The jokes about New Jersey keep coming. It has the third highest taxes in the country, yet ranks dead last in fiscal health. Its most successful residents flee.

Those who have never been to New Jersey still sneer at it, thanks to its mostly horrible depiction in the media, as in Jersey Shore, where a cast of morons defame both the state and Italian-Americans.

In a South Park episode, Stan Marsh rants, “Having neighbors from New Jersey is the worst. All night long, they keep me awake. They’re either screaming at each other, or making some disgusting sex sounds. It seems that all people from Jersey do is hump and punch each other!”

Living in South Philly for decades, I’ve had a different perspective on New Jersey. It’s where the beaches and boardwalks are, a vacationy place, and where South Philadelphians move to, an upgrade from their tight rowhomes. Jersey also has a bunch of charming and fascinating towns, Bordentown, Pitman, Moorestown, etc., each one distinctive. Of course, there are also hollowed out ghettos, and too many sterile, strip malled bedroom “communities,” with the local Wawas or QuickCheks their main social hubs.

After each Alcoholic or Narcotics Anonymous meeting, Wawa Warriors can shoot the shit in their favorite convenience store’s parking lot, with all their worldly needs just a glass door away. Driving by in the dark, you can still see them standing there, because there’s nowhere else to go.

Many Jersey towns are dry, can you believe it?! Luckily, you can always booze up at the very next town. My favorite bar in the entire world is Billy Boy’s, in the Pine Barrens. I wouldn’t mind just moving into that super fine establishment. They make an honest mashed, sell a dozen steamers for just eight bucks and their tacos are only a dollar each on Tuesdays. In spite of everything, there’s still comfort, quality nutrition and probity left in the world!

Oh, how can the universe not be eternally grateful to New Jersey for gifting it Frank Sinatra, Valium, John Travolta, disco fries and nobody Chuck Wepner, who actually floored Muhammad Ali (by stepping on his foot)?! That fight was billed as “Give the White Guy a Break.”

PayPal me, Governor Murphy! I’m doing my best to send clueless tourists your way, and I’m not talking about drunk Quebecois either. They don’t need no advertising!

It’s hard to believe, but I only have three weeks left in this country, so even Philly will dissolve soon enough, much less New Jersey. Last week, I likely saw its beaches for the last time, and on the way back, I stopped in Millville, a town I had never seen.

Before Mike Trout made Millville famous and cool, it was dismissed as just another depressed Jersey town, with one website, HomeSnacks, even crowning it as the redneck capital of the state.

What stopped me was Jenny’s Place, a bar with a wide, stark frontage, and a dollar store/Asian food market in the back. It appeared a supermarket had been converted. A large and mostly empty parking lot accentuated its barren loneliness. On the edge of town, it was surrounded by nothing.

Walking in, I found an old white guy at the bar, and a Chinese man behind it. There were three pool tables. The beer choices were limited and lame, with Stella Artois the only fancy option. Photos of happy clients, plus one of George and Laura Bush, jammed the back wall, above the liquor bottles. Potato chips, corn chips, beef jerky and sausage sticks were all there were to soak up the suds.

By and by, many folks came in, black and white, with most there to shoot pool, and some were awfully good, too, though none could beat Chang Liu, the bar owner. Casually, he would clean up each table, at the first opportunity.

A white guy arrived in a white truck, with “PRIVILEGE” in white stickered onto the rear window. On a side window, there was, “DON’T LAUGH… Your Girlfriend MIGHT BE IN HERE.”

A black biker showed up on an asskicking Harley, with rap liberally blasting “nigga,” which prompted Chang to ask, “Why you play that, man? What if a white guy call you a nigger?”

“My white friends call me nigga all the time, Chang! There is a difference between ‘nigga’ and ‘nigger.’” On CNN in 2013, Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, Rachel Jeantel, explained exactly that to Piers Morgan.

Though Chang’s dollar store/Asian food market at the back was completely untended, there was a bell at the bar to alert him should someone walk in, and a monitor to show when a customer was ready to pay. A convenient door between the bar and store allowed Chang to quickly run back and forth. In any case, it didn’t look like the sea of made-in-China junk had many takers. Jenny’s Place pays his bills.

Five-eight and fat-free, Chang had a scowl even when he smiled. Always ready to spring, he was like coiled lightweight. Although his English vocabulary was adequate, Chang’s accent was still thick, and he often chopped the s from the end of words.

There are many bars here. Larry, Bojo, Railroad Tavern, Old Oar, this place. There are five, but there used to be ten!

I own this place 16 years. I been in Millville 21 years. Half my life! I’m 48.

I start out in New York, then I move to north Jersey, then central Jersey, and now I’m here, in south Jersey. I had a store and a restaurant in Wildwood. Chinese food. I work for other people, making Chinese, Italian, French, American food. Making food is hard. I’m sick of it. The health inspector. It’s too much trouble. That’s why I don’t make food here.

ORDER IT NOW

When I open this bar, the people here didn’t like it. They say, “Hey, you Chinese and you own this bar?” They gave me problems the first five years, but you have to be strong. I beat up a tough guy. Once you do that, then they scare. If you beat up the meanest, toughest guy, then the average, the little guy, he think, I better not mess with that man!

Millville used to make glass, but the factories are gone. Two went to China. One to Mexico.

I have two son, one daughter. My son, they study at Drexel. Mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. My daughter study dermatology. She want to be a, ah, aesthetician. She has two kids. Her husband has a good job. She’s OK.

My wife help me out here. Sometime, I hire a local for a day.

I been here 31 years. If you want me to go to another country and fight, I won’t go. Why?! If somebody invade this country, then I fight, because this is my country. Yes, I’ll fight to defend it.

Ming Dynasty. Zheng He, he went everywhere, went to Africa, but did China take anything, beat you up, make you a slave? No! China help you. You don’t have this plant? Here is some seed. China don’t steal anything. China help you.

If China is big, and you are small, China can be your big brother, help you out, not like the US. The US used to be good, but no more. The US used to help people, but no more. Now, it bomb, cause trouble, beat people up.

Look at Spain. It’s this big, but it took over half the world. China is not like that.

I’ve been to nine country. Only in Asia. I don’t travel much. I have no time.

I don’t like people from Japan. When I play a tournament in Las Vegas, the Japanese guy want to shake my hand, but I turn away, like this. Ha, ha!

If you come in here, I serve you, be nice, but if I don’t like you, I don’t like you. I’m not going to beat you up, but I still don’t like you.

Japan treat Chinese people terrible. I understand that everybody is terrible in a war, everybody, but I still don’t like people from Japan.

Before, you send money to China, but now, they send money to you! There’s more money there. If you want to buy a store, and you need one million, two million, and you don’t have it, you call your relatives in China and say, “Hey, please help me out here.” That’s how it work now.

If I’m 20 something, I stay in China, work there, make money. You know the culture, the language, how they think. It’s easier there.

Twenty years ago, most Chinese restaurants in the US were run by people from Canton and Taiwan. Now, 90% of them are run by people from Fujian.

If I meet another person from Fujian, he will know somebody that I know, so we trust each other. We’ll help each other out. That’s how it work.

If a person from Fujian move somewhere, he will bring more people from Fujian. That’s how it work. All the Chinese in Africa are from Fujian!

Before, the Chinese government stop people from leaving, but now, they say, “Go! Go!” so you find Chinese people everywhere.

All empire collapse. They go up, down. They all go down. The US is almost done. When US go down, I go back to China.

I say this to everybody, and they all agree with me. Just ask them! They all say, Yeah, the US is going down.

    One time the University of Iowa's wrestling team was visiting the Rutgers University team in New Jersey. Rutgers' home crowd consisted almost entirely of greasy-haired Italian men in tight t-shirts. It was unreal how well those Jerseymen fulfilled their stereotypes.

    Hi Lin, been reading your stuff for years now and always found you authentic. First time was on Counterpunch and later here. Your life is going to be tough now, living in Vietnam will not be easy and earning money will be hard to so let me suggest an idea, find the biggest Vietnamese/Cambodian/ Laotian travel/tour company and write a weekly blog for them from some different place that you have explored.Will miss your American postcards though. All the best.

    Linh,

    I have taken exception to some of what you have written about ordinary Americans -- and I am tempted to say maybe you spent too much time hanging around with the dregs while you were here -- but there is to be sure a lot to criticize...

    What is clear is that you work hard at what you do -- with these contributions you have pretty much created another genre of writing, one which you practice really, really well -- your quirky writing is some of the most interesting and worthwhile here -- I hope you will continue once you get settled in Vietnam.

    Best of luck to you.

    I've seen this going on ever since about 1980, when Reagan facilitated the LBO's hollowing out corporations and the export of jobs. "It's morning again in America." There was nothing we could do. We had decades of nobody decent, nobody honest to vote for, nothing but one twisted agenda pretending to oppose another.

    I think Trump is different. He's a miraculous last chance. We should go hard and not listen to BS from those who willing received what we sent out. Apparently China received 30,000 of Hillary's emails, according to comments yesterday. She sent all her emails, except 4, to China.

  7. Linh, I hope you’ll continue to write when you’re in Vietnam and make comparisons, observations etc. Your writing is very interesting to me.

    As a sidenote, you sort of wonder if Mr. Chang’s kids would follow him if he ever went, and especially their kids (his grandkids, like the two of his daughter). He has lived in the US for a long time but obviously is not so assimilated, but while it may be easy for him to go back, how easy would it be for a 2nd gen let alone a 3rd gen Chinese-American? Linguistic skills start to falter by the 2nd gen for many and by the 3rd only the most hardcore are left.

    Also, his frank admission of ethnocentric nepotism is sort of refreshing in the sense that it confirms that many of these store owners have a vast ethnic network which they utilise, same thing with Indians I think (and in that instance, it is often a specific caste which help their own kind. Chang’s example with Fujian was also striking). Whites are too individualistic.

    Yep, jobs that went to China and Mexico were snapped up by people there who know how to network.

    Americans are never happy unless they’re shafting each other. It was inevitable: E pluribus unum was a trap, because out of many comes chaos. Those adept at sticking together can take advantage of the chaos. And they are now.

    It was prophesized in the 1970s by Wilmot Robinson that the USA would break up into what he called Ethnostates and we’d just be a big, ugly repeat of the rampant disorder that followed the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Lacking the discipline of the East and the ruthless fury of the North, the place was a wreck for some long generations.

    A Canadian actually told me Trump’s watered-down nationalism and half-assed tarriffs, however too little and too late, can be America’s last hope. Stir the dead ashs and hope something flames into a will to survive.

    Hope he was right. Still to early to hold the funeral, but it’s getting grim.

    “My white friends call me nigga all the time, Chang! There is a difference between ‘nigga’ and ‘nigger.’”

    LOL, Linh. I grew up in one of those onetime Midwestern industrial cities that were a sump for Euro-ethnics, Blacks, Jews, a few Asians, a few Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and on. We all knew, I think, that we as individuals were all more than our ethnic roots.

    Nonetheless, we freely talked among ourselves and without rancor about Bohunks, Dagos, Micks, hillbillies, Krauts–who were all Nazis, Jews–pronounced spittingly as “Joooz”. Depended on the circumstances how one would deploy language.

    When the first Black folks moved in there was much hub-bub about the “niggers taking over”. They were hard-working folks, one of their older sons broke into pro football for a brief period, and we got used to hanging out with their younger Black kids. In one incident that I still recall, where a bunch of Black kids were coming onto our street for some unknown reason, the younger Black son with whom we White kids used to hang out warned us, “The niggers are coming.”

    The slobs in Greenwich, Connecticut, or Beverly Hills, or Washington, DC, will never understand this sort of working at social equilibrium. They’re too busy fucking us over for their own gain.

