Asian Paper’s ‘I Hate Blacks’ Column Assailed




AR Articles on Racial Conflict

Leslie Fulbright, San Francisco Chronicle, Feb. 27, 2007

A San Francisco weekly newspaper that bills itself as “The Voice of Asian America” is facing harsh criticism from that very community for publishing a column Friday titled “Why I Hate Blacks.”

In the column, AsianWeek regular contributor Kenneth Eng listed “reasons” to discriminate against African Americans. The piece has been pulled from the newspaper’s Web site, but the print edition of the free paper, owned by the politically influential Fang family, was still available in news racks Monday.

Eng called himself an “Asian supremacist” in January in another installment of the column, which runs under the label “God of the Universe.”

Prominent Asian Americans immediately condemned Eng’s current column.

“The hate is based on ignorance and is very similar to the rationales that the KKK uses against African Americans,” said Henry Der, director for 22 years of Chinese for Affirmative Action and the former state administrator for Emeryville’s schools.

“What gives me the greatest concern was AsianWeek’s judgment in printing such a piece out of context,” Der said. “It is so trite and hateful, it doesn’t speak well for the publication.”

San Francisco NAACP President Amos Brown, who heard about the column from a Chronicle reporter, was speechless at first.

“I can’t believe this,” Brown then said. “I am surprised the Fangs, who have supposedly been involved in interracial-understanding issues, would publish something like this. I am flabbergasted. We can’t afford for these kind of racist flames to be fueled in that kind of setting.”

{snip}

Eng, who is in his early 20s, according to material on the Internet promoting his science fiction writing, started at AsianWeek in November after moving from the East Coast. In 2004, for an online magazine called Down in the Dirt, he wrote about experiencing racism as an Asian American student at New York University after he “expressed my negative views on America, religion and African Americans.”

Other AsianWeek columns of Eng’s—including “Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us” and “Why I Hate Asians”—have resulted in criticism. In the first, he complained about the scarcity of Asian heroes in the media. In the second, he described Asian Americans as apathetic, brown-nosing and lacking in cultural pride.

{snip}

Leaders of the Asian Law Caucus, Asian American Justice Center, Chinese for Affirmative Action and other groups and individuals began circulating a petition Friday calling for the paper to apologize, terminate its relationship with Eng, print an editorial refuting the column and review its editorial policy. The leaders’ statement, issued in Washington, D.C., called the piece “irresponsible journalism, blatantly racist, replete with stereotypes and deeply hurtful to African Americans.”

In its statement, AsianWeek, which has a circulation of 48,505, said it “sincerely regrets any offense caused by the one opinion piece which reflected that author’s personal views. We apologize for any harm or hurt this has caused the African American community. AsianWeek has great respect for all that the African American community has done for Asian Pacific Americans.”

David Lee of the Chinese American Voters Education Committee said Eng’s statement echoes the feelings of some Asian Americans. He said that rather than condemning the paper, black and Asian people should participate in a town hall-style meeting to address tension he said exists between the two communities.

{snip}

The paper said it will announce in this Friday’s edition plans to co-sponsor a town hall-style meeting with the Willie L. Brown Jr. Institute on Politics & Public Service.

{snip}

Ling-chi Wang, retired chairman of the ethnic studies department at UC Berkeley, said there is an urgent need for Asian Americans to be aware of the history of this country and know that Asian American gains have come largely as a result of the efforts of black people.

Kenneth Eng, AsianWeek, Feb 23, 2007

Here is a list of reasons why we should discriminate against blacks, starting from the most obvious down to the least obvious:

• Blacks hate us. Every Asian who has ever come across them knows that they take almost every opportunity to hurl racist remarks at us.

In my experience, I would say about 90 percent of blacks I have met, regardless of age or environment, poke fun at the very sight of an Asian. Furthermore, their activity in the media proves their hatred: Rush Hour, Exit Wounds, Hot 97, etc.

• Contrary to media depictions, I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It’s unbelievable that it took them that long to fight back.

On the other hand, we slaughtered the Russians in the Japanese-Russo War.

• Blacks are easy to coerce. This is proven by the fact that so many of them, including Reverend Al Sharpton, tend to be Christians.

Yet, at the same time, they spend much of their time whining about how much they hate "the whites that oppressed them."

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Christianity the religion that the whites forced upon them?

• Blacks don’t get it. I know it’s a blunt and crass comment, but it’s true. When I was in high school, I recall a class debate in which one half of the class was chosen to defend black slavery and the other half was chosen to defend liberation.

Disturbingly, blacks on the prior side viciously defended slavery as well as Christianity. They say if you don’t study history, you’re condemned to repeat it.

In high school, I only remember one black student ever attending any of my honors and AP courses. And that student was caught cheating.

It is rather troubling that they are treated as heroes, but then again, whites will do anything to defend them.

“In my experience I would say about 90% of blacks…”
First off, the mandatory white disclaimer. I don`t hate blacks. I haven`t had enough conflict or even contact with this group to hate them. Or love them. Who I really hate, is the media, because in dealing with “issues” like immigration or refugee resettlement, rather than mere individuals they consistently ” attempt to sell me the water without the wet.”

