    A major double manhunt has been launched after a sickening back-to-back assault in Birmingham, England. Detectives said the teen was first attacked in a secluded part of Witton railway station, near the Aston Villa football ground, about 120 miles northwest of London, sometime between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 2 a.m. Wednesday. The victim had walked to the station with her friend but was led away by a man who approached her. Shortly after that attack, the girl walked out of the station and flagged down a passing vehicle to ask for help. But after getting in the car, she was...

    An advert for a beauty chain has sparked furious allegations of racism when it depicts a woman with 'blackface' as being undesirable. Watsons said the ad was about the legend of Dayang Senandong, which is Malay folklore about a lady 'cursed with black skin but blessed with a beautiful voice'.  In the story, a wealthy merchant falls for an enchanting female voice.

    Pierson College Dean June Chu apparently has an aversion to “white trash” and “sketchy” or “low class folks” and everyone at Pierson College – a residential college at Yale – is taking issue with it. Chu, who’s been with Pierson since May 2016, has been quite busy writing Yelp reviews and lambasting many of the local establishments for their food, service, patrons, employees or anything else that doesn’t strike her fancy, and students at Pierson have been circulating her reviews amongst themselves for months.
  • Scientists: Asian Pollution Causing West Coast Smog

    Air quality in some East Asian capitals is famously poor, with residents of Beijing taking extreme measures to avoid the health risks associated with heavy pollution. The problem has grown worse as emerging Asian economies, particularly China, have increased their use of high-sulfur coal and private automobiles. Now, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warn that East Asian pollution may be causing smog along the West Coast of the United States, as nitrogen oxides move on air currents across the Pacific Ocean.

    EVERY December, more than 1,000 female high school students, some as young as 15, take part in a “bikini competition” held in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao. The event, hosted by Oriental Beauty, a modelling agency, provides a platform for aspiring flight attendants to show off their bikini bodies to eager recruiters from the Chinese airline industry. Those deemed the most attractive are invited to join a fast-track flight attendant trainee scheme, which can open the door to a dream job at one of China’s big airlines.

    A striking majority of Asian-American voters backed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, according to a national poll. The Asian-American National Election Eve Poll concluded that 75% of Asian Americans voted for Clinton, while only 19% voted for Donald Trump—a much wider margin than found by exit polls, which reported 65% of Asian Americans voting for Clinton. “Once again, the national media exit-poll numbers for Latinos and Asian Americans didn’t do it right and didn’t get it right,” Taeku Lee, UC Berkeley political science professor and the survey’s lead researcher, said in a release..... Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are...

    Trying not to offend someone these days is really hard apparently. When you do, it’s often those people shouting for peace and calm that like to assault people they disagree with. Probably the most hilarious way of offending someone, however, is when they are offended that you aren’t offended by something! That’s exactly what happened to model Christine Teigen earlier this week. As was also reported by Newsbusters, Teigen ran into some unexpected hot water when she made two seemingly innocent tweets about how she found the word “oriental” to be odd when talking about her salad dressing:

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Even though the explosive spread of the Zika virus has been met with a new level of international response, thanks to lessons learned from the Ebola crisis, experts warn they are only beginning to grasp the damage the mosquito-borne virus can do. Doctors speaking at a U.N. meeting on Global Health Crises said Monday that the Zika virus has already affected 60 countries on four continents, and a major outbreak on the Atlantic Ocean island nation of Cape Verde suggests the disease is now poised to enter continental Africa. Zika has already become epidemic in Latin...

    jihad watch ^ | 10/8/15 | Robert Spencer
    The Daily Mail is a British paper, and in the British press, “Asian” is the universally-employed code word for “Muslim.” If this British paper is suddenly using the word to refer, as in the American custom, to people from China or Japan, they’re not saying so. And so now the plot thickens. Police are insisting this attack had nothing to do with terrorism, but they always do that, no matter what the circumstances. If Spencer Stone was indeed stabbed by Muslims, then the possibility that the stabbing was related to his stopping the jihad attack on the French train cannot...

