Sudden significant rise in anti-Asian violence in US.

My bet: veiled retaliation against VP Harris.

Just like with Obama.

5. God damnit.

This makes me so angry and sad.

I disagree with you about it being in response to the vice president because they donít perceive her as Asian per se, but as a black woman. However she is.

I think this is just in response to all the shit that Trump had flying all over the place. The hateful shit.

7. Yeah , the racist attacks on Harris are always about her being black and of course there are the

attacks on her being a woman also .

The attacks on Asians having been going on even before but as I mentioned before it's just getting more attention now because before Trump took all the attention . So almost everything gets more attention now.

6. It's not sudden. It's been happening . It gets more attention now

because almost everyone is getting more attention since Trump left and was banned from Twitter.

8. I think it's more because Trump made such a big deal of blaming covid on China.

9. Terrible, mostly due to Trump and his 'China virus' rhetoric.

Several attacks (some fatal) of Asian men occured in the past few days in NYC, and there have been many attacks in SF and elsewhere.

Similar to after 9-11 when many hate crimes targeted Arabic people.

10. The man arrested for the three attacks in CA is named Yahya Muslim. He's a black man.

Why would he be attacking Asian people to retaliate against Vice-President Harris?

12. No, it's actually related more to Trump's attempts to link the coronavirus to China.

13. Its because of the China flu, Kung flu references by Trump.

It was like an announcement that its ok to go after Asians.
