Its not always "hate" crimes persay, as its also simply individuals with mental issues. Fact is theirs a heck of a lot of people out their who are in need of mental aid, but have gone thru city and state systems that are simply broken. We see the exterior of people and make judgement calls. but we do so without considering a ton of factors. And a place like times square is one where such people sort of roam about in the mahem of crowds, freely , without being singled out. which is often a good thing for those suffering issues. BUT its also a danger when they are fall victim to extremes and lash out at the people in whatever way. This is why you have to be on your toes in NY and other places as well. never assume by judging a book by its cover. Even drop dead gorgeous women can be those with such mental issues. Such things are not a factor based on race and appearance. Dont forget about all these mass shootings, did any of these guys have the appearance of what we would define as a mass murderer? no.. And if you havent noticed, i dont think any of those mass shootings were committed by black people. so even the racist factor gets tossed out the window. what we are dealing with is the fact that people no longer are eqipped with the inner tools that act as a bump-stop of sorts that makes a person second guess or question their intentions. People that are driven by emotional trauma and what use to exist in people that made them stop and thinkbefore they act. Today people dont have it as such. And if you ask me where did it come from and where did it go… imo such things develop in a perso by way of being raised correctly. Thats to say, to be raised with discipline.

New York is going back to the crime waves of the 70s. Not a safe tourist destination.

very boring films August 3, 2022 - 11:24 PM

ny you all got a problem with crazy black men wandering the streets attacking elderly asians. it seems that ever since covid started the asian community has drawn the ire of black men. its like, oh finally someone to hate on now its my turn. centuries of oppression have cultivated this new wave of hatered. and how tf do you attack someone in times square and get away? the subway entrance was right there?

It's funny how there are no Americans ever attacked in China even most Chinese people know the anti-Asians hate is at its all time high in America. Guess China is a more civilized society.
