Bike confrontation at Lake Merritt

Early after Trump was elected, a tall bald white Man approached me, a Chinese American Male, and got within 4" in my face yelling, "WE WON! WE WON!" and "Get the f**k out now, we own this country, ch*nk". I got on my bike and started to ride away and he proceeded to get in his white van and menacingly followed me. When we came to a light, he bumped my tire, causing me to be knocked off my bike and he yelled "Asians Gonna Die!" I'm Chinese but very much look, speak, and dress like your typical Californian. Lake Merritt is also a more gentrified area of Oakland and predominantly Asian, White, and Indian.
