Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong

In my effort to learn more about how others feel as minorities, I picked up this book entitled Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong, a Korean American who weaves her own history with the history of racial inequity, art, the ideas of friendship, and the difficulties of living with and through it all as a female. 

While I understand many of the issues that she hits on, I could not relate. But I could see how countless others would be able to, especially any who overlap any of her minority categories. I, however, had a very different upbringing and experience than she had. Some people would call my life "privileged" or "easy." And maybe it was. 

Despite our differences, I still appreciate that the author had the courage to share her stories and life with the public. That's not easy.
