We are all one: The role of Asians in eradicating anti-Blackness

The rise in attacks on Asians is yet another manifestation of how “[r]acism is a profound deviation from the standard of true morality.” In The Advent of Divine Justice, Shoghi Effendi provides extensive guidance to both Black and White people and admonishes that “tremendous effort is required by both races.” The purpose of this presentation is to explore the role of “other” races, particularly Asians, in contributing a “decisive share to the eradication of racial prejudice” in the United States and establishing “just relationships” that “will not designate anyone as ‘other’.”
