De Blasio’s denouncement comes after two separate attacks against Asian Americans in New York on March 10. That morning, a 23-year-old woman told police another woman punched her in the face and made anti- Asian slurs, and the victim had to go to the hospital. Later in the evening, a 59-year-old man said he was approached by a suspect who used anti-Asian remarks and the kicked him, causing him to fall. The NYPD said the victim refused medical attention at the scene.

Reaction to the prompt
My initial reaction to this prompt was one of disbelief and shock. Next, came fear and anger. How could some Americans stoop so low as to blame Asain Americans in general and Chinese Americans in particular for this virus disrupting the lives of so many throughout the world? I found it hard to believe that some American could be so ignorant or so full of hate. Then, I began to worry and fear for my own safety as well as the safety of those I love since I could easily be mistaken for a Chinese American by some people. I remember the day following 9/11 when many people who were from the Middle East or look like someone from the Middle East was violently attacked and in some cases even killed by misguided and misinformed Americans. This made me angry as well as fearful for the safety of Chinese Americans and anyone looking like Chinese Americans.
ဒီေနရာမွာ right answer နဲ႔ wrong answer ဆုိတာ မရွိဘူးဆုိတာကုိ သေဘာေပါက္ဖုိ႔လုိပါတယ္။ ေဖာ္ျပပါ reaction နဲ႔ explanation ေလးက Asain American တစ္ေယာက္ရဲ႕ ရႈ႕ေထာင့္က ေဖာ္ျပထားျခင္းျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ American တစ္ေယာက္ရဲ႕ response ကာတစ္မ်ဳိးျဖစ္ႏုိင္ပါတယ္။ ဥပမာ-ေဖာ္ျပပါ response ေလးကုိၾကည့္ လုိက္ပါ။
My initial reaction to this prompt was one of disbelief and shock. Next came understanding and concern. I could see how some Americans given the circumstances and the fact that the coronavirus originated in China might blame the Asians in general and Chinese in particular for the spread of the virus. However, I totally disagree with their violent response to this issue. I worry that emotion could run hight and lead some Americans to commit crimes against the Asain American community. Since I have many friends in the Asain American community, I worry for their safety and hope the government will take appropriate action to prevent any violence against them.
ဒီေနရာမွာ response ေလးႏွစ္ခုဟာ ခပ္ဆင္ဆင္ျဖစ္ေနေသာ္လည္း ကြဲျပားျခားနားတာကုိလည္း ျမင္ဖုိ႔လုိပါတယ္။ တစ္ေယာက္က မိမိနဲ႕ မိမိရဲ႕ မိသားစုအတြက္ စုိးရိမ္ရတာပါ။ ေနာက္တစ္ေယာက္ကေတာ့ သူငယ္ခ်င္းမိတ္ေဆြမ်ားအတြက္ စုိးရိမ္ရတာဆုိေတာ့ နည္းနည္းေပါ့ေနတာေပါ့ေနာ္။ ေနာက္ဆုံးအခ်က္ကေတာ့ ဒီလုိ ျပသနာမ်ဳိးေတြကို ဘယ္လုိေျဖရွင္းၾကမလဲ၊ သုိ႔မဟုတ္ မျဖစ္လာေအာင္ ဘယ္လုိဟန္႔တားၾကမလဲ ဆုိတဲ့ သေဘာပါပဲ။ အခ်ဳိ္႕ prompt က solution ကုိလုိပါတယ္။
အခ်ဳိ႕ prompt ကေတာ့ prevention ကုိဦးစားေပးရမွာပါ။ ကဲ နမူနာေလးတခုနဲ႔ ယခုလမွာေတာ့ နိဂုံးခ်ဳပ္ၾကပါစုိ႕။
Moving forward, I really think the administration needs to react more quickly to such a crisis like a coronavirus. By dragging its feet and by doing nothing to dispel false information or rumours, the government of the US added to the confusion and may have even aided in the actions of some Americans against Asian Americans. I sincerely believe that the administration is to blame for Xenophobia and that those of us in positions of power and influence need to be more careful about what we say or what we do in such times.
