This was a heartbreaking week with the horrifically violent and deadly attacks against Asians in America. We want to take a moment to pay tribute to the victims of the Atlanta shootings, and to Pak Ho and Vicha Ratanapakdee who died of attacks while on their walks. However, to be respectful of the Atlanta victims and their families, we will follow the protocol suggested by the Atlanta chapter of the Asian American Advancing to hold off sharing the names of the victims until their families have provided full consent to do so.
With the rise of anti-Asian racism, we’ve put together a podcast playlist we hope will help bring awareness to anti-Asian racism. In the playlist, you’ll find episodes on the many histories of anti-Asian racism, the sexual festishization of Asian women, the model minority myth, and what it means to be Asian American.
