The History Of Anti-Asian Sentiment In The U.S (4 minutes)
NPR’s Ailsa Chang talks with Dale Minami, lawyer and former Asian American studies professor at U.C. Berkeley, about the history of anti-Asian sentiment in the United States.
The implication that racism and sexism are two separate motivations has prompted outrage among Asian American women who say the two have always been inseparable in their experience — especially so in the context of the recent surge in anti-Asian attacks.

In the wake of Tuesday’s mass shooting in Atlanta, guest host Ayesha Rascoe talks to critical race theorist and professor Jennifer Ho about the history behind anti-Asian racism and what it means to be an Asian woman in America.
