the asian american
experience
In these turbulent
times, bakery owners
discuss their impact.
BY BRIAN AMICK
When the COVID-19 pandemic first took hold in the
United States, we had little to no idea where we would
be as a nation just one year later, much less how it would
manifest in our feelings and behaviors. The fear that has
pervaded throughout our society since then has led to
several discouraging reactions, most notably the rising
violence against Asian Americans, who have been blamed
for the pandemic despite having no more involvement
in its spread than any other US citizen.
According to research released by reporting forum
Right: Caption
Stop AAPI Hate, there were 6,603 hate incident reports
from March 19, 2020 to March 31, 2021. The types of
discrimination reported include verbal harassment
(65.2%), shunning (18.1%), physical assault (12.6%), civil
rights violations (10.3%) and online harassment (7.3%).
Many of these incidents took place in public streets and
parks (37.8%) and businesses (32.2%). The number of
hate incidents has continued to climb in the past few
months since this report came out.
As misinformation and ignorance about COVID-19 and
the AAPI (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) community
spreads from those with microphones, cameras
and social media feeds to those who are susceptible,
the violence continues against these members of our
society, who overwhelmingly worry about their safety.
Eight out of 10 Asian Americans say violence against
them is rising in the US, according to a recent survey
from Pew Research Center.
Not only are these people deserving of respect
and dignity, but it's important to remember just how
significant the Asian influence is on our culture and
where we would be without that positive influence.
This is especially true in the baking world, where some
of our most influential bakers have come from the
AAPI community. Take, for instance, Belinda Leong
and Joanne Chang. Both women are former winners
of the James Beard Foundation's Outstanding Baker
