A Missive from Post-America

In his latest essay El Inglés makes a few observations about the brawl that broke out in the New Red Apple Nail Salon in Brooklyn earlier this week.

A Missive from Post-America

by El Inglés

All honest white people will acknowledge that there is one area in which they harbour a deep insecurity with respect to Asians. By Asians, we refer here not to the denizens of the Indian subcontinent, whose true racial nature is unclear, and best captured with the decidedly untechnical term ‘brown.’ Rather, we refer to proper, epicanthically-enriched, chopstick-and-bamboo Asians, whose devastating abilities in the arts of hand-to-hand combat have long wowed film audiences around the world. They may be small and weedy-looking, but goodness me, they know how to fight, goes the refrain. Jet Li. Jackie Chan. Bruce Lee. You wouldn’t want to tangle with that lot, would you?

This concern about the combat superiority of the Asian has finally been dispelled thanks to a brief video made available online in recent days. Said video was captured on the cell phone of a witness to the brawl itself, which occurred in a nail salon in Brooklyn, Noo Yark. This fascinating anthropological resource shows a group of largely indeterminate, though substantially Chinesey-looking, female Asians going at it with a pair of angry, female, negro flailers straight out of central casting. And it sets the record straight as to the combat abilities of the Asian: Reader, they fight as badly as everyone else.

They shove. They flail. They stagger. They swipe. They hit people with brooms. Admittedly, said Asians are fairly elderly, and an injection of younger blood might allow us to witness, in future bouts, the occasional Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon-type moment. But, in a nutshell, they fight in the same raggedy-a**ed way that people always do in the real world. Jackie Chan, you lied to us!

The conflict itself was most peculiar. All informed people know that the absence of white people is supposed to result in a situation of post-racial harmony, as People of Colour display the profound love they hold for each other. Black, brown, yellow, blacky-brown, browny-black, yellowy-brown, blacky-yellowy-brown: colour matters not. POC move in. White people move out. Racial harmony ensues. So goes the theory.

And so much for theory. The reality seems to be rather different. POC move in. White people move out. POC start eating each others’ faces. White people move back in with riot gear to minimize casualties. The post-racial utopia is put on hold. Agitated negros cluster outside the immigrant establishments providing journalists with detailed descriptions of what their black a**es (their expression, not mine) will do if things do not improve. And so the wheel turns.

Those in the know will be aware of the general trend here. American immigration policy brings large numbers of poor but aspiring people to American shores, many of them from Asia. These people choose to settle in the big coastal cities, where they open labour-intensive businesses in poor areas with substantial black populations. These areas often present certain business opportunities due to the low entrepreneurial levels of the black populations and the unpleasantness of conducting businesses amongst and for the negro underclass.

Sooner or later, mutual hostility and contempt combine with resentment at the relative economic success of the newcomers to create brawls, sidewalk protests, police intervention, and much general frothing. In extreme circumstances, POC-on-POC hostility can become quite extreme. Interested parties are invited to investigate how much fun was had by the Korean population of LA during the LA Riots of 1992.

Speaking of Koreans, this development comes but a couple of weeks or so after another Asian incident in the United States. One Sarah Jeong, an American of South Korean extraction, had been awarded a prominent position on the editorial board of The New York Times for her apparent excellence in tech journalism. Before long, it transpired that she had previously made a great many unflattering remarks about white people on Twitter, including, but not limited to, the wonderful sentence fragment ‘dumb**s f***ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs p***ing on fire hydrants.’ She defended herself on the grounds that she was engaging in ‘satire’ and ‘counter-trolling.’

Of course, I sympathize with her basic position. I have often made cunning satirical reference to Koreans as a bunch of dog-eating, slant-eyed, kimchi-munching no-hopers, only to then be vilified as a racist. It is all most troubling. Satire is simply beyond most people these days. Being a sophisticated analyst of racial affairs opens one up to such unfair attacks, and the mob is relentless.

Despite the best efforts of the alt-right agitators on Twitter, it appears that Sarah Jeong will be keeping her job at The Times. Much discussion has centered on this development, most of it largely predictable in the arguments it presents. She’s a racist. No, you’re the racists, racists. No, she’s a racist. No, you are.