    I grew up in a similar Yankee suburban ethnic melting pot where Jews and German-Lutherans lived side by side and no Jewish kid calls a German Lutheran kid a "Nazi"-that is a fistfight. You'll never see Jews for all their talk of history come down to a Queens German pride and throw bottles or start a riot. German-Americans and Jews are more intelligent and self-possessed this way than the blacks and the rednecks in the South.

    As for calling an Italian kid a Dago, you MIGHT get away with that and you might not. Blacks usually did not get away with it. Blacks, loving jokes about people's mothers, were often in the worst fistfights with Sicilians.

    The Irish-Americans and the Hillbillies have a long history in the British Isles of mutual antipathy but they are nearly physically indistinguishable.

  15. Nigger, Niger, Nigra, Niggah—single-soft “g” sound, double-hard “g” sound, long “i” vowel sound, short “i” vowel, even the slurred ending of low-IQ niggers—all mean the same thing in Latin: Black or Dark. Even the KJV Bible uses the Latin word Nigger in Acts 13:1 to name a Darkie.

    Nigger is such a bad word because melanin based coloration is an accurate indicator of a badly behaving—aggressive and stupid—animal.

    “In many species, melanin-based coloration is found to be pleiotropically linked to behavior. We review animal studies that have found darker pigmented individuals average higher amounts of aggression and sexual activity than lighter pigmented individuals…Studies find that darker pigmented people average higher levels of aggression and sexual activity (and also lower IQ).”

    Do pigmentation and the melanocortin system modulate aggression and sexuality in humans as they do in other animals?

    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886912000840

    “The mean IQ of sub-Saharan black Africans is about 70 – at the borderline of mental retardation.”

    African IQ and Mental Retardation, South African Journal of Psychology, Vol 36, Issue 1, 2006 http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/008124630603600101

    And former President Obama has endorsed the highbrow Latin term for black when “muh niggrah” was used by an invited speaker at the 2016 White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Obama said there was no problem with the use of the term. If the former President of the United States has no problem with it, neither should you.

    Free the Latin.

    I want to understand how an itinerant writer who spends too much time in dive bars and pool halls manages to keep his wife happy. Your genius obviously does not end at writing.

    You must have some secret for matrimonial harmony which I’ve yet to discover. So you must either reveal it to us as your parting gift or share your wife’s perspective on her long suffering. Better yet, please do both in the same article!

    Hi Captain Willard,

    First of, I'm really happy to hear your cousin is inspired by me to explore Philly better. I've always believed in being a homeboy/provincial, in the best sense.

    As for my wife, she's happy to let me roam around, for she doesn't really like to travel, especially the way I do it, which involves miles of walking each day, much drinking, and sometimes sleeping on a train or bus. My wife has no desire to sit in any bar, in any country.

    My wife's one pleasure is to watch the Phillies or, for a while, Flyers, and I often cook for her, since I'm fairly creative and successful with whatever ingredients. My father was a restaurant owner, and I did work in his kitchen.

    As for my wife, she’s happy to let me roam around, for she doesn’t really like to travel, especially the way I do it, which involves miles of walking each day, much drinking, and sometimes sleeping on a train or bus. My wife has no desire to sit in any bar, in any country.

    My wife’s one pleasure is to watch the Phillies or, for a while, Flyers, and I often cook for her, since I’m fairly creative and successful with whatever ingredients. My father was a restaurant owner, and I did work in his kitchen.

    Hi Linh,

    I'm sorry if it's impertinent to probe into your personal affairs but I for one had no idea you were married and I am also curious how it holds together despite your penchant for low budget traveling. Your wife must be an interesting lady and it would be enlightening to know more about her, if discretion permits.

    Where did you meet? How long have you been together? How has your marriage survived the divorce culture in America? And from your unique Eastern/Western perspective, what are your feelings about, and advice on, love, dating, marriage, and monogamy?

    I think this could be an article in of itself!

    “My white friends call me nigga all the time, Chang! There is a difference between ‘nigga’ and ‘nigger.’”

    LOL, Linh. I grew up in one of those onetime Midwestern industrial cities that were a sump for Euro-ethnics, Blacks, Jews, a few Asians, a few Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and on. We all knew, I think, that we as individuals were all more than our ethnic roots.

    Nonetheless, we freely talked among ourselves and without rancor about Bohunks, Dagos, Micks, hillbillies, Krauts--who were all Nazis, Jews--pronounced spittingly as "Joooz". Depended on the circumstances how one would deploy language.

    When the first Black folks moved in there was much hub-bub about the "niggers taking over". They were hard-working folks, one of their older sons broke into pro football for a brief period, and we got used to hanging out with their younger Black kids. In one incident that I still recall, where a bunch of Black kids were coming onto our street for some unknown reason, the younger Black son with whom we White kids used to hang out warned us, "The niggers are coming."

    The slobs in Greenwich, Connecticut, or Beverly Hills, or Washington, DC, will never understand this sort of working at social equilibrium. They're too busy fucking us over for their own gain.

    “The niggers are coming.” Indeed.

    It takes longer than you might think. Economic failure does not prevent the Fedzio Conspiracy from printing money while sucking all remaining wealth and resource out the door to various, um, "offsite storage facilities". And, you can betcher bottom dollar that's the plan. Figure 2050 before the ghostly "ethnostates" prediction might possibly appear. Fact is, failed states just fail -- they turn into Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil. Inside the shell of collapsing Empire USA, "ethnostates" seem an unlikely development. The huge Latino majority -- concealed, aided and abetted by the Fedzio Conspiracy for 30 years now -- will rule with Conquistador ruthlessness.

    I want to understand how an itinerant writer who spends too much time in dive bars and pool halls manages to keep his wife happy. Your genius obviously does not end at writing.

    You must have some secret for matrimonial harmony which I've yet to discover. So you must either reveal it to us as your parting gift or share your wife's perspective on her long suffering. Better yet, please do both in the same article!

    Thanks for all your writing - you have inspired my young cousin in Philly, an aspiring writer, to explore his neighborhood for real stories. I hope you find great happiness in Vietnam.

    In my experience, shabu use isn't very visible in Indonesia so I'm inclined to believe there isn't much of a problem. Indonesia's held back by the prohibition of education in the Dutch era, and the inherent propensity of the natives towards always taking the path of least resistance. It's ok because Indonesians are generally very happy with their way of life, and aren't inclined towards too much 'development' if it makes life more stressful for them.

    As for the Chinese, they're pretty much the only people with brains who can bear to live there, and, as they're the only people with brains, it naturally follows that they're responsible for almost all of the economic organisation. Natives may claim to resent them, yet leave their poor villages in droves to work Chinese-heavy cities. Go figure!

    When Suharto died the Indonesians slaughtered the Chinese in 1997, but as you pointed out they are not in a position to organize much in the way of capitol so the Chinese came back a few years later.

    Chinese-Filipinos cook up more shabu than a biker club in a trailer park but this is because the cops can be bribed-or more often are drug dealers for the Chinese-Filipinos or simply run of the mill addicts.

    I lived in Cebu and it was the most open meth-dealing country on earth. Sari Sari stores sold meth.

    Indonesia is a draconian Muslim country so of course drugs are frowned upon and Chinese cannot fall back on this occupation.

    "Dutch" well you give yourself away as an Asian by dint of assigning blame to the Netherlands, which occupied the archipelago for a scant 40 years.

    Unlike the Lothario Spanish, the Dutch did very little intermixing with Indonesians (Okay, the Van Halen bros) so there was no half-breed ruling elite hanging around like the "Mestizos" of the Philippines or the Portuguese of Macau.

    I had to fire a Chinese-Filipino in the Philippines and they are dangerous to cross for a foreigner doing business in their Southeast Asian countries they regard as being run by their Fuji Chinese syndicates.

    Luckily in my case I had OTHER Chinese-Filipinos backing my play in Cebu so the guy could not deport me...or worse.

    The idea that America runs the Philippines is absurd. It is run by a syndicate of Chinese-born tycoons from the Fuji Province and for all economic purposes the Philippines belongs to China already. This is why Duterte will lose the drug war because even he cannot mess with the manufacturers of crystal meth.

    Indonesia is Muslim and Muslims by nature are less mellow-it is the same reason Chinese-Filipinos fled Mindanao in the Southern Philippines.

    Since I suspect you are yourself Chinese (As is my wife) you are going to argue that Southeast Asians do not have the intelligence to run an economy and without the overseas Chinese community they would simply revert to piracy and chieftains.

    Possibly, but Australia and New Zealand would do well to see what happens when Fuji shopkeepers get a country to run. Already the New Zealanders are sleeping in their cars while the Chinese buy up the property, that is a step above Filipinos in the squat.

    People who complain about the Jews in the US are white proles who have never been overseas except for under a base perimeter so they do not know what happens when Chinese get a grip on any economy. They probably will in Canada.

    Yep, jobs that went to China and Mexico were snapped up by people there who know how to network.

    Americans are never happy unless they're shafting each other. It was inevitable: E pluribus unum was a trap, because out of many comes chaos. Those adept at sticking together can take advantage of the chaos. And they are now.

    It was prophesized in the 1970s by Wilmot Robinson that the USA would break up into what he called Ethnostates and we'd just be a big, ugly repeat of the rampant disorder that followed the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Lacking the discipline of the East and the ruthless fury of the North, the place was a wreck for some long generations.


    A Canadian actually told me Trump's watered-down nationalism and half-assed tarriffs, however too little and too late, can be America's last hope. Stir the dead ashs and hope something flames into a will to survive.

    Hope he was right. Still to early to hold the funeral, but it's getting grim.

    It was prophesized in the 1970s by Wilmot Robinson

    Wilmot Robertson (nom de plume of Sumner [John] Humphrey Ireland). Dispossessed Majority was seminal and it along with Ethnostate (you referenced) are online in several formats for free. Highly recommended along with his old magazine Instauration.

    But remember, or shout, CHINA AND MEXICO DID NOT TAKE ANY U.S. JOBS! U.S. companies and politicians decided on their own to export those jobs in order to make more money for themselves. Ross Perot warned us, remember? "There will be a great sucking sound of jobs being flushed out of the U.S.! " If you need to be angry, be angry at Reagan, Bush 1st, and Clinton, and the supporting bipartisan Senate that approved those treaties. And be angry at yourself for voting for those who arranged and approved the exportation of jobs.

    I’ve seen this going on ever since about 1980, when Reagan facilitated the LBO’s hollowing out corporations and the export of jobs. “It’s morning again in America.” There was nothing we could do. We had decades of nobody decent, nobody honest to vote for, nothing but one twisted agenda pretending to oppose another.

    I think Trump is different. He’s a miraculous last chance. We should go hard and not listen to BS from those who willing received what we sent out. Apparently China received 30,000 of Hillary’s emails, according to comments yesterday. She sent all her emails, except 4, to China.

    I have taken exception to some of what you have written about ordinary Americans — and I am tempted to say maybe you spent too much time hanging around with the dregs while you were here — but there is to be sure a lot to criticize…

    What is clear is that you work hard at what you do — with these contributions you have pretty much created another genre of writing, one which you practice really, really well — your quirky writing is some of the most interesting and worthwhile here — I hope you will continue once you get settled in Vietnam.

    Also, his frank admission of ethnocentric nepotism is sort of refreshing in the sense that it confirms that many of these store owners have a vast ethnic network which they utilise, same thing with Indians I think (and in that instance, it is often a specific caste which help their own kind. Chang's example with Fujian was also striking). Whites are too individualistic.

    My wife is 3rd generation Chinese. We’ve been to China. There’s no way she would live there.

    Linh,

    I have taken exception to some of what you have written about ordinary Americans -- and I am tempted to say maybe you spent too much time hanging around with the dregs while you were here -- but there is to be sure a lot to criticize...

    What is clear is that you work hard at what you do -- with these contributions you have pretty much created another genre of writing, one which you practice really, really well -- your quirky writing is some of the most interesting and worthwhile here -- I hope you will continue once you get settled in Vietnam.

