[edit: The original graphic has been replaced with the one below on account of my error in initially using “anti-gay” instead of “homophobia”. Thanks to German_Reader for the correction.]

The number of articles in The New York Times over the last decade containing at least one instance of selected phrases with an anti- prefix:

A couple of technical notes: In many cases, eloquent variation on the part of the writers means that adding synonyms together to get a total figure would have resulted in inflated figures due to a lot of double-counting. To avoid this, I used the variant that returned the highest number of articles for each term (ie “anti-Semitic” returned more articles than “anti-Jewish”, “misogyny” more than “anti-woman” or “anti-female”, “anti-male” more than “misandry”, etc). Searches are not case sensitive, either–that’s a little OCD poking through on my part.

  1. It sounds more intellectual to use terms like “misogyny,” and the English language’s hyphenation rules don’t make sense. If you don’t have to care about pleasing editors, hyphens give you the renegade freedom to create your own, more descriptive words.

    The Germans just smush a bunch of words together, making an elongated word that fuses the meaning of several words in the service of creating a more specific or a more nuanced word. That system is more elegant, but in English, the hyphen is the only option to avoid accusations that you used a word that isn’t really a word. You did anyway, but that is because the word was not available.

    Black People often say someone is “hating on” another person.

    It would be nice to amalgamate many types of words, not just those conventionally associated with the hyphen arts.

    Anon sources report that humans hate-on the white man less than any group other than straight wo-men.

    Hyphens help you keep the original capitalization of proper nouns, adjectives, etc.

  2. “anti-gay …745”

    “homophobic” gets 1128 results, “homophobia” 943.

    • Replies: @Audacious Epigone
    I ran "homophobe" for some reason. My mistake. Will fix the graphic.
  3. anon[144] • Disclaimer says:

    This graph should be widely shared as it perfectly displays the political narrative building of our media. Despite Christianity becoming the most persecuted religion in the world, and despite a plethora of opportunities to mention that fact in conjunction with significant global events like the Syrian War, it barely appears. “Misogyny” appears 10x more. “Anti-Semitic” appears 20x more despite Christians far outnumbering Jews.

    P.S. Try “anti-immigrant” and see what you get. Maybe “nativist”, too. What about anti-Palestinian? Anti-war? It would be funny if there were more mentions of “antimatter” than “anti-Christian”.

  4. I see “anti-Christian”, which must encompass “anti-gentile”.
    Of course anyone could be anti-Christian. But is there a specific term for Jews hating Christians? I know there is a specific Jewish anti-Christian slur – “goy”.

  5. So, as a straight male Asian Christian, I have the least “NYT anti-ness” going for me.

    That's not quite what I wrote. Unless you mean NYT is everybody. It just means, according to the NYT, a straight, male, Christian, Asian person has the fewest Victim points (or the lowest Anti-ness). I guess that makes me a person of the highest Privileged category. I am assuming this is somewhat akin, or corresponds, to the Class Enemy of the Proletariat category the Bolsheviks had. Perhaps those in charge will start by downgrading my SAT and GRE scores from decades ago from 99 percentile to 1 per the latest proposed adversity score. I wonder whether my children will also inherit this status as was the case with the Bolshevik/Maoist-run countries.

    In contrast, a homosexual, female, Jewish, black person is the victimest, and therefore the noblest, person per the NYT. Jussie Smolett needs to come out as a woman and he, I mean, she, would be all set.

    >nobody cares about straight Asian Christian guys.

    Well yeah until 1991 you where the model immigrant, Asians leaned Republican because they where primary communist-refugees or Chinese evangelicals

    Now we got Asian immigrants with average median age of 18. Some, Laotian immigrants in particular, are so poor that they're marrying blacks and Latinos, and others i.e Indians or Pakistanis are setting up monolithic ghettos. Which will have no disastrous consequences when Pakistan can't into crops

    Worse is i believe Asian-White kids still highly identify as Democrat or liberals. Though don't know how that varies from say San Fran where everyone is liberal, or Indiana with its decent size Japanese Conservative communities

    Though I've dated a disproportionate amount of Asians myself (ironically mostly Japanese, Vietnamese, and Filipino who marry more outside the group than in it)......cause they're way more into feminine and intelligent men than my usual demographic choices/preference.
    , @Audacious Epigone
    The alleged political incorrectness of it really is incidental. Why not make it as easy for viewers to understand as possible? I see these corporate media graphics with a green line for blacks, a blue line for whites, a brown line for Asians, a purple line for Hispanics, etc, and I have to keep looking back and forth at the lines and the legend.

