Hate crimes: How they affect BIPOC and why they are on the rise | Just the FAQs

 

Hate crimes are on the rise against communities of color. In 2019, they reached their highest level in more than a decade. Here’s why.

RELATED:

A series of violent crimes against Asians and Asian Americans has prompted activists and experts to warn that racist rhetoric about the coronavirus pandemic may be fueling a rise in hate incidents.

Police in Oakland, California, announced this week that they arrested a suspect in connection with a brutal attack of a 91-year-old man in Chinatown that was caught on camera. In less than a week, a Thai man was attacked and killed in San Francisco, a Vietnamese woman was assaulted and robbed of $1,000 in San Jose, and a Filipino man was attacked with a box cutter on the subway in New York City.

It's unclear whether the crimes were racially motivated, but advocates calling for more to be done to address violence against Asian Americans say racist crimes against the community are historically underreported for a variety of reasons.

  1. When basically everything is considered a “hate crime,” the number of incidents go up. WTF you expect genius?

  2. No one in this era has never actually faced hate crime the definition of hate crime to people now is calling the gay or the color of there skin and they get in a temper tantrum such silly people there are now

  3. Thought i might learn something. Still had to look bipoc up. Nice one for moving forward, forward thinking etc. Another generation of kids knowing the meaning of rascism first through media and hate of the past. Keep it going, genious’. (facetious)

  5. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking group called dark web, they are really good at what they are doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying . Few days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5,000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life with my Family. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $90,000 without any stress of being caught.