And in the background, post-America swirls into view.

Post-America is that space in the geographical United States where POC have swept or are sweeping in to replace the knuckle-dragging white racists, resulting in post-racial utopia or multi-racial dystopia, depending on your point of view. To this writer, it sounds very much like the latter.

We will continue to consider developments in post-America as and when appropriate source material presents itself. For now, we would simply present the following pieces of advice to our white friends and colleagues living in America, but in proximity to post-America:

1.   Stay away from Chinese nail salons patronized by black people.
2.   You fight as well as the Asians, if not better. But watch out for the brooms.
3.   Try not to forget that you’re dogs p***ing on lampposts.

Stay safe out there, WAYCISTS.

    • From the account you linked, it appears the Asian worker using the stick did indeed need to be charged with assault and battery, if not assault with a deadly weapon.

      I actually can’t fault the protesters too much for protesting a store employee hitting a local customer with a stick over a dispute involving not paying for a shoddy job. Of course, the blacks protest and riot over police action or incident involving a black, but in this case, would you want a local store where you stood to get hit with a broom over a payment dispute?

  1. Frankly, I find this whole thing to be a non-story. That’s what it would be without the “racial” element.

    On the video, the outrageous behaviour I see is the beating with the broomstick. The black lady seems annoying, but that’s about it. No more annoying than one encounters every day in customer service. Of course, I don’t know what led to the situation, so it’s entirely possible that she has good reasons to be annoyed, or that she’s just a generally annoying person, but the broomstick reaction seems excessive considering that the customer didn’t appear to be engaging in physical aggression.

  2. El Ingles,

    This is off topic for this particular post, but I want to thank you for all of the essays you have produced at GoV. They are incredible! I started reading them from 2007 and I’m GRADUALLY moving forward. (I’m in 2010 now.) Given how dire you considered things to be back then, the “refugee crisis” must have hit you like a tsunami. It’s heart-breaking.

    • The refugee crisis was, and continues to be, tremendously disturbing. Fortunately, in Britain, we are largely sheltered from the worst of it. I’m glad you’re enjoying my old essays. Remember, contributions to the El Ingles Social Welfare Fund are always appreciated! The best years of my youth were expended on that writing….

    • May I recommend without reservation El Ingles essays on Ethno-religious diversity and the Limits of Democracy, beginning with https://gatesofvienna.net/2015/03/ethno-religious-diversity-and-the-limits-of-democracy-part-one/

      This series gives you the theoretical explanation for why the political parties and the Congress are split down the middle with very little common ground, and why the divide is built into the multi-cultural society and is not subject to being repaired. Having a divided, paralyzed legislative and executive branch gives unlimited power to the Deep State, unelected, tenured bureaucrats literally out of reach of any legislative or executive oversight.

  3. Hilarious.

    The white man tends to be a uniting force.

    Everyone unites to fight him.

    When the white man leaves tribes go back to their old disputes.

    That’s what’s happening with Africa.

    European powers colonized Africa and black Africans put aside their tribal differences to fight him.

    But now that he is no longer in charge anywhere in Africa they have gone back to precolonial days ,fighting each other as tribes.

    this happened in Zimbabwe.

    But gradually European colonislaism is giving way to Chinese colonialsim.

    and in a generation or less the balck man will start attacking his new colonial masters the Chinese.

    And I shall sit back with some popcorn to watch the Chinese getting it in the neck.

    Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

    In their hubris the Chinese think -“This time it will be different .”

    And they are entirely wrong.

    • Are they? My guess is that South Africa is the next Zimbabwe, and that the Chinese will have a connection to it…

      The Chinese and Russians obviously no longer believe in Marxist and Maoist garbage as their own ideology, but I’d say that they have seen how destructive it is, and have now moved to weaponizing it. Quite successfully.

    • The Chinese are ruthless. No need for “western civilization” rules. Any culture that uses live prisoners for organ donations isn’t going to “get it in the neck”. At least they won’t after the first time.

      China’s quiet taking over of Africa’s minerals (no “rights” involved) has continued apace for some time now. The farmland will probably go fallow unless the Chinese find it profitable to ship the harvest back home.

