Drone Survivors Speak at Congressional Briefing Called by Rep. Grayson – YouTube

Streamed live on Oct 29, 2013

Brave New Foundation and Rep. Alan Grayson’s Congressional briefing on the drone crisis. Rafiq ur Rahman — a primary school teacher in Pakistan — will appear at a briefing called by Representative Alan Grayson (FL-09), along with his children Nabila and Zubair.


In October 2012, Nabila and Zubair were injured in the same drone strike that killed their grandmother — Rafiq’s mother – while she was tending crops in her garden. This landmark briefing marks the first opportunity for Congress to hear in-person accounts from drone strike survivors. Other testimonies will be given by Robert Greenwald and the family’s lawyer Shahzad Akbar (via a representative from Reprieve UK) recounting the horror and immorality of civilian casualties in drone strikes. Rafiq’s story is one of several depicted in Robert Greenwald’s upcoming documentary UNMANNED: America’s Drone Wars. Sign up to see this daring, investigative film, available for FREE starting Oct. 30th for a limited time: http://www.AmericasDroneWars.com

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What it's actually like looking Asian with a far-right, anti-feminist white father, and a self-loathing Asian mother who hoped for privileged "white, blue eyed babies." An appraisal of fetishes and self-hatred.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most strange, racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer white men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and white women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to white men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many white supremacists, alt-rightists, and white nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? Compiled by the son of a racist white father and a racist Chinese mother.