    Bright red makes sense to represent the GOP, socialism, China, Japan, Canada and (continuing the lulzy theme, though I'd maybe use a darker red) American Indians, but why Christianity? Because it was the Crusader color?

    Anyway that's IMO too obscure an association; the color red doesn't make me think of Christianity, and would make more sense for, if any religion, Buddhism or atheism.

    If I were you I'd use white for Christianity, since it's the "white" religion, and the "bathed in white light" pop-cultural depiction of heaven, angels etc.

    Judging from the sexual consent rules that seem to govern on university campuses these days, I'd say things are actually going the other way on that - meaning we seem to be having Victorian sexual morality v. 2.0, whereby young female adults are deemed incapable of giving out consent or having agency (though wrapped in the rhetoric of girrrrl power) and can be seduced helplessly by malevolent males who are always at fault. In other words, all sex, especially with young adult females, is sexual assault.

    I don't know about "intersectional pyramid," but the Victim (or societal Anti-ness) score by category according to the NYT is pretty clear:

    From the highest to lowest:

    Religion: Jewish, Muslim, Christian

    Race/ethnicity: black, white, Hispanic, Asian.

    Sexuality: homosexual, heterosexual.

    Sex: female, male.

  17. As well as the emphasis on anti-semitism I noticed another anomaly in the NY Times. If you study the recipes in the cooking section of the NY Times you find that most of the recipes call for kosher salt, although in recent years this has decreased slightly. I even have the feeling that when people submit a recipe to the NY Times they make sure that the salt called for in the recipe is kosher salt. One may naturally assume that this reference might improve the probability of getting published. I even found a recipe from an Irish cookbook in the NY Times where the salt had ben changed to kosher salt when I was published. Search kosher salt instead of anti-.

    • Replies: @Buck
    Kosher salt is used in modern recipes because it differentiates it from table salt (which often includes iodine and anticaking agents) and sea salt (whose grain structure is all over the map). In contrast, Kosher salt is unadulterated and easily consistently measured by weight and volume.

    It's not a Jewish conspiracy unlike Jerusalem artichokes.

    Higher than you think. Yes, you do have some problematic beliefs that need to be interrogated (to use the parlance). But you also have some Victimhood advantages, namely:

    1. You are (presumably) dark skinned.

    2. You descend from victims of European colonization.

    3. Your immigrant forbears hail from a region that is still mired in utter poverty and devoid of many modern socio-economic developments.

    4. You are a (nominal) Muslim, people known to be hostile to Christians generally and currently produce the most amount of religious violence and terrorism.

    5. Harvard's admissions office says that you are much more Diverse and Victim-y than non-Jewish whites and East Asians.

    So, all in all, not bad.

    I am vocally to the right in terms of politics.

    I am openly anti-trans and anti-gay.

    Gay marriage and the LGBT movement are designed to undermine the West by undermining the family. It is also a form of political control.

    I oppose race-mixing(marriage, kids….)

    I have openly stated by animosity towards blacks.

    I hold hardline views regarding blacks and hispanics.

    These views are stupid and misguided and feed into the hands of the group behind fomenting them.

    Anti-communist.

    The devil’s plan is to rule the whole world through control of global finance, with Zionism as his nationalism and communism as his bulldozer to eliminate all other nationalisms (this view I take from an Irish priest, late Fr. Andrew O’Brien in his book Make Yourself An Ark).

