From Kuchibhotla to Kal Penn: How Hate Crimes Build Off Liberal Media

Yesterday, the New Yorker published a stirring article on Being Indian in Trump’s America, a rumination by Amitava Kumar on racial violence, hate crimes and the tensions that come with being South Asian in America. Around the same time, Indian American actor Kal Penn tweeted images of racist scripts offered to him at the beginning of his acting career. The two pieces, juxtaposed together, offer a handy depiction of hate: a dehumanization project that begins with media stereotyping and logically concludes in racist violence.

Freedom of the Press Faces Grave Threat Under Trump, And You Can Help Now

Trump’s looming presidency grows more and more ominous to all minority communities by the day, with the rise of hate crimes upon his election; his public commentary on overturning Roe vs. Wade; his plans for mass and unprecedented deportation; his appointment of fearful, hatemongering, and unapologetic scumbag racists, white supremacists, misogynists, and homophobes to his cabinet. One (out of the many) alarming features of an America under Trump? The lack of a free press to expose his corruption and wrongdoings, keep the public informed, and hold him accountable.
