Japan, Social Engineering & The Blatant Depopulation Agenda

Renegade Editor’s Note: While we focus primarily on the genocide of the White race here, a similar agenda is at work in Japan. A few years ago, there was even a half-black Miss Universe Japan, in a contest organized by a jewess who worked for Donald Trump. I guess that is what the Japanese get for allying with those racist “Nazis” back in WWII. At least they can enjoy their waifu pillows alongside the AltRight.

By Juan Matus (2016)

The destruction of Japan and extinction of its population is the desired consequence, or by product, of the fact that Japan serves as the laboratory for the ruling social engineers. The country is used as the primary testing ground for nuclear and biochemical warfare technology, social engineering, climate engineering and more, for a very long time. As a result of the relentless socially engineered attacks on this society we can clearly see the demographic and social results of it. Anyone who thinks this is just the result of a normal evolution process is clearly totally out of his/her mind. The social engineers use the Japanese model as a blueprint for the rest of the world and we can see the exact same tendencies evolving in the West.

Depopulation in overdrive

Depopulation and gender warin Japan blatantly in your face: A January 2012 estimate by The National Institute of Population and Social Security Research showed that in 2060, Japan’s population will number about 80 million, about 35 percent less from the 2010 level. The result of the coming health crisis due to the ongoing geo engineering/Fukushima/food poisoning assaults, EMF’s etc, which will spike this trend, is not included in this estimation.

Almost half of the population in Japan is ‘not interested anymore in any form of sexual contact’. Like in the West, this is partly the result of the destroyed sex drive in both genders due to the extremely low testosterone levels. GMO food, EMF exposure and other chemical exposures are the main cause of this alarming decline. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex at all. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Again this is absolutely abnormal, and is the result of the relentless social engineering/Mind Control programs. The problem is that the left brain imprisoned scientism priests do not include Social engineering/Mind Control or any other “conspiracy” argument as being the real source of  the insane manifestations in the Japanese society. Let alone that the depopulation agenda’s and/or the gender war are included in the diagnose. That is because they themselves are in a deep brainwashed state. They probably need more research on the “celibacy syndrome”.

Further robotizing

Japan’s under-40s has rapidly lost interest in conventional relationships and any form of intimacy. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking the past decades, is projected to dramatic plunge a further one-third by 2060. A clear indication of depopulation at work as this has nothing to do with natural demographic fluctuations. Japan, is experiencing an engineered flight from human intimacy” – which is a clear goal of the psychopathic dark social engineers. Besides depopulation advantages for the social engineers, the result of these assaults is that humanity is further weakened. Most people, while being in their fragmented self obsessed reality, take this disorder on themselves and see themselves as the problem (which they are in a certain way). One begins to see themselves as a failure, and due to the lack of any knowledge what we are exposed to today, their lives are being destroyed. Aoyama, a japanese therapist, says her first task with most of her clients is encouraging them “to stop apologizing for their own physical existence”. This Mind Controlled pathological state is also visible in the rest of the world.

The number of single people has reached a record high. A survey in 2011 found that over 60% of unmarried men and 50% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship, a rise of almost 10% from five years earlier. Another study found that a third of people under 30 (!) had never dated at all. (These figures are probably much higher for the same sex categories) Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan – a country mostly free of religious morals – sex fares no better. Again, and let these shocking figures sink in: almost half of the population is not interested in or despised sexual contact”.

Learning to love: sex counsellor Ai Aoyama, with one of her clients and her dog Marilyn.

Many people who seek her out, says Aoyama, are deeply confused(mind controlled). “Some want a partner, some prefer being single, but few relate to normal love and marriage.” However, the engineered pressure to conform to Japan’s anachronistic family model of salaryman husband and stay-at-home wife remains. “People don’t know where to turn. They’re coming to me because they think that, there’s something wrong with them.”

Due to any lack of knowledge of social engineering, official alarmism doesn’t help at all. Fewer babies were born here in 2012 than any year on record. Kunio Kitamura, head of the JFPA, claims the demographic crisis is so serious that Japan “might eventually perish into extinction”. The dream of the socially engineering ruling “elite”.