    Hardline maybe a little bit of an aggrandizement. What I mean is that I abhor the POC groupping which lumps me with the blacks and hispanics as we have diametrically different economic impacts, criminality rates as well as the fact that our social dynamics and attitudes, as well as our views are quite seperate, and unique from each other. I hate that grouping and term in general. Many people tend to tell me about the victim pyramid, and how blacks and hispanics have been done wrong, and they should be given special treatment as a result. I oppose this. I also openly loathe the actions that blacks do, I speak against them, and many things really.

    'Anti-Muslim' should probably be green if we're doing the un-PC bar coloring thing (which I heartily approve of, of course). ;)

    To some extent it's hardly surprising a paper aimed at college-educated readers in NYC would be obsessed with anti-Semitism. The NYT is, of course, much more influential, but it would be interesting to compare the Washington Post, as well as, say, how much the Boston Globe talks about Ireland.

    That said...yes, as Twinkie says, nobody cares about straight Asian Christian guys. I'm willing to bet most of the 'anti-white' hits are things like 'seen as anti-white' or 'fears of anti-white', but that's going to require more of a deep dive than you're able to do with that many hits. Same with 'anti-male'. Anyone have any ideas?

    >nobody cares about straight Asian Christian guys.

    Well yeah until 1991 you where the model immigrant, Asians leaned Republican because they where primary communist-refugees or Chinese evangelicals

    Now we got Asian immigrants with average median age of 18. Some, Laotian immigrants in particular, are so poor that they’re marrying blacks and Latinos, and others i.e Indians or Pakistanis are setting up monolithic ghettos. Which will have no disastrous consequences when Pakistan can’t into crops

    Worse is i believe Asian-White kids still highly identify as Democrat or liberals. Though don’t know how that varies from say San Fran where everyone is liberal, or Indiana with its decent size Japanese Conservative communities

    Though I’ve dated a disproportionate amount of Asians myself (ironically mostly Japanese, Vietnamese, and Filipino who marry more outside the group than in it)……cause they’re way more into feminine and intelligent men than my usual demographic choices/preference.

    Isn't the term just referred to as transphobia? I have not seen the term "anti-tranny" being used innumerably, and I presume it isn't very socially acceptable, with "tranny" being possibly considered a perjorative, being associated with the "alt right" and the various other "undesirable" groups it is grouped with as part of the cultural marxist agenda.

    but I think it should be clear who’s in charge,
     
    You act as if there was ever any sort of real doubt. Was there ever any? Not really. ((They)) are a protected class within a protected class. They supercede any of their pets(or rather useful idiots, to quote their favourite "academic") when it comes to victimhood. After all, they have been shoahed 6 million times! They spurt out litany after litany of victimizing propaganda, which is used to swindle people of all kinds to join their efforts in destroying western civlization, by means of supporting whatever new degeneracy they have come up with. They use this to dig deep into the tribal mindset present wihtin every human being and they do this to have others fight their battles for them. ((They)) also do this to exacerbate the destruction of the white race, as so many of you have correctly and wisely pointed out

    If they are this powerful, I need to marry one–after all, half of the non-Orthodox now marry white gentiles or Asians–that way my kids will have superpowers, too!

    Shame for my first family, but there is obviously no chance for anyone who is not them. After all, they control the world, right? If you can’t beat, join!

    Kent Nationalist comments that: “7867 hits for ‘racist’ (synonymous with ‘anti-black’ in most uses I would expect.)” Racist would be the term that is a close approximation to anti-Semite, but, as I stated, anti-Semite is a one-off, not comparable to these other spurious antis.

    Who said anything about that? Anti-semite is a loaded term which I do not believe in. Arabs are semites. How very typical of the juden to impede the laws of our language to mold their own term, best suited to their own agenda. And I certainly do not like the way in which it is used, and the contemporary definitions of the word, as well as what it is associated with. It is used to denote those who have strayed from the mainstream public opinion that ((they)) have crafted for you. The moment you connect the dots and make the realizations, out come the blue-tick marks calling you anti-semitic. It's a loaded term

    The purpose of the “throwing food attack” is meant as a sexual humiliation, to emasculate the target. Notice that it is rarely done to female politicians, this is not an accident.

    throwing food attack
     
    This brings back memories.

