There have been nationwide demonstrations against Asian hate crimes in recent weeks. And these demonstrations, taking place in America during Black History Month, strain the relationship between blacks and Asians.
Now, a new video that has gone viral could shed even more light on the bad blood between many in the Asian and black communities.
The video, allegedly recorded in New Orleans, shows an Asian shopkeeper brutalizing a black woman. The shopkeeper can be seen in front of the camera, giving the woman a hard squeeze and then kicking her.
But he’s not finished yet. The video shows the Asian man chasing after the woman as she retreats to her car to confront her again, possibly with more violence.
But he made a HUGE mistake. You see, New Orleans has very citizen-friendly gun carrying laws and the most liberal use of self-defense laws in the country.
The woman withdrew to her car, where she pulled out a gun and appeared to have fired a shot in the direction of the attacking shopkeeper.
Fortunately for everyone, the shot didn’t seem to hit the Asian man. But it kept him from his obvious attack and could make him think twice before attempting to brutalize anyone moving forward.
