In 1988, Mark Wahlberg attacked two Asian American men in separate racially motivated hate crimes. Asian American men , Asian men have been basically eunuchs in American cinema and television, and I thought maybe it would be seen as a continuation of that. Cho was accused of misogyny, homophobia, and other issues by asian activists. That asian women suffer more or less than asian men should not be taken out of context to imply that asian women do not suffer, that LGBTQ asians do not suffer, but this is the type of rhetoric that our asian activists love spending their energy

Well in this case his parents were literally trying to get him committed when he did it. I think that’s probably the reason that it went this way. In general I don’t think mental illness should be considered and all punishments should look at likelihood of committing another crime and release only after the danger is minimized. In my opinion racially motivated hate crimes like this shouldn’t be allowed a defense of insanity.

According to KOMO News, the racially motivated attack happened around 8:30 Tuesday night when the Black man stepped outside to smoke a cigarette with his girlfriend, who is white. Black Lives Matter has received much criticism as of late over their recent stance against Israel’s occupation of Palestine. But even before then, members of the activist group have received public tongue-lashings and even threats from some conservative critics. Tuesday night’s attack comes just days after a KKK leader announced the group’s plans to disrupt a Black Lives Matter rally in Long Island next Sunday.

In addition to his nearly seven-year prison term, Hougen was sentenced to an additional three years' probation.

Evidence presented by the DOJ stated that Hougen confronted a 29-year-old Black man who was crossing the street in Santa Cruz. It is not clear what prompted Hougen to ambush the man.

Hougen then proceeded to brandish a knife and stabbed at the victim between 10 and 20 times, according to eyewitness reports corroborated by the DOJ. The stabbings targeted the man's head, chest and stomach, and Hougen was also heard spouting racial slurs during the attack, authorities said.

The incident represented Hougen's fourth known racially motivated attack against a Black man in a seven-year span. At the time of this stabbing, he was on probation in a separate attack for which he had been charged in a state court.

  New maps spark debate over majority-minority districts DETROIT (AP) — Adam Hollier is a lieutenant in the Army Reserves, a paratrooper, Detroit native, a Democrat and a Black man. He is also a state senator who represents a majority-Black district that stretches across the northeastern edge of his economically battered and resilient hometown.

Victims of one of Mark Wahlberg's racially - motivated attacks as a teenage delinquent in segregated Boston in the 1980s are divided over whether he should be granted a pardon for his crimes.

A Black Lives Matter die-in over rail tracks, protesting alleged police brutality in Saint Paul, Minnesota (September 20, 2015).

All four incidents involved Hougen either threatening or directly committing violence against Black men, the DOJ said.

Hougen's conviction was officially for violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Signed into law in 2009 by former President Barack Obama, the act created additional guidelines under which hate crimes could be prosecuted and provided additional funding for states to investigate racial intolerance.

Hougen's conviction is the first instance of sentencing under the act in the Northern District of California, the DOJ said.

"Racially motivated violent attacks cannot be tolerated in any society," said acting U.S. Attorney Stephanie Hinds. "The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act provides significant penalties for violence motivated by racism and other group hate."

"This office will use this and every other tool to ensure prosecutions are brought down on criminals committing violence motivated by animus towards our community's protected groups," Hinds added.

Floyd was sentenced to five years in prison for that armed robbery crime. So the media withholds the real facts about Floyd, including the fact that he was high on two different drugs (including fentanyl) at the time of his arrest.

Because white men love to entertain the delusion that they physically dominate and lord over "inferior" Asians. In WWII after Japan's surrender the first thing the GHQ did was take a photo of American general MacArthur towering over the Showa emperor and print it in every Japanese newspaper to make the Japanese believe white people are superior. Physical domination is the main method whites use to humiliate and demoralize their enemies, and yes this means as an Asian person you are the enemy even though Taiwan is formally a US ally.

"Racially motivated crimes have no place in our society. This defendant has attacked at least four people because they are Black, and for his most recent racially motivated attack of a Black man, the defendant has been convicted," said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division. "The Justice Department will continue to vigorously prosecute bias-motivated crimes in an effort to secure justice for victims of these crimes and the communities they are meant to target and intimidate."

The DOJ was assisted in Hougen's case by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

"All crime is unacceptable, but hate crimes are particularly cruel," said Jay Greenberg of the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division. "They strike at an unchangeable, fundamental, and defining part of a victim's identity. In this way, they attack everyone who identifies with this victim."

Newsweek contacted the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for comment.