All right. That being said, In my experience, I have never accosted or cajoled or hustled or even tried to initiate contact with any African American on the street, while I can hardly say the same about them. Not by a long shot. “In my experience…”

Posted by Tim Mc Hugh at 5:48 PM on February 27

What an obnoxious and hastily written bunch of childish hatemongering. For somebody who rails against Blacks for allowing themselves to be Christianized and civilized by Whites, he sure has done an excellent job of inculcating the uniquely Western habit of claiming to be the hapless victim of everybody and everything.

It’s hard to feel sorry for a group of people that is statistically more wealthy, more educated, and less victimized by violent crime. Mr. Eng has overcome staggering odds and found a way to pity himself and his allegedly beleagured people.

“Contrary to media depictions, I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It’s unbelievable that it took them that long to fight back.”

This is simply incorrect. Slavs, or slaves, were a feature of Roman society for far longer than three hundred years, to cite just one example. American slaves did fight back (e.g., Nat Turner, John Brown) but unsuccessfully, as they didn’t succeed in winning their freedom. It took the deaths of 600,000 white Americans to gain their freedom.

“Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Christianity the religion that the whites forced upon them?”

He is wrong, and in need of correction. I don’t know of any case where American slaves were forced to adopt Christianity. They willingly became Christians. I have read of cases where slaveholders denied preachers access to their slaves. Some just didn’t like Christianity, while other slaveholders were concerned about the lessons preachers might impart to their slaves. And in colonial times, slaveholders were discouraged from converting their slaves on grounds that it would be morally dubious to hold other Christians as slaves.

“Blacks don’t get it. I know it’s a blunt and crass comment, but it’s true. When I was in high school, I recall a class debate in which one half of the class was chosen to defend black slavery and the other half was chosen to defend liberation.”

Most black slaves didn’t dislike slavery per se. Rather, they felt being enslaved was a personal misfortune. When given the chance, blacks were just as eager to own slaves as their white counterparts. Only two states (Arkansas and Delaware) forbade blacks from holding slaves. Black slaveholders existed in every other state where slavery was legal. The liberals don’t want us to recognize that slavery was ubiquitous in pre-industrial societies; it was just one more fact of life.

It is trite and poorly written, especially as the author claims to have been an honors student. Still, I would like to see his take on alleged whie hatred of Asians.

Posted by at 6:17 PM on February 27

Mr Eng hits a few nails on the head. It is self hating white people that are to blame. Blacks have NO power except what has been given to them by White people. Every Asian I know feels the same as the above gentlemen.

Whites no longer need low cost labor. We can automate. Machines do not scream racism. Nor do robots declare Jihad! What will blacks do when they get dropped? I can guarantee the readers of Amren …….Asians (and Indians) are lining up to snatch Africa from the Africans.

Posted by DS1 at 6:48 PM on February 27

Apart from any comments on the articles veracity (and Id say its 90% right)..

Its going to get harder and harder to have special preferences for Blacks as other non-white racial groups gain cohesion. That sounds to me, happily, to be a great injustice slowly being undone.

Posted by Mensarefugee at 6:58 PM on February 27

I believe him, when he says blacks poke fun at the very site of Asians. We’ve created a society where physical strength or anger is supposed to be a sign of social strength.

The mainstream media have convinced us of that which is the exact opposite of the truth. They’ve convinced us that blacks riot, because they are oppressed, and not because they see the government as weak. They’ve encouraged blacks to be violent, and then tell us that violence, is actually a sign of victimhood. That beating a dog makes it mean, when in reality beating a dog only makes it permanently cower. People believe what they’ve taught us - shown us - on TV. ‘Toughness’, is a sign of having been abused - a sign of virtual sainthood. The reality is, these Asians kids made fun of, have probably experience more discipline in a year than these black kids ever will (Now, I do think there’s TOO much discipline in the home nowadays, and not enough parenting).

It does seem odd Asians don’t fall under the umbrella of protection having darker skin normally provides one with. As America becomes more multiracial, the protection of dark coloring Asians and other groups wear will probably provide less and less protection. And there’s something going on here too, with the thinking that, being bigger and stronger, and move violent? and being darker, automatically qualifies one for popularity or leadership. It’s already true as far as being darker is concerned but I think there are those who would work (and are working) to make this more and more true, for simply being bigger or stronger or more good looking. Can’t discriminate by race forever you know…

Posted by Dinosaur hatchling at 7:32 PM on February 27

Dear Kenneth, I also lament that the drivel of diversity and inclusiveness is the prevailing thoughtfilth but, vis-a-vis your last sentence—understand clearly that the WORST of whites make excuses for and/or defend blacks—NOT all, NOR even most. With that I see that you are a bit too “racially” optimistic believing that “whites (read all) will do anything to defend them”. In order to convey my respect for the asian mind though, I have in the past and will in the future proclaim “It’s funny but I never hear the asians complaining about “cultural bias” on standardized tests!”

Posted by Captain Intolerance at 7:40 PM on February 27

There isn’t anything the Asian writer says about blacks that isn’t true. He obviously has bothered to observe them instead of treating them like a “sacrd cow” and kow towing to them.

His statements are also relatively mild. There’s no real venom in them.

Posted by at 7:42 PM on February 27

there is an urgent need for Asian Americans to be aware of the history of this country and know that Asian American gains have come largely as a result of the efforts of black people.

LMAO, of course because they aren’t buying the ‘cultural differences’ as an explanation for the black - white SAT / IQ test differential, because foreign born poor Chinese students do better on these test than even affluent African Americans. What have black people ever done to help Asian people in this country? Weren’t Koreans brutally targetted during the LA riots?

