The professor who heads up San Francisco State University’s Asian American studies department has launched a new video designed to fight racism against Asian Americans resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jeung said a large number of racist incidents against Asian Americans go unreported.
In just two months, he said there have been 1,900 incidents, most are of Asian Americans being harassed or shunned.
She said she also saw a white man verbally harass an older Asian man on Muni.
The professor fears the racism directed at Asian Americans may worsen even after the pandemic is over.
