Attacks on Asian Americans must be forcefully condemned

March 16, 2021

Over the weekend, Gov. Larry Hogan was asked on CNN about attacks on Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic, and his response was direct and forceful calling them “outrageous” and “unacceptable.” The governor has some direct knowledge of this. His wife, Yumi Hogan, is Korean American, and he told host Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” that she, their three daughters and their grandchildren have suffered its effects. “We feel it personally with my daughter, who sort of is sometimes afraid to come visit us, with people who had best friends that were being harassed at the grocery store, or being called names, and people yelling about the China virus, even though they’re from Korea and born in America,” Governor Hogan said.
