Xenophobic comments rampant online after UBC assault

Adam Casey, the UBC student who came to the rescue of a fellow student who was being assaulted, said he doesn’t consider himself a hero and doesn’t want to be included in racist discussions of the assault, Global News reported.

“I believe that some people are already disposed towards bias, bigotry, xenophobia and hate, and that when they see an event like this connected with a Middle Eastern sounding name, it feeds right into their bias,” Casey said.
