According to the U.S. Department of Justice in 2018, there were 182,230 attacks against Asian people. Every race except for Asians was most likely to be victimized by someone of their own race. Asians, however, were most likely to be victimized by a black person. 27.5% of attacks against Asian people were committed by black people, compared to 24.1% by white people and 24.1% by Asian people. Just 7.0% of these attacks were committed by Hispanic people.
Representing 13.4% of the U.S. population, black people are vastly overrepresented among perpetrators of violent acts against Asian Americans, making the “blame white supremacy” line ever more challenging for the opportunistic Left.
What makes matters “worse” for the Left is that several attacks against Asian Americans have been shared widely on social media, further contradicting their claim that anti-Asian violence is unique to white Americans. For example, security cameras recorded an attack committed in New York, in which a 65-year-old Asian woman was brutally beaten in the street, reportedly by the later-identified and arrested Brandon Elliot. Elliot is black.
