Students to distribute safety alarms for Asian American elderly -

In light of attacks against Asian American elderly that have been happening across the country, a group of students are taking matters into their own hands. The youth will be partnering with the Boston Police Department and three senior houses around Chinatown to distribute alarm devices to Asian American seniors. Cindy Ho, her sons Ryan and Kyle Ho, as well as friends Justin Mok, Alexander McKay, and Brendan Szeto held a fundraiser and ordered approximately 700 devices, which will be handed out at the Chinatown Gate.

Local institutions openly discuss increased visible anti-Asian hate in America -

The spa shootings in Atlanta are perhaps the most visible recent act of anti-Asian discrimination, but represent a larger disturbing trend. Research released by Stop AAPI Hate reveals that there were 3,800 anti-Asian racist incidents across the U.S. over the last year—a 2,500% increase from previous years. While some of these incidents can be attributed to the former president’s disparaging comments about the origins of COVID-19 and the Chinese people, there has been a long history of anti-Asian discrimination in this country. Many local academics are doing their best to expose the history that often goes untaught in schools.

亞特蘭大的槍擊事件可能是最近最明顯的反亞洲歧視行為,但也代表了更大的令人不安的趨勢。Stop AAPI Hate的研究表明去年,美國境內發生了3,800起反亞洲種族主義事件,比往年增加了2500%。儘管其中一些事件可以歸因於前總統對COVID-19和中國人民的起源的蔑視評論,但該國反亞洲歧視的歷史由來已久。 許多當地學者正在竭盡所能,揭露在學校中經常未學的歷史。訪問https://sampan.org/2021/top-news/local-institutions-openly-discuss-increased-visible-anti-asian-hate-in-america/ ,了解當地機構怎麼討論美國的反亞洲仇恨行為。 由Martin Ma報導。

Push for change as construction industry wage theft continues -

On April 15, members of the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters gathered to raise awareness on wage theft and tax fraud in the construction industry. “The pandemic has only exacerbated any and all issues that were existing before,” said Noel Xavier, organizer of the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters (NASRCC). In the past year, a record high of 10.8 percent of the total construction workforce, were laid off or discharged. In addition to the layoffs, workers were exposed to even more abuse and injustice on construction worksites as the economy fell into recession.

SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund applications open May 3rd -

On May 3, the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) opened applications for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) beginning at noon. For the first 21 days they are prioritizing applications for small businesses “by women, veterans, or socially and economically disadvantaged individuals." The latter includes Chinese restaurants due to the recent climate of Asian hate. This ties into economic disadvantages, which according to the SBA refers to “individuals whose ability to compete in the free enterprise system has been impaired due to diminished capital and credit opportunities as compared to others in the same business area who are not socially disadvantaged.” For more information about the RRF, please visit https://sampan.org/2021/business/sba-restaurant-revitalization-fund-applications-open-may-3rd/.

5月3日,美國小企業管理局(SBA)從中午開始開放餐廰振興補助金(RRF)的申請表。根據他們的網站,開放前21天內,他們將優先考慮“由女性,退伍軍人或社會和經濟上處於不利地位的個人”為小型企業申請。

處於社會不利地位的人被定義為“由於其作為一個團體的成員而不受其個人素質的影響而遭受種族或族裔偏見或文化偏見的人。”在反亞洲仇恨的氣氛中,中餐館屬於這一類。這與經濟上的劣勢聯繫在一起,根據SBA的說法,“與同一個業務領域中沒有社會劣勢的其他人相比,由於資本和信貸機會的減少,其在自由企業系統中競爭的能力受到了損害。” 要了解更多有關中文的RRF的信息,訪問 https://sampan.org/2021/business/sba-restaurant-revitalization-fund-applications-open-may-3rd/ 。Carey Lin報導。

Five tips for securing Covid-19 vaccine appointments -

Many older Americans have reported difficulty accessing vaccines. Online scheduling systems are often difficult to navigate, making them inaccessible to the 22 million seniors who lack in-home internet. Many others have struggled to secure rides to distribution sites, and even in Massachusetts, where companion vaccination guidelines were granted, challenges still exist. But with persistence - and a little help - there is no reason why every eligible American senior shouldn't get their vaccine in the next few months.

Boston will be moving into Phase 3 of the coronavirus vaccine distribution on April 19, meaning that individuals 16 years of age and older will be eligible. According to Health and Human Services Chief Marty Martinez, Asian Americans in Boston are getting vaccinated at a similar rate as white residents, and with the new phase approaching, he said that he is hopeful there will be strong vaccination turnout from this population. “We also see our Asian seniors are getting vaccinated at a comparable rate as our white seniors... because of the really important work of community groups and community organizations.” said Martinez.

“對於全國有色人種,[他們]接種疫苗的可能性較小。實際上,在波士頓市,亞裔美國人的疫苗接種率與白人波士頓人的接種率幾乎相同,” Martinez說,“我們還看到,我們的亞洲老年人正在接受與白人老年人類似的接種疫苗。這是因為無論是在唐人街的華人社區還是在多切斯特的越南社區,社區團體和社區組織的真正重要工作。看到這些社區非營利組織做大量工作以吸引居民並與波士頓合作才能做到這一點很重要。”

“I think the typical picture of Chinatown and its people is that they’re bystanders to the river of US history,” Liu said. “But I think the book shows that we’re actually in the middle of the river, that we fought the currents and we change its course sometimes.” Visit https://sampan.org/2021/arts/community-celebrates-long-time-boston-chinatown-activist-michael-lius-new-book-forever-struggle/ to hear more about Liu's new book, Forever Struggle.

