Ivory-tower Asians are getting a PhD in projection.
Class bias infects the thought processes of too many people. I'm a 62-yr-old "white" woman, retired US Navy and former landlady. A rental we held onto for almost 2 decades and then sold was waterfront and in a gated community. We could never afford to live there and we went without in order to make the long-term investment, but our home is in a rural area where there's much poverty. The security alarm on the rental condo (empty at the time) was accidentally tripped during an inspection and I had to go out there to meet the sheriff. He was so careful talking to me I almost laughed. My perception was that he was going out of his way not to offend me. He must have thought I had a team of lawyers at beck and call. On the other hand, I've had encounters with law enforcement in the rural area due to the crime in our area and I get treated by about half of them as if I'm automatically considered to be a problem and a criminal. There's zero doubt in my mind that 99% of the problems in our society are class biases masquerading as "white adjacent." Great article!
Superb insights. I look forward to seeing how society unfolds regarding the burgeoning Asian/Jewish intersection. I am Jewish and fellow politically conservative Jews do their best to "pass" as progressive liberals. Or non Jewish altogether. It is just so much safer politically at the very least.
Great Substack! Subbed.
Guess what? White people don't like being physically attacked, either. That's why a lot of them want more policing. No different from Asians who don't want to be attacked. Not because of some ideological attachment to thin blue lines. Black people also don't like being attacked. Latinos too. People who live in areas where they are likely to be attacked want more policing, generally speaking. Nothing special here.
Ah, very few Americans see Jews as anything but white, you say. I think it's more complicated than that. The Jews are sometimes white and sometimes not, but never to their credit.
