New York Assemblywoman Grace Meng has come under attack by Republican City Councilman and Congressional candidate Dan Halloran, who ahs accused her of having dual citizenship, which she does not, and being “sympathetic to China.”

Halloran vs. Meng is getting nasty.

Republican City Councilman and Congressional candidate Dan Halloran – fresh off a politically-charged visit to Israel – is blasting his Democratic opponent Grace Meng for running a campaign of “ethnocentrism” based on her Chinese roots.

Meng “has been sympathetic to the Chinese, and she’s touted her strong Chinese history as being the reason she’s the appropriate candidate to represent the Chinese people in New York,” Halloran said an interview with The Times of Israel.

Halloran described himself as a candidate who reaches out to all ethnic groups and called the Queens-born Meng a “Chinese National” in the interview and suggested she has dual citizenship.

Meng, in fact, does not have dual citizenship.

“China is the biggest obstacle to Israel in the United Nations,” he said.

Meng’s camp shot back, saying Halloran is employing the same anti-Asian tactics he used in his 2009 City Council race against Democratic candidate Kevin Kim.

“True to form, Dan Halloran has abandoned the issues in favor of a campaign rooted in bigotry, fear and lies – a desperate approach for a Tea Party Republican who cannot otherwise win on the issues,” said Meng campaign spokesman Austin Finan.

“The xenophobic undertones and outright racism found in Mr. Halloran’s words is appalling and offensive – not only to Grace Meng, but to her diverse group of tens of thousands of supporters who reside in every corner of the district,” he said.

Israel has been a key issue in the battle for retiring U.S Rep. Gary Ackerman’s seat in the redrawn Sixth Congressional district.

While the sprawling district – which reached from Bayside to Maspeth – has a large Asian population, it also includes a key Jewish population in Forest Hills and Kew Gardens Hills.

Halloran spokesman Steven Stites fired back that Meng’s “faux outrage is utterly hypocritical.”

While he refused to comment specifically about Halloran’s statements in the piece, Stites accused Meng’s campaign of using “racially divisive tactics” and recruiting a Jewish candidate to divide the Jewish vote in the primary.

Meng’s campaign has denied those charges.




Of GOP Councilman Dan Halloran’s accusations, Meng’s spokesman says, “True to form, Dan Halloran has abandoned the issues in favor of a campaign rooted in bigotry, fear and lies.”

a scientific study proved western, Anglo-American pop music all sound the same

note:  I am currently under 35


link to the scientific study

(Reuters) – Comforting news for anyone over the age of 35, scientists have worked out that modern pop music really is louder and does all sound the same.

Researchers in Spain used a huge archive known as the Million Song Dataset, which breaks down audio and lyrical content into data that can be crunched, to study pop songs from 1955 to 2010.

A team led by artificial intelligence specialist Joan Serra at the Spanish National Research Council ran music from the last 50 years through some complex algorithms and found that pop songs have become intrinsically louder and more bland in terms of the chords, melodies and types of sound used.

“We found evidence of a progressive homogenization of the musical discourse,” Serra told Reuters. “In particular, we obtained numerical indicators that the diversity of transitions between note combinations – roughly speaking chords plus melodies – has consistently diminished in the last 50 years.”

They also found the so-called timbre palette has become poorer. The same note played at the same volume on, say, a piano and a guitar is said to have a different timbre, so the researchers found modern pop has a more limited variety of sounds.

Intrinsic loudness is the volume baked into a song when it is recorded, which can make it sound louder than others even at the same volume setting on an amplifier.

The music industry has long been accused of ramping up the volume at which songs are recorded in a ‘loudness war’ but Serra says this is the first time it has been properly measured using a large database.

The study, which appears in the journal Scientific Reports, offers a handy recipe for musicians in a creative drought.

Old tunes re-recorded with increased loudness, simpler chord progressions and different instruments could sound new and fashionable. The Rolling Stones in their 50th anniversary year should take note.

Pretty rich white people surviving a tsunami: The Impossible

Based on the true life events of the 2004 tsunami that devastated South East Asia and killed over 200,000 people, Hollywood has decided to make a film called The Impossible that stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as wealthy European tourists caught in the disaster. If I can summarize this film in a nutshell, it would be: “A touching film starring white people who survive while seeing the poor dying brown people around them and realize how fragile life is.”

As usual, there is the trend that with white actors in leading roles about saving non-white people in disastrous situations, you have a guaranteed major distribution. However, if it’s from the perspective of the non-white folks that are afflicted, it is typically relegated to art house statuses and ethnic film festivals.

boycott this shit

upcoming whitewashing: “Pacific Rim”(2013)

The war on East Asians continues:

Question:  Who makes a movie to pay homage to Japanese giant monster films and only hire one Asian (Japanese) Actress?

