Asian-Americans Under Attack

A wave of violence has plagued Asian-American communities across the country in recent months, including the murder of eight people, six of them Asian-American, at massage parlors in Atlanta. Other locales, from New York City to Oakland, California, have seen a spike in assaults and robberies of Asian-American residents, prompting outrage and a nationwide conversation about anti-Asian bias.

Public commentators, however, have struggled to pin down the causes of this crime wave, fixating on "white supremacy" and former President Donald Trump while paying little attention to the details on the ground. What is really causing the increase in attacks? And more importantly, what can we do to stop them?

To answer these questions and more, Manhattan Institute fellow Charles Fain Lehman brought together a panel of experts who are close to the issues at hand. Lehman joined by Carl Chan, president of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce; Ravi Satkalmi, Deputy Director for Analysis for the New York City Police Department; and Wesley Yang, columnist at Tablet magazine.
