One night in October 2015, Asma Jama was having dinner with her family at an Applebee's restaurant in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. They were speaking in their native language of Swahili, when another customer attacked them, saying they should speak English. The customer then smashed a beer mug in Jama's face.