And yes, white people “hate” you and you are under represented, even though you are vastly over represented at Ivy League schools and since 1 in 20 Americans are Asian, how many “Public Heroes” would you like to see that are Asian?

Posted by Patrick at 8:04 PM on February 27

“It is rather troubling that they are treated as heroes, but then again, whites will do anything to defend them.”

Well, whatever else we may say about this Eng fellow, we have to admit he does have a point there. Us whites are our own worst enemy when it comes to race issues.

Posted by TJ at 8:04 PM on February 27

tho this guy obviously has a negative view with whites too, he does bring up points, valid ones

tho, he doesnt have much of a reason to whine about them. he has asian countries he can go to free of the third world infestation. whites do not have a white country to go to anymore, all of them are infected

Oh, wouldn’t that be fun—LOL!!!

Asians and whites do seem to have one thing in common, their “leaders” all seem to harbor the delusion that blacks and Hispanics can be reasonable and quid pro quo in the ironing out of “tensions.” The fact of the matter is that any “town hall-style meeting” between the two groups, would likely do more to solidify those feelings that this Eng’s sentiments “echo” among those that hold them already, then would be dispelled?

Seriously, once in aggrieved “entitlement” mode blacks are like mambas on crystal meth, all over the place and in your face
hissing!

Posted by John PM at 8:16 PM on February 27

This looks to me like a publicity stunt. Could it be that the leftist asians in San Francisco are using their black friends for some asian-owned business shakedown? I smell a rat. Nobody these days publishes something so obviously truthful without some sort of angle.

The response to this is to propose a town-hall meeting?

This response, is proof, ‘a town hall meeting’, ‘responsible journalism’, ‘aware of the history’ and ‘Asian week’ all just mean blaming whites for every problem, and business as usual.

“In my experience, I would say about 90 percent of blacks I have met, regardless of age or environment, poke fun at the very sight of an Asian. Furthermore, their activity in the media proves their hatred: Rush Hour, Exit Wounds, Hot 97, etc.

I will have to say TRUER WORDS OF RACIAL REALISM HAVE NEVER BEEN SPOKEN. And let’s not forget the physical attacks that Blacks conduct with impunity because Asians are physically weaker and smaller and live in cities where GUN CONTROL is the law propagated by the Democratic Party in order that African-American physical intimidation can dominate the non-Black communities.

There was racial tensions between blacks and whites at my old high school. When the influx of south east Asians came in, white became the nuetral color…
That was in Des Moines Iowa

Blacks, and their White enablers, are terrified of any negative depiction of Blacks, because they suspect that a Pandora’s-box effect would ensue. To them, a black snowball rolling down a long hill would not be a comely sight.

I’m still waiting for the “black community” to apologize for the suffering they continually cause Asians through their crime and harrassment.

Posted by Jewamongyou at 11:25 PM on February 27

It is certainly true that many blacks hate Asians, but much of Mr Eng’s rant misses the mark. It did not take 300 years for blacks to liberate themselves from slavery. It took 300 years for whites to liberate blacks from slavery.

“On the other hand, we slaughtered the Russians in the Japanese-Russo War.”

If I were to brag about how we whites vaporized the Japanese at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I think Mr. Eng would take that as proof of white depravity, not white superiority.

“Blacks are easy to coerce. This is proven by the fact that so many of them, including Reverend Al Sharpton, tend to be Christians.”

Blacks are not coerced into being Christians. Neither are the many Asians who are Christians. The more radical blacks become Muslims, because they see it as an anti-white religion, even though the Islamic world continued the practice of black slavery long after it was abandoned in the West.

“In high school, I only remember one black student ever attending any of my honors and AP courses. And that student was caught cheating.”

Well, this I believe. There are far more black geniuses in the fictional depictions of Hollywood than there are in real life.

“It is rather troubling that they are treated as heroes, but then again, whites will do anything to defend them.”

Not here.

Posted by WR at 11:40 PM on February 27

Well, Mr. Eng’s science fiction “writing” is yet another example that shows Asians have little imagination and poor verbal and analytical skills. He is correct though in his assesment that most blacks do not like Asians. Most blacks do not like anyone who isn’t black.

Mr. Eng; “On the other hand, we slaughtered the Russians in the Japanese-Russo War.” Well, the Japanese needed British Naval Commanders to oversee their naval battle against the Russians, and in fact the Brits had schooled the Japanese by request. The Japanese haven’t exactly fared too well in any endeavors the last several hundred years without whites showing them the way or without flat out copying whites. However, this truth would probably shatter Mr. Eng’s fragile ego, over-blown as it is.

Again, in this debate everyone forgets that the North never had mass slavery and sacrificed a generation of their own young men to stop it. How is it that we get lumped in with Alabama and the segregationist South?

Posted by Amsterdamsky at 3:58 AM on February 28

Shoddy, but expresses an understandable sentiment. But Mr Eng, don’t you think Yellow Supremecism would be best left to yellows in, you know, China? Why on earth would you imagine whites to take kindly to your boasting? Nevertheless, thanks for tipping your hand.

Oh, and no one named “Eng” ever slaughtered the Russians.

I won’t even to attempt to address the areas that this Leslie Fulbright has attempted to cover in his spew. Many other far more eloquent writers than I have already done a good job of that.

