Ask How I’m Doing as an Asian American Woman, Not Where I’m From

Denounce violence loudly and stand with us

Stop AAPI Hate
We need non-Asians to loudly denounce the hate and violence. Stop AAPI Hate

After an elderly Asian man was murdered in San Francisco, it took days before his story made it to the news and was later called a hate crime. While the violence continued, it would take another few weeks for his story to go mainstream. It’s now mid-March, and as numerous Asian women are killed in a shooting rampage, the headlines have yet to bring attention to Asians nor the racist motivations of these unfortunate events. Omission of this detail is another reflection of how the media is catering toward their predominantly white audience. Even when we’re being blatantly targeted, we’re invisible to the world.
