Is "anti-Asian hate" really rising among everyday average 9 to 5 Americans or is the media just trying to make it seem like it is.

5 ( +14 / -9 )

Burning Bush- it is not. Media has already noted that Atlanta had nothing to do with race, so not sure why it is mentioned here. Even if it were rising, it wasn't triggered by a statement made by Trump a year ago. Crime is rising in Democrat-run cities due to police defunding and refusal to prosecute, targeting all.

Dems lost a lot of the Black and Latino vote in 2020, so this is just an attempt to add a new group to the their plantation.

The above a perspective of those from a majority culture (somewhere) refusing to accept the reality racism permeates US society.

Once again the global far right are denying racism is real.

Once again the global far right are making claims reasonable people wouldn't believe.

I think it's their moment to rise up and be heard. I agree that the Atlanta incident wasn't focused on race; it's not the same as a white supremacist targeting a black person because they are black.

That being said, I can't say I blame them for using their time with microphone in hand to bring up things that have happened in their lives based on them being a minority. Bush's post provides the perfect example of that where he just kind of shrugs and asks if anti-Asian racism is even worth talking about.

At work there's a massive push by the Asian-American community to bring awareness to the issues they face. It will be a good learning experience for everyone, and it shows the never-ending struggle for diversity and inclusion. It's always good to talk and engage.

Parents regardless of their race should always speak with their children about dealing with negative and violent responses from other people.

In all fairness at least let me clarify my position on anti Asian hate.

I definitely disagree with the side that is pro Asian hate.

But the FBI says the majority of hate crimes against Asians are from Black folks. So your "global far right" conspiracy theory has failed.

The above an example of the number of ways what's been written can be understood.

Parents should always talk to their children because that is how children learn.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

If they can force transgender child, gay parents, GAYbcs and BLM activism books on U.S. children, why not anti-Asian books?

-8 ( +3 / -11 )

This suggests that the failure of other racial/ethnic groups--also victims of discrimination to succeed has more to do with lack of motivation or intellectual ability than racism.

No bro-science justifying a bigoted view here. This conclusion is entirely logical. No, really, it is.

Carry on.

The only discrimination/racism I see is against Asians, who, for example, are excluded from elite US universities by quotas. Other groups get preferential treatment--affirmative action. (except working-class white males)

I think it's mainly envy, but sometimes hate.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Asians are a threat to the 'woke' nonsense permeating the US and elsewhere. Although there is no denying the history of anti-Asian racism and discrimination, Asians far exceed the achievements of whites in academic and professional accomplishments. This suggests that the failure of other racial/ethnic groups--also victims of discrimination to succeed has more to do with lack of motivation or intellectual ability than racism.

I agree with this observation. I was thinking the same thing. Asian Americans blow the whole leftist narrative they have of America and hyphenated Americans out of the water. Now there seems to be an agenda in overdrive that wants to put Asians in the same catagory as pocs—specifically in the oppressed category. This will further divide the nation.

Many of us expats have whispered that in Japan there are two races: Japanese and gaijin. But now the joke is on me. Because in now in my country there are only two races: white people and pocs; oppressors and oppressed. This is the mission of this latest Asian hate hysteria fanned by the media.

You're citing the same FBI you regularly pillory as being corrupt. Makes sense. I do appreciate you being on your conspiracy theory expertise to the table though. It helps us non-conspiracy theory people understand the truth.

Sounds like a personal attack. Perhaps you would like to deal with the issue at hand.

Its a very good example of the issue at hand. White posters playing victim to distract from the issue at hand.

No, I think we just don’t believe it’s a growing National crisis

Once again the global far right are making claims reasonable people wouldn't believe.

But we have to believe everything the left media say? Why? If that were the case, California and Hawaii would be as dangerous as Chicago

I think children are well aware of racism before parents feel a need to tell them about it.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

No, I think we just don’t believe it’s a growing National crisis

That’s because you don’t want anyone to understand that you’re pushing it.

But we have to believe everything the left media say? Why? If that were the case, California and Hawaii would be as dangerous as Chicago

Nobody stated or implied you had to believe anything. Why do you put questions into other people’s mouths and then reply with “Why?” You’re not actually making any point, owning anyone, or whatever else your goal was.

It’s never too late to teach your children that we all have the same feelings regardless of skin color.

We? Who's we? It's rare when those pushing the ruling class, establishment position, the position held by the privileged class, and those pushing to maintain the power of the dominant demographic are willing to even try to understand what life is like for many NOT from the dominant demographic.

No, I grew up around Asians, my wife is Asian, my kids are half Asian, so much for that pot hole mistake.

Nobody stated or implied you had to believe anything.

I wish that were true.

Why do you put questions into other people’s mouths and then reply with “Why?” You’re not actually making any point, owning anyone, or whatever else your goal was.

I have no goals, but I do think the left lose their minds when people start disagreeing with them as if their opinions matter ONLY. I do have a fundamental problem with that. A long time ago people could have a debate and disagree without any problems, now it’s like the left wants everything to fall in their favor and they push their opinions, values and viewpoints as correct and devoid of challenging or questioning it and if you do, you’re a racist, you’re whatever euphemisms they want to label you as and that’s never good for a healthy discourse and a lot of us and growing by the day are tired of the bullying by the liberal thought behavioral police. We can agree to disagree, but calling someone a Nazi for not agreeing with you is just rude and pathetic and shows those people are not interested in dialogue, they just want to push and impose their worldview perspective.

It's the rhetoric and comments from some of the posters here which contribute to the increase in the hate and also the ignoring of all this hate. This time it's the Asian community. Last time it was anyone looking just a bit Middle Eastern.

