Convinced I was destined to become an oil painter, I attended art school, and during my art fag days, I honed in on art museums, wherever I went. As a writer, however, I quickly realized I needed to scrutinize the streets, for even without people, a community reveals much about itself through its houses, shops, and how these are laid out.

A few hours roaming the alleys of Naples, for example, will teach you more about Neapolitans than the same amount of time at its archeological museum, though of course, you should also check out the astonishing Farnese Bull, with its matchless ensemble of humans and animals, carved from a singled block of marble, with everything perfect, even the bull’s well-articulated asshole. Now, that’s artistic piety!

The Japanese hate trash on the streets so much, they don’t even have garbage cans on sidewalks, for you’re not supposed to do anything in public to generate trash in the first place, no eating while walking, no smoking even. In Germany, public toilet stalls often have scrubbers, so that you can clean up after yourself if necessary. In Thailand, car horns are rarely heard, but in Vietnam, the beep beeping from motorbikes has become part of the white noise.

I just got back from a week in Malaysia, where I spent each waking minute on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Penang, Kajang, Ipoh, Bidor or Tai Ping. (Johor Bahru I had glimpsed on another visit.) I spent much of my time with John Tang, a 73-year-old structural engineer with an architect wife. Together, we read buildings.

Born in Malaysia, John got a degree from John Hopkins in Baltimore, and was supposed to make his career in the United States. His first stop was Washington D.C., where he stayed for a few months with an American sponsor. “When I first arrived, he said to me, ‘This is the greatest civilization ever, kid, and you’re going to be a part of it!’” John met the Malaysian ambassador, had a visit from a Kuala Lumpur girlfriend, got a job at Sears.

“I didn’t like it, so I came back here. I missed the food!” We were sitting at Fun Kee Bamboo Noodle, a Cantonese joint John had eaten at for over four decades.

“And it’s not just the food, but the ambience,” I added. “Just look at this place!” Old school, it had worn marble tables, white tiled walls and a small plastic sign advising customers not to spit.

As is common in sultry Southeast Asia, the entire front was open. Eleven ceiling fans whirled. At a round table out back, an old guy sat in his thin tank top, looking, well, just like me back in Saigon. Extreme heat makes people more casual, even sloppy, but Malaysia is nowhere nearly as messy or chaotic as Vietnam. Though not Singaporean spotless, it’s clean enough.

“That waitress is married to the owner’s son,” John pointed. “She’s Indonesian. I know her mom, too. She worked here for 25 years.”

“Is she still here?”

“No, she went back to Indonesia.”

Behind the cash register, there was a small, glass paned bookcase with volumes by Ishiguro, Alice Munro, Roald Dahl, O Henry, D.H. Lawrence, Dostoyevsky, Narayan, Art Buchwald, Sting and Woody Allen, etc. There were also several books on Lee Kuan Yew. A small blackboard featured a quote of the day, such as, “BOOKS AND NOODLES KEEP ME ALIVE!”

Though busy, the owner dropped by to say hello, and was delighted to have a visitor from Vietnam. I told him I liked his books, and John said I was a writer. On our second visit a few days later, the bespectacled man refused to charge us for our meals!

The neighborhood had many small Chinese factories, an urban industrial area. It’s sliced in half by a four-lane street, Sungai Besi. “They put that in to destroy the community,” John commented.

Whether by malice or just sheer incompetence, Malaysia is comprehensively marred by bad planning decisions, but you wouldn’t know this from afar, for the Kuala Lumpur skyline, with its Petronas Towers and other iconic buildings, simply looks marvelous in photographs.

Consider the Jamek Mosque. Designed by an English architect, Arthur Benison Hubback (1871-1948), it’s one of the most beautiful in a country dotted with ugly, soulless mosques, many of which resemble tacky casinos or even strip malls. Built at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers, it’s best viewed from a bridge on Leboh Pasar Besar, but even this vista is blighted by “KUALA LUMPUR” in big, bright yellow lettering, spelled out for the tourists, I suppose, just in case they forget where they are.

Besides the Jamek Mosque, Hubback is also responsible for the resplendent Sultan Abdul Samad Building and old Railway Station, designed in the Indo-Saracenic style, itself inspired by Mughal Architecture, another hybrid. Fusion is often delightful. Foodwise, there are quite a few Malaysian dishes that mix Chinese, Indian and/or Malay influences, so I had fried tofu with a fiery peanut sauce at an Indian buffet, and curry mee at a Chinese eatery.

Approaching the mosque’s entrance, I ran into an electrical building which I mistook for a public restroom, then I was dwarfed by huge, steel-poled parasols. Clearly modeled after those in Medina, Saudi Arabia, they looked elegant enough, but their placement added to the confusion of the layout and obscured the mosque itself.

Since it was near iftar, there were throngs of people, all eager for their communal fast breaking meal. Suddenly splashing on water, I thought it might have come from an overflowing restroom, but then I traced its source to a badly designed pool, with one corner lowered to accommodate a ramp, so that water was forever spilling from it.

Staring at John, I asked incredulously, “How do they let that stand?!”

Intercepted by all the tacked-on pavilions, parasols, fountains, pools and landscaping pods, I never made it to the Jamek Mosque.

Jamek Mosque is on Tun Perak Street, named after a 15th century Malay statesman. Over this major thoroughfare is plunked a huge and hideously ugly elevated railway. Adding gloom to downtown, it also obscures several beautiful, mostly Colonial-era buildings.

Much of Malay history is reconstructed from sketchy documents and scant artifacts, with its golden age that of the sultanate of Malacca, an entity that was defeated in 1511 by an invading Portuguese armada of 16 ships carrying 1,009 men. Interestingly, the Chinese and Indian residents of Malacca sided with the Portuguese, so were not violated during the ensuing sack.

Where I stayed in Kuala Lumpur was also an architectural horror. For four nights, I paid just $27 per, and for this, I got a modern bedroom, living room with a flat screen TV, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and balcony. Conveniently located, I could reach downtown after a brief train ride, or a stimulating hike through several lively neighborhoods, starting with the slightly seedy yet bustling Chow Kit, so what’s the catch? First of, it had no clear entrance, so even after two days, I couldn’t quite believe that one had to walk on a car ramp to enter the underground garage, from where one could take the correct elevator to one’s floor. Thirty-three story high, the Regalia Residence Suites is clearly a failed condominium, with its rooms now rented out to hapless tourists from unlikely countries. Each time I walked into an elevator, I saw an array of confused or embarrassed faces, of all colors.

Its three massive towers look inward, so from my 29th floor balcony, I could only see hundreds of identical balconies, and thousands of identical windows. It was like being swallowed by a towering well, a sensation that induced both claustrophobia and vertigo. Inside, I must keep all windows veiled or shut at all times, to prevent thousands of eyes from intruding. As a hotel, this was merely awkward, but as a day-to-day habitat, it’s insufferable. No sane person can live like this. Imagine raising children in such a panopticon, with each exit or entry a dispiriting experience.

The most impressive public buildings in Malaysia were built by the British, and the most beautiful houses are Chinese, with Penang managing to preserve a vast and exquisite collection. Elegantly proportioned and tastefully colored, Malaysian Chinese shophouses freely incorporate Western features, such as fluted, engaged columns, half-moon widows, festoons, garlands, plaques, cornices and modern decorative tiles, etc. Nevertheless, they are unmistakably Chinese with their assorted ornaments, red lanterns and a gold and charcoal colored name board over the double doors, with the oldest having protruding wooden hinges. Over their two first floor windows, elongated butterfly-shaped air vents, with fancy grills, are also decidedly oriental. On Penang’s Kimberly Street, I stopped to stare at the phoenix, quilin and flowers on a narrow frieze partitioning the two floors. I also gaped at the tiled eaves.

The founder of Singapore, Stamford Raffles, decreed that a covered walkway fronts all houses, so now, these “five foot ways” are seen all over the Malaysian Peninsular. They shade the shops and provide shelter to stranded pedestrians during a sudden downpour. Several times in Penang, I found myself waiting inside one, ducking the monsoon.

ORDER IT NOW

As for the charmingly stilted and high roofed Malay houses, there aren’t many left, with almost none to be found in urban areas, so a visitor’s only exposure to Malay architecture are edifices are that are nearly always crassly grandiose, desperately Islamic and culturally unconvincing. In downtown Kuala Lumpur, there’s the Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad, which is a Malay house bombastically blown up, fit for Godzilla-sized humans. Though meant to be admired, it’s shoehorned into too tight a lot, and towered over by a mélange of hideous high rises. Since one must climb too many steps to reach its second floor entrance, business is discouraged, so no wonder this Islamic bank is bankrupt.

Malaysia’s mania for megalomaniac buildings can be traced to the Malays’ slight architectural heritage, I believe. The Petronas Towers were the world’s tallest from 1998 to 2004, but now it’s not even number one in Kuala Lumpur, having been topped by The Exchange 106. Under construction, there’s the 118-story PNB118, designed by Australians and built by Koreans, then there’s the 145-story Tower M, to be possibly completed in 2035. With hardly any land, Singapore has a much direr demand for skyscrapers, but its tallest only has 64 floors. It doesn’t need to prove its superiority with huge erections.

Across the Gombak from the Jamek Mosque, there’s an underground parking garage and shopping complex called Dataran. Greeted in eight languages, a visitor enters through an underlit and low entrance that makes him duck, should he be taller than 5’8”, then a musty smell swarms over him when he opens the glass door. Inside, he’s likely to find himself alone as he strolls past one empty store after another.

None of these developments make sense until you realize they’re state-subsidized, for in Malaysia, there’s affirmative action for the bumiputera [sons of the soil], which are Malays and other “indigenous” groups, with even the Kristang, who are of mixed Portuguese and Malaccan blood, qualifying. Causing much resentment, this apartheid excludes and punishes the many native-born Malaysians of Chinese and Indian extractions. As is true everywhere, affirmative action abets incompetence and corruption, not to mention complacency, smugness and anger, for even a beneficiary’s genuine accomplishment becomes suspect.

