China Mac, William Lex Ham Organize #TheyCantBurnUsAll Rally in LA
Following the recent success of their crowdfunding campaign to help Chinese businesses in New York City’s Chinatown, rapper China Mac and actor William Lex Ham are coming to Los Angeles for the #TheyCantBurnUsAll rally and march.
“Anti-Asian Hate Crimes are on the rise, and we cannot let our community suffer in silence any longer,” Ham said. “We MUST realize that as diverse the Asian diaspora is, Asians are generally treated the same in our country. So.. WE MUST UNITE, STAND UP, AND FIGHT BACK”
“Now is OUR time to SPEAK UP about OUR experiences with hatred, racism and injustice,” Lee wrote in her Instagram post. “I took a stance for my children, future grandchildren and OUR future generations so that they may NEVER accept this conduct as the norm.”
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