    When I first came to the U.S. and went to junior high school, I ate at a school cafeteria for the first time in my life (in East Asia, my mother packed a thermos full of food and I ate in the classrooms with my peers).

    Some kid decided to make faces at me and, when I looked confused and didn’t respond, began to throw fries at me. I interpreted this as a very insulting gesture (treating me like an animal to whom to throw feed), so I jumped on the cafeteria table and soccer-kicked him full-force. The kid fell backward and was completely out for minutes. Meanwhile the whole cafeteria erupted in screams, jeers, and laughter.

    I was escorted away by teachers. I expected a beating from them, as would have happened in East Asia back in those days. Instead, I was told to show up for “detention” after school. I thought this would be where I would get the beating. Instead I was given a quiet room to read and study in peace as “punishment” to my utter amazement and bafflement.

    A couple of days later, this kid cornered me with another, really large kid after school. I sensed that they were about to attack me, so I punched the new kid on his left eye and while he was clutching it in pain and yelping, I front kicked him on the nose and then kneed him in the gut. The first kid ran off immediately. Apparently this spread like wildfire at school later, because nobody ever bothered me again and kids I later found out to be deemed “cool” asked to “hang out” with me (I was just confused by it all and a bit concerned and scared).

    Those were different times. The outcome of such actions would be very different today.

    Years later someone told me that junior high school was like prison - you just have to beat someone up the first day and establish your “cred” and I chuckled a bit inside. He wasn’t wrong - at least in my experience back in those days.

    The attacker in most cases is male.

    It is worthwhile to challenge them to "fight me like a man", to recapture the symbolic masculinity.

    The left correctly recognizes that most right-wing leaders have a following built upon a masculine aura, which if lost usually sees the following disappear. See: Spencer, Richard.

    Imagine if it was revealed that Trump is impotent and is literally a cuckold. That would destroy his reputation overnight, and cause all of his followers to desert him.

    The "symbolic castration" evinced by being covered in food is of a lesser nature than the "symbolic rape" that would be inferred if carried out on a female politician.

    Is the Hot Economy Pulling New Workers into the Labor Force?

    In this Letter, I show that, contrary to a popular and appealing hypothesis, the tight labor market is not bringing new workers into the labor force. Using micro data to construct the flows of workers into and out of the labor force, I show that the recent increase in the prime-age labor force participation rate is not driven by an inflow of new workers. Instead, the increase is a mechanical byproduct of the tight labor market: because unemployed workers are finding jobs faster, they are less likely to leave the labor force.

    The whining about this is ridiculous. Playing the victim in this case will not win any points.

    When you get hit either:

    a) take the Fraser Anning approach.
    b) laugh it off and ignore it
    c) turn it into something else. For instance Farage could yell out "For Britain" or something like that.

    That said, the best thing is probably to ignore it since Brexit Party is currently comfortably in 1st place. The voters will show their displeasure at the polls, regardless of some milkshake throwing turds.

    The attacker in most cases is male.

    It is worthwhile to challenge them to “fight me like a man”, to recapture the symbolic masculinity.

    The left correctly recognizes that most right-wing leaders have a following built upon a masculine aura, which if lost usually sees the following disappear. See: Spencer, Richard.

    Imagine if it was revealed that Trump is impotent and is literally a cuckold. That would destroy his reputation overnight, and cause all of his followers to desert him.

    The “symbolic castration” evinced by being covered in food is of a lesser nature than the “symbolic rape” that would be inferred if carried out on a female politician.

    Male disposability strikes again.

    The truth is that white liberals don't care that you're being "racist" or "sexist" or "homophobic". They see that you're brown and they think that you're bringing vibrant diversity to their lives; that you're from another culture where that is normal; that you aren't enlightened like them but you're brown and not a racist redneck. You will be educated over time.

    That's how they think. You're just a brown pawn to the liberals and leftists. Skin colour comes first.

