This 90-year old w/dementia was home w/2 grandsons when men jumped over a fence & entered the sunroom in an attempted home invasion.

This is 1 of 5 sim incidents I’ve reported on in 2 wks in S. San Jose.

“I felt like I failed to secure the home.” Says 1 grandson. Thread ⬇️
The crooks left the crowbar they’re holding in the backyard. Nobody was hurt in this incident.

The same day tho an 83-y/o grandpa was not so lucky. He was at home during a home invasion robbery & hit on the head & taken to the hospital.

Just yesterday 2 men (at least 1 dressed like a mail carrier) invaded the home of a couple in their 60’s.

Their daughter said the men pistol-whipped her mom twice & held dad against his will.

You can see one man pull out a long object f/his bag.

Little Saigon in Oakland is under attack DAILY.

Now dozens of mostly refugee-owned business owners say they want the city to stop ignoring the robberies, arsons, break-ins & attacks.

“When did my life become so undervalued?” says Lele Quach.

This woman owns a cigarette store & says she’s been robbed 7xs. A truck also rammed into her shop. You can still see tire marks.

Trinh Le even sleeps on the floor of his jewelry store because he’s has 10 break-ins in one year & has to be his own security guard. #StopAsianHate
Nearly two dozen business owners met w/me today to share their stories & videos hoping the city will pay attention to Little Saigon like they do to Chinatown.

Here is the Quickly being robbed.

They want cameras, volunteer patrols, more police presence.

This man in his 60’s was carjacked & dragged on the pavement in Oakland’s Chinatown 8th & Jackson this afternoon.

He left his keys in the car while picking up a bag of rice & the suspect got in the car.

The victim runs over & holds on to the vehicle. (Thread ⬇️) #StopAAPIHate
You can see the man suffered abrasions to many parts of his body including his face.

Thankfully two volunteer patrol groups & civilians stopped to translate, call 9-1-1 & render aid. OPD arrived minutes later as they were doing patrols nearby at the time.

Carl Chan, Oakland Chinatown Chamber pres said “ppl think crime is down especially [pertaining to] #aapi hate. It seems like it’s slowing down but it’s not. Report to PD…let ppl know these incidents happen in our community.”

(PS: This patrol member is thankfully a doctor.) Image

We can confirm that Devin Wayne Center of Fayetteville, Arkansas is "Nathan AR" of Patriot Front.

Center was arrested yesterday in Idaho along with 30 other members of the organization.

Here's Center/"Nathan AR" at a regional PF training event last year. Image
Here are messages by "Nathan AR"/Devin Wayne Center in Patriot Front internal communications, from a large data leak published by @UR_Ninja last year.

"Nathan AR" was clear that he lived in or near Fayetteville, Arkansas.… Image
We further verified this identification by locating public photos of Devin Wayne Center, which perfectly matched the individual who antifascists knew as "Nathan AR" of Patriot Front.

These 82 & 72 y/os were tied up, mouths taped shut & shoved in a bathroom for 2 hrs while their San Jose home was ransacked.

The suspects even used the couple’s cell phone to call a translator to get their ATM PIN.

I have NEVER heard of that before. #StopAsianHate Thread ⬇️
They showed me how multiple attackers jumped over a fence, entered (while they were resting/watching Chinese soap operas) bound their wrists with their own belts.

The 82-year old man was hit on the head with a gun & a knife put to his throat.

#StopAAPIHate #StopAsianHate
Their car was then stolen & used in this home invasion the same day. (I shared this vid earlier this week.)

The homes are just 1 mile apart.

In that case, a man was w/his sleeping 15-month old when the group of 5 or 6 held him at gunpoint & kidnapped him & took him to an ATM.

RECALLED: Chesa Boudin was too progressive even for liberal San Francisco. This is a cautionary tale for elected officials in Seattle, a city with similar sensibilities. Asian American voting bloc played massive role in recall. Boudin accused of botching response to #AsianHate.
Americans trust Republicans MORE than Democrats to deal with crime and the economy.…
PROGRESSIVE JUDGES WATCH OUT: It’s not just about progressive prosecutors. Covering King Co. courts, I have watched progressive judges release repeat offenders numerous times, and the cycle continues. Judges must also be held accountable. 👇🏽…

Sagar was getting food around 11pm last Sat outside the Fox Theater in Oakland when he felt something hit the back of his head.