Typically, the government will award a building contract to a Malay builder, who will subcontract it out to Chinese, so the Malay gets his cut without doing anything.

The state will fund just about any project that benefits the bumiputera, a nursing school, a chain of hamburger stands, etc., so the productive Chinese and Indians are financing the bums, I mean bumiputera, but what usually happens is the affirmative action business will likely fail, simply because it doesn’t have to succeed for Malays to cash in.

From a Malay perspective, however, this is all justified, for the Chinese and Indians will always be outsiders, i.e. invaders, though Malays themselves have overwhelmed dozens of ethnic groups on this very land, starting from a thousand years ago. Strictly speaking, no territory inherently belongs to anybody, but is always contested, violently or covertly. There is no truce in the cultural war.

In 1969, this tension exploded in an anti-Chinese riot, and on Petaling Street, a butcher told John and I that Chinese butchers had to use meat cleavers to chase away the rampaging mob, only to see Malay cops showed up soon after, to shoot at Chinese! The official death toll from this racial disturbance lists 143 Chinese, 25 Malays, 13 Indians and 15 others, but the likely figure, at least for the Chinese, is many times that. As in every country, the sanctioned history omits much, when not distorting events completely.

Though not quite a third of the population, Chinese seem to run at least two thirds of the businesses in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Malacca, etc., with Indians taking much of the rest, so that one rarely stumbles onto a Malay store or restaurant.

At Kuala Lumpur’s exclusive Royal Selangor Club, nearly all the drinkers at the long bar were Chinese or Indians, with Sikh lawyers particularly conspicuous, and at the even more prestigious Penang Club, all of the millionaire boozers were Chinese, and it’s not because Malays, as Muslims, aren’t supposed to drink. They do drink. They just aren’t as rich.

In the club’s karaoke room, middle-aged men and women, mostly Chinese, belted out saccharine American songs, tunes almost no Americans have ever heard of. Wearing a blond or red wig, a few broads danced. Showing plenty of shoulders, arms and legs, they revealed still trim figures. Old Chinese girls just want to have fun.

Speaking perfect American-accented English, a suave Chinese lawyer told me, “We have a board member who wanted to ban pork dishes here [at the Penang Club], because it’s not Islamic, but I said to him, ‘You drink here, don’t you, and that’s not Islamic either,’ so he backed off.”

Another Chinese I met had done business in Vietnam for 23 years, so spoke Vietnamese comfortably, as well as English. He had two children in the United States, and one in England. The watch he wore undoubtedly cost more than your car, and probably more than your house.

Malaysian laws forbid Malays from converting from Islam, so if a Chinese or Indian, say, wants to marry a Malay, he or she must become a Muslim. This religious divide prevents the three major Malaysian races from blending to any degree.

As if being smarter and richer aren’t enough to cause resentment, Chinese have also featured prominently in the now vanquished Communist movement, and at the 1930 founding of the Malayan Communist Party, even Chinese speaking Ho Chi Minh was present. Another Vietnamese, Lai Tek, managed to become its Secretary-General from 1939 to 1947, though it’s now suspected that this half-Chinese was a triple agent, for the French, British then Japanese.

During the Communist insurgency of 1948-1960, 400,000 Chinese were rounded up and confined in “new villages,” and I visited one in Kajang to find a thriving community, with many splendid and comfortable houses, a grand temple, old men relaxing in a park and teenagers playing basketball on a covered court. Of course, they can’t forget how their ghetto was founded.

ORDER IT NOW

There are 1.3 billion Han Chinese, about the same number of Indians, but only 23.5 million Malays worldwide, and they’re barely a majority (54.66%) even in Malaysia, and that’s why they must use their political leverage to get what they can, now. Though many Chinese Malaysians are leaving, a brain drain, other Chinese are moving in, as well as plenty of Bangladeshi, Nepalese, Pakistani, Indians, Filipinos, Burmese, Indonesians and even Vietnamese, many of whom are trafficked in as prostitutes, so this nation, though presently tranquil and prosperous, is not as solidly constituted as it may seem. Demographic upheavals are generally not a great idea, lah! Plus, the strategic Strait of Malacca will be at the heart of the next world war.

Malay has many words borrowed from English, such as aktiviti, kelas, sains, seks and sistem, and going the other way, we have bamboo, compound and amok, with the last defined as a perfectly placid individual suddenly grabbing a weapon to go berserk on innocents, an increasingly common phenomenon worldwide.

With almost no natural resources besides its Chinese majority, Singapore has still outperformed Malaysia economically, but that doesn’t mean it’s a more pleasant place to be. Though John Tang worked in Singapore for many years, he looked forward to each weekend, when he could return to Malaysia, “Crossing that border, I felt like I was leaving a prison,” for it was too orderly, sterile, cheesy and nerdy, with its population treated like children. To get a sense of what I’m talking about, just check out any of its National Day Celebrations on YouTube. They’re downright creepy!

For all of its problems, including institutionalized racism, Malaysia is still a very charming place, with enough fabled history to anchor and season its abundant beauty. With just 37 people per square mile, it’s one of the least populated nations in Asia. By comparison, Singapore has 3,150, Bangladesh 435, South Korea 197, India 159, Japan 130, Philippines 120, Vietnam 112, China 56, Indonesia 54 and Thailand 52.

“This is a kind of paradise, really,” John Tang said as we drove through miles of lush palm trees, with hardly a house in sight. Sunset tinted clouds lurk over indigo hills. The jarring, jutting condominiums won’t appear for a while yet. If life is mostly longueur, then one can’t do much better than spending it here. I know why John came back.

    Even with Affirmative action, the chinese have literally gobbled up the whole place. If not for affirmative action, the Malays would have vanished completely from anything significant in malaysia

    I wish the government in the US would have the same concern for the native stock. It won’t be too long before the whites in the west would be reduced to the status of Malays in Malaysia. Hostile foreigners are pouring in by the truckloads (and the planeloads). One is corrupting the west from below while the others are doing it at the top

    If this continues whites would be reduced to a minority status in their own nations by mid century. Malaysia is smart that way. Otherwise this tiny island race wouldn’t have survived against the Indians and the Chinese (with a combined population of more than 2 billion0. These two folks are the biggest source of legal, “skilled” [much debatable] immigration to the west, where combined with their higher than average IQ, extreme ethnic nepotism and naked greed will ensure they become the administrators to our current (((overlords))). Their hypocrisy belies their external enthusiasm for multiculturalism. China is a Han dictatorship while naked Hindu nationalism [under a veneer of democracy] rules the roost in these two countries. They rightly understand about demographics

    However the current leaders of the west refuse to even look at that practical reality of human society, surely under the supervision of the puppet (((masters))). Kudos to the Malaysian government. Canada and Australia are already on their way to become Chinese colonies while the UK and USA will soon be under the Hindoo boot

    At the risk of another witless ad hominem I would say that importing Brahman into the US has a direct effect on the IT industry but not on the fundamental pillars of the US power structure because banks, media and big businesses are owned by Jews and neither Brahmin nor Chinese are going to change that.

  6. Chinese-Malaysians vs Chinese-Filipinos

    Malaysia is the country Philippines could be if laws had been enacted to reduce Chinese running rampant over the place.

    The Chinese introduced to twin evils to the Philippines: crony capitalism and crystal meth.

    The average Filipino who cannot escape the Philippines is trapped in a miserable hell of “churn jobs” treated like a farm animal by Chinese business owners. His only recourse is to sell drugs, which was a sustainable form of employment until Duterte began killing street addicts and dealers (Which has no effect on the Chinese wholesalers).

    Malaysia’s quotas for natives and stiff drug penalties have reduced the control Chinese can wield over society.

    Another fascinating article by Dinh. His street level view of the world and the ordinary people in it are always a joy to read.

    Also, it is a nice change to see “racism” expressed in ways other than “white oppression” of everyone else. It’s the people who demand that their children learn hard subjects, study, stay sober and save for the future who end up, in the long run, running things. Yes, there can be “ethnic solidarity” but since every group can do that, it is not really an explanation for anything. It’s the groups which encourage productive living which succeed.

    Dinh’s essays are worth far more than dozens of travel articles, magazines, and carefully produced TV or YouTube travelogues.

    Anthony Bourdain was worshiped by the left-popular culture. He was “hip.” Was a decent chef, knew something about food and did some unusual travel shows. Was a heroin addict, failed husband and father and was extremely full of himself. Not a total fool. But he could only wish he was as insightful and grounded as Mr. Dinh. Bourdain killed himself in a depressive snit over his much younger, crazy sometime girlfriend who casually dumped him for a boy toy. Sad, but when you live in the intellectual and spiritual shallows like Bourdain did, being an aging hipster with millions of equally vacant fans does you little good.

    Dinh is cut from an entirely different cloth.

    Poor planning is right. I visited Kuala Lumpur 3 years ago, and was quite surprised to find so many tall and taller buildings being built all around the iconic Petronas Towers, obscuring the view of these beautiful towers from all angles.

    Not surprised with the apt bldg’s poor layout either. Many of their architects and designers are probably affirmative action hacks aka Malay graduates from their own low quality architecture/design schools. But this kind of problem also plagues China. I have heard that bldgs in China are beautiful on the outside, but shoddy construction on the inside. What does John Tang have to say about the country’s poor planning and design skills since he’s in the biz?

    The problem with Malaysia begins and ends with the race based affirmative action. Per The Economist, Malaysia is the only country in the world that has race based affirmative action written into its constitution, a poison pill legacy of the British colonials. University admission was most impacted, where Malay students with C’s and D’s qualify into programs like engineering and medicine, while smart Chinese and Indian kids get “assigned” to majors like Chemistry or Sociology. Needless to say major brain drain ensued as Chinese and Indian kids left to pursue higher ed elsewhere, and never returned. Many of their most capable diaspora now live in Singapore, the rest are in Australia, NZ, Taiwan, HK, Japan, USA, Canada, UK.

