Wash The Hate
Since the start of the pandemic, #StopAAPIHate has recorded
2,600+ Anti-Asian incidents. The hashtag was created in March,
after a California student was sent to the ER after a bullying incident.
Despite the W.H.O.'s warning against stigmatizing disease's
country of origin, and the F.B.I.'s warning for increased hate against Asian Americans, the Trump administration persisted in calling the COVID-19, the "China Virus" and "Wuhan Virus" as political rhetoric.
Due to the belief that Chinese/Asian Americans are responsible for
COVID-19, Asian Americans are targeted indiscriminately, regardless of ethnicity.
In Midland, Texas, a family with two young children were attacked while shopping by another customer wielding a knife.
Three family members sustained deep gashes to the head.
The House of Representatives, led by Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), passed a resolution condemning the Anti-Asian attacks.