    Best of luck to you.

    with these contributions you have pretty much created another genre of writing, one which you practice really, really well

    LO, and I mean no criticism of Dinh.

    This is interesting. On 'What would you do', a group of actors assumes their roles. A white girl has a Jewish boyfriend, and her parents disapprove. The show tries to draw out some WN wiggers from the patronage, but to no avail :

    Great post, Linh about one of my favorite towns, Millville, NJ. Spent a lot of time there in the early 1980′s while working as a contractor at the Salem Nuclear Generating Station. During refueling outages at the plant we camped out at the Millville Motor Inn which is now a Best Western. My bar of choice was Larry’s Bar just up the road from Jenny’s. Genesee Cream Ale on tap, a jukebox with all the Springsteen 45′s, pool tables for a quarter, and a club in the basement with live music on Saturday nights.

    I grew up on Air Force bases mainly in Arkansas and Texas. Millville was my first trip ever to the Eastern Time zone as a 22 year old. The town was crushed at the time. The glass mills had closed at the end of the 70′s, just like all the steel mills in eastern PA. Still I liked the town and the whole South Jersey vibe. Never understood why New Jersey always caught such a bad rap. I thought it was a pretty cool place.

    Fuji Chinese exploitation of Southeast Asians is merciless and they make/distribute crystal meth in the bargain to ragged desperate youth in the Philippines.

    Indonesia is an example of what happens eventually. Once the Chinese merchants-aided by networks into China-get a country to run economically you will have the Philippines or Indonesia.

    A bunch of starvation-wage people hooked on "shabu" in the bargain.

    I've worked with Chinese-Filipinos and they are particularly awful, knowing that they have the power in the Philippines.

    In Marco's era the ruling elite were still Hispanics. Lying and stealing is pretty typical of Filipinos and once they run the country they will pilfer it the way a Filipino hooker you bring to your house from a bar will go through your wallet when you are in the shower.

    Because the Chinese-Filipinos owned the hardware stores and pharmacies once they took it into their heads to cook meth in the early 80's the natural tendency of Filipinos to be thieves, petty criminals and corrupt officials reached a nadir that resulted in Duterte's election.

    Keep your CV floating about in the States. You never know about the market for literary intellectuals. Maybe double ex-pats will be the next fad for colleges, speakers’ bureaus, talk shows.

    Everyone’s got to make a buck. There may be firms interested in speakers who can deliver credible pep talks to middling executives on topics such as, oh, “Nine Vietnamese Management Secrets You Need to Know Now!” (I don’t actually think you’ll join Team Goldman Sachs.)

    A bunch of starvation-wage people hooked on “shabu” in the bargain.
     
    In my experience, shabu use isn't very visible in Indonesia so I'm inclined to believe there isn't much of a problem. Indonesia's held back by the prohibition of education in the Dutch era, and the inherent propensity of the natives towards always taking the path of least resistance. It's ok because Indonesians are generally very happy with their way of life, and aren't inclined towards too much 'development' if it makes life more stressful for them.

    As for the Chinese, they're pretty much the only people with brains who can bear to live there, and, as they're the only people with brains, it naturally follows that they're responsible for almost all of the economic organisation. Natives may claim to resent them, yet leave their poor villages in droves to work Chinese-heavy cities. Go figure!

    When Suharto died the Indonesians slaughtered the Chinese in 1997, but as you pointed out they are not in a position to organize much in the way of capitol so the Chinese came back a few years later.

    Chinese-Filipinos cook up more shabu than a biker club in a trailer park but this is because the cops can be bribed-or more often are drug dealers for the Chinese-Filipinos or simply run of the mill addicts.

    I lived in Cebu and it was the most open meth-dealing country on earth. Sari Sari stores sold meth.

    Indonesia is a draconian Muslim country so of course drugs are frowned upon and Chinese cannot fall back on this occupation.

    The Indonesian anti-Chinese riots like the Malaysian ones had nothing to do with the United States.

    You've been inhaling the meth vapors in your shabu lab behind your family pharmacy.

    Unlike Jews, the Fuji Chinese overseas merchant class tends to bribe/back dictators in addition to treating the locals with open contempt so when there is a power vacuum the proles simply grab their farm implements and start another anti-Chinese riot because they hate your guts for owning their economy and paying them shit in addition to treating them as "uncooked barbarians".

    Singapore is held in check by the Indians, who bring enough capital into the country to offset complete Chinese market-domination. You'll probably argue that the US fiddled with Singaporean immigration policies in order to keep Singapore from becoming a Chinese vassal state as Fuji peasant paranoiacs will.

    This is why things are slightly BETTER under colonialism in Philippines or Malaysia for the Natives because the Chinese are held in check by European administrations and Chinese cannot bribe the politicians and government-which is usually how they do things.

    “Dutch” well you give yourself away as an Asian by dint of assigning blame to the Netherlands, which occupied the archipelago for a scant 40 years.

    Unlike the Lothario Spanish, the Dutch did very little intermixing with Indonesians (Okay, the Van Halen bros) so there was no half-breed ruling elite hanging around like the “Mestizos” of the Philippines or the Portuguese of Macau.

    I had to fire a Chinese-Filipino in the Philippines and they are dangerous to cross for a foreigner doing business in their Southeast Asian countries they regard as being run by their Fuji Chinese syndicates.

    Luckily in my case I had OTHER Chinese-Filipinos backing my play in Cebu so the guy could not deport me…or worse.

    The idea that America runs the Philippines is absurd. It is run by a syndicate of Chinese-born tycoons from the Fuji Province and for all economic purposes the Philippines belongs to China already. This is why Duterte will lose the drug war because even he cannot mess with the manufacturers of crystal meth.

    Indonesia is Muslim and Muslims by nature are less mellow-it is the same reason Chinese-Filipinos fled Mindanao in the Southern Philippines.

    Since I suspect you are yourself Chinese (As is my wife) you are going to argue that Southeast Asians do not have the intelligence to run an economy and without the overseas Chinese community they would simply revert to piracy and chieftains.

    Possibly, but Australia and New Zealand would do well to see what happens when Fuji shopkeepers get a country to run. Already the New Zealanders are sleeping in their cars while the Chinese buy up the property, that is a step above Filipinos in the squat.

    People who complain about the Jews in the US are white proles who have never been overseas except for under a base perimeter so they do not know what happens when Chinese get a grip on any economy. They probably will in Canada.

    Nothing of the sort. Singapore was ejected from Malaysia and, sitting precariously between two Muslim majority countries, had to become useful enough to the power centers of the world to be worth protecting. As such, they continued to use the English language and British legal systems and did their best to open their economy to the world. Singapore was moving ahead by leaps and bounds while China was a rural nothingness and the legacy of this is that Singaporeans still look down on mainland Chinese. This attitude is changing fast, but Singapore will never become a vassal state of anyone, simply because it's status as SE Asia's Switzerland is way more valuable.

    This is why things are slightly BETTER under colonialism in Philippines or Malaysia for the Natives because the Chinese are held in check by European administrations and
     
    Chinese don't hold the power in Malaysia. Malays do. They control the army, the police, every government department, every GLC, and they hold a voting majority to boot.

  61. My mistake-

    Chinese WERE held in check by European colonialists, not ARE.

    But you see my point. The European colonists could not be bribed by Chinese like Suharto or Marcos so the Southeast Asian colonies did not turn to complete shit outside Chinese Overseas Community suburbs and nor were there the fiery native reprisals like the 1969 anti-Chinese Malaysian riots or the Indonesian ones in 1998.

    . . . and then let them go to shit! White people were the greatest pioneers on planet Earth, no doubt about it. But why are they so unable to keep their conquests vital? South Africa and Rhodesia were betrayed by the very white nations that should have been protecting them, while Australia is rapidly becoming Asian, and the USA .. well, Linh Dinh seems to be doing a good job of documenting this one.

    To my eyes, white people seem to be extremely intelligent individually but socially retarded. This is why I say they have a lot to learn.

    India's a shithole country, no doubt about it. But tell me why there are so many washed up Americans all over Thailand who would sooner live at the bottom of the social ladder in a developing country than go back to their own first world paradise? Most white foreigners genuinely seem to prefer live in Thailand to live in their own country and it's only financial considerations that stop them living there full time.

    Holy hell Jeff Stryker is a turd. Luckily the contrary "viewpoints" of this site allow overt racist bastards like Jeff to spread his venom.

    Yeah, way to blanket scapegoat on the basis of ethnicity while omitting knowledge of actual history, political economy and the role of class. Smedley Butler 1--Loser American expat 0.

    “Spread venom”

    I’m not the one making the strongest statements here, that is the anti-Jewish posters.

    I have no idea why people object to me.

    The Indonesian anti-Chinese riots like the Malaysian ones had nothing to do with the United States.

    You've been inhaling the meth vapors in your shabu lab behind your family pharmacy.

    Unlike Jews, the Fuji Chinese overseas merchant class tends to bribe/back dictators in addition to treating the locals with open contempt so when there is a power vacuum the proles simply grab their farm implements and start another anti-Chinese riot because they hate your guts for owning their economy and paying them shit in addition to treating them as "uncooked barbarians".

    Singapore is held in check by the Indians, who bring enough capital into the country to offset complete Chinese market-domination. You'll probably argue that the US fiddled with Singaporean immigration policies in order to keep Singapore from becoming a Chinese vassal state as Fuji peasant paranoiacs will.

    This is why things are slightly BETTER under colonialism in Philippines or Malaysia for the Natives because the Chinese are held in check by European administrations and Chinese cannot bribe the politicians and government-which is usually how they do things.

    You’ll probably argue that the US fiddled with Singaporean immigration policies in order to keep Singapore from becoming a Chinese vassal state

    Nothing of the sort. Singapore was ejected from Malaysia and, sitting precariously between two Muslim majority countries, had to become useful enough to the power centers of the world to be worth protecting. As such, they continued to use the English language and British legal systems and did their best to open their economy to the world. Singapore was moving ahead by leaps and bounds while China was a rural nothingness and the legacy of this is that Singaporeans still look down on mainland Chinese. This attitude is changing fast, but Singapore will never become a vassal state of anyone, simply because it’s status as SE Asia’s Switzerland is way more valuable.

    This is why things are slightly BETTER under colonialism in Philippines or Malaysia for the Natives because the Chinese are held in check by European administrations and

    Chinese don’t hold the power in Malaysia. Malays do. They control the army, the police, every government department, every GLC, and they hold a voting majority to boot.

    Chinese cannot bribe the politicians and government-which is usually how they do things.

    You must be joking. Do you have any idea how rampant bribery is in Malaysia?

    "White people have a lot to learn"

    That is why they discovered empty countries and created thriving first world nations out of them that Indians and Asians will climb over their own mother to get into.

    Talk to any American stationed/doing business in India. They are glad to haul-ass home (Like I was). East Asia is more palatable because they are human beings.

    "Burn my noodles"

    No, but I hate Chinese-Filipinos.

    "Dutch East India Company"

    You Asians and your obsessions with European colonization. That was seventy years ago and I make you for an Indonesian whose ass is burned by Dutch people with their tall physiques and long noses. You probably see local women swarming around them in Bali and are overcome with jealous.

    Okay...not only did the white man come to Southeast Asia and take over your country but in addition to that he had a bigger dick and your women all wanted to have a kid with him.

    There, let that burn your ass.

    “White people have a lot to learn”

    That is why they discovered empty countries and created thriving first world nations out of them that Indians and Asians will climb over their own mother to get into.

South Africa and Rhodesia were betrayed by the very white nations that should have been protecting them, while Australia is rapidly becoming Asian, and the USA .. well, Linh Dinh seems to be doing a good job of documenting this one.

    To my eyes, white people seem to be extremely intelligent individually but socially retarded. This is why I say they have a lot to learn.

Most white foreigners genuinely seem to prefer live in Thailand to live in their own country and it’s only financial considerations that stop them living there full time.