    Race-baiters in the US who are constantly pushing for more race based affirmative action need to take a close look at its impact on Malaysia. It is the surest way to promote mediocrity and incompetence. But I supposed that is all by design since those who are in charge prefer to be surrounded by mediocrity to make themselves look better by comparison, like Obama and his cabinet. Affirmative action hacks also make the best puppets, ambitious but not too bright, they are easy to manipulate and lord over, like all those Indian and black CEOs and college deans.

    Bourdain’s a Jew. They’re born arrogant and depressed.

    There was this episode on his show when he was in Hong Kong, his local guide took him to a restaurant. As they sat down to eat, the Chinese guy told him in that typical rude, tactless, blunt Cantonese way: “Everyone knows you in Hong Kong, and everybody hates you.” Bourdain looked stunned, and quite hurt. “Everybody hates me?” The guy repeated what he said. I think Bourdain was expecting him to say everybody loves him. It looked like quite a hit to his ego. He didn’t know that the Cantonese are born haters who hate everybody.

    When I heard about his suicide, I wondered how many times he had thought back to that episode and what kind of impact it had had on him. What a thing to say to someone. Anyone.

    Do you want the whites to end up like the Filipinos in the Philippines and the Indonesians in Indonesia? In both of these places the Chinese have literally taken over the power structure from the majority who are like a minority in their own nations. Duterte is trying to rectify that but I am not sure how far will he be able to go.

    What good is your country when you are reduced to an insignificant entity with no say in the power structure [the US is already that way when (((benjamins))) are in charge of the affairs, who then construct foreign and domestic policies that are detrimental to the original founding stock]. If a white man or an African would immigrate to say China or India, how far do you think will he be able to go as far as politics is concerned? Will he be able to shill for more immigration?? Will China allow that? and if yes how much? Can China allow a million “legal” skilled immigrants from say India to take citizenship there?

    And now the very same (((benjamins))) are slowly genociding the native white population by making sure immigration continues at the same pace. Trump came on a platform of reduced immigration and look what we have now. Illegal immigration continues apace while he says he wants massive amount of “skilled” legal immigration aka a deluge of Hindu code monkeys who will work for pennies on the dollar while pushing the white middle class [or what’s left of it] into working poverty.

    A nation is more than a trade fair and since you yourself seem to be an immigrant in the west, you will never understand what it is like to have your country being transformed in front of your own eyes. I would rather live in a poor but more homogeneous nation that be surrounded by hostile foreigners who have no connection to the blood and the soil of the nation; who are here for the money and intend to kick out or reduce us to serfdom in the very same place our forefathers settled [which is way different than migrating to an already settled piece of land]

    Funny you mention those race riots. I saw this article only a few days ago:
    http://www.magickriver.org/2009/05/no-may-13-no-ketuanan-melayu-reprise.html

    Tunku Abdul Rahman … resigned a sad and broken man after May 13 rather than battle those within Umno who wanted him out.

    Shortly before his death, the Tunku confided – in a series of intimate interviews with K. Das, former bureau chief of the Far Eastern Economic Review, who was working on the Tunku’s official biography – that what happened on May 13, 1969, was really the implementation of a contingency plan to prevent the political opposition (in this instance the DAP and PAS) from forming a parliamentary majority after the 1969 general election. The Tengku actually named FIVE individuals who were the key conspirators.*

    Strategies had been laid long before the general election to spark off “racial riots” – in the event of a poor showing for the ruling party in the polls – that would precipitate the declaration of a state of national emergency….- and the nullification of the 1969 election results. The loss of a few hundred lives was deemed a necessary sacrifice to ensure Umno’s continued dominance and the political survival of the Alliance (now the Barisan Nasional).

    The plan obviously worked. By declaring it a “sensitive” issue, the May 13 plot effectively acquired the status of a national taboo, thereby protecting its perpetrators from a royal commission of inquiry and charges of criminal treason. 35 years down the line, not one of the five key conspirators has ever been exposed and charged with complicity in this deadly and repugnant sandiwara.
    .
    .
    * One of the five May 13 conspirators is still alive and plotting – and among the others, some of their offspring are still active in politics. So I won’t name any of them without proper legal backing or documentary evidence. However, I can drop a heavy hint: two of them subsequently became prime ministers. How did I come by this info? I collaborated with K. Das in 1986 on a book of political quotes and we had a few good conversations over the years.

  19. Okay, this explains the quality of the photos. He was an art major. I was surprised at the disorderly color schemes in Vietnam, especially since I associate them with grayer hues due to a childhood friend whose parents definitely shed that bright, multi-color cacophony aesthetic.

    The Chinese architecture is beautiful, especially the colored architectural detailing. It’s bright but with an underlying order that aligns with color theory. It is not overdone.

    Are Tamils a criminal underclass in Canada? I have heard that some drug-dealing Tamil gangs were funding the Tamil Tigers. My impression of Tamils is that they are nerdish black Dravidians compared to the Sikhs.

    If you are cornered by some Punjabi who looks like Kali the Wrestler in an alley your first thought is “this guy is going to stomp me” but when a black Tamil comes up to you your first thought is “I could kill this guy with a piece of string cheese”.

    You spew a litany of half truths and half fabrication. At least take the effort to googleJewgle about topics you know jack shit off bro

    The vast majority of tamilians in Malaysia are from the lower caste and as such easily given to criminal tendencies, may be not as horrendously as their brethren from the North but still they do. Most criminal gangs in Malaysia are run by tamilians, everybody knows that. Those gangs may pale in comparison to the Punjabi/sikh gangs of Canada which in turn pale in comparison to those south of the Canadian border; but still those are the facts. Look them up sometimes for a change before spewing shit you know nothing about

    You seem pretty bad at comprehension. Get sober and read that again. He said the Indians (dot) and the Chinese are far more likely to work under the supervision of the Joos while displacing the white middle class from it’s position

    Secondly dot Indians had managed to get the Joos out of the diamond industry in Belgium. Now that’s a mean feat. You think the Indians would be content playing second fiddle to the Joos forever? They aren’t filipinos or Malays. Unlike the Chinese who usually stop once they get filthy rich [by any means], Indians not unlike the Jews crave power. And like them they are pretty extroverted generally and good with words. So it’s gonna get much “interesting” pretty soon.

    However, if the white middle class doesn’t respond even after getting kicked out of their middle class complacency by the incoming pajeets and wu-jings, then there really is no hope and deserve to be displaced.

    1) Even with Affirmative action, the chinese have literally gobbled up the whole place. If not for affirmative action, the Malays would have vanished completely from anything significant in malaysia

    Malaysia’s economy post independence was still dominated by big british MNCs. Ever heard of names like Guthrie, Harisons & Crosfield, Harpers-Gilfillan, Sime Darby, British Petroleum, Shell (Anglo-Dutch), Fitzpatricks, etc, etc? The chinese were scrapping the barrel to eke out an existence often at the mercy of the brits and the maniacal malays. They received no quarters from these oppressors and all of them started at the bottom end of the food chain and had to build their businesses from scratch.

    Even with affirmative action, a great majority of chinese do not benefit from the largesse. Government contracts from the largest down to the smallest (class F contractors) are solely the domain of the malays. To eke out a living, chinese contractors had to subcontract work from the malays and more often than not, were either not paid on time or were not paid at all. 90% of university places are given to malays. Some universities are built exclusively for the malays. Malays also gobbled up 90% of the scholarship awards, especially those in overseas tertiary education. All the top government appointments go to malays. Government Linked Companies are staffed with malays from top to bottom. Today, if one wants to list a company on the Kuala Lumpur Stock exchange, one must “allocate” 30% of the share placements to the malays. This has been going on since 1970 – a good 49 years now.

    And despite all the above, malays are stilled mired in poverty and self delusion. After half a century of affirmative action, they are still demanding for more and more handouts. This crutch mentality breeds complacency, a wrong sense of entitlement, abuse of power and process, and last but not least, lends to the rotting of the brain. (Malays are by and large not stupid or lazy. Quite a number have achieve success in life on their own merits) The statistics speak volumes; malays are number one in drug abuse, corruption, low academic achievement, rapes (including a great number of incestous rapes), robbery (snatch thefts, convenient store heists, etc).

    Want to know who is benefiting from the affirmative action? The political fat cats and their cronies (mostly malays with a sprinkling of chinese and indians) who advocated and pushed through affirmative action in the first place. If you take a walk around Kuala Lumpur streets today, you won’t fail to notice the majority of people sitting inside Mercedes Benzes, BMWs, Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porches are malays. Take a drive into any affluent neighbourhoods in KL, most luxury bungalows and villas are malay owned.

    And there are still a great number of poor malays, chinese, indians, kadazans, ibans, bidayuhs, etc, etc…

    2) If this continues whites would be reduced to a minority status in their own nations by mid century.

    Who are you trying to con? With names like Bush, Gates, Koch, Buffet, Walton, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Trump, Bolton, Pompeo, Bloomberg, etc, etc of the WASP and anglo-zionist variety in power and thriving, I am very worried for those with names like wong, kumar, satish, chen, alonso, gutierez, moonblood, etc,etc.

    3) China is a Han dictatorship

    The Han dictatorship does not go around the world doing regime change, color revolutions and arab springs. It does not impose its own ideology on others and it does not unilaterally and illegally wage wars on others if they don’t obey. They are more content on improving their own lot and helping out others who are found wanting on money and expertise. They provide others with plowshares, not swords and spears.

    My Dubai housemaid was Sri Lankan and I got to know her family well as I paid for her son to attend primary school-her husband worked as a cleaner at a hotel. I became aware of the plight of Tamils in Sri Lanka as she was employed by me for 6 years.

    In the Philippines, Indians are the victims of crimes as money-lenders (Robbery, shot by debtors) and not the perpetrators.

