[ANON POST] race relations in early 80s San Francisco

Setting: San Francisco, 1982

Search terms; racism in 1980s San Francisco, race relations in 1980s San Francisco, racism against chinese in 1980s san francisco

Basically my question is how would someone from an upper middle-class white family view either Asians in general, Chinese or very specifically those who have perhaps recently immigrated and live/work in "Chinatown". I need to know both about adults who are probably in their 40s and teens at that time. I didn't grow up in the 80s so I really have no idea. The search strings only gave me very general information, I was hoping for specific information on the average person's attitudes.
