Damn Asians (Chinese? Japanese? Korean? Indian? Turks? Uzbeks?)!

The recent reports of increased violence against Asian-Americans are troubling, but nothing new. The history of Asians in the U.S. is marked by negative actions against this group by U.S. citizens and the U.S. Government. The current focus on Asian-Americans or Chinese-Americans may be attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic and how politicians have pointed a finger at China for our misery. This, in turn, has seemingly given citizens an excuse for their violence against U.S. citizens of Asian descent.