He lost consciousness & woke up in the hospital the next day bruised & beaten. His belongings inc wallet & phone were gone #StopAAPIHate (thread) ⬇️
Sagar & his GF think he was targeted b/c he is Nepalese. She told me:

"𝘉/𝘤 𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘈𝘴𝘪𝘢𝘯, 𝘱𝘱𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘳𝘰𝘣, 𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘢𝘶𝘭𝘵, 𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘱𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦."

A tribute to Vincent Chin begins at 11 a.m. PT today. Watch here:
Only 15 percent of police departments acknowledge that there are hate crimes. Data collection is poor, says Mike German of the @BrennanCenter
The news media, politicians were talking about "the threat China posed." It was not fringe groups, it was members of Congress, says Mike German, explaining the roots of anti-Asian hate. #StopAsianHate #HateCrime

Thor Benson, a white freelance writer, thought he found me & instead harassed a random Asian in New Orleans & made him leave a bar. Benson's followers said the man should've been assaulted. @TracyConnor @CorinneIOZO you okay w/your contributor doing this?
.@aaja, Thor Benson, a freelance contributor to @thedailybeast, @PopSci & others tried to racially profile me in public & instead ended up harassing a random Asian victim. Benson announced this proudly & his followers urged violence against the man. cc: @TracyConnor @CorinneIOZO
A senior editor of @Slate, Jordan Weissmann, was among those who liked Thor Benson's racist tweet announcing he had harassed a random Asian victim in New Orleans thinking it was me. @danathan, are these the values of your publication? #StopAsianHate

A woman who asked to be ID’s as “Ms. Yu” parked her car near Foothill & 13th around 8:30PM 3/27 (1/5) #StopAsianHate
She didn’t notice anybody following her, but as she walked to the passenger side to get her bag noticed “4 or 5 guys” approach. At least one had a firearm.

As she ran away, one suspect “took my keys from my hand and pushed me to the ground…I hit my head.” (2/5) #StopAAPIHate
Seconds later, her car was gone & susps escaped in a nearby vehicle.

Along with her purse and laptop, her best friend’s wedding dress for her upcoming fall wedding was stolen.

They picked it up the gown one day earlier. Ms.Yu was going to store it at her home. #oakland (3/5)

The March 16, 2021 Atlanta shootings were a breaking point for Asian American communities amid two years of growing anti-Asian violence.

On the anniversary of the attacks, the #StopAsianHate movement is at another crossroads.… Image
The #StopAAPIHate movement has had significant achievements:
- led to the passage of federal hate crimes legislation
- emboldened a new generation of activists
- dramatically raised awareness of anti-Asian racism, a form of discrimination that’s often been ignored in the past
“The world of philanthropy for many years had neglected Asian American communities,” says @ucdavis professor Robyn Rodriguez, whose research focuses on Asian American activism. “There’s been a new investment in Asian American communities that hasn’t existed before.”

One year ago today, a shooter murdered eight people in Atlanta, six of them Asian American women from China and Korea.

We remember the victims of the senseless acts of violence, and our thoughts are with their families on this day. #AAPIWomenStrong #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate group of women standing in front of building that reads &quo
As we grieve, we continue to reflect on the public attacks and tragic incidents targeting Asian American women across the country.

Asian American women have been hypersexualized and objectified for both our race and our gender.
We are visible in the ways that dehumanize us and invisible in the ways that humanize us.

We will keep working to tear down these stereotypes and build a world where AAPI women can be safe in public spaces.

