    A viral video released this week caught a woman on camera launching a racist tirade against an Asian-American service member in a parking lot in California. James Ahn said he was driving earlier this month when the woman pulled up next to him and pulled her eyes back in an offensive gesture. “This is not your f—-king country,” she says in the video. “This is my country.” SNIP “All that we could establish is that this was derogatory remarks between two parties,” Bosques said. “There was no threat and there was no crime committed. We did document everything in a...

    A former employee of YouTube (a subsidiary of Alphabet, parent of Google) alleged in a recently filed lawsuit that YouTube is discriminating against white and Asian men. “YouTube last year stopped hiring white and Asian males for technical positions because they didn’t help the world’s largest video site achieve its goals for improving diversity,” the suit alleges. Liberal discrimination against white men is nothing new, but many people are caught by surprise to see such explicit discrimination against Asian males in the name of diversity from one of the most progressive companies in one of the most liberal zip codes....

But for a certain class of Chinese parents, Saipan has become known as the latest hot spot for birth tourism, a place where women can give birth to babies who will automatically acquire U.S. citizenship.

    Chloe Bennet, who stars in TV series Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, has said she had to change her name from Chloe Wang in order to make it in Hollywood. The actress praised Ed Skrein for recently pulling out of Hellboy. His casting had been criticised for "whitewashing" the original character, who is of Asian heritage. She told an Instagram follower who queried her name change: "Hollywood is racist and wouldn't cast me with a last name that made them uncomfortable." "Changing my last name doesn't change the fact that my BLOOD is half Chinese, that I lived in China, speak...

    I waited to write about this story because at first it seemed too insane to be true, but alas, it's come to this. ESPN pulled Asian-American sports announcer Robert Lee from this weekend's University of Virginia vs. William & Mary football game because they were afraid he might offend people. Why? His name is too similar to Confederate General Robert E. Lee. For the record, Robert E. Lee is white and has been dead for over 100 years. Fox Sports radio host Clay Travis broke the story earlier tonight. From Outkick The Coverage:  In a story that seems made for The Onion,...

    Apparently, even being Asian doesn’t mean people won’t take you for being a white nationalist. According to the popular college-football blog Outkick the Coverage, ESPN pulled an Asian announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game. The announcer’s name is Robert Lee. “Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?” blogger Clay Travis asked rhetorically in a post that poured scorn over the popular sports network for political correctness, calling it “MSESPN.” Citing “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN,” Mr. Travis said Mr. Lee was pulled from the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary “because they...

    Affirmative action is once again in the news. This time because of a leaked Justice Department memo indicating possible action regarding complaints from Asian-American groups that Harvard University is discriminating against Asian-Americans in its admissions policies. As this story was breaking, Harvard released news that, for the first time in history, the majority of its incoming freshman class will not be white. Per the story, 50.8 percent of Harvard's class of 2021 will not be white. Here's Harvard's spokesperson: "To become leaders in our diverse society, students must have the ability to work with people from different backgrounds, life experiences,...

    The video of Dr. David Dao, with blood on his face and his shirt up, being dragged off a United Airline plane by a security guard sparked outrage and wide condemnation, not just in the U.S., but also in China. It was viewed over 600 million times through China's Twitter-like service, Weibo, provided by Sina.com. While in the U.S., media and public largely focused on United's poor customer service and PR fiasco afterwards, Chinese netizens zeroed in on Dr. Dao's race.Dr. Dao was first reported as a Chinese American, but later reports identified him as a Vietnamese American. But this later correction doesn't...

    Ira Madison III, an MTV News culture writer and host, mocked Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Asian-American grandchildren on Twitter Tuesday morning. Sessions appeared before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Tuesday to give testimony in connection with his nomination by President-elect Donald Trump to serve as attorney general. Sessions was accompanied by many members of his family, including his four Asian-American grandchildren. The senator’s daughter, Ruth Sessions Walk, is married to John Walk, an Asian-American man. Madison accused Sessions of stealing his grandchildren from Toys “R” Us for the hearing. He went on to call his grandchildren a “prop,” brought...

    Between 1940 and 1970, something remarkable happened to Asian Americans. Not only did they surpass African Americans in average household earnings, but they also closed the wage gap with whites. ... [The real secret to Asian American success was not education] How did that happen? About the same time that Asian Americans were climbing the socioeconomic ladder, they also experienced a major shift in their public image. At the outset of the 20th century, Asian Americans had often been portrayed as threatening, exotic and degenerate. But by the 1950s and 1960s, the idea of the model minority had begun to...

    In early July of 2000, the Chinese language newspaper Sing Tao published a five-part feature on Elaine Chao, who has since become secretary of labor. The articles covered a number of issues including Chao’s views on China and U.S.-China relations. Among her comments were that she “in no way” agrees with the Cox Report, that the U.S. media and Hollywood demonize China, that it is unfortunate the Republican Party has Christian and religious critics of China and that China should understand it is in a public relations war and should improve its PR by cultivating contacts with Congress and journalists....

    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.....

    SANFORD - A group of local Chinese-Americans took their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to new heights on Saturday. The results were visible across much of the Triangle. An ad hoc group of local Chinese-Americans who are linked via a messaging app called WeChat – developed by Chinese company Tencent – pooled their resources to hire a single-engine plane towing a banner that proclaimed: “NC Chinese Americans for Trump.” The 180-horsepower Aviat Husky A-1B’s scheduled four-hour flight path started at the Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford and included a flyby of Carter-Finley Stadium prior to the game between...
