Spokesman Wang Wenbin noted that systemic racism is an issue deeply rooted in U.S. society.
He made reference to the China Initiative as a manifestation of anti-Asian movements gestated in the United States.
Wang alerted to the rise of hate crime cases against the Asian community in the North American country, which increased by 76% in 2022 according to survey results. A quarter of young Asians have been victim of racial discrimination and bullying, remarked Wang.
This week 8 people, including 6 Asian-American women, were murdered in Atlanta.
It's the latest horrifying incident of anti-Asian racism in the US. In the UK, hate crimes against East & Southeast Asians are up 300% during the pandemic.
