Surge in Asian Hate Crimes? More Bogeyman Than Fact


By Lee Ann O’Neal | 25 March 2021

REAL CLEAR POLITICS — Before the next of kin were even notified in the horrific shootings last week at three Atlanta-area massage parlors, the narrative was established: The fact that six of the eight victims were Asian women provides the proof that a “surge in hate crimes” against Asian Americans has bubbled up in the U.S. in response to the coronavirus pandemic. That fits neatly with the view of some Americans that our society, at its heart, is racist.

For contrast, consider the mass shooting this week in Boulder, Colo., in which the suspect is Syrian American. Even though all the victims were of the same race, no one assumes without proof that he was acting out of racial animosity because, of course, they were white. In Atlanta, the shooter killed two white people and injured a Latino. But the killings must still be motivated by anti-Asian hatred, right?

“Racially motivated violence must be called out for exactly what it is — and we must stop making excuses or rebranding it as economic anxiety or sexual addiction,” Rep. Marilyn Strickland (pictured) told members of the House a day after the Atlanta shootings. In a CNN interview, Strickland, whose heritage is both African American and Korean American, called the incident a racially motivated hate crime. […]

8 Comments on Surge in Asian Hate Crimes? More Bogeyman Than Fact

  1. Racially motivated violence must be called out for exactly what it is — and we must stop making excuses or rebranding it as economic anxiety or sexual addiction,” Rep. Marilyn Strickland (pictured) told members of the House a day after the Atlanta shootings.

    OK — using FBI/UCR crime data from 2018, and considering relative population fractions (i.e. there are roughly 5x as many Whites as Blacks in the US), the per capita rate of black on white violent crime is 45x the rate of white on black (link) — how much of that crime is racially motivated? — no one knows because no one asks — even when there is an indication that a black on white violent crime was racially motivated, e.g. by what’s reported in the media, this is usually immediately discounted by both the cops and the DA, and typically that’s the last you hear of it — I’ve seen this time and time again — but when it’s a relatively uncommon instance of a white on black crime, the media very often seizes on and plays up the racial ‘hate’ angle — everyone has seen this — that kind of blatant bias motivates fake ‘hate crimes’ like the one staged by Jussie Smollett.

    “Syrian American” — “African American” — “Korean American”

    LOL — America: death by hyphenation.

    • I looked up FBI statistics on hate crimes and found that negroes commit hate crimes at a rate almost twice of their proportion of the population. Whites do so at a rate slightly lower than their proportion of the population. And the White numbers include hispanics. So I’m waiting for anti-racist activists to decriminalize hate crimes since negroes are disproportionately impacted.

    • It might have a more unifying effect if the hyphenated labels were reversed i.e. American-Euro, American-African, American -Indian, American-Asian, American-Jew, etc. The country’s name should have primacy over the racial designation but that’s probably ‘too white’ of an idea.

      • >It might have a more unifying effect if the hyphenated labels were reversed

        From my side that’s a hard ‘No’.

        Do an honest demographic assessment of Blacks: very high crime, very low educational achievement makes them, as a group, a huge national burden on Whites (link) — once you sees this/are no longer afraid to draw this obvious conclusion from the facts, why would it matter whether they’re called ‘African-Americans’ or ‘American-Africans’? — I don’t want to share a country with them, period — especially a country with a coercive tax system that yokes me to them and their dysfunction, when their dysfunction is traceable largely to their genetic makeup, i.e. race is far more than skin color.

        Whites do not need any other groups to build and maintain high-functioning societies.

        Put aside the dumb/dishonest ‘melting pot’ pablum and take an honest look at what being multi-ethnic has done and is doing to America — ‘diversity’ is a civilization level fraud.

        Enough is enough.

        • Simply a suggestion that the primary label ‘American’ may infuse nonwhites with a little more agreement as to the transcendent ‘American Way’- and yes- the judeo/communists of the 20th century turned ‘Way’ into ‘Dream’ thus degrading spirit into material that is fought over today through all manner of programmed antIChrist pharmakei among the wrongfully mixed races.

          • I think you mean well and did understand my comments here (I’ve made similar ones under other articles) — the situation is intractable and I’m not interested in a change of nomenclature.

            The issue is very serous — Whites are on track to become a minority in the US fairly soon — non-whites have been taught/indoctrinated to believe that Whites are racist, and that what Whites have is the result of some unearned privilege as well as the cruel exploitation of non-whites via an ‘institutionally racist’ system — the rhetoric demonizing Whites is getting worse all the time — deeds will follow this rhetoric; I have no doubt about that.

            >the wrongfully mixed races

            Yes, wrong and unworkable.

            Suspect Arrested In Road Rage Killing Of Mom Shot To Death On I-95 Anniversary Trip

            White mother of 6 shot to death on a NC highway — it’s no surprise that the black suspect has a lengthy criminal history:

            Dejwyan R. Floyd, of Lumberton, North Carolina, was arrested early Thursday morning around 12:38 a.m. in connection with the death of 47-year-old Julie Eberly. The 29-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder and discharging a weapon into an occupied property, … Floyd, whose first court appearance is scheduled for Thursday, has a prior criminal record that includes convictions for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, according to WBTW. He was released from prison in 2018 after serving three years behind bars.

            How many Americans will hear of this crime/black man named Floyd? — how many national media outlets will report it? — how many local media outlets will carry a wire report about it?

            Crime data shows this kind of black on white violence happens on a large scale across the US, but the media suppresses the stories.

      • >that’s probably ‘too white’ of an idea

        In particular, don’t fall for dumb pablum like this (link):

        America is not divided by race, color, gender, or sexual orientation. America is divided into wise people and fools. And fools divide themselves by race, color, gender, or sexual orientation.

        This kind of shit is aimed only at Whites — they are the only group not allowed to organize to protect their own interests — and that is not going to change.

        The rest of it (gender, sexual orientation) can be characterized as promoting tolerance — everyone should ask: what are we supposed to tolerate? — and where has being tolerant gotten us so far? — being tolerant of non-white immigration and multiculturalism led to ‘white supremacy’ and ‘institutional racism’ — being tolerant of homosexuality led to the abomination of gay marriage, which quickly led to transsexualism, drag queen story hour, and now rhetoric suggesting lowering the age of consent or even tolerating pedophilia — etc.

        Believe it or not some things should simply not be tolerated, and there are good reasons why they were not tolerated earlier.
