Prevent Asian Hate Discriminations in the Workplace
Although anti-Asian racism is far from a new development in the United States, it has spiked over the past year due to misinformation about the COVID-19 virus. A recent report from Stop AAPI Hate tracked the number of racist incidents that occurred against the AAPI community between March 19, 2020 and February 28, 2021. The study revealed that there were at least 3,795 hate incidents over that time but acknowledged that the number is "only a fraction" of the total that likely occurred. According to the Stop AAPI Hate report, businesses are the primary site of discrimination (35.4%), followed by public streets (25.3%), and public parks (9.8%). Chinese are the largest ethnic group (42.2%) that report experiencing hate, followed by Koreans (14.8%), Vietnamese (8.5%), and Filipinos (7.9%).
