    Especially Asian students by “elite” colleges and universities.

  2. 20 bucks says nobody wants to see what the FBI stats have to say about who is attacking these women.

    • @moonboogie N8 I think everyone knows what I am talking about. And if you didn’t understand you wouldn’t have replied

    • @Kavi Stone By a guy named Ahmad Al-Issa. Media still having a field day.

      People need to spend more time outside. So many talking points being brought up that I dont see everyday. I live outside Atlanta the Asian community in Duluth is way rich and doing better than the whites and blacks.

      @Kavi Stone, how many mass shootings happen in the hood? Just because the media doesn’t label multiple victims a mass shooting when it happens in urban areas doesn’t mean it isn’t so. You are so easily manipulated.

    • @TheTruthHurts732 very few with intentional innocent victims

    What this really shines light on is how the media is afraid to show who are the real perpetrators of Asian victims of violence.

  4. WTF are you talking about. You should look into who’s behind the attacks on Asians.

    *”Guess we don’t count…”*

      @Facepalm Migraine I’m not a mind reader. So instead of you asking me what you’re referring to, why don’t you just spit it out?

    • Right this is such bs

    • these liberals today would be like (if an event like 9/11 would happen again): “rip to all the black/asian people who lost their lives in this tragic event” then cry if you dont include their race in something, so hypocritical smh, if thats how you think..maybe the problem is YOU

      @Facepalm Migraine , you do know, his intended target was the Asian woman, don’t you???? The others just happen to be there!!!! [which is tragic as well] It happens all the time, these guy full-in-love with these woman, only to fine out later they [Asian woman] don’t give a F about them, just their money!!!! you know that…

    • truth tracker33 | March 23, 2021 at 4:20 PM | Reply

      @Derp , now, go back in your trailer, put down the meth pipe and STFU!!!!

  7. The Asian community knows who’s attacking them…

    • TheTruthHurts732 | March 24, 2021 at 1:46 AM | Reply

      @B Smirh 1 story doesn’t speak for all of the cases that happen yearly……..

    • TheTruthHurts732 | March 24, 2021 at 1:46 AM | Reply

      @A E and you’re ignoring reality…..

    • TheTruthHurts732 | March 24, 2021 at 1:52 AM | Reply

      @King Willie did you call the police and report the alleged crime that was perpetrated against you?

    • @TheTruthHurts732 – Of course not. What would that have accomplished? A police report, my word against theirs, and a bunch of wasted time. In fact, it might have landed me in jail even though I was victimized. They on the other hand can file an inflated insurance claim along with a police report and a BS story and you know it.

    • @TheTruthHurts732 Ok, and have a nice rest of the year.

  8. When will media be interviewing Robert Kraft for his opinion on this????

  9. Lets not mention the group of people that are responsible for this

  10. You know who discriminates against Chinese women the most?

    Yeah, you guessed it.

    They all weren’t Asian….

  12. Classic divide and conquer strategy.

    • Allan Dunnam | March 22, 2021 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      That’s the cia way🤷🏻‍♂️

    • The Morose Pittbull | March 22, 2021 at 7:52 PM | Reply

      It makes you wonder if the other users pushing the propaganda are trolls in on it, or just that stupid that they believe it?

    • Joshua Bowen | March 23, 2021 at 1:40 PM | Reply

      Oldest trick in the book, also the good cop–bad cop trick. Meaning republicans play the bad cop, people run to democrats to save them. I think most media just do and say what their told and have no idea of the real agenda

  13. You’re not allowed on YouTube or any other woke platform to identify the group that commits the most acts of violence against Asians though.

  14. The person that admitted to pulling the trigger said it wasn’t Race-Related. He’s a serial killer, not a racist.
    MSNBC: “We’re going to make it about Race, the News is what we say it is”.

  15. “Can’t ignore the race of the victims”
    *As they ignore the race of 2 victims*

    • Also the Mexican his life matter too.

    • He targeted 2 asian spas located miles apart. It was premeditated since he drove miles and miles to the 2 different asian spa locations. The other 2 victims just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. His intent was the asian spas

    • @Harry no crap, it was premeditated to target the sucky sucky shops that he frequented. If he was mad at Asians in general he could went to Chinatown and shot everyone

    • @Harry No Duh he wanted a happy ending and they gave him the poo poo platter. He was targeting his favorite sucky sucky parlors. These places had been dealing in the happy ending massage.

  16. Wonder if the FBI will investigate possible human trafficking at these “spas.”

    Suddenly the media go from saying there are too many Asians in college to complaining about Asian discrimination… 🤔

  18. Erroneous Monk | March 22, 2021 at 7:32 PM | Reply

    Screw the “experts”. They’re wrong 98% of the time. And in this case they’re suggesting to us they can read minds. Well done, idiots.

  19. “Historical fetishization” this woman clearly has never heard of a rub and tug

  20. SteveHawkingsLegs | March 22, 2021 at 8:33 PM | Reply

    They won’t let you say who is actually doing most of the violent crimes against the asian community because they will delete it, even if it is backed by FBI statistics.
