“The reason why we suffer from foreign oppression is our ignorance; we ‘are born in a stupor and die in a dream’.” Sun Yat-sen
I got a notification on the socials a little while ago, on Reddit “Asian American” precisely. I am not a fan of this head space, but what can one do to participate in our global conversation, but to swim with the sharks?
This is what I saw.
Upon reading about another Asian “crushin’ it”, I quickly checked the trailer……
Now I confess, I HAVEN’T SEEN THIS MOVIE only the trailer, so maybe there is an empowering message like Leu says. Maybe we are about to embark on a difficult but honest conversation……
But here’s what I also know, when White people feel singed, they create a nouveau class of social scourge to take the fall of the iniquities they’ve dispensed. Am I saying this movie shouldn’t have been made? No. Am I saying that we shouldn’t confront racial dilemmas which go beyond black vs white? No.
What am I saying?
I’m saying READ THE ROOM! Anti Chinese sentiment in the US is at an all time high. I’m not talking about a caustic comment here, or a spicy retort there, I’m talking unbridled disdain to the level of declaring China, America’s greatest nemesis, a role traditionally reserved for the Putin crew.
I absolutely can’t fathom why people have so little knowledge of catastrophic events which shaped history that still carry reverberations to this day. WHY hasn’t someone in our community bothered to read a damn book on how persecution occurs on a national level?
I’m not talking about the Chinese Exclusion Act or the lynchings during the gold mining era. I’m questioning the sanity of NOT UNDERSTANDING how “othering” turns into a sanctioned genocidal regime. How is it, that we can’t SEE what is happening right infront of us?
2 recurring motifs vindicating gratuitous Asian killings
Surely I can’t be the only one to see the iteration of scapegoating Asians followed by wilful harm exacted onto us right? How many renditions of this process must we see, before we start protecting ourselves?
We have reached the beginning of December 2021. It’s almost been 2 years since COVID-19 was callously maligned as a result of unsavoury Chinese cultural practices, yet WE ARE STILL the preferred face to bloody up. COVID-19 wasn’t the cause, it was the EXCUSE!
The following video is the SEPTA train attack where a young Chinese girl got beaten up by a group of African American teens after she tried to intervene in their harassment of a group of young Asian boys. The Chinese girl (I can’t find her name) is a supporter of BLM.
Under the video, I saw 2 comments which are worth highlighting.
Let’s address the first comment by Cheryl K. The lack of Asian unity to the point where we let fellow Asians who are defending us get beaten to a pulp, is cancerous. We are still at the evolutionary stage of “Fish” (response only) where others are already sitting in the “Reptile” nomenclature (plotting revenge and instigating warfare). We are even too bloody gutless to help those who HELP US! This happens all the time in the online Asian community where I, as a proud Asian woman would get banned BY OTHER ASIANS FOR STANDING UP TO WESTERN HEGEMONY.
Yes you can argue that the Asian boys (the initial group the anti Asian thugs were attacking) were “young”, but they were all TEENS. The teen years are when we are generally most obnoxious, with the erratic syncopation of hormones with the frontal cortex guaranteeing altercations, yet what do we see? Asian boys at the peak of hormonal vivacity being limpidly dead, too scared to do fuck all, except watch their Asian sister get pummeled. These are the SAME LOSER BOYS who later in life, would pen a 10 page disquisition on why Asian women swipe left on them, expecting sympathy. Go look at the usual “pro Asian men” sites, (livid Asian guys who always trash talk Asian women for dating White guys) are they talking about the Chinese girl who defended them? No right? They are EXACTLY what I elucidated in my previous post – jealous of the infamy of Asian women being desirable, because they themselves secretly salivate for White approval.
The second point by Corn Pop needs dissecting too. People who are less whitewashed, would rightfully point out that the reporting of the race of black attackers especially, is done to create division between the coloured folks. I don’t disagree with this sentiment, however this is NOT the entire story.
The “divide and conquer” narrative maybe the seed, but it’s not the fruit. The fruit of manufacturing a schism between Asians and Blacks has resulted in legitimate bad blood between the 2 communities now. The fatal shooting of Black Latasha Harlins by Korean Soon Ja Du sparking the Rodney King/L.A Riots, initiated a succession of racially charged events between the yellow and blacks. To deny this, is at our own peril. *By “own” I mean for both Blacks and Asians.
