Sage, 6th- Oakland, CA
Recently there has been a big impact on Asians. People think that Asians are the cause of the Coronavirus. Asians have been getting attacked out of nowhere, and people have been getting hurt as well. A 61-year-old man named Yao Pan Ma was recently attacked as he was approached from behind, when the man pushed him to the ground, then he was kicked in the head multiple times.
A lot of protests and rallies were held as people protested about Asian hate here are some recent ones, according to Wikipedia, in Berkeley: Around 1,200 people held a march in West Berkeley on March 28, and in Los Angeles: On March 27, a solidarity march was held in Koreatown. I don't know why people don't try to make the world a better place.
Over 3,090 people have helped to stop Asian hate and that was just in California, in Hawaii Honolulu: A Stop Asian Hate rally was held at the Hawaii State Capitol. People all around the world care about the discriminations that are happening to Asians and that is important because people’s lives matter and it is important that you realize that because if you don’t you might end up doing the wrong thing.
I think it is very important to support the Stop Asian Hate movement because there is no reason to punish people just because you think it is right when it is wrong. People have rights that they live up to and I think you should live up to them too because not only are you making a huge impact on them you are also making an impact on the world and other people’s life. It is a scary thing not to know if your family might get hurt today so stand up proud and STOP ASIAN HATE.
