While racial slurs and other forms of verbal harassment constituted the vast majority of the incidents, nearly eight percent involved physical assaults, businesses barring Asian Americans from entering their establishments due to misplaced coronavirus fears, and attackers coughing and spitting on victims, according to STOP AAPI Hate, an anti Asian hate tracker. In one incident in March, a group of African American teenagers on a commuter rail in San Francisco used their backpacks to attack a mask wearing Asian American, saying he had COVID 19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. In another occurrence in April, a stranger threw a large rock through the atrium window of a Chinese American family s house in Santa Rosa, California. The house had Chinese writing along the front door as a blessing for good health and harmony. These are first hand accounts where individuals are describing harrowing and traumatizing experiences, including what is being said to them when they re being attacked, said Cynthia Choi, co executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action, one of the coalition partners.
One of the best responses has come from Great Britain. In a column for The Times, Prime Minister Boris Johnson proposed a path to British citizenship for nearly 3 million Hong Kong residents. Johnson writes:Many people in Hong Kong fear that their way of life which China pledged to uphold is under threat. If China proceeds to justify their fears, then Britain could not in good conscience shrug our shoulders and walk away; instead we will honor our obligations and provide an alternative.

He chose the last option. But his capitulation occurred on an alarming and unprecedented scale. Never before has a U.S. President so willfully catered to an American adversary and so effortlessly sacrificed American values and interests as the entire world watched. His performance starkly highlighted not only a lack of impulse control and appallingly poor judgment, but also a consistent and inexplicable willingness to submit to Russian interests. This was not a display of ”America first, ” but rather a very disturbing performance by a man who put himself and Russia above American interests and American values.Trump 's Helsinki performance is unprecedented in the modern history of the Presidency. He is the first who seems incapable of understanding that the national interest transcends his own fears, needs and personal interests. Whether it was Trump 's apparent dictator envy, his distaste for America 's European allies or his delight in sticking it to the foreign policy establishment mdash; or because Putin may have the goods on him mdash; Trump saw the Helsinki meeting through his personal filter of anxieties, arrogance, obsessions and prejudices. Think only of his ridiculously contrarian view that the U.S. was the primary culprit in the failing U.S. Russian relationship. Trump 's twisted way of looking at the world puts a premium on emotions, likes and dislikes mdash; and neglects careful, methodical thinking about strategy, policy and U.S. interests and how to advance them. It also allows Trump to wrongly believe that by virtue of his so believed ”fantastic ” personality and ”fabulous ” negotiating skills he can sway the most autocratic world leaders to get what he wants.
