Absolutely deplorable human beings that employ these domestic workers at close to slave wages merely to be status symbols. 

Yup...all those sick Western expats exploiting Asian domestic workers.

"Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence" don't come close to telling the story. An accurate production would be too violent and bloody even by today's standards.

Couldn't be as violent and/or bloody as any production of the Rape of Nanking right? Yeah, I doubt it would be.

28 wounded, none seriously. what were they shooting with, bb guns?

It was a rap concert, so they likely held their guns side grip.

The biggest problem with most Chinese copies whether they are phones, buildings, or toys is that they are putting consumers at risk all over the world.

Have ZTE and OnePlus phones. Have Lenovo laptop. All great and working nicely.

But, as they say, haters gonna hate.

Just like Chinatown, Kalais and the muslims town in the UK, places that wont integrate with the surrounding towns.

Just because there are Chinatowns, doesn't mean all Chinese immigrants live there and won't integrate. Likely most of the residents there are recent immigrants. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc generation ones are likely well integrated and disbursed.

If he wasn't 'identified' that means he was either black, latino, or arab. If he had been white it would be in the news everywhere.

What if he was Asian (East/Southeast)?

He is just one terrorist suspect on UK's terror list of 3,000 or so. Many, many have similar stories. And as we know now, there are many dangerous Muslims who arent even on that list. So how long should that list really be?

Agree. Have not read about any Chinese, Swiss, Finish, Japanese or Singaporean terrorist making trouble in the UK.

Posted in: China overtakes Japan on S Koreans' worst countries list See in context

I have always thought Japan and South Korea have much more to gain by being closer. There is history yes but they are more similar than either are to China.

I would say all 3 have lots of similarities, as both SK and Jpn borrowed a lot from Chinese culture over the past 2000+ years.

Posted in: British police arrest seven in raids over deadly Westminster attack See in context

I guess we are just supposed to not care who actually did this, what their name is or where they are from. I have seen no update to the story since I saw a description of a 40s Asian burly guy with a beard. I wonder when we will hear how police have enough evidence to arrest 6 additional people already and what their personal details are. Guess just doesn't matter.

Hope people outside UK don't equate Asian with Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Singaporean, Taiwanese, etc.

Aren't Ukrainians and Russians pretty much exactly the same? I've met both, I didn't see any difference.

Could be said of the same about Mainland Chinese, Taiwanese & Hong Kongers.

Posted in: Diversity in tech: Lots of attention, little progress See in context

Seems like diversity only matters when only blacks are underrepresented - e.g. last year's Academy (Oscar) Award nominees. This year no uproar, as many black actors/actresses are nominated. Can't say the same for Asian-Americans ones, though.

to divert the Chinese people's attention away from the fact that their government don't know what the hell they are doing - about anything

I guess lifting the most amount of people out of poverty in the history of humankind is an example of not knowing "what the hell they are doing"? Wigga, please!

continue to push the narrative that blacks are incapable of hate crimes.

Don't tell Asian-Americans this. In cities like Philadelphia, there has been a huge surge of black on Asian crimes. Rarely any Asian on black crimes, tho.

I wonder what America's reaction would be if Syria and Russia were arming and funding militia groups in America opposed to the federal government?

Same response as if China or Russia were to sail a navy battle group in the west coast of US. Even in international waters, the it's a no-no, since only the US can sail it's warships anywhere in the world.

They need to switch form coal to nuclear, ASAP. And once the skies clear up they can start building solar farms.

Posted in: Italy earthquake death toll rises to 247 See in context

Poor people. It's one thing to have an earthquake in Japan, where we're used to it, and our infrastructure is built to handle some fairly significant shaking. It's another thing to have an earthquake in a country where they have no experience in the matter, and their infrastructure collapses.

Best to read up on Italy being earthquake-prone. Google is your friend. The Italian authorities need to get their infrastructure up to standards, Don't tell me they don't know their country sits on/near crucial fault line?

But if there is even one smallest fact that just can be used in the propaganda war against Russia, then the Western media machine roars into action

I think first target of Western media bashing is usually China, then second is Russia, followed by North Korea & Iran. Sometimes throw in the occasional gang rapes & open defecation issues in India for good measure.

Posted in: Will IS militants target Japan next? See in context

Despite the title, it shows that 4% of Indonesians support IS, despite the fact that they are clearly monsters. Out of 300 million Indonesians that translates into 12 million supporting IS. That's frightening stuff. It was 11% in Malaysia, which doesn't exactly encourage me to vacation there. The only majority-Muslim countries to show 0% support for IS were Lebanon and (ironically) Iran.

I would still feel safer vacationing in Malaysia than Iran, to be honest.

It's less likely when you're white. You can point your gun at police and come away with your life if you're white.

Posted in: Trump says U.S. should consider profiling Muslims See in context

too many now from certain countries, do not identify with the USA or want to identify themselves as Americans. That includes certain Muslims, Mexicans, Chinese, and others that has already been identified.

For Asian-Americans, the issue is they are perceived as not Americans by the public...no matter how many generations their families have been in the US. They're stereotyped as "perpetual foreigners" for this reason.
