Since before pandemic lockdowns and closures hit California, racism and violence have been targeted at people of Asian descent here, around the U.S. and beyond. The Times has covered these issues with reporting on incidents, survey results, reactions and people’s efforts to resist hate and violence, as well as opinion coverage. And, more recently, there’s the coverage of the Atlanta-area shootings that killed eight people, six of whom were women of Asian heritage, and their aftermath.
