Op-Ed: West Virginians thankfully rejected Don Blankenship’s racist remarks

This racism towards AAPIs rears its head in different ways. Sometimes, it is in explicit attacks, like Blankenship’s ad. In fact, many of us AAPIs have had such explicit racist statements thrown at us. One survey of girls ages 14 to 18 by the National Women’s Law Center last year found that 46 percent of AAPI girls had been called a racial slur — more than any other group of girls.
