Statement Condemning Anti-Asian Violence
The Department of Sociology condemns the continued violence directed at Asian communities in the United States and stands in solidarity with our Asian communities in their grief and outrage. We unequivocally condemn anti-Asian racism and discrimination in all forms. The death of six Asian American women in the suburbs of Atlanta on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 is a result of both misogyny, and anti-Asian racism. The attack represents only the most recent example of violence against Asian communities in this country. We call on members of Texas A&M University to actively step in when they witness hateful actions against Asians. It is our duty to recognize and teach that this racism and misogyny have deep historical and cultural roots and work tirelessly to eradicate anti-Asian racism.
