Antonio is one of 200,000 Asian-American dreamers living in the U.S., who were brought to the country as a young child by their parents illegally.

Watching the news, it seems like ethnic divides are ever-deepening. But how can we solve these complicated problems when each side lives in fear of the other?

This mystical bond between a black mother and everyone else’s children she does not know. by. Joseph Solomon Last year, I posted a poem that was about mothers in GENERAL.
