This is the poignant and striking cover of the April 5 issue of The New Yorker magazine depicting an anxious Asian mother and daughter waiting on a subway platform, looking around nervously. Violent assaults against Asian-Americans have increased by 150% in the past year, as many ignorant thugs falsely associate them with COVID-19, thanks in large part to bigot and lying incompetent Donald "Mango Mussolini" Trump.
On Monday, a man was captured on video brutally assaulting a 65- year -old Asian woman in Manhattan in broad daylight as witnesses watched and did nothing. The attacker was arrested early today and charged with felony assault as a hate crime. As someone who was out on lifetime parole for the stabbing murder of his own mother in 2002, this psychopath should be put away for the rest of his life.
