Asian hate crimes rose from 49 crimes in 2019 to 122 in 2020, an increase of 149 percent.
Verbal harassment and shunning — the deliberate avoidance of Asian Americans — made up the two largest proportions of the total incidents reported. Physical assaults comprised 11 percent of the incidents.
Janelle Wong, a professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, released analysis last week that drew on previously published studies on anti-Asian bias. She found official crime statistics and other studies revealed more than three-quarters of offenders of anti-Asian hate crimes and incidents, from both before and during the pandemic, have been white, contrary to many of the images circulating online.
So the OP and the media are upset about a handful of incidents, the majority of which are not even physical violence.
Yet they do not start threads about the one group that has consistently been the most targetted group of hate crimes (African Americans) every single year. Literally over 50 percent of all Americas hate crimes are against black people. But it would appear that some posters feel they deserve it.
Yes the media has convinced you that Asians are being attacked everywhere constat tly when the majority are nonviolent and the numbers are so low it's ridiculous, but I am willing to bet that these same folks don't care about the thousands of anti lack hate crimes merely because of the disdain for black people
The vast majority of which are not part of the violent culture that you think they are associated with.
Black people commit hate crimes at large rate as well, let's not forget that. My family had 3 instances of hate crimes... Real ones committed against them in the southern USA, yet none of my family has reciprocated. Yet white people will laugh it off and say stop living in the past when 2 of them would still be alive today and 1 still is.
