The coronavirus pandemic has led to a rise in reported xenophobic and racist attacks on members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Today, we continue our discussion on how incidents of hate crimes against the AAPI community are up, as is fear within the community that firearms will be used against them.

Host JJ and Kelly Sampson are joined by Dr. Russell Jeung, Chair and Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University to talk about why racist and xenophobic rhetoric has the potential to be even deadlier than the coronavirus outbreak.
