Supervisor Matt Haney has said he’ll introduce a resolution Tuesday apologizing to the Chinese community for the city’s history of racism against early immigrants.
On this episode of the Fifth & Mission podcast, reporter Shwanika Narayan joins host Cecilia Lei to explain the history, and community advocates Dennis Wu and Drew Min — who suggested the resolution to Haney — share what it symbolizes.
