I read through some comments of wokeAZN on Reddit and I actually created a page where I began to collect his quotes. Of course, what he says many already know, but few will actually say, for obvious reasons. I think that yes, East Asian males really need to confront the reality and change certain flawed attitudes, and this is most easily done if the realities however unpleasant are laid bare before us.
Let me briefly list some of main points, far from inclusive.
- the American system set up for the interest of privileged whites
- Asian women making Asian men look like losers by marrying white men who give them a white voice on Asians via their media power
- the bamboo ceiling set up by whites to guard against highly intelligent, hardworking, and high achieving Asians
- big, dominant, assertive Asian men auto-triggering fragile white men on a regular basis
- physical inferiority of Asian males
- highly competent Asians ending up mostly working for white owners
- Asian parents training their kids to be passive hard workers for the white man who don’t complain or fight for themselves
- Asians not working out enough
- The Anglo world’s having pretty much conquered the East
All this is really quite obvious to me, but maybe it isn’t to a lot of people. There is also that Asian-Americans cannot win under the current system, and how much because of that the powerful Chinese in America are mostly from China.
So naturally, if Asians in America want to go beyond where they are right now, they should try to develop more connections with powerful people from their home countries. That means they should seek out Chinese VCs with connections to important people in Chinese companies.
Here, I’ll use Asian to mean East Asian. Indians will be excluded, because they are kind of white the dark skin notwithstanding by virtue of both their appearance, their culture, and their mannerisms, as well as the bamboo ceiling not really applying to them as much. Also noteworthy is that India has already been fully conquered by the Anglo world. In some sense, they’ve already lost, whereas East Asians still have hope of creating an independent entity competitive with what the West, whites have.
I’ll start with some essential historical context. First that the Japanese shattered much of the perception of inherent white, Western supremacy. It started with the Russo-Japanese War. (By the way, Russians were conquered by the Mongols in the 13rd century, so they’re not fully white. Still, Russians are pretty white, even if the Anglo-Saxons hardly identify with them.) Then, there was how during WWII, the Japanese defeated without much difficulty the British in Hong Kong and Singapore and demonstrated their ability against America too. Even though Japan eventually lost, it was much due to their small size along with their overextension. Clearly, they were extremely formidable in a combination of their technology and fighting prowess.
Back then, it was only the Japanese who could be considered honorary whites in this sense. The Chinese were extremely backwards and weak and suffered much from Japan for this reason, and the Koreans were colonized by Japan for over 30 years. There was obviously a penalty against Japan by the white, Western powers who were too proud to treat Japan as an equal. After Japan defeated China militarily in 1895, the Western powers only felt more entitled to extract more out of China, the indignity of which culminated in the Boxer Rebellion.
To everybody’s great surprise, China stood up not long after the Japanese invaders surrendered and left. Remember how on the declaration of founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1st 1949, Mao Zedong in front of Tiananmen Square said, “the Chinese people have stood up.” People in China who view history honestly will sort of laugh at it. Chinese back then were incompetent weaklings, so one Chinese army evicting another doesn’t really prove much. It was during the Korean War when China really stood up. It managed to do what the Japanese couldn’t, which was to defeat white, Western countries in a war. Of course, the Chinese fought using relatively primitive means, with minimal use of air force, but even so, they kicked the US led UN Army out of North Korea and maintained that position for almost 3 years, eventually pressuring the US to sign an armistice acknowledging its inability to defeat the Chinese army. I heard somewhere that after that, the Japanese would no longer refer to Chinese using the derogatory 支那.
Because of that, China could not trade with the United States and found it very difficult to trade with other Western countries. Until, China developed nuclear missiles among other things, finally forcing America to give up again.
Among ethnic Chinese who dislike the PRC, some of whom will say 反共不反华 (anti-communist but not anti-Chinese), from the historical context, they are best perceived as Chinese who are anti-Chinese in a half-closeted way. They will point to all the failures under Mao and the poverty in mainland China relative to the other East Asian countries under American patronage, but the reality is evidently that it was the Chinese communists who won the highest international position and power among Asians. Moreover, they did so in a very sustainable way, unlike Japan, which took it too far and eventually lost, losing all hope of becoming a world military power under the post WWII arrangement. Of course, Japan did scare America a bit with its cars and electronics. Their science and Nobel Prizes too, except that can’t change its status as an American, white vassal state. I guess once China becomes powerful enough, Japan may dump America and shift towards China, but that’s still a fair ways away.
So Asians indignant about the status of the group in America and internationally can best advance it by supporting China. Swallow the pride and sense of superiority inculcated under colonialism, it’s pathetic. The fact that America can get Chinese in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and in the West to feel superior to and even utterly contemptuous their counterparts in mainland China is a sign of their surrender and lack of self-confidence. If you support America, you’ll be mostly viewed by white American elites as a useful tool to keep down their most threatening competitor. On the other hand, if you support China enough, China will eventually treat you as one of their own.
There are already very few Chinese in America rising to a position of power by virtue of the bamboo ceiling. Even if you do, you are there as a minority, and so you have much less power than a white guy in the same official position. You defeat a system by boycotting it not by hard struggle within its rigged game.
The American media and culture loves to degrade the self-confidence and self-respect of Asian men. Well, you can do what you can to ignore it. Instead, immerse yourself in some Chinese communist culture and promote it to your other Asian friends as well. For sure, that’s much better for a masculine Asian identity than what America has to offer. Learn the Chinese language well enough and develop some connections in and from China for a chance of making some career there. For as long as you’re stuck in America, do what you need to do to make a living that doesn’t harm the group interest much and outside that, maybe try to connect with some other like minded Asians to start an independent enterprise. You can also try to influence the American media, culture, and politics to your favor, and maybe try to gain more stakes in power institutions such as Hollywood too. Don’t expect too much there though, as America is a country run by whites with a white majority. In any case, if Asians as a group want to win under the current system in America, they’ll almost certainly have to gang up with money and power from China. Remember that unless you immigrated after age 18, you ended up here not by choice. So you have every right to choose not to identify with America as part of a politically marginalized minority group too different to truly assimilate. You need not let the American media and education cage your mind, and you don’t have to give a damn about what the white majority thinks as long as you can get by. Instead, feel lucky to be of the same blood as a rising superpower who you and your posterity can truly be part of and do all you can to take advantage of and contribute to it in return.
