Asian Americans are perceived as “perpetual foreigners” regardless of how long they or their families have lived in the United States, according to results of a survey released by AAPI Data and SurveyMonkey on Tuesday, March 30.

The report’s release comes as Asian Americans increasingly find themselves the target of hate crimes and hate incidents amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Asian American community, from activists to faith leaders and average citizens, have protested against hate nationwide since the shootings in Atlanta.

“It’s the idea that not only are you from somewhere else, but that you don’t belong here,” he said, adding that the survey shows Asian Americans experience this “othering” even more so than Latinos.

For example, while Asian Americans are viewed as “perpetual foreigners,” anti-Black prejudice is built on tropes about violence while ignoring centuries of oppression from slavery and Jim Crow to modern-day incarceration.
