Hate and Violence of any kind is horrible. And with the number of hate crimes continuing to rise in the Asian community, I wanted to use my platform to show solidarity, share some data, and speak against Asian hate.
So with that said, below are some key data points I collected from three sites. And I’m also sharing some images from a Stop Asian Hate community event I attended earlier today in Chinatown, San Francisco.
- There has been over 3,800 Anti-Asian hate incidents between March 2020 – February 2021
- NYC and LA has the largest reported Anti-Asian hate incidents, followed by Boston and Washington, DC
- 700 Anti-Asian hate incidents has been reported in the Bay Area since the pandemic
- Chinese are the largest targeted group, followed by Koreans, Vietnamese, & Filipinos
- Businesses are the primary site of discrimination/ hate, followed by public streets and parks
