What does it take to rouse a group of Chinese Americans to restore relevance and honor to Chinese, and all Yellows, by tickling Gary Locke, former Gov of Washington State, and US Ambassador to China, and asking him, if Mulan, of the Ballad of Mulan is tattooed?
The question of Chinese-Americans are afraid to ask, because they don't have the moral certainty of the answer. Think on it Chinaman. An American public school teacher, who doesn't have the moral certainty of an answer that won't get the teacher fired, for asking the visiting American general, the name of the first President of the United States. Afraid to ask an officer whose biz is to know what to teach, teaches, the name of George Washington.
(George Takei and David Henry Huang)
David Henry Hwang and George Takei, the two yellow artists most loved by whites who own, write, and read white newspapers are celebrated by the University of Columbia, Harvard and Yale. David Henry Hwang (the morals of Hollywood), and George Take celebrated liar of the JACL, attributing "I surrender" as the moral stance of a leader of draft resistance from Heart Mountain Concentration Camp. In 1944, former President advisor Eric Liu, boldly refuses to defend yellow manhood from Maxine Hong Kingston's admitted lies about Mulan, and Ngawk Fei (Yue Fei). Till, then, all Yellows are condemned to hate ourselves for the white love of Christ, the 19th century San Francisco area of the 1890s, missionary Donaldina Cameron, starting a Frisco House, to sneer at Yellowmen as whimpering wifebeaters - ick! And there we are, demoralized. Through the actions and newspaper publicity of Cameron House and the Chinese Christians they spawn in print with missionary Charles Shepherd’s novel making a hero of Donadlidina Cameron, for beating cowardly Chinese beaters of women, continue to try. There goes Chinatowns AVENGING ANGEL TO THE RESCUE of women with an axe and a squad of police! So begins the 20th century, and the generation of 1940 - the year of metal dragon - oh, the generations of Chinese and Japanese born here since. AND today teach their bellies fat by teaching nothing - nothing at all - nother but - IT’S ME! ME! ME! WHITE MAN! - ME! NOT THEM- WHO ARE "THEM"?
WE ARE THEM. CHINAMEN, JAPS, KOREANS, ANYONE BORN A YELLOW,
OH YELLOW MAN, WHERE YA GONE TO RUN TO? ALL , ON THAT DAY?
RUN TO THE JEW,
OOH! A PILLER OF FIRE
YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO BECOME A JEW
CHINAMAN , KEEP ON THE RUNNING
OH, Oh, OH ! YELLOW MAN. WHERE YA GONE TO RUN TO?
RUN TO THE IRISH, TOP ‘O THE DAY
CHINAMAN MUST GO!
OH YELLOW MAN, WHERE YA GONE TO RUN TO?’
ALL, ON THAT DAY?
RUN TO THE AMERICAN INDIAN,
GO, YELLOW MAN, GO.
RUN TO THE BLACKS,
THANKS, FOR THE MEMORIES
BUT I , AND GOTTA GO TO KEEP AHEAD OF THE COWARDLY CHICKENSHIT OF MY PEOPLE.
RUN TO WINESBERG, OHIO, AND SHERWOOD ANDERSEN,
NO ONE WHITE ADMITS TO HEARING OF "YOKOHAMA, CALIFORNIA." AND, TOSHI MORI.
Movies are art at the beginning of art. Movies are seen and seen again with company, by local people, in a local house. Not only is Hollywood morally white in the 1940s, it is patriotically white.
Run to the Moulin Rouge porno movie house on 7th built as a model of the Red Mill, on the Paris Left Bank, with paddles that light up and turn on an axle - two storefronts along 7th used to be the negro newspaper, the Oakland Independent. In the 50s, a burlesque by night and old movies by day. The Moulin Rouge is a between Housewives Market on Jefferson and Chinatown. So we stop to talk to the movies.
Art is a muddy as the people that congregate into a working neighborhood - a local village, or town. Hollywood "politics" twixt the nation and locals, and the national will is enforced by the nation's guns, and force the nation's right to gobble up a local's cops for national need for feed.
Spencer Tracy talks to my mother out of the movie 30 seconds over Tokyo. We sit with bags of groceries in our laps. Instead of Spencer Tracey flickering into focus out of the cold of the space of the theater. I see the face George Takei in the Year of the Dragon.
(Barack Obama and Bill Clinton)
What can Pres Clinton and Pres Obama say to correct their expression of White racist contempt for Chinese heroine for Mulan’s misogynist Chinese civ taken from Maxine Hong Kingston’s fake non-fiction autobiography to avoid being classed as fiction? Choose one, or all, or none. Suggestions flood to mind.
(A) Ooops! You mean her beautiful writing isn’t real? I took non-fiction seriously (B) In Indonesia, and islands to the south, we have a way of handling the Yellow Chinese…With stinking race laws, and the smell of gunsmoke. (C) The Chinese really stink! (D) The Chinese in the 19th century a people without the unifying protection of a moral Christian gov – a people without a culture or a civ the people of the land cultivate and keep alive. (E) China is taken over by immoral Christian competitor European empires in their last days. The Hapsbergs, Czar Nick, The Victorian et al gives rise to the last heroic novels of the Southern Song, printed , after the Mongols and Kulbai Khan’s Mongol Yuan Dynasty is gone and Ming! Chinese are back in the saddle again! Ming (General Yue Fei, Yang Family Generals, (Mu Guiying) Liang Hongyu, the Little Drummer Girl).
The former Pres might say, "I did not mean to take the writing of Maxine Hong Kingston as autobiographical truth. But I did. I’m sorry, I did not know The Woman Warrior is actually fiction, a novel, not an autobiography. I am personally happy to say that the factual truth is that Mulan, of The Ballad of Mulan, is not tattooed."
And then, AND THEEEEENNNN! PRES CLINTON AND PRES OBAMA CALL AMBASSADOR GARY LOCKE OF SEATTLE, AND ASK HIM TO LEAD A RECITATION OR READING OF THE BALLAD OF MULAN FROM A CHILDREN'S BOOK– and children’s stories of their own, before kids from the Nihonmachi, Chinatown neighborhood, at Seattle’s Panama Hotel Coffee & Tea House – the American Nikkei who left their belongings labeled and kept at the Panama, your belongings await your return.
You 100 ornaments pretending to be Chinese civ, get off your egoes, and show yourselves Chinamen and Yellows. The Year of the Chicken has passed! Call your Congressman.
