8 lives were violently stolen. We stand in solidarity & deep compassion w/ our AAPI family in Georgia & across the country.— Ayanna Pressley (@AyannaPressley) March 17, 2021
Racism, misogyny, & white supremacy are a threat to all of our communities, and we must call out the targeted, violent attacks on our AAPI neighbors.
Asians. Your hurt and rage and perspective are worth expressing. Every single word. SAY it. SEND it. SCREAM it. FUCK the scapegoating. FUCK misogyny and white supremacy. FUCK the endangerment of our most vulnerable. And fuck you if you think we're going to take it. #StopAsianHate— Eugene Lee Yang (@EugeneLeeYang) March 17, 2021

“At least eight people were killed and another has been injured in a series of shootings at three spas in the Atlanta, Ga, area on Tuesday and one suspect has been taken into custody, multiple news outlets are reporting.
It’s unclear if all three incidents, which happened within hours of one another, are connected.
Cherokee County Sheriff’s announced Robert Aaron Long, a 21-year-old white man, was arrested at about 8:30 p.m. local time following a chase that led officers into Crisp County — about three hours away from where the first shootings at a massage parlor, WSB TV reported. …”
After a long hiatus during 2020, the media has finally got another nut mass shooter with the right demographic profile to push their favorite narrative. It is time to blame all White people in the country now, Donald Trump’s rhetoric and push for gun control to “do something.”
