Cynthia Choi, Co-Executive Director of Chinese for Affirmative Action, discusses the rising wave of discrimination and hostility directed toward Asian Americans, as well as how xenophobic rhetoric from elected officials, including from the Trump administration, fuels that hostility. We also discuss Trump’s Chinese student expulsion, COVID-19 and building coalitions to fight anti-AAPI racism.
