Recently, an Asian woman in Queens was knocked down by an angry man of apparently non-black ancestry. Patrick Mateo was arrested for the assault.

Mateo is a Spanish surname. But, who cares? He’s going to play the role of the long-awaited Great White Defendant in the current brouhaha about blacks attacking Asians.

From the New York Times opinion section, the umpteenth Asian-American woman writer weighs in on white people are bad:

Anti-Asian Racism Isn’t New

A frightening wave of attacks has Asian communities on edge. But I experienced street harassment long before the pandemic.

By Qian Julie Wang
Ms. Wang is the author of a forthcoming memoir about being an undocumented child in the United States.

Feb. 18, 2021, 4:40 p.m. ET

One of the first English words I learned was an ethnic slur I heard whenever my parents and I walked around the city. I was 7 years old and had just moved to Brooklyn from China. One day, eager to show off, I turned to my father and declared, “We are ch[****] now!”

The New York Times prints an ethnic slur for Chinese but I don’t.

in English. My father looked as if I had stabbed him. In a grave, low voice he told me to never utter that word again.

That slur has haunted me throughout my life, cutting like a knife when I least expect it. A boy on a bike once screamed it so deep into my ear that it rang for hours afterward.

I’m having a hard time picturing a boy riding by on a bike getting so close to one’s ear that your ear rang for hours afterward.

The ringing eventually subsided, but the street harassment became a regular fixture in my life.

Before the pandemic, the simple act of walking to the courthouse where I work demanded exhaustive control of my body. For a while I tried very hard to make myself look less feminine and more white. I’d pretend to be deaf when strangers addressed me with their eyes pulled back into a slant while taunting “Me love you long time” or loudly said they had “yellow fever.”

As the coronavirus spread, I began to dread my commute to work. People made a show of keeping away from me even in crowded subway train cars. Other times, the harassment was more overt — strangers bumped their shoulders into me; someone jabbed me with the pointy metal end of a long umbrella while shouting, “Go back to China.” My parents wore hats, sunglasses and double masks whenever they left the house.

The last time I took the train to work, in March, a man put his face inches away from mine and shouted “chink” while looking me dead in the eyes. Not one person came to my defense. The slur rang through my ears

She really ought to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor about all the ringing in her ears.

, transporting me back to my childhood. I haven’t set foot on a train or a bus since.

I’m far from alone. The United States has had a surge in violence against Asian-Americans during the pandemic.

… Though Anti-Asian sentiment has increased during the pandemic, it is woven into the very fabric of this country. The Page Act of 1875 effectively barred Chinese women, who were believed to spread sexual disease and to pose a threat to white values, lives and futures, from entering the country. The Chinese Exclusion Act, which was signed into law in 1882, was the first and only enacted legislation to prohibit immigration of all individuals of a particular national origin. The exclusion laws weren’t repealed until 1943, when Congress established an immigration quota for China of about 105 visas per year.

The country’s legal framework dehumanized Asian immigrants, and in turn emboldened Americans to brutalize us.

The recent spate of attacks is targeting the most vulnerable members of our community. Two assailants slapped an 89-year-old woman in the face and set her shirt on fire in Brooklyn last fall. In January, an 84-year-old man died after he was brutally attacked while on a morning walk in San Francisco. This week a 52-year-old woman waiting in line outside a bakery in Flushing, Queens, was rushed to the hospital after she was violently shoved and blacked out.

Many seem intent on ignoring our pain, marking us with the broad stroke of the condescending model-minority brush. They normalize racism against Asian-Americans, and allowed our former president to incite hatred using racist language like “Kung flu” and “China plague.”

At work, my boss accused me of being “oversensitive,” of making things about race that aren’t.

His accusations of oversensitivity have been, literally, ringing in my ears.

I have been told that Asian-Americans don’t experience racism. I half-believed it, thinking that I was taking things too personally, being too weak — too “Asian.” When I said that my former law firm needed to do more than pay lip service to the Black Lives Matter movement, the same boss, a white man who used the term “open kimono” in business meetings, dismissed the idea and declared that I, as an Asian-American, had it so much better than “them.”

