Rally responds to incidents of female jealousy at UCLA
"Honkie" is a word used by blacks for whites so is this an anti-black rally? Blacks are usually allowed to be as racist as they like. Check Farrakhan.
Such mysteries aside, everybody seems to be ignoring the fact that there is a real underlying grievance here. On campuses where there are lot of Asians it is notable that the big Caucasian men rather often have a little Asian lady on their arms. This frustrates other women who would themselves like some of the men concerned. In the Ivy league, I believe that the non-Asian women refer to this problem (most "incorrectly") as the Yellow Peril.
The same thing is very obvious in Australia. Australia is about 5% Asian so there a lot of clever little Chinese-origin ladies around. And there is no doubt that they go all-out for tall Caucasian men. Where I live it is totally routine to see tall Caucasian young men with Asian girlfriends. It is more surprising to see an Asian lady with an Asian boyfriend.
I of course see nothing wrong with any of that but it must be frustrating at times for Caucasian (and black?) women to see so many desirable men already "taken". Tallness is something women generally like in men. Short men complain bitterly about their "invisibility"
About a hundred people rallied outside Kerckhoff Hall earlier today, following acts of vandalism involving racial and sexist slurs that were reported to police earlier this week.
On Tuesday, a student found a piece of paper with the words “asian women R Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores” attached to a Vietnamese Student Union sign in Kerckhoff Hall. Wednesday, a similar phrase was found handwritten on the door of a bathroom stall in Powell Library. University police are currently investigating both incidents.
Amid chants of “hey, hey, ho, ho; Racism has got to go” and people holding colorful signs, speakers from various campus groups expressed their disappointment with the occurrences at the rally, which was hosted by the Vietnamese Student Union.
