Black men attack Asians in New York City (VIDEOS).

UPDATED on 3/31/2021.

The NYPD has arrested the Black man that attacked the 65-year-old Asian woman on Monday, March 29, 2021. Police say Brandon Elliot, who was previously convicted of killing his mother in the Bronx, faces assault charges for attacking 65-year-old woman.

Police said Brandon Elliot, 38, was living at a hotel that serves as a homeless shelter a few blocks from the scene of the attack. Brandon Elliot was “charged with Felony Assault as a Hate Crime.”

Tuesday, March 30, 2021. New York City – A 65-year-old Asian woman was beaten by an African-American man in Manhattan. A Black man attacked an Asian man on a train in Brooklyn. A Black man used anti-Asian slurs at an Asian woman on the 7 train and smashed her phone. A woman was en route to an Anti-Asian Violence protest when she was attacked by a Black man (he has been arrested). And other attacks.

Asian-Americans say that the attacks are nothing new. The number of hate incidents reported represent only a fraction of the number of hate incidents that actually occur.

On Monday, March 29, 2021, in broad daylight in Midtown Manhattan, a 65-year-old Asian woman was kicked to the ground and stomped on by a Black man who police say made “anti-Asian statements.” A video shows an unidentified African-American man violently kick the Asian woman as she falls to the ground, before he continues to kick her several times. The woman was going to church when the Black man attacked her.

The attack occurred at around 11:40 a.m. on the sidewalk outside an apartment building on West 43rd Street. The woman was hospitalized with serious injuries.

The NYPD says on Twitter, “Help identify the individual wanted in connection to an assault. On Monday, March 29th at 11:40 AM, at 360 West 43rd St, a female, 65, was approached by an unidentified male who punched and kicked her about the body and made anti-Asian statements. Info? 1-800-577-TIPS.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the video “absolutely disgusting and outrageous” and said it was “absolutely unacceptable” that witnesses did not intervene.

“I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what you do, you’ve got to help your fellow New Yorker. If you see someone being attacked, do whatever you can. Make noise. Call out what’s happening. Go and try and help. Immediately call for help. Call 911. This is something where we all have to be part of the solution. We can’t just stand back and watch a heinous act happening,” said Bill de Blasio.

The Black man told the Asian woman: “Fuck you, you don’t belong here.” In response, Asian-Americans are using social media to say: “I’m Asian American and I belong here.”

Former US attorney Preet Bharara says, “I’m Asian American and I belong here.” Asian American Federation says, “We are Asian American and we belong here.”

In the video, three men (who look Black) can be seen standing in the building’s lobby watching but doing nothing to stop the attack or help the woman. The men inside the building closed the front door, while the Asian woman remains on the ground as the Black man walks away. Watch the video below.

Borough president of Manhattan, Gale A. Brewer says, “There must be accountability on behalf of the woman attacked outside of 360 W. 43rd Street; the increased amount of anti-Asian rhetoric & violence against our Asian brothers and sisters must stop. We must all commit ourselves to the safety of Asian Americans, & all New Yorkers.”

On Saturday, March 27, 2021, a Black man violently beat up an Asian male in a Manhattan Bound (J) train at Kosciuszko Street Station in Brooklyn, choked him afterwards until he is unconscious. Apparently, the African-American man stole from the Asian man what appears to be an Apple bag after he choked him out.

The NYPD says on Twitter, “Sat, 3/27/21, approx. 8:00 PM, ‘J’ Train at Kosciuszko Station, the perpetrator (a Black man) assaulted a male victim (Asian man). Call 1-800-577-8477. Reward up to $2,500 payable by Crime Stoppers upon arrest and indictment of the person(s) responsible for the above listed crime.”

On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, at approximately 11:30 AM. 7 train at Roosevelt and Willits Pt Blvd. The Black man suspect used anti-Asian slurs at an Asian female; then he smashed her phone when she started recording. Watch the video below.

On Saturday March 27, 2021 at approximately 8:45 PM inside of the East 51 St and Lexington avenue subway. The NYPD is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a Black male for questioning in connection to an anti-Asian aggravated harassment. Watch the video below.

On Sunday, March 21st, 2021. At 5:20 PM at 41-25 Kissena Blvd, a 34-year-old Asian male, had his phone smacked out of his hand, causing damage to the phone. I do not know if the attacker is a Black man or a Latino man. Watch the video below.

According to the NYPD, on Sunday, March 21, 2021, at 11:37 AM near 51 Astor Place in Manhattan, a female 37, was en route to an Anti-Asian Violence protest. A Black male asked for the sign that she was carrying, and then stomped on it. The woman asked the African-American man why he did that, then he punched her twice in the face. The NYPD says on Twitter that the Black man has been “APPREHENDED and charged with a HATE CRIME.”

According to the organization Stop AAPI Hate, roughly 3,800 hate crimes against Asian Americans have been reported in the U.S. from March 2020 to February 2021. 

“This report covers the 3,795 incidents received by the Stop AAPI Hate reporting center from March 19, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The number of hate incidents reported to our center represent only a fraction of the number of hate incidents that actually occur, but it does show how vulnerable Asian Americans are to discrimination, and the types of discrimination they face,” says Stop AAPI Hate on stopaapihate.org.

In March 2021, a gunman killed eight people, including six women of Asian descent in the Atlanta area.

 On Monday, March 29, 2021, BTS said in a press release: “We send our deepest condolences to those who have lost their loved ones. We feel grief and anger.

We recall moments when we faced discrimination as Asians. We have endured expletives without reason and were mocked for the way we look. We were even asked why Asians spoke in English.

We cannot put into words the pain of becoming the subject of hatred and violence for such reason. Our own experiences are inconsequential compared to the events that have occurred over the past few weeks. But these experiences are enough to make us feel powerless and chip away our self-esteem.

What is happening right now cannot be disassociated from our identity as Asians. It required considerable time for us to discuss this carefully and we contemplated deeply on how we should voice our message.

But what our voice must convey is clear.

We stand against racial discrimination. We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together.”

The BTS members and activists called for an end to the violence and discrimination against Asians with the hashtags #StopAsianHate and #StopAAPIHate.