As long as white supremacy is permitted to perpetuate a divide between Asian-Americans and Black and Indigenous people and other people of color, we can make no real progress against our common oppressor: the systems in our country that were designed to shut us all out. …

Okay, that was basically identical to about ten other op-eds by Asian-American women writers the NYT has published since coronavirus came along. But I liked the ringing-in-my-ears parts.

    I thought to myself, What next, a ban on kabuki?

    Consulting Wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabuki_dance

    Kabuki is a term used by American political pundits as a synonym for political posturing.... It first appeared in print in 1961 in the Los Angeles Times in an article written by Henry J. Taylor.... It refers to an event that is designed to create the appearance of conflict or of an uncertain outcome, when in fact the actors have worked together to determine the outcome beforehand. For example, Tom Brokaw used the term to describe U.S. Democratic party and U.S. Republican party political conventions, which purport to be competitive contests to nominate presidential candidates, yet in reality the nominees are known well beforehand. A more recent example of the use of this phrase by popular media in a Wall Street Journal article on the Supreme Court nomination hearing of Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
     
    And, wait for it ...

    It’s Time To Retire Kabuki
    https://slate.com/human-interest/2010/04/it-s-time-for-pundits-to-stop-using-the-word-kabuki.html

    This guy is more concerned that pundits don't understand real kabuki, than that it might be racist.

    Here's Ta-Nehisi Coates offhandedly and unconsciously using the word kabuki in a rant against racism against blacks.

    These two strands -- stupidity and racism -- are inseparable. The pairing seem to find a home at National Review with some regularity. It's been a little over a year since the magazine cut ties with self-described racist John Derbyshire for basically writing the same thing that Victor Davis Hanson writes here. Hanson couldn't even be bothered to come up with anything new. He just ripped off Derbyshire. His editors could evidently care less. A few days later the magazine cut ties with Robert Weissberg for offering pro tips to white nationalists. I'm not quite sure why they bothered with the kabuki. You are what your record says you are and at some point one must conclude that these are not one-offs, that the magazine which once blamed the Birmingham bombing on "a crazed Negro," is dealing with something more systemic, something bone-deep.

    One used to occasionally hear the expression “open the kimono” as a figurative expression for giving more information to keep discussions going in polite boardrooms during business negotiations. I also heard it at off-site retreats at some very nice resorts, but with a more literal bent. I haven’t heard it in recent years in those settings.

    There are some dumb guys out there. I've heard from several people I trust that stuff like she described both from her youth and from early Covid happened.

    Black guys do. I was friendly with an Asian girl years and years ago. When it became evident that I wasn’t fully in tune with the racial zeitgeist, she regaled me with tales of her being abused and harassed in exactly the same manner as the author of the subject piece.
    I asked her who would go around calling people names and propositioning them to their faces.
    Ever so reluctantly came the answer: “Well...black people.”

    This is a problem in academic writing, too. It’s a recent phenomenon called “Auto-Ethnography” which means sitting down in my sweats with my cat and a glass (or box) or wine and writing down “muh feelz”, instead of researching or reading.

    Exactly.

    Her whole whine screams "then why are you here?". If you don't like it--blame your parents and ... go back! You are here because your parents thought my ancestors had built a better nation than their ancestors. We did not ask you to come.

    Believe it or not, there is no entitlement for Chinese people to come here. It's America, not China.

    There was absolute nothing wrong with the Chinese Exclusion Act. Nothing. Foreigners of any stripe have absolutely no claim on entry to the United States, much less settlement.

    And guess what? At that same time the Chinese didn't allow random foreigners to settle there. In one of the Unequal Treaties the Chinese were forced to allow missionaries to enter. And plenty of Chinese thought that was beyond the pale--missionaries. Finally the Chinese rose up to drive foreigners out in the Boxer Rebellion, murdering hundreds of them. I can quibble with murdering people, but hard to argue with the Boxers' sentiment. They wanted the foreigners out. Hey, it's their country, they should say if any foreigners are allow in. And note, the Chinese still don't want me settling there. They are wise--i'm not Chinese.

    This is called ... normality. If you don't like being in America.... blame your parents and head back. We'll all live happily apart.

