Judge in Kyle Rittenhouse trial lands himself into trouble with inappropriate Asian food joke


The judge presiding over the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse has left everyone confused in the courtroom on Thursday after an off Color joke.

The Kenosha County circuit court judge, Bruce Schroeder seems to be touching on the supply chain backlogs caused by congestion problems in California ports.

“I hope the Asian food isn’t coming… isn’t on one of those boats from Long Beach Harbor,” he said

His comments has not be taken lightly by many who tag it as Anti-Asian and a way to blame Asians for large scale events.

Reacting to the Judge’s statement, John Yang, who is the president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice-AAJC said:

“It harms our community and puts us in the crosshairs of micro aggressions as well as actual physical violence,His remarks were meant to denigrate or minimize Asian Americans and “any Asian American that sees or hears his statement will understand that he is making fun of or mocking our community.”

“This is a great illustration of how Asian Americans are not immune from racial bias and discrimination in our criminal justice system,” Yang said.

The highly respected judge’s comments comes just a week after a juror was dismissed over a joke about the police Shooting of Jacob Blake, which prosecutors said it suggested “some sort of racial bias.”

Others who react to the Judge’s Statement brand it as a “racist’.