      • The Chinese are not only ruthless. Their culture itself is perverted and schizoid from the point of view of the European. Eating embryos … horror …

        • I agree. Oriental cultures are known to be truly and typically horrible. And Chinese societies do tend to be extremely dysfunctional and abusive to us who happened to be in an unfortunate situation at one time or another. Just don’t let them control us. We will be fine.

    • The Chinese don’t fool around. When labour and social unrest strike them, esp. labour unrest, they will take quick and decisive action. They’ve already put down a few rebellions at some of the Chinese owned mines in West and South Africa. They were quick to pull out the guns.

  4. Like a lot of leftist utopian dreams, this worldpeace without white people is such an obvious lie to anyone who’s ever been to any black part of Africa. I’s rather shaky ideolgy, since it’s mostly based on wishful thinking and goes against the hard facts of the world. Very sad.

  5. Sarah Jeong regards herself as an indispensable asset to society casting her haloed light down on us mere mortals below. I just see her as a lamppost.

  6. Da werden Weiber zu Hyänen, as the old German saying goes…

    [Machine translation:

    “Since women become hyenas”

    This is an English-language blog. In future, please comment in English, or provide a translation.]

    • Sorry. It’s from a poem by Friedrich Schiller, hence the using of the original language. Roughly translated it means there are situations when women lose all conduct and start acting like wild, very aggressive animals.

      Anyway El Inglés may be right expecting any kind of civilized behaviour falling apart as soon as white people are out of the picture, but I do not understand what that incident has to do with aggressive tendencies among blacks. I mean, the customer had an argument with an employee of this shop, but she was not violent or anything like that. Certainly no reason to hit her with a broomstick, I should think!

      • The Song Of the Bell.
        I just read it again. We learned it by heart at school and I stress that it is full of the modern western wisdom customary in 1799. From work ethics to social behaviour, an overview of things mankind can be exposed to.
        The translation of M.Münsterberg seems appropriate in my humble estimation.

        • Yes, Das Lied von der Glocke – It’s a wonderful poem and I’m very happy that someone appreciates it! Thanks for telling me about the translation by Margarete Münsterberg. Seems very good to me.

  7. I’m white, grew up in Oakland in the 50s and 60s. I saw how blacks treated the Asians and it wasn’t nice. So this POC stuff is just that. Piece of crap.

    • The dislike of Asians by blacks is well-known in America. Many black people are chronically resentful of their success, even while they frequent Asian businesses.

      • I might add, following Gedaliah Braun, that they are resentful of ANY success( neighbours’ new transistor radio) even while they frequent white or asian doctors, hospitals, schools, colleges and use white inventions from the wheel to jetplanes.
        Even Heroin is a white man’s invention.

  8. El Inglés,
    have you ever seen the Steptoe & Son episode titled, “The Seven Steptoerai” ?

      • Well,
        it goes like this, the Steptoes are being threatened by a loan shark they borrowed money from, but Albert and his friends have been watching the kung fu movies at the local cinema, thanks to the discount for pensioners at the early matinees.
        Not to give too much away, the fighting tips the old boys pick up come in very handy at the end.
        I don’t have a link, but I’m sure it’s on youtube somewhere.

        BTW, for any Americans reading this, Steptoe & Son is the British TV show Sanford & Son was based on, although the British characters were white.

  9. I recall the books of writers who lived before the first and second world war.
    Both Russian and foreign. Now the anxiety that preceded World war II superimposed on the decadence and confusion that were before world war I.

    What is happening now in Russia looks like a book by Hasek “The Good Soldier Švejk”. But not funny. People can go to jail for a fly-stained portrait of the Emperor.

    • Wonderful book- I read it on the Baron’s recommendation.

      In Prague, round the corner from Dvorak’s house, there’s a bar named after Sveik.

  10. Very exciting video. Not enough Latin American women with chainsaws to bring luster to this beauty.

  11. “Satire is simply beyond most people these days.”

    Quite right. Fortunately for the Monty Python team, they are long retired as they certainly wouldn’t get an airing on today’s BBC.
