Nov 30

Why is it that the liberal media and Hollywood continually emasculate Asian men while glorifying black men?

    I like how in movies computer hackers are much more often black than asian. Well done Hollywood, well done.

      How is the truth racist? Just like there are very few Asian super athletes.
      Nov 30
    • I’ve never seen a movie where the hacker was black. The hackers usually a nerdy white guy/nerdy Indian or Asian guy.

      On non big budget shows maybe you get a few nerdy black guys

    • It’s kinda racist because your basically saying there really aren’t any black stem geniuses. Or Asian super athletes which isn’t true. YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW ABOUT THEM, but it doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

      Take Jeremy Lin for example, he led his high school basketball team to a state title beating out royalty. He didn’t even get a serious call from powerhouse schools. He led Harvard into the NCAA tournament, had solid stats and was passed up by just about every team. Gets signed, moved around, gets a chance to play and bam. Linsanity.
      There are tons of Lins out there but it seems like everyone is on the lookout for the next Yao Ming, freakishly tall Asian basketball player. Throw in a bit of racism, bias, stereotypes and great or would be great Asian players are passed up for scrubs who aren’t Asian.

      We can talk about black people in stem directly (there are a lot of black people in STEM, maybe you haven’t seen them, come to the East Coast. Maybe New York, DC, Atlanta) or indirectly (a lot of systematic pitfalls for people in certain neighborhoods and of color).

      I did not say that they don't exist. Merely that few of them exist relative to their share of the U.S. population. What % of STEM graduates of top schools are black? It's a lot lower than that of Asians, although there are more than twice as many as blacks as Asians in this country.
      Nov 30
    • Why are you only looking at top schools (I’m assuming he top 10 schools). There are over 2000 colleges and universities in the US. That’s a far cry from being representative.

      There are actually studies that show a lot of heads of these sports programs are pushing for black people because they find they are more “entertaining” to watch than other races in very violent sports. In this case entertaining means that they liken it to dog fights or similar things. More often Asians and other races are glanced over in being recruited for these sports.

      I really doubt you will but read this article and look for more. I feel like your and many other people’s ignorance is simply because you never actually have to openly express your opinions and don’t let others point out the obvious flaws and lack of knowledge that you have about the subject. https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2017/09/25/25432524/why-the-over-representation-of-black-americans-in-professional-sports-is-not-a-good-thing

      I don’t think liberals or conservatives either have the whole answer but I do think educating yourself on all sides is a way to come closer towards a better solution.

      White liberals stoke blacks' racial resentment, don't hold them responsible for their actions, and shower them with government handouts. But they look down on them, seeing them as children and sources of entertainment.

    How it matters ? Be alpha in real life and be solid. Indian here and successful at most . Why not try to be better at it . Don’t care about media

      Dumb. You probably are the top 1% of the Indians (just by virtue of being at Google)

      Persecution is about an average or a median human and his rights.

      If you are a median White guy, things are easy, not so much for the remaining median people.

      Social justices aren’t about inclusion of most good people from others.

      It isn’t about boasting about your genetic lottery win.

    It's because they think Asian men are a joke. Simple. Seems like the Asian men ignore that part of the media and they focus on their career and providing for their family. all that matters.

      I dont see the media glorifying black men. I see the media doing the exact opposite. can you be more specific on how the media is glorifying black men?

    Perhaps you should define your ideal state as opposed to relying on a limited comparison to another group.

    Because high IQ Asians are a threat and black men are obediant gladiators to the ruling elite. Divide and conquer, power redistribution is how you remain at the top.
    Nov 303
    • OP
      Great point. Elite liberal whites see Asian men as a threat while they coddle blacks like babies and see them as entertainment.

    • Capital One / Engdesu
      In his viewpoint, the conservatives aren't so "loving" because they see blacks as equals -- adults that are responsible for their own actions and shouldn't have their hand held through life

      It’s too long so no. Not interested in Indian and European settlers. Nothing from 200 years ago applies to how people are today. Europeans 200 years ago where worse than ISIS. Rest of the world was probably even more barbaric. In India they used to burry the wife when the husband dies.

      This leaves no ground for fair comparison.

    White men like Asian women, Mexican and South American women and Eastern European women .....they make them look good instead of bland and pasty

  • The media denigrates black people in general so I have absolutely no idea where your coming from other than very specific black men who are athletes. Americans view muscle and masculinity the same, Asian culture doesn’t really emphasize some of what people here view as attractive.

    Americans- save my wife vs my mom
    Asian culture- save mom, you can find a new wife

    American - me over family
    Asian - family over individual

    I’m generalizing a bit but you get the point. Your more likely in America to see a jacked black guy than an Asian guy. A lot of black guys workout and play physically demanding sports. Women in America like muscles so of course you’ll see it highlighted.

      I think the main male actor is actually half white. Not really sure if Crazy Rich Asians really says anything positive about Asian males. Just seemed like a pretty ordinary rom com that kinda reinforced some stereotypes like Asian woman are demanding tiger moms who are really materialistic.
