Racism in : As a young Chinese Canadian woman, writer, editor, and occasional translator, I was one of the witnesses to a racist incident at a Vancouver book sale in January, which continues to affect me months later.

When white people centre our "honest" and "good intentions" in conversations about racism, we are doing worse than derailing the conversation. When we centre the "hopeful change we see" while BIPOC peoples are talking about racism, we are doing worse than derailing 1/3

I'm curious to know what racist stuff went down at , seeing a lot of stuff on my Twitter feed. If anyone feels like it can I have a synopsis? If too much emotional labour dont worry about it though.

Pretty cool news: I’m now writing an ongoing column for Write Magazine in Canada. Titled “accessibility.doc,” it’ll discuss disability & accessibility in . My first column comes out next month. If there are disability issues you feel should be addressed, lemme know!

Thinking about this thread as I read this Globe piece: How doe the Globe not mention any of the controversy around a figure like Whyte and his relationship with the community in an article about his buying a venerable press?

News flash that isn’t news: White gremlins mistake dumpster fires for beacons; turn out in droves, only to get burned. Hooting and knocking back beers, they scurry back to their hidey-holes, showing off their scorch marks to other dumbass gremlins.

New drinking game: whenever a formerly unimpeachable grande dame of tweets nonsense, down a shot of cheap tequila. We've all been drunk for two years.

This isn’t meant to critique those in this thread. I just want it to be very clear that the woman was unkind and cruel. She was uninformed. She did not listen & she never apologized. She never backed down. And it was unbelievably insensitive. This is my the problem with .

I'm pretty sure no white person who shows up at...say...a diversity panel discussion would stand up and say, "I prioritize my comfort over the talent, experiences and lives of BIPOC people." We wouldn't say that, but we are performing this bias everyday. 3/3

This is written from a new perspective. An incredible work with short stories. I've lent this book to four language teachers four times that I've ended up having to buy it again.

I also want the entire able-bodied community to know that if you’re holding a LITERARY EVENT in a place that is not accessible to everyone to enter and use the bathroom, I’m not having it. I’m not there - paid or or not. Count me out. And fix yourself.

I've been thinking about and how QTBIPOC are unable to find mentors/opportunities/orgs representing our interests (eg Kundiman, Cave Canem) bc nothing like this exists in Canada. Would any QTBIPOC be interested if I created some kind of website/page to gather info for us?

I was asked to speak at CanLit orgs member event. I said I would so long as the space was accessible. They said that it was not but that they would look into it for future events. I declined. I don’t want a medal or kudos for this. I just want some decency.
