"This is my country. This is not a Chinese country"
A racist woman in California was filmed slanting her eyes and shouting abuse at a Korean American veteran.
In a Facebook post by James Ahn, a video was shared of a woman slanting her eyes and spewing racial abuse. The incident occurred in Fremont, California.
According to Ahn, who is reportedly a Korean American Air Force veteran, the woman began her torrent of abuse because she claimed he was not driving fast enough.
“I was driving at the posted speed limit of 35mph but she wanted me to move out of her way cause she was speeding,” Ahn wrote in the post. “As I changed the lane, she kept driving towards my car gesturing to crush me and cutting in front of me to slam on the break.”
In the video clip attached to the post, the woman is heard shouting from her car, “I’m not Chinese. This is my country. This is not a Chinese [country]. Oh, My God, Chinese ugly … ugly Chinese.” She is also seen pulling her eyes back.
Ahn says he plans to press charges against the woman after recording her numberplate: 7WQG683. He encouraged people to share his post in case she is seen again on the road.
“FYI racist lady, this is my country since I am a citizen plus veteran currently serving the country,” Ahn wrote. “Do not disrespect anyone by their race!”
Commenters were quick to support Ahn and criticise the woman. “Pretty sure she’s an immigrant herself,” wrote one Facebook user. “Nobody can claim they are American except the natives-the real Native American Indians.”
“She does realize Fremont is surrounded by Union City, Newark, and Milpitas, right?…all of which are predominantly Asian-American,” another wrote. “I’d like to see her try that in my city.”
