This is why I’m not an advice columnist. I would’ve told her that her genes were cursed forever and that she should just adopt. Or have her boyfriend use a Caucasian egg donor.
Saw this article which talks about how pro football player Michael Bennett was arrested after Mayweather-MacGregor.
Bennett attributed his detention to being black. “Las Vegas police officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time,” he wrote.
He’s a football player, multi-millionaire, and MIND READER. It was at this point in the article that it occurred to me that I had heard the name Michael Bennett before. Who was he? Was he totally innocent?
How timely. I’ve had this idea for this particular short post in my head all summer, and today David Brooks published this: In Praise of Equipoise. Now I don’t know about leadership or crossing over to do the kind of outreach that Brooks is describing, but I do know that identity politics is killing this country. Both the Alt-Right and Black Lives Matter are filled with narcissistic blowhards who talk too much, and both are responsible for fomenting hatred. Asian American activism has been ruined, especially by the so-called Asian American feminists. We (the commenters on this site and I) have spent the last few years railing against the sickening disease of victimization that has plagued both the Black community and the Asian American leftist community, but we’ve done so mostly within the framework of being in those communities. It’s time for us and identity politics to declare an amicable split. So I’m done.
Aight, I went on a camping trip before the Charlottesville protests, and I came back to find that someone died at the protests and the world is even angrier at Trump for doing nothing for two days. Four business executives, including Under Armour, Intel, and Merck, quit Trump’s manufacturing council. David Duke tweeted to Trump, “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists,” which is completely false–it was actually the radical leftists, not the White Supremacists, who put Trump in office. It seems like everyone’s got it backwards.
I’m taking a quick break from my break because of the historic possibility that the Justice Department under Jeff Sessions may be trying to eliminate affirmative action. I don’t remember any administration ever taking this stance. With the chaos of the Trump administration, no one really knows if this inquiry on affirmative action will pan out. But as I said before, I always felt that Trump was the best candidate on race, despite the fact that he’s incompetent in just about every other area. This may be his defining achievement.
Anyway, Asians are finally in the news:
I’m sure everyone has been watching all the Asian women in the news. First, there was the sexual harassment case where an apparent Silicon Valley White rice chaser was targeting Asian women. His business partner was an Asian male. Then there was the irate African American doctor who murdered an Asian American female doctor in the Bronx. Then there was the case of Yingying Zhang, the Chinese national who was kidnapped by some White dude with a fascination with kidnapping.
Just wanted to alert you to this great article by John Pomfret: The Split at the Heart of Chinese America. The article addresses affirmative action, Peter Liang, and all the other issues where there is a large split between recent Chinese immigrants and multi-generational ABC’s. It’s a really interesting article. John Pomfret is fluent in Chinese and has spent much of his career studying China.
I couldn’t stop watching the video above. It’s like victim porn. An old Asian dude called Uncle Pao gets jumped by a by a bunch of teenagers. Instead of reacting with “why are those violent thugs jumping my uncle,” Uncle Pao’s middle-aged nephew Leng Xiong takes the blame. Taking the side of the kids, he says that he’d like to know where “us as a community failed them.” He says that it could be dangerous if these kids ran into the “wrong person” and they had a Trayvon Martin type of situation. He finishes with, “How can we help you? Let us help you.” Y’all know what I’ve said about Protected Minorities and personal responsibility according to the media, but just so we’re on the same page, let me unpack this.
Well, so much for that.
This iteration of the comic book saw Black Panther and other black superheroes in the Marvel universe such as Luke Cage, Misty Knight, Storm and the former Avenger Manifold, trying to solve the death of a black woman named Ezra Keith who dies in police custody.
Keith’s death is reminiscent of the real life death of Sandra Bland.
The comic book takes place in near-future New York, where Harlem is placed under martial law.