    Why the anti-Chinese riots in Malaysia then?

    We both know the answer. The Fuji Chinese treat employees like farm animals, side with any crooked politician who will prevent the formation of unions, become an arrogant ruling elite, are actually racist towards Malays whom they regard as promiscuous stupid idlers (Which they are though Islam keeps this at bay)...etc. etc.

    The US then has to send Philippines a load of AID because the owners of the economy pay nothing back to society and bribe the corrupt politicians to enable them.

    I don't like the fact that the US taxpayer sends AID to the Philippines when all of the Chinese family cartels are billionaires.

    If you have to do business in the Philippines, the Chinese-Filipinos will act like the Sopranos.

    As for corruption and bribery, when the Americans owned the Philippines or the Dutch owned Indonesia or the British owned Hong Kong this was under control. It happened, but not at the government-levels administrated by the Europeans.

    Singapore, like Hong Kong, benefited from staying with British legal frameworks and systems of law-Me Cane You studied in Britain and was an Anglophile. Hong Kong was similar.

    "Bottom of the social ladder"

    Whites are not at the bottom of the social ladder in Southeast Asia-white skin and long noses are to revered for that. Plus, the currency exchange.

    Being Muslim, you have anti-West feelings that Buddhist countries in Southeast Asia don't have and Islam is also one reason why Indonesia is the way it is and Singapore is the way it is. So not many Americans want to get blown up in Bali but Singapore and Thailand are nice.

    "South Africa and Rhodesia"

    The white situation in Africa was the Chinese situation in Indonesia on steroids-a small hated market-dominant minority of an alien race...though you have not explained (As a Muslim Indonesian) why you saw fit to rape/kill your Chinese in Indonesia (Jihad? Better job wages? Shitty Chinese imported products?).

    "Live full-time in Asia"

    Not many Westerners would live full-time in Indonesia because your Muslims and have many of the pathology of blacks or Hispanics (Why this is inherent in the genomes of certain populations is not yet known) though Indonesians in other countries assimilate well enough.

    So you are referring to Buddhist countries in Southeast Asia.
    , @Jeff Stryker
    "Socially retarded?"

    Your races' tendencies to elect dictators and despots is a collective reflection of your social retardation.

    Of course in a democracy and theoretically free country certain races will become a social chaos and civil disruption.

    Having said that, Indonesian Muslims are not really much of a problem in Holland. They've always been a minority there, but it is the Berbers and blacks that cause the problems.

    So I would not say that Indonesians have the same social pathology of Muslim groups in Europe or Australia-the Lebanese rapists, the North African gangsters, the Pakistani child groomers.

    Hi Linh,

    I'm sorry if it's impertinent to probe into your personal affairs but I for one had no idea you were married and I am also curious how it holds together despite your penchant for low budget traveling. Your wife must be an interesting lady and it would be enlightening to know more about her, if discretion permits.

    Where did you meet? How long have you been together? How has your marriage survived the divorce culture in America? And from your unique Eastern/Western perspective, what are your feelings about, and advice on, love, dating, marriage, and monogamy?

    I think this could be an article in of itself!

    Linh is very sensitive on this point.

    He was trying to eviscerate me for pointing out that, although he is married, he is always writing from the viewpoint of not being marrieed.

    In his scolding me for it, he was raising two or three passing refs to his wife over some years.

    Sorry, I was never to noticing any of them, a little like you, however, since he does speak of it in this thread, you are a little dim to raise it in this way now.

    When Suharto died the Indonesians slaughtered the Chinese in 1997

    Suharto oversaw four genocides in Indonesia, E Timor, West Papua, Aceh ,all backed by the 5lies.
    Clinton called Suharto ‘our kind of guy’

    since you ignore all my evidences its now clear that you are willfully obtuse.

    The Indonesian anti-Chinese riots like the Malaysian ones had nothing to do with the United States.

    Practically every anti Chinese riots, including the 1965 genocide and the 1998 pogrom/mass rapes were orchestrated by fukus., the MaLaysian riots were highly probable made in FUKUS too,

    The idea that America runs the Philippines is absurd

    pRactially every Ph prez preceeding Duterte was a murkkan stooge.
    and you’r supposed to be a SEA expert ?

    Indonesia is Muslim and Muslims by nature are less mellow-it is the same reason Chinese-Filipinos fled Mindanao in the Southern Philippines.

    Muslim separatists and Abu Sayaff jihadists all run by CIA.

    you are going to argue that Southeast Asians do not have the intelligence to run an economy and without the overseas Chinese community they would simply revert to piracy and chieftains.

    I don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.

    I dont think the anglos paid for their properties in Diego Garcia, Jeju, OKinawa, Marshall island, Hawaii, Guam, puerto Rico, USA. , Canada, Oz, NZ….

    People who complain about the Jews in the US are white proles who have never been overseas except for under a base perimeter so they do not know what happens when Chinese get a grip on any economy

    Your answer is simple. First, currency. A white man can live for comparatively little. Second, the Asians are not was violent or dangerous as the US Non-Asian minority population. Southeast Asians are kind of mellow (Which is why the Chinese were able to take over their economies) on the street level.

    You're not going to be killed by Malays minding your own business whereas blacks or Hispanics reach a certain population threshold in any city and then it becomes a death trap-Detroit, Baltimore, Atlanta, East Los Angeles.

    It is hard for the average white to escape these conditions. Doing so costs a great deal of money.

    If you have kids and a wife, then of course moving abroad is an impossibility. You simply have to earn enough money to live somewhere that is geographically removed. But for a single white male, remaining in the US on a modest income is actually dangerous.

    This is not the case for other Westerners.

    Why the anti-Chinese riots in Malaysia then?
     
    A country was forming from disconnected settlements. In the past, villages were far apart and towns were small. People lived separately and didn't trouble each other. Ostensibly, the sultans and the British were in control (the exact balance depending on which state) whereas realistically, the Chinese lived and prospered autonomously and had their own internal mechanisms for law enforcement and protection. As Malaysia developed and grew into a unified whole, the Malays realized that all the time spent 'lepaking' had left them at a massive disadvantage vs. most of the Chinese and some of the Indians. They consider themselves to be the original people of the Malay peninsular (never mind the orang asli, and never mind that so many 'Malays' are actually descended from Bugis or Orang Pattani or misc. Sumatran tribes) and hence resented the reality that 'foreign' people were further ahead in 'their' land.

    Nothing's actually changed since then, it's just that the Malays are kept pacified with government jobs, guaranteed places in university, and all sorts of discounts, handouts, and entitlements.

    The Fuji Chinese treat employees like farm animals
     
    In my experience, they treat them as they deserve. If an employee is genuinely diligent and up to Chinese standard, they'll treat them with respect. The reality is that a lot of workers are simply quite useless and cause fuckups left right and center.

    are actually racist towards Malays whom they regard as promiscuous stupid idlers (Which they are though Islam keeps this at bay)…etc. etc.
     
    Malay girls are reputed to sleep around a lot more than Chinese girls, so this isn't unjustified. But that's not the issue at all and, outside of getting married, Chinese don't give a damn who sleeps around and who doesn't. Their main issue with the Malays is that they perceive them as useless entitled princesses, who are better worked around than worked with. This is why they have a strong preference for employing Bangladeshis and other foreign workers whenever possible, who have similarly low standards of productivity, but not nearly such high expectations.

    As for corruption and bribery, when the Americans owned the Philippines or the Dutch owned Indonesia or the British owned Hong Kong this was under control. It happened, but not at the government-levels administrated by the Europeans.
     
    In other words, when the natives took over governance, integrity went out of the window, along with every other marker of good performance. And you blame the Chinese? I'm really really sorry about your noodles, but why not just tell her you'd prefer to eat breakfast at work?

    It is hard for the average white to escape these conditions. Doing so costs a great deal of money.

    If you have kids and a wife, then of course moving abroad is an impossibility. You simply have to earn enough money to live somewhere that is geographically removed. But for a single white male, remaining in the US on a modest income is actually dangerous.

    This is not the case for other Westerners.

    That is why they discovered empty countries and created thriving first world nations out of them that Indians and Asians will climb over their own mother to get into.

     

    . . . and then let them go to shit! White people were the greatest pioneers on planet Earth, no doubt about it. But why are they so unable to keep their conquests vital? South Africa and Rhodesia were betrayed by the very white nations that should have been protecting them, while Australia is rapidly becoming Asian, and the USA .. well, Linh Dinh seems to be doing a good job of documenting this one.

    To my eyes, white people seem to be extremely intelligent individually but socially retarded. This is why I say they have a lot to learn.

    Talk to any American stationed/doing business in India. They are glad to haul-ass home (Like I was). East Asia is more palatable because they are human beings.

     

    India's a shithole country, no doubt about it. But tell me why there are so many washed up Americans all over Thailand who would sooner live at the bottom of the social ladder in a developing country than go back to their own first world paradise? Most white foreigners genuinely seem to prefer live in Thailand to live in their own country and it's only financial considerations that stop them living there full time.

    “Bottom of the social ladder”

    Whites are not at the bottom of the social ladder in Southeast Asia-white skin and long noses are to revered for that. Plus, the currency exchange.

    Being Muslim, you have anti-West feelings that Buddhist countries in Southeast Asia don’t have and Islam is also one reason why Indonesia is the way it is and Singapore is the way it is. So not many Americans want to get blown up in Bali but Singapore and Thailand are nice.

    “South Africa and Rhodesia”

    The white situation in Africa was the Chinese situation in Indonesia on steroids-a small hated market-dominant minority of an alien race…though you have not explained (As a Muslim Indonesian) why you saw fit to rape/kill your Chinese in Indonesia (Jihad? Better job wages? Shitty Chinese imported products?).

    “Live full-time in Asia”

    Not many Westerners would live full-time in Indonesia because your Muslims and have many of the pathology of blacks or Hispanics (Why this is inherent in the genomes of certain populations is not yet known) though Indonesians in other countries assimilate well enough.

    So you are referring to Buddhist countries in Southeast Asia.

    “Socially retarded?”

    Your races’ tendencies to elect dictators and despots is a collective reflection of your social retardation.

    Of course in a democracy and theoretically free country certain races will become a social chaos and civil disruption.

    Having said that, Indonesian Muslims are not really much of a problem in Holland. They’ve always been a minority there, but it is the Berbers and blacks that cause the problems.

    So I would not say that Indonesians have the same social pathology of Muslim groups in Europe or Australia-the Lebanese rapists, the North African gangsters, the Pakistani child groomers.

    “My white friends call me nigga all the time, Chang! There is a difference between ‘nigga’ and ‘nigger.’”

    LOL, Linh. I grew up in one of those onetime Midwestern industrial cities that were a sump for Euro-ethnics, Blacks, Jews, a few Asians, a few Mexicans and Puerto Ricans, and on. We all knew, I think, that we as individuals were all more than our ethnic roots.

    Nonetheless, we freely talked among ourselves and without rancor about Bohunks, Dagos, Micks, hillbillies, Krauts--who were all Nazis, Jews--pronounced spittingly as "Joooz". Depended on the circumstances how one would deploy language.

    When the first Black folks moved in there was much hub-bub about the "niggers taking over". They were hard-working folks, one of their older sons broke into pro football for a brief period, and we got used to hanging out with their younger Black kids. In one incident that I still recall, where a bunch of Black kids were coming onto our street for some unknown reason, the younger Black son with whom we White kids used to hang out warned us, "The niggers are coming."

    The slobs in Greenwich, Connecticut, or Beverly Hills, or Washington, DC, will never understand this sort of working at social equilibrium. They're too busy fucking us over for their own gain.

    JACK-O

    I grew up in a similar Yankee suburban ethnic melting pot where Jews and German-Lutherans lived side by side and no Jewish kid calls a German Lutheran kid a “Nazi”-that is a fistfight. You’ll never see Jews for all their talk of history come down to a Queens German pride and throw bottles or start a riot. German-Americans and Jews are more intelligent and self-possessed this way than the blacks and the rednecks in the South.

