’People question my patriotism,’ says Asian descent official, shows war scars

On Tuesday night amidst a meeting, a Board of Trustees member of West Chester Township, Lee Wong, stripped off his shirt to show his scars from war. This move came in response to the rising Asian hate crimes in the US. ’I’m getting a little hot on this issue here. People question my patriotism, that I don’t look American enough,’ Wong said. He revealed his scars as a ’proof’ of his patriotism.

I usually don't go around looking at people and wondering if they are American or not. I also empathize with anyone that has been the ire of hate. Asians, black, Hispanic, white..all people should be free from discrimination in America. Pretty sure we have laws against it. Shouldn't even have to be a protest or town hall meeting about it. But start enforcing the laws and it might stop or at least subside.

I appreciate his service and sacrifice for this country. What bothers me about this story is that it's not backed by evidence. I'm not refuting the fact that he's received racial insults in his life since it's a common experience, everywhere in the world mind you, but he didn't cite any specific cases leading up to this particular display.
