Asian Americans face a somber reality in 2022: Despite a new administration, a relative decline in the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic, and an improved economy, attacks against our community continue to increase at alarming rates.
This year’s STAATUS Index reveals and reminds us that racism against Asian Americans is deeply embedded in American history, culture and institutions, and has been for over 150 years.
The “model minority” and “perpetual foreigner” stereotypes continue to harm our community and divide us from other communities of color.
The majority of Americans believe that anti-Asian racism should be addressed, and have pointed to education as a leading solution.
The time is now for greater awareness and action.
