Chinese Girl in the Ghetto

Pages: 1 2

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Ying Ma, a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. She is the author of the new book, Chinese Girl in the Ghetto , which has been endorsed by Ward Connerly, Founder and President of the American Civil Rights Institute and the man who has led the fight to end state-sponsored racial quotas and preferences across the country; and by Xiao Qiang, Adjunct Professor at the University of California at Berkeley and a prominent Chinese human rights activist.

FP: Ying Ma, welcome to Frontpage Magazine.

Tell us about your new book.

Ying Ma: Thank you Jamie.

The book, at its most basic level, is a story about a little girl’s journey from the insidiousness of Chinese authoritarianism to the horrors of inner-city America. The story begins in China in the late 1970s, where economic reforms are rapidly transforming the country into a more hopeful, more colorful place, and where our protagonist immerses herself in a world of fantasy and foreign influences while grappling with the mundane vagaries of Communist rule. In the mid-1980s, she happily immigrates to Oakland, California, expecting her new life to be far better in all ways than life in China. Instead, she discovers crumbling schools, unsafe streets, and racist people. In the land of the free, she comes of age amid the dysfunction of a city’s brokenness and learns to hate in the shadows of urban decay. The book is a story about her journey and how she prevailed.

FP: And that little girl is you, you’re the Chinese girl in the ghetto.

YM: Yes, the book is autobiographical. It is about my family’s journey from Guangzhou, China’s third largest city, to inner-city Oakland, California.

FP: On your website, you refer to the book as “a politically incorrect memoir.” What makes it politically incorrect?

YM: The book is politically incorrect mainly in a couple of ways. For one, it makes clear, through my experiences, that racial minorities are capable of profound racism. As you know, this is a politically incorrect thing to say because our political culture often views minorities, especially blacks and Hispanics, as victims of racism who are incapable of being racists. When individuals from these groups commit racist acts, people have a tendency to look away. This is outrageous not only for the targets of racism, but it is also unfortunate for those behaving in a racist manner because they’re never held to the same standards of personal responsibility and decency as others. In my book, I don’t look away, and my hope is that the book will help shatter the hypocrisy and the soft bigotry of low expectations commonly found in this country’s racial discourse.

FP: Tell us some other ways in which your book is politically incorrect.

YM: The political correctness that prevents people from acknowledging ghetto racism has a flip side:  it advocates special treatment for racial minorities. Both are premised on the assumption that certain racial minorities are perpetual victims who can never stand on their own two feet.

My book delivers a very different message. It tells a story about an immigrant family that arrives in America without English skills or financial resources. The parents work in menial jobs, at first earning less than minimum wage. Their two children wear clothing purchased from Goodwill or handed down from their relatives. The family uses second-hand furniture and at first, each of the children sleeps on half of a bed—one on the mattress and the other on the box springs. But five years after arriving in America, the family achieves home ownership, albeit in a bad neighborhood. A few years after that, one of the children makes her way into an Ivy League university.

There is nothing inevitable about this story. At each stage, someone exercises a personal choice. The mother who was once a school teacher in China chooses to become a seamstress in a sweatshop in America instead of letting her children go hungry. The daughter chooses to study day and night instead of skipping school or otherwise spending time “on the streets.” The family chooses to save for home ownership rather than splurging on fancier clothing or better snacks. Because of their choices, this family makes its way out of an impoverished and crime-filled ghetto.

I hope that after reading this story, people will recognize that no matter how underprivileged a child is in America, this country is a land of abundant opportunities and one can succeed without racial preferences, pandering from politicians, an endless slew of government handouts or all the supposed benefits sought by the racial grievance industry.

A story like this should not be politically incorrect, but if you think about the policy implications of the story, then many of our public policies based on the ideology of victimhood look a lot like hogwash. In many ways, these implications are perhaps even more politically incorrect than an honest discussion of ghetto racism.

