But you speak English so well!

Asian Americans are constantly reminded that they don’t “belong” in America, despite their contributions of building up this great nation. We are reminded in ways big and small, such as the seemingly harmless remark of “but you speak English so well!” The Civil Rights Movement paved the way for all minorities of color, but we have to remember that the movement is far from over. We need solidarity if we want to continue to progress.
