The Narrative Gives a Nod to IATFB of "Asian Junkie"

Floyd Mayweather
Personally, I’m fucking disgusted by her and I feel fucking embarrassed that she attempts to speak for me as both an Asian and as an Asian American through her bigoted verbal diarrhea that she tries to prop up as logical truth telling.

~ IATFB, Asian Junkie
What he said: "Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise."

What she said: Basically? Kill all Black people.

What I say: Both of y'all need to shut the fuck up.

First of all, I refused to believe that Mayweather's comment alone was what sent Jenny Cray-Cray Hyun off on a genocidal rant.  POC in general know that developing that type of wrath takes time.
Jenny Hyun
Oddly enough, Jeremy Lin himself is an example of how you break down walls. By putting in the work, performing like a fucking bauce, and setting an example for those that follow. Not by going on Twitter and blabbing on and on about vapid bullshit like Jenny Hyun just did.

What does she think she’s accomplishing by making Asians look bad by launching into a racist tirade on Twitter and then saying she doesn’t regret her words.

~ IATFB, Asian Junkie
Word is bond, boo-boo.

For those of you haven't already seen this hot mess:



*rubs temples*

1) Big-ups to IATFB of Asian Junkie.  She called Hyun out quick.  And she was fierce about it too.  Being the voice of reason between Mister Ignorant and Madame Cray-Cray must be some tiresome, thirsty work, so IATFB drinks free At the Bar.

2) Ironically, Mr. Ignorant pointed out something I don't think he meant to: Jeremy Lin is an ass-kicking athlete in his own right.  Anything you can do, he can do the same (or better).  It has nothing to do with charity, or pity, Harvard, or even hype.  The hype came after he whooped ass on the court for all the world to see.

3) Madame Cray-Cray needs to be fired yesterday and sent somewhere with padded walls.  Since the most we can hope for is that she gets fired, here's a petition where people are signing damn near every second.  As for the padded walls...*crosses fingers*.

Speak up, Narrators.  Delurk if you have to.  What are your thoughts?

  1. Big-ups to Asian Junkie for jumping on this pronto. This chick is off of her fuckin' rocker. If she thinks she's going to roll up in the states with this bullshit she's in for big surprise.

    I signed the petition. It is all over Tumblr as well. The Kpop game is pretty much imploding at this point. I'm glad her racist ass has been exposed.

  2. While Floyd is an arrogant SOB, I don't think he was completely wrong in what he said. Would Jeremy be getting as much publicity if the general public weren't shocked at what a good player he is? The public is shocked because he's an Asian Harvard student. A major part of Linsanity is him being Asian. I personally don't think he took anything away from Jeremy with his statement.

    2. Yes, much of the hype is that Jeremy is Asian. The problem is, people are putting TOO much focus on the Harvard and Asian aspects, while shying away from the ATHLETE aspect. Everyone wants to credit his abilities and success to anything but athleticism.

      Floyd is trying to roll his eyes at Jeremy and his situation, but that's because he's coming from a position of Black male athlete privilege. Jeremy doesn't have that privilege, not by a long shot.

      Delete
    3. I agree that much of the hype surrounding Jeremy Lin now is due to him being an Asian-American (not a Chinese import like Yao Ming), doing what (let's be honest here) American society really did not expect an Asian man to do - kicking ass in basketball. Unfortunately, Mayweather made his achievement look like some sort of 'affirmative action' promotion, as well as making Mayweather himself come off as some butt-hurt child.

      I'm not even a sports fan, but that comment earned an "Oh no, you didn't!" side-eye and brow-raise from me.

      As for Ms. Cray-Cray? Signed, and I'll be Tumbling that petition all over.

    4. "Floyd is trying to roll his eyes at Jeremy and his situation, but that's because he's coming from a position of Black male athlete privilege. Jeremy doesn't have that privilege, not by a long shot."

