These days, just talking about race issues in a critical manner will get you labeled a “racist”. If you don’t regurgitate the rhetoric of the mainstream media and social justice lunatics like a pirate’s parrot, then you are suddenly “problematic” and must be pigeonholed and canceled as quickly as possible. I will be called a racist for writing this article, but then again, what does that word even mean anymore? Almost anything can get you labeled as a racist now, so why should we care?
My position is this: Facts are not racist. Facts are color blind.
I was recently studying the latest “Asian hate crime” narrative and as I examined information on the attacks I was not surprised to find that the mainstream media version of reality was once again completely fraudulent.
For the most part the media tends to “lie by omission”, and it’s something they do on a regular basis. For example, the media consistently mentions “white supremacy” as a motivator for Asian attacks. Yet, the vast majority of recent hate crimes against Asians have been enacted by blacks. This fact doesn’t really fit the propaganda model, so, the media doesn’t mention the race of the specific assailants, they just use the phrase “white supremacy” and let their audience make assumptions.
Far left outlet Politifact’s analysis of Asian hate crimes does not make a single mention of the race of the majority of the attackers. They only mention the race of ONE attacker, the shooter in Georgia. This is not accidental, this is deliberate disinformation through omission.
And what about the shootings in Georgia? Weren’t those committed by a white guy? Sure, but what the media doesn’t talk about is the fact that those shootings were NOT race related in the slightest. The FBI has confirmed this. Instead, the shooter was a “sex addict” who thought that he could remove temptation by getting rid of local massage parlors. The women being Asian had nothing to do with it.
The problem of black-on-Asian violence is so prevalent right now that social justice groups are trying to “discourage anti-black sentiment” because of all the videos surfacing of the crimes. Perhaps they fell for the disinformation too and assumed the attackers were all white? It’s hard to say, but no one in BLM is calling out black people and telling them to “check their privilege” and “stop the hate”.
Instead, social justice groups are taking advantage of the disinformation campaign. They are calling for “unity”, and are of course using white people as their bogeyman to frighten minorities into joining leftist/Marxist causes. So, black perpetrators commit the majority of attacks on Asians, then BLM and others call for unity with Asians to stop “white supremacy”? How does that work…?
Furthermore, the definition of what constitutes “racism” and “hate crime” is constantly changing in our schizophrenic era. Many reported hate crimes end up being heated arguments involving people of two different races. How is this a “hate crime”? Well, if one of the people is white, then it is automatically a hate crime. Thus, some of the more biased hate crime trackers out there (like the SPLC or the ADL) are able to hyperinflate their stats.
My question is, who made the political left the arbiters of what a hate crime is? They aren’t qualified, because leftists tend to be the most racist people on the planet. They see EVERYTHING through the prism of race and skin color. Tell them skin color doesn’t matter to you, and they will actually get angry about it. This past couple years Asian activists were protesting unfair college entry quotas that favor black people and discriminate against Asians with superior test scores; this racism is being driven by leftist groups, not by conservatives. Our philosophy is actually anti-racist, because we believe in judging people by merit and not by skin color.
I’m pretty sure that a lot of minorities also do not like to be treated as if they are fragile victims all the time; they don’t want to be purse puppies for leftists.
If the current tide of society seems insane to you, that’s because any normal person finds these events hard to fathom. That said, there is a method to this madness, and to understand it you have to understand the propaganda tactic of “Gaslighting”. I will be examining this subject in detail in my next article, but suffice to say, gaslighting is an integral part of race baiting as well as the demoralization of honest political opposition. Making innocent people believe that they are criminals and that the criminals are the victims is a classic strategy for controlling those innocent people and preventing them from retaliating or rebelling.
Do some some white individuals commit race based crimes? Absolutely. No one is disputing that. What I’m disputing is the notion that hate crimes are the singular domain of white people, and the notion that it is white people in particular that are responsible for latest attacks on Asians. So, to cut through the gaslighting, here are the facts according to the most recent FBI crime data (2019):
White Americans make up 70% of the population and are cited for 52% of all hate crimes (nearly 20% below the percentage of the white population).
Black Americans are 13% of the population but are cited for 24% of all hate crimes (nearly double the percentage of the black population). Black Americans are also cited for over 50% of all violent crime in the nation.
Leftists often assert that many race based crimes go unreported, and I actually agree; many crimes committed against whites by minorities are simply labeled “crimes”, instead of hate crimes. Crimes by whites against minorities get far more attention and are often labeled “hate crimes” before all the facts are in (just like the shootings in Georgia).
