Multiculturalism at work in New York City

A korean man, Ki-Suck Han, was recently pushed into the path of an oncoming subway train in New York. Here is the victim:

A Yahoo article gave a clear hint of the background of his assailant by stating:

The Post says one of its freelance photographers was on the platform as the ordeal unfolded. One of his photos shows Han on the tracks, looking at the train as it bears down on him.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Tuesday that detectives were still seeking an unidentified suspect. There is a $12,000 reward.

Police are seeking a suspect – but there is no description. Usually, this means the suspect is a black male. Sure enough, here he is:

But the main fury is being focused on the New York Post freelance photographer who took the chilling photo of Han just before his death – one R. Umar Abbasi. It appears he cared more about getting his precious photos than helping the victim. Is Abbasi Muslim? Would he have acted differently if the victim appeared to be Muslim as well? Has there ever been a case of a crazy Korean man pushing a black man onto the subway tracks? Will the corporate-controlled media ever recognize the patterns that, to normal people, are self-evident?
We are told that we are “enriched” by having a multicultural/multiracial society. I don’t see enrichment. I see rule of the jungle and chaos.

  1. A major problem is the existence of police officers. People tend to avoid helping others because they assume it is the job of the police to do that. If we as a society legally abolished the police department then that would mean that people would naturally police their own communities in an organic way without the need of “police officers”. If you have no police officers then everyone becomes a police officer and that makes it much more difficult for people to commit crimes… and by crime I simply mean those things that cause injury in any way.

      That is a really poor argument. Were people less likely to help each other out in the 1950s? Were there not police officers back then?
      It’s already been demonstrated in Robert Putnam’s study that multi-cultural societies produce less social trust. This is well known. There’s no need to conjure up an unproven theory to explain this.

      • There were less police officers in the 50’s.

      • Georgia Resident says:

        But still, there were police officers in the 50’s, no? I think the causation runs in the opposite direction: We need more police officers now because we are a less naturally cohesive society, due to multiculturalism. In my mother’s childhood hometown, where the only “diversity” was German-descended versus French-descended Americans, there was one police officer to write tickets for traffic violations and occasionally deal with a belligerent drunk. Now that the town is “diverse”, with a smattering of Somalis and Hispanics, there are five police officers, although the town’s population has actually shrunk because of the emigration of the natives.

      • SOJ: No, there were not less police officers. There were fewer police officers.

      I cannot fathom your arguments. Libertarian nonsense. Just think Africa, that’s the type of society we would have, were you to be in charge.

    This story isn’t as simple as you think: Apparently the Korean man was drunk when he approached the black man.
    As for the man who took the pictures: he coolly defended himself on CNN — or so it would appear if he were actually a coward — but he was not a coward.
    Cameras have zoom lenses,so we cannot assume that he was as close as the pictures suggest. From his position, he could do nothing.
    In my opinion it’s immoral and intellectually dishonest to bolster your racial worldview based off of these freakish,rare events.
    This could have happened to anyone, therefore race has nothing to do with it. Furthermore, you don’t need to do this to justify your worldview. A through study of the BJS is enough to prove your worldview, and it’s really all that matters.

    • jewamongyou says:

      When racial patterns are so blatant, and so covered up by the powers that be, we like to point at instances such as these and say, “See!”. Yes, it could have happened to anyone as you say – but I don’t think it’s accurate to say that race has nothing to do with it. I agree with you that I spoke up without knowing the details (as did millions of others), and that things are not that simple. But the fact that folks would call me “racist” simply for pointing out the fact that the perp is black and the victim Asian shows the sort of society we now live in. This is why I feel it’s important to point it out – even if, sometimes, race was not actually a factor.

    Law enforcement is becoming increasingly militarized: SWAT teams, APCs, “wars” on drugs, massive increase in incarceration, and now drones. Why do we need all this? We have had two generations of civil rights, liberal social engineering, and war on poverty. These were supposed to “solve” the “problems” of the cities. Yet many of America’s inner cities have become de facto warlord territory. Gangs. Drive-bys. Infrastructure collapse. Detroit. And no sign this is going to get any better.
    Paul Kersey over at Stuff Black People Don’t Like has done yeoman work in showing the factors behind the urban disintegration. And the disintegration is not just in the big cities, it’s also in the small towns. If you check out Europa, also in the benelieus. Despite the record of epic fail, DWLs continue to push the same self-destructive policies. Ideology trumps reality–and sanity.
    Then the government asks why Americans are arming themselves.

    I’m one of the few people who doesn’t fault the photographer.
    According to reports he was down in the tracks for a minute and a half, and apparently drunk. Why did no-one else help him? Part of the reason is surely that you can avoid getting crushed by lying down in between the tracks. It’s uncomfortable and you might get a few random scratches, but you’ll definitely survive. Why did Mr. Han not do that? Presumably because he was drunk. That doesn’t excuse what seems to be a case of murder, or course, but it does provide context for what is otherwise being uncritically cited as an example of the bystander effect.
    If I were there that is what I would tell him instead of reaching down and possibly risking my own life or at least arm.