    Bright red makes sense to represent the GOP, socialism, China, Japan, Canada and (continuing the lulzy theme, though I'd maybe use a darker red) American Indians, but why Christianity? Because it was the Crusader color?

    Anyway that's IMO too obscure an association; the color red doesn't make me think of Christianity, and would make more sense for, if any religion, Buddhism or atheism.

    If I were you I'd use white for Christianity, since it's the "white" religion, and the "bathed in white light" pop-cultural depiction of heaven, angels etc.

    when I do graphs with Catholics and Protestants, I use green and orange so I’ve stuck with the brown color for Muslim.
     
    Maybe give each demographic a "home" and a "visiting" color? Green and orange are good colors for Catholics and Protestants, but in other contexts good for Muslims and Hindus.

    If you like that idea I did the religions for you.

    Religion: "Home" Color; "Visiting" Color

    Christian: White; Tyrian Purple
    Catholic: Green; Cardinal
    Protestant: Orange; Gray
    Orthodox: Gold; Black


    Muslim: Green; Brown
    Sunni: Dark Green; Sandy Brown

    Non-Orthodox: Sky Blue; Pink


    Atheist/No Religion: Pink; Gray

    Hindu: Orange; Purple

    Buddhist: Yellow; Red

    Hardline maybe a little bit of an aggrandizement. What I mean is that I abhor the POC groupping which lumps me with the blacks and hispanics as we have diametrically different economic impacts, criminality rates as well as the fact that our social dynamics and attitudes, as well as our views are quite seperate, and unique from each other. I hate that grouping and term in general. Many people tend to tell me about the victim pyramid, and how blacks and hispanics have been done wrong, and they should be given special treatment as a result. I oppose this. I also openly loathe the actions that blacks do, I speak against them, and many things really.

    Adjust for population size and race goes black, Asian, Hispanic, white. Even though the Asians in the US are more likely to be foreign-born than Hispanics are, "anti-immigrant" probably takes the place of "anti-Hispanic" in the NYT more often than it does "anti-Asian". If that's the case, then the order appears to fit with what most people would assume-->black, Hispanic, Asian, white.

    Judging from the sexual consent rules that seem to govern on university campuses these days, I’d say things are actually going the other way on that – meaning we seem to be having Victorian sexual morality v. 2.0, whereby young female adults are deemed incapable of giving out consent or having agency (though wrapped in the rhetoric of girrrrl power) and can be seduced helplessly by malevolent males who are always at fault. In other words, all sex, especially with young adult females, is sexual assault.

    One of the most irritating tendencies of low brow white nationalists is that they always invoke other white people in a desperate effort to enlist some semblance of authority. Hence it’s always “we” when they speak or write. Because they are the best of whites and speak for the latter.

    This maybe a bit of an edgy and kind of low effort comment, but it does invoke a bit of personal curiosity, so I would like to post this to garner some opinion.

    I am a South Asian. Not white obviously, but I am not Hispanic or Black. Quite light skin though.

    I am straight.

    I am CIS.

    I am male.

    I am vocally to the right in terms of politics.

    I am openly anti-trans and anti-gay.

    I oppose race-mixing(marriage, kids....)

    I have openly stated by animosity towards blacks.

    I hold hardline views regarding blacks and hispanics.

    Anti-communist.



    Thougts?

    Where would I stand on the victimhood pyramid(or whatever the shape is)?

    Higher than you think. Yes, you do have some problematic beliefs that need to be interrogated (to use the parlance). But you also have some Victimhood advantages, namely:

    1. You are (presumably) dark skinned.

    2. You descend from victims of European colonization.

    3. Your immigrant forbears hail from a region that is still mired in utter poverty and devoid of many modern socio-economic developments.

    4. You are a (nominal) Muslim, people known to be hostile to Christians generally and currently produce the most amount of religious violence and terrorism.

    5. Harvard’s admissions office says that you are much more Diverse and Victim-y than non-Jewish whites and East Asians.

    Before you "laugh," perhaps you should read the internal Harvard admissions documents that were found during discovery, which favors South Asians as more disadvantaged than East Asians (Chinese, Koreans, etc.). Sorry, the powers that be find you more Diverse and Oppressed.

