Stop AAPI Hate Youth Report   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "After eighteen weeks (3.19.20-7.22.20), Stop AAPI [Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders] Hate has received 341 reports of anti-Asian discrimination involving youth nationally. These cases make up 16% of all self-reported hate incidents to Stop AAPI Hate (N= 2,499) during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. [...] AAPI high school students are the racial group most likely to be bullied in California, especially because of their limited English proficiency, immigrant status, culture and religion. The COVID-19 pandemic and inflammatory political rhetoric have led to even greater verbal harassment of AAPI students both at school, in public places and online. [1] In over half of the incidents (56%), perpetrators employed anti-Chinese language. This pattern demonstrates the racial animosity stoked by political rhetoric. [2] In almost half of the cases (48%), multiple perpetrators attacked AAPI youth. This pattern of group bullying heightens the intimidation and trauma caused by the bullying. [3] Adults were present 48% of the time, yet only in 10% of the cases did a bystander intervene. Either these adults were the perpetrators or complicit in allowing hate incidents to occur. [4] In six out of ten cases, adults harassed AAPI youth. Conversely, 41% of the incidents involved youth-on-youth bullying."
