On December 30, 2019, Cesar Miguel (@cesarmvm) tweeted “Diaspora is almost becoming as useless a term as immigrant.” The thread continued by distinguishing between the experiences of refugees and those who gained easier access to documentation and residence because it “benefited American/European geopolitical interests; those who make six figures in highly trained fields and those who earn way below the poverty line.” Min Hyoung Song echoed Cesar Miguel’s thoughts but with relation to terms further associated with migration, noting that we need to reconceptualize the language of migration, and Viet Thanh Nguyen chimed in to note that – as per Paul Gilroy – most terms inevitably require clarification and adjectival distinction.
