UK sees surge in hate crime against Chinese and East Asian people during Covid pandemic – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Police in the UK say the number of hate crimes against Chinese people – and others of East Asian descent – has tripled since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Community leaders say that racist claims about China’s responsibility for the emergence of the virus have helped provoke the attacks.

It will only get worse if the government don’t stop their Nazi-style demonizing propaganda against China.
It’s time to listen to both sides and wake up from the geopolitical smearing.

The reason the bbc is showing you this is not because they care about Chinese people being abused but because they are trying to cause division like they always do. 🙂

Q anon is a government psyop and trump is a Trojan horse and an actor. All these criminals are on the same side. China, britain, usa, and all the other major european powers are in on this scam together and are all playing the different parts in a script. It was all planned years ago. Rockefeller, Lockstep. Event 201. WEF Great Reset.

I have a problem with the Chinese government, but not with its people. This is absolutely disgusting behaviour from people. Stay strong my friends, and much respect.

Police in London know all about hate crimes, they commit a lot of after all.

Johnny Drama May 4, 2021 - 4:44 AM

Anyone notice that one woman specifically mentioned that she was WHITE…But the others didnt mention the ethnicity of their attacker, or it was edited out.
These reporters ARE SCUMBAGS!!!

Johnny Drama May 4, 2021 - 4:46 AM

So the BBC is blaming TRUMP, even though the British hate him, and it is a country some 4,000 miles away.
Go figure.

Lots of good opportunities for Asians to punch someone when provoked.

Skins heads on benefits are on a roll.

Hit in the face of those Chinese who yearn for Western so badly.

Tony 'the phony' Blair May 4, 2021 - 4:48 AM

More race baiting, let's see who takes the bait.

RespectOthers May 4, 2021 - 4:48 AM

Like many other media outlets the BBC has played it’s part in fanning the flames of Asian hate.
