“There’s a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?”
***end of tweets***
On July 22, 2019, CNN reports that the above statements were tweeted out by Kathy Zhu. It appears that she tweeted one out in 2017 and the other in 2018. Well, Well, Well… Kathy Zhu, was crowned as Miss Michigan, by the Miss World America (MWA) organization on July 18, 2019. But, when the above “tweets” came to light to the “MWA” …on July 19, 2019…the Miss World America organization took away Kathy Zhu’s title as Miss Michigan.
On July 21, 2019…CBS News…reports… “Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu was stripped of her title after several insensitive and racist tweets surfaced. The 20-year-old received an email Friday from the pageant removing her from her position.” CBS goes on further to report the pageant’s email as saying… “It has been brought to the attention of Miss World America ‘MWA’ that your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content… Therefore, and effective immediately, MWA does not recognize you as a participant of any sort or in any capacity as it relates to any and all events of MWA.””
The New York Times reports on July 21, 2019… “The tiara went to Kathy Zhu, but one day after she had been crowned Miss Michigan by the Miss World America organization, the beauty queen was stripped of her title. Racially and religiously charged comments Ms. Zhu had made on Twitter came to the attention of pageant organizers, who ruled that they violated the competition’s rules of “good character.””
O.k… So, who is this Kathy Zhu…person???
The New York Post…on July 20, 2019…says… “A Trump-loving beauty pageant winner was stripped of her Miss Michigan title over the content of her social media.” CNN also reports… “Kathy Zhu, a University of Michigan student and vice president of the school’s College Republicans…”
The New York Times, on July 21, 2019, reports… “Ms. Zhu, a conservative activist who is a University of Michigan senior and the social media director for the national group Chinese Americans for Trump, shared on social media an email she had received on Thursday from the pageant’s state director, Laurie DeJack.”
So… We are told Kathy Zhu…is a “Trump-loving” … “Republican” … “Chinese American.” And… I saw a picture…where Kathy Zhu is wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap. Mmmmhhh…
Now, don’t get me wrong…
I know that God gave us the free will to make decisions, be they good, bad or in between. BUT…BUT…BUT…seeing Asian folk wearing those stupid ass “Make America Great Again” caps…makes me want to shout out to them… “ARE YOU DELUSIONAL—OR—ARE YOU JUST CRAZY AS HELL???”
Because Trump & his “ride or die” …racist & ignorant ass…supporters don’t want no Asians in their “White Nationalist” group. THEY DON’T! It’s almost like Aunt Jemima…knocking on Strom Thurmond’s door…getting down on one knee…asking him…if she can integrate…into his household. IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN, PEOPLE!!! IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!
Because ole Strom and George Wallace (before his ass got shot) were of the same damn mindset… “SEGREGATION NOW!…SEGREGATION TOMORROW!…SEGREGATION FOREVER!” And, they meant that shit!
I don’t know when…where…or how…Asian folks…somehow got this shit twisted & came to think that their asses were not included in this “segregationist” mindset of White Nationalist. Well… I’m here to tell them…that THEY ARE!…NOW!…TOMORROW! &…FOREVER!…EXCLUDED…from the White Nationalist club. Yes! You see in the eyes of these racist ass White folk…Asians…ARE WHAT??? HUHH???
THAT’S RIGHT!…I remember, now… “NOT WHITE!”
Now, for the record…on any normal day…that didn’t include Tuesdays, Thursdays & every other Friday…this shit wouldn’t even be on my radar. I wouldn’t give a damn…about these Asian folk trying…to get lynched…VOLUNTARILY! At least, most Black folk…got sense enough to run…AWAY…from White Nationalists…as opposed to running TOWARDS…them. Maybe, it’s a language thing. I DON’T KNOW! If it is…then, I say… “DAMN!… you Asians need to get your asses into some language class. And, don’t get discouraged when you walk into the classroom…& see a lot of Hispanics. NO, don’t get scared. Hispanic folk are just trying to make it too…in this crazy ass country. Just ask them to move over & share a seat. Because, I’m telling you…SOMETHING…is terribly wrong with this picture.”
O.k…somebody tell me, pl-e-e-e-e-e-e-ase…
Did these Asians, who are wearing these M-A-G-A caps…NOT get the memo…about the internment camps, that were set up in this country… during WWII??? When this country declared war on Japan…after the attack on Pearl Harbor…President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. The Library of Congress states… “President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, allowing for the exclusion of persons from designated areas for security purposes. The order did not designate any specific group for exclusion, but in practice it was primarily used against people of Japanese ancestry, both citizens and legal residents. There was no mass incarceration of American citizens or residents from any other group.”
Smithsonian magazine reports… “The roundups began quietly within 48 hours after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, on December 7, 1941. The announced purpose was to protect the West Coast. Significantly, the incarceration program got underway despite a warning; in January 1942, a naval intelligence officer in Los Angeles reported that Japanese-Americans were being perceived as a threat almost entirely “because of the physical characteristics of the people.” Fewer than 3 percent of them might be inclined toward sabotage or spying, he wrote, and the Navy and the FBI already knew who most of those individuals were. Still, the government took the position summed up by John DeWitt, the Army general in command of the coast: “A Jap’s a Jap. They are a dangerous element, whether loyal or not.””
