Fighting Over a Cab

This incident occurred July 2016:

After dinner, I was standing on the street trying to hail a cab. A group of two white men and three white women ran ahead of me and as I was trying to get into the cab, one of the men knocked me away from the door. In a Southern accent, he shouted at me to go back to squatting on the street with my pajamas "back where I came from". I struggled to hold on to the door and keep upright, at which point he called me a slant-eyed chink and grabbed both my arms and started shaking me. I fought to get free and finally managed to get inside the car and close the door against him. His companions were laughing.
