Tracking hate against Asians

Welcome to the new American reality. We apparently hate Asians now. Fuck.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice tracks hate.

I was walking down Valencia in San Francisco around 7pm and this older White gentleman pretended to hit my head with the book in his hand. As he walked by- he yelled really loudly- "I hate your fucking race. We're in charge of this country now." He was not intoxicated.

According to an article produced by NPR, a report from the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relation found that crimes targeting Asian-Americans in that county tripled between 2014 and 2015.

I don’t like where we are heading. I don’t like it at all.