ABOMINATION:

If they can force transgender child, gay parents, GAYbcs and BLM activism books on U.S. children, why not anti-Asian books?

Face it, not everyone is a straight WASP. Get used to it. The fat guy lost.

There's always been such bigotry and dumb stereotypes, but after the 'black-white' race war that Dirtbag Don tried to ignite last year, one that most Americans don't want - I guess it's 'time' for the haters to bash East Asian type people. After all, news medias here have painted China as 'dirty' by showing open air markets and remarking about their cuisine and eating habits. And the lippy sassybrat Diaper Don has stirred up the crap with his immature 'China Virus' and 'kung flu' jokes.

The treasonous Trumplovers are always looking for excuses for their stupid haterd and are always spoiling for a fight, always looking for a scapegoat because that's what fascist pigs do. They're too cretinous to understand that viruses can and do develop anywhere and now they're focusing on people of Oriental descent.

As rotten as the CCP government of China is, CoVid is their bag too. It's all our problem and taking it out on East Asiatic people is stupid and uncalled for. There's no excuse for this crap, none.

Like the majority of the most powerful liberal elite?

and those pushing to maintain the power of the dominant demographic

Like most Democrats do having the most sway over minorities and their communities.

are willing to even try to understand what life is like for many NOT from the dominant demographic.

So why hasn’t the Democrat done enough for this poorer communities? Funny, they never, ever want to talk about that part. 60 years and what can Democrats say that was their biggest achievement in helping these communities?

Middle Eastern people are classified as Caucasian by anthropologists due to face feature shapes and hair textures and such even though they are not 'white' (European descent). Some ME/Arabic people could pass as 'white' due to this but that hasn't stopped the idiots from their dumb hatred.

Now with the CoVid virus and partially due to the media and the fact that Trump's scummy thugs didn't get the 'black-white color war' they tried to ignite last year, now those dummies are using CoVid as an excuse to kill Oriental/Far East Asian descended people. Rotten supremacist dirtbags, always looking for trouble.

Then why don’t you stand up for them instead of allowing conservatives to attack and degrade Asians?

So why haven’t the Republicans done enough for the poorer communities? Funny, they never, ever want to talk about that part. 60 years and what can Republicans say that was their biggest achievement in helping these communities?

I wish that were true.

This doesn’t answer why you put words in other people’s mouths and then argue with yourself. So much for that pot hole mistake.

No, Trump wasn’t the one that started any riots, he tried to stop them, the Democrats wouldn’t allow him to use and deploy the National guard. All of them happened In blue states and around a lot of minority small businesses were looted and burned to the ground and where were BLM? How about Antifa? Did they help these people rebuild?

*, one that most Americans don't want - I guess it's 'time' for the haters to bash East Asian type people. After all, news medias here have painted China as 'dirty' by showing open air markets and remarking about their cuisine and eating habits. *

It’s disgusting you’re right, but that’s sadly nothing new. You will always have your bigots.

And the lippy sassybrat Diaper Don has stirred up the crap with his immature 'China Virus' and 'kung flu' jokes. 

Why? That’s where the virus came from, so Trump can’t say it because China refuses to take responsibility for this virus, give me a break. If the virus came from America, do you think for one second the Chinese would care about our feelings if they called it the American virus, if we got upset you think they would apologize for calling out the origin of the virus? I think you know the answer to that.

*The treasonous Trumplovers are always looking for excuses for their stupid haterd and are always spoiling for a fight, *

So much hatred that more and more black men and Latinos were going for Trump, you don’t do that if you know the person is racist, but we get it, white conservative, add racism to that, helps the left, well, it did before. I guess Candace Owens is a racist....not sure how, but I’m sure the left will find a category for her, give it time. Racism should never be taken lightly, but to charge any group as racist is absolutely dirty and despicable. It should be used when all the facts are are in order and you have sound proof to make the accusation otherwise you’re becoming part of the problem.

I do stand up for them, I’m just saying this is nothing new, now that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be vigilant, of course we should, but this has been an ongoing problem for over 100 years and stop making it a conservative problem. California, NYC and Hawaii are not conservative places.

So why haven’t the Republicans done enough for the poorer communities?

because most of the minorities don’t vote for them, so how can you show what you can do if nobody votes for you, and now we go back to the Democrats and so once again what have they done over the last 60 years?

Funny, they never, ever want to talk about that part. 60 years

I do, very much so, but since the GOP don’t govern these cities and liberals do, why can’t they help these people properly?

You don’t have to wish it were true because it is true.

I disagree

Why are Japan and China so silent about this racist anti-Asian hatred and killings which could blossom into full genocide in America if left unchecked ?

Asian -Americans and Asians in the USA must be feelin what the Uighurs are expriencin in China's Xinjiang province too , yet Tokyo, Beinington and yes the UK 's silence are quite deafening.

That’s never going to happen, never, but I do agree Asian leaders need to address the issue more, it always helps to put light and proper context into these situations.

Asian -Americans and Asians in the USA must be feelin what the Uighurs are expriencin in China's Xinjiang province too , yet Tokyo, Beinington and yes the UK 's silence are quite deafening.

Come on now, way bit of stretch there.

Yep.. the Asian-Americans have moved and are moving away from the left and hence this type of subtle disinfo..this suits the left narrative.. that Boulder shooters ethnicity does not suit the narrative and as such has been dropped.

heh No. There's no way more Blacks and Latinos voted for Trump.

I'm a conservative and I stood up from Mr. Mori (a person who identifies as Asian) while people on the left attacked him for his Asian values.

I also as stood up for Muslim Asians in Malaysia when their cultural values were being attacked by predominately white liberals.

In fact, I'm always defending Asian family values while White liberals attack them as outdated and try to force Western ideas onto Asian communities.
