act of violence against Asian Americans is racially motivated. In today’s video we’re going to go over the facts of what happened in atlanta. And then we’re going to try to separate the opinion from the facts. So you can get a clear picture of what happened and how it should be classified and at the end of this video. Hopefully, you’ll be able to decide whether you believe that this event was racially motivated or not now At this point in time, I think it’s important that we define what a hate crime is so let’s look at the FBi’s definition of a hate crime.

A Hate Crime Is A Traditional Offense

like murder arson vandalism with an added element of bias for the purposes of collecting statistics. The FBi has defined a hate crime as a criminal offense against a personal property motivated in whole or in part by the offender’s bias against the race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity. Now if a crime is defined as a. Hate crime that enhances the penalties that a defendant can face during sentencing now with that understanding let’s see if the facts support a finding of this being a hate crime or not the shooting spree began around 5 pm Monday at young’s Asian massage parlor in Cherokee County, 30 miles north of Atlanta. Two victims died at the scene two more at the hospital less than an hour later police were called to Gold Spa, an Atlanta massage parlor where police say three women who appeared to be Asian had been shot and killed while at that at that location.

We Received Another Call Across The Street

at shots fire that location was Aromatherapy Spa, where another victim who also appeared to be an Asian woman died now those are the facts, but the pattern is obviously hard to ignore as this officer said over the radio we need. to make sure we have any Asian spots now thankfully police captured this suspect with the help of his family. After news reports posted this person’s picture on television online. The family called in and helped police capture this suspect. This suspect ultimately confessed to the crimes here’s Whoopi Goldberg explaining it yesterday Robert Aaron Long confessed to killing eight people in a shooting massacre in Atlanta, including six Asian women.

He Says He Wanted To Eliminate Temptation That

was fueling his sex addiction. Now the police chief added this to the person’s confession these locations he sees them as an outlet for him that some things that he shouldn’t be doing and that an issue with porn and that he was attempting to take out that temptation so at the point this suspect has admitted to eight murders. He says he’s guilty. He says he did this but his confession. Specifically said that this was not racially motivated.

Here Is Law Enforcement Answering Direct Questions About

whether this was racially motivated or not. He has some some issues potentially sexual addiction and may have frequented some of these places in the past. He’s saying we talked about stuff. He says he has sexual addiction convictions but I’m sure you have to we’re just racially motivated Was this racially motivated the the indicators right now Are it may not be it may be targets of opportunity again. We’re we believe that he frequent these places.

The Working Theory Is A Sexual Addiction

issue rather than a racial profile. During our interviews. We asked that specific question and and that did not appear to be the motive so the question is why should we believe this guy he could. be making this up at this time we have two working theories. The first is that this was attack against Asian Americans because they were Asian-Americans and the evidence of this is that six out of the eight victims happen to be Asian women.

The Second Theory Is That This Man

is mentally ill with some form of sex addiction and the evidence we have of that is just his confession Now to determine which theory is more likely to be true. Investigators will now have to look at the suspect’s past. If this suspect had a violent or racist history against Asian Americans, then that would lead a reasonable person to believe that this attack was racially motivated. Now. I do want to put this disclaimer is that it’s not an either or this person could have been struggling with sex addiction and this could also be racially.

Motivated, But Lets See What The Facts

lead us to belief so here’s what we know about the suspect’s past at this time from the New York Times Atlanta. He the suspect checked himself into a rehab clinic for self–described sexual addiction. He was so intent on avoiding pornography that he blocked websites from his computer and only used flip phones. He worried to a roommate about falling out of God’s grace. The New York Times article then goes on as investigators pieced together whether and how racism and sexism might have motivated Tuesday’s attacks people who knew Mr.

Long Offered New Details About A Dangerous Collision

of sexual loading and what a former roommate described as religious mania that marked his life in the years before the shooting spray Mr. Long, whose church strictly prohibited sex outside of marriage was destroyed by his failed attempts to curb his sexual. New York Times article goes on to say the Atlanta Police said on Thursday that Mr. Long had been a customer at two of the spas in the city that were targeted in the attacks may have frequented some of these places in the past again. We were we believe that he frequented these places that killed eight people overall, including six women of Asian descent.

