aware of the realities many of our brothers & sisters have, & continue, to live through. Sobering & moving exhibits, many that brought tears, heartache, & a fire within to stand for what is right. So many opportunities for discussion & real talk as a fam. Your dream continues, Dr King...we’re dreaming with you & raising up more freedom fighters, by His grace! ❤️🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿❤️ #ncrmuseum @ncrmuseum #bekahbday #summertime #summertimeishere #summerbucketlist2018 #mlkjr #lorrainehotel #mlk50

I'm back with another Selma post!! Because I only posted a picture of the bridge and not the ~full story.~ So here we are. The first pictures were taken at the National Voting Rights museum, and then we went to visit a few significant churches - Brown Chapel A.M.E. Church, which was the starting point for the Selma to Montgomery marches, and also hosted SCLC (MLK etc), and the First Baptist Church, which was the SNCC headquarters for the Selma campaign (John Lewis etc). #selma #selmatomontgomery #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #protest #votingrights #johnlewis #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingjr #mlk #mlkjr

Admittedly, this is one of the hardest lessons I'm having to learn as an adult. Mainly because it's a statement that ties directly into why we are who we are. A good person doesn't simply become a good person. They have to work at it and maintain it forever. To do that one must first overcome the adversities within the origins of their character.

My father said,”Somewhere I read that the greatness of America was the right to protest for rights.” Sadly, when women and men in America are disallowed to protest for rights, their rights are suppressed and they are silenced. That should be unacceptable in this nation we all call home, the United States of America. The greatness of America is the right to protest for rights.

Martin Luther King, Jr. sure knew his stuff, and he fought for far more causes than most people realize. #LaborUnions #MLKJr #History #CollectiveBargaining

“Understand, once and for all, that none of this has anything at all to do with politics or justice or patriotism or even morality. This is about business for NFL owners. This is about money, for owners already rich beyond avarice. These men and women did not just buy into the cockeyed narrative that this is actually about patriotism, of a lack thereof. That is only a sidebar here. They simply decided that football players, even a handful of them, kneeling during the playing of the anthem was extremely bad for business. And we simply can't have that, or, as the great Red Smith used to say, before long these owners will be riding bicycles to work.” .
Powerful and accurate AF!
.
The @nfl’s new policy on banning one’s right to kneel during the National Anthem reminds me of the famous #MalcolmX quote: “If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” Tragic!!! #IsThisAmerica?!?! #ThisIsAmerica!!!
.
This #MLKJr quote is also relevant: “All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’ If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn't committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of the press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.” .
To #CreateAnotherAmerica, #KeepKneeling!!! ✊🏿 #PowerToThePeople #PowerToThePlayers .

Repost By @valeisha: Thank you @nydailynews for nailing this cover and narrative ...the kneel is to protest police brutality. Banning that from happening is dishonoring the flag.

Keeping with the house theme... Martin Luther King Jr's house!!!!! This was the house he and his family lived in while he was the pastor at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. You can see the spot on the porch where they were bombed - the bomb caused some damage to the front of the house but nothing too bad. A crowd of people came to see that they were alright and MLK and Coretta had to come out and send everyone away. We weren't able to take pictures inside, but it was an adorable, modest house. The usual living spaces, small dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a tiny bathroom. At least some of the furniture was theirs, but to be honest, our tour guide was an older gentleman who was more likely to go off on semi-related tangents than he was to actually give us info on the Kings and their life in this house! There were these extra sliding doors for the dining room, so meetings allegedly happened in there so as to have extra protection from bombings. One of my favorite parts was the phone in the hallway - our tour guide talked about how they would get calls at all hours of the night, many nasty, threatening calls, but as a pastor and a leader of the civil rights movement, MLK would always have to answer in case anyone needed him. And he would always be polite, even if they were threatening calls. #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingjr #mlk #mlkjr #dexteravenuebaptistchurchparsonage #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #blackhistory #montgomery

“Maybe it’s just because we’re known as the ‘model minority’ and we sweep a lot of things under the rug”
I recently watched a video from @nbcasianamerica about Vincent Chin. In 1982, he was beat to the brink of death, in short, for being Chinese. He was 27 years old.
Two men tracked him down from a club, where he was out celebrating his bachelor party, and beat him with a baseball bat. In a coma, Vincent died 4 days later due to injuries to his head. Legal ramifications at the time meant that the men who committed the crime, were only given (basically) a slap on the wrist.
They had mistakenly thought Vincent was Japanese, and blamed him for the auto industry layoffs of Detroit’s greater metro area.
Watching this video and hearing his story, made me angry. But it also made me afraid. Afraid for my friends and my family who sometimes speak their native languages out in public. Afraid for my fellow brothers and sisters of color who share my black hair and almond eyes. Afraid for my nephew, who’s still learning about the world and seeing it with fresh eyes and a happy heart. Who has no idea his neighbors might look at him differently.
It’s 2018. I didn’t need this video to remind me that still, in 2018, being black, Muslim, Hispanic, gay, etc, you name it-just about anything other than “traditional” American, can mean a target on your back. I am American, born and raised, tried and true.
But I’m not even sure what that means anymore. When did America stop being a country of immigrants? When did we stop appreciating the beauty in diversity? When did we stop “[holding] these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” America, I might not look exactly like you, I speak more than one language and I am proud of all the aspects that make up who I am. I am equally proud to be Chinese as I am to to be American. We are still a melting pot. We are still stronger united. Embrace our differences. We’re all in this together.
