"asian american community" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Midterm elections 12 days from now. We're going through state by state, at least the states that could be key to determining who controls the Senate and the House. We turn now to Nevada and Emily Wilkins, who is out there covering that state last week, has now reporting on what she learned during her time there. Emily, thank you so much for being with us. What did you learn in Nevada? There is so much to learn in Nevada, David. For so many reasons. Number one, you have an incredibly competitive Senate race there. Democrat Catherine Cortez masto is up against Republican Adam laxalt, polls are incredibly close. And David, this is just one of those seats that if Democrats lose it, their chance of chances of holding the Senate are not good at all. And the trick out there, too, is that there's not just the Senate race. There are also three different house races. And I know that doesn't sound like a lot. But remember, the margins in Congress are such that Republicans only need to gain 5 seats to gain control of the House. So really it's a key market out there in Las Vegas and in the rest of the state. And if you look at the electorate, it's going to tell us so much about what's happening with America, what's happening with the parties and what could happen in future elections. Nevada has a lot of service industry workers. Of course, the entertainment industry, the tourism, industry, and a lot of those blue collar workers used to be very solidly Democrat, stronghold voters, but now they're looking more at Republicans because of inflation because of the economy and because of crime. And Democrats out there, they're really plain to a number of messages. They are talking about the economy, but they're also still talking about abortion about January 6th and making the bet that those messages are going to appeal to some independent and Republican voters who might not have otherwise supported them or that they're really going to mobilize their own base and make sure that democratic voters are getting off their couches into their cars and to the polls by election day. And what is the level of enthusiasm interest commitment to vote? Do you have a sense of that? That is a really, really good question, David. We have already seen a number of people cast early voting ballots early voting started on Saturday and already, it's getting close to what levels we use saw for the presidential in 2020. That's really notable. Of course, you know, turn out tends to be much higher for presidentials than it does for a midterm election. At the same point, I talked to a number of undecided voters who really just feel jaded with both parties. They feel like their pocketbooks have shrunk, like their dollar doesn't go as far, prices are high. They don't really trust Democrats anymore, but they don't quite trust Republicans either, and it'll be really interesting to see what happens with Nevada's unaffiliated voters. They make up about a third of the state. So this is a really good testing ground to see what sort of happening with those who aren't with one party or the other. And I want to come back to something you referred to actually Emily, which is the minority voters, whether there are Latino voters or black voters or Asian voters for that matter, that historically it's been thought tend to go Democrat I heard you say is it's not as sure a thing this time. Might that say something more broadly about the Democratic Party in this years election? Well, for a lot of these voters, one of their top issues is the economy and they're just feeling so pinched right now. A grocery store is a gas pumps. I talked to several voters who said, you know, that is causing them to start thinking about supporting Republicans. And Republicans have been actively courting these voters the Republican National Committee actually has different set community centers out in Nevada that Taylor specifically to the Hispanic and Latino community, as well as to the Asian American community. And so Republicans really are trying to make these pitch to these voters saying, hey, we do share a lot of values with you and you should consider giving us a vote if you're not happy with how the economy is currently going. What about questions about the 2020 election or election integrity this time? Is that a factor that you picked up on out there? It's absolutely a factor. And it doesn't seem to be more of a factor than the economy and inflation. That's clearly number one across the board. But for a number of Democrats, Cortes masto, as well as some of the Democrats who are running for House seats, they've been talking about the roles their opponents have played when it comes to the 2020 election. The Republican nominee for senator Adam laxalt. He was one of the chairs of Trump's campaign out in Nevada, and he really was sort of a part of that stopped the steel group that was pushing back against Biden's victory on election night. So Democrats are hoping that by talking about that, they are going to make some inroads with voters. But again, I mean, I talked to group after group who's been hitting the doors and a lot of the candidates to a person, almost everyone said that their top issue was the economy. And so it's just not clear how much January 6th the stop the steel movement is going to wind up playing into this overall. That's a really terrific report. Thank you so much for bringing it to us. That's Emma Wilkins who reports on Congress for Bloomberg. Check out the balance of power newsletter on the terminal and also online coming up bounce apart is going to continue for a second hour on Bloomberg radio and in that hour we're going to talk to people about the winter elections and also about the