    Under the Draconian laws of Muslim Malaysia it is hard to believe that they could have the problems with crime that the Philippines has because anti-drug laws prevent a meth business from creating the rabid junkies that Cebu had.

    Growing up 30 miles from the Canadian border in Detroit I know without a doubt that Indian crime is non-existent on US streets because blacks and Mexicans are simply too numerous, too feral and too widespread for any other ethnic group to compete with…nor do Sikhs have the Italian-American capacity for corrupting law enforcement or the judiciary system or unions.
    Also Indians in the US are Brahmans or Gujarati merchants who are effectively vetted through an extensive immigration procedure.

    1. Well I am not too aware of internal Malaysian political dynamics. I am just happy to see a government that stands for the majority. The Chinese are not being lynched to death by mobs for eating pork as the Muslims in India or the Christians in Pakistan are. And there is no dress code or prohibition of alcohol as far as I can see. So the Chinese cannot be called persecuted in any way except politically. This time around the government has more non malays then malays and that is something one can not imagine in a place like India/Pakistan/China/Zimbabwe etc

    2. Those pond scum do NOT represent the vast majority of whites. These people are globalists and wouldn’t care one white if the whites who built this country [as opposed to the land mass] from ground up were to become a minority. DO you know that by 2040 whites would be less than 50% of the US? Do they care? Not one bit. Heritage Americans placed their hopes on trump and he has been a big dud on everything except Israel aka has become an establishment republican cutting taxes for the rich, increasing legal immigration and doing exactly nothing about the damn WALL. China would have built that wall in 2 months I believe. And immigrants keep pouring in like there’s no tomorrow. Go to the Sea-tac airport or DFW or SFO and all you can see are legal immigrants and their relatives/parents [aka chain migrants]. Trump wants to triple the number of legal immigrants to the US backstabbing the very deplorables who wanted him to curb immigration. This alone would make sure good paying middle class jobs are going to mostly go to them as they have entrenched networks in the industry and ethnic nepotism is a near art form with Indians [and to a lesser extent the Chinese]. Most US cities now have more pedros, joses and guiterezzs than you can count and the tech clusters are filled to the brim with Changs, reddys and Kumars. Can hardly find a white guy there. And trump it seems is delighted. All he cares for are Israel and twitter [to blow hot nothings to soothe his ever angry fan base]

    3. China IS a Han dictatorship yes but I do concede it is NOT a mortal threat to the other nations of the world and it’s surroundings militarily YET. However it sure is a demographic threat along with India which is a much bigger demographic threat to the world. They are sending their folks by the millions and they are usually ending up in the upper crust of those nations. And both groups are highly ethnocentric and tribal. The Chinese tend to be insular but the Indians, like the Jews, are extroverted and are taking up law and finance and media which is a pathway to politics in much of the west. However they are for now much better than the Anglo-zionist empire and the destruction it wreaths. My only point was to highlight that most Indians and Chinese are respectively highly nationalist and majoritarian in their worldview when at home. However one wouldn’t know that in the west as they [especially the dot Indians] talk a big game about the supposed benefits of multiculturalism without any concern for the heritage groups that actually built the US

  30. shame on you Mr Linh Dinh. Your writings are well received by a lot of readers and there results into a huge responsibility for you to ensure that you write and present an accurate picture of what you have seen and experience. You did not and you failed to uphold that responsibility.

    You have discussed matters that you have no intimate knowledge, case in point are the affirmative actions and the 1969 riots that open the gates of insult to the Malaysian Goverment policies and to the racist insult against the Malays.

    I have read the comment sections and I see where Malays are mentioned, it is followed with “maniacal”, “C” and “D” students getting into engineering programs etc. whereas the Chinese and the Tamils students are the hard working and smart people yet were left behind by the policies of the Government of Malaysia.

    hmmm yet when the Portuguese invaded Malacca in 1511, the Chinese and the Tamils were not violated because they sided with the Portuguese and yet today, they are citizens of Malaysia free to live their life in peace; and you sir, presented Malaysia as a racist country only serving and protecting the interest of Malays.

    The Government of Malaysia has put in a policy that tried to address every races need to live in peace. As a Malay and a citizen of Malaysia, I do not appreciate your writing that has the potential to stir insults and emotions of all races in Malaysia leading to path of anarchy and chaos.

    as a friend of mine, a christian Nigerian once said to me two years ago, people who has not experience the brutality of living in a country at war, should work hard to preserve the peace they are enjoying.

  31. @linh so glad you wrote about KL!

    I think KL is the most livable city in SEA (for expats) if you can handle the weather. I’ve lived in 60 countries over the course of two decades, and this is one of the few that I’ve purchased a home in and spent a decent amount of time. And I could live anywhere.

    Phenomenal food from 3 major cultures, homegrown hybrids found nowhere else in the world + very good approximations of East Asian and Western stuff.

    Absurdly cheap, quite-nice housing. The airport is one of the best in the region with the only high-speed rail in all of SEA heading to it.

    Lacks the traffic of Jakarta or Bangkok. No real pollution. World class grocery stores and malls. None of the irritating pomposity of Singapore (which to me just feels like a sweaty Battery Park City: a knock-off Goldman Sachs office built on a mound of swamp trash).

    And there’s no large city in this part of the world with an equivalent amount of wild, verdant greenery: I see monkeys eating longans from trees from my 45th floor apartment!

    The higher price of alcohol (relative) keeps the Eurotrash back in Pattaya or Saigon. Similarly, the lack of overt sex tourism means I don’t have to see all the sad, bloated Brits creepily hanging on to the 20 yr old single moms from Isaan at lady bars.

    True, it it’s an architectural hysterectomy but no one really builds for the future in SEA, and they certainly do not cherish the past.

    If you are ever back down in this way, I’d be more than happy to take you to some great places to eat.

    Why doesn’t the Malay government restrict them? That is what one would expect if their concern was genuinely the welfare of native Malays.

    Not knowing anything about Malaysia, my assumption would be because of pressure from big business (while I expect the Malay elite are very happy with affirmative action business programs that provide an excuse for cronyism and corruption, like in SA).

    Again, the Indian Tamils lead the rankings in terms of rape, mob crime and crime in general. They are actually also poorer than the Malay as well as evidenced by the many videos and pictures of their living standards. Tamils also lead it in robbery and theft stats.

    If the Chinese are or were so smart, China with its 90+% Han “masterrace” population would have made a better country than Malaysia, yet Malaysia has far better infrastructure, exponentially better HDI, 2 × as much GDP per capita PPP, superior living standards, they don’t need to constantly wear masks because of thr awful air quality in the surroundings, they are not constantly entrenched in psychotic bouts of traffic, they don’t have the theft mentality like China and they wont steal intellectual property, they have better healthcare which has actually been readily acknowledged by many organizations….

    “Staffed with Malays”

    Seems like they are doing something right unlike those in the West. They are looking out for the best interests of the native peoples and they have estabilished a system which identifies what ‘bumiputra” entails and the benefits which are eligible to be received therein. They have found a way to clamp down on outsider influence, and they have maintained a grip on their own country, and they have imposed these stringent restrictions to prevent themselves from being displaced and economies annihilated, like we see in Indonesia or Philippines. They, the Malays, are clearly doing something right for themselves, and one should applaud them for such, and possibly even take a page (or a couple) out of their books.

Penang is my favorite place. Penang is probably 50% Chinese, with lots of investment coming in from mainland China. Kulim, about 50 km east of Penang, is nice too. The housing is less expensive than penang. There used to be a semiconductor fab there in the Kulim hi-tech park.

    1) “…The Chinese are not being lynched to death by mobs…”

    For someone who admitted that he doesn’t know much about malaysian politics, you didn’t spare a thought when you mentioned the above.

    May 13 1969, will forever be etched into the DNA of malaysian chinese, present and yet to be born. That day, tens of thousands of politically charged fanatical malays wielding parangs (machetes), molotov cocktails, steel pipes and assorted weapons went on a killing and rampage spree on all things related to the chinese on the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Motor vehicles were torched, shops were burnt and looted, women were raped and killed including pregnant ones, little kids were not spared either. Chinese walking on the streets unaware of what was happening were summarily hacked to death. The police and armed forces who were despatched to supposedly maintain law and order stood-by gleefully watching their fellow malays doing the slaughtering.

    The official toll as reported by the government was a mere 200+ victims. But volunteers (local and foreign) at the hospital mortuaries reported piles and piles of mutilated corpses. To prevent relatives from experiencing the shock and anguish upon seeing these corpses, the government ordered black tar to be poured onto these corpses. Later they were buried in mass graves on the outskirts of KL. Based on volunteers account, the death toll could be closer in the range of 10 – 20 thousands.

    2) So the Chinese cannot be called persecuted in any way except politically.

    Huh? In how many different and separate ways can a minority group of people be persecuted? Anyway you cut it, it always point back to the politics. The worst thing is, it always resulted in blood soaked streets, piles of mutilated bodies and unending quests for retribution. Any rational and fair minded government will never allow the above mentioned event to proceed.

    3) This time around the government has more non malays then malays and that is something one can not imagine in a place like India/Pakistan/China/Zimbabwe etc

    This did not happen through the goodwill of the malays. Power sharing, equal distribution of wealth, minority rights to education in their own mother tongue, the rights to vernacular press and other civil rights are enshrined in the constitution which was agreed upon by all the major races as a precondition to gaining independence from britain in 1957. Even then, some of these agreements were trampled upon by the malays, right up to the present, especially when it comes to “malay special rights”. Do your homework before you write these things.

    4) China IS a Han dictatorship yes but I do concede it is NOT a mortal threat to the other nations of the world and it’s surroundings militarily YET.

    YET, when china was exploring the oceans in giant 400ft long, wind powered vessels numbering in the hundreds with up to 30,000 sailors, soldiers, doctors, marine engineers, farmers, etc; they NEVER CONQUERED AND OCCUPIED a single inch of the foreign land wherever they landed.

