According to the FBI, blacks were 55.9% of all known murder offenders in 2019, which equals an 8.2 times per capita murder rate over all nonblacks.https://t.co/LxcypPf7iv— Steve Sailer (@Steve_Sailer) July 23, 2021
1/A thread on traveling in the US when you're not white. First, the obvious: I'm an Asian American woman married to a white man so I know I get a lot of umbrella white male protection when I'm with my 6 foot tall husband, who looks like an ex-Marine–but still, I get nervous— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
2/I start with these facts because I have friends who are Black, friends who are queer and Latinx, friends who are white and trans and their experiences are different than mine. But I think what we all get nervous about is: can we simply enjoy our vacations without worry— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
3/I'm traveling to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, places I've wanted to go for a long time and where friends have raved about how much they love these places. But I'm also realizing that most of these friends are white–so they aren't thinking about these spaces the way I am— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
4/I looked up the restaurant attached to the hotel we're staying at in Cody, WY and a Yelper from SF mentioned a white biker gang with nazi tattoos being greeted warmly by the staff and hosted on the outdoor patio. The review said it was clear the staff was friends with them— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
5/In the pictures of Yellowstone hot springs there is a wall of photos where groups of people are enjoying themselves–all of them are white. Similar situation with restaurant photos of guests and restaurant staff: all white. Which is not surprising given this is MT and WY— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
6/I had asked someone about how safe it would be to travel to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons this summer and they said that given the number of tourists I'd be fine–but I'm not sure what that really means. Fine in that I won't face outright violence? Maybe I won't get punched …— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
7/…but I'm now realizing that just because I may not experience virulent racism doesn't mean I feel fine about what is happening in the off seasons or that I'm barely tolerated bc locals want my tourist $$$ but hate my existence as an AsAm/non-white person. This feels bad— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
8/And the big takeaway I'm trying to share is for me and other non-white ppl, vacationing in beautiful rural places comes with additional emotional/mental taxes and costs. And so a vacation I've been looking forward to now feels additionally exhausting and not relaxing because…— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
9/…I will wonder how or if to respond to the racism I may encounter. Do I leave it or do I say something? How do I keep myself safe, physically and emotionally? Will I be able to just relax or am I going to feel vigilent and wary given the intensity of anti-Asian racism?— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
10/To live with the privilege of not thinking of any of these things–I've never had that–not as an AsAm and not as a woman. I hope I can just enjoy this trip and that everything I'm worried about doesn't come to pass (sigh). //END— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
CODA/If you're a white person, be an ACTIVE BYSTANDER. If you see harassment happening, talk to the ppl being bullied/harassed or ignored by wait staff. Let them know they aren't alone and that you see what's happening and care about them. Let harassers know you see them.— Jennifer Ho (she/her/hers) (@DrJenHo) July 21, 2021
It is sad to see that this is still going on after Joe Biden signed the anti-Asian hate crimes bill in May. The AAPI community has been under relentless assault for over a year now by “white supremacists” in big cities like New York City and San Francisco which defunded the police. In San Francisco, “white supremacists” are also vandalizing Asian businesses and looting stores.
“A woman was arrested Thursday for an alleged hate-driven, anti-Asian assault spree that left four people injured over the course of several months in Queens, police said.
Maricia Bell, 25, is accused of attacking three women — ages 75, 63 and 34 — and a 23-year-old man in four separate incidents in the borough beginning May 23, according to police.
In the first attack, Bell allegedly yelled, “Why are you talking to me?” before punching the man in a Flushing parking lot on Kissena Boulevard, cops said. …”
Don’t be fooled by Maricia Bell.
We learned earlier this year from the president of the Association of Asian-American Studies that “white supremacy” is the root of all race-related violence in the United States. When blacks who live in these big cities assault and kill Asians and Hispanics who live in these big cities, “white supremacists” who don’t live there or who died centuries ago are responsible because of systematic racism.