    All of which is rather (mildly) amusing given that the average South Asian SES is far higher than that of East Asians in the U.S. due to the high immigration selectivity of the former (3/4 of South Asians have college degrees in the U.S. vs. 1/2 of Chinese and Koreans do, for example).

    And South Asians weren't used to dynamite mountains and lay tracks for the railroads or pan for gold either, so their participation in the Harvard former-coolies/laundry worker, I mean "Asian," lawsuit reveals some chutzpah to borrow a term from another ethnic group, i.e. "You guys just showed up and you already want both affirmative action and anti-affirmative action points?"

    It’s more about attention or even public acclaim and who is most worthy of it. And the NYT is very old fashioned about that, e.g. black vs. white, Jew vs. gentile, female vs. male, etc. There might be occasional pieces about Hispanics and Asians, but fundamentally the NYT fixates about black victims and white oppressors with others being bit players and ambient noise. And the same about homosexuals and normal people. And the numbers bear that out and indicate just that.

    Judging from the sexual consent rules that seem to govern on university campuses these days, I'd say things are actually going the other way on that - meaning we seem to be having Victorian sexual morality v. 2.0, whereby young female adults are deemed incapable of giving out consent or having agency (though wrapped in the rhetoric of girrrrl power) and can be seduced helplessly by malevolent males who are always at fault. In other words, all sex, especially with young adult females, is sexual assault.

    You’re speaking of the also very real effort to criminalize sex for straight men. The normalization of pedophilia is a separate effort but being propagated as we speak.

  68. @res
    Thanks. You even made that clear in your original comment.

    I have trouble reconciling that with my perception of the NYT output. It made more sense when I went and looked at actual "anti-white" search results. Most of those aren't complaining about "anti-white" (in contrast to the other antis I looked at) sentiment. They are complaining about those evil people who believe it exists.

    Seems like a flaw in AE's methodology (I still like the idea, but it is good to be aware of limitations). Sentiment analysis can be hard in the presence of negatives, sarcasm, etc.

    OK. Focusing on attention vs. victim status helps clarify things.

    But I think if attention is the metric there should probably be some level of per capita adjustment factored in. The amount of attention paid by the NYT to 2% of the US population vs. the amount of attention paid to 60-70% is a good (perhaps the definitive?) example.

    I still think my point of whether the "anti-X" idea is being affirmed or criticized is important though. Positive attention is fundamentally different from negative attention.

    As well as the emphasis on anti-semitism I noticed another anomaly in the NY Times. If you study the recipes in the cooking section of the NY Times you find that most of the recipes call for kosher salt, although in recent years this has decreased slightly. I even have the feeling that when people submit a recipe to the NY Times they make sure that the salt called for in the recipe is kosher salt. One may naturally assume that this reference might improve the probability of getting published. I even found a recipe from an Irish cookbook in the NY Times where the salt had ben changed to kosher salt when I was published. Search kosher salt instead of anti-.

    Kosher salt is used in modern recipes because it differentiates it from table salt (which often includes iodine and anticaking agents) and sea salt (whose grain structure is all over the map). In contrast, Kosher salt is unadulterated and easily consistently measured by weight and volume.

    I wish I was a straight Asian Christian male. I would be higher up the intersectional pyramid from where I am now.
     
    I don't know about "intersectional pyramid," but the Victim (or societal Anti-ness) score by category according to the NYT is pretty clear:

    From the highest to lowest:

    Religion: Jewish, Muslim, Christian

    Race/ethnicity: black, white, Hispanic, Asian.

    Sexuality: homosexual, heterosexual.

    Sex: female, male.

    Adjust for population size and race goes black, Asian, Hispanic, white. Even though the Asians in the US are more likely to be foreign-born than Hispanics are, “anti-immigrant” probably takes the place of “anti-Hispanic” in the NYT more often than it does “anti-Asian”. If that’s the case, then the order appears to fit with what most people would assume–>black, Hispanic, Asian, white.

