This illustrated story was created by Angel Trazo, an artist and aspiring scholar from the SF Bay Area. She is currently in the Master’s program at UCLA in Asian American Studies. The story comes from a friend of mine who wishes to be anonymous. It recounts the all too familiar racist harassment that people of color encounter these days. The best way to fight back to expose the hatred and xenophobia that Trump promotes. It will take a lot of work, but we must raise up voices of compassion and dampen the voices of hate. Here’s Angel’s interpretation of my friend’s encounter with the TSA at the Nashville airport.
