34] – There will be a webinar Countering Anti-Asian Racism on Mon., Feb. 28 at 8 PM EST. Register at  The Committee for a Sane U.S.-China Policy will examine the intersections between US colonial and anti-China policies in Asia and the Pacific and the past and present of anti-Asian racism in the United States.  From the time Chinese laborers first arrived in the United States nearly two centuries ago, through the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to today, Asians and Pacific Islanders have been colonized, attacked, excluded, marginalized, discriminated against, and been the victims of brutal racist violence.

 Current anti-China politics have domestic as well as international expression. Racism, racist violence, and discrimination against Asian Americans have risen in tandem with anti-China politics. The FBI’s infamous “China Initiative,” supposedly intended to stop Chinese theft of military and scientific secrets, instead targeted respected scientists for merely failing to report ties to Chinese scientific institutions. To better expose this history and the relationship between anti-Asian policies and anti-Asian racism at home, and to explain how we can help end these injustices, the Committee has invited four noted scholars and activists to participate in this important webinar.
