Infantalizing the URM

Thank you, Aardvark, for posting the story above. An 33-year-old Underrepresented Minority (URM) named Montress Gomez was harassing a female waitress in Chinatown, and the owner of the restaurant, a 50-year-old Chinese man named Qang Wang, asked him to stop. The harasser punched a hole in the wall of the restaurant and left. When the owner followed him outside, the harasser beat the crap out of him. You can see the video above.

Now Aardvark asked whether leftist Social Justice Warriors (SJW’s) would speak out against this. If Black Lives Matter, then do all lives matter? The answer, of course, is no–at least not according to most SJW’s. First of all, SJW’s don’t ever say anything to suggest that URM’s take any kind of personal responsibility. In their worldview, personal responsibility is only for Whitey and Chang. In their opinion, to suggest anything else would be racist.

Second of all, c’mon, it’s only a Chinaman! When was the last time you saw any leftist SJW stand up for a Chinaman? If anything, your average SJW sees a story like this and asks whether the Chinaman might be at fault, whether there might be a reason to Pin the Tail on the Asian male. Did this restaurant owner follow Montress around the store? Was this immigrant respectful of the multicultural ways in which Montress may have been expressing himself? Perhaps the service was so bad that Chang deserved to have his wall punched in. Maybe it was just revenge for Peter Liang, kind of like an Asian Reginald Denny. Maybe Montress was just as angry at the history of footbinding as Maxine Hong Kingston. Hell, maybe Montress was trying to rescue that female waitress. Let’s make a movie about it. As they often (selectively) say in SJW circles, “you don’t know the full story!”

Anyway, what I do know is that I don’t understand why so many of those dudes are just standing around in the video and watching. Finally one brave soul (a Chinese guy too) walks over to Montress and asks him to stop. Montress just walks away. It was that easy.

I will say this: I think that it makes no sense to infantalize entire races of people. Things won’t get better until everyone is treated equally by the media and by activists. SJW’s may think it’s helpful to excuse bad behavior by URM’s and to blame all the world’s ills on Chang, but judging people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character only serves to undermine any chance at improving the lives of the people they say they support.

  1. Infuriating as it is, the video is just not fucking loading for me, so I had better hold back comments.

  2. HOLY SHIT MOTHERFUCKING BASTARDS

    This Monster Gomez guy wasn’t even fucking competent in beating up a guy flat on his back on the ground. You could take three pops for free before retaliating and still come out alright, BUT FOR FUCK’S SAKE

    1. NEVER LET SOMEONE KICK YOU IN THE HEAD OR FACE. NEVER! HOLY SHIT! You are dealing with a drunk, not a killer!

    2. Every Chinese son of a BITCH that just stood there to watch. YOU ARE NOT FUCKING CHINESE ANYMORE. I will fucking SMACK you myself just for fun!

    3. If this is the fucking best you can do then the Chinese in America needs to be FUCKING KILLED OFF as a fucking mercy!

  3. LOL As much we might try to make jokes about it, it’s not far fetched somebody’s already planning to make a movie about this and “racebending” Gomez with Ben Affleck a la Argo with Ken Jeong as Wang.

    When people even like AM directors makes stories about how the AF is repressed and the WM is trying to rescue her from the broken Engrish sexist AM owner, you know there’s not much “creativity” in the APIA filmmaking community. I’m sure they’ll also throw in a few shipping cargo containers of other AFs needing to be rescued and shoot the evil AM snakeheads at the end.

    On a serious note, I think the reason why the bystanders refused to act is how they’re normally are in the old countries. Sadly I think there’s some truth to the Asian passivity stereotype and that’s why we’re seen as “easy targets.”

  4. From just the video, I can’t conclude anything racial.

    But there has been many well documented racist attacks by Blacks on elderly Asians. Where are the protest marches from Black leaders?

    People should just stop using POC when it is Blacks all along. I just don’t understand why so many 2nd generation Asian kids internalize White guilt, and willing to give Blacks a pass on racist acts.

  5. @John Doe,

    I’m not sure what’s hard for you to understand the context and extrapolate from previous experiences:

    http://abc7ny.com/news/exclusive-chinese-restaurant-manager-beaten-in-video-speaks-out/1315807/

    Community leaders say just before attack last week, Gomez grabbed a woman by the arm at a business next door and asked “how much for one night.”

    Some say there has been a disturbing trend lately.

    The concern is that Asian Americans are easy targets.

