Many in the Indian-American community are denouncing the killing of an Indian engineer in Olathe, Kansas, last week. The shooting of Srinivas Kuchibhotla is now being investigated as a hate crime.

President Trump condemned the attack when he opened his address to Congress on Tuesday night. The president had been criticized from some civil rights groups who accused him of being slow in denouncing it.

We speak with the writer of an essay about how the shooting shook him all the way in Boston, and what everyone can learn from it.