Japan’s under-40s won’t go forth and multiply out of duty, as postwar generations did. It is battling a lost battle against the effects of the relentless ongoing attacks of the social/geo engineers. They suffer from the nuclear-destruction-scarred psyche of 2011’s earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima radioactive meltdown trauma’s. There is no going back. “Both men and women say to me they don’t see the point of love. They don’t believe it can lead anywhere,” says Aoyama. “Relationships have become too hard.” This mindset is the exact goal of the dark occult social engineers who strive to a robotic society that is based on the opposite of Love, which is fear. A trauma based Mind controlled population governed by a sick satanic One World government. The last phase is unfolding as we speak and in plain sight for those who want to see it.

Marriage has become a minefield of unattractive choices. Japanese men have become less career-driven, and less solvent, as lifetime job security has waned. Japanese women have become more ” independent” (more state dependent) and ambitious by social engineering c.q. Mind Control. Aoyama says the sexes, especially in Japan’s giant cities, are “spiraling away from each other”. Lacking long-term shared goals, many are turning to the form of casual sex, short-term trysts and the usual sick social engineering tools: online porn, virtual-reality “girlfriends”, anime cartoons, massive smart technology, insane TV programming, and a hyper media jungle in general.

A  significant part of Japanese men suffers from the effects of social withdrawal to a pathological extreme. They are recovering and are taking the first steps to rejoining the outside world. Of the estimated 13 million (!)unmarried people in Japan who currently live with their parents, around three million are over the age of 30. A significant number of people can’t relate to the opposite sex physically or in any other way. The exact goal of the war on the sacred bond between man and woman.

No sex in the city: (from left) friends Emi Kuwahata, 23, and Eri Asada, 22, shopping in Tokyo.

Some men can’t get sexually aroused unless they watch female robots on a game similar to Power Rangers. And a lot of men, just like in the West, can’t have any sexual activity without the sight of robotic, sterile and women degrading porn.

Engineered aversion to marriage and intimacy in modern life is an important element in the war on the sacred bond between Man and Woman as this is the foundation of our society. This is absolutely not unique to Japan. Also in the west is the same obsessive and pathological preoccupation with digital technology visible. But endless Japanese committees and western left brain imprisoned scientists, who keep focussing only on the symptoms, have failed to look at the source of the country’s socially disabled mind controlled-shy youth. In the eyes of the shortsighted and willfully ignorant officials, the decision to stay single often makes perfect sense. That willful ignorance for the elephant in the room which IS social engineering, in this time of information, is nothing less than EVIL. These trends are in no way proper diagnosed as depravation of the collective consciousness as a result of massive Mind Control programs by the ignorant scientists.

Celebrating enslavement

Japanese females with multiple university degrees, are avoiding romantic attachments so they can focus on work. Tomita: “A boyfriend proposed to me three years ago. I turned him down when I realized I cared more about my job. After that, I lost interest in dating. It became awkward when the question of the future came up.”

Tomita says a woman’s chances of promotion in Japan stop dead as soon as she marries. “The bosses assume you will get pregnant.” Once a woman does have a child, she adds, the long, inflexible hours become unmanageable. “You have to resign. You end up being a housewife with no independent income. It’s not an option for women like me.” The perfect slave mentality.

Around 70% of Japanese women leave their jobs after their first child.  Married working women are demonised as oniyome, or “devil wives”.

Tomita says things would have to improve “dramatically” to compel her to become a working wife and mother. “I have a great life. I go out with my girl friends – career women like me – to French and Italian restaurants. I buy stylish clothes and go on nice holidays. I love my independence. Tomita sometimes has one-night stands with men she meets in bars, but she says sex is not a priority, either. To embrace your own slavery and think you are free, is the overall state of consciousness of the masses in the West as well.”

It gets worse;  Japan’s Institute of Population and Social Security reports an astonishing 90% of young women believe that staying single is “preferable to what they imagine marriage to be like”.

Another example of an socially engineered mindset:

Satoru Kishino, 31, belongs to a large tribe of men under 40 who are engaging in a kind of passive rebellion against traditional Japanese masculinity. Men like Kishino feel that the pressure on them to be breadwinning economic warriors for a wife and family is unrealistic and ridiculous. They are rejecting the pursuit of both career and romantic success.

“It’s too troublesome,” says Kishino, when asked why he’s not interested in having a girlfriend. “I don’t earn a huge salary to go on dates and I don’t want the responsibility of a woman hoping it might lead to marriage. He defines himself as “a heterosexual man for whom relationships and sex are unimportant”.

