Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Asian Hate Crimes: Asians with Attitudes Group Helps Elderly Stay Safe” – below is their description.
The Senate passed by an overwhelming margin legislation designed to combat hate crimes in the U.S., as lawmakers united to respond after a sharp increase in attacks against Asian-Americans since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
Meet Jimmy Bounphengsy. Here’s why he started a group called Asians with Attitudes to help protect the Asian-American community in Stockton, California against attacks.
“They said just call for help,” said Bounphengsy. “It was sad.”
An estimated 3,800 hate crime incidents against people of Asian descent were recorded between March 19, 2020 — around when lock downs started — and Feb. 28, 2021, according to the tracking initiative Stop AAPI Hate. Most were verbal harassment and shunning, but 11% of them were instances of physical assault.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
