My first racist attack occurred at a Vegas Victims Relief Fundraiser

Four days after the tragic event that took the lives of 58 people in Las Vegas a month ago, I went with some friends to one of my favorite local bars.

As many businesses did in the aftermath of the shooting, this bar hosted a Vegas Victims Relief Fundraiser with several local musicians performing. All of that night’s proceeds were donated to the victims and their families.

A shared night out was something that many of desperately needed that week, and the bar we went to, located on the revitalized Main Street, is one of the best local joints in the Valley. Since they opened a few years ago, I’ve only had good experiences. It’s everything you can ask for in a neighborhood bar, from the owners and staff to the music, ambiance, crowd and regulars. It’s truly a must for everyone near downtown Vegas and worth a visit from anyone in town.

I certainly didn’t expect that on that night — in that bar — after that event — I was going to experience the worst racist interaction I’ve had since moving to the United States 7 years ago.
