By Aaron Humes: As part of the executive orders prepared and signed as he took office, U.S. President Joe Biden wants to disavow racism and xenophobia toward Asian Americans connected to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Independent (UK) reports via CBS News

Among the raft of decisions is a direction to federal agencies to examine whether xenophobic references such as “China virus” or “Kung Flu,” phrases regularly used by predecessor Donald Trump, appear in existing policies, directives, or on government websites. 

There has been a documented and significant increase in harassment and violence on Asian Americans since the beginning of the pandemic, and the Justice Department would be tasked to address this issue including collecting more data on it. The decision was seen as positively distancing the federal government from the rhetoric of his predecessor. 

The Department of Health and Human Services was also asked to develop language and cultural training related to COVID-19, as well as broader guidance relating to dispelling racial myths. 

Another equity action is also expected to be announced relating to Tribal governments, fair housing, and private prisons, CBS reports. Additional measures are also being prepared on voting rights.
