Lots of hate crimes have been going on lately. I know, I know, the term “hate crime” gets tossed around more than Amy Schumer at a nightclub. It can be hard to distinguish the real from the imagined (see BLM Caught Red-Handed Fabricating ‘Hate Crime’ Story With Suicide Photos and Man Convicted in First Anti-Transsexual ‘Hate Crime’ Murder).
But this is as clear as it gets:
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating after police said a man made an anti-white remark and splashed a liquid in a 13-year-old girl’s face, causing her eyes to burn during an attack in Queens.
The victim was allegedly attacked after getting off a Q10 bus at Lefferts Boulevard and 101st Avenue in Richmond Hill around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police said the suspect came up behind the girl and when she turned around, he yelled racial remarks and threw the unknown substance on her.
As the teen’s eyes burned, sources said her aunt followed the suspect managing to snap a photo of him as he ran … The victim was treated at Jamaica Hospital.
So the girl was targeted simply because she was white. Sounds like the definition of a prejudice-motivated crime to me. Something interesting to note here, though. This report comes courtesy of CBS 2, aka local news. As of the writing of this post, the story has yet to make waves in the mainstream media. I suppose it isn’t as pressing as other more “serious” hate crimes. Like this one: HATE CRIME? ‘Racist’ Banana Peel Causes Mass Hysteria at Ole Miss. A Banana Peel!
Which leads us to a sneaking suspicion that, if the girl had not been white, this story would be on every front page. Like the banana peel incident which shocked millions of souls across the nation. Little girl victims are sad, but they don’t stir national hysteria like a discarded banana jacket can. The horror!
The left loves blabbing about hate crime hoaxes. Real hate crimes? Not so much.
