I Really Can’t Stand Racism

U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Suni Lee Says She Was Target Of Racist Attack | The Daily Wire

I can’t even describe how wrong this is.

Lee told “PopSugar” that after a night out with friends — all of Asian descent — in Los Angeles, and while waiting for an Uber, a car sped by with its occupants yelling at the group to “go back where you came from” and also shouted a racist comment. Lee said her arm was hit by pepper spray by one of the occupants of the vehicle.

“I was so mad, but there was nothing I could do or control because they skirted off,” she said in the interview. “I didn’t do anything to them, and having the reputation, it’s so hard because I didn’t want to do anything that could get me into trouble. I just let it happen.”

This makes me so mad. I can’t blame Biden for this one. Racism against non-black ethnic groups has been on the rise for more than a decade, probably since 9/11. Whatever happened to “the Great American Melting Pot”? How do we get it back?