    Between 1405-33 ( long before christopher columbus sailed into the “new world” in 1492 in his little tub), china opened the maritime trade routes from the southern port of Quanzhou to the indonesian spice islands of sulawesi, maluku, java, malacca (present day Melaka, Malaysia), goa, cochin (india), the coast of the arabian peninsula, madagascar, and all the way to kenya. Some unproven accounts also mentioned the chinese fleet even sailed within the edge of antarctica by accident, having passed the Cape of Good Hope at the southern tip of africa.

    And YET, despite their size and power, the chinese never setup any military bases in these regions. Almost 100 years later, in 1509, the portuguese came to malacca in their small little “tubs”. Two years later, they brought their warships and about 1,000 soldiers and conquered and occupied the place until they were thrown out by the dutch. And the dutch were later thrown out by the brits. The brits in turn were thrown out by the japs for about 4 years and then had the audacity to come back and tried to reclaim malaya.

    No my friend, the chinese do not possess the expansionary DNA. Had they did, entire swaths of Asia, middle east and africa would have become a bona fide pax sinica by now. And there is no indication they will, unless provoked.

    A rather Sino-centric version of 1969 events Kauchi-

    …A gang of Chinese in Penang had killed a Malay political worker and Chinese youths burning of Malaysian flags at the time of the election was the straw that set the whole pile alight.

    …Chinese Triads were armed and responded with an attack on a Malaysian cinema filled with unarmed Malays

    …Chinese mobs also burned down UMNO headquarters and a Malay police station

    …Malays were armed with machetes while Chinese and particularly Triads were armed with guns and fired upon Malaysian police…even commencing attacks on a Malaysian police precinct.

    …Chinese also attacked Indians, as they have in Singapore during race riots there.

    “The Jews of Asia”

    Unlike Jews, whose control of the mass media and judiciary system allows them to obfuscate their influence and economic clout behind a nationalism and usually are so integrated into white societies culturally and racially that their presence is less noticed the Overseas Chinese Business Community are too left-brained and Aspie to hide their contempt of lower IQ Filipinos or Malays and are simply cold and uninviting shopkeepers.

    “ZHENG HE”

    Chinese may have in fact discovered the California coast but simply did not develop gunpowder (Though inventing it) into a weapon so they could not have ever invaded other countries.

    Nor did they intend to. They traded with Africans and possible even Native Americans but never had any intention of colonization.

    Indonesians were the great seafaring colonists who eventually settled Madagascar. Chinese were never anything more than traders.

    “Expansionary DNA”

    Huns originated in Western China (Though they were more similar to modern-day Uighur than to Han).

Let’s see. India/Pakistan/Sri-lanka/Nigeria all have and still continue to see horrific riots against Ethnic and religious minorities featuring all the blood-shed,rape,butchery that you can expect from third world hell holes. And they are all democracies.

    You know how many riots have occurred in democratic India since it’s independence? OR for that matter since 1969? And it’s a democracy for God’s sake.

    India sees a major riot [ about a couple of hundreds killed/raped in broad day light] like every 5 years yet Indians in Malaysia seem to forget that [people are lynched for eating beef or if they are even suspected for eating beef].

    In Pakistan a mere verbal accusation of blasphemy is enough to start a riot.

    And we all know how the Chinese treat peoples who try to challenge the Han majority and political dissidents. The Chinese people don’t have to take matters into their own hands as the Chinese government does it for them. The repression against Chinese Christians and Chinese Muslims is well known globally. The way China is treating the Tibetans and the Uighur is something you should be ashamed of.

    Once again, how many Chinese are hacked to death for eating pork openly in Malaysia? Like those Indian Muslims or Pakistani Christians? How many Chinese who openly agitate the Malaysian government are put in internment like the Chinese Uighur? A Chinese should be the last person talking about freedom of expression. Its a conformist society with utmost systems of repression and now with the social credit score taking shape, it will make big brother a permanent part of your life.

    I have known a lot of Filipinos and Chinese in my life and I don’t think that getting rid of the Chinese in the Philippines would change life much for the Filipinos. Filipinos can be hard workers, but are too mild and risk averse to want to go into business for themselves. Chinese are natural born businessmen, willing to take risk and create wealth. Observing both races here in North America, Filipinos tend to go into secure government or service jobs and are happy with that, while Chinese seem to be wired for independent business ownership, wealth creation and management. This isn’t to say that Chinese can’t be as crooked as a French Horn dealing drugs, laundering money and every other scheme that they can make a fast buck on, but when they are honest, they get into business much more than Filipinos.

    Malaysia is the prime example why multiculturalism does *not* work. Everybody hates everybody.

    Chinese, Indians and Jews have a lot in common: money hungry, dishonest, unscrupulous, gluttonous, totally lack conscience. Indians are also violent and criminally (for the lower classes), loquacious and power hungry for the upper classes. Jews are all that plus narcissistic, punitive and vengeful. No wonder all 3 groups are hated the world over.

    There’s a reason why God gave them their own countries. The world will be a much better place if we force all Chinese to return to China, all Indians to return to India and all Jews to return to Israel. The presence of any of these 3 groups anywhere always create chaos and animosity the world over.

    Yes that is very true. Stereotypical generalization is something which we ALL engage in, in some or the other form. This is exemplified by Mr. Dinh’s commentary and the comments that follow. It is human nature that cannot be negated. We are still very tribal in nature and those do deny that face the current fate of whites in the west.

    But what holds is that there must be separate places for various races to grow according to their own and not have to worry about folks from other races barging in by the truckloads. For instance the US is currently seeing a huge influx of mestizos and aztecs illegally and Hindus and China-men legally. And anyone who has spent some time around in Central America/Hong Kong/Delhi would tell you how these folks treat people of lower castes/minority faiths/lower classes back home.

    Yet when they come around here, a lot of them sing the tune of multi-culturalism aided by the ever ready hand of (((media))) and pundits who would like nothing more than to wreck host nations [seems to be some kind of genetic flaw with those benjamins). That is sheer hypocrisy. Everyone has a right to their spaces and as long as they are not hunting down minorities or denying them basic dignity, I do not see why should the majority bend over and allow their nations to be over-run by a different peoples.

    If that happens, high IQ folks from low trust nations [high caste Indians/Chinese] become market dominant minorites seething with contempt and ridicule towards the natives whereas low IQ folks [hombres from mestizo-america] end up becoming part of the criminal underclass. Neither is good for the natives

    It is not the lower middle class and working class whites in small towns and cities in the US interior who will lose their jobs but rather white-collar whites in IT or other tech jobs. Indians and Chinese won’t become police officers, firefighters etc. that lower middle class whites do.

I can bet top dollar that had the Europeans conquered the land and settled places like Canada, Indians and Chinese wouldn’t be lining up to settle in these places. Indians especially no.

    A fascinating account from the gifted Linh Dinh who has an effortless way of engaging disparate cultures: observing and recording in a degree of detail that is always enthralling.

    Regarding the institutionalized racism, and few foreign visitors there manage to get any other perspective on the society than that of the Chinese, one does not feel the same suppressed inter-racial hatred you have, for example, in the US or UK – perhaps because there’s no attempt at institutionalized ‘inclusion’. You can freely muse on the social effects of the characteristics of each race in everyday conversation – and of course they are many. People are generally more polite and obliging – and in the streets they look expectantly happier.

    I’ve had some of the best food anywhere in Malaysia too – the Chinese cuisine, with typical Chinese culinary imagination, has adopted so many local wrinkles utilizing the exotic ‘jungle’ spices and herbs so freely available; as well as the ubiquitous ‘belacan’ or fermented shrimplet cake. Going into a ‘padang’ (Sumatran curry) restaurant I noted the chef was making roti using BOTH hands – when I tried to give a tip at the end of the extra-delicious meal, it was politely refused.

    I am extremely enthusiastic also about the toilet arrangements (no, they sure don’t provide brushes) but they do have a flexible water jet (in lieu of paper) which you can use to hose down the porcelain after attending to yourself (left handedly of course). Malaysians have a huge distaste for Westerners’ use of toilet paper as a means of ‘cleaning up’:
    “I look at you guys and I can’t imagine the situation ‘down there’ on a hot day” one remarked – they are always able to wash themselves.

    This particular cleanliness is of course is common throughout the region.

    It’s interesting that much of the crime is blamed on Indonesians (particularly in Saba and Sarawak, with Kalimantan so close). In Saba (East Malaysia) I was warned not to drive along a certain route through the northern mountains because it is dangerous – I assumed that was probably due to flash floods or landslides but I learned, after returning from a w0nderful peaceful drive, that the danger was from bandits who might just as well kill you – after having finished robbing and raping you – since the death penalty applies in either case.

    Your average Filipino or Indian would shrug and say that it is European-American’s choice in small towns and cities to get hooked on meth or Opoids and find himself brutalized in prison with a felon sheet. Or that it is Jane’s decision to get pregnant at 20 and be a single mom because Dad is a whigger who has no job prospects. They would say that the whites who find themselves trapped in bad neighborhoods in houses with no property value should have been paying attention to the market.

    Most people will attribute this to cultural degradation and this is of course true but the Asian or Hindu will shrug and say that the European-American is a fool for believing Hollywood.

    These people come from low-trust societies where nobody trusts anyone and so they are skeptical of everything but money-the only language they all share.

    European-Americans also buy into the writings of Ayn Rand (A Jew who would never have been published without her ethnic support network, naturally) or cowboy icons like Eastwood who are individualists and rugged self-sufficient loners who ride into the sunset alone.

    Italians, Hindus, Muslims and Filipinos of course celebrate none of this and rely on extended families or tribalism without which, you are not going to have much in the US. Those who succeed in America are not rugged loner pioneers but gangsters or nepotists whose ethnicity is half extended family and half-government.

