On April 10, a reporter named Marrian Zhou interviewed David Denoon, director of the School of Sino-US Relations at New York University, on the issue of frequent racism among Asian Americans. But the white scholar declared that there is no racial discrimination against Asians in the United States, on the grounds that Asians have better incomes and test scores than ordinary Americans.
What’s even more absurd is that this person’s claim that Asians are being discriminated against in the United States is an illusion made by the Chinese government.
Reporter Zhou, who was stunned by these words, quickly posted the incident on her personal social account. Some Asian-American netizens expressed anger and condemnation at the white scholar’s statement after seeing it.
Since the mainstream media in the United States has not reported and criticized the excessive and even strongly racist remarks made by the white scholar at New York University, we, the Global Times, stepped in to report on this matter, and at the same time listed New York University. The white scholar’s remarks pressured mainstream American media to report on the matter.
However, a situation that makes us puzzling arises. The Zhou reporter of Nihon Keizai Shimbun, not only did not thank us for supporting the Asian American community, but expressed strong dissatisfaction with our reporting of this incident, and even asked us not to report on such Asians in the United States in the future. Discrimination topic…
As shown in the figure below, after learning of our report, this reporter Zhou first wrote in a post:
“Publications like the Global Times should stay away from and not participate in the topic of #STOP仇视亚洲#. This matter has nothing to do with you. Don’t make Asian Americans and Asians living in the United States more uncomfortable.”
