Last night, eight people were fatally injured in Asian-owned spas in the Atlanta area. There were six Asians. And since last March, there have been nearly 3,800 reports of hate incidents targeting Asian Americans in the United States, according to Stop hating AAPI. “Once again, we see that hatred is deadly,” said the Georgian senator Reverend Raphael Warnock tweeted.
Today, we keep the families of the victims closed in our hearts and support the Asian-American community. “No word can fully describe what I feel like an American in Asia. We are extremely exhausted, heartbroken, angry, ”he writes Kim Saira on Instagram. Add Claire Tran on Twitter: “With what’s going on in Atlanta, I just want to make love to everyone who – like me and many friends – grew up sitting around our parents’ nail salon or restaurant or nervously waiting to return home from an overnight shift to the store. The concern never goes away. “
