  1. Well, I for one want to say how sorry I am that ANY minority group is targeted!

    • We noticed you only feel sorry for minority groups that are targeted.

    • @facebook smith Exactly. I mean it’s not like their wasn’t 6, SIX TIMES more hate crimes against Jews than Asians in 2019. Where are the people yelling about that? Oh yeah, they are too busy cheering on anti semite Ilhan Omar.

    • @TimBrown5000 His dementia is too far gone to hide it.

    • @Leroy Ashley If you get butt hurt over a correct mathematical term, then you got the very definition of snowflake.

    • @Leroy Ashley OMG…do you think human being is not a man made title. I challenge you to list one thing, just ONE, that is now, or ever has been anything but a man made title.

  2. brilliantly said, ty all. the prejudice must end! i’m so sorry. sending love and praying for the families and friends of those so cruelly taken.

  3. This country is creating monsters by their inaction TO THESE KINDS OF CRIMES!!

    • This was created and run by monsters lady! Where you been?

      I could not agree with you more. That was beautifully said. It also helps society to see that the discrimination and racism that Black people have experienced may very well have a little to nothing to do with our social socioeconomic ills.

      Asian people do not suffer from the same social economic ills as African-Americans but as we can see that is not protecting them from random racist attacks. So this is a learning lesson for everyone

    • If thats true gtfo of America we dont want traitors here

    • Americans MSM is creating monsters by pushing a narrative long since past!!! The utter ignorance of those who fall into the trap of divide and conquer is astonishing!!! Stop contributing to what the fake, propaganda pushing media is intent on you to believe, use your own brain and discernment. 🤬🤬🤬

    • @Bat Boy haha thats funny.

  4. The USA needs to set up a network of Vocational Training Schools that can help the many white christians who are vulnerable to extremist narratives and prevent terrorist attacks like those that killed 8 innocent women in Georgia.
    If 21 yr old “Baptist” Robert Aaron Long had the opportunity to learn new skills and appreciate the rule of law rather than being radicalised against China by irresponsible Social and Mass Media – this terrorist attack may have been averted

      Most interracial violence is committed by poc against Whites, so maybe set up “Vocational Training Schools” for them? 🤔

    To my Asian brother and sister, keep your head up, God love all of US. I will keep on praying for the WORLD .

  6. RIP to the ppl who loss their lives💔😥😥

    Please, do not blame it on Muslims as always and of course since he is not a Muslim, so he is not a terrorist and he might have mental problems, correct??

    The Ttump Effect. Alive and well.

    • @BumInTheSun TRUMP WAS IRRESPONSIBLE and now the country has to once again clean up his mess and prevent further damage. You can’t dance or word play your way around that kid!

    • @BumInTheSun I appreciate your effort though. 😉

    • @rash b Kid? By your comments and clear ignorance I can tell you probably haven’t lived long enough to even have a kid. In any event please tell us what YOU would have done better? We’ll wait. In the meantime why don’t you tell us what did Biden and others, say about Trump when he closed travel to China? What did Nancy say while standing in Chinatown? What did Coumo say about getting out and enjoying the theater? How many ventilators did Trump supply New York with and why of why didn’t he not have a lot of make shift hospitals put up and send the Navy Ship Comfort to NY to help? Why did he not push for and get operation warp speed into gear and contract for 800 million doses of the vaccine before the vaccine was made? But we want to know what YOU would have done so much better?

    • Asians voted for Trump.

    • These are the same democrats kids who were committing riots in the large city’s. These attacks will pass after the antifa and democrats get bored. Just keep your head down and walk away quickly

  9. This is so sad, scary and heartbreaking.

  12. Not trying to be callous but welcome to the club except black people have racism for over 400 years. Just my feelings.

    Don’t blame black people

  14. Helen Martel | March 17, 2021 at 7:43 PM | Reply

    The level of savagery is mind boggling

  15. Black people have been here 400 plus years, endless is our DNA

    • @Refined Queen You mean sold by their captors and then resold.

    • Oradixie Galloway | March 23, 2021 at 8:50 PM | Reply

      Liar,we was here before the 5 dollar Indians from Asia.

    • Roy Brantley | March 23, 2021 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      @Oradixie Galloway may be if there was more context to who? What? When? were? and why? To clear up miss under standing..

    • Oradixie Galloway | March 24, 2021 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      @Roy Brantley So call black, was here before any races of people, so stop your lies,Indians migrated from Asia.Africa cant get rid of y’all hinnys.

    • Roy Brantley | March 24, 2021 at 2:44 PM | Reply

      @Oradixie Galloway you no u are right, so at the next intersection i am going to turn left, that way u can see the back of head, peace out..

    The killer is going to plea insanity and get 10 years like Dylan Roof.

  17. Chinese victims feels like they’re being picked on again. Remember millions of Chinese were slaughtered by the Japanese? That’s what you called superior Asian race vs Asians, German Nazi SS Himmler said that the Japanese were the Aryan race of Asia. But today Asians in America are being targeted by people who have no German blood but yet the media will just call it “White Supremacy”.

  18. Funny how bigots seem to consistently choose those perceived as “vulnerable” for their threats, harassment and attacks. Bigotry and cowardice seem to go hand-in-hand.

    “As I live, says the Lord,
    Every knee shall bow to Me,
    And every tongue shall confess to God.”
     So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.
    Romans 14:11-12
