 Horrific Attacks And Hate Crimes Against Asian-Americans on the Rise
“The more complicated a story is, the more important it is to take time” and cover it right, he says, whether that story involves coronavirus vaccinations, gun violence, or attacks against Asian-Americans, as is the case here.

In Sunday’s episode of  60 Minutes+ , Lowery will take a closer look at the surge in hate crimes against Asian-Americans, inspired partly by the Atlanta spa shootings a few weeks ago but also the acts of violence and that have taken place sporadically across the country in recent weeks.

In a phone conversation with  Forbes  ahead of his new report being available to stream on Paramount+, Lowery talked about his motivation to tell this story while also offering something of a playbook that other reporters across the industry might do well to follow instead of the unsatisfying, sensationalized coverage that lurches from one crisis to the next.

I don't believe those shootings had anything to do with anti Asian violence brought on mostly by black Americans. Video after video show this is the truth.

Well, of course you are entitled to your opinions. Andover time I think most of use here are aware of your political views...so I am not surprised in the least.

My political views have nothing to do with it. There is documented evidence that the majority, if not all, of videoed assaults, have been committed by blacks.

That is not political. That is cold, hard facts.

No they can't.

And now, it seems that there are more than one here that hear dog whistles that no one else hears.

The sad thing is that leftists are for more likely to act after they hear those whistles, and not in a positive way.

My wife is Asian, and all of the hateful remarks she has received since she arrived here LEGALLY in 1981 is from blacks.

Nothing racist about that.

The prevalence of attacks against Asian-Americans — such as a particularly vicious assault a few days ago on 65-year-old Vilma Kari in New York City, captured on extremely disturbing surveillance footage that’s shocked viewers across the country — is one of those kinds of stories. To a journalist like Lowery, the worst thing in the world would be to treat this as just another story, packaged in time for another deadline, before moving on to the next thing.

“The Atlanta shooting was such a big, shocking moment, but also all these videos — it seems like every day, we’re seeing an Asian-American somewhere being attacked in public,” Lowery told me.

Sadly this another in a long list over the decades of the pain that Asian Americans experience because of racism. My neighbors are Asian American and I have many friends that are Pacific Islanders, especially Samoan. Perhaps because I'm a minority and speak Samoan that they will say things to me that they have not said outside the Asian/Pacific Islanders community. 

Acts of racism are not just another news story, acts of racism change peoples lives, the way we act, how we relate to others so reporting that ''Another Asian/Pacific Islander'' was attacked is far from the end of the story. 

Very good article.

There has been a long history of racist hatred (and in many cases horrific violence) against Asian-Americans.

There has been a long history of racist hatred (and in many cases horrific violence) against Asian-Americans.

And while this has been true for a long time, and in recent years the number of cases have quite suddenly skyrocketed.

I had been wondering why such an increase in such a short time, and after researching it, its become obvious that the cause for the recent  increase is the sudden use and popularizing of terms in regards to the Covis-19 such as referring to it as "The Kung Flu", and also calling  "The Chinese Virus".

Yes, in America going as far back as at least the 19th century.  It's well-ingrained.

AND the ramped up demonization by Trump and his administration of China, its government (raiding the Houston Consulate and finding no evidence of espionage), its corporations (Huawei, TikTok, WeChat, etc), its cultural facilities (the Confucius Institutes), its students, its economy, (Trade wars), its domestic affairs (Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan).

Many of these attacks are committed by people of color.

And the Trump government delayed, misled and mismanaged and let it spread beyond control killing almost 600,000 Americans.  Be proud, be very proud and open your eyes before you accuse others.

Kim Jung UN-- maybe, that would definitely be in character.

And of course the terrorist leadership of the Palestinian State in Gaza-- they want to kill their people off!

But China?

No way!

Hannity is definitely one of the worst hate mongers on Fox News-- although he has competition!

(Although its probably a tie as to who's the biggest liar of their people, IMO the nastiest is Laura Ingraham...although admittedly its a close race for that title).

Yeah, sure.  We've seen this crap before.  Since these attacks on Asian-Americans can't be white washed then the story suddenly becomes complicated and needs more nuanced reporting.

From the seeded article:

The urgency for reporting like this is also reflected in the American political landscape of the moment that goes beyond direct attacks and hate crimes themselves against Asian-Americans. Consider, for example, the rhetoric of a Republican congressional candidate in Texas, who blamed Chinese immigrants for spreading coronavirus, among other things, during remarks she made a few days ago.

“I don’t want them here at all," said Sery Kim, who also worked in the Small Business Administration during the Trump administration, during a candidate forum. "They steal our intellectual property, they give us coronavirus, they don’t hold themselves accountable.”

"And quite frankly,” she added, per NBC News, “I can say that because I’m Korean."

Yes, Sery Kim is a Republican candidate that has been blaming Chinese immigrants for the pandemic.  Sery Kim is also an Asian-American.  Not so easy to white wash this story, is it?

So reporting the story requires a whole lot more nuance.  Can't call minorities racist, after all.  SSDD from the news media.
