As the US continues its long-overdue reckoning with systemic racism, its history of ethnocentrism has taken center stage. Xenophobia fueled by the highest office in the land and shrouded by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to exposed hatred and increased violence towards Asian, Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities. Earlier this week, our country was once again reminded of the danger of misguided fear as 8 women, 6 of whom were of Asian descent, were murdered in a killing spree by a bias-motivated perpetrator. These horrific slayings were a hate crime!
