Linsey's Vlog on Asian American Discrimination and Racism

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.

Akshita's Blog on Racist Asian Stereotypes

When I was younger I guess I didn’t notice or realize any racial comments made towards me. But recently, in the past couple of years, I have noticed more and more everyday. Where it was towards me or toward someone else around me.

Anna's Blog on Anti-Asian Sentiments

My dad was born to two Chinese immigrants, but he was born in Minnesota and grew up in Missouri, so he is 100% percent American. My mom, on the other hand, grew up in Belgium, and immigrated to the United States when she was in her 20s, so she has a noticeable Flemish accent. From their first interactions, any person would know that my mother is not of this country. Yet, in their professional lives, my dad, on multiple occasions, has been told to “go back to his country”, while my mom has only ever been kindly asked as to where she is from.
