My family has been in the Americas for hundreds of years, and is of various European ancestry. However, mostly I am of German descent. Based only on this, it would be incorrect to assume I’m some white supremacist, just because I have German ancestry.
What if I brought Mein Kampf to work and professed my loyalty to a Nazi group? What if I threatened to murder Jewish people? You’d be quite reasonable to assume I was racist in that case.
What if you then called the cops, after I threatened Jewish people’s lives, and they refused to do anything? What if intervening to protect a target of this Nazi caused you to be painted as the bad guy. Could you fairly call the cops racist? Yes you could.
It is true to say Red Chinese have killed tens of millions of little girls. It is true to say Red Chinese immigrant Michelle Tan spoke of killing my little girl. This specific Chinese woman. It is very clear that Michelle has lied about the situation. To the cops’ credit, I was fooled initially as well. Yet, when I come back with more information nothing is done. In fact I must wonder if they were involved in some of this.
You might feel that those girls aren’t really murdered, but what about their reproductive rights? This isn’t uncommon, legal, abortion to ensure women’s safety. It is expressly to eliminate women. Still not convinced that China trains people to believe that killing a little girl for money is acceptable?
“Suddenly, I thought I heard a slight movement in the slops pail behind me,” Miss Xinran remembers. “To my absolute horror, I saw a tiny foot poking out of the pail. The midwife must have dropped that tiny baby alive into the slops pail! I nearly threw myself at it, but the two policemen [who had accompanied me] held my shoulders in a firm grip. ‘Don’t move, you can’t save it, it’s too late.’
“‘But that’s…murder…and you’re the police!’
That is a human baby we’re reading about. Someone like Michelle might tell us to keep the peace, have some empathy for the mother. What about the baby girl? We should draw the line somewhere, and there is no way we should allow these kinds of attitudes to flourish here.
A few racist police in San Francisco not only refuse to do a thing about the situation, they make it easier for her, by removing obstacles (me) to Michelle’s quest to go after American children for money.
You see the reason right in this graph. She’s Chinese, and therefore could not possibly be a criminal. So as we see, blindly following positive stereotypes does as much damage as basing one’s actions on negative ones. I’m not saying that the police will allow harm to my daughter because she is of mixed race, just that they will ignore a Chinese perpetrator so long as there are any black people in the city which they could harass instead.