This engineered phenomenon emerged a few years ago with the airing of a Japanese TV show. The lead character in Otomen (“Girly Men”) was a tall martial arts champion, the king of tough-guy cool. Secretly, he loved baking cakes, collecting “pink sparkly things” and knitting clothes for his stuffed animals. To the tooth-sucking horror of Japan’s corporate elders, the show struck a powerful chord with the generation they spawned. (“Bruce Jenner” style social engineering from the same think tanks)

Kishino(31), who works at a fashion accessories company as a designer and manager, doesn’t knit. But he does like cooking and cycling, and platonic friendships. “I find some of my female friends attractive but I’ve learned to live without sex. Emotional entanglements are too complicated,” he says. “I can’t be bothered.”

Romantic apathy aside, Kishino, like Tomita, says he enjoys his active single (empty, engineered) life. Japan’s cities are full of ridiculous conveniences made for singles, from stand-up noodle bars to capsule hotels to the ubiquitous convenience stores, with their shelves of individually wrapped rice balls and disposable underwear. These things originally evolved for salarymen on the go, but there are now female-only cafés, hotel floors and even the odd apartment block. And Japan’s cities are extraordinarily crime-free. The perfect new world order cities.

Following the very successful social engineering experiments in Japan, the same satanic techniques are tuned up in the rest of the world as we speak. Many of the shifts in Japan are occurring in other advanced nations, too. Across urban Asia, Europe and America, people are marrying later or not at all, birth rates are falling, single-occupant households are on the rise and, in countries where economic recession is worst, young people are living at home. Astoundingly, brain dead demographers argue that a distinctive set of non relevant factors is accelerating these trends.

“Gradually but relentlessly, Japan is evolving into a genderless type of society whose contours and workings have only been contemplated in science fiction. With a vast army of older people and an ever-dwindling younger generation, Japan may become a “pioneer people” where individuals who never marry exist in significant numbers, according to well respected demographers. Totally ignorant of the reality.

Deeply mind controlled

Kuwahata, a fashion graduate, is in a casual relationship with a man 13 years her senior. “We meet once a week to go clubbing,” she says. “I don’t have time for a regular boyfriend. I’m trying to become a fashion designer.” Asada, who studied economics, has no interest in love. “I gave up dating three years ago. I don’t miss boyfriends or sex. I don’t even like holding hands.”

Emi(23) and her friend Eri(22) say they share the usual singleton passions of clothes, music and shopping, and have hectic social lives. But, smart phones in hand, they also admit they spend far more time communicating with their friends via online social networks than seeing them in the flesh. Eri adds she’s spent “the past two years” obsessed with a virtual game that lets her act as a manager of a sweet shop. The goal of the psychopathic technocrats, who are masters in social engineering due to their occult knowledge of the human consciousness and how to manipulate it,  is that the in the future, relationships will be largely technology driven. “Japan has developed incredibly sophisticated virtual worlds and online communication systems. Its smart phone apps are the world’s most imaginative”. Trauma based mind controlled populations that are trapped in the reptilian brain, and in an overcrowded environment with limited physical space, have one common dominant drive. That is the need to escape, and what better than into private, virtual fake worlds, to become the happy zombie.

The Japanese blueprint is coming to the west and that is becoming more and more visible. Finger pointing on how “weird” Japanese society seems, is nothing but blindness for our own darkness, we have to do the Selfwork, the deep shadow self work, gain self knowledge and most importantly; ACT accordingly.

Pentagon Confirms Chinese Fired Lasers at U.S. Pilots – Two American Aircraft taken down by Chinese Military Laser Weapons.

The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that Chinese nationals fired lasers near a military base in east Africa against U.S. military aircraft in the region, injuring several pilots.

Pentagon Press Secretary Dana White said the U.S. government made diplomatic protests to the Chinese government over several recent incidents of laser firings near China’s first overseas military base at Djibouti.

“These are very serious incidents. There have been two minor injuries. This activity poses a threat to our airmen,” White told reporters.

“We have formally demarched the Chinese government, and we’ve requested that the Chinese investigate these incidents,” she added.

The number of incidents is “more than two but less than ten” and the laser firings took place in recent weeks, White said.

