We're all in this together. A Vincent Chin Reader I put together for NBC Asian America last year

Who Is Vincent Chin? The History and Relevance of a 1982 Killing

"Racists are not very smart. Don’t count on them being able to tell any of us apart (not that that would make it ok). Don’t assume that you or your children or your elders are safe because you are not from that other group."

An interview I did with Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles re Vincent Chin case last year that resonates painfully today

Who Is Vincent Chin? The History and Relevance of a 1982 Killing - NBC News

A Vincent Chin Syllabus of sorts--a collection of films and articles to learn more, at NBC Asian America:
“People forget. It’s been a long time ago. A whole generation has passed. It’s ancient history to them," Zia said.

“The Vincent Chin case forced Asian Americans into the civil rights discourse,” Roland Hwang co-founder and former president of American Citizens for Justice told NBC News. “The Vincent Chin case transformed a biracial discussion on race relations to be a multiracial one. So the Vincent Chin case, along with other cases, each serve as a wakeup call to address anti-Asian bias and racial intolerance.”
