I disagree with you about it being in response to the vice president because they don’t perceive her as Asian per se, but as a black woman. However she is.

I think this is just in response to all the shit that Trump had flying all over the place. The hateful shit.

Several attacks (some fatal) of Asian men occured in the past few days in NYC, and there have been many attacks in SF and elsewhere.
