Why has there been a rise in anti-Asian hate crime in the US‪?‬

17th March 2021

This episode from In Focus examines the rise in hate crime against Asian-Americans, partly as a result some of the rhetoric used by certain members of government and segments of the media during the pandemic.

This episode does contain material and language that some people may find offensive. Like yesterday's post, this could be used as part of a discussion about racism, prejudice and discrimination.