      I didn't think about that aspect of his comment. The privilege that came along with it. I'm happy Asian Americans have an athlete to call their own. We POC should be sticking together, we all face stereotypes. I'm happy Jeremy is breaking stereotypes. Ultimately Floyd didn't have to say anything. Some celebs don't need to have any social media outlets.

    5. Way back in the 90s, Chris Rock went on a rant about how white people were so "shocked" that Colin Powell could "speak so well." To which Chris Rock replied, "He's an educated man! What did you expect him to sound like?"

      Same thing here. Jeremy Lin is a six-foot-three, 200-pound, muscle-bound point guard for motherfucking Knicks - what did people expect would happen once he got out on the court? That he was going to stand in one place and go,"Ergh...what game are we playing again?"

    6. @HazelEyedErica,

      This is the Blasian narrative, a place where Black women and Asian men have a voice. As such, there's no wrong way to look at something. In truth, Harvard's team is so horrible it is hard to believe Lin could achieve so much while attending that particularly basketball-challenged institute. At least with Duke, Rutgers or the like, one could imagine this outcome. ;)

      I appreciate it that you want all POC to stand together in this fight and perhaps that would be possible if we all came from the same place. Sadly, we didn't. While Blacks in America have always had to be integrated into almost all segments of society, people of North East Asian descent have not. Due to their lighter coloring, these particular Asians have generally slipped into mainstream society and have mainly been perceived as nonthreatening. Since "white" Americans are so easily color aroused, it was possible for these Asians to be rendered "invisible" as long as they didn't didn't anything to shatter the stereotypes.

      In this case, instead of ignoring Lin, they rolled him out the same way they roll out "white" players who string together a handful of good games. What they did wasn't about Lin and his phenomenal play. They weren't seeking to just give him the credit he deserves. No. They chose to cast him in the role of NBA-SAVIOR. Lin is seen as the second coming, the guy who'll redeem the NBA and save them from those evil Black players who've pushed "white" guys to the sidelines. *whatever shrug* Poor Lin.

      Anyway, this issue is complicated and the only way to sort it out is for people to express their beliefs. I only hold my tongue when I'm completely uncompromising about an issue (i.e. K-POP artists). Otherwise, we need to try to get to the root of this anger and work through it. Sadly, Asian men are not active participants on this site, so until that changes we'll just have to go it alone.

    7. @Hateya,
      Actually the Harvard team that Jeremy Lin played for is far from "terrible." Under a coach who played at Duke in the Grant Hill era (and who most recently was at Michigan), the Harvard team was ONE GAME away from the NCAA tournament last year, and finished at the top of the Ivy League for the first time since the 40's. We beat Princeton, who has made the tournament pretty consistently and is known as a pretty solid contender in the winner take all, one and done nature of the NCAA basketball tourney. And we only lost to them in the last second of our third match-up of the year (Harvard had easily won the previous two).

      Please don't discount the work that Coach Ammaker has done (and he was recruited precisely b/c it was believed that as a Duke grad and player, he could coach athletes who were actually still students), and continues to do. The Harvard team that you claim is so terrible was in the top 25 in the AP poll when the season started and was there for 14 weeks(by the way, it is week 15 so they'll probably be back).

      So if you are going to criticize the program and the team and the Coach, do your homework about it first, b/c what the team has been historically and what it is now are two VERY different things.

      The biggest lesson I take from Jeremy Lin is that in order to find an Asian sports star, you need to have more Asian American kids who TRY to be sports stars. Not all of them make it, but neither do all black athletes who focus on football, basketball, etc. They need to have parents who support those dreams and yes, they have to just push through and keep trying. Look, it's not smooth sailing for black athletes who entered things other than the "stereotypically" black sports. Things are still really UGLY in the majority of sports for non-white players period, but people kind of ignore that b/c of the NBA and NFL.

      Jeremy Lin wanted to be a basketball player instead of a consultant or banker and he went for it, and now it is paying off.

    8. @Nicthommi,

      Perhaps in the future you will recognize a jest when you see it. I guess the mention of Duke, Rutgers and the ;) --it indicates winking -- went right over your head. Well, damn. Bye!

