‘The Real’s’ Jeannie Mai On Elderly Asian Man Attacked On Viral Video – ‘Racism Does NOT End Racism’

​ ​ ​ ​

“The Real’s” Jeannie Mai spoke out against racism after an elderly Asian man in San Francisco was attacked. Footage from attack made its way online and has gone viral. See Jeannie’s passionate speech about the racially charged attack and more inside…

A video of an Asian man being attacked in San Francisco has gone viral and “The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai is speaking out about it. Over the weekend, an elderly Asian man was captured on video being attacked as bystanders looked on and hurled racial slurs.

According to police, the man was collecting recyclables in the city before he was robbed and attacked. Police are now investigating the incident as a hate crime.

Peep the clip below - WARNING - It's hard to watch:

 

It's reported there were security guards outside who witnessed the attack and did nothing. The security company issued a statement about it, writing, "Our Investigation's Unit is currently investigating this matter," Daniel Francom, the president and CEO of that security company, Critical Intervention Patrol, said. "While this investigation is underway, it would be premature and unfair to make any statements at this time. We assure you and the community that once our investigation is completed, we will give further details with transparency regarding this incident."

“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai (who has a Vietnamese mother and a Chinese father) was pissed after seeing the video and aired out her frustrations on a recent episode of the daytime talk show.

 

 

”I’m not talking about racism against Asians. This is racism…period,” she said during the show. “This is minorities against minorities. We all know what it’s like to struggle living in our skin, why are we doing this to each other? Racism is not going to end racism,” she said.

Jeannie encouraged people to talk to their friends from all races about racism. She also asked viewers to send her any information they have about the attack, so she could get the ball rolling on an investigation against the people who attacked the man.

Minorities cannot be against minorities. Racism does NOT end racism. Today we spoke about the viral video of an Asian man being attacked in San Francisco, who has yet to be identified. If anyone has ANY information as to who this victim, PLS DM me so that I can directly support this man. (Video in IG story.) You can also text ANY info to the SFPD tipline at TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. As always, tips can be made anonymously. And if ever you are in the position to witness something so grotesque, PLEASE SPEAK UP. **UPDATE** Victim has been found. He is OK. And is thankful for the kind neighbors around the same area he was attacked. See IG story for more.

Hours after putting her post, she hopped on IG Stories to announce the victim had been found.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced a Community Unity and Healing rally that will go down today on the same street the man was attacked:

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the time of this post, no arrests have been made.  This is really sick and disgusting, and the people in the video need to be prosecuted for this uncalled for behavior. This man was trying to collect cans to make some extra money for his family and, apparently, can't even do that in peace.