    Cardozo Law School (part of Yeshiva University, but located on lower Fifth Avenue, in the Village) is not, to my knowledge, "open-admissions." It is roughly on the same level as Fordham -- perhaps not nationally, but someone staying in New York City to practice will find law firms very receptive to Cardozo grads who have done well.

  15. “ The Page Act of 1875 effectively barred Chinese women, who were believed to spread sexual disease.”

    Chinese gangsters/businesspeople (?) of that time were bringing Chinese sex slaves into the country and locking them up in cages behind windows where men would purchase sex for peanuts. The women were used in this way until the women died. Often of sexual diseases. Their bodies often disposed of as one would dispose of garbage. This is the origin of the word ‘crib’. Christian groups organized against these practices and one side effect was the limiting of Chinese immigration.

    In San Francisco the practice was notorious.

    “While the federal Page Act of 1875 sought to prohibit the immigration of any women from “China, Japan or any East Asian country” suspected of prostitution, the tongs and their enablers widely ignored its provisions. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 went even further, prohibiting the immigration of all Chinese laborers, yet Chinese women continued to slip into the country illegally with the complicity of corrupt politicians and policemen, fueling a second wave of prostitution that swept through the state.”

    “ The Page Act of 1875 effectively barred Chinese women, who were believed to spread sexual disease.”

    Chinese gangsters/businesspeople (?) of that time were bringing Chinese sex slaves into the country and locking them up in cages behind windows where men would purchase sex for peanuts. The women were used in this way until the women died. Often of sexual diseases. Their bodies often disposed of as one would dispose of garbage. This is the origin of the word ‘crib’. Christian groups organized against these practices and one side effect was the limiting of Chinese immigration.

    In San Francisco the practice was notorious.

    “While the federal Page Act of 1875 sought to prohibit the immigration of any women from “China, Japan or any East Asian country” suspected of prostitution, the tongs and their enablers widely ignored its provisions. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 went even further, prohibiting the immigration of all Chinese laborers, yet Chinese women continued to slip into the country illegally with the complicity of corrupt politicians and policemen, fueling a second wave of prostitution that swept through the state.”

    I thought to myself, What next, a ban on kabuki?

    Consulting Wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabuki_dance

    Kabuki is a term used by American political pundits as a synonym for political posturing…. It first appeared in print in 1961 in the Los Angeles Times in an article written by Henry J. Taylor…. It refers to an event that is designed to create the appearance of conflict or of an uncertain outcome, when in fact the actors have worked together to determine the outcome beforehand. For example, Tom Brokaw used the term to describe U.S. Democratic party and U.S. Republican party political conventions, which purport to be competitive contests to nominate presidential candidates, yet in reality the nominees are known well beforehand. A more recent example of the use of this phrase by popular media in a Wall Street Journal article on the Supreme Court nomination hearing of Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

    And, wait for it …

    It’s Time To Retire Kabuki
    https://slate.com/human-interest/2010/04/it-s-time-for-pundits-to-stop-using-the-word-kabuki.html

    This guy is more concerned that pundits don’t understand real kabuki, than that it might be racist.

    Here’s Ta-Nehisi Coates offhandedly and unconsciously using the word kabuki in a rant against racism against blacks.

    These two strands — stupidity and racism — are inseparable. The pairing seem to find a home at National Review with some regularity. It’s been a little over a year since the magazine cut ties with self-described racist John Derbyshire for basically writing the same thing that Victor Davis Hanson writes here. Hanson couldn’t even be bothered to come up with anything new. He just ripped off Derbyshire. His editors could evidently care less. A few days later the magazine cut ties with Robert Weissberg for offering pro tips to white nationalists. I’m not quite sure why they bothered with the kabuki. You are what your record says you are and at some point one must conclude that these are not one-offs, that the magazine which once blamed the Birmingham bombing on “a crazed Negro,” is dealing with something more systemic, something bone-deep.

But this word is commonly (mis)pronounced as tinn-EYE-tiss, through confusion with the ending "-itis" (EYE-tiss), meaning "inflammation of the ...", as in gastritis = inflammation of the stomach (lining), hepatitis = inflammation of the liver, rhinitis = inflammation of the nose (mucous membrane).

