Racist flier at UCLA, USC

So, Uncle Marmot, what did you learn from the John and Ken Show today?

How about this?

A horribly racist and sexist flier denouncing Asian women as “cunts” and “only dating honkie white boy” has sparked outrage at UCLA and USC.

The flier, which was sent anonymously on Feb. 1 to UCLA’s Asian American Studies Center and USC’s Asian Pacific American Student Services Department, appears to condemn Asian women for dating white men, according to the Daily Bruin. The crude and grammatically poor language in the flier includes lines like “Asian cunt sluts have low self-esteem up xi ass” and “Mexican womyn don’t worship honkie white boy like Asian cunts do!”

I just want to say this would never have happened at Georgetown.

Anyway, the Daily Bruin has posted the actual flyer. Classy stuff.

I do find the way it’s being reported to be mildly interesting. Naturally, it’s being painted as an attack on Asian-Americans. Which I guess it is, in the same way that threats against white women dating black men are an attack on white people.*

* Judging from the content, I’m guessing the flyer was distributed by either a) angry Asian men or b) jackass white dudes pretending to be angry Asian men. Judging from the over-the-top language, it could very well be the latter, but what the hell do I know.

    “ jackass white dudes pretending to be angry Asian men.“ How so?
    I don`t see the angle or point. If you’re going to mention it, please elaborate. Over the top language is your reasoning? That’s a bit of a reach imo.

    But then again, maybe i’m not in touch with current “Jackass Mentality” trends…

  • bigmamat

    Not familiar with Jackass Mentality well here let me give you an example http://www.koreabang.com/2014/stories/ilbe-presents-the-uniquely-korean-kimchi-bitch.html

  • redwhitedude

    c) angry white dude who got rejected by asian women in his sex tour of asia.

  • pawikirogii

    it’s the latter.get ready for a thousand post thead!

  • bumfromkorea

    Too much “~z” and “da” for this to be the works of angry Asian dudes.

    Actually, I think this is more likely option c) An Onion-esque attempt at humor that went terribly wrong because of the original author’s lack of… well, talent.

    This is supported by the fact that the flyer, despite using “cunt” to describe the Asian women, is using the classic feminist spelling “womyn” designation for Mexican women. This has to be a poorly done satire.

  • pawikirogii

    could it be aligner or bobby boggs?

  • DC Musicfreak

    My question would be: Why would white men of any type resent Asian women for dating only whites? Seems like a logic fail of the type you’d expect from PRC guys.

  • bumfromkorea

    Well in scenario B, the purpose of this would be to make fun of Asian dudes/make Asian dudes look bad, not actually condemning Asian girls.

  • babotaengi

    It would be pretty impressive if it was written by some angry Asian dude[s] who intentionally added the excessively poor use of the language to cloud judgement on the source of the flyer.

    But, yeah, I don’t think sex-starved Asian dudes are that creative, so probably just the blue-ball ravings of some white dude who got dumped or strung along by some Asian cutie.

  • DC Musicfreak

    Possibly. I’m not a connoisseur of fake Asian talk, but what I’ve heard tends to be that chingy chongy thing that everybody rightfully hates. And if it’s your scenario C, who can say if there are more failed white satirists or more bitter Chinese men out there? If I were a betting man, I’d go for the latter, in the case of California. We could be dealing with an angry, spurned white woman doing some twisted kind of slut-shaming. (That famous viral hate video of a few years ago was by a white woman at UCLA.). Maybe Matthew Miller is still trying to beat his dead horse for us.

  • ChuckRamone

    It could even be none of the above groups – an outside group that resents the Asian ladies and is trying to frame Asian dudes. The language in it sure is strange. It’s not someone who speaks bad English but someone mocking people’s bad English … or something.

  • PortaJohn

    Looks like a prank done by white boys to me, based on nothing more than the way the language seems to be ‘white boy does ebonics’. I can imagine a bunch of kids wanting to stir the pot. I mean seriously…. you drink a few beers, put up a racist flyer, and watch profs , groups , and admins do cartwheels in response.. and one of the admins is the former head of DHS! What fun! (for the wrong type of knothead).

  • DC Musicfreak

    So rap has not only dumbed down and defiled US music, but also the language itself? I guess I missed a lot spending 2 decades away from the US?

  • http://atlantarofters.blogspot.com The Sanity Inspector

    Whenever I read “campus” and “hate crime” in the same article these days, I just assume it’s a hoax, until proven otherwise.

  • wangkon936

    My money is on butt hurt Asian dude. Dead giveaway? The praise of Latino women, which I hear a lot of from butt hurt Asian dudes.

  • bumfromkorea

    There’s gotta be a way to arrange a bet over this online. :D

  • whitewalker

    Could be a butthurt Black guy,too. Who knows?

