“This mass shooter was targeting Asian women and their businesses. Protect Asian women, solidarity with sex workers, #StopAsianHate.”And as posts went viral, with comments affirming their calls for change, the news kept coming. “Atlanta shooting suspect told investigators that killings of Asian women weren’t racially motivated, police say,” said a Washington Post news alert.

Because the myth suggests upward mobility, it creates a fallacy that Asian Americans don’t experience struggle or racial discrimination.
