Stop Asian Hate Campaign Memory Holed Due To Attacks Coming From Wrong Race
In an interesting turn of events, the “Stop Asian Hate” campaign that received so much media attention in 2021 was quickly memory holed by the mainstream media when it came out that almost all of the attacks on the Asian Community were coming from the Black Community.
Today we are reminded of this inconvenient truth due to another attack on an Asian woman in NYC in which a man was arrested after allegedly punching an Asian woman over 125 times and foot-stomping her in a vicious hate crime. According to police, the victim passed by Esco, who lives in the same building, on her way home and he yelled a racial slur at her, which she ignored.
This type of racial attack would have the mainstream media captivated for weeks if it was a Caucasian man that had attacked the Asian woman, but alas, because it was a Black man that attacked the Asian women, the story has garnered very little media coverage.
According to the journalist that covered the story, a black male punched a 67-year-old Asian woman 125 times and stomped repeatedly on her head in Yonkers, New York after allegedly calling her an “Asian b—.” The elderly woman suffered brain bleeding and facial bone fractures. Tammel Esco, a violent career criminal, has been charged with attempted murder and assault with hate crime enhancements.
According to police, officers responded to a 911 call around 6:15 pm on Friday from a witness who saw Esco punching the woman while on top of her. The victim was found by responding officers badly beaten and bloodied in the vestibule of her building with Esco still outside.
According to police, the victim passed by Esco, who lives in the same building, on her way home and he yelled a racial slur at her, which she ignored. After she went to unlock the second door to enter the lobby, the suspect punched her in the head from behind and knocked her to the floor. He then punched her in the head and face over 125 times and foot-stomped on her seven times before spitting on her.
The victim remains hospitalized but is expected to survive after suffering facial bone fractures, brain bleeding and multiple contusions and lacerations.
According to the witness, whose interference may be the reason the victim is still alive, “I started knocking on the door, and when I did that it caught his attention, and that’s when he got off of her,” said Yvette Crespo. “He went out that door, went to the corner, put his hands up,” and roared, she said.
Esco was taken into custody at the scene and remanded to Westchester County Jail pending his next court appearance.
A recent national survey from the group Stop AAPI Hate found that crimes against Asian Americans is up in NY and around the country with more than 10,000 incidents reported in the last two years. In 91.5 percent of the reports race was listed as a reason the incidents occurred.
