Another attack in NY

65-year-old Asian American woman was walking to church in the morning when suspect assaulted her and said “f*** you, you don’t belong here.” Happened in broad daylight.

Building security guard not only failed to render her aid, he closed door on helpless victim.

Video is linked below.

That’s f’d up. 

It’s either targeted hate crime or like homeless guy in Ventura that stabbed the dad in the restaurant for no reason. 

The true hate crime, ImHO, is the building security guard just closing the door.  The criminal already had walked away, you don’t even check AFTER it happens?  Depraved heart.

Yahoo News: New York Deploys Undercover Asian Agents to Combat Hate Crimes

In an effort to end the violence against Asian Americans, New York City will deploy officers to the streets in plain clothes starting this weekend. The plan, part of a two-pronged approach announced on Thursday, will use an all-Asian team of police officers, according to New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.

Aside from deploying an undercover force, New York police are also ramping up outreach efforts. Community forums were recently held in Chinatown, Flushing and Sunset Park. There is also a direct email to hate crimes task force investigators at asianhctf@nypd.org who can assist with "non-emergency concerns."

Man arrested in hate crime assault on Asian woman was out on parole for killing his mom
Quote
Brandon Elliot was arrested early Wednesday. The NYPD has recommended charges of two counts of assault as a hate crime, attempted assault as a hate crime and other charges.

Elliot served 17 years in state prison for stabbing his mother to death, the NYPD told CNN. He was released on lifetime parole in November 2019.

Some friends went to a range out in Rancho and pinged me their web page.  Wow.  I have mixed feelings about using pictures of elderly Asian victims of violence for their promotions.  But I won't fault them for providing free self defense seminars.  Next one is on 4/18 with Chinese and Korean translators avail.

The Boston Globe just publish a survey with interesting results.

-80% of Asian Americans report experiencing discrimination

-37% of white Americans say they were unaware of increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans

-46% of Republicans report being unaware of growing anti-Asian hate, compared to 22% of Democrats

-Fewer than 1 in 4 Asian Americans feel respected in the US

-Close to 1 in 4 white Americans do not believe that anti-Asian racism is a problem that needs to be addressed

-20% of Americans believe Asian Americans are more loyal to their countries of origin than the US

The cherry on top seems to be this - The most common answer was "don't know" when asked who's a prominent Asian American. The second most-common answer was Jackie Chan (11%), followed by Bruce Lee (9%).

These are very favorable results presented by the globe in a negative way to make things seem much worse.  You can simply take the converse result of each stat and it paints a far different picture:

-Over 3 in 4 white Americans believe that anti-Asian racism is a problem.

-80% percent of Americans believe AA's are more loyal to the US than their countries of origin.

-54% of Republicans and 78% of Democrats are aware of anti-Asian hate.

-63% of white Americans are aware of an increase in hate crimes against AA's.

Concerning who is a prominent AA, the most common answer was "don't know", but that was presumably a small percent of responses and not surprising given the open-ended nature of the survey question.  Answers like "other" or "I don't know" will always have a higher chance of being the top answer in an open-ended survey question like this, because of the unlimited number of possible responses.

So here we have another example of interpreting the motives and beliefs of others as being racist, even when the evidence does not back that up and clearly shows the opposite.

I think it's obvious that the Boston Globe's spin on this is in support of their left leaning narrative. We're in agreement here.

But I disagree with this being "very favorable results" , certainly not as an Asian American.

Do you honestly expect AAs to view "54% of Republicans are aware of anti-Asian hate" as very favorable results? 

This a public safety issue that's also deeply personal to AAs.

84% of voters, including 77% of Republicans, support requiring all gun purchasers to go through a background check. That is what I'd call a "very favorable result"

I think the #1 takeaway from this poll should be that 80% of Asian Americans feel a lack of respect and a sense of discrimination from fellow Americans.

I noticed the glaring omission from your post, but I appreciate the fact that you didn't try to spin this.

About naming a prominent AA 42% said "don't know". It's not a small percent.

Even if you ignore that, and skip to the #2 most common answer - Jackie Chan. He's not even American.

And Bruce Lee has been dead for almost 50 years!

Talk about a slap in the face to AAs.