    Yes. While the NYT is a newspaper of national import (or it used to be in any case), its focus is highly affected by being in NYC, which of course has a very different demographic makeup than the rest of the country.

    In order to get the per capita (by race) figures for the whole country, simply counting the attention in NYT is not enough. You'd have to include all the major regional newspapers. And I can tell you that the Des Moines Register isn't going to have a lot of stories about Asians (unless it's about the culture clash with the Chinese foreign students in Iowa City). Probably less than 5%. However, you will still find stories about "oppression" against blacks and homosexuals and occasionally about Hispanic laborers in the meat packing plants and farms.

    Often, in the mainstream media, no attention is an indication of the lower level of importance in the society (as perceived by the purveyors of the said media) or even that of lack of (attributed) agency.

    That's why when you look at a TV show about a hospital (Asian-heavy in real life) in Seattle, WA (again, Asian-heavy in real life), you get several black doctors, some white doctors, a Hispanic or two, then a token Asian. The composition in real life would be lots of white and Asian doctors and maybe one Cuban doctor. No blacks or Central Americans in most cognitively-demanding specialties.

    Now, I personally couldn't care less how many doctors are black or Asian on a dumb TV show, but I do care about the nature and intention of such propaganda.

    In a similar vein, America's racial hierarchy according to Hollywood was crystal clear to me when I saw a film called "Akeelah and the Bee" years ago:
    https://youtu.be/8Sf4Lwxg6lQ

    The heroes are, of course, black (Akeelah and her kind and intelligent mentor). Whites are the "system" (the people who run the contest, judges, etc.). The goofy, good natured Hispanic boy is the sidekick (ally of the heroes). The villain is the half-Asian/half-white kid who always wins and, of course, cheats in an effort to beat Akeelah. But even this villainous Hapa boy gets a conscience and comes around to supporting the noble Akeelah in the end. The true villain - all the way to the end of the film - is the Hapa boy's monstrous Asian Tiger father. Bonus point: mid-film, the black TV audience at a shop jeers at the Hapa boy onscreen and the Chinese shopkeeper chimes in, "That kid is Korean. We don't like Koreans either!"

    This whole point of discussion has gone on longer than I ever intended, so this will be my last comment on this specifically. By all means, offer your thoughts, but this is it.

    Getting that out of the way....

    1. Quite opposite to that actually, extremely fair skinned. Our family used to be Brahmans apparently before Islam, atleast the Bengali side. Unfortunately,(or fortunately) I am not dark skinned. These are not just my words actually, others have told me this too.

    2. India as a whole? Sure. Agreed a hundred percent. My family, contrary to the averagre Hindu, had a diametrically different lifestyle. Prospered at least our family

    3. Point taken but what does that have to do with privilege points?

    4. Maybe IDEK

    5. Laughably false. Many of the plaintiffs as part of the grand Harvard lawsuit were browns from India, Pakistan and iirc Bangladesh. Not to mention, Mindy Kalings brother did an interview on Fox about his experiences and how he had to fake being black.

    extremely fair skinned

    You mean like a Swede? I don’t think so. You are still “brown” in this country, just as my being very pale East Asian doesn’t make me any less “yellow” or “tan” here.

    My family

    That’s the whole point. It doesn’t matter if you are a part of the corrupt elite living like Mughal royalty back home. The fact that you are from the Third World qualifies for racial brownie points, just as the Obama daughters do.

    Laughably false. Many of the plaintiffs as part of the grand Harvard lawsuit were browns from India, Pakistan and iirc Bangladesh.

    Before you “laugh,” perhaps you should read the internal Harvard admissions documents that were found during discovery, which favors South Asians as more disadvantaged than East Asians (Chinese, Koreans, etc.). Sorry, the powers that be find you more Diverse and Oppressed.

    All of which is rather (mildly) amusing given that the average South Asian SES is far higher than that of East Asians in the U.S. due to the high immigration selectivity of the former (3/4 of South Asians have college degrees in the U.S. vs. 1/2 of Chinese and Koreans do, for example).

