‘You don’t belong in this country’: White man yells at Sikh-American woman in NY

Hate crime
A Sikh-American woman was allegedly harassed on a subway train in New York after a white man mistook her for a West Asian and allegedly shouted “you don’t belong in this country” --- the latest in a series of hate crimes against people of South-Asian origin.
Rajpreet Heir was taking the subway train to a friend’s birthday party in Manhattan this month when the white man began shouting at her, according to a report in the New York Times.
Heir recounted the ordeal in a video for a Times section called ‘This Week in Hate’, which highlights hate crimes and harassment around the country since the election of President Donald Trump.
Heir said she was looking at her phone when the white man shouted at her saying, “Do you even know what a Marine looks like? Do you know what they have to see? What they do for this country? Because of people like you.”