FP: On ghetto racism, can you tell us more about how Asians come in contact with it and how you yourself have experienced it?

YM: It is quite common for Asians who are in America’s major urban centers to be at the receiving end of racism. For me growing up in Oakland, encountering racism from blacks, and to a lesser extent, Hispanics, was a regular phenomenon, and a daily occurrence in junior high and high school. Asian people—Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean or Filipino—are frequently berated as “Chinamen” and threatened or attacked physically. While Asians certainly are not immune to racist attitudes themselves—one would be hard pressed to find an older Asian immigrant who would be thrilled if his daughter brought home a black man, Asians usually keep their attitudes private. This does not make the racist attitudes any less unfortunate (and these attitudes do improve over time, especially with younger Asians who grow up in this country), but they are clearly distinguishable from the very public and often physical humiliations that other racial minorities regularly inflict on Asians. For instance, rarely would you see Asians screaming racial epithets at black people in public places, or threatening to inflict, or actually inflicting, bodily harm against someone because he is black.

FP: Share with us the bodily harm you are talking about.

YM: There are countless examples of troubling black-on-Asian violence, but let me just offer a short list from the year 2010. In April, two black teenagers punched a Chinese immigrant, 59-year-old Tian Sheng Yu, in the mouth in downtown Oakland. He fell on his head, spent the next few days in critical care, and subsequently died. The same two teenagers assaulted the victim’s 27-year-old son before and after they assaulted the father. Between late March and early April of the same year, five black teenagers assailed five older Asian women, including one who was 71 years old, on separate occasions in or near a public housing project on the Lower East Side of New York City. In late March, five black teenagers surrounded a 57-year-old Asian woman at a light rail bus stop in San Francisco; one of them grabbed her and threw her from the platform onto the rails before beating her. The criminals in each of these cases acted for no apparent reason aside from the satisfaction of perpetrating a beating.

My book does not focus on these crimes, but the crimes I mention here took place when I was working on my book, and I note in the book’s introduction that my writing was very much animated by the grotesqueness of the attacks and the eagerness with which elected politicians, community leaders and members of the media dismissed or denied the racial element of the crimes.

FP: Expand a bit on black-on Asian racist crimes and crime that is racially motivated.

Ma: I hope that my book will bring attention to the plight of everyone, not just Asian people, who suffer from the ugliness of the ghetto. And of course not every incident of black-on-Asian crime is racist.

This issue of black-on-Asian violence is complicated, but we shouldn’t be afraid to tackle it. First, let’s break it down. There is crime, there is crime plus racism, and then there’s just racism. Sometimes, the crime has nothing to do with racism. For example, a criminal simply wants to rob somebody and he doesn’t care who it is, so he robs the first black, white or yellow person whose wallet is potentially full.

But is it really that simple? On a lot of occasions, Asians feel that they’re the target of crimes because they’re Asian or because of the characteristics commonly associated with being Asian (e.g., smaller in size, more likely to carry cash in their pockets, less likely to fight back, don’t speak English and are less able to seek help from law enforcement officials, etc.). So when criminals target them, they’re doing racial profiling, criminal-style. Are the crimes that result racist? Well, race is definitely an intrinsic part of it, even if it’s an unarticulated or subconscious part. At a minimum, such crimes are racially motivated, and there’s something really disingenuous about dismissing any racial element whatsoever when crimes like these are perpetrated.

Now when you throw in crimes that do not have a profit motive or does not create an tangible benefit for the criminal, then it becomes a much more serious race matter. If the criminals are not after money or sex, why are they just beating up yellow people? In the aftermath of the black-on-Asian crimes that I’ve listed for 2010, quite a few public figures argued that some of the attacks could not have been racially motivated because the assailants had previously attacked black people too. But one can be a thug and a racist; the two are not mutually exclusive; and we should stop pretending that they are.

