June 19, 1982: Vincent Chin, a 27 year-old Chinese American, was beaten to death with a baseball bat in Detroit by two Caucasian men. The perpetrators were Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz, who blamed Japanese carmakers for Detroit's problems in the auto industry. For this brutal hate crime, Nitz and Ebens were sentenced to three years of probation and $3,780 in fines and court fees but never served one day in prison.
Vincent Chin is like the asian Rodney King. RIP.
