The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, released results in March that showed a 149% increase in reported anti-Asian American hate crimes from 2019 to 2020. PolitiFact wrote : “The report does not mention former President Donald Trump. However, this shows that Google searches found spikes in racist terms such as “Chinese virus” and “Kung Flu” in 2020. “As for Trump calling the coronavirus a“ Chinese virus ”or“ Kung flu, ”the Asian American Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said, “That didn’t help the situation. And frankly, it’s horrendous that we were allowed … to get so bad. … But we have a long way to go in this country. Asian Americans are always seen as an “other.” In short, blame Trump.
But according to Voice Of America News: “In New York City, where anti-Asian hate crimes were almost nine-fold in 2020 compared to the previous year, only two of the 20 people arrested last year in connection with these crimes. attacks were white, according to New York Police Department data analyzed by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. Eleven were African Americans, six were White Hispanics, and one was a Black Hispanic. Not exactly your typical Trump voters. “I thought it was shocking,” said Brian Levin, executive director of the center, noting that the discovery runs counter to assumptions made by many that anti-Asian hate perpetrators are mostly male. angry whites who blame China for the COVID-19 pandemic. “
But do not worry. Professor Jennifer Ho of the University of Colorado at Boulder offers a ready-made explanation for black hate crimes against Asian Americans: “white superiority”. In an article titled “White Supremacy is Root of Race-Based Violence in America,” Ho writes, “Anti-Asian racism has the same source as anti-black racism: white supremacy. So when a black person attacks an Asian person, the encounter is fueled perhaps by racism, but very specifically by white supremacy. White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it. … The dehumanization of Asians by American society is motivated by white supremacy and not by a black person who may or may not hate Asians.
OK, let’s talk about causation.
Can we hold President Barack Obama responsible for the deaths of police officers in New York City, Baton Rouge and Dallas? These officers were killed by snipers or killed by execution during Obama’s second term. These officers were killed by various black men angry at the false narrative, pushed by Obama, that cops kill black people because they are black.
Can the purveyors of “systemic racism” blame this false belief for what the leftist think tank Brookings Institute calls the “homework gap”? Do black children do less homework than white children and much less homework than Asian Americans because black people are told that systemic racism will hold them back? Doesn’t this gloomy worldview diminish the initiative of black youth, creating a “what’s the point?” State of mind. Thomas Sowell said he once heard a young black man say he wanted to join the Air Force to become a pilot. But the young man decided not to pursue his goal because “they” do not allow blacks to become pilots. This, Sowell said, was decades after the Black Tuskegee aviators of World War II.
Behold the power of white supremacy! He programs black people, according to Ho, to commit hate crimes against Asian Americans. In recent years, there have been approximately 600,000 violent non-homicidal crimes each year between blacks and whites. In about 90% of cases, it is a black attacker and a white victim. Weird that these omnipotent white supremacists, like Trump, do not invoke their “white supremacy” to prevent blacks from attacking whites. And why haven’t these white supremacists programmed black people to vote for Republicans? Maybe they will do it.
