R.I.P. Akai Gurley

akai-gurley

Chinese-Americans have been rallying in support of Peter Liang, a former NYPD cop who was recently convicted of killing Akai Gurley, an unarmed black man, in 2014.

As an individual of Chinese descent, I feel duty-bound to make it clear that I DO NOT support Peter Liang, and that I think the movement in his defense is anti-black.

All Chinese people of honor and integrity should align themselves in solidarity with black people and against the police, as they did briefly in Oakland in 2014:
