  • When I left the train, I thought I wouldn't make it.

  • Noel Quintana's case in New York is just one of almost 4000 anti Asian hate incidents reported in the US over the past year In cities like San Francisco.

  • A large Asian American population hasn't stopped the harassment, either.

  • Those are three main task.

  • We don't actually get into physical fights with anybody.

  • This is our weapon right here.
