Attacks on Asian Americans increased by more than 150% from last year, including the massacre of masseurs in Georgia in March. While many point to the role of persistently anti-Chinese rhetoric in the media and by the government, the roots of discrimination against Asians in the United States date back more than a century.

An Asian woman was attacked on Sunday by a hammer-wielding person in central New York in the latest assault on Asians and Asian Americans since the US government declared China its number one opponent.

According to local news reports, the attack occurred on 42nd St., near New York’s iconic Times Square, around 8:45 pm. The victim, a 31-year-old woman from California, was walking when another woman unknown to her but believed to be white and in her fifties approached her.

“Take off your mask!” he would have said.

When the victim refused to obey, the other woman reportedly pulled out a hammer and hit her, hitting her left side of her face. The assailant escaped and the woman was treated at NYU Langone Health for lacerations to her face.

The NYPD is investigating the attack as a hate crime.

While the worldwide adoption of face masks in public only came with the COVID-19 pandemic, in many East Asian nations it has long been customary to wear a face mask in public if it feels bad. In China, awareness of the safety masks it can provide was also raised during the SARS outbreak in 2002-2003, when a virus related to COVID-19 caused several hundred deaths.

Just a day earlier, a 20-year-old man had been arrested at the city’s Grand Central Station for allegedly assaulting an Asian couple outside. According to the New York Post, the suspect, Adam Taversiere, called the couple “dangerous” and told them “you don’t belong here” before hitting the woman on the head with a bag of potato chips.

According to compiled police data, attacks on Asian-Americans increased by 164% in the first three months of 2021, with 95 attacks in the country’s 16 largest cities during that period, including the murders of eight women who worked as massage therapists. in Atlanta. , six of whom were Asian. In 2020, advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate recorded 3,795 hate incidents directed against Asian Americans, nearly half of which occurred in the eight weeks following the declaration of a pandemic as COVID-19 spread across the country. world.

New York Attorney General Tish James told a crowd protesting the rise in anti-Asian racism over the weekend that hate crimes against Asians-Americans increased 223 percent in New York from last year. year.

Community activists have attributed the rise in violence to form US President Donald Trump by calling COVID-19 the “Chinese virus” and related terms that suggest the deadly virus is a plague of Chinese design, but also general demonization. of China as a rising power engaged in “great power competition” with the United States.

They also highlighted the historical perspective, noting Chinese exclusion laws that prevented Chinese immigrants from entering the country or becoming citizens, and Japanese internment camps during World War II, which were created on the assumption that Japanese-Americans they weren’t really American but were in fact still loyal to the Japanese empire, against which the United States was at war.
