This is part of a long history of violence against Chinese people by white US Americans. Chinese people basically built the economies of the west coast by doing horrifically dangerous jobs such as blasting railroad tunnels through the Sierras and Rockies. As soon as whites had cushy train cars to ride west in, they flooded the west coast and started screeching that Asians were taking taking their jobs, raping their women, and doing opium. Segregated unions grabbed the best jobs for whites, while white supremacist pogroms such as this one forced Chinese workers out.