    Wikipedia still has their exhaustive list of covid racism porn, many of the entries seem trivial in the extreme if not outright ‘thingsthathappened.txt’. Of course, given the demographics of many European countries, many of the unraced assailants are likely not native or even white. Not that wikipedia’s editors would be disturbed at stirring up resentments against the indigenous ethnicities of those places by ascribing such incidents to them implicitly.

    Black guys do. I was friendly with an Asian girl years and years ago. When it became evident that I wasn’t fully in tune with the racial zeitgeist, she regaled me with tales of her being abused and harassed in exactly the same manner as the author of the subject piece.
    I asked her who would go around calling people names and propositioning them to their faces.
    Ever so reluctantly came the answer: “Well...black people.”

    I sense backhanded, malicious irony in the use of the word “touted” (or maybe I am just too sensitive). Anyway – talk about rights – of course Americans have zero right to ever expect our immigration laws to be upheld and doubly certain that they won’t be if a clever and determined Asian can find away to con his way around them (Her father now works as a lawyer, hustling immigration law over in New Jersey.)

    But Qian Julie Wang’s young career heartens me in one important way. Ms. Wang attended Swathmore college and Yale law school. Almost certainly her presence in those envied institutions came at the expense of the spawn of liberal Goodwhites. Asians are not just knocking Goodwhites out of slots in the STEM/Medical field but are now competing and winning seats at the most powerful, career-setting institutions and in the most sought after fields of study. Somewhere out there a Goodwhite, and her parents, who had to settle for SUNY Binghamton or Fordham Law, is seething with resentment. This is a good thing.

    Believe it or not, there is no entitlement for Chinese people to come here. It’s America, not China.

    There was absolute nothing wrong with the Chinese Exclusion Act. Nothing. Foreigners of any stripe have absolutely no claim on entry to the United States, much less settlement.

    And guess what? At that same time the Chinese didn’t allow random foreigners to settle there. In one of the Unequal Treaties the Chinese were forced to allow missionaries to enter. And plenty of Chinese thought that was beyond the pale–missionaries. Finally the Chinese rose up to drive foreigners out in the Boxer Rebellion, murdering hundreds of them. I can quibble with murdering people, but hard to argue with the Boxers’ sentiment. They wanted the foreigners out. Hey, it’s their country, they should say if any foreigners are allow in. And note, the Chinese still don’t want me settling there. They are wise–i’m not Chinese.

    It's considerably below Fordham (which perhaps has come up in the world). US News ranks Fordham at #27, roughly in the same range as Emory whereas Cardozo is #53, in the same ballpark as Tulane or Temple.

    Regardless, being a Cardozo grad doesn't make you "low-IQ" except in comparison to a Yale grad. The average LSAT at Cardozo is 161 which roughly translates to a 120 IQ. A 120 IQ is not chopped liver. It puts you in the 90th percentile.

    Cardozo Law School (part of Yeshiva University, but located on lower Fifth Avenue, in the Village) is not, to my knowledge, "open-admissions." It is roughly on the same level as Fordham -- perhaps not nationally, but someone staying in New York City to practice will find law firms very receptive to Cardozo grads who have done well. (I have no dog in this hunt: I went to law school outside NYC.) It has a long way to go before anyone puts it in the same class as Columbia or NYU, but "bad" it isn't.

    Replies: @Jack D

    It’s considerably below Fordham (which perhaps has come up in the world). US News ranks Fordham at #27, roughly in the same range as Emory whereas Cardozo is #53, in the same ballpark as Tulane or Temple.

    Regardless, being a Cardozo grad doesn’t make you “low-IQ” except in comparison to a Yale grad. The average LSAT at Cardozo is 161 which roughly translates to a 120 IQ. A 120 IQ is not chopped liver. It puts you in the 90th percentile.

  110. When I said that my former law firm needed to do more than pay lip service to the Black Lives Matter movement, the same boss, a white man who used the term “open kimono” in business meetings, dismissed the idea and declared that I, as an Asian-American, had it so much better than “them.”

