People of Color, Minus AsiansJim Goad
Intersectionality is ultimately unsustainable, which is why I love it when non-whites inevitably wind up clawing out one another’s eyes: It proves that the culprit isn’t “white racism,” it’s “the existence of more than one race in the same place.”
Boston recently elected a Chinky Chinky China Lady as its mayor, ending 199 uninterrupted years of white-dude rule.
Rather than sadistically celebrating the overthrow of Beantown’s white-male patriarchy, NPR instead ran a story spotlighting their “disappointment” over the fact that the city’s new mayor was not a Negro.
In a tweet that was quickly deleted, NPR wrote:
Michelle Wu, an Asian American, is the first woman and first person of color elected to lead the city. While many are hailing it as a turning point, others see it as more of a disappointment that the three Black [sic] candidates couldn’t even come close.
NPR reworked the article without changing its main thrust, but a search for the original article’s title — “Cheers and some letdown as 1st elected woman and person of color becomes Boston Mayor” – led to an apparent replication of the original piece by a certain “Prince Abraham,” who I’m assuming purposely mangled some of the original text to avoid plagiarism charges, with hilarious results. Prince Abraham — I swear I looked for a picture — wrote the following, which I’m reprinting without one keystroke altered:
For the primary time in its historical past, Boston is inaugurating a newly-elected mayor on Tuesday who is just not a white man. Michelle Wu — who’s Asian American, is the primary lady and first particular person of coloration elected to guide the town. While many are hailing it as a significant turning level, others see it as extra of a disappointment that the three Black candidates within the race could not even come shut. . . .
“I mean the data speaks for itself, and it’s troubling,” says former Massachusetts State Rep. Marie St. Fleur. Especially, she says, for a metropolis nonetheless straining beneath a longtime fame as racist.
“For those of us born or raised in Boston, and who lived through some of the darker days, the fact that we blinked at this moment is sadness,” she says. “At what point in the city of Boston will we be able to vote — and I’m going to be very clear here — for a Black person in that corner office?” . . .
But others bristle on the thought of anticipating any Black candidate to drop out of a race as a result of there are too lots of them.
One could make a case that there are always too lots of black people.
Boston’s new mayor was born in Chicago, not Boston, and her parents were born in Taiwan. Mandarin Chinese, not English, is her first language.
Mentored by Elizabeth Warren, Michelle Wu is considered a political progressive. She ran on some vague mishmash of supporting trannies, keeping the wetlands wet, preventing the climate from changing, outlawing plastic bags, “demilitarizing” the police, and requiring a vaccine passport to eat at Boston dining establishments.
Sure, but she’s not black. She may be able to atone for this by becoming a virulently anti-white dragon lady in the mold of Suey Park, Sarah Jeong, or June Chu.
Wu defeated her opponent, Annissa Essaibi George, by a margin of 28 points. George’s father was Tunisian and her mother was Polish, but she played up the whole “Arab” angle while campaigning.
The two non-black Women of Color squared off after a September runoff election in which they bested a black guy, a black woman, and another black woman, the latter of whom had served as Boston’s interim mayor since March, when Marty Walsh, the Last of the White Male Mayors, shuffled off to DC to become Joe Biden’s Secretary of Labor.
In 1940, Boston was 96.6% white. As of 2017, it is only 43.9% white. Then again, Asians are only 9.7% of the city’s residents, and if you merely count the Chinky Chinky Chinese, Wu represents only 3.9% of Bostonians.
Still, SHE’S NOT BLACK.
Last year, Boston school officials howled that the students at their STEM schools were “too white and too Asian and they’re both meeting or exceeding expectations at higher rates” than the hapless and curiously oppressed blacks and Hispanics.
Since Asians outperform blacks and Hispanics — and whites — in standardized tests and in terms of household income, and since they underperform all of these groups when it comes to committing crime, they completely fuck up the narrative that we live in a white-supremacist country that accords whites unfair and unearned privileges.
