Chinese Woman Attacked In NYC For Wearing Face Mask – Here’s Why It Wasn’t Racism
(Tea Party 247) – Since the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, the media has been busy lecturing all of us that it’s racist to point out the fact that the virus may have potentially come from Chinese people eating what has been called “bat soup.” Despite the fact that researchers have found that the coronavirus infecting humans and the one that infects bats are 96% identical, you are still a racist if you believe Chinese people eating bat soup is a bad decision and credit it to the current world health emergency.
You apparently are not racist, however, if you attack a Chinese person wearing a face mask in NYC…as long as you also are a minority. This appears to be the case for one Chinese woman who was brutally attacked by a black man who called her a “diseased b****.” The media has been eerily silent on this incident thought.
Summit News reports:
A Chinese woman in New York was racially attacked for wearing a face mask, but despite numerous warnings about the coronavirus provoking racism, the media hasn’t covered the story.
The incident occurred in Chinatown at Manhattan’s Grand Street station when the woman was approached by a black man who called her a “diseased bitch,” according to NextShark.
A Facebook user identifying herself as Gin who filmed the confrontation said the man then hit the woman repeatedly on the head before fleeing (probably not a wise move if she actually had coronavirus).
When the woman tried to retaliate, the man hit her with an umbrella.
“No one stepped in as she was getting beaten with an umbrella until I pulled him off. He ran out of the station shortly after,” said Gin. “I truly believe that wearing a mask in NYC right now marks you as a target. So please be careful, and stand up for your friends.”
After receiving threatening messages via Facebook, the woman subsequently removed the video and asserted that it was “NOT an excuse to be racially discriminatory towards African Americans.”
“The problem is ignorance, not an entire race! We stand in solidarity against ignorance, not against a race,” said Gin.
What seems unfathomable is that despite relentlessly lecturing people not to use the coronavirus as an excuse for “racism,” including by labeling discussion of ‘bat soup’ memes as racist, the media hasn’t touched this story.
The media must not want to make a victim of the black man by bringing attention to the fact that he assaulted this woman simply for wearing a face mask so as not to either spread or catch the dangerous coronavirus.
The racially motivated attack is being ignored by the media, most likely because black people can’t be racist. Only white people can be racist. You better believe had the man been white, this story would have been all over every major media outlet this side of the Prime Meridian.
But, he is a black man and therefore gets to escape notoriety for this despicable act, at least in the liberal media.