There Is a $1 Trillion Bill Laying on the Sidewalk for Republicans

"Is a $1 trillion bill laying on the sidewalk right now for Republicans. I got a phone call the other day from a Republican running for the U.S. Senate. Let's just say in a very competitive race. And he was asking for my advice. I get phone calls like this all the time. I told you about a call like this last week. This is a different call. And he said, Charlie, you know, we're not doing too great. We're trying to do better. We got some momentum. What do you think I should be talking about? What do you think I'm missing? And I said, what's your message on crime? And he said, oh, you know, we're talking about inflation and we're talking. I said, no, hold on. I said, what's your message on crime? What are you talking about when it comes to the fundamental bedrock issue where the entire civilization is determined? It is the civilizational defining issue. Law & Order are the issues, is the issue, of which all other issues stem from. You can't get this right, inflation, private property rights, stock market, forget it. If you're afraid you are going to be murdered on the way to school, kidnapped, jogging in the morning before as a teacher are going to go teach your students. You're not living in a free country anymore. And we've been warning against the bubbling up of this crime wave in America for quite some time. It just seems right now as summer is ending and we're entering fall. It's hitting a crescendo. It's hitting a climax you could say. Republicans out there saying, how do we jump start our campaigns? Well, you got to start to recognize and realize that the media is going to call you racist no matter what you do. And that there is anxiety in all communities, black community, Latino community, the Asian community, every community about what's happening with crime in America. We're going

Why Does Joe Biden Care if He's in the Majority or Minority?

"So here's Joe Biden. Once extolling the virtues of the United States, welcoming in minorities. Not only are Muslim communities, but African communities, Asian communities, Hispanic communities, and the waves still continues. It's not going to stop. Nor should we want it to stop. And as a matter of fact, it's one of the things I think we can be most proud of. So there's a second thing in that black box. An unrelenting stream of immigration, nonstop, nonstop, folks like me who were Caucasian of European descent. For the first time in 2017, we'll be in an absolute minority in the United States of America. Absolute minority, fewer than 50% of the people in America, from then and on. Will be white European stock. That's not a bad thing. That's a source of our strength. That's not a bad thing that's a source of our strength. Now, I don't know what difference is. What does he care if he's in the majority race or the minority race? He cares because he believes that if minorities become the majority, that will benefit the Democrat party with more votes. I don't think Joe Biden sits around and says, oh, isn't it great that whites are in the minority? That's a great thing. That's a source of all these bromides and all these platitudes he's spewing out in that clip. He's doing that because he wants more Democrat votes.

"And I was surprised, you know, we are the only national group that called it up. I was very happy to see that there are now a number of other organizations. There's a sign on letter that happened a couple of weeks ago. There are now, I think, 200 200 Asian American leaders and organizations that have signed the letter. But we have to be bold and loud about protecting our community. And the last thing I'll say too is, and I told, I told to campaign manager. I was like, look, you do realize that the victory fund our job is to turn out Asian American voters. There's almost 300,000 Asian American voters in Ohio. If what we're having a conversation here is whether this ad is supremely offensive to the Asian American community, you're not doing a very good job. Because how do then you to expect for that community to want to come out and vote for you? Like the sort of barometer, right? The lowest common denominator here should be not offending the Asian American community. No, we need to do a lot more than that. We need to inspire the Asian American community. You need to make the case to the Asian American community on why they should vote for you. And I'm sorry, blaming China is not a solution. It's just not, you know? And so I was pretty, I was pretty forthright, you know, adamant and it was very interesting how dismissive they were of the community and also, you know, I think that they've now heard it loud and clear. I think that shaker and Tim's conversation was constructive. And we also offered feedback. We're like, look, you should have some we should have some Asian Americans working on your content. You should actually, if you're going to do a spot like that, there's a D Asian American faces in the spot. If what you're saying is it's not about that, then why is there not a single Asian American in the ad? Why is it only white people that you're talking to, right? And last but not least, it's like be specific. What solutions? Just saying China China China to your point, it sounds like Vincent chin. This is the kind of weaponized rage that led to one of the most traumatic and tragic murders in our community's history. Know that history, right? And I'm hoping that this is a teachable moment. I'm hoping that we can move that will not see more ads like this. But again, for your students that are listening and for folks to understand the history of this kind of xenophobia, it's real. And so again, you expect it from Republicans, but I'm almost glad that it came from a Democrat because I do think that we can't be we have to be unafraid about calling it out regardless if.

