Ruby's Vlog on Anti-Asian Racism

Senuki's #StopAAPIHate Blog

Although I have never personally faced the injustice of AAPI hate to myself, a plethora of my peers and very good friends are a part of the community. It disgusts me to know that people are being attacked and discriminated against because of their race and ethnicity. When I moved to Syosset in the 6th grade, I always believed that I was in an accepting and diverse community, especially coming from a predominantly white elementary school. My expectations were ruined when finding out about an AAPI hate influenced attack that happened at one of the local middle schools.

Akshita's Blog on Asian Hate

Prior to watching these videos, I have only seen a few other videos on social media that have showcased this type of racial profiling and violence. Social media does not allow these issues and information to be vocalized like other issues. I think that that is the biggest issue! These videos showcased so many cases where people in the AAPI community were called unacceptable slurs where people made stereotypic comments towards them. These might seem small but are very hurtful and should not be tolerated. Verbal abuse is just as scarring and painful as physical abuse!

Linsey's Blog on Asian American Discrimination and Racism

Unfortunately as an Asian American, discrimination and racism are not unusual contrivances in life. My experiences have been both indirect and direct, however both still convey and promote these derogatory stereotypes about AAPI people. For instance, in my district, one of the middle schools had an incident where an Asian 6th grader was verbally abused by a few of his fellow Caucasian classmates.

Ruby's Blog on Anti-Asian Racism

Ever since I could remember, as a child I have gotten numerous comments mainly directed against my ethnicity. The kids in my class would say such things as “dog eater” “go back to where you came from” or even pull their eyes back. I never thought any of this since I was in Elementary but now that I am older, I have realized that this was racism. I could continue to talk about the numerous experiences I have faced or even other AAPI people I know, however I want to bring up something that I have recently discovered especially on a social media platform called TikTok.

Dheethya's Blog: Taking Action to Stop Asian Hate

I personally have never experienced any discrimination for being of Asian descent, but I've heard about many Asian hate crimes on the news. However, none of them had hit as close to home as one incident did. A couple of months ago, an Asian student walking home from school (my school) was allegedly attacked by 4 people, all of whom used anti-Asian racial slurs and spat on the student. I was outraged. Taunting and teasing someone about their ethnicity is one thing, but spitting on them? Especially a child?
