Each of these videos brought me to tears and anguish. I am a first-generation American who has aspired to reach this "American Dream" that wasn't made for people like me. I have assimilated, I have two degrees, I have worked at two prominent Higher Education institutions, yet all this will never be enough in this current system. A system that lies to its people about its history. A history that it is so shameful "we just won't talk about it" therefore it isn't real. I threw away my parent's rich culture to assimilate to a faux "Americanism" that cannot even acknowledge it's wrongdoings and provide reparations to those they have treated like garbage. I feel so ashamed, hurt, broken. There is so much work to do to fix this "system," and I know that no matter what I do... it will never be good enough.
