【Anti-Asian racism】The human rights committee in Congress held hearings on anti-Asian violence today with witnesses of law makers, scholars, Asian-human rights activists, and victims. Anti-Asian violence and racism has over 200 year history in America. Since the pandemic appeared a year ago, there have been over 8000 anti-Asian violence incidents, 34% in California and 17% in New York City – the second highest in the country. A spike of anti-Asian violence occurred in the past several weeks, including six Asians killed yesterday in Georgia. I hope you all keep alert and safe. Take good care of ourselves.
