This Martin Luther King Holiday weekend, it is important for APIs to think about what kind of country we would be living in today had this great man not lived. On days like this, I like to visit the racial slur database (http://www.rsdb.org/search?q=asian). Seeing the sheer number of racist, sexist and ignorant names APIs have been called throughout our history, reminds me how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go.
How many of these racist epithets have you been called? In my 32 years, thankfully, I’ve been only called four of the names. I’m not sure if that’s a lot or a little.
