One, blacks’ history with whites is no fucking excuse for assaulting and abusing Asians at school and on the street. It is fucking racism against Asians from blacks pure and simple.
Two, simply opening a store in a black area is oppressing blacks? What kind of economics is that? If Asians knew they needed to stay away from black areas they would never have invested their money there. BTW, those stores owners are almost always first gen immigrants who don’t know better. The American-Born gen, after seeing their parents harassed, robbed and assaulted in those places tend to stay away. We don’t want to oppress you by investing and providing services which enriches every other neighborhood eccept the black ones. Seriously, what kind of fucking economics is this shit?
I'm not saying those Asians know better. I'm not saying they deserve to have their businesses looted and destroyed. They moved to America with pure intentions - a better life for themselves and their children.
But the way you and others frame these situations of businesses being targeted is completely false. Black people aren't lashing out against Asian people, they're lashing out against the circumstances put upon them by decades of exploitation. it just so happens that asian americans have set themselves up in many of their communities so they become the target.
And yes opening a store does harm the community. If you look at the businesses opened, they're nothing but a drain on the local communities. But this isn't something Asians created. They're just following the capitalist model that existed before their arrival. In a poor black area, you'll find plenty of fast food restaurants, payday lenders, liquor stores, and beauty supplies, all owned by outsiders who take all their earnings out of the neighborhood. What you will never find is a good school, a library, a hospital, and other typical pillars of "good" neighborhoods. Can you imagine how frustrating that must be for the people who live there? Everyone is willing to take their money but no one is willing to spend money to uplift the community.
An Asian immigrant might open a store up with the best of intentions but that doesn't undo the fact that they are participating in an exploitative system.
