Archived for Posterity: Kenneth Eng’s ‘Why I Hate Blacks’ Article

Just thought I’d archive some (more) ignorance:

This is a copy of the controversial opinion piece by Kenneth Eng in Asian Week magazine:

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.

Here’s some follow up on the situation: Asian paper’s ‘I Hate Blacks’ column assailed

Audio of New Orleans Mayor’s WWL Radio Interview

CNN has been playing snippets of an interview that New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin did last night on the radio. I’ve been trying to find the full audio online and oddly enough the BBC seems to be the only organization with the full audio posted (imagine that!). Nagin was dropping bombs in this interview… listen to it if you can. Here are some articles about the interview

Update: The MP3 is about 4 minutes longer than the BBC’s audio. I’ve uploaded the MP3 to my own server. Take a listen. (hat tip to Orbis Quintus for providing the MP3.)

White People Find, Black People Loot???

Speaking of media coverage of the hurricane and race, check out the captions on these photos that were just emailed to me.

Here are the actual links to the pictures:

Update: Yahoo! has posted this note about these pictures:

To Yahoo! News readers:

News photos are an especially popular section of Yahoo! News. In part, this is because we present thousands of news photos from some of the leading news services, including The Associated Press, Reuters, and Agence France Press. To make this volume of photos available in a timely manner, we present the photos and their captions as written, edited and distributed by the news services with no additional editing at Yahoo! News.

In recent days, a number of readers of Yahoo! News have commented on differences in the language in two Hurricane Katrina-related photo captions (from two news services). Since the controversy began, the supplier of one of the photos – AFP – has asked all its clients to remove the photo from their databases. Yahoo! News has complied with the AFP request.

Here are a few of the postings that have commented on the photo caption language:

Yahoo! News regrets that these photos and captions, viewed together, may have suggested a racial bias on our part. We remain committed to bringing our readers the full collection of photos as transmitted by our wire service partners.
