posted by Randall

Pvt Danny ChenThe city of New York Saturday officially renamed part of a street in honor of a Chinese American soldier who was a victim of racial hazing, reports NY1.

Private Danny Chen committed suicide in 2011 after he became a victim of military hazing while in Afghanistan.

His family hopes the designation of Private Danny Chen Way will educate the public about racism.

“The location here in Chinatown, a lot of people walk by here and I hope when they walk by they will question what it is, what it represents, and they will find out more and they’ll know that this event happened.”said Banny Chen, Danny’s cousin.

You can watch part of today’s ceremony on NY1.
