    • Thank you for your video. Hopefully more Asians learn to undo and deal with our anti-Blackness. We should help use some of our privilege to help advance the Black community. Like become patrons to their businesses. You know what would be cool is if we help start a program to protect Black people from say the cops.

    • This is a nice attempt at sugar-coating what is actually happening. As your video clearly shows the West has had a hate-a-thon against China and the Chinese for the last 200 years as their laborers have always been extremely hard-working and competent (it was about “cleanliness" which this silly video tries to state). Now the anti-China hate has come again as China's economy is returning to pre-colonial levels. Throughout most of history China has always been one of the richest nations on Earth. What we're seeing in the West right now is not actually Anti-Asian hate. It is Anti-China hate. The problem is dumb f***ing racists don't know that Asians aren't all Chinese and therefore all of y'all are getting beat-up/killed over this anti-China fervor pushed by Western gov'ts and their lapdog media. NOcds itself pushes anti-China hate by always boosting anti-China youtubers such as Serpentza, China-Uncensored (Falun Gong media), China in Focus (also Falun gong media) etc etc to the top of search results. If you'd like an on-the-ground look at China you can drop by my channel where I make vlogs and also some news type vids.

  • Who is attacking Asians? Look at the percentages. Where are Asians being attacked? Certainly not in red states. You discussed how they are being portrayed in the media, but by whom? And, why is it that the trend of Asians voting in larger numbers for left and progressive politicians is a good thing? Which famous progressive leader of the last hundred years was not a flaming racist? What a slanted misleading POS post.

Also a Chinese restaurant that we would go to all the time, we knew most of the family and workers well and even had our "own" spot, was harassed and threatened so much and so bad that they were forced to sell it to another family and they moved out of the state. We need to stop the ridiculous hatred of someone just because of how they look.

  • I love the encouragement of local and grassroots efforts instead of just focusing on creating laws. Sometimes it seems we lean too heavily on politics, laws, and government to attempt to correct something when in reality, it's the local, person to person, coming together, individual changes that really make a difference. If we start to change individually, there will be less need for those laws at all.

  • Yet even with knowing all these, many still can't changing their biased value system, that are so ingrained in their minds and almost impossible to change. I'm not saying one should instantly change their view to hating America or White people. That's just as irrational as racism itself. But be more objective when looking at things. Such as the cold war rhetoric that America is push with the new rising power is fuelling the anti-asian hate. Understand the fundamental motives behind people's actions is the first step to solving any social or political problems.

    • The cultural foundations doesn‘t change the fact that it is colorist and problematic. Being able to recognize that that notion of beauty/purity also causes that projection to be placed on skin tone on a massively systemic level globally is massively important. It may not have started as a racial issue, but it has always been divisive.
