New York State Attorney General Letitia James has launched a hotline for New Yorkers to report hate crimes and discrimination amid rising reports of anti-Asian harassment amid the coronavirus outbreak.

James' office said in a statement that the hotline, which started March 23 and will continue indefinitely, will help provide resources to victims and could lead to civil investigations. Local law enforcement is ultimately responsible for any criminal prosecution.

“No one should live in fear for their life because of who they are, what they look like, or where they come from," James said in a statement.

Asians across the globe have reported experiencing xenophobia as a result of coronavirus fears, with several incidents involving physical harassmentPresident Donald Trump and other Republicans have referred to the coronavirus as the “Wuhan virus” or “Chinese virus,” saying that it's not racist to do so since that's where the outbreak started. But experts say such remarks could be fueling real-life acts of discrimination.

John C. Yang, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC, told NBC Asian America in the past that Trump's repeated use of the phrase could have a dangerous impact.

"I absolutely think that words used by him matter," he said. "Certainly use of this term by him and others even in the last couple of weeks have led to a noticeable incline in hate incidents that we are seeing. I do think that there is a correlation."

All together say:  "Awwwww"!

How many Asians have been strung from trees? How many Asians have been burned alive? How many Asians have been thrown to crocodiles? How many Asians have been called "Nigger?" How many Asians have had to go through an act of Congress to get a comb to get through their hair??

Shut up already, Asians!!! How many of you have little black babies flowing through your bloodlines??

Everybody cries discrimination that's not "white!" Somebody in EVERY race has fucked a BLACK someone or another.

People hate because it's something to do to make themselves feel better. Hate the Asian, the Black, the Whatever, when your ass is gasping for breath dying from Coronovirus. Take your hateful ass to Jesus!!  See ya!!

One thing for sure is, Donald Trump and the racist, fascist, southern confederacy that has TAKEN OVER the United States of America, has given other minorities in this country the freaking REALITY CHECK they have been needing for a Loooong time.

Donald Trump took office and just kicked there asses off FANTASY ISLAND from the jump.

NO ONE should be harassed, physically or otherwise, but other minorities living on FANTASY ISLAND in America only hurts ALL minorities in America.  Now, they have something other than MIMICKING White Racist Hate against Black people [who have, as a group, never did anything to any other minorities] to do when in the presence of or conducting business with or living near Black people in America.

I totally agree with you my sista.  Some Asians have mocked Black people from day one-especially those from China, Japan and South Korea.  Somehow they always thought they were better than us without looking at their historical spread of disease-much like the Europe's history of pandemic diseases over the centuries.  Plus Asians and Europeans have always alluded and considered themselves the same people i.e. Neanderthals.  And they have  a lot of social behavior similarities i.e. war against their own people/invasions etc.  But fast forward to today, Asian racism towards Black people is a reality.  They try to keep their skins as white as they can and you can see ( advertise skin bleaching creams as essentials ) in global news promoting their perspective about how they see white skin as the right [to passage] look for superiority-and dark skin as a sign of inferiority-even though more than half of Southeast Asians have "dark skin."  So I'm not surprised this is now happening to them.  See Karma don't forget.  And now what they have done to us  have come back to roost  Remember LaTasha Harlins- the fourteen year old Black girl killed by a Korean merchant over a $1.10 bottle orange juice?  And the woman NEVER went to trial for her death?  Well all I can say at this point in reference to the new Asian fear is check.....mate.    But!

Asians get those little slits for eyes rounded so they can look like white people. No one's happy with what they have. I've gotten to the point, I don't care who doesn't like me. I wear my mixed grey, non relaxed hair to my shoulders, put on some non-shine face powder, blush my cheeks a tad, mascara the eye lashes, smell good and look as good as anyone out there. I'm one of those Africans that one can't tell the age by looking. I'm not thinking about the haters. Don't say nothing to me that's not cool, because I won't hesitate to cuss you out. I'm slim and always have been. So what?? Never had any problems if I wanted a suitor. I'm beyond that now; husband and i have been married 35 years and are still going strong. I would have been married 60 years if I could have stayed with my first young whippersnapper. He made me a mother, and we're still friends. I'm not harboring hate for anyone. I'm not fond of the Orange Bozo. I think he's batshitcrazy. My opinion. One day either he or I will be gone. Nothing lasts forever.

Get a nice four80East CD, some Tony Bennett, Diane Krall and any other CD you might enjoy and chill!! It works for me. My tail feathers are a little rusty, but I still shake 'em!!  Yep!! Take a walk, exercize, call your love ones, friends, read a book. 

Coronavirus doesn't have to end your life. Hope for the best, do your best. That's all we can do. This will be over eventually. When!! Is the question.

  I agree with you sista Norland!

Yes!  We are still in control.  And now we can really SEE homeboy don't know what the hell he's doing!!!!  I DON'T trust anything that comes outta his mouth...  So  it's up to US to protect ourselves.  Seems like we are headed back to the old school ways.  Im glad cuz these young folks need to know how to cook, clean and take of their families WITHOUT waiting on the govt.  Black folks never did.  They survived.  And we will too.  Flu of all kinds have come and gone.  This too shall pass.  But this time?  We gon see with own eyes white folks jumping off bridges/buildings cuz why?  They cant handle it and do not KNOW how to take care of themselves.  Since coming here, they have had everybody else cooking, cleaning and take care of their kids...now it's time for them to GROW the fock up and run their own household.   But! 