    Felch-breath Homosexuals in San Francisco could care less if European-Americans biology and tradition results in a family and European-Americans struggle to support it because homosexuals have 500 anonymous partners a year.

    The DINK couples don’t care if the schools get horrendous and lower to lower middle class European-American kids drop out ASAP because these schools are so violent and all they learn is Extortion 101 and Black Maiming 201.

    The Filipino or Korean or Hindu cares for nothing related to European-American traditions or culture. They are not here for religious freedom or Freedom of Speech and would not care if the country was run by Satanic devil worshipers…They are here for money. Cash. Material goods.

    None of these Hindus or Filipinos or Arabs are ever going to live in a small city or town with poor people.

    However, the comments on this thread regarding the Tamils in Malaysia do not mesh with the experience my parents had with the Tamils over there. Both of my baby-sitters were Tamil, one was a Sri Lankan Catholic and the other an Indian Hindu. Both got along great with my parents as they entrusted me to their care.

    My parents also mention that Tamil movies played on Malaysian television and that I used to watch them as a kid, and that I was supposedly enthralled by their big, gigantic heroes.

    My school-daycare was run a Chinese Christian family. Looking at my pictures from that daycare, it was a very diverse, with Indians, Pakistanis, a few Arabs, and of course Chinese.

    Can somebody explain what’s wrong with just going back to a hardscrabble life the way their ancestors did?

    Okay so the coal’s gone, the manufacturing is dead. Time to pick up a shovel and start farming the way your great-great grandparents did. They seemed to have no issues with living in poor, rural Appalachia, or the Midwest, farming, living and dying in the dirt.

    I’m serious. Just start homesteading and you can pretty much live with your expenses covered. Pop out a few kids to take over once you get old, and you’re set. This is how the more adventurous and hardy crop of immigrants lived when they came to the USA.

    But the working class whites seem to have their spirits extinguished. Instead of plowing the land they turn to drugs and alcohol. Personally, I would take the hard but honest life of farming. If I ever get SOL, then no problem because I will get a tiny plot somewhere and become a subsistance farmer. Not even kidding. Secretly I’d almost prefer that to city life.

  120. “Can somebody explain what’s wrong with just going back to a hardscrabble life the way their ancestors did?”

    Nothing wrong with it. As a matter of fact the way things are going, it may become the default occupation for many here in America. After they’ve incurred $100k in student loan debt because they misjudged their own skill-set, of course.

    I believe part of some peoples rejection of it is that it isn’t cool, sexy, glamorous or part of the status quo. And, it’s work. A lot of hard work. All of that is anathema to the generations that have been told they’re special, entitled, to live at the expense of others and that everyone is a star to be adored and worshipped by others.

  121. @UrbaneFrancoOntarian

    I agree. I think we need to take back farming from the big farming industry and the illegals. It’s gotten to the point where if you don’t speak Spanish, you’re basically a foreigner working in your own country.

    The trouble is big farming. It’s getting harder and harder for small farmers to compete. The entry cost is high. Is it even easy to get loans to buy land and all the equipment? Trump’s tariffs are killing small farmers, they are committing suicide at a high rate. Meanwhile, our entire farming industry is about to be dominated by just 3 companies, and it is these companies that are lobbying for ever more low skill immigration, instead of hiring all the homeless in our cities:
    https://civileats.com/2016/10/31/why-you-should-care-about-big-ag-companies-getting-bigger/

    [MORE]

    Five of the six biggest companies that produce and sell seeds and chemicals to the world’s farmers are pursuing deals that could leave a market dominated by just three giant, global companies. They say getting bigger means bringing more sophisticated and innovative solutions to farmers faster, but opponents say consolidation has irreversible downsides.

    Dow and DuPont want to merge and then spin off three separate companies, one of them dedicated to agriculture. Monsanto has accepted an offer from Bayer. And China National Chemical Company, known as ChemChina, wants to purchase Syngenta.

    Most Americans aren’t farmers. But these moves would trigger structural changes to the foundations of our food system and impact all Americans, whether or not they buy seeds, fertilizer or herbicides.

    The Jews are the substitute pariahs for the Malay Muslims in public discourse. (In private of course the “yellow plague” Chinese and the “hitam gelap” Indian darkies would do.) For example it would be quite in order for a Malay politician to abuse another as a Yahud. This even though it is unlikely that the mass of Malays have ever come across a Jew. Having said that I see no reason why the Malaysians cannot ban the Israelis for essentially the same reasons that the old South Africa was banned.

    Malaysia is generally as you describe it. The people regardless of their race or religion are friendly and hospitable. It almost seems as though as they are just waiting for an opportunity to show it. But as always in the former Third World the fellows at the immigration checkpoints are an unfriendly lot. The Tamil underclass have it worse than other, since in Malaysia each race is supposed to – an extent – take care of its own. But the Tamils have been let down by the leadership who would not be out of place in Tamil Nadu back in India. Many have wizened up and are sending their children to Chinese schools which give a good education at a low cost. Most of the Tamil Hindus are comparatively recent migrants of about 70 to 80 years vintage, who came in to work in the rubber plantations. When that sector collapsed, they had few other means of supporting themselves. The point is that Hindus do not look after their “brethren” to the same extent as say the Christians, notwithstanding all recently discovered “solidarity” among the Hindus.

    I strongly disagree. It is the Negros and Negro-like peoples that are the real problem. Jews, Chinese, Gujaratis or Lebanese Maronites can only pwn FUBAR nations such as the Philippines. These FUBAR nations are inherently FUBAR because the races there are inherently FUBAR. Getting rid of a group of higher-IQ adventurers will only cause another group of higher-IQ adventurers to get in and repeat the process.

    What’s wrong with it is that it is hardscrabble, and it’s getting even more hardscrabble. Simple things like obtaining seeds, fencing supplies, or a driveline for your tractor’s PTO, to say nothing of obtaining drinking water are mildly to extremely difficult to accomplish these days even in a lot of rural areas. And good luck to you if your equipment breaks down especially at the wrong time. And if you think you can do it all by hand, just try busting some sod for a very small garden some time. Thinking of employing draft animals? Fuggedaboudit. Things that used to be easily obtained must now be special ordered if you can find someone willing to do it. Of course most things can be ordered over the net, but that comes with its own set of difficulties.

    It isn’t so much about AA for Malays. I am all for AA. It is about laws that discriminate non-Muslims. A Chinese or an Indian Muslim can enjoy the same benefits and privileges as a Malay Muslim does. (From education to buying houses or getting burial ground, etc).

    ” And why shouldn’t the Malays want to run their own country? ”

    Simple.

    The malays are also an immigrant race to malaysia. Way before there were malays in the “Golden Chersonese” as described by Ptolemy in his 2nd century AD work, “Geography”; malaysia was inhabited by native dwellers (and many still live in the forest). These people are most closely related to the australian aborigines and polynesians. Biologically, they are not malays.

    Malays immigrated to the peninsula from nearby sumatra, java and kalimantan (borneo). Other immigrant races have as much right to malaysia as the malays.

    Even with Affirmative action, the chinese have literally gobbled up the whole place. If not for affirmative action, the Malays would have vanished completely from anything significant in malaysia

    Totally wrong. It’s all the shit that’s put into their heads that keeps them backwards.

    At independence, Malays used to be open minded and intelligent. Now, fundamentalist Islam and affirmative action are converting them into God-fearing dependent children, while one-way religious conversion and Sharia law removes any chance they might have of leveling up by marrying a Chinese.

    On the Malaysian farm, the Malays are kept in the barn. They’re milked for their votes, and otherwise given just what they need to survive. Meanwhile, the Chinese are allowed to roam freely on the pastures because their productivity is essential to the overall economic situation. The Indians seem like a pack of itinerant goats: roaming freely, nibbling at everything, but not generating that much useful output.

    I feel genuinely sorry for the Malays because their benefits are largely illusory and do little for the poor Malays while mainly serving to make the rich Malays even richer. The true beneficiaries are the politicians and the bumiputera GLCs who make money by doing nothing except passing along the work to Chinese subcons or foreign workers.

    The problem with Malaysia begins and ends with the race based affirmative action.

    Islam is at least as big a part of the problem, because it creates a them-and-us worldview.

    Remember, East Malaysia has tons of non-Muslim Bumiputeras who theoretically benefit from all the affirmative action but, in reality, experience discrimination from the Malays.

    ‘Bumiputera’ is just a politically acceptable term to cover up ‘ketuanan melayu’ (Malay supremacy). It’s about Malays only, and they don’t give a damn about other bumiputeras, even the ones like the orang asli who inhabited the malay peninsular for a thousand years before the malays got there.

    1. Well I am not too aware of internal Malaysian political dynamics. I am just happy to see a government that stands for the majority. The Chinese are not being lynched to death by mobs for eating pork as the Muslims in India or the Christians in Pakistan are. And there is no dress code or prohibition of alcohol as far as I can see. So the Chinese cannot be called persecuted in any way except politically. This time around the government has more non malays then malays and that is something one can not imagine in a place like India/Pakistan/China/Zimbabwe etc

    dress code: A young boy was refused treatment in a public hospital in Johor recently because his mum’s short shorts were too short.

    eating pork: A nurse refused to microwave a meal for a patient because it wasn’t a labelled Halal and she was afraid it might contaminate the microwave with pork.

    To be honest, the main complaints from the Chinese are that the Malays take over all government functions and then run them into the ground. The post offices are almost unusable due to wait times, so people have to use private couriers. Telecoms are expensive and slow. Roads are designed very dangerously, so that accidents are inevitable. Mandatory vehicle testing stations have queues outside that run up to 3 days. Universities fall down the league tables. Malaysian certified doctors can no longer practice overseas. Malaysian driving licenses are no longer convertible to other commonwealth licenses. The passport loses value each day.

    The Chinese are angry that they’re working hard and becoming a first world nation, stuck inside a third world nation.

The central government keeps the immigration policy deliberately loose because private industry needs cheap labour to remain globally competitive, while the policy is loosely enforced because the Immigration Department and Police Force are corrupt at all levels.

