The spa shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, have shifted the conversation around a national ‘racial reckoning.’ Law enforcement officials said the shootings weren’t racially motivated but linked to sexual addiction. We talk to Sung Yeon Choimorrow — the executive director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum, an ordained minister, and a former community organizer in Chicago — about the shootings, the history of stereotyping and fetishization of Asian women, the uptick in hate crimes against Asian Americans, and how the community is taking time to heal.
