The neighborhood where Monday's attack occurred, Hell's Kitchen, is predominantly white, with an Asian population of less than 20%, according to city demographic data.

Why mention that the neighborhood is predominantly white when the attacker (at least to me) doesn't appear to fit into that demographic?

Poor people fight against each other, regardless of their race.

Extremely disturbing video. That woman is lucky to be alive, and the lack of concern by the people standing 10 feet away makes it all the worse.

This person needs to be imprisoned for a long time for this race motivated hate crime. Find him.

The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for the coronavirus and former President Donald Trump’s use of racially charged terms like “Chinese virus.”

What link?

MSM just out right lying, but what’s new. As I posted recently, the FBI stats say it is not white folks doing the attacking and the Atlanta shooting was not race based but massage parlor based and for those who don’t know, most massage parlors in the US are run by Asians. Lots of South Koran women are tricked by other South Koreans to enter the US under false pretenses and the poor young ladies end up at massage parlors. There’s documentary’s to see if you’re not convinced.

Asians are on average the richest demographics in the US. Do you have some information that this was a poor person attacked?

Hell's Kitchen, is predominantly white

Is the implication that a black person should not have been in the white neighborhood?

People of all races can be misguided or bigoted. Which is why the narrative that focuses on white racism is a distortion of the facts and leads to a failure to address the real causes of these crimes. The constant reiteration of “racial differences” is deep;y unhelpful in this area.

19 ( +24 / -5 )

According to the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, there were 182,230 violent incidents targeting Asians in 2018 (the latest year to include Asian data). 27.5% of the perpetrators were Black, 24.1% were other Asians, 24.1% were White, 14.4% were Other, 7.0% were Hispanic, and 2.9% involved multiple offenders of various races.

Asians were the offenders in less than 0.1% of violent incidents targeting Blacks and 2.2% targeting Whites.

Isn't failure to provide assistance a crime in NYC? If not, it needs to be.

All the bystanders need to be charged a accessories to the crime.

Didn't their mothers and father teach to come to the aid of people in trouble?

11 ( +15 / -4 )

Well this busts the myth that Black people can not be racist. A racist can be anyone regardless of color.

Racism from anyone is wrong and needs to be punished appropriately. The reality is everyone is different, just look in the mirror and you see a unique face. Everyone is unique and has identical rights to you. Being different is no crime, it is the norm.

If so, please provide some links to sites being truthful, or at least supporting your perspective.

Despicable individual who needs to be jailed for life (I hope for worse to be honest).

he shouted anti-Asian slurs and told her, “you don't belong here.”

She belongs there more than you, ugly-faced scum.

Anti-Asian discrimination, racism and violence is as American as mom's apple pie, from the 1860s to the present day. It's disappointing to see New Yorkers not coming to the woman's aid though, one would expect better.

You do not have an affirmative duty to intervene in a crime in most jurisdictions. In fact, only 13 jurisdictions have laws requiring intervention. The policy behind not requiring intervention is driven by many factors such as not escalating the situation or not requiring a bystander to put themselves in harms way.

Apparently not. I, for one, am the guy running towards the altercation/incident to render aid to victims or stop attacks. I think this comes from an abundance of empathy.

Fat, old, stiff and rusty, and I’m just not going to let this pass if I witness it. My father wouldn’t have, nor would my 5’4” (if he stood up REALLY tall) grandfather.

That would be relevant if you would have mentioned that those incidents involved Asians owning business in Black neighborhoods like the George Floyd incident!

However, the pandemic started in 2020, so your data is two years too late and irrelevant!

Thanks for the attempted misdirect!

"The neighborhood where Monday's attack occurred, Hell's Kitchen, is predominantly white, with an Asian population of less than 20%, according to city demographic data."

Yet, the assailant seems to be non-caucasian. Doesn't quite fit the narrative, does it.

11 ( +17 / -6 )

The attack was brutal and hard to watch, the failure of the nearby people to help the victim is pathetic.

This man needs to be put away for a long time.

Sad, the media won’t touch this with a 10 foot pole, but a lot of these attacks are perpetrated by Blacks and it goes against their narrative that Asian attacks are being done by conservative whites only. This is a topic we all need to be clear and honest about, this is not a conservative or white or Trump issue, this is an American issue.

12 ( +22 / -10 )

The media has covered this attack well, so anyone who claims they are not either cannot read or is lying.

Racially motivated attacks by any race and against any race are to be condemned and punished !!!!

The media has to keep holding on to this is another non-white, non-red hat wearing, "non-Republican" demographic person commits anti-Asian hate.

