A leader of one of Asia’s leading peoples in an interview addresses the current condition of black people, and why “blacks” are in their current position, and continue to hold the status they’ve held onto for years.
Asian Interviewer: “Can you address their concerns Mr.Chang?”
MR. CHANG: “The concerns of Black people? Yes I can. The fact is, that we all live under a system of White Supremacy. We Asian people look back at our long history of conflict with the European. We observe their strategies and develop our own, in response and in kind. There is no need for loud mass movements on our part, because we intend to overtake them in time, through action and personal sacrifice”.
Asian INTERVIEWER: “And the Black man?”
MR. CHANG: “He does not count into our situation. He is simply here. We do not hate the Black man. We just love the Asian man most. Real love–not cliche. We want to see Asian man happy, so we employ him. We eat together. We spend time with each other. We want his kids to be educated, so we invest in our own schools that offer our children the technical abilities to change the world’s power structure in our favor. We want to see the Asian man safe, so we purchase and organize our own communities. We want him to remain Asian, so we reduce the outside influence of others ideologies and cultures. While he fought to sniff behind the White man, the Black man has had the opportunity and every right in the world to do the same, but he chooses to indict people like me for not hiring him over my own brothers. For me to do this would be foolish and that would not be Asian love. In contrast, the Black man will fight for the right to be up under everyone else other than other Black people who he should feel the most love for. If our indifference to their situation make us racist, then what would you call the Black man’s indifference to his own situation?”
If everyone else can notice the cause for our disposition in society, why can’t we? We are the only race that has a problem with unity, but yet we believe we have rights to criticize and discuss the position and status of other races when we can’t even get our own correct. I do not believe that Mr.Chang was trying to “bash” or “slander” black people, I believe that this was simply another wake up call, and we have indeed received many.