This leads us back to my book. As I describe in my book, ghetto racism encompasses both the criminal and non-criminal. When non-criminal, racist behavior takes place in the ghetto frequently, without anyone batting an eye, one must ask: at what point does this non-criminal racism motivate a racist crime? In my book, I talk about getting into a fight with a Mexican girl in junior high school. I’m sure she wasn’t planning to get into a fight with a nerdy Asian girl like me; she was just being a racist and expected me to put up with it like every other Asian girl at our school. When I did not, violence ensued. So the question is: if you’re a teenager and you grow up in an environment where it’s okay to discriminate against Asian people, are you really going to think twice about punching a “Chinaman” for no reason? Probably not.

    A causal question. Will Ms. Ma appear on the Oprah Show? Waiting…………………………….

    • Juan

      And Oprah knows about this book? first make it known to her

  • gommygoomy

    She thinks SHE has problems? We've got the GHETTO in the White House!

    • Juan

      and what's your definition of Ghetto?

  • Jerseyman

    Her experience is a continuation of that of "white ethnics" from a hundred wrecked American cities. They weren't always "ghettos". Oakland, the Bronx, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, Cleveland, Detroit and many, many others were fine places to live, even if you were poor or working class, when they were white, but when the flood of blacks and now Mexicans took them over, ever aspect of civilized life eroded, beginning with public safety and order.
    Back in the late 50s and early 60s we moved from the South Bronx to the North Bronx and then refugeed out to the suburbs purely due to the rampant black on white violence that became intolerable.
    Like that song in South Pacific: "You Have to be Taught to Hate", and while we were being taught that racism was a sin, someone was teaching our black classmates to hate.
    It's a story so politically incorrect that it has been shrouded in silence, but I guess if you are one of our brilliant Chinese immigrants you are less inhibited by the white American's guilt over Jim Crow and slavery.
    That's whats wrong with the whole "hate crime" concept, blacks and Latinos are provided a free-fire zone of racist comment, action and crime.
    I wonder- given demographic trends, what the left is going to do about affirmative action when they run out of white people?

      I hear yah, I left beautiful Southern California because it is now filled with 3rd worlders.

  • Kai Chen

    Kai Chen's View on the Interview:

    Front Page (Jamie Glazov) interview of Ying Ma only reveals part of the truth – America is still the land of the free and opportunity. The other part – Many Chinese, though claiming others to be racists, are themselves profoundly racist and hierarchical. Confucian culture contributes greatly to this perversion. Claiming to be victims to gain self-identity, sympathy and advantage over others in climbing social ladder is the most often used/applied Chinese tricks (by a cultural mindset). To be continued next.

  • Kai Chen

    Kai Chen's View on the Interview:

    Ying Ma's claim of blacks and Hispanics being racist in the Ghetto is valid, but she omits/denies that most Chinese in/by their cultural bringing are also racists, if not more so. The bias that somehow Asians are only at the receiving end of racism in America, somehow not at the giving end, is entirely false and should be exposed as such. I hope Jamie Glazov and Front Page are aware of such a false claim.

    Individuals, not Asians, blacks, Hispanics, whites, are the foundation of American progress and achievement. Ying Ma, by her own lack of individual identity (She is only a "Chinese/Asian girl" remember?!), failed to recognize this fundamental point. In this sense, she is still not quite "American".

    • PhillipGaley

      I've dealt with various cultural representatives, . . . the Asians' personalities are quite ok, . . . their stores and neighborhoods here, in Oklahoma City are exemplary for cleanliness, . . . they aren't filling up the jails and prisons, . . .

    • Poppakap

      Mr. Chen,

      As one who speaks fluent Chinese, has done business in China for 20 years, and taught high school at a predominantly Hispanic high school in south Texas (as part of a sabbatical), the Chinese public exhibition of racism is exceedingly muted compared to other minorities in the United States. In addition, Ms. Ma admits the racism of Chinese people in the article above, but draws distinctions between the Chinese parents not wanting their daughter to date a black man, and the black youth who beat a Chinese merchant to death. Your comments show either unwillingness to accept the differences in cultural behavior related to racism (AKA political correctness) or you've got an axe to grind with the author. If it's the former, you've quite ironically made the case for Ms. Ma, if it's the latter, get in line. The comments section of FrontPageMag is full of trolls.

