Person arrested for attacking Asian woman with hammer in NYC

Source: NY Post

A homeless woman was arrested on Wednesday for the hammer attack on two Asian women in Hell’s Kitchen earlier this month, police said.

Ebony Jackson, 37, was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing in the chilling May 4th incident, cops said.

The victims were walking on 42nd Street near 9th Avenue at around 8:40 p.m. when the stranger approached them and yelled “Take off your mask!”

She then allegedly swung a hammer at the women, hitting one of them on the left side of the face, according to the NYPD.

5. There certainly seems to be a pattern of these racists attacking Asian Americans in NY

Honestly, I think the police and prosecutors need to take these racist attacks more seriously.

6. Someone is stoking this hatred.

I hope with my whole heart they are found and stopped really soon. This whole string of hate attacks has so many in fear.

7. It doesn't feel right to me too. We never saw this before. I wonder if someone somewhere is

trying to stoke a race war between asians and blacks. It's happening too much.

14. No it has to do with immigration...many Asians were admitted to the US as highly

educated- yada yada- after immigration rules changed some years ago. But given the prejudice, many ended up being small businessmen in the Cities and were not accepted into the mainstream jobs market. They directly competing with Black-owned businesses that had been there for years. This caused a great deal of tension. And the differing cultures played a role too.

13. Of course we saw this before...there has always been tension between the Black community

and the Asian community. I lived in the city (New York). It has always been true...I think with Trump's attacks, many feel empowered to be violent. As always White Supremacism is the root cause.
