House passes bill to counter rise in anti-Asian hate crimes

Lawmakers on Tuesday sent an anti-hate bill, intended to counter a rise in anti-Asian hate crimes amid the Covid pandemic, to President Biden’s desk. The House of Representatives passed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act with a strong bipartisan vote of 364 to 62, weeks after it passed the Senate by an overwhelming vote of 94-1. Biden has voiced his support for the bill.

I’m pretty sure it is already illegal to assault people. Adding extra punishment for motives is unreasonable.

Well, thank goodness we now know how virtuous the House is; having the courage to stand up and say that something that is already illegal... should be... um... still illegal. Truly, these are the real heroes.

Of course Jim crow Joe supports it, it will mostly just give a longer sentence to darker skinned people, who seem to commit this particular crime more often.

Joe Biden will always throw his support behind something that disproportionately leads to Black men behind bars

This law assumes that the 13% of the population that commits 85% of the violence against the 3% of the population gives 2shits about ANY laws....................... 🤔NOPE🤔

They'll change their minds once they find out how many blacks are responsible for the racist attacks.

This is a good thing. Unfortunately the Trumptards don't understand that motive plays a large part in criminal punishment.

Does this mean the police will be funded and it’s okay to arrest blacks again?

Laws written with racial language were never a great way of combating racism.
