I saw the clip of two white men (a father and a son) shot and killed a black kid jogging. The violence shook me to the core. Then I saw another clip of black kids kicking an elderly Asian woman in the face just for the fun of it also broke my heart. Both incidents were outrageous. An unarmed black kid didn’t deserve to die and a defenseless Asian woman didn’t deserve to get kicked in the face either. I am no way comparing a murderous incident to a dumb-yet-disturbing act—they need to be brought to justice—but I want to draw attention to both cases. America, we have a serious race issue that needs to be addressed. We need to stop all these hate crimes.