When it comes to having a bachelor’s degree or higher in America, you have to sift through six Asian groups before you get to Jews, then step over Iranians before you get to British immigrants, and then five more Asian groups until you stub your toe upon Armenians, at which point you finally arrive at the “European/white” category in whose favor all of our institutions are supposedly slanted.
Averaging over $150K per annum in household income, Orthodox Jews make more money than any other group in America. Then, starting with Indians, you have to pass through five Asian groups before you get to British immigrants, and then another five Asian cohorts before you finally arrive at the lowly white-supremacist European/whites, who average slightly under $60K a year per household.
At just under 6% of the United States’ population in 2019, Asians only account for about 2% of arrests. They also represent a mere 2% of victims of fatal shootings by all those white-supremacist cops.
If you actually believe “anti-Semitism” can be defined, whites and Asians harbor similar levels of Jew-hatred: namely, only about one-third of the “deeply entrenched anti-Semitic views” that throb within the poisoned hearts of blacks and Latinos.
On the math section of the SATs, Asians are 60 times more likely than blacks to score 750 or higher. Asians, who comprise about 6% of the US population, account for about 60% of those who score 750 or higher on the math SAT. As of 2018, Asians averaged 100 points higher than whites on the SAT, who averaged 133 points higher than Hispanics, who averaged 44 points higher than blacks. Such galloping disparities have led to clumsy efforts to artificially “level” — i.e., tilt — the playing field to the point where Asians have to score about 450 points higher on the SATs than blacks to receive equal admissions consideration at Harvard. This has become known as the “Asian tax.”
Rather than simply admit that innate intelligence may be correlated with higher Asian test scores and higher household income, the Department of Education recently claimed that Asians “benefit from white supremacy . . . [and] proximity to white privilege.”
But since Asians are so adept at upending the whole American Gospel of “whites are keeping everyone else down,” the University of Maryland recently reshuffled the progressive stack so that it pits “white or Asian students” against “Students of Color, minus Asian.”
Despite a long history of anti-Asian persecution in America — things such as the Chinese Exclusion Act and the internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War — the Asians have managed to get it together with far greater success than blacks and Hispanics.
When I interviewed the Houston-based black rapper Scarface sometime around 1989, he lamented to me that the US was unfairly allowing Asians to open up businesses in the ’hood while preventing blacks from doing so. He blamed the government rather than private lenders who may have, with good reason, seen Asians as a safer financial bet than young black criminals who rhyme about murdering other young black criminals. A few years later, the LA-based rapper Ice Cube highlighted such simmering black-Asian tensions in his song “Black Korea,” which he reputedly based on the shooting of a black girl named Latasha Harlins by a 51-year-old Korean shop owner. During the Los Angeles riots of the following year, Korean store owners famously defended their property by standing on rooftops and wielding rifles.
In 2010, there was a spate of anti-Asian attacks by black teens in New York and California.
In 2021, by labeling a virus that came from China as the “China virus,” Donald Trump dog-whistled at black Americans to publicly beat Asians again and again and again and again and again and again and again.
Being labeled the “model minority,” a term which has floated around since the mid-1960s, is flattering. It also has its drawbacks. As if endless beatings in the street weren’t bad enough, Asians now risk being recategorized as white.

The Worst Week Yet: May 7-13, 2023
I saw it coming a few years back. The System is starting to turn on them.
Nah I won’t shed any tears for their kind.Asians have jumped on the anti-White bandwagon just like every other non-White group.
I see your twice and raise you a thrice.
They’ll get no sympathy from me.
Nietzsche was right about ressentiment.
Finally someone who understands….many Asians hate white people. Yet time and time again i am noticing writers trying semi pandering towards Asians. Probably the same guys talking ”white nationalism” but have a Asian mail order bride at home.
The “anti-white” sentiment slowly but surely morphs into an “anti-capable” and “anti-gifted” sentiment. Eventually the same hostility can be repurposed to target any race or group that’s capable of keeping an orderly civilization running, in favor of the racial wilderness of a 70 IQ society that can be easily controlled and manipulated by our ((overlords)).