    “If you call up a Chinese restaurant, take out restaurant, and you order food and they deliver to your lobby, the delivery man is attacked and robbed. Is that a crime of opportunity? Why aren’t you calling the pizza parlor? Because the Chinese man they know has a language difficulty so now you’re targeting Asians,” said Karlin Chan, a community activist.

    “I honestly don’t know CeFaan. To be perfectly frank it’s been a combination of people feeling like they’re easy targets, Asian Americans not reporting the crimes when they get targeted,” State Assemblyman Ron Kim said.

    Also, where’s the CAAAV on this?

    The common emasculation putdown is “don’t get your panties in a bunch” if I can borrow Snoopy Jenkins’ sentiment your Engrish needs work.

    FYI, if you only are limited to the video then you can’t say anything except it’s a beat down and leave it at that and let us grown ups discuss the pernicious US racist society and go learn more Engrish.

    You’re the exact reason that I’ve encountered plenty of times before of why I don’t believe in “the APIA community” because other than the vastly divergent languages and cultures, Asians like everyone else trying to establish their own social hierarchies and make life hard for others. I’ve lived in China and know first hand the intra-ethnic bickering between the diasporas.

    Lastly, since James Lamb promotes yomyomf I think he should go live in Jamaica and enjoy the tyranny of the majority of his demographics:

    I knew I would learn your master’s language better if I hang around here. Tell me, are your thoughts also in your master’s language. Anyhoo, “don’t get your panties in a bunch”

    I know you are a bit butt hurt but try to stay in context. I was commenting on the video. I haven’t read the news article about whats transpired the fight. Neither was anything indicated in what Byron wrote. So, try not to spin things too hard. Hard to imagine why you are so butt hurt …

    Hello, is there an echo in here?

    How many times do I have to repeat that the only reason there is an Asian American identity is because Blacks and Whites put that label. I was in Japan, Nepal, Spain, Netherlands, and Argentina (in that order) recently. I don’t recall identifying as Asian ever. People would look funny at me if I replied I am Asian when asked what are you? Every time, I tell them my exact ethnic identity because thats more meaningful unless you are a Black or White American.

  8. Do SJWs care about Hispanics to the same level as Blacks? It always felt like they’re an afterthought. Even when talking about affirmative action in California, which is about 40% Hispanic and less than 10% Black, the entire conversation was still about Black people. I just don’t see SJWs caring about this incident.

    Most of the people seem like they were around 50+ and feeble. Don’t know about NY but in California a lot of the Chinatowns and Asian markets have decreasing numbers of younger Asians and the average age just gets older and older. I can’t imagine many of them being able to do anything in a situation like this, though many of these areas have a security guard. I thought the manager in this video was younger but he was 50 too and pretty much got into this situation because he thought those meter maids were police and would back him up.

  9. I think in this case, we’re probably giving Montress Gomez too much credit. The assumption is that this guy wakes up in the morning and strategically thinks out a plan. “Who is the most vulnerable? Hmm…”

    I doubt that. This guy is unhinged. I would not be surprised if he doesn’t end up in a mental hospital. His waitress harassment, followed by wall-punching, and then an over the top (albeit incompetent) street fight, all points to the actions of a lone mental patient.

    What kind of guy walks into Chinatown all by himself in order to harass Chinese waitresses? Not with a gang, not with a group of like-minded buddies… but lonely solo? I mean, when have you ever seen a single Klansman, riding his one horse into a Black town? ONLY NUTS would do something like that, which is exactly what I think this guy is.

  10. On a serious note, I think the reason why the bystanders refused to act is how they’re normally are in the old countries. Sadly I think there’s some truth to the Asian passivity stereotype and that’s why we’re seen as “easy targets.”

    These days you don’t know who’s crazy enough to be packing, so I can understand the reluctance. Still, that is what perpetuates this kind of incident where someone thinks they can do something like this without immediate consequences. Someone could have probably taken Gomez’s back without much fear. Just choke the dude out.

  11. These days you don’t know who’s crazy enough to be packing, so I can understand the reluctance.

    Also, it takes a minute before bystanders could even see this as a racial incident. I mean you see two guys rolling around fighting, you don’t immediately think “oh, that’s a Latino beating up a Chinese guy. Races probably aren’t apparent right off the bat.

