Anti-Asian hate in America scaring away Chinese tourists

A new study has found that Chinese tourists are not interested in traveling to America because of the rise in anti-Asian hate.

CNN reports that business intelligence company Morning Consult found in their recent study that “a plurality of Chinese have little to no interest in US travel.” According to the study, 22% of mainland Chinese respondents are “not interested at all” in visiting the U.S., 23% are “not that interested.”

Fear has increased among the Asian American community as anti-Asian hate continues to rise throughout the pandemic. A Pew Research Center survey found that a third of Asian adults feared that someone might physically attack them. That fear appears to have spread beyond the U.S. borders.

According to the Morning Consult survey, the Chinese respondents who had little to no interest in traveling cited anti-Asian hate and violence as reasons. Around 44% listed anti-China bias as reason and 57% listed violent crime as a reason.

“There are strong perceptions in China that there is a lot of global bias against their country,” Scott Moskowitz, geopolitical risk analyst for APAC told CNN. “Personal and national identity are very strongly tied in China so there may be concerns that more macro and political grievances and resentments (both real and perceived) with a country will be turned back towards the individual when traveling abroad.”

  1. Well, this is exactly what the white nationalists want, isn’t it. To get rid of us… just like in the latter half of the 19th century.
