Text abuse

Yesterday, while I sent out text messages to our community members in regards to voters receiving improper purge notices, I got a truly racist text back with "ching chong ...... and F@%k off." It is fine that they want to opt out of text message program but to have blatantly racist comment and text, this is unacceptable. #ThisIs2017

An Unsafe Commute

During an otherwise innocent morning commute, I was walking from my house to the nearest metro stop. As I made my way onto a sidewalk near the station, a tall white guy approached me, a small Asian guy dressed in full suit and tie for work. No matter which way I wanted to go, he deliberately block my path forward. He then stared me down and repeatedly asked me where I was from.

Shocked, my mind paralyzed for a few seconds as my eyes could only be fixated on his threatening eye gaze. I then said "Please...I am just going to the metro stop," hoping he would just let me go. Not only did he not go, he further threatened that he would punch my nose and put me in a coma if I walked into him, and that he had done exactly that to someone a day before. I then immediately ran to the metro station and reported the incident to station guards.

"You're trash"

After a parade, my significant other, friend and I were walking back to a friend's house after getting pizza. While we were enjoying our pizza, a woman yells at us. She said, "You're trash. Go back to where you came from." My SO tells her that he is from Seattle. She approaches him and gets closer and then headbutts him.

At the mall

I was walking through the mall as a middle aged man wearing business clothes was coming walking in the other direction. He was walking in an odd way so I believe he could have been intoxicated or mentally disabled. When we passed one another he suddenly leaned in towards my face and yelled at me, "Die, you f*cking Chink!" and then kept walking.

"You People Don't Give Change"

Not sure of exact date, but occurred prior to 2016 presidential election. Elder Caucasian female went to purchase lottery scratcher tickets in a machine. Placed in $20 bill but the machine did not give change (stated on the machine). She was upset and stated never come in here again. Asian clerk stated people ask for change. The Caucasian female stated "you people don't give change, Go Trump!" and left the store.
