As the title of this entry says, this is my last.
I've belatedly come to the conclusion that Asia Finest is simply the wrong forum for me. I know, I know. I should have come this conclusion long ago.
To put it bluntly, the quality of the posters here is very low. I expect a certain level of thoughtfulness and thinking skills that I just don't see on this forum. It's very sad to realize that most of you are Asian-American males who are simply not up to the level required to talk intelligently.
When I first discovered this site, I thought there was a community of Asians who would be interested in discussing issues in a serious, thoughtful way. I had no idea how wrong I was.
So, instead of wasting time trying to engage you all, I'm outta here. Bye.
Now don't get me wrong.
I am NOT advocating or encouraging that guys out there break the law and commit a felony crime.
Don't even THINK about doing something like that.
But when a report like the one below pops up, you really have wonder if rape provokes the same kind of outrage as before, given what American women have become over the years.
According to the report below, the defense is claiming that 9 women lied about the rape charge. OTOH, these women could be telling the truth. Or maybe some of what they allege are true, some are not. I don't know what happened, and I won't make any judgment either on who is guilty or innocent.
I do know that current rape laws in the US make it much easier for a woman to hit a man with a felony charge of rape, even if she bears a lot of the blame for what took place. Or even if nothing of the sort took place at all. An accusation of rape is virtually an automatic conviction for men.
I also know that if these women had not chosen to enter the professional world of modeling, which is actually a pretty sleazy business, the chances of their being in a situation where they could have been sexually assaulted would have been slim to none.
Women were much safer when traditional controls were imposed on them. By having the goal of being a stay-at-home wife with a husband (as opposed to being a career woman in order to be independent of men), women could count on being protected from threats of rape. A woman who stayed home didn't put herself in situations that might increase the chances of her being raped. And by committing herself to just one man, a woman behaved properly; she knew she had to be chaste in her demeanor towards other men so as not to give the appearance of inviting sex, and therefore putting herself at risk of being sexually assaulted.
Current rape law is a result of the feminist movement. When traditional controls on women are loosened, women become freer and independent to roam around without a man by their side, which puts them at a much higher risk of being sexually assaulted. So the more independent and free women have become, the more repressive rape laws have to be towards men.
Unfortunately, there is little men can do to reform or change the law since women (whether they identify themselves as feminist or not) will never, ever allow the current law to be changed. Many, many innocent women (and men) will have to be destroyed first before women finally realize that "gender equality" actually harms them.
Current rape law is just one more sad example of how feminist measures taken to empower women have only de-valued their worth to men -- and have even endangered their lives.

LOS ANGELES—A defense attorney for fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander told jurors Friday in closing arguments that his client should be acquitted of rape charges because his accusers are lying and seeking revenge.
"How many times did you hear 'I don't recall' from them during the trial?" asked defense attorney Leonard Levine. "I stopped counting at 300. These women lied. They lied, they exaggerated and nobody cared—but you should care."
The case now heads to the jury, which will deliberate next week accusations that Alexander raped nine females, most of them aspiring models, at his Beverly Hills apartment.
Levine said the women who testified against Alexander "invited what happened," then made up stories so they could sue Alexander after his criminal case.
Deputy District Attorney Frances Young told jurors Alexander is a "sexual predator," and should be found guilty because he humiliated and degraded naive girls who came to Hollywood with dreams of fame.
"What we heard was four male lawyers defending their male client and what we heard was a lot of misogyny," Young said. "These girls did nothing wrong. None of these girls invited what happened to them."
"This is a very sick man," Young told the jury. "He was an abuser of women who picked a profession where he would be surrounded by teenage girls."
Beverly Hills police began investigating Alexander in March 2007 when a woman reported she had been sexually assaulted
by the designer in his apartment. Before his arrest in June 2007, Alexander was featured on the TV show, "America's Next Top Model."
He now faces 27 counts, including forcible rape and committing lewd acts on a child, stemming from assaults that allegedly happened between 2001 and 2007. The alleged victims ranged in age from 14 to 21.
If convicted of all counts, Alexander faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
Don't break the law doing what you gotta do.
