Asian-American Advocates Join #IStandWithAhmed - NBC News

My article for NBC News Asian America: More support from the AAPI community for Ahmed Mohamed #IStandWithAhmed
"Ahmed and his talents have become victims of a culture of suspicion that we must extinguish," Representative Judy Chu, Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, said as she called for an apology and called out the costs of Islamophobia, racism, and racial profiling. "Now, because of these racist and mistrustful responses from authority figures, students like Ahmed may be too afraid to engage and further express their creativity at school. This right here is where racial profiling and Islamophobic rhetoric lead us. What a tragedy."
