A #Genocide in the Making: The #Rohingya People and (Far-Right) Buddhist Nationalism in Burma/Myanmar // @TheAngryindian Speaks with Geor Hintzen

Summary: The Rohingya Nation is a stateless, culturally Muslim/Hindu, population of nearly one million people primarily situated within Rakhine State, Burma/Myanmar with another million of their citizens dispersed across mainly South and Southeast Asia. As a socio-politically marginalised Indo-Aryan ethic minority within Burma/Myanmar, (Indo-Aryans) the Rohingyas are restricted from enjoying citizenship rights – by law – in harsh contrast to the historical record which documents the presence of Rohingya occupation in the Arakan region since (at least) the 8th century. United Nations observers, along with other human rights NGO’s report that the military government of Burma/Myanmar – aside from severely limiting the rights of these people through persistent racialist persecution – are actually operating a programme of ethnic cleansing, gearing-up for a mass, forced-exodus of the Rohingya under the threat of death. The government of supported in these xenophobic measures by the majority Buddhist population and numerous, far-right clerics citing ‘racial purity’ goals as a rationale for advocating Rohingya genocide.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What will happen when racist, anti-social, anti-diversity, conservative, anti-feminist, anti-black, anti-asian white men marry "traditional, family oriented," status-obsessed, racist asian tiger moms who hope their children look white for privilege - and produce half asian sons who look asian? what happens when half-asian sons grow up to look "too asian," and have a white dad and asian mom who are mocking asian men, while society is unapologetically racist against asian men? an honest appraisal of self-hatred and racism by the very worried son of a racist, black-hating, holocaust denier, Nazi-sympathizer and a racist, self-hating chinese woman.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most 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 neo-nazi and a chinese woman.