White said the Pentagon is confident that Chinese nationals were behind the laser firings but did not elaborate on the intelligence linking Beijing to the incidents.

She declined to speculate on the Chinese motive behind the laser attacks.

“I believe there have been cases where this has happened previously,” White said. “But what this started was these last few weeks we decided to become very serious about it, and we have demarched the Chinese, and we’ve asked for the investigation.”

China’s government has not commented on the incidents. A Chinese military expert told the state-run Global Times newspaper that the U.S. accusations that China used a laser weapon in Djibouti was “groundless.”

China opened the military base in Djibouti last year and plans to deploy some 400 troops there.

China’s government has asserted that the base is merely a logistics hub for anti-piracy operations as well as to support China’s international infrastructure project called Belt and Road Initiative.

The U.S. government regards the Chinese base as part of Beijing’s efforts to project military power around the world.

The Djibouti incidents appear similar to the 1997 incident involving a Russian merchant ship that was shadowing a Navy missile submarine and fired a laser on a Canadian surveillance helicopter.

The laser damaged the eyes of the Navy Lt. Jack Daly and Canadian pilot Captain Patrick Barnes near Washington state and was covered up by the administration of President Bill Clinton.

China and the United States have battled over international trade and finance after the Trump administration announced it will impose tariffs on China for its unfair trade practices.

The U.S. and Chinese militaries also have squared off in the South China Sea where China is seeking to take control of the strategic waterway. The U.S. military has been seeking to counter the illegal claim by sending ships and aircraft near disputed islands in the sea that have been militarized in recent years by China.

A Federal Aviation Administration notice to airmen reported April 14 that “there have been multiple lazing events involving a high power laser” near the Chinese military base.

“Use extreme caution when transiting near this area,” the notice states. “If a laser is seen in or near Djibouti, notify immediately tower…”

The notice also said U.S. military air crews were to contact military air controllers.

In one incident, air crew members flying aboard a C-130 transport suffered two minor eye injuries after exposure to what was described as “military-grade laser beams” that appear to have been fired from the Chinese base.

The laser incidents followed U.S. military exercises last month off the coast of Djibouti called Alligator Dagger. The exercise was canceled April 5 after two separate air mishaps, including the crash of a Marine Corps Harrier jump jet and a CH-53 helicopters, in Djibouti.

About 4,000 U.S. personnel are stationed at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti. The base has been used as a major launch point for U.S. military and special operations commando raids in the region.

The Chinese military base in the country is located about a mile from Camp Lemonnier and is Beijing’s first overseas military base and has raised security concerns because it is located very close to the U.S. military base there.

The Washington Free Beacon disclosed in 2015 that China’s military has deployed several types of hand-held blinding laser weapons.

The weapons, according to state-run Chinese media, are used to interfere and damage laser and night vision equipment.

Use of the weapons violates China’s announced commitment to a section of the 1998 U.N. Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons that bans the use of blinding lasers in combat.

The Chinese have marketed four types of laser guns, designated the BBQ-905 Laser Dazzler Weapon, the WJG-2002 Laser Gun, the PY132A Blinding Laser Weapon, and the PY131A Blinding Laser Weapon.

Marine Corps Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, commander of the U.S. Africa Command, warned in congressional testimony in March that China is seeking to expand and possibly take over the strategic port in Djibouti, which owes Beijing an estimated $1.2 billion in construction debt.

China operates a naval port and “multi-purpose” port that offloads containers from freighters.

Waldhauser said a Chinese takeover of ports in Djibouti would have “significant consequences” for U.S. military operations there.

“We are not naive to think that some of the activities the Chinese are doing in terms of counterintelligence there are taking place, but it just means that we have to be cautious,” Waldhauser told the House Armed Services Committee March 6. “We have to be on guard for that type of situation.”

Pentagon: Chinese military producing 42,000 drones

The US Department of Defense says in an annual report that the Chinese military is set to build nearly 42,000 land-based and sea-based drones.

It added that China is also developing long-range Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for intelligence gathering and bombing attacks.

“The acquisition and development of longer-range UAVs will increase China’s ability to conduct long-range reconnaissance and strike operations,” the Pentagon said in the report on Friday.

The report — entitled Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China 2015 — shows concerns from the US military about China’s growing military power.

