Listen ‘We need to help them’: Asian Americans demand justice for George FloydA group with Hmong Americans for Black Lives marches into a rally for George Floyd at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul May 31.

Standing in front of a group of protesters at a Hmong for Black Lives rally, Youa Vang had a simple request from her Asian American community — demand justice for George Floyd.

Yet, they remembered how the black community showed up for them, fighting through the emotional turmoil.

Bo Thao-Urabe, executive director of the Coalition of Asian American Leaders, said that whether Thao is Hmong is not the point.

They said while Asian Americans do experience racism, there is a time and place to share those experiences.
