Anti-Asian Attacks

From BibleStrength

The following is a list of all anti-Asian hate crime cases, organized sectionally by race of the offender. Sorting will be done first by incident count, secondly by whether the assailant is named, thirdly by severity type, and fourthly by year.

Most anti-Asian hate crimes are committed by blacks in spite of the fact that they are only 13% of the U.S. population compared to 60% non-hispanic white, 19% hispanic, and 6% Asian.[1] 12 of the 20 anti-Asian hate crimes committed in New York City in 2020 were by blacks.[2] It should also be observed that the most violent crimes, especially murder, are committed almost exclusively by blacks. It should also be observed that this is consistent with the fact that blacks account for 53% of all murders and 54% of all robberies in the United States.[3]

In 1982 Vincent Chin was bludgeoned to death by two white men, Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz, who were angry that U.S. auto jobs were being lost to Japan.[57]
