Videos of Asian Americans, mostly seniors, being shoved violently to the ground and robbed in unprovoked attacks in California and New York over the past few months have sparked fear and outrage among the Asian community in the United States. Attack happened in Flushing, Queens. Across the country there has been a disturbing rise in violence against the Asian American community.
Keep your eyes open, keep your families safe. A surveillance video from Queens, New York City on February 16, shows a year-old Asian woman being attacked by a man who threw a box at her and pushed her to the ground, knocking her unconscious. We started collecting personal, first-hand accounts of anti-Asian racism in March In these reports , we see four main categories of discrimination: mistreatment at the workplace, cyberbullying, verbal harassment and physical assault.
My family has also experienced this: my wife was out running when someone deliberately blocked her path and coughed in her face. There's not a single confirmed case of an Asian infected in NYC.
Stop discriminating cause the virus definitely doesn't. A Twitter video filmed on a New York City subway train on March 4, — around the time the pandemic reached New York City — shows a man screaming at an Asian passenger to move away from him.
The man then sprays the passenger with air freshener. Our data also shows that vulnerable populations — youth and elderly — are disproportionately impacted, as well as women. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dion Lim dionlimtv.
A surveillance video from San Francisco on January 28, shows a man violently shoving Vichar Ratanapakdee, an year-old Thai man, to the ground during his morning walk. He died from the attack. Nearly a third of Asian Americans said they have been subject to racist slurs or jokes since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, while 26 percent said that they feared threats and physical attacks, according to a Pew research study conducted in June President Trump incited the hate more by using terms like 'Chinese virus' and 'kung flu' over and over, stigmatising Chinese people.
There was a 'yellow peril' fear that Asians would come and invade, bringing their diseases and taking away jobs, evidenced in the Chinese Exclusion Act in We know that historically, in times of war, economic downturn, and epidemic, Asians are framed as outsiders to be excluded or detained.
After the employees confront the thieves, a car parked in front of the store zooms away, almost running over the employees. People can go into fight or flight mode: patrolling, arming themselves, telling their families to stay indoors. But the other response is to flock. And I see the community flocking together, people standing up to resist racism and take care of our elders. A TikTok video shows a February 20, protest in New York City denouncing recent violence and crimes against Asian Americans, and supporting the community.
