  1. What’s sad about this is that this law should have been a unanimous vote, but it wasn’t.

    Regardless of that, I’m glad it has been signed into law.

    1. ell lets hope the Jail those people. Which by the way is 85% BLACKS. Sure somehow it’ll end up being RACIST to jail a black.

    2. Maybe you should read the bill instead of just condemning those who have and don’t agree with it.
      All it does is bribe state and federal agencies to report more “anti Asian hate crimes”. All it is about is fudging the numbers because “white supremacy” is not the biggest factor in violent crimes against Asians. Ill give you one guess which community is the worst offender.

  2. Congratulations! They deserve laws on the books to protect them from violent hate crimes. Violence against any human being is violence against us all. Suffering is suffering, and it can’t be minimized because it’s not happening the same way for you. We can only hope to see the George Floyd policing reform legislation and the John Lewis voting rights law passed soon. United we stand divided we shall fall.

    1. @N 827 LOL have you noticed how your side keeps losing EVERY SINGLE DAY..? It must be really hard to be a Trump troll these days.

    1. “Corona virus prank in America – laugh aloud”.. Was the first COVID video I saw. And it was made by an Asian. Is he guilty?

    2. Why Democrats will just let them right back out of jail. SMH you people aren’t very bright.

    1. You stand behind Hamas and hate half the country who voted against the pasty white deity. Just saying.

  3. There should a minimum of 10 YEARS in jail for these HATE CRIMES!
    Hate is NOT welcome here!!!

    1. Since 99% of the anti-Asian crime is by you know who then surely by the lunatic left’s own definition this new law is “systemic racism”?

    1. @Fred A You voted for a guy who made sure grown man could use the bathroom with little girls. Oh someone needs praying for and it’s you sicko.

    2. Yup, he’s a good ‘ol racist Demokkkrat. Apparently some races need more laws than others. Wait until you see who goes to jail for attacking Asians (clue, they’re not white, Asian or Latino!)

    3. A good heart? He supports institutionalized racism of Lori Lightfoot. He passes racist policies such has farm stimulus package based on skin color. He allows Loyd Austin to spread his own personal bigotry throughout the military.
      Nothing good about this clown.

    4. You like creepy old men pressing themselves against young girls while smelling their hair? The same goofy who said, โ€œPoor kids are just as bright as whyyyt kidsโ€ I think you need corrective lens or I just donโ€™t know what a good heart is anymore.

    1. I know, like, I can’t even imagine Trump making a statement like this…. These messages are long overdue

  4. It’s weird to listen to a man who speaks coherently with a message of compassion, and not an orange painted lump giving a deliberately belligerent and aggressive screed against all things civil.

    It’s going to take a while to adjust.

  5. Will this apply to the south? Federal antidiscrimination laws are almost never enforced there.

  6. Only problem is. Some peoples. Crimes wonโ€™t be categorized as hate crimes. Regardless of how much Evidence presented. ๐Ÿค”

  7. The first time I heard a republican use the word woke was in reference to this bill. They called it too woke.

  8. President Joe Biden hats off to you..Theodore Roosevelt wrote ” The Man In the Arena” You are that man to many people..