"And I don't know how I am like an awe of the fact that they were to able to collect themselves and get back on and continue having this really important conversation because I immediately I was like, I was texting David Ye because he was on the call and we were like, what the hell just happened? And I texted you and I was like, oh my God, you will not believe what just happened. It was just so, so awful, especially just the fact that this was supposed to be an event that we felt safe in. It was really just for like the Asian American community. And then to have these people come in, it was like truly like you would not expect anti Asian hate to happen during a conversation about anti aging. You know what I mean? It's like, I just don't even know how this happened. And then what was really awful was sung yoon who is the executive director of an APA WF was like actually I'm not surprised this has happened to me before. Zoom bombing targets communities, especially targeting talking about racism and misogyny and obviously we were like majority Asian women. So just so awful. And it was really sad too because the whole the event was happening and then Priscilla and Amy created these graphics on their instagrams prior to the event about not going silent and sharing statistics about how like 78% of AAPI women have been affected by anti Asian racism and actions that you could take. Donating to the NAPA WF supporting AAPI businesses all the stuff. And then this happens. So I'm very grateful so many friends reached out, obviously people were checking in on me, making sure I was okay. I was checking in on everyone like we were checking in on each other. But it was kind of upsetting to see these are two really big API beauty brands in the industry. And they've always been really supportive of other communities. And we were really feeling like there was a lack of non AAPI brands and friends who usually are pretty vocal. They didn't say anything..

Lieutenant Governor Elect Winsome Sears Becomes a Superstar Overnight

"And how about this extraordinary lieutenant governor elect of Virginia, winsome Sears, she has become a superstar overnight. I watch her on Sean Hannity last night. She was so good. She has talk about guts. She has the guts to say things that people have been afraid to say. You know, I dared point out as a part time resident of New York. That Asians were being attacked by young black men. And people were like, oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness. How do you say that? You can't say that. It's like, well, no, but it's true. The Asian community knew it. And evidently win some Sears knew it, listen to what she said last night to Sean on Fox News. What I want to say to black people, Asian people, whatever, minorities, Latinos, whatever, don't allow political parties to divide us. Don't allow political parties to use whatever grievances that have been historically against you to force you to look at them as the savior so that they can swoop in and think they're saving you when all they're doing is pitting one race against the other. One race against the other. You'll notice, for example, that what was happening with Asians, it was young black men, and they were attacking Asians, but nobody wanted to say anything about it. If you can't identify the problem, then how can you come up with a solution? How strong is that? How strong

"You know we just. We really need to make sure that we're working together. Hand in hand. I think about you know so many of the the marches last summer in the after the the after the murder. George floyd what lifted my spirits in otherwise just very difficult. Time was just seeing Just the diversity of people stepping up and saying things. And that's what the asian american community needs right now. Too is seeing a lot of people stepping up and saying this. This is unacceptable that we don't only care about the hate at the discrimination that targets people that look like us you know so so that that's where i would try to say is that we need to really just make sure we don't go down some of those those directions and instead just tried to to make sure that we build the unity now that dovetails nicely with A question i was going to ask you about an bed. We had on the op-ed page By alistair burke whose nal novelist and professor at hostile Hofstra university professor of law at hofstra university and basically. She was making the same point that you know we. Meaning the asian american community needs like. Who's going to march with us. We need we need folks to march with us. And i want to read this this paragraph to you and get your reaction she wrote the quote unquote model minority stereotype of asian americans. That's us to argue that we are an exception to the gravitational force of american racism. Good students hard workers. Non-threatening people of color is constantly weaponized to simultaneously demonize black and latino communities and constrain asian-american activism under the prior administration the justice department blatantly pitted asian americans against other people of color by suing elite universities in an attempt to ban it mission policies that value diversity and inclusiveness men communities of color fight with one another the racists. Win your reaction. I think that that makes a lot of sense and utilize. I really do think that this kind of dividing conquer strategy from those wanted full band. Racism in our country They know that were stronger. In formidable if we unify our voices and we talk that way and and and and a look. It's also just you know to the point we talked about earlier. It's also just a very easy way for people that don't want to confront racism to just again change subject and say what about this or that and again it just. I've seen that kind of tactic used over and over again To just prevent us from actually tackling the toughest of questions the deepest of the wounds and the ways in which we can actually think about healing by just tried to again. Just change the subject there. So i thought that. Would you read the pastor. There is very powerful and and and really I think and a lot of important issues right now so Dear listener if Andy kim's name sounds familiar. And you can't quite place said it might be because you recognize his name. Because of a photo that went viral that was taken on january seventh and it was congressman kim in the capital with a garbage bag cleaning up debris from inside the capitol was that under the rotunda in the rotunda. The photos were in the cleaner all around the capital rotunda than the the the creek below the movie where the photos were were taken and it. It sort of captured the imagination. Because it was something that you you you'd do it for the pictures and you did it on your own. And i guess the photographer just happened to be happened to cap. Captured this image but it said so much about.

