Racial Attack on Pramila Jayapal: Indian-American lawmaker Pramila Jayapal is receiving offensive and hate messages on the phone. He has tweeted an audio message. Those parts of the audio have been edited in which obscene and indecent things have been said. In the audio, a man is threatening Jaipal to face dire consequences and return to his native India.
Pramila Jayapal wrote in the tweet, “Generally political figures do not tell the bad behavior meted to them. I chose to do so because we cannot accept violence as the new normal. We also cannot accept the racism and sexism that is embedded in and encourages this violence.
Earlier in the summer, a man had shown a pistol to Jaipal. In another tweet, Jaipal wrote, “A man full of racism and anger showed up at my house with a loaded gun. I am sharing this because we cannot remain silent in the face of increasing violence. These are not isolated incidents.