  • whitewalker

    d) angry Black dude seeing all the Asian girls with White guys.

  • wangkon936

    At UCLA!?!?!.. I don’t know ’bout that.

  • Matthew French

    Shut up Robert Koehler, you are the racist, with your constant hatred of anything Japanese. You are also a race traitor, constantly apologising for bad Korean behaviour and demonizing the behaviour of white and black foreigners in Korea… Oh! Hold on… you make money out of doing this… sorry… carry on!

  • wangkon936

    I believe Robert’s posting history shows a balance of both embarrassing Korean actions and embarrassing expat actions. Robert appears to show consistent disapproval on Japanese views of their history as it relates to their neighbors. Some may view that as one sided, however I wouldn’t call it racist.

    Please cite specific support for each of these assertions otherwise I will consider this comment a pure ad hominem attack and unworthy of protection.

  • redwhitedude

    e) frustrated white guy who has fetish for asian girls who can’t land dates with them.

  • redwhitedude

    And we have another episode of 2ch trolling.

  • whitewalker

    The possibilities are endless!

  • wangkon936

    I’d put some money on this.

  • wangkon936

    Yeah, but you need to put odds behind each one.

  • ChuckRamone

    What’s the betting line on this?

  • DC Musicfreak

    J.Kimchi and Netizen Kim have displayed that “style” and that misogynist attitude over the years…

  • Matthew Miller

    Don’t you mean to say “Matthew Miller”?

  • wangkon936

    IMHO:

    2 to 1 Asian (East Asian and Pacific Islander)
    3 to 1 White (Non-Hispanic)
    4 to 1 Asian (Indian Subcontinent, including Pakistan)
    5 to 1 Black
    6 to 1 Hispanic
    10 to 1 Middle Eastern

  • wangkon936

    Whatever happened to Netizen Kim? Haven’t seen him in ages. Last I heard he was blogging about the art of candle making.

  • JW

    Probably got married, had a kid, etc etc. There are chicks out there that dig his style. I’m sure of it!

  • whitewalker

    The worn-out ’80s rap video language is odd,too. Well, whoever did it, they definitely tried to stir the sh*t from every direction.

  • wangkon936

    Maybe… but still. Even his personal blog hasn’t had an entry since 2011:

    http://midnightengineer.wordpress.com/

  • ChuckRamone

    Someone should do some kind of syntactical evaluation of the person’s prose, and compare it to that of trolls online. Surely, the responsible party also trolls the Internet with crap like this.

  • wangkon936

    Yep. He’s married and he has a kid. Ain’t gonna tell you how I know… ;)

  • djson1

    f) it was the work of aliens. That would explain the weird language and the thing just not making sense. It totally makes sense now….Angry aliens. What was “xi ass”??

  • wangkon936

    Ya think?

    Interesting, however, I have never considered riding side saddle. far to many complications could result.

  • dlbarch

    Well, I think the first step in solving this whole flyer mystery should be for someone to confirm that Yie Eun-woong hasn’t immigrated to SoCal.

  • JW

    How about even odds for Yuna Kim? It’s the going rate in vegas. How much would you bet? (I’m seriously considering it)

  • billybudd18

    Whatever happened to Sperwer??

  • Wedge1

    The only racist stuff being done on campuses anymore is by liberal racism watchdogs to justify their existence. Wouldn’t surprise me if this is the same thing.

  • bumfromkorea

    I can think of one counter example. And wow, this was not intentional, but this one’s also from UCLA.

    Nothing unites men of all creeds and color like a juvenile imagination of girl-on-girl action. :D

  • bumfromkorea

    Huh, I thought betting on the Olympics was illegal in Las Vegas. Not exactly a significant point, something considered “illegal” in Vegas, but still.

  • JW

    I had no idea! One thing I don’t get–why is Olympics classified as amateur sporting event and therefore eligible for banning? Sounds ridiculous. Anyway…non vegas websites have her odds up and are taking bets. So is 50/50 a good deal you think?

  • hoju_saram

    What about white lesbian with Asian fetish?

  • IAMIN YURI

    old and boring humor

  • ChuckRamone

    I’ve thought about this more and I’m pretty sure it fits the profile of b, the latter. They are mocking Ebonics, Asian American women, and Asian American men, and making some kind of commentary about political correctness. Sounds like one of those angry Tea Baggers who’s always ranting about how everyone’s too politically correct and always “playing the race card.”

  • http://f5waeg.blogspot.com/ F5Waeg

    naw, I’d put my money on Angry Asian Guy. . . hear the same kinds of comments from that lot frequently

  • felddog13

    My vote is the perp is a white guy butt-hurt because he got a C- in organic chem or calculus and blames all the asians for throwing off the grading curve.