      Delete
    9. @Hateya, you mentioned Duke, which is a very good school but has a very LONG history of being a great basketball program (like Georgetown was in the past), and Rutgers which I don't recognize as an academic powerhouse or a strong basketball school. So no, it's not so much that it went over my head, so much as it was a weak analogy. I think Georgetown and Duke would have made more sense. Good try though.

      And since Harvard's history in basketball is REALLY poor, and its appearance in the AP rankings this year was met with shock, again, it's easy to assume that someone would think that Lin played on a team of losers.

      So I guess all of that either went over your head or you don't know basketball so well.

    10. @Nicthommi,

      So I guess all of that either went over your head or you don't know basketball so well.

      Oh no! The horror! I referenced two of my favorite bench warmers, one from Duke and the other from Rutgers, in a statement about Lin! Oh geez, I must have misunderstood when those two guys and others in their age bracket gave post-game interviews in which they talked about how Lin had them shaking in their sneakers when they were in college. **buzzzzzzz - there goes my curls, crimps, spirals, and naps.

      This wouldn't have happened if I'd been listening to the John Thompson show.

      Goodbye... sayonara, Nicthommi.

      @Ankhesen

      I'm done with the snarkiness. I'll pretend to be mature and focus on more important things like Yu Darvish. This Japanese-Iranian (that's right, he's a double Asian) pitcher babe is on his way to the Texas Rangers. If he has a few bad outings, it'll be because the mound needs to be adjusted. Trust me... it happens a lot. Sadly, with him gone our local team will probably lose 20 more games in the upcoming baseball season. While we appreciate Texas' money, I prefer more championship rings for my little ol' island.

  5. First of all, I just found out about this woman, and I hope she gets all that is coming to her. I hope she gets fired and get her butt handed to her. And the most horrible part is that did all of this in a matter of a day, and I completely agree that this was brewing for a while and Mayweather set her off and gave an excuse to go off.
    Mayweather on the other hand, this ignoramous has always been a hater so I was waiting for him to say something at one point. He is trying to stay relevant. He is one of those haters that will always hate and I hope Lin brushed that off really quick.
    In terms of this Linsanity, some of us like him before he was even in the Knicks. I loved him in the warriors as well as all of the video he was featured in on youtube and his own channel. I just hope he just keeps his head clear and doesnt listen to anything around him and keep his focus. And to all these damn people with the racist remarks, this has just got to stop. But of course we dont live in a perfect world do we....

  8. You'd be surprised(and feelings crushed) if you really knew that, in fact, many many Asians, especially Koreans think just like her. She is obviously touched in the head anyway. Just go through her timeline. She worships white men and insists that everyone should show them respect. No different from any other Asian who kisses white tail. Oh yeah she contradicts herself with her music choices too; mostly black artists. Typical.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Okay so I Googled her, she seems REALLY proud to be Korean but at the same time she was ranting on Twitter about how we need to respect white people so she might be a little confused. Alot of people are knocking her for this but I did see one "she's awesome" and another "she says everything I don't have the guts to say" but those comments were from Soompi and readers there are just as goofy as most of All K-Pop's readers. I doubt SM will fire her though. She knows stuff like this flies in Korea so she said it knowing she'll get away with it. If she worked in the US we would not be having this discussion. Something tells me she's a little sour she's not as successful making R&B (our music that wouldn't exist if we were never around, or done right after we are gone) as she would like and maybe she feels she would have a better chance if the likes of Beyonce and the gang were gone. Which is highly unlikely because then you'd have to compete with Gaga etc. Good luck!

  10. There's no popcorn here but I'm making do with mangoes.

    The conversation here and on Tumblr (where we are talking about racism between POC in particular anti-Black racism from Asians) is just making me feel things. I don't think I'm going to enter this, or any other, Kpop conversation. I just can't. I mean wasn't it just recently that we were talking about blackface in a S. Korean skit and there was that whole issue with MBLAQ. And now this. It may take a lot to get me out of this 'fuck everything related to Kpop' mood.

