Saturday Links: Asian American Grandmother Attacked in SF Celebrated at Giants Game

  • To thank Xiao Zhen Xie, an Asian-American grandmother who was attacked in San Francisco last month, the Giants organization invited her and her family to enjoy yesterday’s game in the suite. Supervisor Matt Haney also attended and visited Xie (in a socially distant way) to praise the giant’s attitude towards the hatred of Asian Americans. Since then, Xie has donated nearly $ 1 million from the GoFundMe campaign, which was established under her name, to organizations and efforts to help spread racism against the Asian-American community.
