Me and my white husband were walking in the street in the evening. A young white woman, who was walking toward our direction with 4 other white men, yelled out an unpleasant, unsolicited remark on us: "A conservative looking Asian and a white..." We couldn't hear the rest as she said it under the breath. I don't care what she thought of how I look. But I was hurt because no one on the street would've commented on us like that had I not been Asian woman.
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.
Neighbors saying things like "Chinese motherf*cker" and "go eat an egg roll" and in general being territorial and rude and aggressive, constantly giving a hard time
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.

My friend and I - both Chinese American - visited Chicago for Spring Break this past year. Upon the first night of arrival, we decided to walk around and soak in the city. As we were walking along the street, a white man sitting on the steps shouted after us, saying and almost singing, "Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, you're all I see..." to which my friend and I tried to ignore. However, the man continued to sing after us and even followed us for a few blocks making remarks about us and calling us racial slurs and epithets. After a few blocks, he gave up, but the incident left us feeling very uncomfortable and unsafe. The blatant fetishization that was directed at us was really disturbing.