    I've said it on Tumblr but I'll say it again. While I seriously doubt that that cow would be blacklisted from the Kpop industry, I'm hoping that it happens. Should it not happen, I'm going to personally blacklist all the agencies and acts that are associated with that person. Kpop is not so good that I'll continue to support it while it employs racist, white-supremacist, anti-Black assholes that call for the genocide of my people. This is something I take seriously. I can never support those who hate me and people that look like me, it is even worse that they are simultaneously stealing the hard work of, and insulting African-Americans. I'm also fed up with white-supremacist POC of every kind, this includes those stupid Black Kpop fans that will do and say anything to absolve racism in the Kpop industry.

    As I mentioned earlier, there is more diversity in the African music scene now, than there was when I got into Kpop. I'm going to be putting my money to support people that would never sell out for the crumbs off the white supremacist table.

    Ugh.

  11. Uugh, first of all, all of them needed to keep their damn mouths shut. Plus that fucking stupidity and racism needs to not exist ...nor does it need to be tolerated. It should be dealt with accordingly, Ms. Cray Cray needs to be fired and whatever harsh punishment they can come up with. Honestly she should have to pay fines or be sued for something like this. This is a hate crime and she needs to do time for it. But of course she won't and we all know why. And Floyd needed to shut his trap too, there was no need to say any of that.

    I actually didn't know anything about Lin until I picked up a news paper at a grocery store looked at it and thought awesome another good athlete in the NBA who happens to be Asian; this is cool. Go Lin! I'm not Lin Crazy but I do appreciate that he is athletic and he is good at what he does. Plus Athletics and all that other stuff are what interest me that is what I major in.

    3. @Steph

      I'm not Lin crazy either because I know how the game works. I know that extremely talented players, those who have attended a variety of educational institutions, are often left to fester on the benches because the marquee players have minutes factored into their contracts or other stipulations. A person on the bench can only hope and pray they get an opportunity to shine. From what I understand, Carmelo went down and Lin got his chance. Isn't this how it works in the NBA? While the system itself sucks, sometimes the pay-off in worth it when a player steps up and helps to bring his team out of a rut. As such, Knicks fans should be ecstatic and I can't wait to see them finally play TOP TIER teams. I would like to see what Carmelo, Amare, and Lin can put together. Can they take their team to the playoffs? Can they take them to the mountaintop? Kobe has played and carried his team with a broken hand. While fighting the flu and memories of previous mental collapses, Dirk led his team to a NBA finals victory. Within every player, I'm looking for that special something-something that makes them champions. Since I need a minimum of 50 games of player evaluation before I will even consider jumping on any bandwagon, Jeremy has 40 more to go and I hope he impresses me.

  12. You know..just in case the Kpop industry won't call out on people like Jenny, maybe we should call out on her, like publicize her here in the states in some way like you would see on the news like the incident with Lou Jing( mentioned her yesterday), entertainment newspapers, . I don't like the fact that this vermin loves our music,but not us and some of those Black kpop fans possibly supporting her. Miss Jenny is trying to make it big here , eh? I think that her quest for American stardom needs to be stopped before it began and the petition for her ouster is a hopeful step in the right direction. I hope that Jen will get all the fame that she wants..through negative press

    Far as Floyd, he really do needs to keep his mouth shut.Jeremy is good, he can't help what God gave him. Being Asian American has nothing to do with how he can play basketball. I learned about him from through Angry Asian man and I was impressed by his skills. I also like Lin because I like to hear stories of " What wasn't supposed to be..." stories. It wasn't supposed to happen to him ,but it did and I'm happy about it. Floyd should feel the same way.