Tomorrow is the Remembrance Day of the #AtlantaSpaShooting & recently am elderly Filipina (67) was attacked 125 times (not reposting the vid). How do you come back from that? Who else feels zapped? Holding my Pinay / FilAm / & broader AAPI community close. Some reminders 🙏🏽
#StopAsianHate is part of it, but let’s move towards language around “Stop Asian Racism & Violence” as it acknowledges a foundation built on institutions, systems, & ways of being grounded in yt supremacy, anti-Blackness, colonialism, & misogyny. Transformation calls 4 abolition
Remember that attacks on Asians have come from multiple races. (See image from @blackandasiansoulsunite). Not to dismiss the necessary work between Black & Asians but prefacing b/c I know someone might fall into scapegoating entire communities based on this event or social media: Image

If you only read 1 article this week, pls stop & read this honouring memories of those who were murdered in Atlanta spa shootings 1 yr ago this week.
Exquisitely written; reads like a historical novel but is tragic reality. Weaves how immigrant labour /1…
colonialism, imperialism (globally), racism of different groups in North America are all connected.
"Although Chinese labor completed much of the public infrastructure work...the Chinese pop'n was scrubbed from history, subsumed into the Black-white binary of the American South"
"If you didn’t know if you would end up a spa worker, a FedEx driver, or an undocumented worker, or a Black student in [mainly] white school in Deep South, or a Cherokee tribesperson in 1830, or a Chinese laborer in xenophobic gold-rush Cali, what world would you want to build?"

🧶 This took me 2 days to share—it’s so painful. Thursday, @fcpsnews did the unconscionable, using security to scare mama bears from India, China, Peru, the USA. Hear our voices rise up to reveal the hypocrisy of their systemic racism in #UnFairfax. We triumph! I ❤️ these moms.
Our night began with a @coalitionforTJ rally to tell @fcpsnews to #StopAsianHate in #UnFairfax VA. Thank you @fox5dc @PerrisFox5DC for sharing our story. The school board, @TJAnnB @FCPSSupt @AtifQarni conspired against Asian kids. Hear @TJAlumniAG endorse what is now illegal.
Meet @MarguliesNorma, who immigrated from Peru. @fcpsnews had the bigotry of low expectations for her son, who is in the last class admitted on merit in 2020. 🔥She describes Judge Hilton’s “devastating indictment of your moral caliber.” “Resign!” Watch how the camera then moves.

𝗥𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗛𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗥𝗼𝗯𝗯𝗲𝗿𝘆: I spoke to this 70-year old Chinese woman tonight. She was robbed of her purse Saturday around 7:30pm.

This happened in the parking lot of a senior living facility in Oakland. (1/4) #StopAAPIHate #StopAsianHate
The suspect approaches her, grabs her purse, whips her around & wrestles w/her on the ground.

The victim told me in Mandarin she thinks she was targeted because she's Asian & is afraid to go out after learning about crimes in Chinatown & other areas. #StopAsianHate (2/4)
Her hands scraped the pavement but otherwise she is not too physically hurt.

She had no Chas but lost her credit cards. The Oakland Chinatown Improvement Council is providing translation for to her since she needs assistance getting those cards replaced. (3/4) #StopAAPIHate

ENOUGH: I'm talking to many journalists who are tired of being threatened, doxxed, intimidated, and in some cases, violently assaulted by aggressive activists or dare I say it, "Antifa." But journos like me and @MrAndyNgo should not have to walk alone.…
It’s time for journalists and other news outlets to make a decision. Either we sit passively on the sidelines, or we publicly condemn the threats and violence. I am calling on industry friends like @rcfp @aaja @spj_tweets @pressfreedom @uspresstracker @FTVLive to do the same.
With the warmer months ahead of us in Seattle, we are going to see more protests. Most of it will be peaceful. But when certain actors choose to block our cameras with umbrellas, physically assault us, and prevent us from shining a light on the truth, that’s a problem. 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 Image

The older I get, the more I've begun to use "anti-Black" when describing the racism Black people experience because it's not that society doesn't want to talk about racism -- it's that they don't want to discuss it when it impacts Black people, therefore making them anti-Black.
Notice how there was no mass debate, confusion, or argument when #StopAsianHate went viral. White conservatives like Meghan McCain could rally behind that in solidarity without feeling as if it was attacking her whiteness.

The same couldn't be said for #BlackLivesMatter
This week, so many people who often don't speak on race was quick to remind everyone that the Holocaust was about racism.

This is absolutely true -- but it's also interesting that these are the same people banning books by Black authors that discuss race.
