The following is something I wanted to reblog from Kat Myrman. For some reason I can not just use a reblog button on her (or anyone else’s) blog. This is a cut and paste work around.
Some issues are impossible for me to ignore. As an immigrant blogger (German) with a family that comes from Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Indonesia; I feel lucky that almost all of my family avoided these problems. Only one of my daughters was born in the US. It was a different time in America. (For this post only, I define America as the US; I understand the differences by definition between the two.) I (German) was the only one to get caught up in policy contradictions but it was long ago and the way to resolution was clear.
