SAN FRANCISCO, United States — After a Chinese grandmother was attacked by a white man in broad daylight in San Francisco last week, she fought back.

rr

The woman, Ms Xiao Zhen Xie, 75, was punched while walking down Market Street on March 17. She responded by hitting her assailant with a board.

rr

A suspect was arrested, and Ms Xie was left with several injuries, including two black eyes.

rr

The attack — the aftermath of which was captured in video footage that was shared widely on social media — happened during a surge of anti-Asian violence in the Bay Area and across the United States. It traumatized Ms Xie and left her with long-term injuries, according to her family.

rr

Ms Xie’s grandson, Mr John Chen, used fundraising platform GoFundMe to raise money for medical treatment and therapy for his grandmother.

rr

The public response to his fundraiser far exceeded the family’s goal: By Thursday, about US$1 million (S$1.35 million) had been raised.

rr

On Monday (March 22), Mr Chen said on the GoFundMe website that the family was planning to donate all the money to fight anti-Asian racism.

rr

“The AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) community is bleeding from this violence and hatred,” Mr Chen wrote, using an acronym for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. “We as a community cannot stay silent nor be silenced anymore. That is why our family plans to donate ALL funds generated in this GoFundMe to help the AAPI community recover, and combat racism.”

rr

Over the past year, the Bay Area has seen a spate of violent attacks and robberies against Asian Americans, as well as pandemic-related racism.

rr

The problem is widespread. In a report this month, Stop AAPI Hate, a group that tracks instances of violence and discrimination against Asian Americans in the United States, said it had received reports of 3,795 incidents between March 19, 2020, and Feb 28. But it said the number could be higher because not all episodes had been reported.

rr

The report was released on the same day that eight people, six of them Asian, were fatally shot at three Atlanta-area massage parlors.

rr

Stop AAPI Hate called the shootings “an unspeakable tragedy” for the victims’ families and the Asian American community, which has “been reeling from high levels of racist attacks.”

rr

The attack against Ms Xie was one of several that have been captured, at least in part, on video.

rr

Her assailant, whom police identified as Steven Jenkins, 39, first attacked an 83-year-old Vietnamese man, Mr Ngoc Pham, who had been grocery shopping March 17. According to police, the attacker was then chased by a security guard. He punched Ms Xie while being pursued.

rr

Video footage from the immediate aftermath of the assault shows Xie holding an ice pack to her face and telling officers and bystanders about her attacker.

rr

“One big punch came down on me,” she said in Cantonese, wailing in distress.
