TORRE SAYS ‘FEAR’ DOMINATES ASIAN AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

T

Pablo Torre appeared on ESPN SportsCenter this weekend to share his perspective on what it means to be Asian American.

Torre , the host of ESPN Daily podcast, said:

To be Asian American is to feel foreign; it’s to feel like you never really get to be American; it’s to feel forgotten, misrepresented, invisible, like your identity is flattened.

Torre is not the first Asian American athlete to speak out against hate-filled attacks against its community. In recent weeks Jeremy Lin and Naomi Osaka have used traditional and social media to share their anger and frustration about how Asian Americans are treated in the United States. The fear elevated this past week when eight people — six of Asian descent — were killed by an Atlanta gunman.
