Asian Americans Are Targeted For Hate Crimes More Than We Think

From robberies targeting Asian-owned businesses in Philadelphia and Sacramento to sexual assaults and rapes targeting Asian women in New York City and Seattle, crimes that target our community are more common than we are led to believe.

Earlier this year at the OC Night Market, a Vietnamese American man was told to “go back to Asia” where he could “go eat dog” after refusing to allow two White women and a White man to cut ahead of him in line. The trio later gave him a severe beating that required stitches and temporary fillings, but the police did not consider the attack racially-motivated.