  Oh I just thought of something.  Now we will see how these nails shop run by Asians gonna survive. Many of em are undocumented and live with their bosses-that's how Asian nail employees are able to afford being in this country.  I doubt if they can apply for unemployment.  I bet they appreciate black business now and learn the lesson that they should have TREATED us better when we were coming in their shops for beauty service.  Black women are gonnaa start doing their own nails like we used to....pluck our own eyelashes like we used to.  Some Asian shops were arrogant and mean toward their paying black customers.  So now?  Again.....check...mate!  But!

All you are going to be able to judge is just how brainwashed Black people are about their NATURAL selves. 

The Asian Nail Salons, just like the Asian Weave Selling Beauty Stores, are not going to skip a beat, because too many Black women are still thoroughly brainwashed into believing their natural hair is ugly, [and by extension their nails] that Black women who think like that will brave the Corona Virus, Ebola, HIV/AIDS, THE BLACK PLAGUE, THE SPANISH FLU, SARS, AND NUCLEAR RADIATION, to NOT have to wear their NATURAL hair [and by extension their natural nails].

But, if by some MIRACLE, these Black women were to WAKE UP, then it will be "Woe Is Me" to most of the White boot-licking Koreans here in America.

You're right.  Already America has the most coronavirus cases [81,000] in the world surpassing China.  All because folks are not taking this seriously and still are going to the hair and nail salon touching and breathing on each other cuz they don't think they can get it.   Brainwashing is right!  [And then we have these fools congregating at the beaches-dancing in the water doing stupid shit.  So.] However,   I am only speak for where Im located in Cali but since the end of February early March Asian merchants have been targeted in my neighborhood.  Even some at beauty supply stores have felt the bite of not  many Black folks going to their establishments like they used to when they heard about the virus -many supply stores closed before the shutdown [I think they did because they knew  what was going with this disease in their homeland]. Plus a lotta people are ordering supplies online and that could be another reason why beauty supply stores started having less  Black business.   But when more Black people start dropping like flies?  Only then will Black folks wake up. Hopefully by then it won't be too late.   Cuz  this behavior wouldn't be so pitiful if it wasn't so sad.  My people my people my people!    But!

Talking about ordering online . . . It's getting kinda scary that the biggest online sellers are totally out of disinfectant spray, and Walmart, and grocery stores look like they're damn near empty with so many bare shelves.

I see this getting worse, FAR WORSE, before it gets better because of the DIRTY-AS-HELL sh!t way Trump and his sick administration is insisting on trying to NOT do a damn thing.

This Republican dominated Congress should be disbanded for not doing a damn thing other than Fleece the revenues accumulated from American Tax Payers, for Wall Street/Corporations.  

And the American people should be [though I'm sure they won't] demanding to know exactly WHAT this "Corona Virus" REALLY is, and WHERE it REALLY came from, i.e., IS IT MAN-MADE, and WHO is responsible to creating THIS round of BIOLOGICALY WARFARE grade WEAPONS to unleash on humanity.  

The best Science-Fiction writers in the world couldn't have written a better depiction of Western EVIL, SADISM and GREED.

My daughter does my hair.  Little Apple Cider Vinegar befor washing, shampoo and conditioning. Comb out. Hair dryer, Flat Iron and cold plastic curlers. Hair Pomade, every kind of oil one can think of; and I use whichever one meets my fancy. Have a Marilyn Miglin Perfume Hair Mist, Tresemme Hair Spray. Works like a charm for me. Bought a bottle of Protein which helps hair and nails, take it whenever I feel like doing so. Rub a little mineral oil on my dry skin before I get in the tub and wash that and dry skin off during my bath. It works wonders. Get out the tub and baby oil yourself or Pond ColdCream your elbows and feet. Don't have husky feet; that sucks royally. Noxzema when washing my face in the morning.

After you do all that, spray a little of your favorite perfume on yourself and you'll be shining like a brand new penny. Don't forget to shave your chin, underarms and whatever else you feel like shaving. You'll feel like any fashion model and look like one too.

Oil your fingernails. If they break, they'll grow back and look super pretty with either clear or whatever color nail polish you chose to put on. Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed. You don't even have to have brand new ones.

Wear your own hair. Joy Reid has a hell of a time figuring out what the fuck she wants to look like. None good, to me. All the black women on TV wear fake shit. The one on CNN that comes on Sundays is pretty. Can't think of her name right now. Whitfield or something like that.

Everybody wants to be something they're NOT. After they go through all that shit, they still look like something they're NOT.

Be yourself. That's all one has to do. You weren't born looking like someone else. You'll always be you and no matter what you do to yourself you'll always look like yourself unless you doll yourself up like RuPaul. He's the ONLY one that can get by doing what he does. He makes a beautiful 'woman." That's it!! My hand's getting tired from all my babbling.
