4th World Radyo: Overstanding a Manufactured Hysteria: Or, Why Witnessing Afro-Revisionists Sip Nazi Kool-Aid is Ideologically Painful

Summary: This spoken word dispatch features FWR host @TheAngryindian addressing the prevalence of nonsensical conspiracy theories circulating within the American Afro-Urban community due to the dissemination of false information spread by misinformed, Afrocentrist extremists who routinely (and ignorantly) pluck their ‘research notes’ from the very same pro-European propaganda machine they habitually criticise. Unwittingly, many Black […]

On the US raid in Yakla and Implications from Uncertainty:  How Trump’s Chaos Aggravates the War in Yemen – Diwan

Initial discussions following the raid in Yakla speculated on the reason for such urgency on the part of US officials. Without much evidence, sources speculate the relationship between al-Dhahab’s younger generation and the global jihadist organization (AQAP) evolved beyond a local partnership against Houthis. Nabil and Tareq Ahmed al-Dhahab, uncles to Abd al-Rawuf and Sultan, […]

Article: Should an Innocent Person Be Forced to Pay for Their Arrest? | OpEdNews – Donald Trump takes office in two short weeks. As I’ve written previously, I don’t expect much in the way of prison reform or sentencing reform. Indeed, I’ve urged readers to take to the courts for redress because we obviously won’t […]

The Dark Prison: Legacy of the CIA Torture Programme – Al Jazeera English

While the CIA has long admitted the use of waterboarding, which simulates drowning by pouring water into a person’s nose and mouth, a truncated and heavily redacted report by the Senate Intelligence Committee in December 2015 detailed other abuses that went beyond previous disclosures. Reading like a script from a horror film, some of the […]

Podcast: ‘Anti-Intellectualism is More Than Partisan Politics – it’s Anti-Progress’ — APNS Public Radyo

Summary: TheAngryindian speaks extemporaneously on the issue of institutional anti-intellectualism and why is it inherently dangerous to coddle those who bully the general society and targeted groups/populations into accepting their marginalisation as ‘right’ and obedience to their xenophobic, right-wing sociopolitical ideas and utterly paranoid religious fundamentalism. The discourse also includes an examination of Israeli Prime Minister […]

Majestic 12 – Wikipedia

The MJ-12 documents were first made public in 1987 by Shandera, Moore, and Friedman. Another copy of the same documents Shandera received in 1984 was mailed to British researcher Timothy Good in 1987, again from an anonymous source. Good first reproduced them in his book Above Top Secret (1988), but later judged the documents as […]

The Digital Firehose: Terrorism isn’t just for Muslims, but that doesn’t fit the mainstream narrative

The Digital Firehose: Terrorism isn’t just for Muslims, but that doesn’t fit the mainstream narrative – I suspect there is a very interesting reason why this news trend doesn’t fit the narrative. If Muslims had been found to be burning black churches you can bet that would be news. Then whoever claimed responsibility would be […]

Those other three hostage have not been recovered and after Amerine told Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) the hostage recovery system was broken, he was labeled a whistleblower and retaliation followed, he said.

"I'm not racist; my wife is Asian!" Why are there so many racist, conservative, alt-right, right wing, anti-black, anti-Asian, anti-social, anti-feminist, conspiracy theorist, pro-white, white nationalist, creepy, weird, rejected, unattractive white men who fetishize and marry Asian women? How many times have you seen racist white men fetishize asian women as an alternative to "feminist", slutty Western women? If the overwhelming majority of half Asians have white fathers, with white men fetishizing Asian women as "submissive and pro-white," (and to take back power against blacks, "mudsharks," and 'degeneracy') and Asian women preferring white men for status and integration and to "feel beautiful" and to have "white" children - what happens to the children of these race-based, white-supremacist fetishistic couples - especially if they look asian or non-white, feel ashamed to be Asian, and still face racism? a website written by concerned half-asians worried about the threat these men, women and their children will pose to the future of progress.

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?
