Lordy, lordy, lordy . . . .
// microagressions of white supremacy . . . . \\
Further adventures in Identity Politics from the Race Industry . . . ho, hum.
Best line I recently heard on NPR: You can tell a white supremacist because they are anti-jihad.
There's this tremendous population-sized country, which has been the recipient of endless offshored jobs, technology and investment, and besides massive human rights abuses, their emperor recently offered an $86,000 reward to turn in their fellow citizens when they view pornography.
In Washington state, our very first Chinese-American governor was responsible for offshoring state agency jobs [at 49 out of 53 state agencies], insourcing ex-convicts via the Interstate Compact on Adult Offenders, is presently an evangelist to promote Chinese/Chicom corporations to open facilities in Washington state, thereby acting as a union killer; and is a partner in the law firm in Seattle which advertises to hide the identities of foreign money laundering investors in the local real estate market.

Dear god. As someone who is racialized as Asian -- an emphatic "NO" to appropriating the language and work of Black organizers, to de-center Black liberation. The author (and fellow Asians who care about Black lives and being in actual solidarity) should be truly embarrassed for publishing a book with this title. And that's just the title.

Here's is a man who favorably profiled Jordan Peterson (known misogynist/climate change skeptic/vegetable renouncer), complaining that our "honorary whiteness" doesn't allow us to cash in on all the white privilege. Truly gross.
