The Senate voted 94-1 to pass a bill denouncing discrimination against Asian communities in the US and creating a new position at the Justice Department to expedite reviews of potential Covid-19-related hate crimes. The bill would also direct the departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to raise awareness of hate crimes during the pandemic and work with agencies to establish an online reporting system. The bill now goes to the House before being signed into law by President Biden.⁠

  1. Did they really? The Senate is so concerned about minorities. That’s so nice of them. Now let’s talk reparations for the descendants of slaves, Jim Crow, lynchings etc etc etc

  2. How do you even have to have a law against something that should be a given! Hate crimes are wrong period. You shouldn’t have to make a law- and then why distinguish between types of hate crime?! – so some are ok and some are against the law? And who is this disgusting human that voted against it! He should be prosecuted immediately for that alone! SMH only in Amerika seriously!
