Asian-Americans hold 1st official parade in New York with racism on the rise

Asian-Americans in New York City on Sunday held their first official heritage parade along 6th Avenue in Manhattan during a time when they have been suffering a wave of racist attacks that erupted after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the United States more than two years ago.

The Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community thus joins many other ethnic and national groups in the US in holding an annual parade to emphasize their contribution to the creation and development of the country.
