Many activists are saying the deadly shootings in Atlanta were just a tipping point for the Asian American community. Earlier this week, a man kicked a 65-year-old woman in New York City, stomped on her, and made anti-Asian statements, all while bystanders seemingly did nothing. We talk to actor and activist Daniel Wu about these hate crimes, the emasculation of Asian men and hypersexualization of Asian women, more visibility for Asian Americans, and fighting against systemic racism for all.