It is worth pointing out however, that Fulbright’s writing style is stilted, semi-coherent, and full of non sequiturs which closely approximate the vices of articulation that retard Blacks in their progress.

Rather than expend energy denouncing this guy and groveling for the faux pas of publishing him, the Oriental community would be better served by seeking a more qualified replacement for him.

It’s pretty obvious after reading 3 of Mr. Eng’s articles that he’s not going to be happy with anyone who doesn’t share his particular view. While he points out a couple of compelling examples, he goes over the line by suggesting they are an absolute norm instead of unique incidents. While the fits the example of a typical bigot, he readily admits his exposure is limited, so anyone taking his articles seriously is more than likely trying to push their own agenda and just using Eng as gasoline for the fire.

I find it interesting that a Chinese is now taking credit for having “slaughtered” the Russians in the 1904-05 war. While he’s at it, is Eng going to take credit for the Rape of Nanking?

Posted by Michael C. Scott at 10:30 AM on February 28

When I read the AR piece on Mr. Eng’s writing I was hoping “Why I hate Blacks” would have some well thought points unique the the Asian communities relationship with American Blacks, I was sorely disappointed. Engs writing was childish and rambling. There was no real intelectual substance and it lacked many of the qualities you expect from a journalist.
How this made it past the editors of the paper, on poor writing alone, is beyond me.

Posted by Peter at 11:41 AM on February 28

No matter if you agree or disagree with this man…he has the right to his views. Of course, if the same had been written by a white, the white would be arrested for a hate crime and civil rights violations! If it were a black writing this about whites…not a peep would be heard! And if there were? People would be rushing to his defense…stating that he had a “right” to say what he believes!

Posted by Suzan at 12:47 PM on February 28

A few very loose comments here:

First Eng seems to “hate” everyone - blaming whites, Asians (“Why I hate Asians”), and of course blacks. I’m not sure what he wrote in the first two, but it seems that criticism about blacks deserves more, hmmmm, “care”.

He “proceeded down from the most obvious to the least obvious.” Having not contacted too many blacks directly I actually find the last point the most obvious. The fact is that whites and Asians really are separate streams from blacks (and to a lesser extent hispanics) in universities. See these 1995 stats (maybe someone can upload more recent ones)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/96/1995-SAT-Income.png/800px-1995-SAT-Income.png

Note: there are other stats where whites are ahead of Asians. But the important thing to note is: whites/Asians from the lowest parental socioeconomic status (SES) score about the same than blacks from the highest parental socioeconomic status/education!! White liberals, take note!

Else you wouldn’t need affirmative action in undergraduate, medical, or law schools. For instance, at U of Michigan till recently:

(1) *** Undergraduate ***

Probabilities of admission. Converted into probabilities of admission, an in-state male candidate with no alumni connection, and with an SAT score and a GPA equal to the medians for black admittees for each year, would have significantly greater chances of admission if black or, to a lesser extent, if Hispanic compared to whites and Asians. The gap between blacks versus whites and Asians increases over time.

In 1999, the candidate would have the following probabilities:

• a 28 percent chance of admission if black,
• a 12 percent chance if Hispanic, and

• a 1 percent chance if white or Asian.

The chances for admission if black or Hispanic rise steadily from 1999 to 2005. They remain basically the same if Asian or white. In 2005, a male Michigan resident with no parent ties to UM and with the same test scores and grades as the average black admittee would have the following chances of admission:

• a 43 percent chance if black,
• a 28 percent chance if Hispanic,

• a 0 percent chance if Asian, and

• a 1 percent chance if white.

(2) **Medical School ***
Probabilties of Admission. Likewise, probabilities of admission favor blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics over whites and Asians for every year. For instance, an in-state male candidate, with no parent connection to UMMS and with an MCAT score and

science GPA equal to the medians for black admittees, in 1999 would have had the following probabilities of admission:

• a 72 percent chance if black;
• a 17 percent chance if Hispanic;

• a 2 percent chance if Asian; and

• a 6 percent chance if white.

In 2005, chances of admission for candidates with credentials of the average black admittee were greater for blacks than in 2004, while changing little for the other groups. The chance of admission for a male applicant from Michigan with no parent who attended UMMS and with the same test scores and science grades as the average black admittee in 2005:

• rises to 23 percent if black;
• drops to 7 percent if Hispanic; and

• drops to 1 percent if Asian or white.

(Comment: You’d have thought that people’s lives are more important than political correctness and equality of outcome? Oh wait! Actually death can be defined as equality of outcome!)

(3) *** Law School ***
Probabilities of Admission. These disparities can also be expressed in terms of probabilities of admission. The probabilities of admission in 1999 of an in-state male candidate, with no parents having attended the law school and with an LSAT score and a GPA equal to the black admittee median of that year, would be as follows:

• 79 percent chance of admission if black;
• 28 percent chance if Hispanic;

• 4 percent chance if Asian; and

• 9 percent chance if white.

In 2005, the same candidate would have the following chances of admission:

• 68 percent if black;
• 28 percent if Hispanic;

• 8 percent if Asian; and

• 10 percent if white.