    Asians will beat Hispanics to become America’s largest immigrant population by 2055, according to a Pew Research Center report released Monday. The study estimated the United States' immigrant population by 2065 and noted that the turning point comes in 2055 when 36 percent of the migrants will be from Asia. Migrants are estimated to account for 88 percent of the increase in the American population between 2015 and 2065, the report stated. Currently, 14 percent of the population comprises immigrants compared to 5 percent in 1965. "Without the immigrants, the U.S. population would start decreasing," said Pew demographer Jeff Passel,...

    Police watchdog examining how South Yorkshire force treated complaints of industrial-scale child sexual exploitation in the town, laid bare in Jay report. Investigators looking at how the police treated complaints of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham say they are now working to identify more than 100 officers. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it was continuing to examine police conduct exactly a year on from the publication of the Jay report, which exposed the scale of child rape, trafficking and grooming in the South Yorkshire town.

    In an episode that speaks volumes about cultural institutions, ethnic sensitivity, and the power of protest in the digital age, the Museum of Fine Arts is hastily pulling back on an event that protesters labeled a latter-day form of racist minstrelsy. MFA officials announced Tuesday they would recast “Kimono Wednesdays,” an attraction scheduled to run throughout July. It is extremely rare for the MFA to change exhibition plans in the wake of protests; it appears such action had not been taken for decades. Created as a light summer distraction, “Kimono Wednesdays” invited visitors to “channel your inner Camille Monet” by...

Tyrelle Shaw, 25, was found hanged in an elevator shaft in an apartment building Monday, police said on Tuesday. Shaw was wanted for four attacks on Asian women two weeks ago. In each instance, the attacker hit the victim in the face with a hard object....

    At least 300 possible suspects have been identified by investigators probing the Rotherham child sex exploitation scandal. The National Crime Agency (NCA) said most of the potential suspects were Asian men, while the vast majority of victims were young British girls. The NCA launched a major investigation into the scandal after a damning report by Professor Alex Jay last year, revealed that as many as 1,400 children had been raped, trafficked and groomed by mainly Asian gangs in the South Yorkshire town between 1997 and 2013. Following the revelations South Yorkshire police, which was criticised for its handling of abuse...

    The Old Bailey yesterday heard the terrifying story of two schoolgirls who were groomed and raped by an Aylesbury paedophile gang, when aged just 12 and 13. Eleven members of the gang, who are accused of carrying out the crimes between 2006 and 2012 face 49 criminal charges between them including child rape, child prostitution and ... The court heard how the two girls came from broken homes and were easily manipulated because the men gave them excitement, bought them gifts such as drugs, DVDs, and alcohol, and made them feel adult. Girl ‘A’ said in a police statement: “You...

    Washington — An alliance of Asian American groups on Friday filed a federal complaint against HarvardUniversity, saying that school and other Ivy League institutions are using racial quotas to admit students other than high-scoring Asians. More than 60 Chinese, Indian, Korean and Pakistani groups came together for the complaint, which was filed with the civil rights offices at the Justice and Education departments. They are calling for an investigation and say these schools should stop using racial quotas or racial balancing in admission. "We are seeking equal treatment regardless of race," said Chunyan Li, a professor and civil rights activist,...

    When actress Tippi Hedren visited a Vietnamese refugee camp in California 40 years ago, the Hollywood star's long, polished fingernails dazzled the women there. Hedren flew in her personal manicurist to teach a group of 20 refugees the art of manicures. Those 20 women - mainly the wives of high-ranking military officers and at least one woman who worked in military intelligence - went on to transform the industry, which is now worth about $8bn (£5.2bn) and is dominated by Vietnamese Americans. "We were trying to find vocations for them," says Hedren, who is perhaps best known for starring in...
