Editor’s Note: The opinions expressed in this piece are solely those of the author.

Asian Americans are no strangers to hate — since the arrival of the first Asian in America, anti-Asian sentiment has been very prevalent. From the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to Japanese internment camps in WWII to the Asian American struggles for civil rights throughout the 1960s and 1970s, there is no denying the fact that, we, as Asian Americans, have not been accepted. Throughout history, we have been demonized, excluded, and interned.
