CGTN published this video item, entitled “Finding True America: “Who’s going to be attacked tomorrow?” Asian American woman questioned” – below is their description.
Hate attacks targeting Asians and Asian Americans have escalated in the United States, fueling protests and outrage among many Asian Americans and other races. Shirley Ng, who grew up in the #Chinatown in New York City’s Manhattan borough, is frustrated with the racist rhetoric and what is happening in the country, especially the shooting that killed six Asian women on March 16. Frustration, sadness and emotional exhaustion make Ng think, “Who’s going to be attacked tomorrow?”
To try to stop the hate, Ng joined her friend’s movement to empower Asian Americans through grassroots efforts to stand up against hate. They made posters and put them in the community, sending the messages of how to protect oneself and encouraging victims and bystanders to report crimes. “I believe when one day when there’s no racism, we can all walk freely, we’re all at peace with each other … and I feel that we can all live in this world where we can just have this love of each other, and appreciate our differences,” said Ng.CGTN YouTube Channel