“China is advancing its development and employment of UAVs,” the report said. “Some estimates indicate China plans to produce upwards of 41,800 land- and sea-based unmanned systems, worth about $10.5 billion, between 2014 and 2023.”

The report was handed to the US Congress for further assessment.

The US military also noted in the 2015 report that China has been adding UAVs into military exercises in recent years, including one drill in the East China Sea in 2013.

The Pentagon also expressed alarm over the scale of the Chinese army’s modernization campaign that seeks to depend on self-sufficiency rather than important defense equipment from the US or its allies.

The report concluded that the People’s Liberation Army Air Force “is pursuing modernization on a scale unprecedented in its history.”

In recent years, the Pentagon claimed that China has been building more advanced weapons that could target US interests in the future.

The US has expressed concern that the US might be losing its military superiority in areas such as fighter jets, missile systems and cyber warfare in the coming years.

Military spending worldwide amounts to $1.75 trillion and Washington is responsible for more than one third of all military spending.

China Putting RAILGUNS On Ships

Adrian Sol

Daily Stormer
Febuary 4, 2017

America is getting straight-up rail-cucked.

China is one-upping America in terms of cool sci-fi shit, and that should make you very, very angry.

Railguns are the sort of thing you’d expect to see on spaceships – or Gundams. It’s the manifest destiny of the White man to start using railguns to shoot down alien motherships or repress colonial insurrections.

If it weren’t for the Jews squandering all our resources on brown people and women, we’d all have railguns on our cars by now – never mind our battleships.

Big Think:

China has put a railgun on a warship. That sentence alone might trigger the heebie-jeebies in some members of the American military. It’s the first time any nation has ever put such a powerful gun on a warship. But there’s more to the story than that.

That’s… so embarrassing.

America’s been working on railgun tech for years.

And yet, somehow, these shifty slant-eyes managed to beat us to the punch.

The physics behind the railgun are particularly impressive. Since the specially designed “bullets” are 22lbs each and are capable of traveling about 100 miles at Mach 7 speeds (approx. 5,300mph), the bullets have to be fired with an extreme amount of energy: about 32 megajoules. That’s about enough energy to propel a 1 ton object at 566mph, so, to give you a rough idea of how powerful this thing is: it’s like giving something the size of a basketball the speed (and ultimately destructive power) of a 747.

Yes. It’s awesome, and I want one.

Yet the navy, under the pretense of it “using too much power,” dropped the ball big-time.

If it uses too much power, just put a nuclear reactor on the ship, jeez. It’s like these people don’t realize just how cool railguns are.

Trivial things like power consumption mean nothing before the almighty power of the railgun.

While we can’t do much (save for interchanging the lyrics to Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun” to “China’s got a gun”), we can rest somewhat assured that the railgun might not actually work. Fancy though it may be, it’s not easy to get a machine this powerful to fire at a target. The American military had up until fairly recently working on railgun technology but since dropped it in favor of more short-range weaponry; it looks like China was watching pretty closely and picked up the ball where America either lost interest or lost focus.


So, should anyone be worried? Maybe. It could be a while until the railgun actually gets used, and if certain Big Thinkers are to be believed this is more-so the kind of show-off weapon that is built mostly as a deterrent and/or status symbol.

Of course it’s a show-off weapon!

Having a railgun is like having a friggin’ death star! You get it so that people know not to mess with you!

Let’s not build a death star. After all, it uses too much power. It’s just a show-off weapon.

Our military seriously needs to get their priorities straight. We need new leadership which understands the pressing need for cool sci-fi weaponry.

Diversity: North Korean Minority in Japan Still Hardcore Nationalist After Four Generations

Adrian Sol
Daily Stormer
November 6, 2017

You can take the Korean out of Korea, but you can’t take the Korea out of the Korean. Or something like that.

Ok, so here’s how it works.

You can take any random jungle primitive out of his backwater country, bring him to the United States, and with only minor encouragements, he’ll promptly become a computer analyst, embrace secular humanism and start worshiping the constitution and the founding fathers.

That’s a fact.

And if any part of this process doesn’t work out, there can only be one possible explanation: invisible, brutal, systemic racism on the part of the existing population.

This is why the fourth generation Korean immigrants are now completely integrated into Japanese society.

Oh, wait.

Japan Times:

The children, gathered in rows on a school field in Tokyo, crouch and then reach up in unison, waving red, white and blue banners to form a North Korean flag as the school band plays an emotional rendition of a song for their “motherland.”