"So how do you build team culture as part of growth and start up at the same time. We're doing both of those equally at the same time. So how do we build a team culture. How do we make sure we're all sort of doing things together. And that information is being transferred on a constant basis that you know everybody's just not living in their silos so it's a learning. I've never done where built a team virtually so it has been a great learning experience. Had made sure we're constantly talking and that even during torture towards launch with a lot of consultants has everybody participate equally. So information doesn't fall through the cracks and that we're thinking through that on a regular basis and then the last piece is giving ourselves the room chair to learn along the way and not be seen as you know knowing all the answers and everybody wants you to know where you're going to grant. How are you gonna do this. What's the next thing and honestly we're still building. We're building the steps to back growth stage and and it's a learning experience even for me even though i've done this before did this at the white house.

"So three areas of works Ourselves as tap at three parts going to be a funder will be an incubator. So where we see gaps in the marketplace. We will actually be operating in those spaces and we will be convenient. We wanna make sure. We're bringing the communities together both within the asian community but also with other communities like we shouldn't we can't other ourselves we have also be inclusive and within the work that we do on funding. We have four areas of work that we want to focus on so area one anti hate so really focusing and tracking data responding to hate incidents Working towards prevention of hate incidents. Not just being in the in the response space The second area of work is Research and data a little bit of what we've already talked about. Which is how do we does. Aggregate data about our communities that were actually making the investments where they're needed it. Not just making lump sum statements but actually investing in the areas that were needed but understanding our own communities and then the third area of work is education. Asian american education is not even seeing part of the education system. So how do we work with teachers with publishers and others to say look at asian american history as a part of american history in harry. Major curriculum is available and making sure other datas available so that that matters in the last pieces increasing philanthropy asian american. So how do we constantly just keep the drumbeat going that there is asian. American communities should be seen as a part of american communities to be invested in and an increasing philanthropy both permission americans but also others to make sure that the that the community is being seen from philanthropy as well as government. Right we only have a little bit of time left. I'm curious what has surprised you. I in this journey I think you you said you were. We talked before that you were in. Your appointment was in the works obviously before it was announced publicly. Say you've been out on a little bit longer than at taff has been publicly visible But what have been the surprises along the way for you as you buy embarked on leading this station so i think three things with i. I think is just how much the community wanted. An organization like tap like when we announce ourselves a number of people that engage that wanted some organization that gave that felt that gave them the power to do whatever they needed to do in their own community so we hear from corporates. Er jeez that they feel empowered to ask Their own corporations do more for asian americans within the companies we hear from individuals that they feel like they are empowered to go do more in their own communities and to ask for more feel that so while it might not be from us itself. But the fact that taft existed has empowered a generation of people to feel like they can go and ask and feel empowered to do and to be which i think is so inspiring and so incredible. And i'm so glad that we were able to do that..