They Did Not Specify Whether He Sought

anything more than a massage at the two businesses, Aromatherapy Spa and gold Spa. The New York Times article goes on and says the suspect had told his roommates that his parents knew about his addiction and also suggested that he had lost his girlfriend because he did not stop visiting massage parlors. The New York Times article also goes on to say this once after the suspect had a relapse in the fall of 2019, Mr. Bayless the suspect’s roommate recalled that the suspect Mr. Long had called him into his room and asked him to take a knife from him, saying that he was worried that he would hurt himself.

Ill Never Forget Him Looking At Me

and saying I’m falling out of God’s grace so I think this paints a pretty clear picture of this suspect’s struggles before this mass shooting and this suspect frequented these establishments. So the next question is were these massage parlors engaged in prostitution just because the suspect says it doesn’t mean we should believe him is there any evidence of these massage parlors being any type of legal trouble for prostitution well here’s the associated press a tax boss had been targeted by prostitution stings. The star tribute attacks bars had been targeted by prostitution stings. The New York Times, the police made prostitution arrests at one of the spas in the attacks several years ago, so we are all on the same page. The suspect frequented these spas.

The Suspect Complained Of A Sex Addiction.

The suspect complained that he could not stop using the services in these massage parlors. These spas had a history of being suspected to engage in prostitution and the suspect confessed to the crime again. He confessed to killing eight people, but said the killings weren’t based on race. It was based on his addiction now based on the confession and the law enforcement findings.

On March 18Th 2021 Fbi Director Christopher

Wray told Npr. The FBi is supporting state and local law enforcement specifically ApD. The Atlanta Police department and the Cherokee County‘s County Sheriff’s office so We’re actively involved but in a support role and while the motive. remains still under investigation at the moment. It does not appear that the motive was racially motivated so do our joy questions Do you believe this was a hate crime against Asian women.

Specifically Meaning Was This Suspects Crimes Motivated

because these women were Asian Americans. Now you have the full facts now that you’ve come to your opinion based on the facts. Here’s how both sides of the media are spinning these particular facts. So first let’s start on the left side of the aisle. This is both CnN and MsNBc claiming that these crimes were motivated by race growing calls in this community and country to protect the memories of the women involved the target three Asian businesses and to kill six women who look like me could be me could be my mom could be my sister could be my aunt and then did not call.

It A Hate Kindness Dehumanizing To Say That

it is unclear what the motivations were is it’s it’s silencing it’s taking away our story. The attack on three Asian-owned spas in the Atlanta area is shining the light on what Asian-american women face in the workplace and in their daily lives. If you were to believe the murderer’s confession race had nothing to do with the killings. The son of one of the victims tells NBc news that is hard to believe you can’t say that this isn’t racially motivated you don’t kill eight people on a bad day. Let alone.

One Experts Agree They Suggest You Cant Disregard

race in this case given the historical fetishization of Asian women making them uniquely susceptible to violence now here’s took a question on Fox news explaining why they believe that it’s not based on Reyes. We don’t know anything about this. What we’ve heard from police and there has been no sense Whatsoever? That race played a role in this but of course, Kamala Harris jumps immediately into it to inflame America’s deepest wounds. Congresswoman Cory Bush did exactly the same thing. She said this attack was due to white supremacy again.

Police Have Already Said This Wasnt Racially

motivated. The working theory is a sexual addiction issue rather than a racial profile. During our interviews. We asked that specific question and and that did not appear to be the motive so the guy’s accused of murdering eight people and all the questions were about race okay, but notice it’s the politicians who jump in immediately to divide the country along racial lines. Now I do want to leave you with one last thing here’s an article from the La Times now here’s a woman her name is tracy Quan.

Shes.

a former sex worker and she has a very interesting take on the Georgia shootings. She writes that the Georgia shootings are a hate crime against sex workers and within the article she says this despite my Asian background, I find his dis a vowel of racism strangely credible like a lot of people. I experience bias and ethnic profiling, but I’ve also been a sex worker and I have encountered more prejudice, more name calling more fear, anger and hostility in connection with my sex work than regarding my race. So now you have the facts on one side you have the opinions on the other so at the end of the day was this a hate crime based on race or gender.
