PUBLIC HARASSMENT: THIS HAPPEN TO ME…

This happened to me yesterday while working in a small neighborhood called Howard Beach, located in NYC. A stranger came up to me and started using racial slurs against me for being “communist” and that I didn’t belong here. He then started to ask me, “where I’m really from” and repeated that same question even after I told him that I was born here. He started to get agitated, and at that point, I noticed it and knew that he wanted to be provoked, so I immediately disengaged and told him that I was leaving. He then said, “no, you’re not leaving because I need to do something to you first.” At that point, I quickly left the scene and decided to report this feeling because it was not okay and I felt targeted for being Asian.
