Asians in American say they have been the subjects of racially-motivated attacks since the outbreak of COVID-19.

Wearing masks is normal in Asian culture, but makes Asians stand out in America, where incidents have been reported across the country, from San Francisco to New York City

In normally peaceful State College, Joanna Kuo, Celeste Wang
, Alicia Chiang
 and Skye Chang all said they felt uncomfortable and singled out because of the masks they wear, although none of them was physically assaulted.

Asians have stood out less since April 18, when Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf decreed that everyone in the state must have a mask in public.
