      So important to shut down and call out any discriminatory talk about this pandemic. This is so heartbreaking. All of my Asian friends in NYC are terrified right now and we are such a diverse city. I can’t imagine how much scarier it might be in places where there is less diversity. Please tell your family and friends all over the country this is not okay.

      Not sure how I feel about them including the gun buying tidbit in this article, especially the mention of the controversial AR-15.. I feel like it takes away from the focus which is that there are racist attacks going on in our country and we should all be doing our part to make ourselves aware and become outspoken allies to Asians everywhere
