Man Wanted For Hate Crime At Red Line Argyle Stop
The FBI and Chicago police are seeking information on a man wanted for a violent hate crime last month at a CTA station in Uptown.
One time I was at that stop at like 4am and a guy came up and shook my hand and then would not let go and realllllly wanted to sell me some crack. I remember holding his hand for a very long time. I might have even bought the crack I don't remember.
If this guy doesn’t open his racist mouth the fbi doesn’t get involved. He would’ve gotten a slap on the wrist, and that’s if he was even found. Now he’s fucked.
Why are they not saying plainly that this is a black on Asian hate crime? Why are they not calling the murder at the River North Chase bank a hate crime? What is going on here? Are we just so afraid of offending each other?
I don't have much patience for Black people who indulge in bigotry. You *live* with the consequences of that mindset every day and instead of combatting that, you try and find someone lower than you to temporary feel better. Wack.
Personally, been sick and tired of the last couple decades when news media and PC decided to dictate that a description of the perp of violent crime wasn’t going to be described because too many of them in chicago are black. As an asian, I’m SO FED UP, of the only “hate crimes” that get any notice are white on black, but when it’s black on asian, or black on anyone else, it gets ignored and swept under the rug.
White america simply doesn’t know how to handle these incidents, and most of black America ignores, excuses, or rationalizes these crimes as products of “systemic racism”.
Guess what? PLENTY OF POOR PEOPLE (Asians, Indians, Middle Eastern, etc...) DO NOT COMMIT VIOLENT CRIMES. But there always seem to be an excuse where poor black ppl are concerned.
While it’s the fashion the last 2 decades to ignore the ROOT causes of violent crime (cultural failures like lack of family structure/values and rampant teenage pregnacy instead of systemic ones), ignoring has ONLY worsened issues like violent crime, racism, and national division, not bettered it.
You don’t solve or better anything by censoring or refusing to acknowledge or discuss it. Nor does it improve or solve a situation by trying to talk and blame around it instead of addressing the hard, ugly truth.
While I don’t like or agree with the majority of right wing white americas take on black people, I DO understand why the black/white racial divide has flared up so sharply the last decade especially.
When you insist on casting black people as nothing but victims and white people as nothing but racists, you lose sight of seeing ANY racial incident without some skewed perspective. And you fail or shy away properly CONDEMNING racist behavior from black people, as what it is: RACIST AND COWARDLY.
A LOT of negative stereotypes are earned, bc enough of a color or race AFFIRM and play into it. And ignoring that fact or labeling ppl as racist for being aware of/giving voice to that only increases racism and division.
King said riots are the language of the unheard. Obviously a large swathe of white people felt that in January, just like a large swathe of black ppl felt that after blm/Floyd protests last year. I know I certainly feel that as an asian person who’s seen many MANY vids of black males mostly, attacking innocent, elderly, and young, Asians.
Yet none of us tear things up the way black and white ppl like to do. Why? CULTURE. VALUES. BEING RAISED BETTER. Money has nothing to do with it.
Also, no one ever comments on the parallels between more restrictions on free speech and the rise of PC culture, which has also resulted in MORE racial resentment and racism, not less. I remember the 80s and 90s growing up then vs the last 10 yrs, and racism and racial tensions are FAR worse now than it ever was then.