"It without recognizing it. We don't address and so and so Families need to report. Were trying to get more families to report hate incidents when they feel them. So we know what the incidence are not to necessarily go to authorities but at least understanding where that is so if i take that one in four incidents now it's a question of what is that. How are you being address. What is that hate incident. Look like so then we can get the understanding of what that data is where that information is and then also with children in schools. What does bullying look like. How does it affect. Asian american communities and then had rebuild curriculum to help address that but in the absence of not understanding it. We can't actually address the challenges. So the asian-african foundation as i said launched officially at back at nee And launched at the time with one hundred twenty five million dollars committed funding. And then you very very rapidly raised arrays at that total. Two billion dollars. Can you share. What occasions even that like that. I hear those numbers in here that fundraising it's like. Wow this was a you know a cause waiting for someone to lead it. You touched a nerve. There was a well of support. So what do you make of this huge amount of funding. that you've been able to attract. What are you gonna do it. That's great question. So i think what was interesting in this is that people were looking for an organization that could actually bring people together and bring organizations together so one thing we did do and made sure of is. It's public private and nonprofit dollars like we didn't want to. We don't wanna take away from the community itself. We also know that the private sector matters other foundations and bland therapy matters to so one requirement that we had when we first started was not to separate those dollars and make sure that our board. I committed one hundred twenty five million themselves than we matched that hundred twenty million with other money and the billion dollar number it's important to parse this out corporations that make commitments to give money themselves some of it through tax. Send some of it through themselves. But they they wanna know what they could match with us or what other things could be thinking about. They wanna understand that themselves. Foundations made commitments but not again through us but directly that they would do more so the billion dollars ten percent actually goes to tap but the ninety percent actually goes to communities themselves. We do not want to be seen as taking away from the community. We want to be able to see as an accelerator and enhancer for the community and to be a part of that. So what what. The money and the announcement was is more money. Asian american communities. There's another fact on this right. Which is the asian american communities from foundations. Only get point. Five percent of foundation resources board set for twenty three million people that point five percent at tiny so billion dollar announcement was like. How do we bring more money to our communities more money and a commitment from corporations foundations from community ambitions from bullying therapy to communities that have been under resourced over time and have them visible and seeing so people you pay attention as to you know how their employees are being treated. Who's being who's playing put up advertisements. What's our what's being sponsored. What's not being sponsored What more should we doing in communities. That's what we wanted to do with our billion dollars got it and so what will be the work and the focus. What is the early work and focus of.

"No one latino community is the same right. They're all your from central america even within central america. It's diverse that population so recognizing that there is a full diversity and not will bring everybody into that matters even though we might be twenty three million and then asian american community is the is recruiting fastest population growth among all racial and ethnic groups in the united states in the last twenty years. What's the implication of this. This isn't fast growing group of people so with three point five times faster growing than other communities just to keep that in mind as you think about birth rates and other things that happened over time. It's very fast growing or second generations going faster now than our first generation. So there's there's implications even within that politically socially culturally. There's lots of different implications that come with that. So what that means is recognizing politically that. We're also figuring out who we are as a community how we might engage differently within within the society that we're in culturally. Which professions are we going into in different places. It's not gonna just stay in. One set of professions were expanding out to multiple professions. Ucla of asian american public service.

"Struck by another statistic that is again is prominent on your website that Recent research suggests that one in four asian americans have experienced a hands and sixty four percent. So almost two-thirds have been asked where you really from now to how might show up for individuals who are pacific islanders. This sense of you don't quite belong. We don't quite see america and that's that in disability piece that we were talking about with a website. It's like i get that question all the time counselor and and it's not a political question right. It's it's from progressives as well as conservatives as well as everyone in between. I get that question the time where are you from and i'll say texas and then somebody like no. But where are you really from. And i'll say houston and then they'll sort of it then goes down to and i asked than bobbing question. Are you asking. What my heritage's because if that's the question then we're happy. I'm always happy to have that conversation. But when you're not seen as american because people want to know where you're from it's sort of begs this question of like am i always gonna be seen as not from here are not on the united states. I think that's a lot of people. Get ask those questions but also i think Question of one. In four asian americans have have felt an asian. Americans don't generally report hate incidents yet like when you do these sentiment analysis you start to get the feeling that people get where they feel. They're being discriminated. It's not talked about. It's not a group that people people generally stereotype as a successful. So therefore they're like you must not face eight and this question of what is hate feel like and what that means is is sort of. I think what that research was trying to get out like. What is the sentiment that people are feeling not necessarily the words but the words are sort of every time people use these words. Or where you from or what you do or wears you know What language do you speak. It's those questions are sort of always making you feel the other. So let's unpack. Some of the can facts that that understand. That are already your your work in the foundations exploring these facts understanding these facts and taking appropriate action some interested in you exchange information about it and then the tight about what are their implications which we understand about this so one of them will start with. Is that.

