Automatic TRANSCRIPT

So we set a couple times cultural insensitivity at least what are some examples of that how is there you know if this were citibank i think the guys would be and they were charge i think the guys would have a lot a less rough time navigating the legal system well yeah if if it were citibank would still be in discovery no one mean there would be nothing would have happened by now but yeah i mean i think one of the journalists who covered the story in the film says that if it had been a blackowned bank in they had chained black employees together and paraded down the hall way that that would have been looked at very differently i think that for the chinese and their history in this country in their community they looked at that as being incredibly racist yet but then when you get into the trial itself it's hard to know to what degree it was calculated versus just insensitive right but the prosecution's case rested very much on trying to create this impression that in chinatown there are nothing but fraudulent loan officer as an mortgage bars that people are are all trying to escape by and work the system that's a denigration a constant denigration of asianamericans shifty and oh paik in their dealings and i think that there's even something to it that we call the bank abac has but of course its name is based on the chinese characters and a jury that doesn't read chinese characters would resolve the jury right now now the west there wasn't an asian on the jersey right there wasn't an age on jerry you put up the name of the bank in the chinese characters it just seems far and it seems like we'll who knows what's going on there right and and what the da's office did in trying the cases they they definitely tried to conflate the fraud with questions about paying taxes yes right and it is true as the defence lawyer says in the film it is true that in immigrant communities like this community where people are gaining a foothold in this country where they're mostly working in cash economy in it's been historically true it's not just true the chinese is at the payment of taxes is something that is not fully done.