    As for calling an Italian kid a Dago, you MIGHT get away with that and you might not. Blacks usually did not get away with it. Blacks, loving jokes about people’s mothers, were often in the worst fistfights with Sicilians.

    The Irish-Americans and the Hillbillies have a long history in the British Isles of mutual antipathy but they are nearly physically indistinguishable.

    Why the anti-Chinese riots in Malaysia then?

    We both know the answer. The Fuji Chinese treat employees like farm animals, side with any crooked politician who will prevent the formation of unions, become an arrogant ruling elite, are actually racist towards Malays whom they regard as promiscuous stupid idlers (Which they are though Islam keeps this at bay)...etc. etc.

    The US then has to send Philippines a load of AID because the owners of the economy pay nothing back to society and bribe the corrupt politicians to enable them.

    I don't like the fact that the US taxpayer sends AID to the Philippines when all of the Chinese family cartels are billionaires.

    If you have to do business in the Philippines, the Chinese-Filipinos will act like the Sopranos.

    As for corruption and bribery, when the Americans owned the Philippines or the Dutch owned Indonesia or the British owned Hong Kong this was under control. It happened, but not at the government-levels administrated by the Europeans.

    Singapore, like Hong Kong, benefited from staying with British legal frameworks and systems of law-Me Cane You studied in Britain and was an Anglophile. Hong Kong was similar.

    Why the anti-Chinese riots in Malaysia then?

    A country was forming from disconnected settlements. In the past, villages were far apart and towns were small. People lived separately and didn’t trouble each other. Ostensibly, the sultans and the British were in control (the exact balance depending on which state) whereas realistically, the Chinese lived and prospered autonomously and had their own internal mechanisms for law enforcement and protection. As Malaysia developed and grew into a unified whole, the Malays realized that all the time spent ‘lepaking’ had left them at a massive disadvantage vs. most of the Chinese and some of the Indians. They consider themselves to be the original people of the Malay peninsular (never mind the orang asli, and never mind that so many ‘Malays’ are actually descended from Bugis or Orang Pattani or misc. Sumatran tribes) and hence resented the reality that ‘foreign’ people were further ahead in ‘their’ land.

    Nothing’s actually changed since then, it’s just that the Malays are kept pacified with government jobs, guaranteed places in university, and all sorts of discounts, handouts, and entitlements.

    The Fuji Chinese treat employees like farm animals

    In my experience, they treat them as they deserve. If an employee is genuinely diligent and up to Chinese standard, they’ll treat them with respect. The reality is that a lot of workers are simply quite useless and cause fuckups left right and center.

    are actually racist towards Malays whom they regard as promiscuous stupid idlers (Which they are though Islam keeps this at bay)…etc. etc.

    Malay girls are reputed to sleep around a lot more than Chinese girls, so this isn’t unjustified. But that’s not the issue at all and, outside of getting married, Chinese don’t give a damn who sleeps around and who doesn’t. Their main issue with the Malays is that they perceive them as useless entitled princesses, who are better worked around than worked with. This is why they have a strong preference for employing Bangladeshis and other foreign workers whenever possible, who have similarly low standards of productivity, but not nearly such high expectations.

    As for corruption and bribery, when the Americans owned the Philippines or the Dutch owned Indonesia or the British owned Hong Kong this was under control. It happened, but not at the government-levels administrated by the Europeans.

    In other words, when the natives took over governance, integrity went out of the window, along with every other marker of good performance. And you blame the Chinese? I’m really really sorry about your noodles, but why not just tell her you’d prefer to eat breakfast at work?

    Your answer is simple. First, currency. A white man can live for comparatively little. Second, the Asians are not was violent or dangerous as the US Non-Asian minority population. Southeast Asians are kind of mellow (Which is why the Chinese were able to take over their economies) on the street level.

    You're not going to be killed by Malays minding your own business whereas blacks or Hispanics reach a certain population threshold in any city and then it becomes a death trap-Detroit, Baltimore, Atlanta, East Los Angeles.

    It is hard for the average white to escape these conditions. Doing so costs a great deal of money.

    If you have kids and a wife, then of course moving abroad is an impossibility. You simply have to earn enough money to live somewhere that is geographically removed. But for a single white male, remaining in the US on a modest income is actually dangerous.

  89. I would not want Fuji Provincers behaving in the West like they do in the Philippines, put it that way. Meth labs bubbling on every corner; bribery; breaking whatever laws they wish.

    As for the riots in Malaysia, I think they were triggered by something Chinese did to the Malaysian flag in 1969. Desecrating it or something. But no matter, the same thing happened in Indonesia.

    A Westerner will merely identify himself as a Swede or Floridian, but Southeast Asians and Chinese are dissemblers and duplicitous, so I don’t expect such a clarification from you.

    You’re possibly a Thai-Teocheow half-breed or maybe a Malay half-breed. Part Chinese yourself. No Flip or Jap or Korean, that much I can determine right off the top.

    You’re not bright enough in your responses to be an East Asian.

    As for the bit about local and integrity, this is probably true. Chinese are born Kleptocrats and the Filipinos cannot grasp a society with no graft.

    The difference is that Chinese can to some degree mimic Anglo-Saxon countries or perpetuate a framework based upon their systems of law and governance ie Singapore or Hong Kong. This is sort of impossible for Malays.

    Whether it is because they brought niggers over, let Mexicans come north without shooting them, didn't keep their women slim, and allowed them to become gold diggers, allowed whitey to have drugs or whatever, your inference is quite simple:

    Asians make better societies than white people, and the proof of your opinion is your choice of address, therefore everything you wrote in post #63 is null-and-void. A complete lie, one might say.

    Asians don’t make better societies, as one poster noted about Australia they simply live far enough from the most violent and primitive people on earth that their countries don’t cope with them.

    Chinese refugees always tried to reach Hong Kong, not vice versa.

    This possibility keeps suggesting itself to me. But then again, a troll demonstrates their skills by provoking a massive emotional response with relatively little input where Jeff seems to provoke a relatively mild response after investing rather a lot of effort in his posts.

    If he is a troll, he's not a very good one.

    I’ve reiterated a few facts and as always my Chinese fellow posters or half-breeds react with hot indignation because they rarely communicate with a long-term white expat (I’m not that old, 44, but spent decades in Asia).

    I’d hardly call myself a troll because Chinese or posters of Chinese descent disagree with the opinions of a long-time expat.

    Nor am I a retiree. I made a living in Asia and white men doing business in places like the Philippines have no choice but to interact with the Chinese business community-there’s no love lost between us.

    I would not want Fuji Provincers behaving in the West like they do in the Philippines, put it that way. Meth labs bubbling on every corner; bribery; breaking whatever laws they wish.

    As for the riots in Malaysia, I think they were triggered by something Chinese did to the Malaysian flag in 1969. Desecrating it or something. But no matter, the same thing happened in Indonesia.

    As for the bit about promiscuity, Chinese women either sell it or they do not. The Chinese women that do sell it are absolute hardcore industrial prostitutes.

    "Wasn't one event"

    Supposedly the Chinese youths in 1969 desecrating the Malaysian flag was the final straw. But I agree that it was a culmination of factors resulting from letting Fuji merchants run rampant over the economy that led to smoldering resentment.

    Fortunately in the West, anti-Chinese sentiment and white work ethic in general prevented the Chinese doing anything but working on railroads or running massage parlors historically-speaking. But we have not seen the end-game in Australia or New Zealand...yet.

    "Not Southeast Asian Chinese girls"

    Of course not, these girls are married to other Chinese family cartels for strategic business purposes. A few, very few, will marry a Westerner. And those tend to be the lower-tier. Here's another weird thing. The few Southeast Chinese married to Westerners will most often be married to Jews-always resented in European countries for the same reasons that Fuji Chinese were resented in Southeast Asia. Coincidence? I'm not sure.

    "I'm actually impressed"

    No you're not. You're offended that some white expat who spent half of his 44 years in Asia has a few cynical opinions and carries around some dislike for Chinese-Filipinos because of a rough experience with them.

    If he was decent marriage material, he would have been married a decade ago and by now have kids, including a son in the fourth grade he could be teaching to throw fast balls and field grounders. But even if he were to marry this afternoon, he'll never do that, because he'll be too old.

    Linh, I did a quick eyeroll of Chris Degroot's writing, and it looks pretty good.

    I see a very few "8's" and "9's" here who are obviously hooking up "down". Scruffy White guys, Blacks. I can't explain it, but it looks pretty unsavory.

    As a youngster, I knew two guys, one about 40, the other about 50. Both had been afflicted by polio. They were hobbled, and walked poorly. Both worked at good wages, provider material. Both married. The wife of the 40-year-old was plump and cheery, maybe a "3". I'm not sure similarly hobbled guys today, with little chance at good-paying blue collar jobs, would have a chance.

    I'm convinced the whole feminist and affirmative action thing has been incredibly destructive of ordinary mating, but I've got a feeling I won't persuade anyone of that. I'm out of the dating and relationship game, and I'm okay with that. The most stunning woman I've met the last few years looks about my age (early 60s), prom queen figure, immaculate appearance, attends Latin Mass, hasn't owned a TV since the 1970s, easy charm. All I can say is they don't make 'em like they used to.

    Liza's advice makes good sense and ties in with another expression I've heard: 'In the West, you marry who you love. In Asia, you love who you marry'.

    It seems there are 3 values: Material status, attractiveness, and biological viability. Both men and women can increase material status at the expense of attractiveness, but men retain biological viability while women lose it as an inevitable side effect of aging.

    So in other words, it depends on the man. If he's got nothing to show for his wasted years, then your predictions ring true. But if he's spent his time acquiring wealth, power, and worldly wisdom, then these added values can more than compensate for his loss of physical youthfulness.

    Kinda difficult to talk about Indonesia, or Malaysia, or his adopted home of the Philippines (pity the Filipinos for having to tolerate him) WITHOUT knowledge of the divide-and-conquer tactics of colonial rule. It explains his contempt for various ghetto and trailer trash groups in America, whereas someone with actual cognition would realize the ruling class foment and benefit from these idiot mindsets.

    He doesn't realize Marcos was a dupe of the CIA. Ditto for Suharto.

    COLONIALISM IS DEAD

    How many whites do you actually MEET in Asia? Not many.

    Colonialism is gone.

    The average white today, and this would include the Landlord-in-Chief whose father was a German immigrant carpenter at the time that the Brits were in Southeast Asia, cannot even find your countries on a map.

    So forget about colonialism.

    Because whites have.

    As for the riots in Malaysia, I think they were triggered by something Chinese did to the Malaysian flag in 1969
     
    It wasn't one event. It was an unstable situation that escalated fast, just like partition between India and Pakistan.

    You get a Malay or a Filipino drunk, while you simply offer a Chinese hooker $30.
     
    What the hell are you talking about? When was the last time a SE Asian Chinese girl prostituted herself for $30? All of the Chinese prostitutes in Malaysia are imported from China and unlikely to be Hokkien or Cantonese - much more likely to be from backwards rural provinces.

    The rest of you responses are pretty typical of Chinese.
     
    Make up your mind. Am I Indonesian, or Muslim, or Chinese? So far you've been completely wrong three times. I'm actually quite impressed.

    “Wasn’t one event”

    Supposedly the Chinese youths in 1969 desecrating the Malaysian flag was the final straw. But I agree that it was a culmination of factors resulting from letting Fuji merchants run rampant over the economy that led to smoldering resentment.

    Fortunately in the West, anti-Chinese sentiment and white work ethic in general prevented the Chinese doing anything but working on railroads or running massage parlors historically-speaking. But we have not seen the end-game in Australia or New Zealand…yet.