"It's been around for a while right. The chinese exclusion act in the eighteen. Hundreds was created to ensure chinese. Americans did not bring their families to the united states. The incarceration of japanese americans during world war two japanese americans. Though american those serving in the military were seen as not american at that moment in time and were put into camps. And so i think recognizing that the sense of asian americans especially and i can't speak every other medium really. Speaking for american community is really that were seen as perpetual foreigners where the perpetual outsiders. And i think every immigrant community at some point is probably based that but this has been going on for generations. It's not a. It's not the first time this is happened that we're seeing know post host the virus. But we're seeing this in the past. This has been a historical set of conversation. So i i think in one thousand nine hundred eighty two vincent. Cheng was murderer because he was a chinese american that was murdered because thought he was japanese and the japanese were taking over the auto industry and that was sort of the conversation. Then but it's the constant perpetual foreigner mess as opposed to not seeing asian americans. As american. And i want to Continuing with this mentioning the your mission envision also wanna in highlight the vision on your website so division is an america were opportunities to participate in all aspects of society are equally accessible and individuals and communities are not rendered invisible nor singled out for false stereotypes discrimination or hate on the basis of race. And here. i think. I want to focus on the first the first two parts. The third part is not singled out for false stereotypes discrimination or heat on the basis of race. I think that's something that in. When i think of racial discrimination in this country ethnic discrimination. That's broadly applicable. But there seems like there's something very interesting and worth exploring about the opportunity to participate in all aspects of society and i'm an individuals and communities are not rendered invisible so vision why those words why these elements i think Again it sort of goes back a little bit to the mission but bringing back to the vision on this is is being able to equally be seen as american no matter what the space is you might be and whether it's in the arts or whether it's in own or whether it's in business or in other places we tend to stereo type groups in that this is where your scientists our doctors are your your business people but we as humans are all of those things right. It may be. It might be that we participate in all of those pieces but recognizing that we should be apart and seen as part of all of society be able to actively gauge not just politically but socially and economically and culturally and that i think a big part of that vision that we want to put out that we see others we not only see ourselves in that space but others in that space and making sure we can do it and it sort of goes back to again to a belonging piece in that in that really of what we're looking at is how how do we show an america that is actively engaging all parts of society at asian american spiel part of it also impairing for the community itself we. It's not just what others do to us but what we do in how we actively engaged in that and and not fall into those false stereotypes one way or the other but see our cells as the power to do and participate in all aspects of society rate at one listening to..

But does today's visit suggest otherwise. Well, I think the problem's going to try to stay clear of that because it is still an ongoing investigation.

There's no evidence to support this suspicion. Let's take a listen now to matina. Stevis gridneff apologies for put your name matina a contributor to monaco speaking on globalist this morning she reports on the eu from brussels and for the new york times well the eu was a few weeks behind the us and the uk in striking agreements with pharmaceuticals. That wasn't catastrophic in any way. But what's really devil. The rollout has been major supply shocks vaccines due to problems with production by the pharmaceutical companies in particular in the first quarter of this year. That's really set. Things back and europeans have watched. Americans israelis british people just race past them In terms of getting vaccinated just as an indication six and a half percent of european union nationals have received at least one dose of the battle of a vaccine contrast that about a third of brits at eighteen percent of americans matina stevis gridneff speaking here on monocle twenty four a little earlier today andrew. We're gonna start with you the astrazeneca vaccine we've spoken about it. A lot and rightly or wrongly. It's a bit of a pr nightmare from inception to now. Probably not the fault of the people that created it but is there anything that can be done to revive its reputation as something that people are clamor for rather than Against well it's interesting because just as you say in the last few days we've had this story about a tiny group they seem to have had a blood clot in hours or day oft often receiving the vaccine but as pointed out by kind of everybody's looked at these numbers and that's not surprising when you think about all the things that are likely to happen to a large group of people. The next day is wouldn't be surprising if somebody who had a heart attack. Run over by truck. Somebody was bitten by a dog. It doesn't mean anything to do with the vaccine. And i think most people are saying look just ignore that. Carry on and certainly here in In in the uk. We've been told just ignore. This is not an issue. Even the european medicines Authorities said actually is is better to press ahead giving people vaccine but in the meantime you got places like denmark and poland. Thailand saying we're gonna pause on. We're not gonna do this so the minute they do that. It puts in people's mind okay. This doesn't look good already. People have been cautious about astrazeneca. And as i said you know. I've had that vaccine and is no reaction whatsoever to it was it was. It was perfect for me. Now i would. I would say that they what we need is politicians to keep quiet and allow the medical people. Get so there's that issue then today and more you've voices saying that they should add extreme Reactions to the virus being registered on the side effects. Again that's going to cause problems when it comes down to the europeans need more of these things and not fewer and more people to to use them in an uptake. Because one final thing. I think the interesting thing here in the uk is we know there are certainly difficult is still within Black and asian communities for example. But here in the u. k. You get a tipping point. Where so many people have now. Had the the the reluctance to have the vaccine and two have astra zeneca dissipates. Goes away once you get these numbers. So i think everybody is speaking our says to have even people when i was speaking in go. I don't think i'll have everything i need. Not people like. yeah see. when can i have my vaccine.

