The trio of armed invaders never knew what hit them. Out of the shadows on the extreme borders of a late night and an early September morning blazed a white knight of reason and raw justice. Chen Fengzhu, full and bravery and vengeance, leaped from the shadows with the remarkable celerity and drove the African American men from the premises brandishing the consistent retort of a handgun in her right hand and armed with a cellphone in her left.
One of the criminals died on the scene, while the other two disappeared into the darkness. In an incident that deserved national attention, yet was predominately unreported in the US due to the politics and ineffective construct of a wayward media, Fengzhu’s heroics reached a viral and legendary threshold with a global audience, especially in China. If properly inserted and distributed within the news cycle, the eloquent and concise act of justified self-defense would have given a valuable ideal and necessary tool to a population demographic currently being taken advantage and terrorized by thugs.
In a recent article, author Helen Raleigh of the Federalist, effectively delves into the nuances of Fengzhu’s acts of self-defense and cleverly articulates the specific detrimental ramifications that liberal media biases have on the public perception of the Asian American community. While Fengzhu has inspired a pocket of Chinese Americans in the importance of self-defense and the Second Amendment, ironically she is a virtual global icon only outside of US borders, due to strident omissions by the mainstream press. The tendencies of the media to egregiously withhold disparaging content is patently obvious in the case of rapper YG. As Raleigh clearly illuminates, the pseudo-musician wrote implicit lyrics urging listeners to target and burglarize Chinese neighborhoods, citing a potentially profitable payday by taking advantage of community that is predominately peaceful and law abiding. In the wake of the “song’s” release two years ago, any outrage or public dialogue was hindered by the fact that the controversy has received little or no news coverage, again due to the fact that reporters and editors face little fear of repercussion. When weighed against the current spectrum of tawdry and unbridled political correctness invading the headlines, the actions of the incorrigible YG are a serious critique and borderline attack of an ethnic group, prompting a serious attempt at securing accountability.