Good point. But the question remains: at what point this trend will turn against the (((Overlords)))?
It’s actually harder to manipulate stupid people. You can rile them up to do stuff they’d want to do anyway (rape, murder, cannibalism), but you really can’t direct them very well. They’re just too stupid to be useful. You need people who believe what they’re told, not people who believe what they feel. To believe what you’re told, you need to be seduced by abstraction and appeals to authority (which, subtly, includes oneself).
Subject aside – what a great writer is Jim Goad! I am consistently impressed with his writing style and his humor. I consider him a modern-day “Mark Twain.”
I agree. Jim is extremely funny, witty and insightful. Comparing him to Mark Twain is quite appropriate. I think Jim has to do a lot more great writing to be compared to Tom Wolfe, however.
Two limitless fonts of inspiration for the right… Asian supremacy and NPR. While there are plenty of vocal, annoying leftist Asians, it’s not wise to assume that applies to all. Like anyone else, they are motivated by self interest. They work hard, follow self-discipline and be sure they get pissed if passed over by some leftist quota. The vocal Asian leftist is usually a feminist who is charting a different course after not living up to what her siblings accomplished in STEM fields. In summary, it is one of the beacons of hope that they have to share in this grief. We rely on the last vestiges of media to correctly report on who is beating them up and not blame it on white supremacy or Trump.
And while NPR once was slightly left but at least earnest and striving to be accurate, that is a lost memory. What few non-effeminate white males remaining on the network are only allowed to speak to condemn vestiges of Trumpism, QAnon or other wackadoodles, exceptions allowed for praise of women or immigrants.
I knew about “fake news” way before the term was coined. During the war in the ex-Yugoslavia, the NPR led the way (along with the CNN) in the misleading and deliberately slanted reporting: see “Media Cleansing dirty reporting Journalism and death of Yugoslavia” by Peter Brock. If you substitute the “Serbs” with “Whites” you will find identical language and descriptions – many of the same media characters too. I suppose today, the MSM is overseeing the slow death of the U.S. too. With glee.
Asians don’t have diversity quotas in their own countries. They come to the west to exploit the situation and proceed to complain when the same ideology that has allowed them to immigrate en masse has drawbacks. They deserve exactly what they get when they come here whether that be being passed over for a job or college. They would never allow whites into their countries like we have let them into ours. They are the most hypocritical people and well aware of how their anti-majority rhetoric would go over in their homelands. I have absolutely no sympathy.
You can say the same thing with Nigerian Americans they work hard, very driven, very smart, perform better then Asian Americans as collective. Doesn’t mean Asians are our friends now because a few are not ”leftist”. East Asians see them self as superior to Western whites and play us on daily basis. Even the many ugly and unattractive East Asian females dating white men play the ”hypergamy game” and know many white men are a bunch of simps ready to everything for their ricefemales. My interactions with Americans makes me really come to the conclusion many of you guys are very naive of the real world around you. Asian Americans are not the face of all Asians around the world. Nor are Black Americans the face of all blacks around the world. There are millions of anti-white Asians ready to undermine the West from within they play the ”long term” game. While we are here focussing on ”muslims” etc. The Chinese, Japanese, Koreans etc are all in the same game to beat the west. China is strategically using its women to lure white men into simpdom and give many vital info after a late night love making.
Ah, the old ‘left moving the goalpost trick’. … From my college Diversity Office.
“We support and celebrate underrepresented cultures and events to enhance college life on campus through educational and social experiences such as, Black History Month, WomenDiversity Programming- We encourage participation in programs to raise awareness and build a community of respect as it pertains to diversity, such as the Interracial Dialogue Series and cultural trips”.
Unless you are White, then you can just eat shit cracker.
Talk about a wicked pissah. Too lots of jerkweeds is more like it.
Given Asians are so successful, I would say our institutions are slanted in their favor.
Apropos of nothing: two doors down a Samuel Jackson lookalike moved in last week. I mention this to my backyard neighbor with a tone of dread.
Karen replies: Sam Jackson is a great guy, what are you so worried about?
