Racism against Chinese-Americans is personal for CNN’s Lisa Ling, who uses her series This is Life to explore its history

  • Ling uses her CNN series to explore racism against Chinese, recalling Vincent Chin’s 1982 murder that she says ‘exacerbated that feeling of un-belonging for me’
  • She includes clips of herself at a Stop Asian Hate rally in Los Angeles, and says she sees a silver lining in Asian-Americans talking to each other about racism
