BLACK IN ASIA
The Mani people are the original homo sapiens that travelled from Africa and settled in Thailand. They are the original negaritos who moved with other Africans like Andamanese of India, Aetas of Philippines,Semangs of Malaysia to their present residence in Thailand. They were there before the other ethnic groups came to form the Thai kingdom. Anthropological studies has revealed that the Thai Mani and Malaysian Semang were the first modern humans to enter the Malay peninsula. They remarked that "the original people of the Malay Peninsular that about 4,500 years ago the Proto-Malays moved south from the Yunnan province area of China into Southeast Asia where they met the Negritos who, for a long time, may have been the only modern humans to live in this area"
The name Mani is of Mon-Khmer origin and means “human being,” and they speak Tonga language. The Mani or “forest people” as other Thai people call them lives in the jungles of southern Thailand, in the Banthad Mountain Chain and around the Malaysian border in the provinces of Trang, Phatthalung and Satun. They are facing extinction and currently their total population is about 300. The Banthad Mountain chain became a base area for communist insurgents during the 1970s and thus a battle ground between communist guerillas and Thai government forces. Especially during the years of 1975-1977, the insurgents were battered in ground and air attacks. The Mani suffered terribly during this war with government forces frequently mistaking the smoke of Mani camp fires for insurgent activity. Those living in Trang and Phatthalung provinces had to move to the sanctuary of Thoungwan district in Satun province.
The Aetas are the aborigines of the Philippines who were called negritos by the Spaniards at the time of their reign in the Philippines because of their darker skin color. It is the tribe inhabiting the eastern parts of Luzon and called in different names: Agta, Ita, Ati, or Aeta. About 20,000 of them are spread throughout the country. Their majority can be seen in Pampanga and Zambales while others inhabit the coastal fringes of Northern Luzon, and the mountains of Negros, Samar, Panay and Leyte. As a result of their nomadic life, they live in houses built out of grass and tree branches to easily vacate upon scarcity of surrounding food.
Aeta according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country
The Semang are a Negrito ethnic group of the Malay Peninsula. Lowland Semang tribes are also known as Sakai, although this term is considered to be derogatory by the Semang people. They are the indigenous peoples of this area.They have been recorded to have lived in Malaysia since before the 200s Common Era (CE). They are ethnologically described as nomadic hunter-gatherers.
The Semang live in autonomous local bands consisting of an elder male (usually the leader of the group), his wife, their sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Their religious beliefs are complex and include numerous deities. Shaman-priests practice magic, foresee the future, and cure illness.

Either they think we are very stupid, or know they won’t be held accountable - either way, this is some serious BS!
This is not the first time either.
They claimed a handcuffed kid who was left handed shot himself in the head from the right in FL.
At this point, I don’t even think they think we’re stupid. They just don’t CARE. They have proven over and over again they can get away with this shit. They don’t NEED to come up with plausible evidence. They go on unpaid leave and go back to terrorizing Black communities.
“Another similar situation occurred this year in Louisiana, when 22-year-old Victor White, III was killed with a gun in the back of a police car while handcuffed, that case too was ruled a suicide, even though he was shot in the back.”
Absolutely critical to the White Supremacy system of religious thought was the formation of the image of a White man as the ’Son’ of God … . With this unconscious logic circuit of ’God is a White Man’ firmly in place, white domination over non-white people could last for one trillion years.
Classic example of Racism (White Supremacy) in the so-called mainstream media. The photo and its associated caption were released during the Hurricane Katrina aftermath, which often portrayed Victims of Racism as criminals and people classified as “white” as heroic survivors.Hurricane Katrina was a colossal storm that ravaged the area of the world known as New Orleans, Louisiana in late August of 2005.We actually had three whole days of debate about this exact picture in AP Language. We concluded it was a coincidence- they’re taken by two different people for two different publications. The latter photographer also said that they literally found the bread floating on the water, though I’m not sure if they just said that to save their asses from a lawsuit.
When the image above was first posted there were a few bloggers who imagined themselves to be debunking what I’d written as a caption. The image is making its rounds again, most likely due to the recent focus on Racist (White Supremacist) characterizations of black Victims of murder, and so I decided to use this as an opportunity to show how Racists (White Supremacists) deflect and attempt to minimize their mistreatment of Victims of Racism. My reasoning for not initially responding is that I wanted to ensure that I don’t get in the habit of attempting to explain anything to people who I suspect are practicing Racism. Nevertheless, I’ve decided to post my original response. (Please note: the reblog quoted above has since been deleted).
I think it is fascinating that this is being “debated” in classrooms today. For me, it helps demonstrate how Racist code is transmitted to people who classify themselves as “white” (the commenter says she is in high-school).
Non-white people are being indoctrinated to believe that the mistreatment we receive is somehow coincidental and therefore not systemic. However, regardless if there were two separate journalists (I assumed as much), the two photos and their associated captions still demonstrate how deeply anti-blackness is entrenched within the public discourse. In other words, people who classify themselves as “white” react to blackness in a predictable pattern that impacts black life in all major areas of people activity. For the Racists, black classified person = deserving of maltreatment.
These type of counter-arguments presented by the poster (and presumably her teacher) is like saying that the disproportionate amount of times that “white” enforcement officials stop and frisk non-white people is coincidental because its happening by different enforcement officials. What’s interesting is that the most powerful Racists know that they can’t chalk these unjust actions as coicentental so instead they malign black people to such a degree that any unjust activities towards black people is easily dismissed and even celebrated.
People who classify themselves as “white” and who practice Racism (White Supremacy) encourage Victims of Racism to believe that there are merely a few fringe groups of Racists keeping this system alive. However, this system requires complicity and active involvement from large numbers of people who classify themselves as “white”. So it does not matter that the so-called white enforcement officials may not know each other or the journalists who wrote the aforementioned captions may never even meet. What matters is that under a global system of Racism (White Supremacy), non-white people have been designated as permanent targets of mistreatment. And so, when it’s time to write a caption after a horrific disaster people who classify themselves as “white” will describe the black person as “looting” and the other so-called white person as “surviving”. In order for the system to function, Victims of Racism cannot ever be seen as human, worthy of being treated humanely.
Here is the “gotcha” link that another Racist Suspect reblogged when this was first posted. I guess it’s supposed to prove something in their favor? How is this supposed to mean anything to a Victim of Racism whose image is battered in mass media at every turn? The article that was supposedly debunking this image was written by Racist Suspects for the sole purpose of justifying Racist (White Supremacist) abuse. I am just suspicious of anyone who could look at this attached image and not see it as reflective of a typical anti-black media bias.
Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)
Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.

preeoz, check this out. We were just talking about Zen Kimchi, a popular Korean foodie site where the author claims Koreans shouldn’t try to be pretentious. He likes to talk about how Korean food is peasant food and that Korea is the “Provence of Asia”.
Foodie culture is for bigots.
This is important.
Also I remember the shock of getting korean food in the us for three times the price. It was shocking because i had forgotten what the cost of food here is. And people would complain to be about how they didnt want to pay 12 bucks for bibimbap but like I didnt see them trying to make it at home? You could. But your asses want to consume korean culture cheaply without effort.
