I just lost all respect for the writer after this,
“Like Akai Gurley, my uncle Vincent was killed because he was a person of color.”
Akai Gurley was shot unintentionally by Liang who hadn’t even seen him since he was on a different floor. Gurley was not killed because of his “color”. He was killed due to an accident (ricocheting bullet). To compare him to the murder of Chin is truly disgraceful.