  12. Come on guys, come on! You see a drunk guy with pregger biceps stumbling about because he was drinking in the morning hitting a guy TWICE his age and you don’t even do something to stop this? You see a guy aiming KICKS at an older, outmatched guy’s HEAD and you just stand there like a FUCKEN SLACK JAWED YOKEL? Do you mean you actually stand there thinking about “SJW’s” or if this is a “racial” incident versus if you DON’T FUCKEN DO SOMETHING, someone in YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD that YOU FUCKING KNOW WILL GET BADLY HURT, and you DO NOTHING?? What the hell is this??!!!!

    Packing??? What packing? If you can think about “packing” then you should have the fucking sense to know which places on their body they are packing and if they have a buddy, a “shooter plus one” loitering about nearby. You will see all of this before you take appropriate action. This is a fucking excuse!

    This bastard was so fucking drunk if you kicked him in the ass he would fly with enough force and distance to chip his teeth on the asphalt!

    The truth of the matter is that probably nobody even needs to get fucking killed, hurt, or smacked around for being a fucking sissy. If just three people walked up and pushed this drunkard on his ass do you think he’d have the balls or the capability to fight just three people as big as himself, telling him GO HOME YOU ARE DRUNK! ?

    I can’t even understand what I just saw in that video. SON OF A BITCH! Fucking lousy bastard, a drunkard, not packing, no gang, no knife, alone, beating up and KICKING an old man’s head, and NOBODY does a fucking thing???

    WAT

  13. Yeah I agree that guys should have stepped in. Usually the thing to do is for multiple guys to jump in and stop the fight and talk the two guys down until you get the real story of what happened. I’ve see that happen plenty of times. But no, just watching as it goes on and on is not an option, I agree.

  14. It’s not clear to me how this vicious and vile assault can be interpreted as a hate crime, or be racialized in any sense. I don’t think that this disgusting violence has anything to do with anyone’s race whatsoever.

    Further, it’s not clear how anyone has excused Montress Gomez’s violence. I certainly can’t imagine who would. This person deserves prison, and everyone is safer with that guy behind bars.

  15. Seeing this kind of thing happen, even if just on video, is extremely distressing.

  16. “I think in this case, we’re probably giving Montress Gomez too much credit. The assumption is that this guy wakes up in the morning and strategically thinks out a plan. “Who is the most vulnerable? Hmm…” – See more at: http://www.bigwowo.com/2016/04/infantalizing-the-urm/#comment-322907

    Maybe. Yet, one has to consider that there has been several well known racial attack on Chinese in recent past. There is a general perception that Asians are a weak target. “Experts” have speculated on how it is assumed Asians don’t report crime, fight back, etc. What ever the reason maybe, the perception of Asians are weak and easy target exists, and quite possible this guy was working in that context.

    If that guys went and grabbed an Asian women randomly, and asked her nightly rate then its hard to dismiss race didn’t play a role in it. Again, there is a particular perception about Asian women in the US.

  17. I’d say that he was obviously in Chinatown… but as to why? I don’t know. What made him go to Chinatown?

    I guess it’s possible that he was at his home and then decided that he would get some Chinese poontang and proceeded to Chinatown for that purpose. Or he could be a massive A-hole who simply acts like that everywhere he goes.

    His actions sound very unbalanced you must admit.

  18. @JohnDoe,

    That’s exactly the quote from a nearby restaurant owner I posted after the initial article. So you’re just fighting semantics just for the heck of fighting semantics over bravado size comparisons? 😉

  19. Sengge Rinchen is a racist troll trying to incite violence so that APIAs are “profiled” in the same way he likes all minorities to be locked up in the prison-industrial complex.

    The video did show people stepping in at the end trying to end it. Believe it or not, just like the Lian case, people are sometimes initially shocked trying to figure out the course of action to take.

    The fact remains Sengge Rinchen uses this incident in order to further his racist troll tactics to name calling and shaming in order to denigrate Asians.

    So by this sentiment you don’t care about Gomez sexually harassing AFs in the restaurants at all? Nor do you care about Jared Fogle texting how he “craves” little Asian girls?

    Where’s you dense cover ever match reality of the situation? Nothing to you is ever what it seems because you either deny reality or is fabricating false narratives to suit your agendas against AMs.

    I’ll quote the 2nd article again:

  21. Aardvark, the very definition of “simpering idiot” defines who you are.

  22. Aardvark, you’re a child.

    I clearly addressed the disgusting violence covered in the video. That animal Gomez deserves prison for that insane attack on the restaurant owner. Whatever motivations this unhinged criminal Gomez had originally, it’s hard to tell from the video above itself that his motivations were racial.