And the Asian dislike of blacks is not exactly new. Remember Condi’s visit to China?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,1461208,00.html

“He says that of 800 messages he has read about her visit, no less than 70 involved racist comments about her colour: of these, only two were relatively moderate; the rest were vicious, describing Rice as a “black ghost”, “black dog”, “black woman” and “black bitch”. One stated, “You are not even like a black ghost, a really low form of life,” and another, “Her brain is even more black than her skin.” One writer said: “I don’t support racism, but this black ghost really makes people angry, the appearance of a little black who has made good.”

Another sample includes:

http://www.smh.com.au/news/World/China-forgets-manners-as-Rice-visit-touches-nerves/2005/03/25/1111692629223.html

“How come the United States selects a female chimpanzee as Secretary of State?”
“This black woman thinks rather a lot of herself.”

“She’s so ugly she’s losing face. Even a dog would be put off its

dinner while she’s being fed.”

I in no way condone the above and find them distasteful. By posting the above I just wanted to illustrate the attitudes of some (? many) East Asians towards blacks that probably stem from historical cultural considerations of the “middle kingdom mentality” and the lack of white liberal guilt. These attitudes in turn lead Asians to see blacks less favorably in the first case and more realistically in the second.

Posted by EAsianStudent at 1:29 PM on February 28

When Reginald Denny was caught driving his rig and beaten damn near to death, several Asians were also attacked. 2 unfortunates were beaten and urinated on by victims of racist oppresion.
On the second day after we heard the cocaine smoking , robber thug, ask us, Why can`t we all just get along ? ” The Korean defense alliance had a rally to encourage racial understanding. The first speaker held up his Glock and screamed , ” Death to the black devils. “

Remember the coureagous Korean grocers blasting away at the looters? Asians stay with their own kind and that is great with me. I really liked the statement, ” We only had one black kid in our advanced classes and he was caught cheating.” What a hoot.

Posted by Soprano Fan at 3:00 PM on February 28

The unwillingness of Asians to give blacks a free pass on their own criminality is not exactly newsworthy. Neither is the fact that most blacks hate Asians just as much as they hate whites. Asians were never part of either slavery or the old Jum Crow system; blacks hate them for the same reason they hate Jews - they can’t stand the presence of a successful minority group. That Mr. Eng chose to defend Hmong murderer Chai Vang in print in his anti-white diatribe is remarkable, in that it evidences some deep-seated psychological problems on Eng’s part. While providing strictly anecdotal evidence that some whites hate Asians, he overlooks an enormous body of exculpatory evidence, like the huge number of infertile white couples who spend a lot of money adopting Chinese and Korean kids, when instead they could adopt black babies here in the USA for very little financial outlay. He ignores the fact whites and Asians can and do get along on intimate terms; of Asians living in the US, 1/3 of the women and 1/6 of the men marry whites. He ignores the fact that so many Asians move to the mostly-white United States, mostly-white Australia, and mostly-white New Zealand precisely because they are appealing places in which to live. He ignores the fact that the white-run United States paid to totally reconstruct war-ravaged Japan and South Korea.

If Eng truly feels as persecuted and unsafe as he claims, perhaps he should consider moving to Taiwan. It is a modern country, now a stable democracy, and is populated totally by Eng’s fellow ethnic Chinese. This would require a level of honesty about both himself and whites that Eng appears to lack, however. Were Eng this honest, his two editorials would have been combined into one under the title “I Hate Everybody And I Don’t Really Even Need A Reason.”

Without seeing it, I suspect it’s mostly “Whites do X for blacks and other minorities but don’t do X for asians”.

The Japanese victory in the 1904-05 war with Russia was hardly the lopsided “slaughter” Eng suggests. Japan won the naval battle off Round Island after two lucky hits, but the issue was very much in doubt before then. The naval battle off Ulsan resulted in one Russian armored cruiser going down, but two others escaped to Vladivostok. Since Admiral Kamimura’s cruiser squadron outnumbered the Russians by six cruisers to three, better results should have been possible. The fighting on land around Port Arthur, particularly for the 203 meter hill resulted in gruesome casualties on both sides. Only the naval battle of Tsushima was a truly lopsided victory, helped by the fact that the Russian ships had travelled all the way from the Baltic, around Africa, across the Indian Ocean and up the Chinese coast. This meant that the hull bottoms were covered with weeds and other marine growth, which slowed them considerably. The Russian ships were also overloaded with coal, which submerged their armor belts, and only Admiral Nebogatoff’s battleship division discarded their wooden furniture prior to the battle; the remaining Russian ships remained quite flammable. The Battle of Tsushima earned Japan better terms at the Portsmouth peace conference than the situation on land would have obtained her; the Japanese army was out of reserves, while the Russians still had plenty.

The next time Japan and Russia fought, at Nomonhan in 1938, resulted in the Russians, well-led by General Zhukov, annihilating two entire Japanese divisions. This is the main reason why Japan did not attack Russia in 1941 when Germany did.

That Eng, an ethnic Chinese would need to “borrow” this particular Japanese military victory speaks volumes about the bankruptcy of his argument, in addition to being amusingly ironic. The Japanese won the 1904-05 war because they had successfully modernized their society along Western lines and had adopted Western technology. China lost its 1895 war with Japan because it had not.

Mr. Eng really represents the spirit of Diversity in the year 2007.

I thought Asian Week was a somewhat mainstream piece of the media. Could you imagine a White Supremacist being featured in a similiar “whiter” magazine? It makes you wonder what is written in the newspapers and magazines that are in a foreign language.