If Barack Obama is elected this November, a white backlash with far-reaching consequences is all but certain to follow. His background as a Marxist, anti-white "community organizer," not to mention his current ranking as the most liberal US Senator, virtually guarantees that a President Obama will do far more than any individual to awaken the racial consciousness of white people.
Just yesterday, white Americans were handed a nice dose of racial reality when Colin Powell officially endorsed Obama. It was an endorsement that could not possibly have been based on anything other than race. There is simply no logical explanation for Powell to desert John McCain, a Republican and fellow career military officer, in favor of an inexperienced man who is rated the most left-wing member of the US Senate. Any reasonably perceptive white person seeing this gets it immediately.
And even more whites will get it when they see a black man in the White House who will neither stop the flood of illegal aliens from Mexico, nor prevent those illegal aliens from enjoying welfare benefits at the white taxpayers' expense.
They will get it when they see that Obama will not stop his fellow blacks from shaking down white businesses with "racial discrimination" lawsuits.
They will get it when, under an Obama presidency, the black crime rate against whites will continue to soar without any end or solution in sight.
And they will certainly get it when a Justice Department packed with Obama loyalists continues to disproportionately prosecute whites for "hate crimes" against blacks even though the rate of black-on-white crimes far exceeds that of white-on-black crimes.
Obama will likely end up being a one-term president. But more important, his presidency has all but guaranteed a racial awakening in the minds and souls of white Americans. Get ready for the white backlash.
You think blacks only shake down whites for "racial discrimination"?
Yes, even Koreans in the US get shaken down by the "civil rights" racket.
Still voting for Obama?
A couple pays out in a case accusing them of discriminating against a black businesswoman.

HAMPTON - A Korean-American couple who own a gas station and strip mall on Big Bethel Road have agreed to settle a race discrimination lawsuit that accused them of refusing to rent space to a businesswoman because she is black.
Ok Keum Kim and her husband, Jung Hyun Kim — who own the Valero gas station and six other shops at the intersection of Saunders Road — paid "a little more" than $50,000 but less than $75,000 to settle the suit in U.S. District Court, Ok Keum Kim said.
The suit, filed a year ago, had asked for $4 million in damages.
Sonya Swenson — a Korean-American woman from Yorktown who had been leasing the shop from the Kims — said she tried to sell her business, Salon Sonya, to Tiffany Sutton, a black woman from Hampton. But when the Kims learned that Sutton is black, the suit alleged, they refused to allow a lease transfer.
The Kims, who came to the United States in 1975, countered that they were trying to protect another hairdresser — a black woman they've been renting to since 1980. They said they didn't want to set her up for failure by having her compete with another business for the same customers.
"I've been with Mr. and Mrs. Kim for over 25 years," that hairdresser, Hazel King, 74, told the Daily Press last December, calling the suit "silly" and "wrong."
"They've always been fine to me," King said. "They're no kind of racists. No way, no how. Never, never, never."
Kim said Wednesday that when she told King that she settled with Swenson and Sutton, King cried and said, "What did you do that for?" King was not at work Wednesday, but a barber identifying himself as King's son confirmed that story.
Ok Keum Kim still maintains she and her husband did nothing wrong, and said the case "hurt me so much." She said her attorney, Joseph F.Verser, kept advising her to settle. "Everybody was worried about the jury, that the jury might not come out with the right decision," she said.
James H. Shoemaker Jr., an attorney who represented Swenson and Sutton, declined to comment. Another attorney who represented them, William Hoyle Jr., said "the case has been settled" but declined to elaborate. "We are satisfied with the outcome," Hoyle said.
The rental space in question is now rented by a nail salon owned by a Vietnamese woman.
Don't get in trouble with the law, cause you might end up like the guy standing behind the black guy.
Ever wonder what a bunch of ghetto blacks are talking about when when they rap?
As most of us know by now, Obama is the product of a mixed race marriage: his father was from Kenya (black), and his mother was from Kansas (white). He was born and raised in Hawaii, spending a few years in his youth in Indonesia. His parents divorced not long after he was born, and Obama was thereafter raised by his mother and maternal grandparents.
From the start, Obama was very atypical of most American blacks: Obama was NOT raised in a black family. He was raised in a white family consisting of a white mother and white grandparents who were his direct blood relatives -- and who could only transmit to him white/European culture and values. In that sense, Obama did not have an "African-American experience." In fact, he had a very European-American experience, no different from that of other white Americans.