一百多人聚集在Zoom上,聆聽了波士頓唐人街一生的終身活動家Michael Liu在波士頓唐人街討論他的新書《永遠的鬥爭:激進主義,身份與生存》。 Liu的書放大了有色人種對波士頓的今天做出巨大貢獻的方式。

劉說:“我認為唐人街及其人民的典型形像是,他們是美國歷史之河的旁觀者。但我認為這本書表明我們實際上在河中,我們與潮流搏鬥,有時會改變路線。” 訪問 https://sampan.org/2021/arts/community-celebrates-long-time-boston-chinatown-activist-michael-lius-new-book-forever-struggle/ ,以了解有關劉的新書《永遠的奮鬥》的更多信息。

Soall Viet Kitchen: a bright & tasty spot in Beverly -

Sa Nguyen and Mia Lunt, the owners of Vietnamese restaurant Soall Viet Kitchen, are close friends who wanted to offer authentic Vietnamese cuisine and highlight the culinary delights of their homeland. When asked the top three things that a new customer should understand about Soall Viet Kitchen, Sa replied that first, they use fresh and quality ingredients. Second, their food isn’t fancy fare, but instead, comes from a place of comfort. As children, they grew up eating many of these dishes in one form or another. And third, the restaurant is an homage to their moms who made sacrifices for the well-being of their families. They showed great strength and resilience in the face of hardship and prevailed many times over.

Repeat Break-ins in Chinatown
It Has to Be A Love Story!!!

Roslyn and Sandra Yarbrough it was a pleasure to autograph your books, but I must tell you why! While guiding my development as a writer, my wife Dot always admonish, “It has to be a love story, or why bother?” I embraced her admonition developing “The 400th From Slavery to Hip Hop!”, the book you are about to read. This love story began in slave pens long before the Emancipation Proclamation was ever a consideration. Love for one another enabled descendants of American slavery to begin their upward struggle to create the international culture referred to as hip hop today!! That trek began with their first major decision as free people, which was, to make families and build communities. Their next effort, gaining education and learn to communicate, gave their first decision real value. Family, education and communication strengthen their community building endeavors, which brought their descendants to where we are today.

I share these words with you because most individuals who played crucial roles and laid the foundation on the yellow brick road of entertainment remain unsung, while others have been denigrated, if not destroyed, by a society devoid of compassion or sympathy. America, as a society, has refused to recognize the contribution of such unsung heroes, and the crucial roles they played breaking down barriers and setting a course of survival that allowed slave descendants to emerge, as one people. Their defiance, enduring the of actions white people, which was designed to keep them locked in perpetual slavery, was the single greatest, survival act of any people the world over.

I selected two black families to illustrate this point in tell their stories in “The 400th”. First, Will Yarbrough, a husband and your father, represent the unsung in “The 400th”. Will, and many like him, battled in the shadows, breaking into the field of audio technology, was ignored, even though he played a leading role. Those who told the story of the growth and development of American entertainment, not only ignored contributions of black men, like Will, they glossed over or left their stories out altogether. More than that, they whitewash the entire story you will read, as presented in “The 400th”, which details how American entertainment began in “slave pens.

The other example I selected illustrates and reflects how a black man’s body of work is disregarded, similar to how Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s indiscretions are raised to show he was not perfect, when no human is without faults. It is the impact this black man had on my life though we never met. The son of sharecroppers, whose family escaped Mississippi under the cover of night and most fortunately, was able to find shelter among the poorest of the poor in a place called “Greens Ally.” Again, similar to a beckon to a ship far out at sea, and beyond the inspiration from my mother and new father, one image in the late 1960s, gave that child a hero that looked just like him. No “Stepin Fetchit” or “Mantan Moreland,” who had to conform to white’s “blackface” demands, this black man was suave, debonair, intelligent and ready with a solution, when his white counterpart was at “wits end!” Yes I dare speak the name of Dr. Bill Cosby, as a hero and foundation layer of opportunities for most blacks who aspired to be professionals in the entertainment industry or some other endeavors.

Unlike Will, your father, Dr. Cosby was not in the shadows. He was out front for all to see and most wanted to be him, as well as envied his success, even though he gave so many like you, a leg up beginning your career!! I was one of those who wanted to emulate such stellar success. He raised my expectation for what a black man could do in America, and I was not alone. Black men without an image of professional success in their lives, for the first time, had an example of what an individual black man could accomplish. I have never meet Dr. Cosby, but I spent the last 2 hours of his life with Dr. King, at the Lorraine Motel, and in those moments, his indiscretions did not tarnish the thoughts and image of what it meant and still means for descendants American slavery’s ability to draw on his inspiring leadership. I never imagined having such an opportunity, and I wonder today, had he lived, would his legacy be defined by his indiscretions, as Dr. Cosby’s for many???

So Sandra and Roslyn, wife and daughter, you have a very important role of supporting someone in their declining years, who gave so much to many, by opening doors and supporting those without opportunities, who have no idea what life would be like for them had men like Will and Dr. Cosby actually been the demon many make him out to be today. This is why my wife's admonition is so powerful to me!!! John Burl Smith author of “The 400th From Slavery to Hip Hop!!!!
