21-year-old Robert Aaron Long, the only suspect of the biggest gun attack in the US since 2019, rekindled the “violence against Asians” debate in the USA.
The prosecutor’s office filed 8 charges of murder against the suspect, who admitted his guilt but argued that his attacks were “not based on racial motivation”.
The fact that 6 of those who lost their lives in the attacks were Asian women, brought up the discussion that the attack was a hate crime against Asians, although the suspect said otherwise. Bee Nguyen, of Vietnamese origin, the Deputy of Georgia State Assembly, said in a statement that the attack in question took place in the triangle of “gender-based violence, xenophobia and misogyny” and that these were not ordinary murders.
While the information that the suspect used racist expressions against China due to the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic in his social media accounts was reflected in the media, it was reported that there was concern about the increase of similar attacks against Asians living in the USA.

Robert Aaron Long, who attacked 3 massage parlors in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, the night before, shot dead 8 people, 6 of them Asian women.
Related to the issue, White House Spokesperson Jen Psaki stated that discourses such as the “Wuhan virus” used by the Donald Trump administration for Kovid-19 were effective in the increasing hate crimes against Asian Americans in the country.
Biden also stated that the attacks were “very worrying” and that the attacks against Asians in the country did not match American values.
