The discrimination towards Asian Americans during this pandemic is out of control. Basketball player Jeremy Lin is trending right now because he was called “Coronavirus” during a G League game.
I became a fan of Jeremy Lin when he broke out in 2012 when he was with the New York Knicks. He led the Knicks to a winning streak, which earned him the nickname: “Linsanity.” After the Linsanity era, his career has been a rollercoaster. A part of it had to do because he wasn’t getting the opportunities he deserved and injuries catching up. He was still putting up solid numbers, but teams weren’t seeing that.
Lin did the right thing by coming out and share his story. He published this story on Twitter.
