Reports of hate incidents against Asian American and Pacific Islanders have skyrocketed in the past year, coinciding with former President Trump’s racist rhetoric.

The pattern is clear: Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are being terrorized by harassment and violence. Georgia state representative Bee Nguyen tells NPR the shootings in Atlanta this week have rattled the Asian-American community in her state.