      Finally, using a comments section of a website to promote your blog is, well, "ghetto" marketing.

      • Kai Chen

        My blog is to educate Americans about China, Chinese despotic culture and what America will face in near future. Certainly I cannot express that in these short messages here. I again post my blog here for people to educate themselves:
        Your focus on what my motive is only reveals your small mind, thinking you know something about China as a foreigner invited by the Chinese government. You serve as a propaganda tool for the Chinese communist regime and you are not even aware of it. Pity. Best. Kai Chen

    • cocomom

      The author does not deny racist thinking in the Asian community, she outright admits it exists. Ying Ma describes the difference between the more subtle, asian racism to the overt, hostility displayed by african Americans towards her people and the common physical threats of violence that accompanied these outbursts.

  • PAthena

    So-called "affirmative action" is government sponsored racial discrimination arising from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which forbade it in all employment and established a government bureau to enforce it (EEOC() – utopian socialism. Hubert Humphrey was warned that this would lead to racial quotas, so he included a clause forbidding racial quotas, saying that he would "eat his hat" if the racial, etc. discrimination would become government policy- but he never ate his hat when President Richard Nixon instituted it as "affirmative action."
    Including "Hispanics" as favored groups was a consequence of black organizations wanting to extend their influence. "Hispanics" had never suffered government enforced discrimination that Negroes in the American South had.
    It is all a violation of the fundamental principles of the United States, "conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal," of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, commanding equal treatment of all. The bureaucrats of the EEOC and similar government bureaus, governed by Parkinson's Laws, are feathering their own nests and riding roughshod over the Constitution and the law they were meant to enforce. Money could be saved by eliminating these destructive government bureaus.

  • George Jochnowitz

    The song "You've Got to Be Taught to Hate" is wrong, alas. It's the other way around. Prejudice is the rule and not the exception. We live in a world where everybody hates everybody else.
    Chinese immigrants in America call blacks "hei gui" meaning "black devils."

    • Kai Chen

      Indeed George. It seems you know something about the Chinese culture. Confucianism is fundamentally anti-American, for it assumes humans are unequal by birth, by race, by trade, by age, by gender, by power, by social status in a governmental structure. Now through the communist regime's "Confucius Institutes/Classrooms", a neo-despotism has infiltrated American mindset – Big Government is a necessary result.

      • Ageofreason

        For two years I lived in Richmond, BC, Canada, a city next to Vancouver where the majority of the inhabitants are Chinese. Anti-white racism there is rampant. I once had a Chinese woman scream at me in a rage to speak mandarin rather than English. Status among the majority of Chinese is of utmost importance. I once overheard a conversation in which a Japanese-Canadian commented that the Chinese were trying to create what he called a "little Hong Kong" in Richmond. You can actually live there without ever having to speak English, and many do. The Chinese-language newspapers are owned by the Chinese government. Many live in Richmond with no intention of ever adapting Canadian (or western) culture, and many consider Chinese culture vastly superior to western culture. Many adopt a demeanor of false passivity and humility among Caucasians: I am just a cute little, helpless Chinese who needs to be looked after. Not all Chinese immigrants are like this, obviously. One Chinese man I spoke to was enraged by Chinese who drove expensive cars while sucking off the welfare teat. Cont.

      • Ageofreason

        In Canada we have an annoying habit of pouring taxpayers' money into re-creating or "preserving" Chinatowns, symbols of non-integration. Welcome to the wonderful world of multi-culturalism. The latest butt-kissing comes in the form of so-called "Dragon Boat Races." I wonder why we don't have canoe races or York boat races which would have some cultural significance for us as Canadians.

