The feeling of being the “other” is something Asian Americans have faced for a long time.
No matter what Asian Americans do, we still are not recognized as American because we look Asian.
This ostracization of Asian Americans isn’t just hurtful, it’s been the fuel on the “the Asians caused corona” fire.
For any Asian Americans who may be upset or have experienced hate, don’t be driven by the same hate as the people who are attacking us.
Covid-19 isn’t the only thing we need to stop spreading- we need to stop the spread of abuse against Asian Americans.
