Dear friends,

The world we live in is absolutely more diverse than most probably realize. The world we live in right now is dominated by hate; vitriol, and of course right-wing politics because that’s apparently what conservativism is. It’s apparently an outlet to hate and discriminate towards another in the name of righteous beliefs. To the many faces old and young that have been targeted because you’re Asian — virtual hugs to each of you. Like many things we face in our lives we will overcome this and do so together.

But there is no place for that hate anymore. Everyday thousands of you from all walks of life log on to chat with us; read our quirky take on the daily headlines, and even just to casually share a conversation online. During the pandemic, we’ve had more people including many of our Asian-American friends video chat in simply just to talk.

That’s what neighbours are for. We aren’t physical neighbours (although pretty sure that would be a fun block to live on) but we are digital neighbours. In the eyes of hate we stand with you today.

We’ve all been hurt by the system that has programmed families and their loved ones for generations to hate the next after them. We’ve all been hurt in different ways; different moments, and different times in our lives. That does not however mean that one should negate the other.

I hope that as time goes on and we work to eradicate hate as much as we can that people learn to simply be kinder to each other. The pandemic has taught me how much I simply love hanging out over a cup of tea or coffee and having a conversation with a neighbour (whether offline or online.)
