—– I am all about social justice. But this is just Terrible piece of journalism, and cites a kind a feminism which has weak theoretical backing. It is hate guised in justice. Pure commercial news with profit seeking motive. Terrible. 

If it was white women or Latinas who are known for giving “happy endings” at massage parlors, it would have been white and Latin women who were killed.

At best, it is a sexual problem of mental health dimensions, albeit yes a kind of misogyny, but one which is biologically based, I’d say, which has indeed informed the systemic oppression of women historically, yes. And maybe by extension the massage parlors which has been historically institutionalized by the Asian community, as a sort of front, where behind the scenes clients are giving “happy endings” of a sexual nature — yes, maybe there is some racial component there. But To try and merge deaths with the conversation of racial injustice in America and racism, I think that is blurring the issue and weakening the overall call for systemic change.. It is presenting a contrast between human agency and racial presentation as an essential component of being human, again, disguised by the trope of racial oppression. Basically, a poor activity of journalism, barely even disguised for its money making agenda. 

The point of social justice is not to get back and retaliate at the historical reiteration of inequity, like the article poses implicitly; on the contrary, equity and social justice is to bring to light and think critically about our own role in the maintenance of oppressive systems.

If the dude is telling the truth, then at best he has a mental issue around sex. The press and others are just then just using the coincidence of the Asian company and the even as a means to put Asian racism in the spotlight. For sure, there is racism in every corner, but perhaps not what motivated this murderer. That is, unless we are going to put us all under the microscope of being manipulated by systemic coercion, which is not what the analysis of race relations nor is institutional critique is about.x

Violence against women by men is a systemic reaction: an act by men who are unable to see human beings who do not adhere to their own sense of righteousness as human beings. And women are an easy scapegoat for this inability of men.
