“Beijing News reporter Luan Ruoxi sports field should be the most fair and just place, the audience feel the cohesion and appeal in the cheering for the event

.

Amazingly, the recent competition has become a place of public discrimination

.

Recently, Lin Shuhao, an Asian basketball player who plays for the Professional Basketball Development League of America, was called the “new coronavirus” by another player on the court, causing public outcry

.

On February 27 local time, the Professional Basketball Development League of the United States announced an investigation into the discrimination

.

However, the discrimination against Lin is only the “tip of the iceberg” in the recent anti Asian hatred incident

.

Since the outbreak of China novel coronavirus pneumonia, many American politicians including former US President Trump have ignored the scientific fact, politicized and stigmatized COVID-19, called it “China virus”, and issued racist remarks against Asians and Asian Americans

.

In view of the recent anti Asian hate incidents, the U.S

.

Department of Justice issued a statement saying it would investigate the anti Asian hate crime

.

Lin Shuhao: humiliating others can’t solve the problem of racism

.

Lin Shuhao, 32, currently plays for the Santa Cruz warriors of NBA Development League, and is the first Chinese born NBA player in the United States

.

During the 2011-2012 season, he was known as “linsanity” because of his outstanding performance, thus becoming a well-known Asian basketball star in the United States

.

However, as an NBA veteran with nine years of experience, Lin is not immune from racial discrimination

.

Just recently, the former “crazy Lin” was called “new coronavirus” by another player on the field, which is insulting and full of discrimination against Asian Americans

.

The Professional Basketball Development League of the United States said it would investigate the matter in the spirit of health, respect and solidarity

.

In response, Lin tweeted

.

On February 27 local time, Lin responded in an article on social media that he would not name or humiliate anyone, because “knocking down” others would neither make Asian Americans safer nor solve the long-standing problem of racism in the United States

.

In order to better support the Asian Americans who are being discriminated against, Lin also put forward a series of suggestions: “listen to other people’s stories and broaden our horizons

.

I believe our generation will be different, but we need sympathy and unity to achieve this goal.” Lin Shuhao’s comments have received the attention and support of warriors coach Steve Cole

.

Cole said he applauded Lin’s remarks and fully agreed with Lin’s views on opposing racial discrimination against Asian Americans

.

“It’s really ridiculous

.

It’s obviously related to the theory that the new coronavirus originated in China put forward by many politicians, including the former president

.

It’s just shocking.” Many Asian groups are protesting in New York

.

As Lin Shuhao’s coach Cole said, many American politicians are concocting lies about the origin of the new coronavirus

.

According to the New York Times, many activists and elected officials believe that the number of hate crimes committed against Asians and Asian Americans in the United States is increasing, mainly because American politicians use racist language to describe COVID-19 during COVID-19

.

According to the data of “stop hating Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders”, a non-profit organization in the United States, from March 19, 2020 to December 31, 2020, there were more than 2800 hate incidents against Asian Americans in the United States, including 47 states and Columbia District of Washington

.

According to the data of “Asian American Justice Center” and “Asian American justice promotion center”, more than 3000 hate incidents have been recorded in their reporting system since late April 2020

.

Today, Asian Americans have to deal with the anxiety, fear and anger brought about by these hate incidents

.

“It’s really terrible for our community

.

What’s happening now is wrong.” JoAnn Yoo, executive director of the Asian American alliance, said

.

Several Asian groups in New York City protested and rallied to denounce the attacks on Asian Americans

.

On February 27, local time, several Asian groups in New York City launched a protest against hate crimes against Asian Americans

.

Hundreds of people gathered in welfare square in lower Manhattan to denounce the increasing number of hate crimes against Asian Americans in New York City and other parts of the United States, AP reported

.

The rally also included many politicians from federal, state and local governments, such as New York City Mayor bill debracio, US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, and New York State Attorney General Lettie James, who denounced the violence against Asian Americans

.

According to Schumer, prejudice against one group is actually prejudice against all people

.

Unfortunately, there is too much racism and Prejudice in this country

.

“In New York, we don’t accept this hatred,” debrassio said He added, “to stop the hatred of Asian communities is not just a message we need to deliver in New York City, but across the country.” According to Reuters, on February 26 local time, the U.S

.

Department of Justice said it would investigate the “hate crime tide” in the United States

.

At present, the United States is facing unprecedented challenges, some of which exacerbate racial prejudice

.

Pamela Kalan, Chief Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Department of civil rights of the US Department of justice, issued a statement saying that hate crimes will not be tolerated and that the Department of justice will invest all necessary resources to protect the community from “heinous” harm

.

Her office is working with the FBI, federal prosecutors and local police to assess “possible hate crimes,” but did not provide further details

.

U.S

.

Department of justice’s Chief Deputy Assistant Secretary for civil rights Pamela Kalan made a partial statement

.

The statement is a “direct response” to the rising number of recent violence against Asian Americans, a Justice Department official told Reuters

.

This is not the first time that the US government has taken measures against hate crimes

.

In January this year, President Biden signed a memorandum to condemn the racial discrimination suffered by Asian groups during COVID-19

.

He criticized the officials who politicized COVID-19, instructed relevant departments to collect data on hate crimes better, and urged federal agencies to combat racism and xenophobia against Asian and Pacific island residents

.

In September last year, the house of representatives of the United States passed a resolution condemning “all forms of anti Asian sentiment related to the new coronavirus”, believing that linking the virus with geographical location is a stigmatized act, and opposing the use of “Chinese virus”

.

However, these measures have had little effect

.

According to the New York Times, the general perception of Asian Americans is that the police and prosecutors have not taken their complaints seriously

.

Chris Kwok, a board member of the Asian American Bar Association in New York, said that the “invisibility” of the Asian American community in American politics and society has realistic consequences

.

This “invisibility” refers to the fact that Asian Americans are regarded as permanent foreigners and they cannot cross this invisible boundary.
