On Tuesday I wrote that much more often than chance would predict, the victimizers in anti-Asian violence are Black. Today John Hinderaker of Power Line makes the same observation, with video of examples. He quotes Bari Weiss on the subject as follows:

Asian-Americans are being attacked and the media and the political class are contorting themselves to find a way to blame white supremacy or the legacy of Trumpism. Why? Because when the perpetrator is a neo-Nazi it is a moral gimme. When the person carrying out the hate crime comes from a group that’s also a target of hate crimes condemnation becomes much more difficult.

More difficult? That is some serious understatement. When the race of the attacker isn’t suppressed entirely (for it often is), you have to watch the attached video to learn it.
