Anti-Asian Violence

"Anti-Asian violence refers to the use of physical force, harassment, intimidation, or threat of violence against persons of Asian birth or ancestry, in a manner calculated to cause bodily harm or damage to property. While Asians may be the victims of ordinary violent crime like any other group of Americans, anti-Asian violence refers specifically to incidents in which the perpetrator is motivated by animus toward members of that community. Thus, anti-Asian violence falls under the general rubric of hate crime. The criminal justice system and sociologists regard hate crime as a special category of felony because those who suffer from it, if only psychologically, include not just the immediate victims but the entire community to which they belong."