History.org reports… “Over 127,000 United States citizens were imprisoned during World War II. Their crime? Being of Japanese ancestry. Despite the lack of any concrete evidence, Japanese Americans were suspected of remaining loyal to their ancestral land. On the whole, however, life in the relocation centers was not easy. The camps were often too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. The food was mass produced army-style grub. And the interns knew that if they tried to flee, armed sentries who stood watch around the clock, would shoot them.”
That’s ri-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-g-h-t! And, they say the camps were ONLY suppose to be for “Japanese” because we were at war…with Japan.
Do you think, for one second…that these White folk…who were locking these Japanese American citizens up…were taking time out…to diligently check…& question… “Are you Chinese…Vietnamese…Korean…or Japanese…because we don’t want to lock up the wrong people?” I’ll tell you… “HELL NO!” To these White folk…THEY ALL LOOKED THE SAME! They were afraid that there would be more sneak attacks made by these Asian folks…against good ole “White folk” …& they were gonna stop it…by any means necessary.
Wait a minute!…wait a minute!…my bad…they did do a little something.
In December 1941, Life Magazine published an article entitled… “How To Tell Japs From The Chinese.” Yes! The article was written because angry White folk were victimizing “Chinese” citizens because of how they looked. Life magazine wanted to tell the good folks of America how to distinguish between Japanese and Chinese folks. O.k…
Here we go…
According to Life magazine, Chinese folk can be distinguished by the following characteristics: parchment yellow complexion; scant beard; frequent epicanthic fold of skin above eyelid; higher bridge on the nose; never has rosy cheeks; with long, fine-boned face.
O.k…now, we are getting somewhere…
According to Life magazine, Japanese folk can be distinguished by the following characteristics: earthly yellow complexion; heavy beard; less frequent epicanthic fold of skin above eyelid; flatter nose; sometimes rosy cheeks; broader, shorter face; massive cheek and jawbone.
Wow! It is not everyday that you learn this kind of information. This shit is invaluable!!!
Based on what I have learned from Life magazine, I now can spot a Chinese person… from sea to shining sea. No matter if they are climbing Mount Everest or hiding under a pet rock…I’ll will be able to SPOT them. For sure! You see… Not everybody has “parchment yellow” complexions. And, you got to be able to tell the difference. How in the hell can you dare confuse a “parchment yellow” complexion with an “earthly yellow” complexion??? COME ON PEOPLE! Everybody knows this shit. It’s the same…as the difference between “bubble gum” pink…and “fuschia” pink.
But, let me tell you what really let me know…that from now on, I will never get a Chinese person mixed up with a Japanese person. Because Life magazine…has given me such clear & convincing evidence…I know that when I see an Asian person with rosy cheeks…it is with 90% probability…going to be a Japanese Santa Claus. Yeah!
Now, let’s keep going…
And, if the truth be told…millions of White folk, then…millions of White folk, now…ARE NOT…too keen on Asian folks, period! Oh, sure… They will tolerate them to… a degree. But, let either…China…Japan…South Korea…North Korea…start some shit…with America…then, guess what??? That’s right! Before you could bat a lash…their Asian asses will be right back…in internment camps! I’m telling you the truth. That’s how millions of White folk…flow…in this country.
So…to all Asians…in this country…who want to be honorary members of the White Nationalist club…I say…
“Dear Confused: Your asses are never going to be accepted by the racist devils…you are trying to emulate. If you think that degrading Muslims…Black folk…& Hispanic folk…is going to get you anywhere…you are sadly mistaken. It will get you no brownie points. You see…
White Nationalists don’t see your asses as equal. ARE YOU *^%$#@ CRAZY??? They…see Asians…as “chinks”… “slant eyes” …who dared to kill their countrymen in sneak attacks at Pearl Harbor. That day is forever entrenched into their hearts & they will never forgive any Asian for it. And, they make no distinction based on whether you are Japanese…Chinese…Korean…blah, blah, blah. What DO they care about??? These racist devils…care about whether you are White…or…not. It would be to your benefit to remember this.”
Now…to Ms. Zhu…I say this…
“You so boldly displayed what could easily be seen as a racist ass attitude…towards Muslims & Black folk…in your tweets. And… GIRL, I saw you SO PROUDLY wearing your red “MAGA” hat. YES! Now, all of your reasons for tweeting what you did…only, God knows. But, I will ask you this… Are trying to show Trump…you are down with “the cause” of maligning & degrading the folks…that White Nationalists, like him, hate??? Might you be ashamed of being Asian??? Are you trying to be an “honorary” White woman??? Do you think you will be held in higher esteem by White Nationalists…if you are seen as attacking the same folks…that they relish attacking???
The Heavenly Father tells us… “Envy thou not the oppressor and choose none of his ways.” (Proverbs 3:31) I would suggest that you remember these words…for the sake of your soul.”
Well, time is short, so I’ll leave you with this…
If the folks who gave you that “crown” had not already dethroned your ass…I would be telling you…that you could take that crown and shove it up your ass. But, again…they took that shit from you. Mmmmhhh… All’s Well, That Ends Well.”
