For proof, look no further than the sudden spike in discrimination and hate crimes directed against Asian-Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sadly, the irrational abuse leveled against Asian-Americans during this crisis is not unique.
From Pearl Harbor to 9/11, crises in America often spark both solidarity and bigotry.
Social media companies should immediately delete posts attacking Asian-Americans, especially those that spread false information.
Going forward, all Americans must do what they can to ensure that our Asian-American neighbors experience only solidarity, not bigotry.