But as Suzan stated above let the free speech reign. We have nothing to fear from free and open discourse. I wish we all could speak freely about such sensitive topics.

I just read all of these articles and my initial gut reaction is that it exemplifies why an ultra-diverse, wide open border society is doomed to failure. I see some cheer the disparaging remarks against blacks (note that it was the anti-black remarks that caused the s—- to hit the fan) but read the anti-white article. Actually the two anti-white articles as his anti-Asian comments seem to revolve around Asians being sell-out conformists in the face of American “racism”.

I definetly get an uneasy feeling reading these articles but maybe it has to get worse before it can get better.

Mr Scott, you are right. Eng’s disatribe is actually a facinating
case study in the schizophrenic, conflicted self - deception that virtually everyone in a multi-cult must practice in order to preserve their daily sanity.

“chances of admission:

• a 43 percent chance if black,
• a 28 percent chance if Hispanic,

• a 0 percent chance if Asian, and

• a 1 percent chance if white.”


I wouldnt limit these ‘chances of admission’ only to university admission… I’m sure there are other prizes out there that follow this pattern too…

Does this guy really think that Whites hate Asians? More and more whites ARE getting completely fed up with blacks, as even the more naive whites are coming to realize that the depiction of them in the popular media simply doesnt square with the ugly reality-but “hate Asians”? I think most whites are generally OK with Asians because by and large, they are seen to be law-abiding, intelligent, and hard working-unlike blacks. You may or may not be crazy about Asian culture or ways, but hey, if they are not a danger to your health and wellbeing, and to that of society at large, then who really cares?

Posted by BTK at 11:02 PM on February 28

Eng hits the nail on the head, alright. Little mention is ever made in the MSM about “Hate Crimes” perpetuated on Asians by Blacks because this is an almost daily occurence all across the US. Indeed, most local media outlets will go so far as to out-and-out omit the race of the perpetrator when the victim is Asian because it goes without saying that the perp will be… yep, you guessed it… Black. Funny how these “Hate Crimes” perpetrated by the Black Community never get into the news.

Outside of the Korean community, both here in the US and across the ocean in 대한민국 (Korea), the overwhelming Black-on-Korean violence of the L.A. Riots of 92 was conveniently omitted by the MSM.

Ah, I forgot though. It is only the BLACK community that suffers from “Hate Crimes.” They are always only Victims. They never NEVER perpetrate “Hate Crimes” against other races.

Yeah… right…

Kenneth Eng brags about the Japanese victory in the war against Russia in 1904, as something to be proud of.
Possibly Kenneth Eng is of Chinese descent - in the early twentieth century Japan inflicted many humiliating defeats on China despite being heavily out-numbered on Chinese soil.

- And by the way, Marshal Zhukov in 1944-5, got in Russia’s revenge in a spectacular way for the insult of forty years earlier.

Even though blacks today more than ever beg borrow and steal from the white gene pool through misegenation they still consider themselves black negating the white intelligence factor since the mind controls the body in every way. They never learn.

One of the more comical posts to Asian Week’s discussion forum expressed admiration for Yukio Mishima. He was as queer as a three-dollar bill, and in 1970, he and four of his boyfriends tried to take over a Japanese military base. He gave the troops a stern lecture about traditional Japanese spirit, and they heckled him. After all, they were all Self Defense Force volunteers; who was Mishima to be lecturing them on their patriotism? He ended up committing suicide in the CO’s office.

I belatedly found Eng’s column “Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us”, http://news.asianweek.com/news/view_article.html?article_id=33bdb64c5b346a69bab3a2d448603596.


How many American films feature Asian heroes who are not stereotyped?

That’s a chimera, of course. The first part, “How many American films feature Asian heroes”, almost begs you to answer it. I’m not a big moviegoer, but I’d guess easily hundreds, and they aren’t all martial arts films either. The second part, “who are not stereotyped”, gives him a huge subjective loophole by which to disqualify every answer.

And America isn’t an asian country and there’s no reason we’re obligated to have many asian film heroes. So this is really a case of “they do X for blacks but not for asians.”

So are items #2 and #6.

Item #3 blames us for the actions of blacks and hispanics, so that’s a non-starter.

Item #5 is simply reprehensible on Eng’s part. He defends the Hmong who murdered the hunters and calls his action “righteous”.

That leaves only item #4. I do not know the particulars of the case, and I do not trust Eng to convey them accurately.

If it is a case of obvious murderers going free, of course it’s wrong. But I highly doubt they got off because they were white. That wasn’t even really the case during Jim Crow, and it’s certainly not the situation now.

Ok, I know I will rile a lot of people, but hear me out. In regard to the above article…so what? The author spoke his piece; if you don’t like it, turn the page. People are too easily offended these days.

Whatever happened to: I disagree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it? As a world, as a country, and as a people, it is getting to the point where there are no honest exchanges of debate or ideas anymore. As soon as one individual decides that something is ‘offensive’ to him, everyone must lose their right to speech. Nonsense!

Let the man’s article stand, it is not necessary to ‘pull’ the article from the site- if enough people are offended, they will not read him anymore, the paper will suffer, and the editor will act accordingly.

People, let’s get a grip on reality, there will always be someone, somewhere who will be offended by something in this world. Do you really want to lose your freedom of speech in favor of legislation for freedom of feelings from being hurt?

