Asian hate crime in UK increases during pandemic – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

“This has exploded since the beginning of the virus.”

As footballers boycott social media over hate crimes, the abuse directed at Spurs star Son Heung-Min has focused attention on racism suffered by people of Asian background.

Community leaders say such abuse has increased dramatically over the past year, with the number of incidents reported to police in London alone tripling since the the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

hate crime and hate speech are Orwellian terms.

i feel bad for them, i really like asian people, they did nothing wrong…. pray for asia

Nameless Soul May 3, 2021 - 11:04 PM

It was kinda expected….they were already treating asians poorly and after this virus they got at least a lame excuse to treat us worse.

Don't worry, it's not just white people. Even in India, people are mistreating and badmouthing China and Chinese in general for the virus, as if they just came and sprayed the virus on their faces lol. It's horrible.

ExoHD May 3, 2021 - 11:04 PM

See, this is exactly why I hate China. Now other asians/non-chinese people are facing discrimination and abuse. And the Chinese don't even feel guilty or remorseful for what they did to the world 🤦🏻‍♂️

Jacob Scoffschild May 3, 2021 - 11:04 PM

Don't be fooled by all this sudden lifting of restrictions. They want us to let our guards down. Restrictions will return as soon as they are lifted. Mark my words.

Feel free to rain curses on me 4 doing this, feel free to call me names, but if you walk in my shoes I bet you’d understand why I’ve decided to speak up. I’m an orphan and I’ve got one sister, she’s my only sibling, we lost our parents in the space of 5 months to different tragedies in 2017 which was obviously the worst year of my entire life. Ever since we lost our parents words cannot begin to express the level of pain and penury we’ve endured over the years, we’ve even dropped out of school Bcs we can no longer pay our school fees, I had a small job that was helping us survive But I quit the job Bcs I was raped and sexually assaulted multiple times by the monster who employed me, unfortunately he got away with it Bcs of how corrupt our police system is. It’s almost impossible for us to eat right now, it breaks my heart seeing my only sister Sharon cry Bcs of hunger, it tortures me mentally, emotionally! The country I live in right now is undergoing a serious insurgency and is still running rampant and we do not have access to proper sanitation and protection, no government aids, no food stamps, we are being attacked by Boko haram and some unknown gunmen who have displaced thousands of people from their homes, we are not safe anymore, nobody is safe here, I sincerely need all the support I can get, food is so hard to come buy, 😞sincerely I’m being tempted to take my life some times due to the level of hardship and frustration, Most times we go days without food, I’m using a free WiFi to put this message out, I want to plead for little financial support, life has been way too brutal for us, we don’t have any groceries available for us to feed with, I need your help so we can at least buy some food items to survive on while I continue my search for a job, This is a Genuine plea for assistance 😥.

Racism is blatant in the UK. It's not invisible.

It's an every day aspect of people's lives.
