Warning, this article and its links contain disturbing and graphic content.
It all started with the killing of an Asian man with the graphic New York Post cover (interestingly, from an Asian photographer) by a mentally ill man. Not only was it shameless New York tabloid fodder that set a new low in an already low industry desperate for readership, but they couldn’t even give the wife’s and daughter’s funeral privacy.
A week later, a mentally ill woman shoved an Asian man onto another set of New York City subway tracks. Caulk her up to a toxic result of political, religious and ethic hate. That topic deserves its own post about political extremism feeding the already pliable and paranoid tendencies of the mentally ill.
Last week in Philadelphia’s Chinatown, a mentally ill robber assaulted, robbed then threw a woman onto the subway tracks. No identity of the victim, yet.
One has to wonder how much other anti-Asian violence is out there without all this high-profile publicity. Very sickening. Publicize for the sake of justice.
