Thanks for this article.
What often is not mentioned is the way in which the white majority uses Asians as a pawn, fulfilling the tactical dictates of white supremacy. Whenever white people require a methodology for keeping black people down, they find a way to do it. Often, they use nonblack nonwhite peoples to do so.
Asians are used as a cudgel by white people, as a group, to shame black people into thinking they aren’t doing enough to succeed. Hopefully, all nonblack POC (NBPOC) can see through this everlasting, 400 year campaign of bulls*** by now. The white majority picks up the NBPOC baton of ‘Asian,’ then bashes BPOC on the head with it by saying ‘this is what you could do if you worked hard enough,’ all the while distracting from the fact that, as a group, whites are doing the least amount of work for the most amount of reward, and always have.
Who really isn’t working? Who really is coasting on a 400 year freebie of whiteness? AND WHY IS THIS GROUP SO HELL-BENT ON MAINTAINING THEIR OWN ‘IGNORANCE’?!
Distracting with Asian decoys isn’t going to work forever, because we also think of ourselves as people, regardless of what white people think of us.
Why is the group behavior so disparate from the stated behavior of these individuals???