    “Not Southeast Asian Chinese girls”

    Of course not, these girls are married to other Chinese family cartels for strategic business purposes. A few, very few, will marry a Westerner. And those tend to be the lower-tier. Here’s another weird thing. The few Southeast Chinese married to Westerners will most often be married to Jews-always resented in European countries for the same reasons that Fuji Chinese were resented in Southeast Asia. Coincidence? I’m not sure.

    “I’m actually impressed”

    No you’re not. You’re offended that some white expat who spent half of his 44 years in Asia has a few cynical opinions and carries around some dislike for Chinese-Filipinos because of a rough experience with them.

    You absolute bellend. I can't speak for the Philippines but in MY/SG, the young middle class Chinese marry for love.

There's plenty of choice and, while status is an issue, it's more about ensuring the husband can provide rather than forging long term business links.

    The number is actually quite large, given that there are relatively few suitable Westerners available. Westerners are rare to begin with, and then they need to be a professional who is willing to settle down long term. Most Westerners (like yourself it seems) have real trouble settling into Asian cultures and are unwilling to spend the time needed to learn multiple languages and complex social interactions. Who wants to marry someone who's going to get bored and go home?

    No you’re not. You’re offended that some white expat who spent half of his 44 years in Asia has a few cynical opinions and carries around some dislike for Chinese-Filipinos because of a rough experience with them.
     
    You spent 22 years living somewhere you hated? Wow. You must have been desperate. I'm sorry for your loss, but please understand that you could have done so much better if you were living in a more agreeable part of Asia. Why live in a shitty part of the Philippines, when you could have been living in a nice city in Thailand or Malaysia?

    You don't seem to understand that the character of the Chinese varies from region to region. I notice the shittiest Chinese tend to be cut off from progress and live in backward areas surrounded by non-Chinese. The best kind are the modern cosmopolitan English-speaking type who live in the cities.

    I'm leery of advising anybody about anything, but my long-time friend Liza told me once, "If there's commitment, you can love anyone, but if there's no commitment, you can't love anyone. It's just emotional chaos." That sounds pretty sensible to me, except that Liza is stuck in a horrible marriage, with a husband who cheats on her with men more than women. Last time I saw Liza, she laughingly said that once her husband had a box of condoms mailed to their house, and she knew that none of them would be used with her.

    A couple of weeks ago, I had a few beers with Christopher DeGroot, the Taki columnist. In his early 30's, Chris is still in the dating game. Chris pointed out that tests have proven that women routinely overrate themselves, so that your average woman, a 5, to put it crudely, actually thinks she's a 7, 8 or 9, so deserves a 7, 8 or 9 "alpha" male, thus leaving your average guy loveless and sexless.

    It is grim.

    Liza’s advice makes good sense and ties in with another expression I’ve heard: ‘In the West, you marry who you love. In Asia, you love who you marry’.

    your average woman, a 5, to put it crudely, actually thinks she’s a 7, 8 or 9, so deserves a 7, 8 or 9 “alpha” male, thus leaving your average guy loveless and sexless.

    This seems to be a Western problem. Most girls have a very loud and pressing biological clock and yet the ‘Forever 21′ culture convinces them that their liberated lifestyle is more important.

    DeGroot doesn't realize that men have "best before" dates, too, and a single man in his thirties -- especially one who relentlessly complains about women in print -- is very likely still going to be a single man in his forties...and for the rest of his life.
    If he was decent marriage material, he would have been married a decade ago and by now have kids, including a son in the fourth grade he could be teaching to throw fast balls and field grounders. But even if he were to marry this afternoon, he'll never do that, because he'll be too old.

    It seems there are 3 values: Material status, attractiveness, and biological viability. Both men and women can increase material status at the expense of attractiveness, but men retain biological viability while women lose it as an inevitable side effect of aging.

    So in other words, it depends on the man. If he’s got nothing to show for his wasted years, then your predictions ring true. But if he’s spent his time acquiring wealth, power, and worldly wisdom, then these added values can more than compensate for his loss of physical youthfulness.

    RIGHT MORE OFTEN THAN THIS

    Well I don't know SPECIFICALLY what Southeast Asian you are and I do suspect you have Chinese blood SOMEWHERE though I doubt you are a Chinese national because they do not know or care about the ructions in Southeast Asia towards the Fuji merchant class.

    Let me ask you this...would you know what white country I was from if I had not already mentioned I'm German-American?

    "Wrong"

    You mean to tell me you are white? I doubt that. If you tell me you are a "Westerner" I'd be in disbelief. Truthfully, I know for fact you are not an East Asian (Korean or Japanese) either. Your responses are too hot under the collar and knee-jerk. You could be South Asian, but I think the possibility is remote.


    "Wrong II"

    Okay, you've got me there. You're not Chinese, but seemed informed enough of their status as the market-dominant minority of Southeast Asia to be on their periphery.

    "Self-Assured Ignorance"

    Where would you have such extensive interactions with German-Americans, pray tell? Not only are you a Westerner (Which I doubt) but you grew up somewhere in North America with a significant German Lutheran population?

    "Self-Assured Ignorance"

    Why the fixation with Americans, or specifically European-Americans?

    Do we make your dick feel that small as an Indian or an Asian?

    I can never understand the endless focus on North Americans.

    The United States never had colonies except for the Philippines. Why aren't you obsessed with the Brits or whoever actually administered your colony?

    Being an American who has spent my entire life abroad, I could never understand why foreigners are so fixated on the place. Hollywood? Half the stars are from Europe (Arnold, Van Demme) or Britain. Cultural colonization?

    Instead of "unmasking yourself" why not answer this. Why the obsession and focus with a bankrupt country run by a syndicate of Jewish bankers and filmmakers that is geographically isolated by two oceans.

    Do the big dicks and height of white Americans make you feel inferior or what? The nice teeth?

    Indians are the most fly-by-night folks in Southeast Asia, hands down. Sure, I moved around a bit from the Philippines to Dubai and even did a short bit in Bangladesh.

    But an Indian like you can hardly accuse a white of jumping around.

    At any rate, Brahmins are a match for the most ugly American in terms of self-assured arrogance. I had a run-in with a Brahmin man in Dubai because I had a fling with his wife.

    Actually, a run-in with one or two Brahmin, which happens because those are the Indians that come into contact with white expats being the top of your food chain.

    So it was not just Chinese-Filipinos. I privately harbored a dislike for Brahmin that I had to work with (In Dubai) as well.

    As Indian, why aren't you fixated on "Goras" from the UK? What does the United States have to do with the position of Indians in Malaysia. The British were the ones that took you there.

    I thought the Indians in Malaysia were all Tamil or Bengali, truthfully. So no, I would have never made you for a North Indian.

    Now my worst flare-up actually came in Dubai with a Brahmin Bengali Gaur guy whose wife I'd been having a fling with. Just for the record, the closest I came to physical threats was not from Chinese-Filipinos threatening to deport me for firing them but from a Bengali in Dubai who did not make a shit to the Arabs but was mad at me for carrying on with his wife.

    Anyhow, enough of my own boring personal history.

    DANIEL & INDIA

    My work in Dubai for expats led me to a brief employment for a redneck from Ohio named Daniel who was married to a then-unknown Indian actress.

    I've seen Daniel in the news from time-to-time, his wife became quite famous. He's a tall redneck with a load of tattoos and slow Southern twang to his voice. I thought he was a redneck pig.

    So I did a job for him in India-never mind what-when he first moved to the country from the US. This was BEFORE his wife got on the television show.

    She was a fat Sikh pig from Ontario. I could not believe that she would ever be famous and told Daniel he should just pack it in and move back to the United States. He was a welder by trade-his Dad owned a steel company at one time-but was an aspiring rock n roll singer. At the time I did this job in India for him, he was her half-baked manager.

    The amazing thing about Daniel, the most arrogant and ugly American I met overseas and in India (Where there are not many Americans) is that he lasted. Every Indian I ever met despised him.

    Of course he was big and could handle himself, but Goras sometimes get jumped in Andheri.

    Boys II Bums

    Gen Y vs. Gen X

    Your second example underscores the reason that Gen X born in the 70′s and Gen Y born in the 90′s have such a “generation gap”. As a person who was born in 1974, Gen Y seem really pitiful and derelict.

    To begin with there is, as you mentioned, the porn addiction. Back in 1994 when I was 20 years old, you had to haunt sleazy sex stores downtown to be a porn addict where you purchased video cassettes or masturbated in filthy “booths” where some owners let crack whores enter with you and for $30 they would suck you off for their next hit of crack cocaine (This was Detroit, then).

    Only budding serial killers and dirty old men were porn addicts in 1994.

    Today, it seems as if Gen Y are drooling chronic masturbation addicts. I get onto Return of Kings and all they do is talk about how they cannot stop jacking off!

    NB It is not surprising that so many Gen Y women enter porn.

    When I was a kid, porn was for 16 year old kids who’d just discovered flogging the dog!

    Since so many Gen Y live at home they must have to lock the door to their bedroom so MOM DOESN’T WALK IN.

    The second feature of Gen Y is that they live at home. In 1994, most 20 year old males were long-gone. Either to college, or work or the military. This created other problems because you had to share a filthy apartment with other bachelor pigs who kept their bong on the living room table or got blowjobs on the balcony that you walked in on or there were arguments about the phone bill.

    Partly this is economic and partly there is an immaturity to Gen Y because the 90′s was a great age of middle-class prosperity when they were kids.

    It is really weird for Gen X to comprehend the situation of Gen Y. For example, I wa
    s employed in a foreign country at 25 and moved out of my house at 19. This was normal for people born in the 1970′s.

    I can never understand the endless focus on North Americans.
     
    It's just that they stand out by their sheer inability to fathom that other countries might have different perspectives. Europe is supposedly the mother of America, and yet Europeans are inherently much more capable of attuning to cultural differences and perceiving subtle nuances that pass Americans by. Ironically, Americans have most in common with mainland Chinese, who also live in a bubble and spend their time getting high off their own flatulence.

    Instead of “unmasking yourself” why not answer this. Why the obsession and focus with a bankrupt country run by a syndicate of Jewish bankers and filmmakers that is geographically isolated by two oceans.
     
    I don't recall making a big issue out of it. For myself, America is pretty passe. Aside from using US dollars for international transactions, America has no direct economic relevance to myself.

    As Indian, why aren’t you fixated on “Goras” from the UK? What does the United States have to do with the position of Indians in Malaysia. The British were the ones that took you there.

    I thought the Indians in Malaysia were all Tamil or Bengali, truthfully. So no, I would have never made you for a North Indian.
     
    Mostly they're Tamil with a few Malayalams thrown in there for good measure. Sikhs are present although confusingly they're called 'orang bengali' even though they're from entirely the opposite side of India and speak a totally different language. Actual real Bengalis are not so common, except for Bangladeshi workers who are ubiquitous.

    I agree that it was a culmination of factors resulting from letting Fuji merchants run rampant over the economy that led to smoldering resentment.
     
    Nope. It was the same as India/Pakistan. The British left a power vacuum, the natives came to realize 'There Can Only Be One' and then all hell broke lose. In both cases, the flames died down when a new power structure was (grudgingly) agreed upon.

    Of course not, these girls are married to other Chinese family cartels for strategic business purposes.
     
    You absolute bellend. I can't speak for the Philippines but in MY/SG, the young middle class Chinese marry for love. It's up to them who they chose to marry, and the parents only need to rubber stamp the deal. There's plenty of choice and, while status is an issue, it's more about ensuring the husband can provide rather than forging long term business links. Business is too dynamic for that kind of nonsense nowadays.

    A few, very few, will marry a Westerner.
     
    The number is actually quite large, given that there are relatively few suitable Westerners available. Westerners are rare to begin with, and then they need to be a professional who is willing to settle down long term. Most Westerners (like yourself it seems) have real trouble settling into Asian cultures and are unwilling to spend the time needed to learn multiple languages and complex social interactions. Who wants to marry someone who's going to get bored and go home?