This meant that Malaysia/Singapore took a free market path and ended up more like Taiwan, whereas mainland China went Communist and is still suffering because of it.

    Sure. Although most Tamils were brought into Malaysia by the British about a century ago to work the rubber plantations, there has been a strong Hindustani presence in Southeast since several hundred years BC, and definitely in the Middle Ages. There was extensive trade with India in antiquity and hence Bali is Hindu to this day, and before the arrival of Islam and Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism were widespread throughout the region. There was also extensive trade with China in antiquity and in the Middle Ages too. So presumably there were both Indian and Chinese settlers in Southeast Asia long before the European colonists arrived.

    Is it any wonder the Han Chinese are extremely racist in their own country? How much power and influence and political clout do the Muslims and the Christians have in China? Emperor Xi has openly said that Christianity and Islam can ONLY be allowed to exist in China if it aligns with China’s values. The repression and subjugation of faith in China is now known openly and they aren’t allowed to participate in the government as lawmakers (how many Christians and Muslims do they have in their politburo??)

    India recently re-elected a far right government in power despite the fact (or perhaps because of the fact?) that it’s ministers have time and again shown themselves to be Hindu nationalists. The PM is an infamous man who presided over one of the worst massacres of Muslims in recent history; the governor of India’s biggest state openly conducts re-conversion ceremonies for Indian Christians and Muslims, threatens Muslims with a x100 retaliation for every crime committed against a Hindu, people get lynched in broad daylight for eating / being suspected of eating beef.

    Fact is Indians and Chinese vote hard right/conservative in their own homelands stomping over minorities all the while vote leftist in places like Canada and Malaysia. Combine that with the self hatred that the Jewish media is promoting in the cucked west and there is no future of the white race in much of the west as a distinct separate race. Whites won’t be a majority in the US by 2040 while in Canada, whites would be no more than 10% by the end of the century. If you adopt this foolish ideology in Malaysia, how long before your race disappears as a distinct entity?? You are far fewer in number. Think about that

    Lastly, there is a reason nations like Poland and Hungary and perhaps Russia might survive the current onslaught of liberalism and maintain their race while the US, Canada, OZ etc would be either run by the Chinese or the dot Indians in the near future under the tutelage of the Jews. If you want such a future for yourself then please go ahead and drink the liberal kool aid (I see you’ve already drank a bit and elected a liberal government this time around. Just pray they don’t do much damage in their term and be on your toes. Or else you’ll soon see disgusting gay couples making out on the subway protected by ‘free speech’ laws)

    Malays place higher emphasis on family which is actually better then Chinese who are driven by money. The fertility rate reflects this trend, with Malays having more children then Chinese in the Malay archipelago, who are an aging and dying population.

    The Jaffna Tamils hail from the arid North of Sri Lanka and the only advantages they had was their native intelligence and an excellent education system set up by American missionaries. The Jaffna Tamils valued education above all else and the education system the missionaries set up emphasized the English Language and mathematics.The British valued this education and The Jaffna Tamil propensity for hard work and recruited them for the minor government positions such as clerks and station master both in colonial Ceylon and in the Federated States of Malaysia and Singapore.

    It was said that in the 1930s you could travel by train from Singapore to the Thailand border and every station master enroute would be a Jaffna Tamil! It was their descendants who were to play such a significant role in the history of Singapore as an independent nation. The contribution of the Ceylon Tamils were in four main areas – politics and government, law, medicine and sports and I will describe each separately.

    I only knew two Americans like that. One was an engineer and former cable installation company owner who had a hernia and was on morphine so was too sluggish to even talk to. He’d been an army ranger early in life in the Philippines and so, at age 50, he returned there to live on his pension because he was aware of the exchange rate. In Cebu he ran a Web Design company.

    The second guy was Clinton Macbeth, whom I have discussed. He was a contractor in Iraq and former soldier who had lost his house in Connecticut in a bad divorce. He had run out of money and lived in a Neepah Hut. From other foreigners, he managed to scrounge enough to eat everyday and some cigarettes. One American gave him $100 and instead of buying supplies or food he spent the money in one hour at a girly bar on a bar girl. He was 54 years old when I met him in 2012 and had been surviving this way in the Philippines for five years since 2007. Most foreigners who run out of money leave the Philippines but Macbeth said he “wanted some self-respect in front of my kids”. He did some work for some other foreigners off and on but over time he became crazier. He could not teach English because he was dyslexic. He was the American I mentioned that other Americans complained to the US Embassy about because he was increasingly irrational and finally the US Embassy had him deported by Immigration.

    But in general poor whites cannot travel and especially the younger ones. You never meet some “Afro-Saxon” whigger of the Eminem variety or tattooed single mother white slut. I met one or two low-class English Brits whose own support network extends overseas but for a white America if you run out of money in Philippines forget it, no other American will generally find you a job or help you.

    I’ve never really a met a hood rat and never a female black American in SEA or a Cholo of either sex. They are so poor and so deep in crime and so often addicted to drugs they almost never travel as civilians or live in other countries.

Each country has a different Chinese ethnic population who originated in a different part of China-much whites in North America come from different parts of Europe with the US South being mostly British while NYC is more Jewish and Canada is more French.

    Again, my statements are empirical. I lived in Greater Detroit and spent a year in Phoenix, Arizona.

    When I moved to Dubai, the sudden fear of being jumped by Cholos disappeared. The desperate poor white meth-addicts who seemed to be everywhere in the Southwest of the US were gone in Dubai. The bedlam on public transport I had experienced in both Detroit and Phoenix vanished. You could walk anywhere in Dubai without being in a “bad neighborhood” and getting mug. There is prostitution in Dubai but not the attendant black pimps I saw in low-income Phoenix housing. Not once in Dubai did I feel as endangered as I had in Phoenix by Cholo Mestizos. Africans in Dubai acted like everyone else in public, with none of the racial conflict one experiences in the US even if they say nothing (Which I learned to do Michigan) and kept walking. While drug abuse exists in Dubai and a number of Brits are alcoholics, there was none of the alcohol-related violence or drunk driving of the US where even one Phoenix taxi driver was drunk.

    My apartment in Dubai would have been considered low-income in the US but there was never the squalor of low-income housing in Phoenix.

    Nor was is it the rural poverty I saw at Central Michigan University among the townies off-campus. The rural white poor in the US have lower standards of living than anyone I met in Dubai.

    Of course these people are most patriotic. I cannot figure out why.

    I doubt the Chinese-Malaysians are as interested in who the Minister of Cultural Affairs or even Minister of Education as they are in the Minister of Finance.

    Chinese-Filipino subdivisions in Philippines are very nice too. I lived in one. Chinese make reasonably good neighbors, barring their non-stop Majong games.

    From your attitude, I can sort of understand why Malaysians might riot against Chinese. After all, you people are alien and because they are not as good at business as you they are at the mercy of whatever wage you decided to pay them. Without some sort of government regulation the Malays would be reduced to penniless squatters like the Filipinos, and Chinese would cook up crystal meth and flood their shanties with it in the bargain.

    So it is lucky that the Malays are protected from the sheer rapaciousness of the Chinese through government interference and lofty English laws.

    I’m not saying Malaysians are overall as good at business or even as energetic as Chinese. They are not. But this is sort of like taking advantage of a drunk girl at a party. It is not quite rape and she may consent to the drunken sex, but it is still exploitative.

    Again, like most Chinese-Filipinos I got close to, you would argue that without Chinese they would not have an economy, businesses, infrastructure or much of anything. Which is probably true.

    Law & Order in Dubai…

    My Indian neighbor beat up his wife and the police came. He was arrested and deported instantly. He did about a month in a Dubai jail and then was instantly deported. Sponsorship revoked. Banned from re-entry. The end.

    An English health club manager of my gym in Dubai was pushed by an Indian hotel manager at the Intercontinental Hotel for walking over a carpet. He was a big bodybuilder and punched the Indian guy one time. The man was completely knocked out in front all the hotel guests on the floor. The English gym manager was fired. He spent five days in jail. Then it was the plane home.

    One German fool in Oman belonged to a band. He was selling hashish for some reason. He did six years in an Oman prison, which could not have been a whole lot of fun. He was probably informed on by local dealers, who really don’t like foreign competition. A single joint will get a foreigner deported.

    Foreigners who commit any sort of crime in the Middle East are swiftly deported unless, like the English couple having sex at the beach, their crime offends local sensibilities. Then you’ll do months, years in prison.

    Groids and Mestizos only come to Dubai if they are in the military and these people are held in check by the US government for the most part. However, some black American sailors managed to start a vicious brawl in a Kentucky Fried Chicken within in 30 minutes of leaving the ship. My one Australian friend had a run-in with some American Marines in a Dubai restaurant but was a longtime Thai kickboxer and former bouncer who was able to handle himself.

    Whatever crime you commit in Dubai, you’ll end up in a jailed and deported.

    1) I doubt the Chinese-Malaysians are as interested in who the Minister of Cultural Affairs or even Minister of Education as they are in the Minister of Finance.

    The malaysian government is a coalition of political parties representing different interests. Since independence in 1957, this has always been true. As in any coalition government, the horse trading for who is going to helm which ministry would be finalized even before the election manifesto (pledges) is printed. Therefore, government ministers are not by appointment even though “officially”, they are picked by the PM designate. Failure to agree on this means there will be no government.

    No one objects to helping the poor and disenfranchised. Malays are not the only ones who are poor. The whole point in this argument is the abuse of affirmative action privilege by those who are / were in power to enrich themselves and their cronies. Also, state funds are frequently being channeled into their own political parties for the express purpose of greasing their election machinery and vote buying. After half a century of affirmative action, they are still poor and asking for more and more. Something must be wrong here!

