Philippine Consulate in NY receives 18 reports of anti-Asian hate

At least 18 Filipinos this year have reported they’ve been the victim of anti-Asian hate to the Philippine Consulate General in New York, reported GMA News Online.

The incidents include a Filipino nurse who just this month suffered bruising after being attacked while distributing free face masks to subway commuters.

That nurse who has been identified as Potri Ranka Manis was assaulted by a couple who refused to take the mask.

The couple also is accused of telling Manis to “go back to China” and also stealing her cell phone.

In another incident in June, a Philippine Consular Officer based in New York reported being verbally assaulted on a train, according to CNN.

“We don’t need you here! F**ck you! I hope you all die and everybody on this train,” the assailant told the officer.

A new report just released this week by the hate crime reporting site, Stop AAPI Hate, found that just over 9% of the victims have been Filipinos, third after Chinese and Koreans.

New York accounted for 16% of all hate crime report, second only to California with 38.6%.