    No you’re not. You’re offended that some white expat who spent half of his 44 years in Asia has a few cynical opinions and carries around some dislike for Chinese-Filipinos because of a rough experience with them.
     
    You spent 22 years living somewhere you hated? Wow. You must have been desperate. I'm sorry for your loss, but please understand that you could have done so much better if you were living in a more agreeable part of Asia. Why live in a shitty part of the Philippines, when you could have been living in a nice city in Thailand or Malaysia?

    You don't seem to understand that the character of the Chinese varies from region to region. I notice the shittiest Chinese tend to be cut off from progress and live in backward areas surrounded by non-Chinese. The best kind are the modern cosmopolitan English-speaking type who live in the cities.

    Perhaps your experience is just out of date?

    DANIEL & INDIA

    My work in Dubai for expats led me to a brief employment for a redneck from Ohio named Daniel who was married to a then-unknown Indian actress.

    I’ve seen Daniel in the news from time-to-time, his wife became quite famous. He’s a tall redneck with a load of tattoos and slow Southern twang to his voice. I thought he was a redneck pig.

    So I did a job for him in India-never mind what-when he first moved to the country from the US. This was BEFORE his wife got on the television show.

    She was a fat Sikh pig from Ontario. I could not believe that she would ever be famous and told Daniel he should just pack it in and move back to the United States. He was a welder by trade-his Dad owned a steel company at one time-but was an aspiring rock n roll singer. At the time I did this job in India for him, he was her half-baked manager.

    The amazing thing about Daniel, the most arrogant and ugly American I met overseas and in India (Where there are not many Americans) is that he lasted. Every Indian I ever met despised him.

    Of course he was big and could handle himself, but Goras sometimes get jumped in Andheri.

    "Wrong"

    You mean to tell me you are white? I doubt that. If you tell me you are a "Westerner" I'd be in disbelief. Truthfully, I know for fact you are not an East Asian (Korean or Japanese) either. Your responses are too hot under the collar and knee-jerk. You could be South Asian, but I think the possibility is remote.


    "Wrong II"

    Okay, you've got me there. You're not Chinese, but seemed informed enough of their status as the market-dominant minority of Southeast Asia to be on their periphery.

    "Self-Assured Ignorance"

    Where would you have such extensive interactions with German-Americans, pray tell? Not only are you a Westerner (Which I doubt) but you grew up somewhere in North America with a significant German Lutheran population?

    Why have you replied 3 times to one of my posts and twice to the other? I’m honored, yet bewildered.

    You mean to tell me you are white? I doubt that.

    You doubt it? Ok then.

    Where would you have such extensive interactions with German-Americans, pray tell?

    I’d pegged you as an American, not specifically a German-American. Americans stand out a mile and the differences between different subgroups are comparatively minor.

    Do we make your dick feel that small as an Indian or an Asian?

    So I’m Indian now? That is now four times that you have been wrong, good saaah. *wobbles head*

    I can never understand the endless focus on North Americans.

    It’s just that they stand out by their sheer inability to fathom that other countries might have different perspectives. Europe is supposedly the mother of America, and yet Europeans are inherently much more capable of attuning to cultural differences and perceiving subtle nuances that pass Americans by. Ironically, Americans have most in common with mainland Chinese, who also live in a bubble and spend their time getting high off their own flatulence.

    Instead of “unmasking yourself” why not answer this. Why the obsession and focus with a bankrupt country run by a syndicate of Jewish bankers and filmmakers that is geographically isolated by two oceans.

    I don’t recall making a big issue out of it. For myself, America is pretty passe. Aside from using US dollars for international transactions, America has no direct economic relevance to myself.

    As Indian, why aren’t you fixated on “Goras” from the UK? What does the United States have to do with the position of Indians in Malaysia. The British were the ones that took you there.

    eh meera dost, main bhi thora hindi janta hai … magar main hindustani nahin hai!!!

    I thought the Indians in Malaysia were all Tamil or Bengali, truthfully. So no, I would have never made you for a North Indian.

    Mostly they’re Tamil with a few Malayalams thrown in there for good measure. Sikhs are present although confusingly they’re called ‘orang bengali’ even though they’re from entirely the opposite side of India and speak a totally different language. Actual real Bengalis are not so common, except for Bangladeshi workers who are ubiquitous.

    You're not, its the same tired refrain about Americans being loud and arrogant and full of themselves that makes most of us lie and claim to be Canadian so that we are not bored with the obsession with the US that people like you have...it got worse during the Bush era.

    Why the anti-Chinese riots in Malaysia then?
     
    A country was forming from disconnected settlements. In the past, villages were far apart and towns were small. People lived separately and didn't trouble each other. Ostensibly, the sultans and the British were in control (the exact balance depending on which state) whereas realistically, the Chinese lived and prospered autonomously and had their own internal mechanisms for law enforcement and protection. As Malaysia developed and grew into a unified whole, the Malays realized that all the time spent 'lepaking' had left them at a massive disadvantage vs. most of the Chinese and some of the Indians. They consider themselves to be the original people of the Malay peninsular (never mind the orang asli, and never mind that so many 'Malays' are actually descended from Bugis or Orang Pattani or misc. Sumatran tribes) and hence resented the reality that 'foreign' people were further ahead in 'their' land.

    Nothing's actually changed since then, it's just that the Malays are kept pacified with government jobs, guaranteed places in university, and all sorts of discounts, handouts, and entitlements.

    The Fuji Chinese treat employees like farm animals
     
    In my experience, they treat them as they deserve. If an employee is genuinely diligent and up to Chinese standard, they'll treat them with respect. The reality is that a lot of workers are simply quite useless and cause fuckups left right and center.

    are actually racist towards Malays whom they regard as promiscuous stupid idlers (Which they are though Islam keeps this at bay)…etc. etc.
     
    Malay girls are reputed to sleep around a lot more than Chinese girls, so this isn't unjustified. But that's not the issue at all and, outside of getting married, Chinese don't give a damn who sleeps around and who doesn't. Their main issue with the Malays is that they perceive them as useless entitled princesses, who are better worked around than worked with. This is why they have a strong preference for employing Bangladeshis and other foreign workers whenever possible, who have similarly low standards of productivity, but not nearly such high expectations.

    As for corruption and bribery, when the Americans owned the Philippines or the Dutch owned Indonesia or the British owned Hong Kong this was under control. It happened, but not at the government-levels administrated by the Europeans.
     
    In other words, when the natives took over governance, integrity went out of the window, along with every other marker of good performance. And you blame the Chinese? I'm really really sorry about your noodles, but why not just tell her you'd prefer to eat breakfast at work?

    He clearly has his biases. Obviously if the Chinese were actually in control, they would not have been slaughtered. Unfortunately, the Chinese largely underestimate the will to violence in many people, and if I do say so myself, as an ethnicity we are really too pussified. It makes us pathetic and barbaric thugs demonstrate their essential superiority in that sense.

    As a market-dominant minority Chinese are just fundamentally unlovely-the Jews are better able to blend in, for example. Brahmin can keep a lower profile. But Chinese are too culturally proud to do such a thing, so its a hostile alien group. Also, in Southeast Asia they tend to side with some politician or another so the masses have another reason to dislike them.

    Of course I do have my biases. And to some degree white expats are competitors in business with Chinese-Filipinos, for example.

    Chinese have behaved like barbaric thugs in cities like Vancouver. White gangs have not wreaked havoc in Beijing as the Triads have in the West-whites are not bringing heroin, human trafficking, gang activity or all the rest of it into China, as Chinese have to the West.

    These are not biases. These are facts. There are whites in China but not the bedlam and vice that Chinese have brought to other countries. Especially the Northeast Chinese and Fuji Chinese. These are the worst thugs, seemingly.

    Chinese are pussified because they've always lived under the umbrella of a powerful ruler who has taken care of security needs and made sure that the way to progress is to conform. Westerners are different because we emerged from barbarism relatively recently and we're still not entirely sure of this 'society' thing. I think Bear Grylls and all of the other survivalists are a good expression of the European (esp. Germanic/Slavic) mind's connection to the primitive lifestyle. Westerners love survivalism, while Asians don't see the point at all.

    Its because the Chinese, unlike the Jewish, do not attempt to subvert the culture they reside in.

    The attitude might be paternalistic, alien, imperialistic or whatever, and it passively does attempt to impose meritocratic values(which yes, are alien values) to the population and it often is associated with an annoying tendency to bribe the elites; but it is a general avoidance of the Jewish tendency to subvert all values and essentially destroy it into a form of neoliberalism. It sets different standards, rather than destroying all standards. For better or worse, its essentially a much more honest approach than subverting the culture, destroying the social environment, and leaving as rootless cosmopolitans.

    But if the Chinese really were barbaric and violent, they would form a dominant elite and simply use force instead of trying to bribe the very people who later kill them(as happened in Malaysia).

    Chinese have behaved like barbaric thugs in cities like Vancouver. White gangs have not wreaked havoc in Beijing as the Triads have in the West-whites are not bringing heroin, human trafficking, gang activity or all the rest of it into China, as Chinese have to the West.
     

    Oh please. Vancouver's violent crime rate in 2016 is 72.8 per 100k; Montreal without Chinese is equal(73) and some cities in Alberta, with overwhelmingly low Chinese population, is at over 100. And the idea that the Anglos didn't bring drugs into China is rich: the Opium Wars are an excellent rejection of that, done by a state entity.

    And if one isn't going to put too fine a point on it, US NGOs essentially serve the same disruptive agency to societal functioning as any criminal organization and heaven knows they operate as widely as the state can push them. Whether pushing homosex or feminism, are such ideological poisons necessarily that much better than chemical poisons? And one can be assured that the moment that weed becomes an widely established industry and maximizes its market share in the US, it will immediately push for its entry into Asia.

    Of course, that won't be "illegal."

    Fortunately, I like to think that the Chinese have learned from their mistakes. In that sense, the Chinese do have much to learn from Russians on not giving a shit about Anglo dominant values, and I very much welcome increasing Russian influence and cultural mores in Chinese(which will hopefully spread to the disapora).

    Bang! You nailed it. It's a purely pragmatic thing because meritocracy is the way to business success. Less intelligent people like Jeff Stryker perceive it as racism and xenophobia, which it's not at all. The only xenophobia is that the Chinese prefer people who can speak Chinese language and understand their social interactions. That's not unreasonable, and Anglos do the same thing by showing a strong preference for foreigners who have mastered their language and customs.

    But if the Chinese really were barbaric and violent, they would form a dominant elite and simply use force instead of trying to bribe the very people who later kill them(as happened in Malaysia).
     
    Chinese violence is never direct physical violence. It manifests itself through imposition of rules and regulations that gradually reduce people's freedom. SE Asian cultures have always valued individual freedom, so that auntie can set up a stall and sell rice by the side of the road when she runs out of money. Try that in Singapore, or one of the new housing developments in Jakarta/Johor Bahru.

    I stand corrected, you're French. My apologies for mislabeling you. Your obsession with US dominance and American cultural colonization should have been obvious.

    Rome and Greece did not emerge from barbarism THAT recently. Being European, you'll probably tell me you are referring to the relative backwardness of Northern Europe in Roman times and to speakers of Germanic languages but in reality the Vikings had a colony in Newfoundland by the 10th century and Icelanders are the descendants of Norsemen who brought Native American women back with them to Iceland.

    In atavistic terms, Asians (And blacks and Hispanics) fear the "bush" because they associate it with danger. It is a primitive, campfire mentality. This is why you'll never see blacks camping in Yellowstone.

    As a market-dominant minority Chinese are just fundamentally unlovely-the Jews are better able to blend in, for example. Brahmin can keep a lower profile. But Chinese are too culturally proud to do such a thing, so its a hostile alien group. Also, in Southeast Asia they tend to side with some politician or another so the masses have another reason to dislike them.