    The NYT is pure propaganda these days. There is no need for scare quotes around “them”. “Them” is not a racial slur. I am sure the NYT will justify that by saying that those weren’t “scare quotes,” “they” was a direct quote of what “a white man” said, but “c’mon,” that just means the “Times” is sophisticated propaganda.

    I suppose one might respect clever propaganda that obeys the technical rules of grammar use and journalistic rules. You know what I’d respect more “journalists” dropping the race war. Sure, the war is mostly cold right now, but is already heating up for blacks. All it will take is a serious economic downturn for the US to collapse.

    "[W]hen you are as founding stock as me there isn't much daylight be[twe]en Italians and blacks.

    Believe it or not, there is no entitlement for Chinese people to come here. It's America, not China.

    There was absolute nothing wrong with the Chinese Exclusion Act. Nothing. Foreigners of any stripe have absolutely no claim on entry to the United States, much less settlement.

    And guess what? At that same time the Chinese didn't allow random foreigners to settle there. In one of the Unequal Treaties the Chinese were forced to allow missionaries to enter. And plenty of Chinese thought that was beyond the pale--missionaries. Finally the Chinese rose up to drive foreigners out in the Boxer Rebellion, murdering hundreds of them. I can quibble with murdering people, but hard to argue with the Boxers' sentiment. They wanted the foreigners out. Hey, it's their country, they should say if any foreigners are allow in. And note, the Chinese still don't want me settling there. They are wise--i'm not Chinese.

    “ The Page Act of 1875 effectively barred Chinese women, who were believed to spread sexual disease.”

    Chinese gangsters/businesspeople (?) of that time were bringing Chinese sex slaves into the country and locking them up in cages behind windows where men would purchase sex for peanuts. The women were used in this way until the women died. Often of sexual diseases. Their bodies often disposed of as one would dispose of garbage. This is the origin of the word ‘crib’. Christian groups organized against these practices and one side effect was the limiting of Chinese immigration.

    In San Francisco the practice was notorious.

    “While the federal Page Act of 1875 sought to prohibit the immigration of any women from “China, Japan or any East Asian country” suspected of prostitution, the tongs and their enablers widely ignored its provisions. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 went even further, prohibiting the immigration of all Chinese laborers, yet Chinese women continued to slip into the country illegally with the complicity of corrupt politicians and policemen, fueling a second wave of prostitution that swept through the state.”

    With the exception of the period from January to March, nobody has been talking or thinking about China since this all started, infact, people have been talking and thinking about almost everything except China.

    What these Chinese people don't get is they were attacked by marginalised underclass people for the same essential reasons all middle class and up people who stray into their neighbourhoods are. If she was a redhead they'd have insulted her about that, she was Asian so they went after her for that.

    Are they that socially separated from these places that they really think it was because they were Asian?

    It kind of reminds me of the anti-bullying programme that was rolled out in Victoria in Australia. It wasn't really an anti-bullying programme, it was an anti-LGBTQI++++ anti-bullying programme. Bullying per se wasn't the problem. Similarly this women thinks the general abuse this guy throws at anyone who looks like an outsider isn't a problem, it was a problem because he made fun of her for being Asian.

Of course, given the demographics of many European countries, many of the unraced assailants are likely not native or even white. Not that wikipedia's editors would be disturbed at stirring up resentments against the indigenous ethnicities of those places by ascribing such incidents to them implicitly.

    Q: [D]o you pronounce tinnitus with the accent on the first or the second syllable?

    A: With the accent on the first syllable, TINN-ih-tuss. This comes from the Latin verb "tinnere", to tinkle. But this word is commonly (mis)pronounced as tinn-EYE-tiss, through confusion with the ending "-itis" (EYE-tiss), meaning "inflammation of the ...", as in gastritis = inflammation of the stomach (lining), hepatitis = inflammation of the liver, rhinitis = inflammation of the nose (mucous membrane).

    Lots of prisoners dead of Covid. That doesn't surprise me.

    But the part about the guards extorting Epstein is interesting. That might explain what drove him to suicide and why the guards conveniently looked the other way while he was killing himself. Dead men tell no tales (about being extorted by their prison guards).

    Replies: @JohnnyWalker123

    Given that Epstein was the most high-profile inmate in America, you’d think there would be a quick and thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. It’s bizarre that we have to rely on Twitter and various tabloids to ascertain what really happened.