        • Poppakap

          Sorry Mr. Reason, your comment is rather unreasonable. Your use of anecdote to smear all Chinese is racism in its finest form.

          The money-wasting practices of the Canadian government are widely known, beginning with your ridiculously wasteful health care system. So to single out dragon boat races crystallizes your xenophobia in the midst of almost a trillion dollars worth of government frivolity.

          If sufficient numbers of Canadians wanted to celebrate York boat races and continually petitioned the government, there's no evidence at all to suggest sponsorship would not occur. Get organized and have at it. Patronage is still alive and well in western governments.

          Finally, your assertion that Chinatowns are symbols of non-integration is patently untrue. While the older generations have trouble assimilating, how is this different from any other culture or race? How many young Chinese do you know that don't speak English? Probably zero. In fact, they are probably the best students in your local school district, are they not? Compared with people from South American and Muslim-majority countries, the Chinese are models of integration and good public behavior.

          • Ageofreason

            I thank you for your comments which betray an intellect unburdened by knowledge or wisdom, and energized by passionate self-righteousness, but which have led me to clarify some of my thoughts. First, my comments are directed at those immigrants to refuse to integrate out of a belief in the innate superiority of Chinese culture which in my humble opinion has little to recommend itself to the world, a culture which denies individual self achievement and respect, encourages taking advantage of others because in China that is the only way to get ahead, demands self-effacement and docility, promotes collectivist thought and all that it implies, promotes the murder, imprisonment, and torture of its citizens, and so on, ad nauseum. This is the Chinese culture, among other crude and barbaric cultures, that we in Canada, and also in the United States are expected to promote, and welcome by legal fiat called “multi-culturalism.” cont'd

          • Ageofreason

            I suppose you could argue with some accuracy that what I have described is not Chinese culture, but Marxist culture which lies like a suffocating blanket over Chinese culture. On the other hand, Chinese politics have always been statist, brutal, and anti-individual. You are absolutely correct that the young people who are educated here are among our best students, highest achievers, and important contributers to our western culture as dentists, doctors, lawyers, engineers, scientists, and so on. That is a great and welcome fact. Where in my remarks did I deny that?

          • Ageofreason

            Secondly I must add that I came to know a woman whose face is Chinese, but is as Canadian as maple syrup, beavers, and back bacon. She is a 3rd generation Chinese, has little knowledge of the Chinese language, just as I know little of Norwegian or German, and is insulted with the term "banana" by Chinese immigrants (yellow on the outside, white on the inside). Her husband is an RCMP officer, and she was involved in sending packages of small items in support and loyalty to our troops in Afghanistan. I am proud to have known her.I have found that it is invariably the progressives, the Socialists, the leftists, the Marxists who are most willing to lazily sling around the terms "racist" and "racism". Among them, it substitutes for thought and the effort involved in gathering and processing information.

        • Supreme_Galooty

          In the late nineties, Vancouver, BC was heavily settled by Chinese who fled in advance of the communist takeover. In retrospect, this may have been a mistake on their part since Canada is every bit as communistic as China – if not more so. Since Hong Kong was part of the British system as is Canada, travel back and forth was facile.

          Canadians are wonderful folk, and their lot would improve immensely if they could only rid themselves of those dratted Frenchies. I wonder if the "Palestinians" would consider establishing their long yearned for state in Quebec. It could only improve Canadian politics….

  • Supreme_Galooty

    Every racial group has its full share of belligerent misfits. It cannot be denied by any rational human with eyes to see that American inner-city blacks have an over abundance of aggressive, violent, ignorant malcontents. It is no small wonder that black Americans are over-represented in our prisons, and liberal complaints regarding this completely miss the point.

    There may be numerous causes for this sad state of affairs, but the primary reason for it is a completely demoralized, depraved, degenerate culture. Entire books could be written (indeed, one HAS been right here) about how sick, how debased their culture has become. The roots of said deterioration can be found, amongst other places, in the American public school system, and in the despicable American welfare system.

