Anti-Asian hate crimes are rising across the United States since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. To discuss the issue further, Rohit Gandhi of Democracy News Live discusses the issue with Eileen Cabiling (Filmmaker, United States of America), Alan Ma (Associate Consultant) and, Jenny Kubo (United States of America).
Direk Eileen discussed the various challenges hurdled by Asian Americans across history, since the 1860s. She noted that Filipinos for example, have always been considered second-class citizens and suffered from racism, along with their Asian counterparts. She likewise pointed out that these were exacerbated recently by the past administration.
The interview was streamed last March 24, 2021.
