Abstract:This research entails gaining a deeper understanding of how Asian Americans relate to racial violence as direct and indirect victims of hate crime. In doing so, this study examines the role of hate crime and how Asian Americans manage to cope with subtle and overt expressions of bigotry, intimidation, and violence that occur daily in a complex modern society. My analysis draws upon 45 in-depth interviews with Asian Americans. They include 23 women and 22 men who are legal permanent residents, naturalized and natural born U.S. citizens. As for their ethnic background, they are Chinese, Korean, Japanese, East Asian Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese-Indonesian, Chinese-Filipino, Chinese-Malaysian, Japanese-Caucasian, and Korean-Caucasian. I interweave narratives with theory and personal observations and discuss respondents' experiences, including stories about racial identity formation and resistance within victim groups. From the viewpoints of the respondents in this study, the narratives tell about the dynamics of hate crime as a process that reinforces inner-group and outer-group statuses and separates “us from them.” These narratives also contextualize hate crime by offering information about the social conditions in which contemporary incidents of hate crime occur. The Asian Americans in this study also discuss varying definitions of hate crime that cluster around central themes. Their stories inform and warn about the changing face of racism, specifically of the impacts on the victim, offender, and larger community as racism continues to evolve into more subtle, sophisticated manifestations. Hence, this research discusses the types of problems Asian Americans are likely to experience in the United States and offers insight into the processes through which racial bigotry shapes perceptions of self, racial identity, intergroup relationships and, ultimately, social reality.
