Duckworth: I Hope that Americans Realize that Asian Americans Are Suffering Racist Attacks

‘We know hate crimes against Asian-Americans are underreported & often are not listed as hate crimes’


DUCKWORTH: "I hope that Americans realize that Asian Americans are suffering racist attacks and that we bring to those who are in authority a visibility on these hate crimes against Asian Americans. We know that hate crimes against Asian Americans are significantly under-reported and often are not listed as hate crimes but are just, 'Oh, it’s a typical harassment or robbery or something like that,' when it is clearly a crime that was targeted based on somebody’s race."
