The latest deaths of black people at the hands of police led Jaime Sunwoo to undertake something she had always struggled with – a conversation with her parents about race.Sunwoo, who said her family did not discuss racial issues when she was growing up, said she had never articulated the ideas "so coherently and all at once" as the letter did.That letter and similar versions in other languages have been circulating in an effort to enlist Asians, Hispanics and other minorities in the movement and to cast light on connections between different minority groups.From the beginning, Black Lives Matter supporters have included protesters and activists of all races. In this latest campaign, minority supporters are turning to the people closest to them, trying to convince them that the movement is their fight too.Karla Monterroso, an advocate for increasing black and Latino representation in the technology field, helped write a letter in Spanish and English aimed at Hispanic communities.Several thousand mostly Chinese-Americans rallied around the country to support Liang, saying he was being scapegoated for white officers who killed black men.