None of this compares to how bad Asians drive. Talk about “not getting it”, Asian driving skills are terrible. They can’t seem to grasp the concept of being part of a collective moving through traffic. They slamm their brakes on at the slightest hint of trouble without regard to other behind them. Sure their smart, BOOK SMART, but they cannot drive at a speed that allows traffic to roll smoothly. I had a guy I worked with, he had a Masters in Electrical Engineering but couldn’t figure out how to hook up jumper cables.

Posted by Mr Mann at 5:17 PM on March 1

I don’t care one way or the other about Eng’s column. He writes like your average college undergraduate. One thing I wholeheartedly agree with is his anger at the way whites make excuses for any depraved behavior on the part of blacks. Of course, he implicityly generalizes using ‘whites’ but everybody knows it is only white liberals and socialists who do that.

Posted by Civilized Neighbor at 5:55 PM on March 1

The point is not that the article was more viotriolic than anything you would see here. It isn’t. The immediate problem is that Mr. Eng is (a) wrong, (b) he used anecdotal evidence, © he made ad-hominem attacks, (d) he appears not to understand the difference between a “proof” and an “accusation,” and (e) his writing was atrocious. The more serious problems run deeper, however. We can only assume that Eng is desperately unhappy living in a country that is over 70% white, but the fact that his editor committed the equivalent of journalistic malpractice by allowing not one, but three of these pieces to be printed in a newspaper that makes pretensions to being mainstream is disturbing. Did this editor consider the opinions of Asian Week’s paying advertisers when he decided to run Eng’s columns?

I am not disputing Eng’s First Amendment right to write whatever he wants. I have already refuted - on a strictly factual basis - the thrust of his anti-white diatribe here and on Asian Week’s discussion board. What I am disputing is Eng’s sanity and his editor’s sense of responsibility. I also confess to being more than a little shocked that Eng, with his middle-school writing skills actually has two novels published.

Posted by Michael C. Scott at 6:16 PM on March 1

I’m sorry this is getting too far afield in reference to the original Eng article on Asian Week, but I just wanted to make one more comment tangential to this black-on-white/Asian crime issue (Black robs Hong Kong Chinese restaurant, posted above).

I hope I am recalling the following accurately as I missed part of the discussion on the TV program. Just tonight on Paula Zhan Now there was a segment on “Food Deserts”. Apparently there are stretches of black inner cities where you have plenty of fast food stores and liquor stores (catering to the taste of the local demographic), but no supermarkets where you can buy ‘fresh fruits’ and vegetables. The segment focused on a poor inner-city obese black mother of 5 (!) who did not own a car and who complained that she had to take the bus and travel an hour or more just to get “healthy groceries” for her kids. She thought this was quite unfair.

Her take was that government should subsidize supermarkets so more supermarkets would open up in the inner cities, and thus she would not need to travel as far. She said it boils down to a public health issue: it is the government’s responsibility to take care of the health of inner city people!

After the interview, there was a roundtable discussion with the “experts”. One (white) conservative commentator said, “but supermarkets have to make money, they go where the profits are.” One of the two black commentators on the show incredibly said, “but these people [ie. black inner city people] have money” echoing what the interviewee black mother also said. (!)

Of course, the issue shifted to race, as usual. “Look, there are many supermarkets in poor white neighborhoods! It is clearly a case of discrimination,” the black commentator replied.

The conservator commentator reiterated, “it’s not about black or white, it’s about green. These supermarkets have to make money. And crime drives out profits.”

It’s interesting how people didn’t jump on this. Maybe they could accuse this conservative commentator of ‘racism’ as he pointed out that crime could be a factor, implicitly suggesting that blacks commit more crime than whites? That would be heresy. Or perhaps the black commentators knew that crime rates of blacks are indeed much higher than whites’ and so they were effectively silenced.

There was more bickering as the black commentator accused the conservative, “how do you know that no profits are made if you don’t even try [opening up a store in the inner cities]”? The conservative replied, “yes, but they have been tried in Chicago, LA etc,” and so forth, and the discussion degenerated into unintelligible cacophony.

Take home point: inner-city blacks (at least as portrayed in the CNN story, inadvertently no doubt), once again, cannot rely on the free market, but instead lobby and clamor for more government subsidies and handouts, so they can improve their quality of life. And since inner-city people pay little taxes anyway, they are the net tax recipients and they live off the public purse. They don’t feed themselves; other people feed them.

But do not expect gratitude. As pointed out in the article “An Unthinkable Crime, Until Someone Finally Thought of It” by Michael Wilson, where a black savagely attacked/shot the Chinese family/worker, some hold up their own kitchen - and bite the hand that literally feeds.

From the article: “People are stupid. They always kill the ones that help them.”

In Chicago, Cub Foods was known for operating grocery supermarkets in African-American neighborhoods. Jewel and Cub got combined. Cub supermarkets has basically closed down in Chicago and they were KNOWN for attempting to operate profitably in the “tough” neighborhoods.

The problem with may of these “food deserts” is that blacks burned down many of the supermarkets in those areas during the riots of the late 1960s. Insurance costs keep them from moving back. Having employees shot during armed robberies keep them from moving back.

The small Arab- and Korean-owned grocery stores that replaced them are often held up, and the poor Koreans were burned out of parts of Los Angeles in the 1992 riots.