This is Japan? And they’re not wearing gym bloomers? Sacrilege!

They are third- and fourth-generation descendants of Koreans, including many who were forcibly taken from their homeland to labor in mines and factories during Japan’s colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula from 1910 until its 1945 defeat in World War II.

Though many have become citizens of Japan or South Korea, the students’ families remain loyal to their heritage, choosing to send their children to one of some 60 private schools aligned with North Korea, teaching the culture and history.

Despite recent North Korean missile launches, including two that flew over Japan, students and graduates of the schools say they take pride in their community and view it as a haven from the discrimination they face in Japan.

“We do things together, and we help each other,” Ha Yong Na, a 16-year-old mix of giggles and poise, said as she demonstrated her Korean dance moves with a classmate.

Here, portraits of the late North Korean leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il hang on classroom walls. Teachers instruct in the language of their ancestry, and Japanese and English are offered as foreign languages. The cafeteria serves kimchee for lunch.

About 450,000 ethnic Koreans live in Japan, and several thousand attend such schools.

Koreans and the Japanese are a hell of a lot closer to each other than Blacks or Moslems are to us, and yet they’ve completely failed to assimilate after decades of living among each other.

Really makes those gears spin.

But then again, maybe everything’ll work out if we just wait for a few hundred years. After all, Blacks have been in America for over 200 years now.


Well, maybe a few thousand years will do the trick, then. After all, we’ve got a great success story with the Jews fully integrating into our society.

It took over 2000 years, but now they’re fully integrated.

Never mind that last example.

The point is, foreign racial groups are sure to integrate at some point. I mean, we still have at least 10100 years left until the heat death of the universe. I’m sure if we’re patient, we’ll figure it out.

Straight Black Men Are the White People of Black People

David Jacobs via YouTube screenshot

It feels counterintuitive to suggest that straight black men as a whole possess any sort of privilege—particularly the type of privilege created for and protected by whiteness. In America, we are near or at the bottom in every relevant metric determining quality of life. Our arrest and incarceration rates, our likelihood of dying a violent death, our likelihood of graduating high school and attending college, our employment rates, our average net worth, our likelihood of surviving past 70—I could continue, but the point is clear.

But assessing our privilege (or lack thereof) on these facts considers only our relationship with whiteness and with America. Intraracially, however, our relationship to and with black women is not unlike whiteness’s relationship to us. In fact, it’s eerily similar.

Asian Americans: 10 Warning Signs That Show You’re Siding With Whiteness

Person looking upset with hand on furrowed brows.

I grew up thinking I was white.

When I was 8 years old, I would play House with my best friend, a cisgender South Asian girl. I was Eric, and she was Ashley —  we were a quintessential heteronormative white couple.

I would pretend to read huge books in a matter of seconds — really, skimming dictionaries and then proudly looking up at my (girl)friend for affirmation — while she primped her hair in the mirror.

As it turns out, many years later, I’ve realized that I’m a trans, gender-expansive South Asian and have lots of problems with cisgender white boys named Eric.

But being a non-Black South Asian from an upper-class immigrant household, I assimilated so hard that I came to identify almost completely with the white people around me.

This view of myself drove a wedge between my family and me; I grew distant from my parents when I became subsumed in my friends and caught up in the belief that they were too culturally different to understand me in all of my “white” Americanness.

It also led me to experience a comfort with whiteness which I now am realizing has been hugely self-destructive for my personal growth, self-acceptance, and ability to engage with other people of color.

I want to speak to those of you who are interested in thinking about your race more critically, and understanding how we as Asian Americans can be complicit in siding with whiteness.

In sharing, I intend to list qualities that I have seen in myself and the Asian Americans I have grown up around so that we can check ourselves before somebody else has to.

Let’s Get To It

The category of Asian American is way too vast to capture in one listicle — dozens of countries of origin, numerous races, citizenship statuses, religions, and varying income levels and degrees of historical discrimination.

Instead, I’ll direct this article at those of you who are more similar to me: non-Black Asian Americans with socio-economic privilege.

As Asian Americans with privilege, it’s easy to side with whiteness. With our privileges, we become — as I jokingly call it when I’m alone with my thoughts — white-minded. Here’s how:
