Studies on discrimination and hate crime incidence on Asians indicate that the act of aggression and micro-aggression have a direct impact on victim’s mental and physical health. So far, however, only a few studies point out the relationship between Asian discrimination and the pandemic of Covid-19. Under this circumstance, it is necessary for research to be done in this field of the impact of emergencies on ethnic minorities, and the root causes of such impact should be understood from what perspectives. By analyzing previous researchers’ work, this research aims to find the root cause of Asian discrimination and face discrimination while minimizing the harm to victims. Drawing on Meyer’s minority stress model and social theory, the author discussed the implications of the findings and provided suggestions for policy efforts such as publishing laws and further research.
