A tribute to Vincent Chin begins at 11 a.m. PT today. Watch here: fb.me/e/1xXAk2MAY
Only 15 percent of police departments acknowledge that there are hate crimes. Data collection is poor, says Mike German of the @BrennanCenter
The news media, politicians were talking about "the threat China posed." It was not fringe groups, it was members of Congress, says Mike German, explaining the roots of anti-Asian hate. #StopAsianHate #HateCrime
Police departments are not mandated to report hate crimes. It is on a volunteer basis, says Mike German of the @BrennanCenter The Justice Department only prosecutes 25 hate crimes per year
These past two years have been intensely difficult for #asianamericans says Helen Zia. @HelenZiaReal
The 1980s were a time of incredible crisis, says Helen Zia, who like #VincentChin worked in the auto industry in Detroit. Asians in America were being blamed for unemployment. @HelenZiaReal
Vincent Chin was killed on the night of his bachelor party by two white killers, who stalked hom through the streets of Detroit, says @HelenZiaReal
The killers beat #VincentChin mercilessly, but got only probation. #AsianAmericans came together to stand up against hate. #StopAAPIHate
Communities are being pitted against one another. It is not true that Black people are committing crimes against Asians, says @HelenZiaReal #AsiansforBlackLives
The murder of Vincent Chin spawned a movement, says John C. Yang @johncyangdc of @AAAJ_AAJC
Yang discusses replacement theory. "The people who most fear being displaced are white males with guns," says @johncyangdc of @AAAJ_AAJC
75% of the attackers of #AsianAmericans are white men, not Black men shown on viral videos. @johncyangdc @AAAJ_AAJC #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate
Lisa Cylar Barrett says negative stereotypes such as "model minority Asians" and "lazy Black people" pit communities against one another. @lcylarbarrett @NAACP_LDF
We need to fight together, says @lcylarbarrett We have allowed the narrative to go unchecked for so long.
Misinformation and disinformation has become normalized. We need the narrative to change so that people can see themselves in one another. @lcylarbarrett #StopAsianHate @NAACP_LDF
We have this idea that if one community prospers, another fails. It doesn't have to be an "either/or" scenario, says @lcylarbarrett @NAACP_LDF "There is a constant effort to divide us."
