Title (Dublin Core)

She was watching another racist incident on a Vancouver bus. And then, something different happened

Description (Dublin Core)

"As she boarded a bus Monday after a morning of classes at a downtown Vancouver campus, Tina Hoang was pleased to see that most passengers were physically distancing.

"She sat down at an empty area near the middle of the bus.

"But soon, a white man got on board and walked by a row of people who were all wearing masks, who all happened to be people of colour.

"'Jesus Christ! Everyone is wearing a mask. It’s the f---ing Chinese virus,' he ranted loudly.

"Hoang, who is 21, said she snapped at that moment after enduring months of dirty looks from people in Vancouver, which she attributed to scapegoating for the coronavirus outbreak."