    If he was extorted and then died, there should be a formal Congressional investigation into this.

We both asked tough questions that Dean Jeffrey Garten could not answer.

    She, some kind of athletic-looking, Japanese-American girl, noticed me and my intelligent question, and then she made her way over to me.

    She introduced herself and said she was a "quant jock." That was the first time I had ever heard that term. I hate terms like that.

    She gave me her phone number. (I didn't ask for it.) As I was on my way out, when I got on an elevator with the Dean of Admissions and some other people, while the doors were closing, she shouted to me, "You'd better call me!" The others chuckled and I smiled (proudly.)

    (n.) vaguely pejorative Cantonese slang for foreigner. Translations differ depending on who you ask. Apparently it was once meant to mean "foreign devil" (an extreme insult), but usually these days is said to mean "ghost man" due to white foreigner's pale skin and is used as a general term to mean foreigner. Gweilos get upset about being called this. Chinese think it's no big deal.

    Often accompanied by stares, gasps, and maybe even blatant pointing, the term laowai will undoubtedly ring in your wake as you walk the streets in China. Even in today's international world, foreigners in Asia are often a novelty or spectacle, particularly in rural areas or off-the-beaten-path places that see fewer tourists. Young children are especially unapologetic; they may boldly point you out to their parents then come tug your armhair to ensure it's real.

    You said "Main Street in Flushing is 100% Asian. Not 99%. 100%."

Tourists were there for the food - "Joe's Shanghai" as just one example of many. We were some, and we were not the only ones. This was less than 5 years back, but we'd also been about 8 years ago.

    Black people were walking along that main street, right perpendicular to the end of the #7 train line. (That's where we got off and on.) If you want pictures, you may have to wait a while. I don't see any reason to go again soon.

    BTW, I didn't say it was a slum. Quit assuming things. I said that there are plenty of black people there. In fact, I even thought about the fact that the mix of black people and the Chinese people (plenty of Koreans, I am told, too) might not be good for some of them.

    She showed him… the Chinatown sweatshops where she had once worked.

    “It was just kind of a magical, magical date,” she said.

    “He is just so openhearted…
    That’s what initially put me off, but that’s who he is.”

    I get down on one knee and I ask her to marry me again,” he said.
    ‘Really? Seriously?’” she said.

    “Not two days go by that he doesn’t look at me with tears in his eyes because he’s so excited about our life together,” she said.

    Real classy wedding announcement…
    Seems to me she married way up and is only as loyal as her options…
    She’s lucky to have found this guy. I can’t imagine anyone putting up with her…

    Stay away indeed.

    Rumor from YouTube comments is that they were standing in line at a bakery when she started arguing with him over a mask. She maced him. That obviously provoked him.

    So then this incident is not the same as previous incidents. Of course him having light skin, close shaved haircut, and a red shirt, make him the desperately sought narrative salvation.

    Even if she had maced him, it wouldn't excuse his boorish behavior. But it does have the ring of truth.

    What's also true is that if Karen had maced him, he'd be a saintly Hispanic, pushed to the brink by toxic whiteness.

    I think "Matt Buckalew" qualifies, although I doubt he's 100% on the level. See his comment on December 24, 2020 at 4:48 a.m. GMT (on Steve's post, "David Reich: ancient DNA shows..."). Here's the pertinent quote:

    "[W]hen you are as founding stock as me there isn't much daylight be[twe]en Italians and blacks. To say nothing it [sic] serbs and Greeks. 240 slaves and not a one tried to dynamite our plantation house. Not to mention much pink sludge or cholera in the Piedmont. We didn't even need 75 shotgun wielding Pinkertons to keep them working [,] just the understanding a dominated people have about those that dominate them."

    As I said, unlikely to be legitimate (he writes poorly for someone who claims to have attended Princeton, and seems fixated on his high school football exploits and the priapism it enabled), but he's the only commenter I could recall who appears "proud [his] ancestors used African labor."

    I am not wrong.

