MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- Police want to identify the man who punched and kicked an Asian woman on her way to church.

The incident was reported Monday in front of 360 West 43rd Street just before noon.


Authorities say the 65-year-old victim was punched and kicked until she fell to the ground as the suspect made anti-Asian statements toward her.

I doubt there is a real rise in anti-Asian hate. Does anti-Asian hate and violence exist? Sure, just like there is anti-Whatever hate and violence. No "race" is immune from hatred and violence. I don't think the Atlanta shooting has anything to do with hatred against Asians. It was a mentally damaged individual who saw the only way to get over a sexual addiction was to remove temptation.

True. But it's another"crisis" not to be wasted.

He could have accomplished his goal much easier with an elastrator.

Definitely there's more reports of it but whether that correlates to an increase, I don't have that answer. I was so proud of the elderly woman who beat her attacker. What is wrong with people sucker punching little old ladies. I'd love for someone to try it on a martial artist.

The murders at the Massage Parlors was about the dudes sex addiction. The number of hate crimes against Asians is up. From 8 in New York to 12. From 10 in L.A. to 14.
What's not being told is that 80% of all assaults on Asians are by young Black men. But 80% of all assaults are by young Black men. Asians are not being attacked due to China virus, nor are South Africans attacked due to the South African variant. Brits are not getting assaulted due to the British variant. Connecting any random Asian assault to China virus is just media bias that can't stop hating Trump.

My thoughts too. If he truly wanted just Asians then why not hit the casinos and nail salons and Chinese restaurants?

I think this was a sexual sicko myself.

My take on it is to put at least 70% of whatever the news media says and put it in the toilet without letting it see the light of day - because that’s usually all it’s worth to begin with.

I know that there are racist people in our society. There always have been, always will. However, I see the media jumping on stuff to ensure that we are viewed as a totally racist society. The government does the same by dividing us by race, religion, etc. Exploit whatever they can for votes or ratings. While the majority of us are just trying to build a decent life for ourselves and our families

We are all biased based on culture, income, gender, hygiene, diet, truck you drive, kids you raise, hairstyle, politics, etc.
And yes everyone is racist to some extent.
Everyone has some even minute learned reaction or response or initial thought that is racially biased. The anti racist activists are among the worst.
For someone to say they haven't a racist drop of blood in their body is akin to claiming you can't read or write yet correct my spelling.

Now that big brother is sliding his glasses up his nose and leaning into their monitor, I'll say this-
How many people desire to go out and harm or kill people based on race?
How many people (not groups) are advocating for another race to take a back seat?
One only has to look at the FBI profiles to see that hate crimes are not being perpetrated by families of white southern christian republicans; not overwhelmingly, not even a majority.
You don't have to agree with my opinion but I would hope we all start to agree that almost nothing is being broadcast on mainstream media anymore based on news value; every story now is weighed by producers on it's ability to create manufactured consent and manipulation.

This seems like a good time to mention intersectionality.


The reasons for this heinous act are not one thing. It is clearly a hate crime against Asians. It is clearly misogynistic. It clearly has roots in some twisted sexual pathology. These things aren't mutually exclusive.

When we try to pigeonhole it as one or the other, we are putting our heads in the sand, trying to avoid some uncomfortable truths.

There are simply too many rats in the box.
You sure your real name isn't BF MuleSKINNER? But yes, higher population density generally leads to more social problems.

It is clearly a hate crime against Asians.
So, if a crazy person goes to a place that is overwhelmingly staffed with Asians(at an establishment that is often associated with prostitution) it is automatically a "hate crime". What if this sexual addict had been from Nevada and shot up one of the brothels there, for the same reasons as this person? The victims, in such a case would likely be mostly white. Would that be a "hate crime" against whites? Or, have we been programed to jump when the media says "racist"?

Your argument is a bit circular. If a person when to Reno and shot up a bunch of non-Asian women, it would be for different reasons than this perpetrator, because the original crime was motivated to target Asians.

If you are asking whether it is possible for a shooter of white people to be charged with a hate crime, then the answer is yes.

No. I think the Paw’s subtle but clever rhetorical mechanism went over your head.

He was clearly trying to bring the complex concept of intersectionality down to a level we could understand by using a demonstrative example of the intersectionality between blind regurgitation of media narratives and the Dunning-Kruger effect.