There's another thing that separates Obama from most other black Americans: he has no slave ancestors in the US -- a key part of the so-called African-American experience. This is important, since -- unlike most blacks in America -- Obama has no personal, family connection to any historical wrongs committed by whites against blacks in America. The fact is, he had NO ax to grind with whites for past historical grievances.
So with his unique background, and with no historical ax to grind with whites, did Obama embrace and honor his white family who toiled and sacrificed in order to raise him? Did he honor as well that European part of his heritage?
No. On the contrary, he rejected the love and sacrifice of his white grandparents, ultimately developing a hostile, resentful anti-white attitude that expressed itself in "community organizing." His days as a "community organizer" in Chicago is in fact a career of anti-white militancy.
As Canadian political columnist Mark Steyn said recently about Obama:
Obama could have chosen a different path. But somewhere during his formative years, he chose to identify with what Steyn calls the self-defeating narrative -- the "African-American" -- and then built his entire political career around that new, artificial identity. We begin to see why he chose to associate with the most extreme, unrepresentative segments of American society -- people like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers -- and why he dedicated his career as a "community organizer" to leftist, black separatist causes that were by definition anti-white and anti-American.
Obama was blessed with advantages most blacks in America don't have. He was raised by a middle class white family -- his very own blood relatives. He had no African slave roots in America, and therefore no personal connection to a history of white victimization of blacks. And in the end, he completely threw those advantages away. Instead, he became, by conscious choice, just another African-American, "mired in all the grim pathologies of the racial grievance industry."
During the 1st presidential debate, McCain was noticeably trying not to look at Obama. He appeared surly and condescending in his responses to Obama, and seemed to make a concerted effort not to acknowledge Obama (a fellow Senator) as an equal.
I read some comments from pundits about how this was disrespectful and graceless behavior from McCain, and certainly it didn't look good on television. In fact, it may have hurt him since politicians are supposed to master the appearance of class and graceful behavior on TV -- after all, the less polite you look on TV, the greater your chances of losing votes on election day.
I must admit, I don't find McCain a very likable person. There's an angry, creepy violence that seems to emanate from his demeanor and voice, and I have no doubt he would launch an armed attack on Iran if elected. He's probably the worst candidate the Republicans could have picked, and would be utterly ineffectual as president in addressing and solving the very real problems plaguing the US right now.
But no matter what you might think of McCain, an Obama win in November would be a downright embarrassment. It's not just that Obama is relatively young and inexperienced. It's his absolutely poor judgment -- stemming from immaturity, petulant anger, and a hollow personal core -- that should immediately disqualify him from seeking or holding high political office.
If you've been checking out the news lately, you might have heard the name "William Ayers" pop up. He is the leftist radical who has long advocated the violent destruction of American society. During the 1960s, he was a member of the Weather Underground, a communist terrorist group that bombed government buildings and organized riots to achieve their subversive aims. The mainstream press will tell you that they were simply protesting the Vietnam War, but don't be fooled: this group's ultimate aim was communist revolution.
Ayers no longer builds bombs, but he is unrepentant as ever about his violent past, and he continues his subversion of America through his work as a professor at the University of Illinois.

It was during the mid 1990s, when Obama was getting his political career started, that Ayers first met Obama. Essentially, Ayers hired Obama to oversee and distribute funds to leftist causes dear to Ayer's heart. For the next ten years, the two continued to work closely together until Obama's election to the US Senate in 2004. link to Ayers-Obama relationship
Throughout his career in Chicago, Obama chose to associate with the most extreme, unrepresentative segments of American society. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright (of "God damn America" fame) is one example; William Ayers is another. Moreover, his associations with these extremists were a conscious choice. Obama knew who Ayers was, what he represented, and still he chose to hitch his fortunes to him because he thought Ayers could advance his political career. And he was right -- Ayers did advance his political career. Obama would not be where he is today, on the verge of winning the presidency, were it not for disturbed, unbalanced individuals like Ayers.
With this background in mind -- and knowing that McCain knows full well about Obama's radical past -- it becomes quite easy to see why McCain was unable to show anything but contempt and disgust towards Obama during that first presidential debate.