Case in point, this week a black man stabbed a 12 year old white boy in the neck in a Pittsburgh McDonalds while screaming racial slurs and then attacked police when they tried to arrest him. The majority of the media have completely ignored this event and have swept in under the rug. If the skin colors were reversed, we would be hearing about this attack in the news for MONTHS.
The reality that most recent attacks on Asians are being committed by black people does not mean that there is necessarily an issue of “black supremacy”. Black people are not a monolith, just as white people are not a monolith. But there is indeed a double standard.
Whenever a hate crime is committed by a white person against a minority, the assertion is always that this is the byproduct of a monolithic white supremacist organism and that all whites are somehow to blame. Whenever a crime is committed by a minority against another minority or a white victim, the media conveniently keeps skin color out of it, or, they still blame white people. (How about that shooting in Colorado by a leftist Muslim? The media seems less excited all of a sudden when we all found out it was not committed by an “evil” white conservative. Instead, they are now acting as if the shooter is the victim, claiming he was “bullied as a child because of his religion”).
I would usually argue that we should be blaming the individuals that commit the crimes, and leave it at that. There is, however, a group today that does represent a monolith, and despite their name they are not organized by race so much as by ideology. I am of course referring to Black Lives Matter and other affiliated leftist groups. These groups have consistently advocated and defended random violence as well as massive destruction of property over the past few years as a means for political gain. Beyond that, these same groups have often been protected by government institutions.
Thousands of people involved in BLM related crimes have been given get-out-of-jail-free cards by state and city officials the past year. Not only that, but they have benefited from endless media spin, telling the world that they are “peaceful” when most of the evidence is to the contrary.
It is not that black people in general are being given a pass; it is that BLM and leftist groups are being given a pass and this is creating a culture of double standards. I believe this is encouraging further violence among black individuals with a predisposition to crime. There are racists and criminals in every group and of every color, but the criminals and racists within the black community are being sent a message that they are immune to consequences because of BLM. So, they swarm out of the woodwork in droves thinking that they are now untouchable and are free to entertain their worst impulses.
Leftists LOVE to preach about how freedom does not mean “freedom from consequences”. This is obviously nonsense and such musings ring hollow when certain groups are protected from consequences while other groups are constantly scrutinized and punished for nothing. When an ideological cult is consistently told they are immune to consequences for the worst infractions, this inspires chaos. Psychopaths should not be given confidence, but this is what BLM does, and leftist governments are also to blame.
I am reminded of the mass migrations of Muslims into the EU after most of Europe forcefully opened the borders of member nations and refused to vet incoming “refugees”. In the years following the surge in migrants, violent crime in parts of the EU skyrocketed. Much of this crime was attributed to migrant assailants. The problem was that numerous crimes went unpunished, and the European media and governments created policies which even forbid descriptions of assailants in the news to avoid “racial tensions”.
Are Muslim migrants more predisposed to crime? Well, like any other group, when they are given a free pass and told they will probably never face consequences for their actions, yes, they are more predisposed. Governments and leftists in the EU created a social structure in which “diversity groups” and supposed victim groups are given more than equality, they are given privileged status. The same thing is happening in America right now.
To conclude, who is really to blame for the rise in Asian hate crimes in the US? Well, the perpetrators are mostly black, but social justice organizations and the governments and media entities that support and protect them are to blame. Immunity from scrutiny sets monsters loose on the world. Immunity from prosecution sets monsters loose on the world. Immunity from justice sets monsters loose on the world. And while some of these people will eventually be punished for their crimes, such crimes will continue to rise because bad people will continue to be encouraged by the precedents set by groups like BLM.

You’re right Brandon, you most certainly will be labeled a racist for this article. But you speak the truth and the truth is what the world needs to hear in these trying times. The mind of the left is now so dominated now by twisted and illogical thinking, and their views are supported by the false narratives from the MSM, that when this truth is heard it probably sounds like something fake and illogical itself. We can only hope that at least some of the truth will get through to the point that some young minds will start to question the established pc narrative. Keep up the effort. Many are listening.
Another excellent article! If your black and you don’t go along with blm and the racial b/s the media puts out they call you Uncle Tom, wigga, and a few others derogatory words.
There is so much deception today with the media and government and it’s exhausting combing through the lies and disinformation to find the truth.
This is not going to end well! God help is all!
It is piteous, what things have become through the last 50 years in this country. After the 60’s – for a time – it seemed as if we might eventually see People just being ‘people’, instead of what has come to pass.
The increase in the level of polarization (and it’s attendant animosity) in day to day life between various ‘identity groups’ since roughly Bush left office is staggering. The clear, evident trend on the part of the media to exacerbate current tensions is eerily reminiscent of the era of Randolph Hearst’s brand of “Yellow Journalism”; an era we’d be FAR better off not revisiting.
