When you run out of things to blame former President Trump for, you can always say that anything wrong in America is due to white supremacy. That seems to be the current trend. After all, it does distract from the failures of the Biden administration in border security, international diplomacy, energy independence, etc. Well, numbers don’t lie, and here are some.
Yesterday Summit News posted an article about the recent claim that white supremacy is responsible for an increase in violence against Asians in America.
The article reports:
Since the killing of six Asian women who worked in massage parlors in Atlanta, the media has amplified the false narrative that “white supremacy” is to blame.
They hyped this explanation despite the fact that the attack had nothing whatsoever to do with race and despite two white women also being killed during the shooting.
Despite admitting the attack had no racial motive, CNN still blamed it on “white nationalism and domestic extremism” in an article titled ‘White supremacy and hate are haunting Asian Americans’.
However, official crime stats show that white people are significantly underrepresented in terms of the violent crime threat they pose to Asians.
FBI crime statistics debunk the media’s narrative that white people represent the biggest violent crime threat to Asians, with figures showing whites significantly underrepresented in crime stats compared to their per capita population.
…As the Washington Examiner highlights, citing FBI statistics, whereas whites comprise 62% of the population, they committed 24% of crimes against Asians in 2018.
In comparison, blacks, who comprise 13% of the population, committed 27.5% of all violent crimes against Asian Americans in 2018.
The numbers tell the story.