Who benefits from this? White people!
How many people today, understand what Ali understood? Not many that’s for sure. The great game of the races is now lost in a bog of nouveau political correctness, where unscrupulous intellectual deviants like Jordan Peterson has assigned a new sobriquet for racial awareness – “low resolution” thinking. Remember, when it comes to incriminating White people with RACISM, we have to get the name, DOB, timezone, astrological chart, DNA and the 12 apostles to witness the racist attack or else it’s just “low resolution” thinking. Yet the West has no qualms in incriminating China of conducting a genocidal raid as an immutable fact, eventhough THEIR OWN INTELLIGENCE SAYS THERE’S NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE to make such a proclamation.
Why you ask, would White people gin up antagonism between Asians and every one else?
Because White people need to pay their dues, and they want to split the bill with ASIANS WHO ARE DUMB ENOUGH TO FORK OUT HALF THE TAB!
I’m going to illustrate how much hatred is sitting on the fence, waiting for the slightest bit of degradation in vigilance of especially America. Every nation manacled by the Imperial West is lining up for a payback.
The most eloquent and opaque nation in seeking “retribution” is China. Xi Jinping is letting the West know that China is NOT the sitting duck of yesteryear.
“China has stood up. It will never again tolerate being bullied by any nation. Yet it will never follow in the footsteps of the big powers, which seek hegemony once they grow strong. Our country is following a path of peaceful development.”, by Xi Jinping The Governance Of China
Others are less subtle. I personally am championing for these guys!
Sharing the home with the world’s most stable network of White Supremacists, live the Red and Black children of America. Years of torment, oppression and ridicule has left a legacy of bitterness, marinating in every social and political crevice just waiting to be served up!
The Native American Indians have been trying to break out the moves to a “Ghost dance” since 1890.
“The Ghost Dance was a religion founded on the vision of a Nevada Paiute named Wovoka: he believed that if the participants danced hard enough and long enough, all the buffalo would come back, all the Indians’ ancestors would come to life, and all the white people would be buried.” Great Speeches by Native Americans, by Bob Blaisdell.
Black injustice has concomitantly produced a litany of grievances waiting to be made good.
“The Armageddon is gathering now; The sign is on every oppressed man’s brow: The whites who think they are ever so smart Do not know other men can play their part: When the opportune time is almost here Black, Yellow and Brown will be everywhere, In union of cause they’ll stand together And storms of the bully boldly weather. Their gases and shots, and their rays of death, Shall only be child’s play-a dream of Seth, For out of the clear, sleeping minds of ages, Wonders shall be written on history’s pages: Our buried arts and sciences then shall rise, To show how for centuries we were wise:” The Tragedy of White Injustice, by Marcus Garvey
If you read the above quotes and laughed them off as a silly pagan dance and another piece of impotent rhetoric, you are in denial of the pent up anger of these 2 demographics. White America hasn’t just had a dalliance with racism, it has firmly exchanged vows and consummated the marriage!
The American legal system has locked up innocent Black men like Alfred Woodfox FOR 44 YEARS IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT for joining the Black Panther movement, and only recently exonerated Kevin Strickland after 43 years of imprisonment for a crime that evinced no proof of being committed by him.
This is in conjunction with a compendium of lies told to the Native Americans when expelling them from THEIR OWN LAND leading to the staunch belief that White people are absolutely not to be trusted.
“….a century and more of deceit and hypocrisy has naturally taught him to distrust the paleface, through their unfulfilled promises and double dealing. Only as an exception has a paleface appeared who in truth and in fact was a friend.” The Quarterly Journal of the Society of American Indians. January-April, 1913.
In Africa the avaricious and vindictive nature of the West in its control of the resource rich continent, has given rise to a group of patriots who understand that their sacrifice only imbues their people to see through the hypocritical nature of these insidious whip masters. One day, the West will receive it’s comeuppance.
“Even if they succeed in assassinating me, it does not matter! The bottom line is that they want to eat, and I am stopping them. But I shall die peacefully, for never, after what we have succeeded in instilling in the consciences of our countrymen, they cannot control our people as formerly.”, Thomas Sankara
In short, White people are headed for a whoop ass of such epic proportions that the next load of shit they espouse, will be uttered from their butthole…. which will then sit firmly on their face.
