What is the injustice we are solving?

The injustice that I want to change within my community is the oppression and colorism within minority communities that has affected those within the community and a community view of other communities. For example, the Asian and South Asian's anti-black sentiments has greatly affected the movements against bigotry and hate. It's harder for the Muslim community to fight against Islamophobia without addressing racism and anti-black sentiments within the community and in society since a majority of Muslim Americans are black. Sentiments like these that have pitted communities of color against each other. It has divided our movements to fight against all hate.