    And South Asians weren’t used to dynamite mountains and lay tracks for the railroads or pan for gold either, so their participation in the Harvard former-coolies/laundry worker, I mean “Asian,” lawsuit reveals some chutzpah to borrow a term from another ethnic group, i.e. “You guys just showed up and you already want both affirmative action and anti-affirmative action points?”

    Kalings brother

    No one was suggesting you were entitled to the same counter-privilege as blacks.

    It sounds more intellectual to use terms like “misogyny,” and the English language’s hyphenation rules don’t make sense. If you don’t have to care about pleasing editors, hyphens give you the renegade freedom to create your own, more descriptive words.

    The Germans just smush a bunch of words together, making an elongated word that fuses the meaning of several words in the service of creating a more specific or a more nuanced word. That system is more elegant, but in English, the hyphen is the only option to avoid accusations that you used a word that isn’t really a word. You did anyway, but that is because the word was not available.

    Black People often say someone is “hating on” another person.

    It would be nice to amalgamate many types of words, not just those conventionally associated with the hyphen arts.

    Anon sources report that humans hate-on the white man less than any group other than straight wo-men.

    That system is more elegant, but in English, the hyphen is the only option to avoid accusations that you used a word that isn’t really a word.

    throwing food attack
     
    This brings back memories.

    When I first came to the U.S. and went to junior high school, I ate at a school cafeteria for the first time in my life (in East Asia, my mother packed a thermos full of food and I ate in the classrooms with my peers).

    Some kid decided to make faces at me and, when I looked confused and didn’t respond, began to throw fries at me. I interpreted this as a very insulting gesture (treating me like an animal to whom to throw feed), so I jumped on the cafeteria table and soccer-kicked him full-force. The kid fell backward and was completely out for minutes. Meanwhile the whole cafeteria erupted in screams, jeers, and laughter.

    I was escorted away by teachers. I expected a beating from them, as would have happened in East Asia back in those days. Instead, I was told to show up for “detention” after school. I thought this would be where I would get the beating. Instead I was given a quiet room to read and study in peace as “punishment” to my utter amazement and bafflement.

    A couple of days later, this kid cornered me with another, really large kid after school. I sensed that they were about to attack me, so I punched the new kid on his left eye and while he was clutching it in pain and yelping, I front kicked him on the nose and then kneed him in the gut. The first kid ran off immediately. Apparently this spread like wildfire at school later, because nobody ever bothered me again and kids I later found out to be deemed “cool” asked to “hang out” with me (I was just confused by it all and a bit concerned and scared).

    Those were different times. The outcome of such actions would be very different today.

    Years later someone told me that junior high school was like prison - you just have to beat someone up the first day and establish your “cred” and I chuckled a bit inside. He wasn’t wrong - at least in my experience back in those days.

    Liar.

    I have long maintained that Asians are only marginally more 'woke' than white people. After all, wasn't Japan that evil fascist country which kept foreigners out for 1,000 years and then sided with Hitler? And then of course there was the whole Great Wall thing...

    I assume you watched the trailer
     
    I watched the film a year or so after it came out. And, yes, I get it.

    By the way, curiously enough, South Asians are missing from that story even though, in real life, they dominate the Spelling Bee.

    I've found lately that South Asians are typically cast as the moral conscience Asian characters in films, tv shows, and such while East Asians are often portrayed as bullies and rich villains (see the first season of "Cobra Kai"* for an example).

    *The rich bully/villain East Asian kid is shown to be not only a jackass, but an assimilated jackass (he was born in the U.S. and refuses to eat Sushi because it is weird), showing that not only is he a bad guy, he is an uncultured bad guy who doesn't even know his own culture!

    It's hard to console myself for supposedly having more victim points than white guys when I see treatment after treatment like this in the mainstream media. Sure, there are blond-haired, blue-eyed villains galore onscreen, but East Asian villains aren't just villains, but contemptible villains who know less of their own culture than white characters!

  94. You’re doing good analysis, but might I be so bold as suggest a trip to your local library for this work
