Insurance company owner Lê Hoàng Nguyên, who is Vietnamese American, paid for a billboard that read “Black Lives Matter” and “Stop Racism” in English and Vietnamese.
It supports the simple idea of the Black Lives Matter movement to stop racism and injustice for all,” he said.
“The Asian American community needs to not only stand up against that, but they need to stand up for other communities.
Because if Black lives don’t matter, why would Asian lives matter?” Wu said.
Brandon Mack, 36, an organizer of Black Lives Matter’s Houston chapter, said people of different generations showing up in solidarity and in support of Black lives was an important step.
