"If any of my fellow Asian-American comrades have something to say about what I did, I’m willing to listen to you"

A Joe Biden supporter has been caught on camera spewing anti-Asian hate.

According to Asian Dawn, the incident occurred at a political rally in New York where Trump and Biden supporters descended into verbal abuse.

Identified as Nicholas James, the man is seen in the video shouting, “film me! Film me you fucking chinks! Fucking dumbass chinks!”

An Asian woman draped in an American flag and Trump hat responds toJames, “you are racist!”

“Fuck you!” James replies, “shut the fuck up you dumb scribble racist pieces of shit!”

James then turns away, puts on his blue mask, and walks away.

The Democrat supporter has since issued a statement defending his comments on his Instagram account (@bckpffngscht).

“What I said yesterday was undeniably vitriolic and hateful,” he wrote. “It wasn’t constructive in any way. I know this, and I won’t apologize for it.”

“Yesterday wasn’t about being constructive. Yesterday wasn’t about teaching people, or trying to get them on my side.”

“Yesterday was about rage, rage fueled by a group of minorities advocating for a violent fascist regime, rage fueled by people who look like me upholding white supremacy and anti-blackness, rage fueled by the knowledge that those people are unknowledgeable of the hate that their own people have endured throughout a white supremacist history.”

“I’m not going to hide behind the excuse that anger justified my words, they don’t, because I chose those words purposefully. I chose to use a slur that was used against me my whole life.”

“I chose to use language that would strike a nerve. If any of my fellow Asian-American comrades have something to say about what I did, I’m willing to listen to you, I’m willing to talk about how it made you feel, and how you feel it affects our community.”

In other news, President Trump is gaining support from Asian American communities.
