@wesyang  I fail to see how making it much harder for Asian Americans to get into medical school furthers the goal of eliminating white supremacy.

Trump’s unchecked racist and xenophobic rhetoric against Asian Americans and Asian immigrants directly puts their lives at risk. It’s dangerous. There is no excuse for this.

@PressSec  says President Trump using the term kung-flu is a "indictment" on China and not about blaming Asian Americans for the virus. Note: Many Americans, including Asian Americans who have faced increased attacks during the pandemic, find the term racist and offensive.

In March, @KellyannePolls  said that "kung flu" was "highly offensive" and mentioned her husband and kids, who have Asian heritage, because obviously it's especially offensive to Asian-Americans. President Trump just used the term for a third time. To raucous applause.

Asian Americans are VERY angry at what China has done to our Country, and the World. Chinese Americans are the most angry of all. I don’t blame them!

An Asian American father and his 2-year-old and 6-year-old were stabbed because the perpetrator thought they were Chinese and had coronavirus. Donald Trump has put the lives of Asian Americans and Asian immigrants at risk.

“The other day, I got stopped in the subway and one of the passengers started screaming racial slurs at me. I was dressed in scrubs....” Scrubs or no scrubs, this is not okay. We must speak out against attacks on Asian Americans and Asian immigrants.

Trump: "We have to protect our Asian Americans." Q: What concrete measure are you taking to combat hate crimes against Asian Americans? Trump: "Well I don't know. All I know is Asian Americans in our country are doing fantastically well. I am very close to them as you know."

Unemployment is LOW for ALL Americans because of President Trump: 🔥6% African American unemployment—before POTUS, African American unemployment was NEVER below 7% 🔥4.3% Hispanic American unemployment—near-record low 🔥3% Asian American unemployment—near-record low #DemDebate 

No, Mr. McCarthy, nationality has no bearing on your likelihood of contracting or spreading the coronavirus. Misinformation like that leads to discrimination against Asian-Americans. That kind of destructive xenophobia has no place in our society, or our public health response.

What did Elizabeth Warren tweet mean:”Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy “not veterans, latinos,asian americans,native americans,white Americans-Warren has a pretty exclusionary and narrow backbone of democracy-