  • Arghaeri

    The chingy chongy thing that everyone hates?

    Except Koreans you mean!!!

  • http://f5waeg.blogspot.com/ F5Waeg

    Is UCLA a good school? All I remember is years back trying to walk through some random anti American protest and being accosted by some young righteous indignant Korean dude wearing a UCLA hoodie telling me I could never understand Korea

  • silver surfer

    Hard to spot a parody of something that looks like a parody in the first place.

  • whuddyasack

    I choose e.

  • redwhitedude

    I choose g) angry white dude who couldn’t tell a chinese from Korean and thought he was paying for a “korean” girl realizes that he was fleeced.

  • whuddyasack

    The creator of this flier obviously has a good command of the English language. Native Asians won’t have this fluency/creativity and Asian Americans don’t typically use the words honkie, cracker, slut or whore. Also, the swastika isn’t a big enough part of their life to put it up there, but it is a very big part of the more nationalistic tea bagger types.

    Sounds like a repeat of 2012 to me. Back then, I should have listened to the few Asians, including females who felt the perp was a White male. I should have found the fact that the flier was pasted in the girl’s bathroom suspect. Now that this whole drama has come back again, it does look like the work of a bored, dateless, frustrated White male with nothing better to do than stir the pot.

    In 2012, the vast majority thought it was the work of an Asian male without clear evidence. 2 years later, the Asian male should have learned his lesson given the harsh anger directed towards him by everyone (including other Asian males). The original perpetrator clearly did get away and thus his boldness to repeat the same act. It’s sad when you think about it.

    On the surface, this flier’s agenda looks like an insult towards Asian females and White males. Look closer, and the flier’s actual agenda is to perpetuate the myth that Asian females exclusively date White men and shun their own. And those who accuse Asian males most strongly incidentally also happen to believe it is because Asian male is jealous. The victims in this flier are Asians.

  • whuddyasack

    Hahaha thanks for the chuckle. ;-)

  • ChuckRamone

    Also, did you see the handwriting on the outside of the envelope? It definitely was not an Asian from Asia, as he or she would probably would have been beaten to a pulp as a child for having such bad handwriting. But the flier is written in a weird faux Asian/Ebonics accent, which kinda eliminates Asian Americans from the equation. I agree with you that it was probably someone from an outside group trying to make Asian men and women look bad.

  • redwhitedude

    Yea, what’s too bad for those people is that they can’t complain to the consumer protection agencies. Rats!

  • whuddyasack

    Haha, good one. But yet somehow, the idea of a Chinese pretending to be a Japanese or Korean to get more “bucks for the bang” seems strangely realistic.

    Can’t say I blame the prostitutes though. If anything, I think the paying customers deserve it for being cheap xD

  • whuddyasack

    Agreed. Speaking of which, here’s something I discovered. The Daily Bruin is the official student newspaper for UCLA.

    This one is from the article relating to the use of the world “illegal”:

    Use the right word wrote:
    “Are they in the country legally? No? Then “illegal” seems to be
    accurate. I hope the police don’t stop arresting “undocumented” murderers.”

    Count_Yob wrote:
    “Illegal immigrant is not totally accurate. I prefer to call them criminal alien invaders.”

    FeelBadforUCLAGrads wrote:
    “Let’s play it safe. Forget “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant.” Stick with “Pablo, Juanita and the ninos.”

    There are many more comments like these every time a non-White is involved. Thankfully, most are deleted e.g. FU’s comment in Muslim Students Association prays for sunshine.

    I’m almost 100% certain these comments are NOT coming from Asians of any sort and the pervasiveness of such comments does make suspicion that such fliers are the work of dateless, angry White male trolls legitimate.

    In any case, I think the entire staff in UCLA and online trolls ought to hang their heads in shame. It really shows the incompetence of the staff in protecting their students.This comment sums it up perfectly:

    The policies and written condemnation are not enough to address the very real issues of racial and class discrimination because no action is ever taken to fix the problem. Only empty words. Why? Because the real message is that the culture on campus secretly supports this tension. If they really cared they would address our countless grievances submitted to the Deans office and ask for our help coming up with solutions. Instead they hide or punish those brave enough to come forward.

  • redwhitedude

    I’m pretty sure Koreans can tell not sure if westerners can tell. But then again some of the westerners wouldn’t be able to tell thai from a Korean.

  • SayWhat

    There was a open meeting at UCLA, yet the number of people compared to the actual population, who showed up is kinda pathetic. Comes to show not many Asian students don’t really care for this issue.

    Fouseytube posted a great video that shows that most Asians don’t care about other peoples problems on campus.
