Hi Lea,

Thank you for your response to my questions.

Biases lead to different interpretations and judgments of people’s expressions and actions. Being judgmental is similar to putting words in other’s mouth.

I have followed through all the comments in response to two recent articles posted on Huffington Post written by Annie Tan and Steph Yin, respectively. The major difference between the two major sides (Supporting vs. Against the recent protest) is their focuses.

What I saw was that the “against” side was limiting the focus on the death of Gurley in addition to the wrongful act of Liang; while the “supporting” side kept explaining the intent of the protest - they agree Peter should be held accountable, but the treatments from the prosecution through the sentencing should be fair and equal…which is justice, instead of selective justice.

No one is happy to hear any deaths, regardless of color, caused by accidents or killings. No one said a black’s innocent death is deserving. My personal view to the protest is what the Chinese/Asian American communities are seeing the big picture of our racial status in this country, and fighting for protection of our future generations. And I believe it’s similar to Steve Huang’s comments.

We judge others on our own standards. But, legal cases are judged by law. Therefore, it has to be consistent and fair. For anything else, it requires the law makers and people to improve the fairness and secure the equality of humans regardless of colors.

Regards,

Jay
