GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Who Used ‘Yellow’ to Refer to Asian Virginians in Interview Calls Out Dems
Glenn Youngkin, the Republican gubernatorial candidate for Virginia, used the word “yellow” to describe Asian people in an interview that recently resurfaced with podcast host Chris Arps back in April.
Vying for Asian votes: Speaking on the “Water Cooler Politics” podcast, Youngkin said, “I so look forward to being governor . . . so that all Virginians — Black Virginians, Brown Virginians, White Virginians, yellow Virginians — can all achieve their aspirations and their ambitions.”
Jon Nguamsanith is a Laotian-American who manages a men’s grooming shop in Reston Town Center, Virginia. Recently he was victim of a racist by a white man claiming to be a Trump supporter.
Nguamsanith uploaded the video of the incident on Facebook, which has since gone viral. At one point in the video, the man asks him if he is a legal citizen in this country.
