More examples of "counter-trolling" from this former editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender:

"Men are too f–king emotional to be let out in public."

"men are innately, unintentionally garbage"

"men are fountains of meaningless garbage and they see every woman as an open landfill for their thoughts"

"Being a straight woman is like being attracted to garbage heaps made of radioactive arsenic."

"the regulation of marriage is state protectionism due to a long case history of men being garbage"

"This is why I am vocal in my objection to Sarah Jeong having any position at the New York Times. The position, properly filled requires someone with both competence and a conscience, Sarah has the first in excess and but not a shred of the second. I don’t think anyone should support someone who does not seem to be an actual believer in the values they espouse, but is instead a follower of convenience and absolutely comfortable it betraying those values when it serves her own ends."
https://medium.com/@therealsexycyborg/shenzhen-tech-girl-naomi-wu-my-experience-with-sarah-jeong-jason-koebler-and-vice-magazine-3f4a32fda9b5

From what I gather, Naomi Wu is some kind of advocate for women in tech. She has a channel on YouTube where she works on her own projects. Vice News wanted to interview her and write an article about her. Wu made it clear that she did not want the article to contain anything about her personal life. There was a rumor being spread on Reddit that her foreigner husband was the real brains behind her projects. Wu was afraid of being perceived as a puppet of a foreigner and thus facing serious repercussions for bringing shame on China. Vice News initially agreed to her request, but in a follow-up interview on Skype they decided to confront her about the Reddit rumor. Sarah Jeong got involved at some point. She laughed off Wu’s concerns. She said in a tweet that Chinese culture and Korean culture are basically the same so there should be nothing to worry about as far as interracial relationships go. In another tweet she denied that there had been any kind of agreement between Vice News and Wu about the boundaries of the article.

Trump didn't collapse at Ground Zero on the anniversary of 9/11 after dismissing concerns about his health as a conspiracy theory and then emerge hours later in bizzarro sunglasses and a Star Trek ambassador's outfit and waving erratically at the crowd.

Trump was right- she lacked the stamina.

Never. There's about a 50-50 split between conservatives and liberals here and we all regularly go back and forth.

"The most significant feature of Sarah Jeong, the New York Times’ embattled new editorial board member, is not that she is a 'racist,' as her critics put it. It is that she is an entirely typical product of the contemporary academy....

"The key features of Jeong’s worldview are an obsession with whiteness and its alleged sins; a commitment to the claim that we live in a rape culture; and a sneering contempt for objectivity and truth-seeking. These are central tenets of academic victimology. From the moment freshmen arrive on a college campus, they are inundated by the message that they are either the bearers of white privilege or its victims....

"Jeong’s magnum opus of academic victimology is a long 2014 blog post on the Rolling Stone campus-rape hoax. Written after the Rolling Stone had retracted its sensational and wholly fictional story on a gruesome fraternity rape at the University of Virginia, Jeong’s post tortuously and often incoherently explains why it is imperative to continue believing the pseudo-victim, Jackie. The effort to discredit the Rolling Stone story (a process otherwise known as belated fact-checking) represents the patriarchy’s campaign to deny the existence of rape culture, she writes....

"The only interesting thing about Jeong’s otherwise banal regurgitations of academic theory is her status as an Asian social-justice warrior who identifies with POCs (persons of color) rather than with whites: For the enforcers of academic 'diversity,' however, Asians do not count as POCs; they are in the same sorry basket of deplorables as whites. Whether at selective colleges and universities such as Harvard or selective K–12 schools such as New York City’s Stuyvesant High School, the diversocrats seek to artificially suppress the number of Asians in order to make space for officially designated 'students of color.' By this definition, to be a student of color is to not be academically competitive; since Asians are more than competitive, they cannot be students of color.... Likewise, in the tech sector, when companies subject their employees to implicit-bias training and harangues about diversity, they do not count their many Asian employees as proof that their managers are not discriminating against applicants 'of color.' "

I agree that the left has begun ousting Asians from the "oppressed" POC clique. I think in the future they will be viewed more and more like white people- a group that benefits from unearned privilege. I saw Jeong's tweet defending the UVA gang rape hoax. It was clear she had no interest in being fair to the accused even after serious doubts had been raised about the validity of the story.

"The people who called BS on this story called BS because they couldn't believe nice white college boys were monsters."

As Morgan Freeman said the best way to stop racism is to stop talking about it. However this is obviously the last thing journalists/writers/activists/diversity officers/university professors/community leaders etc... would do as it would deprive them all of a living, so it's very much here to stay.

Many on the left think of the Libertarian Party in the States as being inherently right-wing, especially for their economic policies. But, both politically and economically, they are pretty indistinguishable from the views of "Classical Liberalism."

So if people stop talking about the air quality in Seoul, it will miraculously get better?

If people stop talking about crime it will go away and the police won't be able to make a living?

That you and Freeman don't want to deal with racism doesn't make it any less real.

Predjudice plus power is such garbage.  I mean no one believes it.  It’s just so obvious.
There’s no mathematical formula to prove that black or Asian people cannot be racist.  But there are a lot of cases that prove that many of them are.   Just poll them .  If they say whites are evil, is that not racist? Farrakhan teaches that whites were born of a failed science experiment and have to be eliminated from the earth. 
You says whites have power, but did the police officers who were brutally beaten, one murdered, by Farrakhan and his followers after being lured into a mosque in 1972, have any power?   Do you have power if you are walking through the worst neighborhoods in Chicago, or are simply a white minority among a crowd?
Until the left admits that it has a problem with racist people of color, I will never vote for them again.

Korean in Korea: N-word. (That's racist)

12 hour flight to New York

Korean in NYC: N-word (Well, you see, the white people..............)

Gogators is basically saying I can say whatever the hell I want to about the locals here. Every racist word under the sun and I can't be racist. I can only be prejudiced.

I've told him before and I'll tell him again, prejudice people are shitbags. Racist people are shitbags.

Potato/Potahto
If you don't want to make the effort to understand, just say so. Hold tight to your prejudice against thinking.
