PRESS RELEASE: Committee of 100 Urges Cooperation to Address Targeted Violence Against Asian Americans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Holly Chang, Executive Director
media@committee100.org or 212-371-6565

 
 

The Committee of 100 Urges Cooperation to Address
Targeted Violence Against Asian Americans 

(New York, NY, Oct. 6, 2016) — The Committee of 100 (C100) urges Asian American leaders to work with African American and other ethnic group leaders, as well as law enforcement, to address targeted violence against Asian Americans. A rap song “Meet the Flockers” by artist YG, released in 2014 but only attracting attention recently, contains an explicit message calling for home invasion burglaries of Chinese perceived to be vulnerable. 
All of us who care about our shared ideals in a diverse democracy should condemn this suggestion of criminal violence, regardless of who is the perpetrator and who is the victim. The targeting of a specific ethnic minority group, however, is egregious. Recently, there have been numerous confirmed reports of Asian Americans, especially immigrants, being singled out by race as robbery targets, whether on the street, while shopping, or in their homes. These are hate crimes and should be recognized as such.

Event Announcement: The Case of Professor Xiaoxing Xi | San Francisco, Los Angeles, Irvine

Xiaoxing Xi photo

The Committee of 100 will co-sponsor a series of presentations by Professor Xiaoxing Xi in California next week.  Professor Xi was a panelist at C-100’s Annual Conference in Los Angeles, and was also featured in the 60 Minutes presentation “Collateral Damage.” In May 2015, Professor Xiaoxing Xi was arrested and charged by the U.S. government for passing sensitive technology secrets to China. His home was raided by the FBI and he was widely labeled a spy, but months later all charges against him were dropped without explanation. The government did not understand the science in their case and had misconstrued Professor Xi’s academic work.

His case is the latest in a spate of wrongful prosecutions of Chinese American scientists for economic espionage. Come hear Professor Xi tell his story, and learn more about how you can protect yourself if you are unjustly targeted by law enforcement. He will be joined by C-100 members Brian Sun and Stewart Kwoh in Los Angeles, Dr. Hatem Bazian of UC-Berkeley, Ameena Qazi of National Lawyers Guild, Donald K. Tamaki of Minami Tamaki LLP and many others.