    Of course I do have my biases. And to some degree white expats are competitors in business with Chinese-Filipinos, for example.

    Chinese have behaved like barbaric thugs in cities like Vancouver. White gangs have not wreaked havoc in Beijing as the Triads have in the West-whites are not bringing heroin, human trafficking, gang activity or all the rest of it into China, as Chinese have to the West.

    These are not biases. These are facts. There are whites in China but not the bedlam and vice that Chinese have brought to other countries. Especially the Northeast Chinese and Fuji Chinese. These are the worst thugs, seemingly.

    West-whites are not bringing heroin, human trafficking, gang activity or all the rest of it into China

    Its because the Chinese, unlike the Jewish, do not attempt to subvert the culture they reside in.

    The attitude might be paternalistic, alien, imperialistic or whatever, and it passively does attempt to impose meritocratic values(which yes, are alien values) to the population and it often is associated with an annoying tendency to bribe the elites; but it is a general avoidance of the Jewish tendency to subvert all values and essentially destroy it into a form of neoliberalism. It sets different standards, rather than destroying all standards. For better or worse, its essentially a much more honest approach than subverting the culture, destroying the social environment, and leaving as rootless cosmopolitans.

    But if the Chinese really were barbaric and violent, they would form a dominant elite and simply use force instead of trying to bribe the very people who later kill them(as happened in Malaysia).

    Chinese have behaved like barbaric thugs in cities like Vancouver. White gangs have not wreaked havoc in Beijing as the Triads have in the West-whites are not bringing heroin, human trafficking, gang activity or all the rest of it into China, as Chinese have to the West.
     

    Oh please. Vancouver's violent crime rate in 2016 is 72.8 per 100k; Montreal without Chinese is equal(73) and some cities in Alberta, with overwhelmingly low Chinese population, is at over 100. And the idea that the Anglos didn't bring drugs into China is rich: the Opium Wars are an excellent rejection of that, done by a state entity.

    And if one isn't going to put too fine a point on it, US NGOs essentially serve the same disruptive agency to societal functioning as any criminal organization and heaven knows they operate as widely as the state can push them. Whether pushing homosex or feminism, are such ideological poisons necessarily that much better than chemical poisons? And one can be assured that the moment that weed becomes an widely established industry and maximizes its market share in the US, it will immediately push for its entry into Asia.

    Of course, that won't be "illegal."

    Fortunately, I like to think that the Chinese have learned from their mistakes. In that sense, the Chinese do have much to learn from Russians on not giving a shit about Anglo dominant values, and I very much welcome increasing Russian influence and cultural mores in Chinese(which will hopefully spread to the disapora).

    it passively does attempt to impose meritocratic values(which yes, are alien values)

    Bang! You nailed it. It’s a purely pragmatic thing because meritocracy is the way to business success. Less intelligent people like Jeff Stryker perceive it as racism and xenophobia, which it’s not at all. The only xenophobia is that the Chinese prefer people who can speak Chinese language and understand their social interactions. That’s not unreasonable, and Anglos do the same thing by showing a strong preference for foreigners who have mastered their language and customs.

    But if the Chinese really were barbaric and violent, they would form a dominant elite and simply use force instead of trying to bribe the very people who later kill them(as happened in Malaysia).

    Chinese violence is never direct physical violence. It manifests itself through imposition of rules and regulations that gradually reduce people’s freedom. SE Asian cultures have always valued individual freedom, so that auntie can set up a stall and sell rice by the side of the road when she runs out of money. Try that in Singapore, or one of the new housing developments in Jakarta/Johor Bahru.

    You've never lived in the Philippines. In the West, when a Fuji male has an Aspie outburst it is harmless enough but in a country like the Philippines where even some Chinese-Filipino gambling addict can summon up his family cartel or the co-operation of other Chinoys, its a different matter. In Cebu, there are flare-ups between the Chinese-Filipinos and Spanish Mestizos from time to time (Chinese-Filipinos were the leaders in the Independence against Spain).

    Somewhere like Indonesia where the Chinese have no competing market-dominant minority is a different matter because they have a complete monopoly and simply pay the natives such poor wages that the peasants are too starved to do anything.

    Indians and Chinese seem to co-exist better than Chinese-Filipino and Americans or Spanish-Mestizos in the Philippines. We can speculate as to the reasons.

    "Xenophobia"

    Well there must be some reason why Malaysians or Indonesians massacre them. Daniel has suggested that Jews attempt to turn everyone else into a lesser-ranking Jew through ideological means in the US...I'd argue that Jews in the US possess a higher verbal IQ so it is inevitable that they would drift into media or law. At any rate, while there is a great deal of resentment in the United States towards Jews, they are not the monolithic block like Fuji Chinese in Southeast Asia.

    I don't have much personal experience so I reached out to a pretty good friend of mine, a white expat who relocated there fairly recently. He's a bit different from others in that he was very poor when he moved there to Ortigas, and in a weird way, actually went there to get a job and build a life. Crazy, eh? Well, the Internet is great these days, lets you work offshore, etc. Anyway.

    Anyway, his perception is generally positive. He's fond of President Duterte and says that most of the negativity is always from the media, he never hears of it from the "man on the street." As he's on the poorer side of things, I think he generally perceives things from the less wealthy perspective, and he's mentioned that there is less bribery, and an increasing "green zone" of order and stability seems to be rising. He didn't mention race much in specific, but indicated that he found that the best quality came from small Korean mom-and-pop stores.

    In terms of gangs, he's heard of them but hasn't experienced anything unless he goes to Makati and finds people trying to sell him fake viagra or the like. I asked about about the racial composition and he said that its just that everything is run by "Old Families" that have been dominant, but there's nothing like warfare or much violence that he knows of(he admitted that he tries to avoid those areas, obviously). Mostly he's happy and found that he's more homesick for the PH than anything, when he leaves it to go to work elsewhere(usually Singapore). He feels that the Chinese bring authoritarianism, but also more order and safety; being that he's not rich and likes stability, he is quite supportive of the later. Its not great for the traditional culture, but he said its a step toward First Worldism, not away.

  139. A few whites get rich running girly bars or call centers. For some reason, Chinese-Filipinos do not have any interest in these businesses. Some own factories.

    Under $500 a month it is unpleasant to live in the Philippines but the real hardcore barflys manage to do it (And the guys running away from alimony and the ones who have faked a disability). I knew one pothead named Cedric who faked a back injury and was content to simply smoke pot in a one-room beach villa for the rest of his life. Can be done.

    My own skill-set is a niche and so I ran into the Chinese-Filipinos because many are in the same business. They may have already resented a white guy in his 30′s as a shot-caller but when I had to fire one (Not my decision) things went haywire. But in that instance, other Chinese-Filipinos backed my play.

    I say Chinese-Filipino but they are from the Fuji Province. A good number of them were born in there, like Henry Sy.

    Chinese-Filipinos have always had a rocky relationship with whites. They were oppressed by the Spanish and when they fought in the Independence from Spain, which failed, they were horribly retaliated against. Then the Americans chose to form alliances with the Spanish Mestizos, their competitors.

  141. Its more complex than that. The Chinese fought the Spanish and the Spanish put down the revolt-because many of the Chinese were at the forefront they were particularly punished for their participation.

    The Spanish might have simply seceded the colony like anywhere else but when the US invaded the Philippines the Spanish abandoned the country, but their children with local women inherited vast land and did not return to Spain (Though to this day most are dual-citizens of Spain).

    The Chinese-Filipinos, having no pedigree, will do anything to make money as Fuji Province peasants will. They started the meth trade. And so on.

    Its more complex than that. The Chinese fought the Spanish and the Spanish put down the revolt-because many of the Chinese were at the forefront they were particularly punished for their participation.

    The Spanish might have simply seceded the colony like anywhere else but when the US invaded the Philippines the Spanish abandoned the country, but their children with local women inherited vast land and did not return to Spain (Though to this day most are dual-citizens of Spain).

    The methamphetamine that floods the Philippines is made in China or Taiwan, so actually stamping out the Chinese labs is impossible. Shooting people who eat sweets does not stop the cultivation of sugarcane.

    Duterte has tried to sweet-talk China, admonish them etc. to stop shipping meth to Philippines that fuels the corruption and crime. China has not done so and Duterte cannot kill the lab owners in Taiwan. You don't stop cavities by shooting people who eat candy, you have to kill the sugarcane farmers.

    As for the Spanish Mestizos, it is the same from Mexico to Philippines.

    Women have a biological escape clause-they can simply jump ship while males will invariably go down on the sinking ship as the losing side. So the Filipino women like Amerindian women in Latin America can simply marry the Spanish and then the Mestizo children remain the ruling elite.

    So the only way to stop slavery would be to kill all potential slaves, for example? That's pretty illogical. I don't like cavities, should I launch an attack on sugar manufacturers? Am I incapable of avoiding choices that are harmful to me? That's essentially no different from the equally silly idea that American urban centers are "food deserts" and that blacks are mind-controlled to buy fatty, harmful food.

    Ugh.

    Indeed, on that note, how many nations has Singapore or Japan invaded yet to stop drug intake? Both have staggeringly low drug consumption rates, although they of course have well-known "exit valves" by which individuals could go out and get drugs(Thailand, for example). But - basically - of course you can control demand with enough authoritarianism(and some other measures); its ultimately a question of cost both opportunity and material, and how much of a solid government that you have to work with.

    My friend in PH mentioned specifically that, incidentally. The "penalty for drug distribution is death, and we enforce this law" was very memorable to him when he was doing his gig in Singapore. And as he noted, its working so far in the areas he has seen.

    No, it would be to kill the boat captains and the kidnappers.

    Philippines did a fairly good job of stamping out meth labs IN the Philippines long before Duterte-sometimes Chinese nationals, sometimes Koreans, a few times Punjabi.

    But Duterte cannot kill people in Taiwan, the way station for Chinese ingredients then shipped to Chinese distributors in the Philippines. He's chased down a few smugglers in Philippine waters, not many.

    The Dutch in Taiwan were defeated by Koxinga and the remnant Ming army; his army and navy consisted heavily of Fujianese and Guandong elements, but really being remnant loyalist army had individuals from everywhere(even "Black-boys", or former Dutch black slaves). To my knowledge, the only evidence of Indochinese involvement IIRC were two Dutch interventions from SEA Asia to relieve the siege that were defeated in naval battles.

    At any rate, the Dutch had lost every single battle both naval and ground leading up to the siege to regular Ming forces. It was a stupid war to begin with anyway, Holland did tell the colonials(especially after the early defeats) not to pursue it further.

    No matter.

    The anti-Chinese riots of Malaysia and Indonesia had nothing to do with Islam or Jihad whatsoever.

    Nor did I sleep with anyone's wife in the Philippines. As I mentioned, that incident occurred with an Indian in Dubai.

    I just gave evidence to the contrary. The latest riots in Jakarta started because Ahok quoted from the Koran, and the Islamists saw an opportunity for causing trouble. These guys are such clowns that one of them tried to hide his employment history by misspelling pizza hut as fitsa hats.

  152. “I gave evidence to the contrary”

    They’ve written piles of books (Like Amy Tan’s WORLD ON FIRE) about the subject of what motivated the anti-Chinese riots and it seems to be the same arrow of resentment that Europeans possessed towards Jews, or the Africans towards the Gujarati.

    Your dubious links are not worth posting-I don’t believe what somebody wrote on the internet anyhow, because anybody can do so.

    “Crappy places”

    Yes, Gen Y, once upon a time 25 year old adults moved to whatever place the job was offered and left home at age 19. People born in 1974 had no choice, the economy was better then and our parents would not have us sitting on our ass in the room we were born after high school or college.

    I did not work with any co-ethnics(or whites, for that matter) in that, though perhaps I should have(maybe). I generally attribute the cause to overall mismanagement, to which the embezzlement was just one aspect of it.
