Brutal Attacks on Asians continue in San Francisco. Man with Stroller brutally beaten

in broad daylight. Two women stabbed. in separate incident








We need better police presence and a better community response. These attacks on innocent Americans in the middle of the day at random need to stop. We need to stop excusing them due to mental illness or Trump inspired racism. We also need to pressure communities to work with the police to help keep our streets safe from random assaults.

I thought we were beyond referring to PoC as animals. I guess I was wrong...

3. Toddler in the stroller. Attacker just pushes it out of his way,

as it it was an empty box impeding his charge away from there. The father's first thought is to check on his child.

I hope they charge that man with child endangerment on top of assault.

4. This is the third attack I've seen, where the attacker is black.

So, somehow, Trump's MAGA call has crossed the lining of common sense.

5. I wish we could opening discuss BIPOC crimes against asians

without somehow blaming Trump and his apparently magical mind control powers.

Blaming Cheeto Jesus will do nothing about dealing with this recent upsurge in violence against innocent people by bad actors.

6. I would be open to such a conversation.

Would be easier to start with an article from a reputable source. Not impossible to find.

9. As well a discussion as to why...

many people seemingly bring up violent crime when, and only when the alleged perpetrator is a minority.

10. Smashing a woman with a hammer or throwing a baby stroller

would certainly get coverage, no matter who was perpetrating the crime.

Bold attacks on strangers in broad daylight is terrorism in its simplist form. That is why it is covered.

13. Black people and Asians seemed to always have some animosity toward each other even before the age

of Trump. Back in my highschool days the Asian kids and the Black kids would always have some lunchtime fight over something or they would talk about jumping each other after school. Never really knew what it was all about since I usually kept to my small group of friends. I had a few confrontations with white and black kids, but that's another story.

I believe these kids fought each other probably because their parents, peers and the media conditioned them to believe in negative racial stereotypes of other races all throughout their life. "That Asian dude over there probably has a small banana" or "Those black kids are probably the ones who stole Mr. Smith's car" They could have stolen someone's girlfriend or done something small to irk someone enough that their already ingrained animosity could have pushed them to violence.

We need to find someway to get parents and the media to actively teach kids that stereotyping and racial prejudices are the wrong or else the cycle of hate will continue. For grown adults who do these things I'm not really sure what to do about them since they might be far too deep in their prejudices to change who they are. I guess Asian people will need to go out with a group or a buddy from now on to feel safe.

11. What does Kanye West have to do with this ? Kanye is a jackass

but I don't think he has ever been physically violent towards anyone.
