Asian-American Orgs Aim to Document, Expose Hate Crimes as Trump Administration Begins

As Asian-American groups across the country prepare for Friday’s inauguration, many are approaching the start of the next four years by launching projects aimed at tracking hate crimes and bias incidents.

“There has definitely been an uptick in hate incidents in the months leading up to and after the election,” Karin Wang, the Vice President of Programs and Communications at Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles told NBC News. “We felt that Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have always had to shoulder this outsider burden and that our stories have not been covered.”

Wang said that while hate incidents against Muslim Americans have received extensive coverage since the election, she says crimes against other members of the community may be being overlooked. “There have been attacks at Asian-American churches, there have been Asian Americans harassed in the street,” she said. “What we are worried about is that people are getting complacent.”

At the end of World War 2, the last man standing, USA, who suffered only minor scratches, established the foundation and led the march towards a globalized world economy. They like to tell you that it was due to “American benevolence” that all countries prospered.

Not quite.

While there were exceptions such as certain occupied vassal states like South Korea and Imperial Japan, both of whom grew under American protection and American technology transfers in exchange for military bases to pursue world domination

Other countries endured the latest incarnation of Western Imperialism.

For a while, it worked great. Non-white countries were plundered and made destitute while the West looked like a “good guy” while actually loan sharking them.

The first symbolic event that showed “free trade” and “Western competitiveness” wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be was Japan’s sudden “decade[s] of stagnation”. During the 1980s, Japan was predicted to take over USA as the world’s preeminent economic power. Anti-Japanese sentiment spread rapidly just like the anti-Chinese attitudes of the past 5 years [See Vincent Chin’s murder by two White men who mistaken him for a Japanese]. The rise of a non-white power? No! That was unacceptable to the White elites who “believe in free competition” and “all men are created equal”.

In 1985, America setup the Plaza Accord with Japan and other “allies” to orderly devalue the USD currency to make American exports more affordable on the world market [lower USd currency --> cheaper American exports --> more international buyers]. It worked and in effect, the America’s economy was saved by Japan economic harikari.

Fast forward to 2003 and USA pressured China to agree to Plaza Accord 2.0. Owing to the fact that China is much larger, is not militarily occupied, and is armed with thermnonuclear warheads, China said “no, thanks”. Much later, the Obama administration tried pressured China to free-float the Chinese currency. Again, China said “no.”

Without Chinese economic suicide to boost the the American economy, what did they do?

They elected Donald Trump whose platform relied heavily on anti-globalization because they could no longer compete

SOKk8jZ.jpg

And, that is how Westerners “compete”. Familiar right?

White man + non white women [after centuries of war, rape, and media mind control] = progressive, post-racial, true love
Non-White man + white women [after fighting through a racist society of White male jealousy and hate] = white genocide™

Whites dominates a sport that only rich people can afford to compete in [with a long history performance enhancing drug use] = Master race genetics
Chinese man wins a sport that anyone can compete in = cheaters, cruel training, robotic, soul-less + change the rules so they win less

Whites invade, commits genocide, and steals entire continents = Spreading White Christian civilization, human rights, freedom, and democracy
China building on tiny uninhabited islands in its own backyard = bullying, imperialism, totalitarian regime

Whites beat Blacks on IQ tests = Master race
Asians beat Whites on IQ tests = they’re not creative, no leadership skills, IQ is only a part of the story, they’re lemmings, etc

Another one to add to that ever growing list at http://forum.asiansoul.org/topic/427/guide-comebacks-aka-racist-whites-are-full-of-shit-so-tell-them-to-stfu

Racist White Guy Goes Berserk When German Girl Won’t Leave Her Asian BF for Him

A white supremacist went on a hate-filled, racist text message tirade after he was rejected from a date by a German woman who already had an Asian-Canadian boyfriend.

Canada-based Reddit user UmaiUmamiUnagi shared the obnoxious exchange with the racist guy via the subreddit creepyPMs, which was later reuploaded by user effortlessnetinho on the subreddit hapas (hapa being the term for a person of mixed ethnic heritage).

The text messages, which seemed to begin innocently enough with a “movie night” invitation with “friends,” soon escalated quickly into a barrage of creepily obsessive pronouncements in just a few exchanges.

“I’ve liked you since we met first year,” admitted the guy, followed by, “(Why) can’t you just give me a shot to show you how good I can love you?”

The woman replied that she wanted to speak to him at a public place in order to “have an adult conversation” about it. Not being able to take the hint, the guy pushes his intentions, finally asking who the girl was seeing at the time.

When the woman mentioned her boyfriend’s name, he flipped out even more. Having had enough, the girl tried to end the conversation by asking him to leave them alone and not to speak with her again.

That was when he went all out ballistic:

Artist Tyrus Wong’s remarkable life

The artist Tyrus Wong died just over a week ago, at the remarkable age of 106. Remarkable as well was the contribution he made to one of the most beloved films of all time. Tracy Smith learned all about his life story firsthand:

For decades, artist Tyrus Wong and his fantastic kites were a fixture on and above Santa Monica Beach.

And while you might not recognize his name, a certain deer named Bambi has Wong to thank for his exquisite settings in the Walt Disney 1942 film.

“He basically created the look of the film,” said Michael Labrie, director of collections at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. He curated an exhibition of Wong’s work in 2013. “Everything you see on the screen – the other artists were trained to draw like Tyrus for that film.”

Wong was working a tedious, entry-level job at Disney in 1938, when he heard about the studio’s plans to adapt Felix Salten’s book into a movie.

Labrie said Wong spent weekends at home doing hundreds of drawings, “sort of like Chinese scroll paintings.”

Walt Disney himself decided that the look of the film would be based on Wong’s drawings.

The 74-year-old film is beloved by generations, including Los Angeles filmmaker Pamela Tom, says, “Tyrus really contributed to American culture.”

She was watching “Bambi” with her daughter back in 1997, when she happened to catch Tyrus Wong’s name in the credits. “My first thought was, ‘Wait a minute, a Chinese-American working at Disney in the 1930s?’” Tom said. “I just had to find out who he was.”