Anti-Asian Hate Crime Crosses Racial and Ethnic Lines

https://www.voanews.com/usa/anti-asian-hate-crime-crosses-racial-and-ethnic-lines

Several factors may explain the relatively high number of non-white arrests in New York City, Levin said. One is the city’s racially diverse urban population. Proportionally, the city has 57% more Latinos, 81% more African-Americans, 139% more Asians and about 50% fewer whites than the nation as a whole, with whites often living in less racially mixed neighborhoods, according to Levin.

Here is the interesting part:

What’s more, African Americans are more frequently arrested than whites, and many whites involved in anti-Asian hate crimes may be at large, he noted.

So, POC are more likely to be arrested for crimes that whites get a pass.

African-Americans and Latinos are not mostly going on shooting sprees to shoot and kill Asians, women, POC, Muslims, or liberals.

Conservative whites have a monopoly on that in the United States.

-12 ( +4 / -16 )

LOL.................proof please not your opinion!

Always. Nothing funny about it. This guy and then the Black guy on the subway the other day that smashed the guys face in was Asian.

There was a Black man in NYC that attacked a woman that was attending an anti-Asian violence.

Again it’s not a white only conservative Groups attacking Asians.

All I see is a lack of sympathy on your part for the victim and continuous excuses made for the assailant because of their skin color. Then you go on to blame a whole other skin color for the crime.

Whites, Latinos, and blacks have attacked Asians with hate crimes. The numbers of attackers are also in that order, white Latino, black.

Racism in America remains a serious problem in most places,

Wrong, blacks make up the majority of attacks. Barely, but they do. In reality, it's an even split among black, other Asians, and whites who are committing attacks on Asians in the US.

I guess this crime doesn't fit the whole "white supremacist" narrative. Nor does the murder of an Asian Uber Eats driver in Washington the other day by two African American girls.

Sadly there is a history of friction between Asians and African-Americans in urban areas. This dates back decades, remember the riots over the beating of Rodney King in the early 90s? Asian businesses were targeted by the mob.

No one has argued that this was a heinous unnecessary crime. No one has argued that this is the victim's fault.

All I see is your attempt to deflect because we are refuting lies with facts!

Attilathehungry: I guess this crime doesn't fit the whole "white supremacist" narrative. 

The "white supremacists" narrative is for white supremacists. Plenty of them in your group to choose from. Some of them, I hear, are nice people.

It was a felony murder, which is different than murder. You are trying to paint this as a straight murder to suit your narrative. Felony murder is when someone dies unintentionally during the commission of a felony.

The girls, 13 and 15, assaulted Anwar with a Taser while carjacking him, which led to an accident in which he was fatally injured, police said.

The girls were charged with felony murder and armed carjacking, police said.

The teens clearly did not set out to murder an Asian, so please don’t try and sell they to us.

It’s strange some on here asking and questioning why no one helped. People will just stand back and do nothing for fear of being labeled a racist/white nationalist/alt right/etc., like so many on here so blithely do.

I seriously doubt you congratulate anyone for being in prison, even if the person is from same race!!!

The one who claim that the minorities are overwhelmingly with donald are the same ones saying that since the attacks are by minorities they have nothing to do with the hateful lies spewed by donald and his klanmen.

Yeah, because this is completely logical. Whenever I see someone helping a victim, I always think, “What a racist!” when the Good Samaritan is of a difference race than the attacker. This is even doubly so when it’s a non-white attacking another non-white and the Good Samaritan is white.

Stick to conspiracy theories because you don’t need logic when dealing with those.

Anyone else getting the feeling that the sum of conservatives' contribution to the anti-Asian conversation will be pointing out black people over and over again?

And does anyone else get the feeling that this position is in some way driven by their desire to negate any and all white supremacist motivations in other, unrelated crimes?

Bystanders were likely too scared to help. This animal looks like a gang member, so high chance he hs a knife or pistol. But someone should have at least done something to stop the poor woman being battered.

Not just Black people, but quite a few. A huge blow to the white conservative narrative, don’t deflect. All races involved in this need to worry, talk and stop this!

That other attack on the subway was just as brutal and left a man unconscious. The black guy just walked calmly off the train.

We? I am talking about YOU. None of your comments on this article had any sympathy for the victim. You just jump straight into how attacks on Asians owning businesses in Black neighborhoods is perfectly normal because of the George Floyd incident. Nobody should be attacking nobody no matter what skin color.

Perhaps 99% of Americans get along with each other just fine.

Who benefits when race is constantly highlighted and exaggerated?

Every single day the media feeds Americans stories about Black this, Asian that, White Supremecist ... etc.
