The COVID-19 pandemic sparked completely unwarranted boycotts of Chinatown restaurants and shops around the globe, as well as an increase in violent hate crimes against the Asian community. These racist fears were further stoked in the United States. by the former President and his followers continued use of racist epithets to describe the coronavirus. However, anti-Asian racism did not start with COVID-19.  This workshop will outline the history of anti-Asian racism, discuss the usage of microaggressions and the model minority myth, and how to be an ally to AAPI community.
