LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – On Wednesday night, the University of Kentucky hosted a discussion about combating anti-Asian violence in the United States.
Members of the UK Office of China Initiatives hosted that talk with local activists, including Dan Wu.
Wu is an Asian-American immigrant who runs a local campaign that supports immigrants and refugees.
During his talk, he spoke about the effects of systemic racism on Asians and Asian Americans and how to stop the spread of it on a local level.
“Honestly it’s just standing up for us. When you hear things, when you hear people say things to you like jokes, comments that are denigrating really in any marginalized community. They’re talking to you because they think you are one of them and that I can say this to you, right? It’s cool ,right? It’s not cool, make it not cool,” advised Wu.
