The model minority
As the COVID pandemic brought the conversation of racial disparities to the forefront in new ways, so did we.
TheModelMinority.com is a website that highlights past and current examples of Black and Asian solidarity. The idea came to Ephraim Adamz after writing and recording the song "Stop Asian Hate / Solidarity" as a form of peaceful protest. The song and website was launched during May in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The landing page is in its early stages, but over time will be packed with content to move the movement forward. The mission is to curate a hub of information that embraces the unity between the two communities in a way that is both intersectional and affirming. When participants arrive at the homepage the first thing they will see is a welcome greeting from transgender rights activist Gia Gunn of RuPual's Drag Race.