    We just saw people watch as a man beat down an older man in the street. Situations like this are exactly why we need minority communities to be able to trust police, and to report crimes that happen to members of their communities. No one should be perceived as an easy target to criminals.

  23. Sengge Rinchen, the very definition of “whitey racist loser parents’ basement dwelling troll” defines who you are.

    Snoopy Jenkins, you’re a lying equivocator. Like I already wrote several times: you refuse to consider facts and only cherry pick your selection bias data to fit your agendas.

    The articles clearly stated Gomez was out to harass Asians. Even without the mental problems, NYC in general is just simply anti-Asian racist. Which is why you got the CAAAV with their Stockholm Syndrome refusing to even make any statements against Gomez.

    We just saw people watch as a man beat down an older man in the street. Situations like this are exactly why we need minority communities to be able to trust police, and to report crimes that happen to members of their communities. No one should be perceived as an easy target to criminals.

    How do you reconcile this with the Pink Houses and other NYC housing projects with their vertical patrols that you previously deemed racist and fascist? There are a lot more crimes in the housing projects the NYC government refuse to do anything about, similarly to LA’s Skid Row that the LA city government refuse to do anything about and lots of police brutality stories come out of that area.

    Unless you want vigilante “justice,” police patrols are definitely needed, but also are social funding for actually solving poverty instead of gerrymandering politics and divide-and-conquer tactics.

  25. Aardvark, the video itself doesn’t include anything more than a sick beating of a middle-aged man. Certainly other reporting may suggest different motives, but the video itself does not.

    Further, you make a very broad generalization to suggest that NYC in general is anti-Asian. No one’s suggested anything racist or fascist about police practices that respect the civil liberties and civil rights of minority communities, just as no one with sense wants monsters like Montress Gomez on the street terrorizing anyone.

    The problem is that when police use tactics that encourage minority residents to withhold information about criminal activity, the residents themselves lose. Given this, it’s important to generate positive relations between police and minority communities, so that middle-aged restaurant owners aren’t brutally beaten in the street. The only positive from this is that Montress Gomez was arrested.

    @aardvark,

    Throwing tantrums will not get you anywhere. I understand you are an expert in your master language. However, a humble Asian like me can only use the words “maybe” because I cannot definitely know what Mr. Gomez was planning when he got up in the morning as King pointed out, and also I cannot definitely be sure under what racist assumptions (if any) he was operating. I can only make statements like “maybe”, “probably”

    Now don’t get your panties in a bunch. Eat more ants, and chill.

  27. Aardvark is just a small man. Don’t bother getting through to him.

  28. Aardvark

    When your own parents passed away you just settled for the simple burial.

    Whatever was expedient. This was expected/ We couldn’t know where you would sail. We could only pray for the best.

    Whatever to get by. Just the minimum. When all others have died, you alone can say you survived. Because of your ideals and your ideologies. If the others couldn’t reach it, that is their fault. Not your own. Especially after you labored to spell the path out. Then ideologies, the beliefs, what you hoped would be the leftist fatwa.

  29. Snoopy Jenkins the equivocator wrote:

    If you want to play it dense, then we can use this same tactic in the future against any and all videos you post of Asian store owners in low-income inner city neighborhoods and restrict YOUR discussion to such videos.

    But the fact is you go to any lengths to DENY and DISTORT reality means you have your racist agendas against APIAs, especially AMs.

    By playing dense you can certain disregard other factors, but you must apply that same ideology to every incident or you’re just a HYPOCRITE.

    Further, you make a very broad generalization to suggest that NYC in general is anti-Asian. No one’s suggested anything racist or fascist about police practices that respect the civil liberties and civil rights of minority communities, just as no one with sense wants monsters like Montress Gomez on the street terrorizing anyone.

    I’ve been to NYC many times and can sense it in the air with interactions with NYC douches; especially from your “URMs” where one time a group of black teenagers was starting to mock me on the subway for not speaking Engrish and racial stereotyping.

    I didn’t even realize it until they almost got off, but from the looks of it challenging a group of them would’ve ended up badly for me.

    If I acted dense like you’ve done and confronted them, I might’ve ended up being “accidentally” pushed onto the rails like several cases of Asians being pushed unto speeding rail cars…

    Lastly, if you don’t want vigilante justice on the streets, then you’re at odds with Gomez running amok and then have police patrols IN THE LANGUAGE of the neighborhood. It’s precisely the lack of diverse police force and where white cops get off scot-free that there’s the problem of local neighborhood interactions where it’s been shown over and over to reduce crimes.

