    leaving out the fact that two white people died.

  2. We want justice for all evil that goes on in this world a bunch of sickos out there

    • @art anderson social justice is a joke, and not even a good one lol while we struggle over whether or not mr. potato head should have a penis you’ve got other countries training their forces to kill us

    • And personally, I believe we shouldn’t have cancel culture and we should allow people to say what they want regardless of hate or not. At least that way you know WHO the enemy is, WHAT they want, and who the people are that follow them.

      NEWSFLASH: Those who practice racism can’t cry foul when racism allegedly happens to them (caste system).

  3. people say that you shouldnt listen to the killers words when he says it wasnt racially motivated but then took the killers words when that guy was on death row and said he was sorry

    • Love your pic dude! I also agree with you! If he actually said it was based on race they wouldn’t argue but because it doesn’t fit their narrative they just keep pushing it! They are actually creating the racism because people are going to get pissed off!

      @Mr. Red Nose a man killing sex workers and saying he did so because they’re sex workers, doesn’t make it a hate crime when they all of a sudden turn up the same race and different then the shooter. This wasn’t racially motivated. They shouldn’t be protesting to protect Asians, they should be protesting for stricter laws on sex workers… not only does it crack down on human trafficking but also protects asian minorities.

    • @Mr. Red Nose NewsFlash every culture thinks they are better than the other culture! Puerto Rican’s don’t want to be called Mexican cause they think they are better, Dominicans don’t want to be called black or Mexican cause they think they are better, blacks don’t want to be called Mexican cause they think they are better, Mexicans don’t want to be called black because they think they are better and think blacks target them to rob. Which of you grew up in the hood like me you see and hear often. Asians don’t want to be called black, Mexican, Dominican or anything else cause they think they are better, whites actually like to tan and think being a minority is cool that’s why they are the number one consumers of hip hop! Some whites don’t want to be considered black or Hispanic cause they think they are better, Jews think they are better than all of them and the chosen people by God! They don’t want to be called middle eastern! Middle Easterns don’t want to be called Indian! Everyone thinks there culture and race is better! I’m Mexican American a Chinese store would not hire me because I’m not Chinese! Blacks don’t like Chinese because they come into their neighborhoods and open stores and don’t hire them! Everybody gets it! When you’ve been institutionalized like me before you see how it really is! People are tribal! Do you go to Japan and say it’s systemically racist against blacks and whites because no blacks or whites are in high gov positions there? No! To just say whites are racist is ridiculous and political! This incident has nothing to do with race and with real racism out there why divide us more for political purposes? The msm is truly the enemy of the people instead of helping us come together they divide us more and more

    • Ya I heard he said it was a sex addiction.

      @PhilosophReee Thinking Because it’s a distraction. He’s not the only Democratic Governor to put Covid patients into nursing homes. notice you hear almost nothing about it anymore? Either all claims will turn out to be false or he will be payed to take the fall. Both ways will result in no more nursing home talk and it will just be forgotten about.

      @baba yaga ganoush “If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support.” “”Those people voted the way you voted and who you voted for, I’m just saying, It puts you in the same crowd … You vote for people who have common interests. If someone has a common interest, people who vote like you have a common interest as you. That’s just how it is … That’s how political affiliation works.”

      @Funnyfresh420  ok but he was exactly completely right. Black Lives Matter protests arent full of actual nazis and KKK but trump rallies are.

      @Truth Seeker  freedom of speech doesnit mean freedom from consequences. There is also a hate speech classification for a good reason, because people like you dont see any issue with acting any way you want as if we are all just side characters in your movie.

    • Bodarious Bruh | March 25, 2021 at 8:24 AM | Reply

      @_ so basically anyone can decide what defines hate speech practically rendering it useless.

    • @Bodarious Bruh sure but there are things are more universally considered hate speech e.g. racial slurs, xenophobic remarks, etc

  7. correlation is always causation now.

      @J Tu Mao killed 60+ million of his own people.
      How many did Pol Pot kill?
      How many did the communist regime in Vietnam kill?

      Numbers of Asian “hate crimes” in the US almost become nonexistent in comparison.

  8. Looks like 2021 will be another great year

  9. Hahahah this is funny and are actually making people more Pissed off! They are creating racist

    • @Nevin Caulfield The media duh! Lmao

    • @imdb a3 You can’t be serious! They are finger pointing and always do! They are saying that the authorities are lying and that this should be a hate crime! It wasn’t! The guy had sex issues and prob many other issues! Why are we taking crazy people serious anyways? If the msm wanted to be honest they would say how most of these attacks on Asians are from the black community and has been going on and off for awhile now even before Covid! Some Chinese delivery places refuse to deliver food in certain areas and have been before Covid and these areas aren’t white suburbs

    • Erica Williams | March 21, 2021 at 7:39 AM | Reply

      What’s interesting is when people pretend racism never exist while acting racist towards certain groups of people. Because you don’t view them as humans so they don’t count🤔

    • @Erica Williams who said racism never existed? Lmao! What straw man argument is that? Racism exist on all sides! I’m mexicAn American you call a Dominican Mexican they will be offended because they think they are better, you call a Puerto Rican Dominican they will be offended cause they think they are better, you call an Asian black they will be offended cause they think they are better, and are more cultured. You call an African American Mexican they will be offended cause they think they are better! I know Mexicans that hate blacks because they say blacks target them to rob! I go into a black neighborhood the cops will pull me over and ask what I’m doing there. It’s happened! I mean come on! What I’m saying is in this incident it was not about race but about a guy with sexual problems and a mental case! A Mexican was shot as well as a white person! With real racism why are they wanting to make something racist when it isn’t? Aren’t we divided enough? It’s all political with them, they don’t really care! That’s what I’m saying! Why are we making things racist and divisive on issues that don’t need to be?

      @Nevin Caulfield The unspeakables that run the media.

  10. The racial hate gets stirred up by the network news.

  11. I thought he was angry about the sex trade

    • @imdb a3 I’d say you’re the ignorant one. He didn’t just shoot asian people. Why did he shoot 2 whites and a Latino person if he was commiting a hate crime against asians? I mean are you really this blind?

      @Nevin Caulfield You must be a Blue Anon conspiracy theorist libtard. Too bad, there are only a few of them left. A lot of people are getting cured of a mental disorder called liberalism.

      @Justaman Playing video games Blue Anon is real. Just look up the definition in the urban dictionary.

    • Regardless, it was a hate crime. If not towards a race it was towards women.

      My interest is priorly on his charges and penalty. He’s a white boy so SOME people are going to defend him to get less harshly penalties. “He had a bad day”

      Watch, he’s going to get the “mental illness” free jail card. They use that as excuse every time they can.

      White “men” privilege:
      “He has a future”
      “He had a bad day”
      “He’s JUST a troubled kid”
      🤷🏼

      Yeah who killed 8 people! Ignorance at its finest.

      Thank you for proving that minority lives means crap in America. Instead of seeing the crime done, they just brush it off and pretend that there’s no problem. WOW 🤯

      To anyone who needs to heard this, you do not need anyone to validate you (you’re important, you matter, you’re beautiful, you’re kind hearted). You deserve love and so love yourself. Don’t let ignorance stop you from living your life.

  12. If sarsour is there. You know its screwed up

  13. Linda Sarsour is there? Now I know it’s a joke.

  14. Heels Up Harris is, for the time being, no longer black. She’s Asian, and will be until further notice.

    What about the white women he shot too? I guess their lives don’t matter to these people.

      of course not….if anything, they will get blamed for it

    • The shooter literally said out of his own mouth that the targets were Asian, and the white women were in the way.. just admit you’re racist and go on about your day.
