Summary Ms. Zia drew on her own research and experiences to discuss how to combat systemic oppression against Asian Americans.   She described the pendulum of racism towards Asian Americans starting from the Chinese,  then the Japenese, then the Vietnamese, Korean, …and now  back Chinese – a pandemic of racism!  She believed that this is partly due to angst and frustration, resulting in blaming others.