    The problem is that when police use tactics that encourage minority residents to withhold information about criminal activity, the residents themselves lose. Given this, it’s important to generate positive relations between police and minority communities, so that middle-aged restaurant owners aren’t brutally beaten in the street. The only positive from this is that Montress Gomez was arrested.

    WHERE’S YOUR DATA? You play dense on your first paragraph, but now go into all sorts of hypothetical extrapolations without DATA!

    Prosecute police brutality all you can, but make sure you SJWs go after the white cops and not just the easiest scapegoats you can find. And promote police force that speaks the language of the neighborhoods they serve and you SJWs going after minority police officers certainly don’t help your sentiments.

    Does your parents locking you up in their basement and force feeding you dog food and giving you just the internet for your outlet make you have any sense of human dignity?

  32. Aww look the small man wants to fight!

    He wants to fight… with words, and names.

    LMAO!

  33. Did they speak in tremulo and use fancy terms like “bystander effect” to misdirect people’s attention from the fact that it happened in a ghetto filled with ghetto peoples that enjoy violence?

  34. In the old school ghetto that guy would have been stopped. Don’t get me wrong… domestic violence certainly went on… but not on the street. In the old days he would have been warned once. Second time, he would end up in the hospital with several broken bones.

  35. Hard to say. It really depends on where you are, I guess. There are lots of places still where this guy would have been beat down. On the other hand, the are certainly a lot more places these day where the same lack of response would have happened.

    I remember about 10 years ago I was driving right next to some government housing and some guy was doing some funny (and illegal) turn in the middle of the street. When he came out of the turn my car was right there and I had to kind of swerve to get around him. Anyway he somehow translated that as me “cutting him off” and came racing after me shouting out of his window. Now today I might just ignore hime but back then… I wasn’t having it! So I pointed to the side of the road (meaning to pull over) We both got out of our cars. He had a friend with him. He seemed a lot less aggressive with me right in front of him but he was still running his mouth. I told him that I wasn’t here to talk and started stepping in on him. And then his friend started in saying, “This ain’t right, two black men fighting each other on the street.” And he went on about how it would look to people of other races passing by and on and on…” Another guy passing by actually stopped and agreed with him saying that no, brothas shouldn’t fight. Of course, they were both right and in the end, I simply agreed with them and got back into my car. And this was the GHETTO believe me.

    Why do you have guys like this in the ghetto and also guys shooting up the neighborhood with no regard for human life? I don’t know. I guess everybody has a choice and some just choose better than others.

  36. Proliferation of drug money and ultra-violent actors fighting and expending themselves to control territory and illegal commerce, with no regard for human life or the long-term, be it their own or for others? It’s happening everywhere in the world. If we can pinpoint the factors, perhaps we can be on the lookout and take pre-emptive action before something like this becomes endemic and takes root in societies.

  37. Agree, but those people are always a very small minority. There are FAR more people using drugs than there are drug soldiers. Much of the crimes are committed to get money to buy drugs, not fighting over selling them. When the sellers do clash it’s a big news story because the level of bloody violence is so unusual (in 95% of the places). But cumulatively drugs is definitely a major cause of crime and violence.

  38. A Tale of Two Cities

    I just wanted to share an observation this weekend that strikes me as central to this ongoing argument over societal resource distribution/accumulation and skin color and eye shapes.

    This morning I’m doing my thing and got a breakfast sandwich and is waiting in line. The employees are 3 Latinos and in walks this black guy who pretty much looks homeless and gets in front and wanted to get change for his $20. So the girl working the register looks at it and tries to see if it’s real.

    The guy looks irritated and starts complaining, “you think it’s fake cuz I’m black?” So she ignores him and looks at it again.

    He goes, “come on, I got somewhere to go.”

    She says, “sorry sir, give me one moment and ask my manager.” And goes to the back. So the guy starts humming to himself and acting off kilter. I’m getting a bit annoyed since I haven’t had any breakfast, but hangs on.

    The girl comes back out with her manager and he says he can’t exchange it because it’s fake. Then the homeless guy goes on a rant, “it’s fake cuz I’m black ain’t it? That’s racist. How you know it’s fake?”

    “Sir, I’m sorry but I got a machine in the back and I can’t exchange it for you.”

