What is it going to take for liberals to come to terms with how racism works?
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York City reported that two teenage girls visiting the United States were stabbed while seated with their parents inside Grand Central Terminal on Monday.
Arrest details identified Steven Hutcherson as the attacker, and he now faces charges of attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child, all of which are considered hate crimes.

Just before 11:30 a.m. Monday, two teens from South America were with their parents at Tartinery in the Grand Central Dining Concourse before Hutcherson attacked them. The 16-year-old girl was stabbed in the back, and the blade nicked her lung. The 14-year-old was stabbed in the thigh.
Both teens were rushed to Bellevue Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, an MTAPD spokesperson said.
Yet another black person has committed a hate crime while Democrats in New York and their governor are introducing reparations legislation.
Which should be an insult to every American, especially non-black ones. Where are the Latino reparations? All races were slaves at one point, and still so in African countries.
Why is it only black people who seem to be the recipients of this ” Make white people give their money away” scheme? Everyone should be insulted and tired of this same old song and dance these so-called politicians do right before election time.
S.1163-A/A.7691 Establishes the New York State Community Commission on Reparations Remedies and Acknowledges the Fundamental Injustice and Inhumanity of Slavery
Commission to Examine the Institution of Slavery, Subsequent Racial and Economic Discrimination Against People of African Descent, and the Impact on Living People of African Descent
Governor Kathy Hochul today signed legislation to continue New York’s leadership on racial equity by creating a new commission to study reparations and racial justice. This commission acknowledges the horrific injustice of slavery and will be tasked with examining the legacy of slavery, subsequent discrimination against people of African descent, and the impact these forces continue to have in the present day.
Hate crimes coming from the black community aren’t just targeting people who appear to be white, either. They are also affecting the Asian community as well.
Yet, we do not see the Asian community claiming to be “oppressed” in mass by conservative policies, nor do we see their valuing or glorifying being uneducated like “hood black culture” does with dressing homeless and speaking in loud ebonics. Black-on-Asian hate crimes keep landing in the news, and tension is rising due to the overwhelming pushback towards anyone non-black who mentions a crime committed by a black person.

And speaking of no longer investing time into racist black people and calling things out for what they are, I have started a podcast called The Divested Diary. Check out my latest episode, “Do not give thugs reparations.”
The episode begins with a clear statement: “Do not give ghetto black thugs in the hood or the women reparations.” While this statement may seem harsh to some, it is essential to understand its reasoning. Reparations, as defined by the NAACP, are meant to address the historical injustices faced by African Americans. However, this flawed approach will not lead to the desired outcomes.
To explore this topic further, I delved into the NAACP’s website to understand their perspective on reparations. It became evident that their focus was on legislative and political actions to move black people forward in the fight for equality. While this is a noble goal, I question the effectiveness of reparations in achieving this objective.
