Firstly, let me say congrats this write up made me sign up and respond. A few points. You make a good argument about Vincent Chin, but few questions jump to mind.
- Chinese/Japanese and Religious radicalism: Kamikaze pilots and Japanese products just cannot be compared with Jihadists and Islamic fundamentalism. But your drift is cogent.
- It would have helped immensely if you would have also cited some strong Islamic efforts to weed out or report radicalism. Many articles floating on the internet make a strong case for the voice of liberal Islam.
- To answer to Sujatha’s Q on good people. At the macro level the Indian/Hindu community is identified as a “Model Minority” not by the Indian/Hindus themselves but the US as a whole. So Sujatha what’s your take on the community and the requirements for being good? Are we not good enough for you? :)