"asian american community" Discussed on KCRW

"NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Ari Shapiro. Since the beginning of the Corona virus outbreak, harassment and violence against Asian Americans has grown the racist language former President Donald Trump used to describe the pandemics. Origins in China didn't help. And now there appears to be a growing number of attacks against older Asian Americans. At least one person has died from their injuries. Bettina Mackel and tall wrote about these events for vice and she joins us Now. Hi there. Hi there. Thank you so much for having me today. Tell us more about these violent attacks. What's what's been happening in these last few weeks. Of course, so the current conversation was kicked off by an incident on January 28th Be sure to return a poxy and 84 year old man from Thailand was taking his routine morning walk in San Francisco. When out of nowhere, he was violently pushed to the ground by a 19 year old attacker as a family described him be show was nearly blind. He was gentle and he was beloved, and he had two young grandchildren in whose lives he was very present. His family announced. He died two days later as a result of the injuries from that fall a few days later on January 30th, a 91 year old Asian man in Chinatown in Oakland, but forcefully pushed to the ground by an unknown attacker. And across the country. On February, 3rd 61 year old Filipino man in Manhattan was slashed across the face by a stranger on the subway. He told a local news site that he was scared because he thought he was going to die and nobody on the train helped him. But these have made clear to the Asian American community is not only that we're being targeted, but specifically that the senior citizens in our community are being targeted and face the threat of violent racism. So these events have happened in the Bay Area in New York and a variety of places how our cities and city leaders responding. The city leaders have been responding, especially in San Francisco Hut by denouncing these attacks. Actually, because we're New Year is coming up this weekend. There have been recent reports that they're increasing police presence in the areas to survey the areas in light of these attacks. I know that within Asian American communities, there's been a lot of anger and fear. Tell me about what specifically Activists and organizations are calling for right now, What do they want to see happen first, and foremost activists and community members are asking for attention to these issues. I think it has been clear to us that there has been a rising tide of anti Asian sentiment, and this has been something that the Asian American community has been dealing with the start of a pandemic. Many of these incidents have been reported locally but not necessarily reported in and critics sent in national publications. I think a lot of people are asking for a national spotlight and asking for allies to come out and publicly denounce this racism and violence that we're experiencing violent crime has grown over the last year in many big cities. What makes officials conclude that these are targeted hate crimes rather than part of that broader wave. Absolutely so. In March of 2020. The stop A Pia I hate reporting center was established in response to this growing xenophobia and anti Chinese sentiment that came with the covert 19 pandemics. Just within March and June, 2020 alone they've recorded over 2100 hate incidents against Asian Americans. Those ranged from verbal altercations in public and, luckily in smaller part that is involved some physical attacks as well. As the return of poverty, family wrote in there, go fund me. This isn't the first time that they've experienced. You know anti Asian racism over the course of the pandemic, But it is unfortunately, the first time that it has Turned deadly for them. So the fear is that in our community is that the aren't flat as a whole.
