Profiles of KAD Relations with the Black Community
Korean adoptees (KADs) can be a bridge to the Black Lives Matter movement. The Black Lives Matter movement is intended to highlight that in the US Government and in its criminal justice system, Black lives are valued less than White lives. Even though Black Lives Matter is about the Black community, Yi Woo Ae, a Korean adoptee, establishes that our lives are connected as minorities, and even intertwined. KADs, being both white adjacent and Asian, can talk with whites, Asians, and others in a way that supports the movement.
