Hello, and welcome to yet another scintillating edition of YOU’RE NOT HELPING; the editorial where we track and make fun of the latest Anti-Black idiocy.
Today’s item contains an Asian Nail Salon fight in Brooklyn. The rather distressing footage on YouTube shows an Asian woman doing her best pole-fighting wu xia type impression as she belabors a black woman about the head and neck and body ruthlessly, as if she were driving back a recalcitrant steer.
You won’t get this sort of Discourse down at Bossip, Madame Noire, or MediaTakeOut.
Even our venerable comrades at TheRoot have yet to consider the implications of this display, which is upsetting since they are the most profligate and forward of all the sites named here, but I digress.
Asian-Americans in general have always been hostile towards Black people. They wear their aggression on their sleeves proudly. They avoid associating with Black folks, they gleefully side with White supremacists at the drop of a pin, and they do so while masquerading as po’ faced, oppressed minorities, which is utterly infuriating.
This mercenary-like attitude of the Asian American people to play both sides of the Black/White divide skilfully is very dangerous to Black people, I feel.
This is an old story. Decades ago, the Korean-Americans were gunning down Black people wholesale.
White people patted them on the back and called them Roof Koreans. They were lauded as the solution (heh) to the Black Question.
MadameNoire, Bossip, Naptural Roots, and The Root have yet to address this, which is why you can come to us for this sort of sizzling hot take, but I think we can gather from this that Asian people are definitely not going to side with us in the Race War(™).
The Race War(™) has been going on since the dawn of mankind, by the way, just in varying intensities. People speak of it as though it were myth or legend, when in fact it has always been here, but that’s a tale for another day.
Incidents like these prove that Asian people have already been accepted into the White Supremacist Hegemon-Kingdom.
One wonders why this was ever questioned. Ol’ Uncle Adolf called the Japanese ‘Honorary Aryans’.
Asian support and succor for Black people has been precious few. They love to wax poetical about that one time a few Asians joined with the Panthers, or the time Malcolm X boinked a Japanese woman (Yuri Kochiyama), in hopes of deflecting the Discourse on Asian anti-blackness and support for White Supremacy.
Model Minority, my saggy black left buttock.
Asian people, you are definitely not helping, sorry.
Consider this my formal directive to Asian people: DO BETTER, or permanently forfeit your right to call yourselves oppressed victims of white supremacy.
Not enough is being spoken about the intersectionality of Asian aggression used as a weapon by white supremacist power structures.
It would behoove our comrades at The Root to take action.
We should also, if I may suggest, interrogate the Asian actors in our social justice circles as to what, if any, effect they have had on rooting out antiblackness in their own circles.
How many Korean women must shoot dead little black girls and beat them with broomsticks until we recognize this issue?
