I write today as a proud Asian American. While there is a long history of violence against Asians in this country, the events of the last year, culminating in the mass murder of Asian American women in Atlanta, have been particularly troubling. They call to me for a response. It has been quite a year. Not only has it been marked by anti-Asian statements from President Trump and other Republicans, but also by the murder of George Floyd, which also involved a Hmong officer. It is a moment that calls for reflection on the Asian American experience in this country.