The Media has taken up the mantle of being the Champion of so called ‘Social Justice’ in the country and in the process lost utterly any claim – in perpetuity, IMHO – to report anything…or even exist as currently constituted, but as long as ‘Big Money’ keeps feeding the Beast it will continue to persist. Solution? One and one alone, begin weaning yourself from every Corporate good and service tied to those who sponsor this divisive Shite, ie, “Money TALKS and Bullshit WALKS.”; cut into thier revenue stream and you’ll see an effect soon enough. Witness the response of the NBA and other professional sports organizations when after all of the ‘Taking a Knee’ histrionics revulsed the broader American public; consequently the ratings of all such TANKED like the Titanic going down, you don’t hear so much about that anymore, do you?
But all these things are only symptoms of something deeper, something that has been engineered with great finesse and care; the fomenting of a mentality of “Hyperpluralism” wherein no common ground can exist anymore upon which to conduct civil discourse. The Founding Fathers warned us that this outcome could occur and feared it…as should we. “One Rule for Thee and another for ME” appears to be exactly the intended endpoint of this generations-long effort; the reversion from ‘Rule of Law’ to ‘Rule BY Men’. All too soon America will resemble nothing so much as does China today…the road to Totalitarianism is paved with Good Intentions, exactly as is paved another oft described road with which we are all familiar.
Stand up and be counted now…or fall forever
Brandon 2 things here….
Why is the media harping up on these attacks and narratives it’s non stop 24/7….do you think Biden will take the executive route on guns?
In addition, to a previous post Biden is prepping a 3 trillion dollar infrastructure plan, and you did say you think he will get it, what makes you think that?
First off – I am black and I am fed up to the gills with EVERYTHING being blamed on “white racists/supremacists”. Needless to say that does not make me too popular with black friends and family members BUT it is what it is. A friend and I discussed the Atlanta shootings and I had to point out that the dead included one white male and another unidentified person who was NOT Asian. I encouraged the friend to look beyond the headlines and talking heads who explode emotion and few if any real facts on any matter that would hurt the Marxist/Communist takeover. And by the way, what about the Ivy League colleges that discriminate against Asians in admissions policie – crickets chirping. Continuing my point, as for hate crimes this is what I wrote to the friend:
“As for Hate Crimes – I am totally against any bill that segregates crimes based on gender, race, nationality, sexual preference, socio-economic status, or any other special category. My reason is that it cheapens life. If a person is maimed for life or killed it is motivated by hate so all crimes are hate crimes. When they get categorized the dead person is just as dead whether they were killed because of who they were or were not or randomly slain. As with this situation, they are talking about “expanding” the law. It is a slippery slope because it will keep expanding to include every category imaginable. The person who dies but does not fall into a protected category becomes valued as less than and their family’s pain is viewed as not as painful as the one who is killed under a hate crime. I also don’t see hate crime bills detering anyone who is out to kill for whatever reason. The group most affected by “hate” crimes are unborn children. They are targeted because they are unborn but their murder isn’t even considered murder. Not sure how that differs a lot from lynching Black men back in the day but I guess it is because in their own time period, each was/is acceptable.”
I do find it odd that this most recent event in Colorado does not have anyone looking at a Muslim or Jihad connection. Guess that would be too much like right. Anyway I think most of these shootings are planned to eliminate our right to bear arms. But then, that’s just tin foil hat me.
so when does the media get hauled into court and pay for their crimes of lying against the american people? when do the owners of their media be held responsible for willfully causing so much hate and discontent in the country. at some point there has to be action against media that is complicit in routinely lying by omission or else we will just read articles until we’re all dead about how the media does this and does that seemingly with impunity against our laws and way of life. it’s time they are held accountable for their lies. it’s time for some action.
@Brandon, you thread the needle on that topic perfectly. You are absolutely right in your assessment, and have laid the blame at the feet of the responsible parties.
Excellent article. I love when a writer cuts to the truth, despite how people may FEEEL hurt. Anyway, I’m interested in your upcoming gaslighting article.