Answer: racist Hollywood


link to the casting


Pacific rim (2013) according to the racist makers is supposed to be a homage to Japanese Giant monster films. Typical of racist Hollywood they can’t bother to hire more than one qualified Japanese actors and actresses. They only hire one Asian actress, a Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi. a white German Mexican actor Clifton Craig Collins, Jr  is playing a character called “Tendo Choi”. Tendo is a Japanese family name, the Choi name is both a Chinese and a Korean family name. only in racist Hollywood can white actors use Asian names. The racist brothers(WB) tried that shtick in their Akira remake which they only call for white men in their casting calls portray the Japanese leads and use the Japanese names, this overt racist action causes public anger and outrage which caused the racist brothers to cancel or shelved the Akira remake project.

Bank of Canada slammed over ‘racist’ move to scrap Asian image from $100 bills

Bank of Canada slammed over ‘racist’ move to scrap Asian image from $100 bills



The Bank of Canada purged the image of an Asian-looking woman from its new $100 banknotes after focus groups raised questions about her ethnicity.

The original image intended for the reverse of the plastic polymer banknotes, which began circulating last November, showed an Asian-looking woman scientist peering into a microscope.


The image, alongside a bottle of insulin, was meant to celebrate Canada’s medical innovations.

But eight focus groups consulted about the proposed images for the new $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 banknote series were especially critical of the choice of an Asian for the largest denomination.

“Some have concerns that the researcher appears to be Asian,” says a 2009 report commissioned by the bank from The Strategic Counsel, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.

“Some believe that it presents a stereotype of Asians excelling in technology and/or the sciences. Others feel that an Asian should not be the only ethnicity represented on the banknotes. Other ethnicities should also be shown.”

A few even said the yellow-brown colour of the $100 banknote reinforced the perception the woman was Asian, and “racialized” the note.

The bank immediately ordered the image redrawn, imposing a “neutral” ethnicity for the woman scientist who, now stripped of her “Asian” features, appears on the circulating note. Her light features appear to be Caucasian.

“The original image was not designed or intended to be a person of a particular ethnic origin,” bank spokesman Jeremy Harrison said in an interview, citing policy that eschews depictions of ethnic groups on banknotes.

“But obviously when we got into focus groups, there was some thought the image appeared to represent a particular ethnic group, so modifications were made.”

Mr. Harrison declined to provide a copy of the original image, produced by a design team led by Jorge Peral of the Canadian Bank Note Co.

Nor would he indicate what specific changes were made to the woman researcher’s image to give her a so-called “neutral,” non-ethnic look. He said the images were “composites” rather than depicting any specific individual.

A spokesperson for the Chinese Canadian National Council slammed the bank on Friday for bending to racism.

“The Bank of Canada apparently took seriously … racist comments and feedback from the focus groups and withdrew the image,” said May Lui, interim executive director of the group’s Toronto chapter.

“That was upsetting simply because of the history and longevity of Chinese-Canadians in this country.”

Ms. Lui demanded the bank “acknowledge their error in caving to the racist feedback.”

Victor Wong, the group’s national executive director, called on the bank to amend its policy of not depicting visible minorities.

“You’re erasing all of us,” he said from Toronto. “Your default then is an image with Caucasian features.”

The Strategic Counsel conducted the October 2009 focus groups in Calgary, Toronto, Montreal and Fredericton, at a cost of $53,000.

The Toronto groups were positive about the image of an Asian woman because “it is seen to represent diversity or multiculturalism.”

In Quebec, however, “the inclusion of an Asian without representing any other ethnicities was seen to be contentious.”

One person in Fredericton commented: “The person on it appears to be of Asian descent which doesn’t rep(resent) Canada. It is fairly ugly.”

Mu-Qing Huang, a Chinese-Canadian who has peered into microscopes for biology courses at the University of Toronto, called the bank’s decision a “huge step back.”

“The fact that an Asian woman’s features were introduced to the bill … I think itself is a huge step forward in achieving true multiculturalism in Canada,” Huang, 24, said in an interview in Ottawa.

“But the fact that the proposal was rejected represents a huge step back.”

She said the “overly sensitive” decision to remove the Asian features suggests prejudice against visible minorities persists in Canada.

“If Canada is truly multicultural and thinks that all cultural groups are equal, then any visible minority should be good enough to represent a country, including (someone with) Asian features.”

Ms. Huang, now pursuing an MA at the University of Toronto, came to Canada from China with her family at age 12, living in Toronto and Ottawa.

The 2006 census found that Canada’s population included more than five million people from visible minority groups, of which 1.2 million were Chinese and another 240,000 with ancestry from southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Laos.

