  • Anti-Asian racism

Chiu examines the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the existing issues within the social economic system. In particular, Chiu examines the impact the pandemic has had in further revealing anti-Chinese discrimination in Quebec and in Canada as a whole.

Taking action

  • Fight internalized racism by building coalitions, solidarity and understanding with other oppressed groups; beware of divide and conquer tactics
  • For non-minorities be aware of the impact of white supremacy
  • Be reflexive of the model minority myth