    Free cheese, anyone?

    • Poppakap

      Unfortunately, you are too correct. Fortunately, an increasing number of black conservative activists are fighting against this pathology and finding sympathetic ears in their communities, albeit at a moderated pace. I simply pray we haven't already seen them pass the point of no return.

  • Paardestaart

    What a disappointing reactions to the Ying Ma's story.. I'm afraid it has become totally impossible to have a meaningful conversation on any issue involving racism, ever since it became possible to make money out of it or gain influence or privileges or leeway by emphatically belonging to one of the victimgroups..
    We have been divided and now are duly being manipulated and suppressed by stakeholders of all colour and hue
    All Ying Ma said is that blacks too can be racist; and what happens when people actually believe that only whites are. Oh – and she also said that asians are not free of the sin, but that they tend to keep their opinions to themselves – which is enough, as far as I'm concerned.
    Would't it be wise if we agreed that people are free to think and feel as they please, as long as the government and the institutions treat everybody the same?
    We have given 'racism' and 'discrimination' so much attention, that it has made everybody headshy and now we accept all manner of silliness and obediently go have our awareness raised if someone decided we have sinned..

  • Tab Numlock

    All races are 100% in favor of their own race except whites. Whites are 1/3rd pro-white, 1/3rd anti-white and 1/3rd neutral. Obviously, this puts us at a disadvantage. Especially since the people in power tend to be in the 2nd group.

  • andrea d. merciless

    The solution to this problem isn't anti-racism but genuine race-ism which acknowledges that races do exist and racial differences are natural. The notion that 'race is a myth' is a myth. Race is a scientific fact, and evolution would not be possible without it. Human races are like dog breeds. Same species but different subspecies. Just as a pitbull and beagles are different dogs with different aptitudes, temperaments, nad strength, blacks and Asians are also different as races.

    • Juan

      HA, I'm black hispanic (not confuse with half black, half hispanic) and I'm pshycally weaker than other guys of different races, I'm tall, slim, I have thin arms, and I tire very quickly when I run, so In what type of breed of dog do you think I would fit? your words are biased and stereotyped as many other conservative people who dares to talk about racial issues, always talk about what they you at first impression, but don't look at the details, if you were black you would not say such things, but you had the privilege of not, that's why you find it easier to pinpoint the difficulties and mistakes of others

  • andrea d. merciless

    I don't believe that blacks are naturally worse than Asians. But they are naturally more aggressive and stronger, not only compared to Asians but to Hispanics, whites, etc., which accounts for white flight and brown flight from dangerous black areas. Given that many Asians in California came from Southern China populated with small geeky Cantonese people, blacks living with Chinese in Northern California is like pitbulls living with chihuahuas. The reason why Chinese 'racism' is more private is simply because blacks are bigger and stronger. If a Chinese guy called a black guy a 'n-word', the black guy would kick his ass. If a black guy called a Chinese guy a 'c-word', what is the Chinese guy gonna do? If Chinese were naturally bigger, stronger, and more aggressive, it could well be that Chinese would be attacking blacks.

    • Smiles

      Blacks are not naturally bigger and stronger. It's due to Whites breeding them for 300 years in the US. Blacks have a larger population in the US so they can use group bully tactics.

  • andrea d. merciless

    To be sure, there is the economic factor. Due to higher IQ, more even temperament, and more advanced culture, Chinese tend to achieve more than blacks(or Indonesians or other Southeast Asians). So, Chinese make the climb while many blacks remain on the bottom. Since white liberals and Negro politicians told blacks that blacks always be the victim, blacks naturally think, 'Chinese must be ripping us off to rise above us'. But this sentiments exists also among Filipinos, Indonesians, Malaysians, etc.

