10/21/16 Washington Post: “Why some Asian Americans want to ban this rap song”
By Derek Hawkins
The song “Meet the Flockers” by California-based rapper YG opens with these lines:
“First, you find a house and scope it out. Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts.”
Over the following two minutes, YG gives a step-by-step description of a residential robbery: how to scout out the scene, how to break in, and how to discern which items are worth stealing.

Boston, October 15, 2016 – Protests against Rapper YG’s hateful Lyrics in major cities across the nation. Boston will hold a protest when YG is scheduled to have a performance here on Oct. 19.
The Chinese American Citizens Alliance Boston Lodge condemns the cultural form of violence represented by the music video “Meet the Flockers.” This extremely racist video, produced by Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson aka rapper YG, incites and perpetuates racial stereotypes, horrendous violence and despicable crime against Chinese Americans. The lyrics and video blatantly glorifies home invasions on American families.

Asian Americans protested Wednesday night outside a concert in Maryland, criticizing California rap artist YG for a song whose lyrics talk about burglarizing homes in Chinese neighborhoods.
“It glorifies crime against Asian Americans,” Cliff Li, one of the rally organizers, told NBC News. “We want to say it’s wrong to glorify crime against everybody.”

SILVER SPRING, Md. – Music fans and protesters both gathered at The Fillmore in Silver Spring Wednesday night. The fans were there to see rapper YG perform inside the concert venue while the protesters were outside to denounce some of the rapper’s lyrics.
The controversial lyrics come in the song “Meet The Flockers” that was released two years ago and the protesters are arguing that they are a step-by-step guide to street violence that seem to be directed against the Chinese American community.

  1. This is on the big national level. Even at the local level it’s hard for Asian Americans to get their footing for political positions: http://www.bensonhurstbean.com/2016/06/colton-slams-imposter-billy-thai-misleading-leaflets/#.V2ScY_krLIU

  2. Is this a Democrat Party ‘thing’ or is it just that these most regrettable things happen to be happening on Obama’s watch.

    I can argue that if Obama was really for racial unity, he’d have his people be more careful in taking these actions.

    Would a Republican administration do any better?

    The Democrats appear to be ‘flubbing it’….in football, if your team can’t move the ball forward ten yards in four plays, the ball goes over to the other team, and they get a crack at trying to move it forward ten yards in four plays. I may be belittling the injustice of the situation; my apologies for doing so. The point is, let’s give the other team (a.k.a. the Republicans) a chance with the ball and see if they ‘flub it’.

  3. Dear Mr. Kwiatkowski,

    I am unaware of Republicans indicting Asian Americans and then having to dismiss the cases as being without merit. As you noticed from reading the rest of the Hall of Shame, some Republicans have taken other unfair governmental actions against Asian Americans.

  4. Note: for all of his embarrassing (especially to Republicans and right-leaning libertarians like me) talk about Hispanics and Muslims, I don’t recall that Donald Trump has had much to say, good or bad, about Asian-Americans. He has denounced what he asserts are ‘bad trade deals’, but that’s about all I’ve heard. Maybe I’ve missed it, in all of the furor over his ‘asking the Russians to find Hillary’s 30,000 missing e-mails’, or his assertion that ‘President Obama started Isis (he may have enabled it to become what it is today, but it wasn’t his idea) or even going back to his spat with Megyn Kelly.

    Anyone with knowledge along these lines, comment here and enlighten my ignorance…