So what do the WHITE WHIPPED ASIANS DO?
Clamour to pay the bill. “Oh dear White people, can we? Can we please alleviate your pain by allowing the centuries of vile racism you exercised on every continent of our globe, TO BE PARTIALLY COUNTED AS OUR SHAME? Anything to please you. Why, we will even call acknowledging our “racism” against Black people as progressive and taking a lionhearted approach in addressing our inner demons! Did we do good?” – quickly runs to fetch the arsenic laced stick our whip master throws for our panting pleasure. Fetch beta!
You PATHETIC, hebetudinous dumbshits originating from the East. YOU of all people who is contemporaneously getting your head smashed to the floor, with your Grandma receiving a baseball bat to her face, GENUINELY think it’s a good thing to say WE ARE RACIST TO BLACK PEOPLE DURING AN ASIAN INFERNO?
WHEN were we EVER racist to black people BEFORE WHITE INDOCTRINATION? Go rummage through the history books, you stale pieces of unthinking dolts! You think you are being original in addressing this issue NOW? You want to bowdlerize white atrocity because you think you are not bludgeoned enough? You *every expletive under the sun*, are playing EXACTLY into the hands of the most sanguineous and self righteous tyrants who ever roamed the earth!
This is the exact tactic HITLER USED right before building his bloody ovens!
“The broad masses of a nation are not made up of professors and diplomats. Since these masses have only a poor acquaintance with abstract ideas, their reactions lie more in the domain of the feelings, where the roots of their positive as well as their negative attitudes are implanted. They are susceptible only to a manifestation of strength which comes definitely either from the positive or negative side, but they are never susceptible to any half-hearted attitude that wavers between one pole and the other”. The world’s most infamous Führer.
Surely Rei, you are employing hyperbole regarding genocides…..this is modern day US, that will NEVER happen!……And then you woke up!
“Most often, genocide follows sequential steps. It starts with the formulation of the idea that a targeted group is a problem and that the problem should best disappear. This is followed by exposition of the idea, its justification, legitimation, its adoption and implementation. Often there is also post-event rationalisation (explaining it away) and then a final step, denial that it ever happened” Australia’s Unthinkable Genocide, by Colin Tatz.
White America, by utilising the “Asian privilege” card, has surreptitiously reassigned Asians with equal REPRESENTATION on charges of racism against Blacks and Latinos based on factors such as average earning capacity, and the disproportionately high number Asian tertiary graduates. Now YOU join in your own public lynching BY ENTHUSIASTICALLY NODDING ALONG, agreeing with the anti Asian choir that we are indeed, racist?
What Leu quaintly calls Asian “representation”, is nothing short of a gladiatorial battle cry for an Asian and Black smackdown, leaving US in a mess as the white adjudicator once again, walks away UNSCATHED! The racial theatrics will pan out to be a White guy acting the part of a legislated deity, advising the bloodied and bruised Asians not to “hurt” the Blacks, as we ALL once again prostrate to White divinity and reaffirm the mantra that WE COLOURED PEOPLE CAN’T SOLVE OUR OWN PROBLEMS!
Hey shit for brains, are you aware THAT WE ARE DISCRIMINATED EXACTLY like the other “minorities”? We WORKED for every damn “privilege” we supposedly got.
It flummoxes me how innately we succumb to every white suggestion. Whether it’s the Japanese employing the German tactic of “simultaneously” declaring war as they attack, (leading to the infamous sneaky Asian sobriquet); to China allowing flagrantly Sinophobic Western academics such as Jordan Peterson to pocket a healthy wad of Chinese money (by editing out the inflammatory remarks in his book about one of China’s greatest contributors, Mao Zedong), we invariably bend over backwards to have a White face within our propinquity.
Dying again will be our fault, through our own volition
Whatever YOU as an Asian think you’ve done that warrants a redress, is not even remotely palpable. You are just an IDIOT in calling yourself out when you accidentally stubbed a toe, while your white “counterpart” customised a torture chamber to defile EVERYONE’S RIGHT TO LIBERTY AND HAPPINESS.
Goodluck believing in your “racism”, I for one, am not stupid enough to fall for it.
