Revisiting an Oldie on Racism

In 2012, YinYang on HH made this post, http://blog.hiddenharmonies.org/2012/01/12/responding-to-china-law-blog-chinese-students-in-america-its-bad-out-there/

about a Blog article on China Law Blog by Dan Harris, http://www.chinalawblog.com/2012/01/chinese_students_in_america_why_do_they_even_bother.html.

both generated a lot of controversy.  Unsettled, it seems.

Ah, but we all know sooner or later some of this come back in different forms.

Remember how Dan Harris relayed negative stereotypical comments about Chinese students from students (more than 1/2 from U. of Washington)?

Remember how some of us pointed to such stereotypes as nothing but racism?

Remember how some dismissed our arguments?

Well, oddly enough.  Recently, there have been a string of rather public display of Racism in US.  1 of which is a public racist chant by SAE frat members at U. of Oklahoma.

Some would call it “isolated”.  Yeah right, of course.

But then again, may be not.

Apparently, SAE frat members at U. of WASHINGTON were also caught doing some thing equally racist.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/sae-fraternity-washington-accused-racial-slurs-black-students/

Beyond that, a new film “The Hunting Ground” exposes the culture of sexual assault on US college campuses, where the SAE fraternity is recognized by several college girls as stands for “Sexual Assault Expected,” but the culture of silence is deafening.

If a fraternity could have that kind of reputation and still operate on campus, until the point of public display of racism, then the problem is indeed already deep in US universities.  (And I doubt Mr. Harris or any one else can attribute these problems to the “Chinese students”.)

So yeah, “it’s bad out there,” starting with the very old and real problems of Racism and Sexism in US Universities, which apparently perpetuates the centuries old filth among the elites of each new generation.

To state slightly differently than Dan Harris:  the “Divide” is already real enough in US Universities, without the Chinese students.

I do not need to generalize.  The Culture of tolerating Racism and Sexism is real in US Universities, and evidently outside of them too.

As long as US public cannot face up to it, they will continued to be shocked by what comes out of the ivory towers of their favorite Alma Maters.

    Dan Harris is a racist white lawyer based in Seattle who lies on his China Law Blog about his firm being registered in China and Vietnam. No way Jackie Chan! He is an American online bully who posts so much shit about doing business in these countries that its stupidly entertaining many folk in China just laugh at him. But why is he racist? Because despite what he writes he pays taxes only in the US and not to China . Despite his firm being mainly “China Derived Income” and that legally he should be declaring his China work to the Chinese government. But he doesn’t. What he blogs about China is racist because it is solely to suit his own selfish interests. He doesn’t care about China, he cares about money. Everything is either really bad (so you need to use his firm to protect you from the nasty Chinese scammers he often writes about) or it’s good (so you need to use his firm to subcontract your legal work so he can charge you exorbitant rates to set up an office or draft a contract.) This character has no consistency or morals. He blogs about China and the Chinese but doesn’t have the cohines to live there. He is considered a running joke by the actual lawyers operating in China (most of them Law abiding qualified Chinese) and competes with them. But those guys do pay their taxes there and have bothered to taken the Chinese qualifications. Dan Harris shits on Chinese lawyers. Harris is licensed by Washington State, and not Beijing. So when it comes to China, this man is an online bully, a fraud and a racist and has no depth of knowledge of what he talks about. Forbes diminish themselves as do others by thinking this man is a “China” expert. He’s not, and his blog is all smoke and mirrors. Check out his actual office locations to see what I mean. He has one – in Seattle. None in China. It’s on his law firm website at http://www.harrismoure.com. Once a white guy in Seattle, always a white guy in Seattle. Dan Harris is not the man when it comes to China. In fact those in China view him as a bit of an annoying prick, who hasn’t the balls to either set up there and hasn’t the money to pay taxes there either. Man up Harris and set up with the Ministry of Justice and get a license and start paying taxes in China on your income like the real China law dudes. And here’s a tip: never buy China investment advice from a lawyer whose firm hasn’t invested in China themselves. In the meantime file Dan Harris under : “China Wannabe” and “Anti Chinese Racist Cunt”.

    Correction: Dan Harris’s firm Harris & Moure have two American offices, in Seattle and a smaller one in Chicago. Their “China” offices are so-called “affiliates” called “Deshengde Consulting” in Beijing and “HMDA Business Consulting” in Qingdao. As their website notes, NEITHER are authorized to practice Chinese law. Questions for Dan Harris:
    * Why do you always say you have a China law practice and Chinese lawyers in China when you clearly don’t?
    * Yesterday you said you had a Vietnam practice: http://www.chinalawblog.com/2015/03/china-vs-vietnam-for-product-sourcing.html but that’s a lie too isn’t it?
    * Why in fact aren’t Harris & Moures registered with the Chinese Ministry of Justice? You’ve been writing about China for awhile, so why didn’t you get a proper license? Is it because their is some problem with your firm and the Chinese Ministry of Justice? Is there a legal problem? Can’t you afford the license fee for foreign law firms? Or is it tax evasion?
    * it seems you subcontract your US clients to local consultants in China who also aren’t lawyers. Do you have indemnity insurance to cover that?
    * You must be making a mark-up on the real China work done by Deshengde and HMDA. You are actually operating as a broker. What is your mark up rate, the difference between what you charge your US clients and what you pay those consulting firms?
    * do you think your China law work brokerage is a sustainable business model in light of the Chinese Ministry of Justice new regulations about policing the Chinese law industry?
    * and finally: do you know that what you are doing in subcontracting US law work to Chinese consulting firms who aren’t registered as law firms in China is actually illegal?
    Some fair questions I think for Dan Harris to answer when everyone else abides by the law.

    Another racist gem from Dan Harris today, this time anti-Semitic and anti-Chinese at the same time. He’s talking about Beijing in this piece here http://www.chinalawblog.com/2015/04/beijing-wins-worlds-most-livable-city-honor-fongs-pizza-proves-the-point.html and suggests its a good place to live, and I quote: “Particularly if you are Jewish and Have no problem living in a city with no-go zones”
    Tell that to the Jews who were ghettoized then gassed in the Holocaust, those in Israel being bombed everyday and the racism the Jews face daily on every street. Yeah, I’m sure they appreciate that and have “no problems” with it Dan.

    Due to Dan Harris as a racist, his China Law Blog lost 935,751 readers on the Alexa blog rankings the past week, showing that using anti-Chinese sentiment to promote his Harris & Moure law firm to get biz from scaring American company executives is a bad strategy. You shouldn’t kick the knowledge source you’re trying to sell to other people to scare them to charge fees it doesn’t work. You can check here: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/chinalawblog.com
