The FBI is targeting tar-sands activists. Should that worry you? | Grist

Blocking roads is a pretty run-of-the mill protest tactic. In recent years climate change activists have blocked oil-by-rail shipments and roads into tar-sands sites in both the United States and Canada. Blocking a road is also a state-level misdemeanor at most, and outside the purview of the FBI, said Larry Hildes, an attorney based in […]

WikiLeaks shows US push behind Australia-India nuke deal | Green Left Weekly

In the three decades after India’s first successful nuclear test in 1974, relations between the US and India were cool. By the early 2000s, however, US policy-makers looking to maintain US dominance in Asia came to view India as a potential counterweight to China. In January 2004, President Bush and India’s Prime Minister Bihari Vajpayee […]

Canada’s First Nations are paying a high price for our dirty tar sands fix

The migrating birds died, as have many thousands of others before them. The Alberta Energy Regulator reported 122 deaths last week, a total that made headlines across Canada—not because it was particularly shocking, but because it’s a reminder that despite years of concern and millions of dollars in fines, the tar sands mining companies are […]

If Orwell had had a “Ministry of Science” it would look Like GOP Science Committees | Informed Comment

But what would a GOP-controlled Senate mean for scientists and their research?When it comes to science and, more importantly, funding individual senators are perhaps less important than the committees that they run. There are 20 committees in the U.S. Senate, with responsibilities ranging from homeland security to urban development. The chairperson of each committee, appointed […]

Drilling In ANWR Likely To Resurface If GOP Wins Congress

Republicans have long eyed the pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge ANWR and Outer Continental Shelf OCS as a potential energy jackpot. As the GOP sees it, the aggressive protection of ANWR’s fragile ecosystem prevents it from becoming a fully participating resource in the country’s energy security. In 2008, the issue divided the party when then-presidential […]

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What happens when racist, alt-right, anti-feminist, anti-asian white men marry extremely racist, status-obsessed, asian women that hate asian men and hope their children look white - and have a son or daughter who looks asian?

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?
