Hate incidents directed at Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are exploding this year, according to advocates pushing for California Gov.
In Rosemead, an Asian American reported that “three Hispanic and two white individuals entered the store and cut in front of me.
In Santa Clara, an Asian American reported that a man kicked his dog and ordered him to shut the canine up.
Go home.”AdvertisementThe scapegoating of China and people of Chinese descent happens again and again, said Cynthia Choi, co-executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action, a group that co-founded Stop AAPI Hate.
“Racist demagoguery matched with anti-immigrant policies have always been used to deny Asian Americans full social and political rights,” she added.