  14. Like I said on a different board Floyd is like the 50 Cent of sports. He likes to talk out his butt about others because he's not that good. However I also didn't think he was completely off. Pretty much anytime someone of a different race excels at something that is usually dominated by another race they get extra attention. Tiger Woods anyone? Seriously who cared about golf until his ass came onto the scene (LOL, well until he decided to be Cablinasian or whatever). Still Floyd isn't nearly as batshit crazy at this girl.

    What's so funny is that she failed to realize to things.

    - The music she writes for probably wouldn't exist without black folks.

    - Now EVERYONE knows who she writes for...a group that's trying to break into America. The company might take action against if they realize how hard it will be to market SNSD/Girl's Generation in the states now that people see a blatant racist rant is attached to her. It has an affect on their image, even if they don't believe in her ideals. The company AND the artists would do go to speak out against her and/or fire her of their own sakes.

    2. @ShaSha,

      Golf lovers knew Tiger was destined even when he was a mere cub. Only the mainstream media had their heads buried so deep in their asses they didn't see him coming. He, like the Williams sisters, were game-changers and once the game is changed, there's no going back.

      While I have no interest in Merriweather per se, I fail to understand why so many people automatically assume he was talking out of his ass without any prompting. I vividly recall when Lin first stepped on the floor and showed his stuff. "White" racists nearly imploded the internet with their diatribes about Black players, most of whom have actually earned their berths on the NBA roster. The more success Lin had, the more the racists fantasized about him being the Great Yellow Hope who would finally send the Blacks back to the plantation. The things that came out of their mouths were pure unadulterated filth and while I wish the boxer hadn't joined into the fray, I won't lay the blame solely at his feet because "white" racists actually do reign supreme when it comes to divide and conquer techniques. The "white" owned and operated league is laughing all the way to the bank at our (Black and Asian) expense. The Atlantic ocean sized gulf that already existed between our two peoples has expanded. I pray it does not reach Pacific proportions.

      While the powers that be are stunned silly at Lin's athletic prowess (Huh? Yao Ming wasn't even the best player in China or Asia for that matter), they're simultaneously promoting the idea that Black men are still "raw talents" with little or no intelligence. *burns*

      Poor Jeremy Lin. What in the hell will happen to him if he doesn't live up to their expectations? One guess... they'll crucify him.

      Delete
    3. @Sha sha, I knew about Tiger Woods as an amateur player b/c a friend's dad was a HUGE golf fan and as was already mentioned, people who knew about golf knew about this kid and knew he was destined for greatness. He's wasn't noticed b/c he was average for a pro and black. He was the BEST and happened to be black. When he one the Master's Fuzzy Zoeller made that sillly comment about chicken and greens since the winner picks the meal for the players.

      I remember watching golf at my friend's house years and years ago b/c her dad wanted to tell me all about this kid, he was clearly a golf prodigy but yes, had to face issues that white players don't (clubs that didn't want to let him play for example, and his team skipped tourneys b/c of that).

      Ditto with the Williams sisters. They were getting noticed as being game changers when they were playing at the junior level but what was noticeable about them is that they weren't from the traditional channels but clearly exceptional. I saw a profile of them years before they hit the big time too.

      So it's not so much that Woods, Lin, or the Williams were EVER average in their sports, but that they dont' look like the majority of people who play those sports, and they aren't products of the normal pipelines and showed up and schooled everyone(so for the Williams sisters, that would be the major tennis academies that serious tennis players usually attend by the time they reach high school, or for Lin, it would have meant coming out of a "basketball" school like Kentucky, Duke, UNC, Connecticut, etc). Even with Princeton's team doing pretty well in recent years, it's not as if those players land in the NBA either. (Bill Bradley is probably the best known Ivy League basketball player I can think of up to this point).

      I think that the major point that Mayweather misses is that Lin didn't get a shot until everyone else indisposed. So it's kind of not fair that he could be just as good but kept riding the bench because of stereotypes.

      It was just a problematic statement b/c some talented guys never get a chance and some do. Lin got his shot and b/c of stereotypes, no one expected him to be able to hang, let along excel.

