  1. What about the two non Asian women that were murdered??? Or the male bystander that was shot? Jesus this is sickening how the press push a narrative and just don’t even mention the other two women murdered because they don’t matter. Sickening.

  2. God bless you sister. I’m also blessed that my grandfather came here in the potato famine and with black lung also, from the coal mines of Ireland. We are all immigrants now

    1. Says the radical right Qanon fraud who chose not to listen to our Asian American representatives. Too bad facts don’t care about your feelings.

  3. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  4. Props to you Rep. Grace Meng. Its thanks to leaders like you that I will persist in my career in electoral politics and public service.

  5. We are all human whether we work in a meat processing plant, in a message spa, or cleaning other people’s toilets. I suppose this also applies to Republican lawmakers, although that one is more difficult to fathom.

    1. When a minority does something so terrible, they’re characterised as a, “monster,” and rightly so. Yet, a white guy commits the same atrocity, and the cops come out to announce, “he’s just having a bad day.” And, that received wisdom type of racism isn’t at the core of this issue? Why were the press not appalled by that?

  7. Umm… the attempt to bring respect to those victims… I feel that it should be unnecessary to do so. I’m a believer that our environment chisels us into what we believe and how we behave.
    This allows me to ” respect ” everyone without agreeing with them or their ways.
    The decision to disrespect is made before the decision to wrong others is made. This puts in question the description of “hate crime” accuracy.
    Racism is the disrespect of a race without the individual need of any action or inaction to cause the disrespect.
    What has this to do with this situation.

  8. I could not agree more that the first generation immigrant parents sacrificed their comfortable lives in their home country to come here for their children’s future. Leaving behind their careers, families and friends so their children might have a better future. Which now is no guarantee because US is sadly still a very racist country toward blacks and legal immigrants.