Brandon, I must state that for the most part I agree with your article, however I think you have fallen into the same quagmire that those who intentionally use the term “white supremacist” have fallen into when you state “the perpetrators are mostly black, but social justice organizations and the governments and media entities that support and protect them are to blame.” As a retired black law enforcement office currently serving our nation as a government employee I have been characterized as part of the problem simply because of my skin color then I have been referred to as “one of the good ones” when my friends and associates recognize my 20 plus years of military service, my subsequent years of law enforcement service and my volunteer history with youth and my community’s CERT team. Trust me, I believe I understand what you mean but I would prefer a more specific description of the problem as “extremely liberal blacks” or “low income brainwashed blacks”. I know, I certainly don’t intent to police your language, and as I said I think this is a good article. I guess I’m feeling as though I’m being grouped in a perceived monolith that I don’t agree with or support. As a 57 year old patriotic Christian American I can sympathize with your feeling of being mischaracterized and then of being placed in a monolith that you don’t belong in. Welcome to the party pal, many conservative black men have lived that story for most of their lives. Hopefully more people will wake up to the deception and steering of the mockingbird media. Thank you for your work, it is appreciated. God bless!
Well, to be clear, I did say that black people are NOT a monolith in the article. Meaning, all black people are not responsible for the crimes of a handful, just as all white people are not responsible for the crimes of a handful. I also mention that the people committing these crimes are likely already predisposed to violent behavior. Meaning, the sociopathic portion of a particular race is being given license to act on their basest instincts because they now believe there are no consequences. I don’t know that all of the recent black assailants are liberals, or low income, but I do know they have no empathy because of their actions. Sociopaths exist within every race and every group; it’s just that through BLM and government actions the sociopaths within portions of the black community are being encouraged and Asians are being targeted.
Joshua, It is up to blacks to make that differentiation. It is up to blacks to see to it that the media makes that differentiation. The best way to do that is to decide that among yourselves and vote black liberals out of office.
Great response. I would also agree, if I were you I wouldn’t want to be grouped with others that make all blacks, as whole look seemingly guilty, which is basically the same thing that is happening to all white people as we are deemed, racist, period. Blacks, have this ‘We’ mentality that only tends to rear its head when it’s something deemed racist, or actually racist, yet the ‘We’ mentality is not something Blacks live by because ‘We’ as a group aren’t working to build one another up, build up the youth or create better environments for the youth to aspire to be more than a mumble rapper, rapping about percoset and murdering folks. Blacks have a major culture problem. Where are the Black leaders? Where are the people in the community that can lead? Build? Don’t think Whites aren’t facing similar issues, as divorce is over 50%, the White community Is not far off from being a group that, needs a lot of leadership. You can see that with the White youth, they are everyday closer to major issues.
Excellent article Brandon Smith. You are using facts, logic and math in this article so you are by the woke definition of a racist, a racist.
You failed to mention that the globalists are “who is really to blame for the rise in Asian hate crimes in the US”. They are the puppet masters behind this world wide attack on national sovereignty. Divide and conquer is their strategy. Flood nations with illegals from incompatible cultures. Fan the flames of race hatred. They are the ones who fund and support anti-nationalist “social justice organizations, governments and media entities.” that promote an encourage Asian hate crimes in the US and in fact all race based crimes.
For those who are confused by what the term racist means in this Brave New World created by the globalists. It means any one who supports a policy that is considered politically incorrect. For example if certain minorities are disproportionately failing math in school then traditional math is racist. And if you do not agree then you are racist.
You have to agree to their new woke math were 2 + 2 = 5 an every one is a winner. Unless of course you are white in which case you are guilty of the original sin of white supremacy and must wear a scarlet letter W at all times for the rest of your life. If you question this policy of anti-racism racism then you are a racist.
It is currently the year 2021, but it is actually becoming more and more more like 1984 every day.
Having been on vacation in Mexico, I didn’t know about any attacks or any other bullshit. Whatever the media says should just be taken as bullshit and move on. I’m glad that Brandon is highlighting the hypocrisy of the M5M, but the people who watch the M5M are happy to be apart of the spell and want nothing more than propaganda and whatever will make them feel scared. It’s sad. Soon, this will all be over or we can get started with the final piece of the puzzle to be dropped on us. Either way I’m not too worried about what the media is saying and am focusing on making sure I have my family prepared for the hard times.
Black on Hispanic crime is a problem too. This is a recent example that is very sad. A street vendor in Fresno with a wife and four children was killed execution style.
Political activists got in there at some point and threw some money around and manufactured yet another problem out of thin air. Hate crime – schmate crime. Either there is no such thing or they are all hate crimes and should be treated the same.
It’s funny how those that like to preach about actions having consequences tend to be the very people that are given license and protection by the establishment to entertain their worst impulses without fear of punishment even if their actions result in the death or injury of another.
The whole hate crime thing is bread and circus. It keeps the population busy self-destructing while the power(s)behind the curtain do as they choose.
Read an article by ZMan over at Taki’s Magazine recently that does a good job of a comparison to the once great Roman empire. It pretty much came apart under Nero. Worth a read. Some pretty good parallels to the United States today.
This stuff is just getting crazier by the minute.
