When the driver saw me and my colleague (who is South Asian) he said, ‘You all think you run the world. You all don’t run s—.’ His friend told him to calm down and leave it alone. As the driver pulled away, he shouted, ‘Go back to your own country!’ ” Priyanka was visibly not happy about the incident and supported Ramin. She said, “Asking me about my thoughts on what happened to Ramin is a sign of where we stand today, and the work we have to continue to do.”

Priyanka feels people like Ramin should not be subjected to such racism as it is because of people like him that has made America the country it is today. The dreams and aspirations of immigrants have uplifted the country into a superpower. She said, “So my question in response is – who belongs here, and who doesn’t? Isn’t America a melting pot of all people from all backgrounds? This country was built on the back of immigrants in search of the American dream, a life of freedom, opportunity, and a safe place not only for themselves but for their families.”
