Asian Americans Face Attacks During COVID-19 Pandemic
Some follow up on the jogger who was assaulted by two women in Naperville, Illinois last month… The original reporting left out the fact that the victim was Asian, and the attack was indeed a hate crime. According to WBEZ, a 60-year-old Chinese American was running along a trail when one of the women threw a log at him, accused him of being sick, told him to “go back to China,” and spat at him.

It reads: “To Tenants: Due to the Chinese Communist Party FILTH VIRUS we are trying to avoid close communication with our clients. Please knock on the door if the light is on….” Classy.
