Recently, The Asian American Business Development Center (AABDC) released a joint statement with One Hundred Black Men and the Hispanic Federation calling on people from all sectors to support their Asian American colleagues, partners, and community during this time.
“Many other Asian American organizations in social services, culture, education also have developed strong alliances with African American and Hispanic organizations.
While many within the black community condemn the attacks against Asian Americans, there are those that believe that it isn’t our place to defend a group of people who also discriminates against African Americans.
Over the past few years, viral videos have appeared of African Americans receiving unfair treatment inside of beauty supply stores.
Comedian Godfrey recently released a video that discusses people’s reluctance to stand up for the Asian community.