    There are already 1.5 BILLION persons of Chinese origin in the world. It doesn’t matter if they are physically located in China, or outside China, they behave the same. The Chinese race is not a good race. Sure they are intelligent and industrious, but they are also money hungry, dishonest, easily corruptible, loud, rude, gluttonous, and filthy. Almost all areas occupied by Chinese, from HK to Malaysia to Queens, NYC, are filthy areas. It boggles the mind that these people could enjoy the food while sitting in the dirtiest restaurants to eat.

    The Chinese completely lack any kind of civic mindedness. In the US, if you see a million dollar home in the suburb with a completely unkempt, shitty yard, dirty roof etc. 9 times out of 10 it is occupied by a Chinese family. These people do not seem to care at all about their environment. All they care about is making money, eating and sending their kids to Harvard. Even those with a PhD live and act like trailer trash.

    Malaysia would be better off without the Chinese. Mahathir was right about these people. They are greedy and dishonest like the Jews. The only place where anyone is happy to see a Chinese face is inside China. The US is committing suicide by letting these people come in by the millions to turn us into a giant dog-eat-dog, corrupt, filthy Chinatown.

    Not quite the same. White South Africans (the Dutch Boers) arrived in Cape Town when the country was completely unoccupied. They cleared the land and turned it into beautiful farmlands, city and living space just like what the whites did in America. Then the British came and tried to take over from them, war ensued, the Boers moved inland and made the inland areas habitable too. Blacks arrived in SA after whites built SA, and soon after claimed it’s their land and their continent and wanted the whites out. Whites built everything, blacks just take, take, take.

    Malaya was not vacant land when the Chinese arrived. It was already occupied by the Malays. Not to say that the Malays were the first there either, they probably killed off some other tribes when they arrived, like the Native Americans who killed off other tribes when they arrived, then bitched and moaned about whites taking over. The point is the Chinese didn’t build Malacca, the Portugese did.

    Early Chinese arrivals helped build the railroad in America in the 1800s but the majority of Chinese in the US today arrived after 1965, and in large numbers from mainland China after 2000. The last group esp. came to feast on what the white men built, just like all other third world parasites.

    We earn a lot of income on average almost all over the world including in America compared to natives and commit very few crimes compared to natives. Hence we aren’t parasites. We are too rich to be Third World but not developed enough to be First World yet so we are Second World.

    However I do agree that diversity harms social unity and that we do have a serious corruption/low-trust problem. Hence we should (and will because we can’t live with violence either due to a race war or due to a high concentration of groids & mestizos & other pests being what they are at all) separate and remain friendly.

    Moreover I know very well that the universe does not operate according to morality. Hence we the NE Asian people really need to start conquering FUBAR shitholes and remove all their subhuman natives.

Interracial marriage seems to go hand in hand with a shrinking middle-class as so many white men, aware that they will never have a decent job and live at home aged 30, simply watch naked Jewish men “Schtupping the Shiksas” all day on their computer in their basement in porn videos.

    But the white elite will continue to marry along class lines. Sometimes educated whites will marry educated Asians. Sure. But very few wealthy Asians or White Americans will allow their daughters to marry poor blacks or Mexicans. And their daughters or sons will adhere to this for fear of losing the family fortune they’ll inherit.

    As for respecting the Anglo world, Chinese seemed to like Hong Kong and Singapore. Lee Kwan Yew got his law degree in England. So obviously some aspects of European culture appeal to Chinese.

    I’m thinking the reason you don’t like the Chinese commie government is because you are either a corrupt government official/businessman or the son of one, emigrated with all your ill gotten gains before you get thrown in jail, like 90% of China people who emigrated. Only the rich can afford to emigrate in China, and the country is so corrupt, the only way you could get rich is by being corrupt, either by taking massive graft, or giving it. Or maybe you are one of the remaining 10% who are illegals or fake asylees claiming to be persecuted because you are Christian, or political dissident…all fake, of course.

    America is becoming increasingly unpleasant to live in because of corrupt liars like you and your countrymen. Please go back to Asia.

    You don’t need to be corrupt to know that commies don’t protect property rights of anyone. Two of my great-grandparents owned businesses and commie fuckers took the businesses and houses away after 1949.

    Anyway we will mostly leave at some point. Likely by 2050. Those who don’t will regret it as the West becomes Brazil.

    Of course we will get out at some point. A Brazilianized groid and mestizo society is too unsafe for my peace-loving and working people. That’s it.

    We just need the fucking commies especially Xi out first.

    Philippines and Thailand benefited, however. And Singapore. Communism is not a bad system for the poor and uneducated laborer, but not the ambitious or energetic.

    So all the entrepreneurial and energetic Chinese moved to Hong Kong, Taiwan or Philippines.

    Well, I think communism is a system only appropriate for groids. For poor people from good races such as white and NE Asian races on the other hand the solution is settler colonization of FUBAR shitholes, Antarctica and space. The poor peasants from China for example should go to Sub-Saharan Africa just like many older poor Chinese peasants who moved to shitholes in Southeast Asia. They will become rich in Africa and will make Africa a lot less fucked up.

    Well, my great-grandparents did not get out before it was too late. 🙁

    When will we get our pre-1949 rice shops and furniture shop back?

    Groid, when commies & commie-relatare gone I will also be gone soon. We will build a new NE Asia (and colonies in FUBAR shitholes) that will have the greatest features of both the current NE Asia and pre-groid, pre-mestizo Germanic world. That’s it. Just like Singapore it will be welcoming and nice…and anti-groid. We will be having fun while you groids will be left out.

    By 2050? Lol. That proves what was already suspected: you are nothing but a whiny fraud. What’s stopping you from moving to Singapore right now?

    Btw, since you hate southeast asians so much what makes you think you will like living in Singapore?

    They might get a taste of Natives or First Nations or whatever is PC to call those wild Mongolians up there. Northern Native Canadians scared me. They are a primitive, prehistoric, ruthless, savage race………to be white up in Northern Canada is not a good thing

    What? You didn’t join Derbyshire’s “Arctic Alliance” yet? Bite your tongue and get with the program, expat.

    What’s likely to happen sometime in this century: Siberia, Alaska, Northern Canada and Vancouver will merge into Greater China while Southern Canada will merge with the U.S.

    Wrong again, you dumb deluded dog torturer. Put down that opium pipe shoved into your mouth by the mercantile brits, open your frickin eyes and look around. What do you see? Rice-paddy asians, such as yourself, are the only race that has overwhelmingly embraced communism. Explain that away.

    China has no use for those places even if indigenous North Americans and Inuit have some distant link to Asia.

    Vancouver is one more border city and Chinese (Like other urban groups such as Hindus or Italians) are only interested in border cities which serve as trading partners/branch plant economies/NAFTA economies for the US.

    Your hatred of Xi just shows who you are: A corrupt China man who is on the run from the Chinese government, wanted for corruption in China so you can’t go back.

    That’s just the problem with you mercantile yellows. You are like the greedy bastard Jews and English, who can’t see the world past dollar signs. Money is the only thing you care about.

    Africans are primitive people not evolved enough to be part of the modern world. Why the heck are you China people so hellbent on “developing” Africa? Certainly not for the benefit of the Africans. The Chinese are the most selfish people, altruism is not part of your character. You want to take all of Africa’s natural resources and turn Africa into your farmland because China is running out of farmland. The problem is: Africa is not yours to take.

    You are making the same mistakes as the white colonials two hundred years ago, at least we’ve learned from our mistakes and are mostly out of Africa now, except for that idiot “philanthropist” Bill Gates, who is still busy growing more Africans with his vitamins and vaccines, so these jungle people can invade Europe.

    Leave Africa to the Africans! These prehistoric primitive tribes cannot function in a modern world. They can only consume and reproduce, but have zero capacity to produce anything for the modern world. China will only make another huge mess out of Africa, like the white colonials two centuries ago. Except since the Chinese are even more soulless and mercenary, you will leave behind a much bigger mess, like turning Africa into a toxic, polluted hellhole twice the size of China. One China is bad enough for the world, we don’t need two, or three. Chinese like you need to stay in the shithole that you’ve created for yourselves called China, and stop fucking up the rest of the world with your greedy, soulless, mercantile ways.

    How did you like Cebu/Negros compared to Manila (the only place in Phils that I’ve been)?

    • Replies: @jeff stryker

    Its less expensive. A little safer. The poverty is not quite as horrendous.

    Negros is fairly wealthy because of sugarcane. People are not as atrociously poor there.

    On the other hand, Manila Filipinos are generally much more witty and cosmopolitan.

    @jeff stryker @EastKekistani @Anonymous

    I’m Malay so let me settle the dispute once and for all

    1)Economically Chinese have the highest median income ,followed by Indian and Malay.By this logic,the IQ are 108,100 and 92 respectively.Chinese dominate about 80%-90% of industry while Indian taking the remaining.How about the Malays you may ask well we got none.Instead our ownership is usually through government.Worth mentioning that among the 3,even if Indian have higher median income than Malay, they seem to have highest inequality.

    2)In every industry,Chinese seem to come out on top with the exception of some industries such as airline,telecom,restaurant,textile where Indian seem to do better than Chinese.Why you may ask,I don’t know as well.However in place like ownership of private universities ,Indian do pretty well with owning 30%-40% private universities while Chinese the rest. Chinese strongest industry dominance is finance and real estate.

    3)Disparity in crime in Malaysia don’t exist like you see in US or UK where one group is dominant .However Tamils are indeed stereotyped as criminals at the same time as lawyers even despite having a median income higher than Malays.I know this might see weird as no other group is simultaneously stereotyped as both high income and criminals but this is what you get when caste is practised for thousands of years.Average Sikhs,Mamaks are as wealthy if not wealthier than average Chinese. Every Mamak that I meet in school or college is wealthy and every sikhs have either lawyer or doctor parents.Primarily because Mamaks and Sikhs in Malaysia are merchant caste. I don’t know what average Mamak IQ are but they have to be near Chinese level as well because the one that I know from school are straight A students.