    I've been there many times. The last time I was there, about 5 years ago, I was the only white person. There was one Arab guy. No tourists, no blacks, no old white holdouts from the old days. No Hispanics, although per Mr. Mateo, that may have changed. I was astounded not merely at the change but the completeness of the demographic change. And this was a fairly nice area, working class, but not some crappy slum.

    You said “Main Street in Flushing is 100% Asian. Not 99%. 100%.” Maybe you meant the businesses are Oriental and the people WHO LIVE THERE, but no, you are wrong in that there are plenty of black people THERE. Tourists were there for the food – “Joe’s Shanghai” as just one example of many. We were some, and we were not the only ones. This was less than 5 years back, but we’d also been about 8 years ago.

    Black people were walking along that main street, right perpendicular to the end of the #7 train line. (That’s where we got off and on.) If you want pictures, you may have to wait a while. I don’t see any reason to go again soon.

    BTW, I didn’t say it was a slum. Quit assuming things. I said that there are plenty of black people there. In fact, I even thought about the fact that the mix of black people and the Chinese people (plenty of Koreans, I am told, too) might not be good for some of them.

    The fact is that this is very different from previous attacks.

    The video shows the man on a busy street in flushing. Previous attacks have been on isolated targets.

    Likely he and she were standing in line at the bakery. She noticed he wasn’t wearing a mask and make a scene. She demanded he leave, he refused, they argue, at some point she brings out the mace, maced him, pisses him off so he pushes her.

    It all doesn’t make sense. The street is very busy. There are dozens of witnesses around. Aside from the witnesses, there are dozens of people to potentially intervene.

    All previous attacks have occurred as the victims walked in isolated circumstances with no one around to help them and few witnesses to identify the culprits. That’s why it sometimes takes weeks to identify who did it, as occurred with the teenager who set the grandmother on fire.

    Ms. Wang is the author of a forthcoming memoir about being an undocumented child in the United States.
     
    She needs to go back.

    I haven’t set foot on a train or a bus since.
     
    She chalks that up to racism or "white supremecy", but it's really just because she doesn't want to ride the bus with minorities.

    The United States has had a surge in violence against Asian-Americans during the pandemic.
     
    Is this even true? I doubt it.

    Many seem intent on ignoring our pain, marking us with the broad stroke of the condescending model-minority brush. They normalize racism against Asian-Americans, and allowed our former president to incite hatred using racist language like “Kung flu” and “China plague.”
     
    The contagion did come from China, did it not?

    Maybe Whites resent people who sneek into this country illegally and then start compaining about it and us. Maybe Whites are fed up to here (holding hand above head) with this grievance racket. It's bulls**t. It's a grift, and we're tired of it. And I have no sympathy for the grifters of the East and South Asian variety. You didn't have to come here. We owe you nothing. Zippo. Nada.

In fact, it astonishes me how few whites are tired of it, and no, I’m not Pauline Kael who was baffled that Nixon was elected because no one she knew voted for him. For personal & business reasons I really do socialize with a wide variety of people outside my usual circle, and very few whites are ready to cut down on immigration and be honest about black crime and lack of legitimate educational credentials.

  207. It’s easy to tell which of these tormentors was white: she explicitly identifies them as “white”.

    No explicit ID? Well, we all know what that means. Those of us old enough to have read about, or witnessed, decades of unending Negro predation upon Asians don’t require code words or high signs.

    As long as white supremacy is permitted to perpetuate a divide between Asian-Americans and Black and Indigenous people and other people of color, we can make no real progress against our common oppressor…..

    That “divide” she refers to equals all the examples of eardrum-banging racism she supposedly experienced.

    These sorts of op-eds are always written by Asian women busily climbing the career ladder, and these days that means Hating Whitey.

    And if she intends to make the cash register go “ka-CHING!” (slur unintentional) she had better remember to remind the world at large who Our Common Oppressor is, no matter how many news clips she changes the channel on of grandmother and grandfather being murdered in the street by Jamaal Nation like so much disposable human trash.

    One of these days some enterprising Chinese-American man is going to break the REAL color line – the one that makes anyone noticing Negro predators attacking/murdering complete strangers into an instant Invisible Man – if only to put these Lace Tlaitors in their prace, and salvage a little face in the bargain.
