New York Times, October 2022
On April 29, 2021, around 3:45 p.m., Carl Chan, the president of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce in Oakland, Calif., was walking along Eighth Street not far from the Chinatown district when a stranger struck him on the back of the head. The blow sent Mr. Chan, a slight man in his early 60s, tumbling onto the pavement. His glasses flew off his face and his left knee, which broke his fall, was scraped and bleeding. According to Mr. Chan, the stranger shouted an anti-Asian racial slur before ambushing him.
