As a 3rd generation Asian American who has been verbally “hit” by hate words – such as “Chink”, “Gook”, “Jap”, this workshop will be illuminating and hopefully, beneficial. Many people tell me that they can’t believe that we Asians/Pacific Islanders experience “hate crimes” or discrimination, but it does happen here in America (and elsewhere), along with the other racial/ethnic groups.
