       Anti-Asian Hate and Violence
              Cannot Be Ignored
By Sharyl Kato
Co-Chair, Wisconsin Organization for Asian Americans

The horrific atrocity of eight individuals murdered in Atlanta, last
week, amplifies many triggers for me, on many different levels,
personal, professional, social and political. This tragedy and so
many others, occurring over the past year, highlights the racism
our country has held for centuries, against Asian Americans.  
Feelings of fear and dread rise for me, now, from my childhood and
throughout adulthood, having observed and experienced
harassment.

Editor’s Note – Due to the lack of space and the importance that
this column be timely, I cede my column space to Sharyl Kato,
co-chair of the Wisconsin Organization for Asian Americans.
Reflections will return with our April 5th edition.
Many Americans are confused about how to
view, or think about Asian Americans, that
is, if they view them at all.  There are many
commonalities in racism towards varying
groups of color, but there are also
differences.  Racism towards Asian
Americans has a different “slant..  During the
war, a fear of Asian Americans as
threats to physical safety, as depicted in comic books, as the
“sneaky,” “mysterious,”  “sadistic,” “yellow peril.”   Asian
Americans are viewed as financial threats, academic, or as
business competitors.  Assumptions about Asian Americans as
foreigners, or since our skin color is not dark enough, have higher
income, or education, deem us as not qualifying as a “legitimate”
protected minority. --
