Susan L. Shin Letter to the Editor: Asian-American Voices
AABANY President Susan L. Shin’s Letter to the Editor about Michael Luo’s Op-Ed and follow-up article has been published in the New York Times. Here is an excerpt:
I commend your prominent featuring of “An Open Letter to the Woman Who Told Us: Go Back to China,” by Michael Luo, an editor at The New York Times, and “Readers Respond to the Racist Insults Shouted at a Times Editor” (Race/Related series, Oct. 11).
The response to Mr. Luo’s open letter indeed “tapped into a deep reservoir of emotions held by many Asian-Americans” about the racism they have experienced and continue to endure.

Thank you, Susan, for speaking up about the latest anti-Asian American incident that has been publicized in the press.