    “Fuck you racist m~!@#$%^&*ers. It’s cuz I’m black that’s why it’s fake.” The guy raises his voice.

    “Sir, you’re going to have to leave or I’ll have to call the police,” the manager responds.

    So the guy walks out and it’s a weird feeling that hangs in the air as I try to pay with my credit card and leave.

    I walk around for a bit trying to find a spot to chill a eat my sandwich. But no more than 3 blocks away I’m seeing this younger black guy getting into his Bently and his black friend getting into his Maserati; they looked like hip-hop artists with their bling and swagger. “See you later at the studio.”

    “You bet,” as they parted.

    So I found a public bench and ate my breakfast and thought about it and remembered the times I saw the haves and have nots when I was living in China and also remembered the Chinatowns I visited here in the US. And especially here in the San Gabriel Valley where oftentimes I see these nouveau riche “fu er dai” driving their Lambourginis and Ferrais with probably corruption money; then immediately on the same block I can also see poor immigrant working schmoes in their beat up Toyotas and Hondas, and even sometimes a few Asian homeless people and can’t but ask why God created idiots like Snoopy Jenkins that blames all Asians for the social problems of a white dominated society?

    Those two hip hop guys can probably more than help Skid Row people had they wanted to do some social good. And those “fu er dai” with their illicit inheritances could’ve probably more than helped their own over in China, but instead flashes off their wealth so that Jenn Fang and Snoopy Jenkins can go Strawman and spin doctor on “Asian privilege.”

    Why God favors some people over others I don’t know, but I do know that socio-economic problems are entirely a matter of elitism and greed in our oligarchy. To blame and scapegoat one segment over another over “racial tribalism” ignores reality and deflects burden unto others.

    They’re spending at least $10BILLION dollars here in LA to “rejuvenate” the public transportation infrastructure, and I’m sure some city councilman’s second and third cousins are thanking them for it, but similar to the Roman Empire and its downfall: we’d rather build lead pipes than create social infrastructure for all people to achieve their innate potential.

    Peace be upon you for this weird Sunday I’m experiencing. =]

  39. @King,

    Check out Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” for Portugal’s way to deal with drugs: decriminalized for everything and how it’s the lowest abuse rates in the world.

    Granted, Michael Moore “conveniently forgets” other facts and cherry picks his data, it still corroborates with other news articles. ^_^

  40. I just took a look at that myself for the first time. That’s insane. You’ve got three big, strapping dudes just standing around while the other guy is beating a woman. That’s insane.

  41. You’re the exact reason that I’ve encountered plenty of times before of why I don’t believe in “the APIA community” because other than the vastly divergent languages and cultures, Asians like everyone else trying to establish their own social hierarchies and make life hard for others. I’ve lived in China and know first hand the intra-ethnic bickering between the diasporas.

    I’m surprised aadvark is dismayed at his co-racialists, given his pro-Asian stance here.

    It’s quite obvious that many “acculturated” Asians have internalized a lot of self-hatred, inferiority issues and confusion.

    If you think SJWs just don’t give a damn about Chinatown, well, it’s worse when you have AFs who are the Hollywood Celebrity Types, speak on its behalf.

    And speaking of Eddie Huang again, his bun shop in NYC, is staffed mostly with URMs.

    Again, no one takes Asians seriously!

    You’re nowhere near as outlandish nor entertaining as Snoopy Jenkins, so don’t go distorting my position where none exists.

    I’m pro-equality for all and am actually in favor of affirmative action as it was originally intended: to promote the lesser represented candidate when everything else is EQUAL. The problem with URMs is they’re wanting functional quotas and affirmative discrimination, when everything else IS NOT EQUAL.

    I’m about calling out the racism on which every side, since I sincerely believe there’s only 1 race: the human race.

    The problem with this society of AmeriKKKa, is that I have no choice when other people only see me for my skin color and eye shape and I have to act and respond accordingly based on that REALITY. Wheres you got deniers like James Lamb and Jenn Fang that makes up fantasies about how the world works, I’m the ice bucket challenge wake up call to your racist trolling! ^_^

  43. I don’t care if I’m not as entertaining as Snoopy. I’m not here to entertain.

    If all humans were virtuous, and rational, only if.

    Asians would just give up their hard earned seats at the Ivies to URMs.

    Some Chinese Americans blame White racism for the demise of Gary Locke’s political career.

    We don’t live in a vacuum!