The Bank of Canada introduced the new series of banknotes largely to thwart counterfeiters, though they are also expected to last much longer than the old versions. New $50 notes went into circulation in March, with $20 notes still to come in November.

The $50 and $20 banknotes feature a research icebreaker and the Canadian National Vimy Memorial respectively, with no images of ordinary Canadians. Some members of the focus groups said the Vimy memorial looked disturbingly like New York’s twin towers, brought down by terrorists in 2001.





The God who wasn’t there


Jesus myth hypothesis

Most of the film is a presentation of the argument for the Jesus myth hypothesis. Flemming and those he interviews in the film make these claims:

  • The history of Christianity, especially the doctrine of the earliest Christians, is consistent with Jesus having been a mythical character, with historical details only added on later.
  • The Epistles of Paul, which were written before the Gospels, show no awareness on the part of the author that Jesus was supposed to have been a human being who recently lived. Paul mentions only the crucifixion, the resurrection and the ascension and presents them as having occurred in a mythic realm rather than an earthly one.
  • The death-resurrection-ascension sequence was common in previous mythologies and religions, making it more likely that the Jesus character was inspired by his similar forebears than that he actually lived on Earth.
  • Other details of the Jesus biography offered in the Gospels also have precedent in previous mythologies and religions, especially Judaism. For example, the “Massacre of the Innocents” scene appears to be directly inspired by a nearly identical story in Exodus.

Other criticisms of Christianity

Besides defending the Jesus myth hypothesis, the film criticizes some other aspects of Christianity:

  • Flemming argues that moderate Christianity makes even less sense than a fundamentalist interpretation of Christian doctrine, asserting that the Bible contains many messages incompatible with toleration of non-Christians, who reject Jesus as the Savior of Christian doctrine and must therefore be regarded by Christians as damned.
  • Flemming sees God’s demand that people believe in him or be damned as essentially mind control. He interprets Mark 3:29 and similar passages as damning anyone who doubts the existence of the Holy Spirit. He is appalled by the notion that Jesus will forgive murder, theft, and any other sin but not this type of disbelief.
  • Because Jesus knows people’s innermost thoughts, and that therefore one must police one’s thoughts to avoid any doubt, Flemming summarizes this idea with the statement that the greatest sin in fundamentalist Christianity is “to think.”
  • Flemming asserts that Christians have historically been obsessed with blood sacrifice, and illustrates this viewpoint by pointing out that Mel Gibson‘s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, which contains very few scenes that do not feature graphic violence or suffering, was more financially successful than any previous film about Jesus.
  • The film references poll results indicating that 44% of Americans believe, to some degree, that Jesus will come back to Earth in their lifetime, and that this sort of thinking is not conducive to long-term governmental policies.

Japan’s Olympic soccer loss brings out the Twitter racism

More Olympic racism from white supremacists


in other news the American  team showed empathy to the Japanese team feeling their pain. When one accidental kicked a Japanese player she asked her if she is OK.


I talked about one of the reasons why I was cheering for Nadeshiko Japan to win the women’s soccer gold medal, but I didn’t really talk about what I was afraid of if they lost. Well, this is it; just as when Japan defeated the U.S. in last year’s World Cup, their loss in the final Olympic match has prompted a storm of ignorant Americans to post racist comments on Twitter, making vulgar connections between a soccer game and Pearl Harbor or Hiroshima. Just as “Olympics,” “soccer,” and “We are the champions” became trending topics on the social network, so too did the terms “Japs,” “Pearl Harbor,” and “Hiroshima.”

With Japan’s defeat on Thursday, the U.S. women’s team won the Olympic gold medal for the fourth consecutive time. And while the players held mutual respect for each other, and congratulated each other at the end on a game well-played, some disappointing American “fans” on Twitter did not behave the same. When Japan defeated the U.S. in Germany last year at the Women’s World Cup, one of the worst tweets I remember reading was to the effect of “Japan may have won the World Cup, but the U.S. scored the first two points with Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” referring to the two atomic bombings during World War II. Well, this year’s tweets did not fail to live up. JapanProbe got some great screenshots of the wonderful variety of ignorance and hatred.

And the best worst part of all? This all took place on August 9th, or, the 67th anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing. However, it’s still important to remember that this isn’t representative of the feelings of all Americans, or even the majority of them, but rather just a subset of really stupid ones who think a soccer game is somehow connected to a war that ended over 60 years ago.

[via IBTimes / screenshots by JapanProbe]

notice the black sellouts like   CliffyT, Jesus wore FUBU and Michael Broadhurst cheering along with the white racists ignoring the fact that during World War blacks where lynched, jim crowed and disenfranchised and Japanese Americans forced into internment camps.

if you are an Employer would you hire these twitter racists?
