A viral video posted to TikTok and then Instagram shows a white woman in Charlotte yelling racial slurs at an Asian-American Uber driver in a gas station parking lot at East Woodlawn and Park ro. Events that led up to the recorded incident are unclear, as Queen City Nerve has not been able to reach Outhay Chokbengboun, the identified Uber driver, and the woman in the video has not responded to requests for comment.

North Carolina Asian Americans Together NCAAT is disappointed and frustrated that those of us and our allies speaking out in opposition of Jim Crow-esque anti-voting legislation were not given ample time to give our public statements during the Senate Redistricting Committee meeting Wednesday morning. The procedure in handling public comments during this meeting is reflective of the impact of these voter suppression bills in silencing communities of color.
