Asian Hate in America: A Conversation With Eileen Cheng-yin Chow, Jiayang Fan & Michelle Ye Hee Lee. FCC HK Conversations. The Foreign Correspondents' Club, Hong Kong. March 24, 2021

Broadcast Appearance

Last week’s shootings in Atlanta, in which six women of Asian descent were killed, have put an international spotlight on the growing wave of anti-Asian violence in the United States. With a recent report finding that hate crimes targeting Asian Americans in major U.S. cities increased 150% in 2020, it’s clearer than ever that this community is under threat. And Asian American women are particularly vulnerable. According to new research from Stop AAPI Hate, 68% of the nearly 3,800 anti-Asian racist incidents that took place last year targeted women. How did it come to this, and how will the situation change moving forward? In this FCC Zoom event, our panelists discuss Asian American identity, media coverage of hate crimes and the public’s response to the killings in Atlanta. Moderated by FCC First Vice President Eric Wishart.
