In The Margins

May 13, 2021

Tune in to this featured replay from Emil Amok’s Takeout podcast on the story of Angelo Quinto, a 30-year-old Filipino American who died after an incident with the police in Antioch, California. Diverse blogger Emil Guillermo has been sounding the alarm on this incident since February 2021 and solely dedicates this episode to telling the underreported story of Angelo Quinto and the current quest for justice over his wrongful death. Not only does he break down the details of the case, but Emil is also joined by San Francisco State University professor Dan Gonzales to examine the deeper issues of anti-Asian violence and the vigilance required to combat it.

“I think it shows that when you say Asian American, you mean a big broad community and I think we all, as individual communities, have to look at this and say, “We're stronger when we're together. Let's work together. Let's fight this.” I think that's the way out with the anti-Asian hate.”
