Schrodinger's minority: Why do the left only get angry about anti-Asian violence when it’s done by whites & otherwise ignore it?

Decrying any sort of race-based violence is not a bad thing. In fact, it would be rather weird if people didn't. One thing that will get people here in America to give you the side-eye is the timing and the policy prescriptions that come afterwards. The current case in point is the shooting in Atlanta that targeted massage parlors owned by, and employing, people of Asian origin.

The Democrats were quick to decry the violence, but it was attached to the same song and dance that we’ve seen over the last four years. They blamed guns and Trump. I don't know if anyone let them know this, but guns don’t fire themselves and Trump is no longer president.

All sarcasm aside, the former president never spoke ill of Asian Americans, but of the Chinese government. Beyond that, firearms alone don’t make a killer. But the left knows all of that.

So why – when they ignored so many previous attacks on Asian Americans (there were more than 3,800 incidents of such violence last year, up by more than 150% in some cities) – have the Democrats come out so strongly........