Blacks could fix the problem themselves instead of whining. They could form non-profit community co-ops. Such a co-op grocery store would sell enough groceries to buy at low prices, would employ local residents, and might attract other businesses to the area.

The problem is that it would be mercilessly shoplifted from, embezzled from, and some of the night shift would be found one morning with their brains blown across the linoleum floor after some crackhead robbed the place at gunpoint.

I was robbed at gunpoint by a black while working at a Subway restaurant in August 2004. He asked us whether we were hiring. I said we almost certainly would be, as some of the day shift would be heading off to school during the next few weeks. He asked whether there was a manager around. I said “No, but he’ll be here at lunchtime. I can get you an application. If you fill it out, and stick around, you can interview at noon. You’ll probably get hired.” Then he pulled out the stainless-steel derringer.

When my co-worker and I were marched back to the office at gunpoint, my cotton shirt felt very thin. I thought of all the work I had done fixing up my house, and how it was my co-worker’s last day at work before going off to college at BYU. I thought about how the muzzles of the derringer were dirty, which meant our robber had been shooting it, which meant he probably didn’t have .357” Mags loaded in a light gun like that with little grips. He probably only had .38” Specials. I started thinking about how I could make him use both .38’s on me.

We gave him half the money in the store, about $475 and he left us in the office. My poor co-worker was in tears. After I turned off the lights in the office and locked the door and moved her away from the door (so he couldn’t shoot us if he came back) I patted her back and told her “We made it. We’re OK.

The manager and the store owner showed up after the police called them. My co-worker and I were interviewed separately by the police. The cops got fingerprints off the stainless steel front counter. The fingerprint expert interviewed me and then she said, “This is where I would put my hands if I were going to climb over the counter.”

Presto, they had good prints, which I knew immediately meant that if the perp had ever been arrested for anything before or had been in the military, he was done like a dinner.

When my manager and the owner showed up, they said my face was still gray. The owner said “I’m scared just looking at you.”

The detective assigned to the case showed me pictures of black guys, and I identified the robber. I was later told that our robber had driven from Albequerque to Denver, robbing fast-food places both ways. We had him during the morning of his return trip. He’s doing seven years in New Mexico, and when he gets out, he’ll get at least ten in Colorado. The guy was only about 22. This is not a good way to reach 40!

I sent my ex-co-worker a nice card, and later told her the perp had gotten some serious time. She sent me a card back, saying “Worrying does not empty tomorrow of it’s troubles. It empties today of it’s strength.”

She was very pretty, and very Mormon. I’m an ex-con, on the Terrorist Watch List.

My manager, who used to race motorcycles later said, “I’m glad it was you and not me.”

This is why supermarkets do not open in black neighborhoods.

E Asian’s recollections of that news story are fairly accurate. My favorite black sound bite: “people have a right to expect things from the government.”

“On the other hand, we slaughtered the Russians in the Japanese-Russo War.”

Yes, but the Russians also slaughtered you. In fact, the Japanese, even though they won the war, largely thanks to their British trained and built navy and the 1905 Revolution breaking out just when the Russians were getting their main army to the Far East, actually suffered more killed and wounded in the war through the naive expedient of running at machine guns.

I would like to see some citations and facts to back up these statements that “all” Blacks hate “all” Asians, and that Whites will do whatever they can to defend Blacks. Does this writer claim to be experienced? If so, he has broken one of the primary requirements to determine credibility - to support ones statements with concrete data (not simply a few personal experiences from high school and college). The country and the world is much bigger than that. I wonder if all these people that are supporting and/or believing his narrow-minded rhetoric have ever traveled outside of their local areas and experienced people of different regional backgrounds. Ignorant, angry people exist in all races, as do open-minded liberals. In this day and age it is becoming increasingly more difficult to make general statements that apply to everyone in an entire race as one individual’s up-bringing and personal experiences can be vastly different from another and thus cause people of the same race to have completely different if not conflicting views on life.

I have heard the same from East Indian, Pakistani, Arab, Korean, Chinese, Armenian, Russian and Mexican store, restaurant and shop owners who have not ‘heard’ about opening a business in certain neighborhoods. They were surprised at how black people act and were not aware of their arrogance and ignorance.

The media does not warn them that certain neighborhoods are deadly and they are looking for the American Dream of having their own business, only to run into the American Nightmare of opening their businesses in black neighborhoods.

Because many white liberals live in mostly white neighborhoods with the conservatives they hate, or their own little enclaves, I don’t know of any white liberal brave enough to open a small store in a black neighborhood. I wish they would so they could see what would happen. But I suspect that deep down they know or they would move from their safe little neighorhoods and move to the ghetto. I mean to help solve the problem of intergration that they believe in…why are their mostly black neighborhoods? Why aren’t liberal whites moving in? I am sure the housing prices are lower.

Many Asian males I know, who are not Filipinos, think blacks are dangerous and ignorant. What they do is act “phony” and even attack whites in their speech when addressing blacks so that they will ‘calm down’ and not act out.

What I suspect is that Mr. Eng thought that if he attacked whites and Christians in his story he could soften the ‘blow’ of what he is saying is true…Many Asians don’t like blacks. Now many YOUNG Asians are fooled just like many young whites who think being black is cool. Being or acting “Cool” does not equate with intelligence or a higher income.