      Hyun has no business trying to speak for her race and make it look bad. She has business dragging Jeremy Lin's name into when he's already dealing with racism on multiple fronts.

      The temptation is going to be to fight fire with napalm. Now people are going to start saying dumb shit like "Asians are racist psychopaths" instead of "Jenny Hyun is a racist psychopath."

      When will these people (the Mayweathers, the Hyuns, etc.) learn that they are EMBARRASSING OTHER PEOPLE when they run their mouths like this?

    3. "While I do not condone the violence, I also do not accept this apology because it was insincere. You want to have African-American videos and yet degrade the African-American community at the same time. You want to say you are a Humanist and a lover, and yet call a group of people APES. My KOREAN husband and friends read your twitter comments and they were quick to say you are the type of Korean who does damage to your own community.

      As someone who is out in the semi-public eye, you should think before you act. And if you do engage in words and behaviors that draw backlash, OWN UP TO IT. If you want to apologize then be truly sorry. African-Americans will not simply sweep this under the rug. It is on the internet for everyone to repeatedly see.

      It is unfortunate that people responded with violence….but then again. Since you think African-Americans are apes you shouldn’t be entirely surprised. Apes will act in an aggressive manor when threatened. Hopefully this incident will encourage you to think about the consequences of your actions. You are really too old for this type of behavior."

      I actually did go to her site and posted a comment to her. The racism that is prevalent in the kpop industry does not always trickle down to the fans. I can only hope that this woman is released from her company but I also seriously doubt it.

  17. Asianjunkie is a really good blog, I like what he (or they, not sure if there're several bloggers) says in general.

  18. WOW! I signed the petition and she can go somewhere with the apology. *Sigh* I'm tired of all it.

  20. Does anybody really believe that someone found her address and went to her house? I don't buy it. She seems mentally unstable. She could be just making that up.

    1. I'm with you on that.nor do I believe that people have been coming to her home. I just think that she's making it up, trying to make things worse then what they really are, especially Black people are involved in the mix.

    2. I fully expect her to pull a Bethany Storro. I kid you not.

  21. As I said, I was never was a Kpop and no longer support,but I just read a news story or two about a group called Block B. If you follow them, you may want to disown them after reading it (allkpop.com). Although they didn't call anybody names, you'll get the idea of what they were talking about.

  22. I am not a sports fan.

    I have little knowledge of the game of basketball itself, or really even of the significance of Mr. Lin's specific athletic accomplishments within the context of professional level basketball. My only understanding is that he's one of less than a handful of Asian men to play in the NBA. And that he's apparently REALLY good.

    But here's one thing I do know: There's a whole heckuva lot of racial dog-whistling permeating the coverage of this man. And a lot of really specious logic is being used to amplify the Asian model-minority trope, and imply that the NBA would be a much better place if only there were more of the Lins and less of the thuggish, poor sportsmanship having, "hip-hopper" blacks who dominate its ranks. These kinds of tired tropes are, of course, meaningless and arbitrary, and are manufactured for the sole purpose of creating discord among POC, and propping up a system of white hegemony.

    To differing degrees, both Mayweather and Hyun have fallen for the ol' okey-doke.

  23. Here's an analogy for you-
    Mayweather tweet :: water gun :: Hyun tweets:: Cannon ball

  24. How can anyone living in New York City publicly make such incendiary statements. She's lucky nobody busted a cap in her behind the minute she tweeted that madness. Chick must have a serious death wish.

    She even managed to throw in a dig at Whitney Houston before the sister had even been buried. How sick is that?

    Jenny Hyun needs an exorcism. This is beyond racism & paranoid schizophrenia----it is demon possision.

    It would delightfully ironic if all the nurses & orderlies in her psych ward turn out to be Black. Bwahahaha! Might just drive her to suicide.

  25. Did anyone else notice this quote sitting on the Asian Junkie page under an author named IMMATOP?

    "There are girls in the hood who don't know who they baby daddies are, but they know their due date."

    What's up with that?
