New Survey from SurveyMonkey and AAPI Data Detail Experiences with Racial Discrimination, Hate Crimes, and Harassment

By Globe Newswire, Benzinga |

Representatives from AAPI Data and SurveyMonkey, as well as AAPI community partners, will discuss the following trends and more, with attention to current AAPI experiences with discrimination and how those experiences compare with both the general U.S. population and other racial groups.

  • Hate crime experiences are significantly higher among Asian Americans than the national average, both in 2020 and so far in 2021.
  • Asian Americans are also less likely than Americans overall to say that they are comfortable reporting hate crimes to authorities, and more likely to say that they are concerned that they might get attacked again.
  • The "perpetual foreigner" stereotype is also prevalent; Asian Americans are three times as likely as all Americans, and 9 times as likely as Whites to be asked "where [are] you from, assuming you're not from the United States."