  • andrea d. merciless

    Also, black culture tends to be very macho, badass, funky, thug-worshiping, ho-loving, etc. So, what is 'cool' among blacks is muscle power, big schlongs, musicality, and toughness. So, when blacks see geeky, flat-butted, small-penised, whiny voiced, and dorky Chinese–who do better than blacks do–, blacks feel contempt. But something similar happened with Jews and 'Aryans'(or 'big dumb Polacks'). 'Big dumb Polacks' and Nazi 'Aryan's looked down on Jews as small, ugly, cowardly, wimpy, and geeky and resented the fact that Jews were taking over so much of Western economy and political power.

  • andrea d. merciless

    Now, if we define 'racism' as blind hatred of other races, it is indeed a bad thing. But if we define racism as race + ism = belief in races and racial differences, it is a good, rational, scientific, and necessary thing in order to understand real reality and what is really happening. I propose that we call this belief 'race-ism' since 'racism' has come to mean blind hatred of other races.

  • andrea d. merciless

    Finally, why is the media silent on this issue? White gentiles are silent cuz of 'white guilt' regarding blacks but also due to 'white fear'. White gentiles are simply too afraid of loud and angry blacks to confront black problems. Blacks are raping and murdering tons of whites in South Africa, but nothing is done about it.

    • Juan

      So, are those black crimes against whites more disturbing than whites did (and still do) in South Africa? if you are going to denounce racism, DENOUNCE BOTH

  • andrea d. merciless

    But the bigger factor is the Jewish control of the media. Since Jews are also a geeky people who've been pushed around by big thuggish types, you'd think Jews would sympathize with Chinese. But Jews don't like Chinese–except Chinese girls who put out sexually–because Chinese are seen as world rivals to Jewish power and because Jews wanna maintain good relations with the black community to uphold the narrative of a 'noble alliance between saintly survivors of the Holocaust and wonderful/colorful descendants of slaves.' Jewish industries in music and sports also rely heavily on black talent. So, while Mel Gibson has been run out of town, rappers like Ice-T and Ice Cube, who said awful things, get million dollar contracts from Jewish moguls. Not only do we hear almost nothing about black evils but also almost nothing about Jewish evils. For example, we hear lots about evil Nazis but almost nothing about evil Jewish commies who were instrumental in the killing of millions of Christian Europeans and spreading communism all over the world. And we hear almost nothing in the US media–controlled by Jews–about the daily humiliation and brutality Palestinians have to live with at the hands of Zionist bullies and thugs.

    • Smiles

      Spot on!

  • andrea d. merciless

    Also, Jews find 'yellow peril'–along with 'Islamofascism'–useful in diverting American gentile rage and resentment away from Jews and directing it at Chinese. Why else would Hollywood be remaking RED DAWN with Chinese invading America(though Hollywood cleverly changed it to North Korea)?

    Thanks for the several tips provided on this website. I have seen that many insurance agencies offer buyers generous savings if they favor to insure multiple cars together. A significant number of households currently have several autos these days, specifically those with more aged teenage youngsters still dwelling at home, as well as savings in policies might soon increase. So it pays off to look for a great deal.

  • Self-Confidence

    These comments are all really ignorant, as is the article. Blacks think they're the primary victims, Asians think they're the primary victims, whites think they're the primary victims. And the least ignorant poster here thinks that American culture of individualism is superior to Chinese culture of collectivism – when in reality they both equally have their problems. Everyone's trying to gain the most sympathy points or the most cultural superiority points… you're all missing the point. This isn't a competition. Racism = competition. Want to transcend racism? Stop stereotyping and reducing other ethnic/racial groups and perspectives to nothing.

    Lies again, White liberals have given Blacks too many opportunities to prove stereotypes wrong. After desegregation from the 1950s we would have expected Blacks to finally close the achievement gap in the US. And 60 years later it's been just a waste of tax payer money. Other countries will and should overtake our economy given how much opportunities we've wasted.
