Ban Ki-moon Met Tyahnybok of Svoboda, UN Won’t Say If Ban Knew in Advance

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 24 — The day after the UN confirmed to Inner City Press that in Kyiv UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon met with controversial Svoboda Party leader Oleh Tyahnybok, Ban’s deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq refused to say if Ban knew in advance that Tyahnybok would be present. Tyahnybok, the leader of All-Ukrainian Union ‘Svoboda,’ has repeatedly been quoted that the country was led by a “Moscow-Jewish mafia.” In the last week, parliamentarians from his party beat up a television news executive to make him resign. (Dujarric on March 21 told Inner City Press neither he nor, he thought, Ban had watched this widely available video.) Did Ban know in advance that Tyahnybok would be present? What would Ban Ki-moon as UN Secretary General have to say to Svoboda’s Tyahnybok, he of the “Moscow-Jewish mafia”? Dujarric’s e-mail to Inner City Press does not say. So Inner City Press went to the March 24 UN noon briefing and asked Dujarric’s deputy Farhan Haq:

"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.