Me: you dumb broad, Sam Jackson didn’t move in. A guy who looks like him did. If a celebrity like Jackson moves in, your hood is trending upward. But if a brother who looks like Sam Jackson, but who is not Sam Jackson, moves in, time to call a realtor.
I am not a racist but I also recently noticed a brother a few doors down the street and I have already called the realtor (not kidding).
If you unironically still use the word “racist” then you’re a jew puppet that can be manipulated by their mind games.
I don’t allow sectarian squabbles over mere terminology here. Grow up.
I’m just saying that it’s healthier to stop using their terminology and word games.
@TexasChainsaw I see the same thing everyday. A once close knit neighborhood for over a century has had block parties replaced with hijabs and Indians. They have started to rent to blacks and the first wave of scuffles and police cars has become a regular. If you talk to one of the old timers, the daughters and granddaughters of the original owners you will be scolded for noticing that the once beautiful German and Irish neighborhood is turning into a dump.
The homes still look mostly nice but you know the tailspin of collapse has started. No one wants to face that so they just keep buying things and deal with not knowing who the majority neighbors are or even what they are because nobody speaks to anyone anymore. The block parties are now as foreign an idea as the new residents
Dutch, I see it happening everywhere. There is a park nearby with a pond where we picnicked a couple of times 7-8 years ago. Full of Muslim immigrants. One of our party commented on what he saw as multiculturalism and nodded approvingly while muttering platitudes like ‘diversity. this is great ‘. Having got into other political tiffs with him in previous get togethers, I decided not to ruin the afternoon by starting an argument and asking ‘what’s so great about this?’ Or even ‘ what’s so diverse about this?’ There was pretty much only the Muslim families and a smattering of whites.
One thing I noticed was the park cops doing their rounds on bikes and pretty agressively making sure no booze was being consumed in the park. I realized only later that this enforcement was to protect the new citizens’ sensibilities.
One good thing about the coof, these liberal so-called friends (I say so-called cause we’d see each other maybe 2-3 times per year max) have all vanished from our lives.
Mr Goad, I just listened to the podcast you did with Nick Jeelvy a few days ago. Interesting. Funny to hear you mention Rudy Ray Moore, a seminal figure in the rap movement. Idiots like Snoop Dogg wank themselves into a cock-froth over him and his inspirational and influential artistic legacy.
The funny thing, never addressed directly in the excellent Moore biopic, Dolemite Is My Name, is that Moore was gay. If you watch his movies, the homo subtexts are always there, sometimes quite blatantly. It tickles me pink to think that the roots of shitty gangsta rap come from a closeted gay black man, and that his entire act was basically over-compensation for his sexuality. Presents all the cock size comparisons in rap in quite a different light, eh? Macho, macho man, I wanna be a macho man, as the extremely masculine Village People put it. 🙂
The Portuguese trading in the Indian Ocean decades after the departure of the final Ming Treasure Fleet were mistaken for Chinese initially. Paler-skinned North Eurasians with their settled societies and clever technology are never going to be popular with the more orc-like elements of the sub-saharan diaspora, and no amount of Critical Race Theory is going to fix that.
On cold Windy City nights like this I will mix a stiff martini (3 parts Old Tom gin, 1 part Dolin vermouth, 3 dashes of orange bitters) and scan Goad’s prose for the proverbial golden nugget. Tonight was no let down. Das leben ist gut.
Semi-related: I went back to graduate school in 2019. My current professor is an Asian American woman and “racial justice” educator. Before each class she reads her land acknowledgement with horny zeal, and seems to get off on the following turn of phrase, in particular: “…that European colonizers stole..”
(By the way, Lake Shore Drive here has been recently renamed after a Black “explorer,” Jean Baptiste du Sable. Would she approve of grand theft mulatto? Prolly.)
What’s funny though is when she subsequently lists, in reverential tones, the no less than 15 tribes who lived here, the irony seems to be lost on her. At least she acknowledges that she is “perpetuating violence” by holding class on native lands. Such tasteless chutzpah of a first-gen immigrant from the effing Phillipines turns my stomach, and that’s not the 94-proof gin talking.
