As Twitchy recently reported, NBC News highlighted an analysis showing that despite viral images of Asian Americans being assaulted by people of color, it’s really whites who are guilty of the most hate incidents against Asians (such as calling COVID-19 the “Wuhan virus”).
On the other side of the spectrum, we got flashbacks to the L.A. riots when we saw this video of Asian American shopowners fighting back against a black woman who apparently thought she’d been disrespected or something.

I had to go back and watch it again.

How about she doesn’t go behind the counter and none of what you call “overboard” even happens. It’s called personal responsibility. The sooner she figures that out the better off she’ll be.

While I can see why someone would say it was kind of excessive at the end there, I also understand how adrenaline works. If you put somebody in fight mode, flight wasn't even an option here, don't be shocked when they have a hard time coming back out of it.

Watching this improved my day slightly.

The guy filming said, "He's got that gun that's the only reason why I haven't gone back there.."
Kinda says it all.

NBC News assures us that despite viral images, it’s mostly white people who are assaulting Asian Americans https://t.co/Z4utAdkAVJ
