Bias & Microaggressions: Addressing Current Issues

Racism and xenophobia, along with many other types of microaggressions and bias, have increased as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Asians and Asian Americans have faced harassment, discrimination, and violence, while a shift to remote or virtual online learning has left many without equitable tools to learn. The use of masks by many people of color further illuminates the cultural bias society has as some are perceived as criminals although the use of protective facial coverings is advised for many across the world.