Is a “land acknowledgment” liturgy a new thing in the religion of Woke? I imagine that having one’s ancestors and national or collegiate founders ritually anathematised every class out pure anti-white spite could become rather provoking. Which, presumably is the intention?
“…ending 199 uninterrupted years of white-dude rule.”
It may have ended this year, but we will have another 200 years again.
Why aren’t White Women having White Babies in large numbers?
Because they start too late. If you wait until your 30s to have kids, the chances of pregnancy diminish.
I literally do not know any living mothers who had their children before their 30s. I oppose feminism on social happiness as well as racial grounds, so I’m not saying women should wait to have kids. Many mothers I know (wives of friends) actually had their children in their late 30s; a couple in their 40s.
Your perception of Asians is very screwed and not even based on the astute reality. I have studied Asian communities extensively here in the US and UK/Europe. And they are they are not oh so wonderful model minority propaganda façade. Asian American communities in the US are very broad and the many of them underperform or just perform on average/normal level. Many like the Cambodians, Vietnamese, Thai, Filipinos, Indonesians, Malaysians etc. You make it seem as if Asian Americans are some monolith successful group compared to others.
During my stay in the US I met many Nigerian Americans and they outperform Asian groups by far and large and yet they are black. The Chinese sent many of their cheating under “table paid so called high performing” students to the US. Here in the UK, Nigerians would fall under the scope of the so called ‘’successful Asian Americans’’same with the Indians etc. Yet when you dive deeper it more so the Japanese and Koreans and to a lesser extend the major anti-white Chinaman in the US that are succesful depending on their socio-economic background. I hope you do know many Asians hate white westerners and have discussed the multiple attacks of whites against Asians as incentive to underimine the West. I personally don’t care about all this ‘’black American – Asian immigrant’’ narratives can we focus on the yellow peril and the fact many Chinese and Asians are using economic tools and political tools to under the white western world.
“I hope you do know many Asians hate white westerners”
Someone didn’t read the three “dragon lady” links before spouting off.
Otherwise, the rest of what you said is essentially, “Not all blacks are great NBA players—pygmies, for example.” It points to exceptions in an attempt to deflect attention from an undeniably solid statistical pattern. If Asians are only sending their best, it still doesn’t explain how, among 20 or so million Asians in America, they still outnumber 200 million or so whites in people who score over 750 in Math on the SAT by about a 6-1 margin.
That reason is easily explained, a statistic i learned about Indians which i thought were extremely smart on average turns out to be completely untrue and actually the reverse, the average Indian IQ in the country of India is 72 – 78, there was some study i read a long time ago that an average Indian who immigrates to the west which included UK and US has a +2.78 STD deviation from the mean in terms of IQ, i did the math and the zscore equals 99.7282% percentile of the best people in India, so you are comparing all the US against the top 0.27% of India in IQ terms, not the top 5% not the top 2% not even top 0.5%, thus it is an unfair comparison. I believe it should be similar regarding all the other ethnicities who migrate legally from over the oceans atleast, not from the landlocked countries (continents). Please tell me the average score of the top 0.5% of pure white american, and their average income or assets, i bet their assets are over one million USD. Thus this fails the equivalency check, also Asians are good at memorizing and doing SAT brain dumps also copying and cheating, but they dont usually have a grasp on the concepts all the time and its difficult for them to implement theory in real life settings on average.
Michelle Wu, Suey Park, Sarah Jeong, or June Chu…, when it comes to the category of “virulently anti-White dragon lady” of ethnic minorities in America, one can’t help but wonder why it contains ethnic Chinese and Korean surnames galore. Belonging to the same East Asian sub-racial group and being largely of similar liberal progressive streak ideologically notwithstanding, the Japanese-Americans in comparison are decidedly less “virulent” and clamorous, and much more modest, prudent and rational. Perhaps this discrepancy speaks considerably about the differences in degree of civilization and ethnic traits of the Japanese vis-a-vis the Chinese and Korean.
