The Virus of Hate and Asian Americans

Asian Americans are facing a national crisis in our country today.

COVID-19 related verbal and even physical attacks targeting Asian Americans are escalating with no end in sight. Many have been severely injured and even murdered as a result of these brutal attacks, simply because of their ethnicity. Many victims are seniors, as they are defenseless targets. Why is this happening in a country that prides itself on being tolerant and equitable for all races?

In addition to the mental stress of the pandemic, Asian Americans also worry about themselves or their loved ones being attacked or killed simply by leaving their homes to go for a walk or to a grocery store. And just like the pandemic, this virus of hate has spread all across America. To address this issue, we must advocate for a change in long-standing perceptions deeply rooted behind many of these attacks. We must stand against this hatred and rise with a strong, unified voice in condemning these crimes, ensuring that those responsible are held accountable under the law.

Our Documentary Project

Our goal is to ask questions and seek answers that will ultimately help foster a better understanding and awareness of the systemic and racial problems that affect our community. Through humanizing the stories we see on the news and on statistical reports, we can build compassion and empathy toward healing and eradicate the fears and ignorance that have allowed this dangerous virus of hate to spread across our nation.

Not only do we owe it to our elders and most vulnerable people in our community to share these stories, but we also have a moral obligation to our future generations of Asian Americans in building a better tomorrow for them free of this hate.
