How Asian immigrants get preferential treatment when starting a business

Partaking or Taking Over
by Stephanie Galonska

I’ve known about the Asian ownership of our gas stations, hotels and dunkin’ donuts for quite some time but I had no idea just how prevalent the ‘Asian ownership’ was until I drove from Des Moines, Iowa to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania some few years ago.

The Mississippi River had flooded again so I had to take a long detour around I-80 and it was there where I saw it. Imagine my surprise when I walked into an Antique store to ask for directions and saw, to my great dismay, an Indian from India. Now these weren’t Antiques from India, they were American and European Antiques. Needless to say, I didn’t ask for any directions. The next Town I stopped in only had one gas station and guess what? It was owned by a Chinese person.

Throughout my trip, a pattern was emerging. Everywhere I stopped, no matter how small the Town, an Asian could be found owning something. How did this come to be?

Well, we all know it came slow and long ago but as far as I’m concerned, it came mostly in 1990 when our “Leaders” enacted IMMACT which gives us this: “under the new provisions; increases in the proportion of immigrants coming from Asia, with a corresponding decrease in the numbers from northern and western Europe” [1] All one needs to do is look around to see that that’s true.

Add that to all the Government and Business Sponsored Minority Privilege and what do ya get? According to BUSINESS.COM, you get “over 50 percent of all U.S. minority-owned businesses with sales exceeding $1 million are owned by Asian-Americans.” [2]

How did that fifty percent Asian ownership happen in what seems to be, so quickly? Once again, according to BUSINESS.COM, Bank of America and its special program called the “Minority and Women Prequalification Program” [2] helps them but they’re far from the only ones.

BUSINESS.COM goes on to mention how Asians can “meet prospective customers in person at one of the regional procurement events sponsored by The US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce (USPAACC).” [2]

Now who supports USPAACC? According to them, just about everybody. One Government Department they mention is The Social Security Administration [3] and I wonder, do they mean this: “Greta is the admissions coordinator in a federally-subsidized senior citizens housing facility in the San Francisco Bay area. She remarks that, when one of her tenants, an immigrant from Taiwan whom we will call Wen, told her that he had just passed his citizenship test, “I was

congratulating and welcoming him, but he laughed and said, ‘Now they can’t take my [welfare] money away.'” [4]

I find it worthy to remind us all that in that quote are two significant points of interest and they are “federally-subsidized” and “[welfare]”. Immigrants were supposed to support their own elderly immigrant family members when they brought them here but no, once again, our “leaders” changed that Law for them too.

Back to the USPAACC. Who pays for them? We all do. Aside from the numerous government agencies they name, they have plenty of corporate sponsors too. Lockheed Martin, Frito Lays, Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, Verizon, it just goes on and on. It’s one thing for Businesses to give to the Community but it’s discrimination to set aside business opportunities and/or funding for minorities because they’re “minorities”. Minorities have done nothing for America except be non-white and/or female and that’s just not a contribution worthy of any “recognition” or the “Supplier Diversity Program” these companies have set up for them.

What’s a Supplier Diversity Program? That is a program created by yet another minority group called “The National Minority Supplier Development Council” who created “The Business Consortium Fund, Inc. (BCF) which “provides contract financing to NMSDC certified minority businesses across America through a network of local participating banks and NMSDC affiliates.” And who funds the BCF? According to them, it comes from “several sources including corporations, state governments and foundations.” [5]

The Supplier Diversity Program is a program that is used by businesses in which they purchase goods and services from minority owned businesses. Minorities get help from government and businesses because they’re “minorities” and then they get business from businesses because they’re “minorities”.

The Privilege for Non-Whites shall not end as is proven with this gem from allBusiness: “The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) is the only federal agency created specifically to foster the establishment and growth of minority-owned businesses. MBDA provides funding for a network of Minority Business Development Centers (MBDCs), Native American Business Development Centers (NABDCs), and Business Resource Centers (BRCs) located throughout the country. The centers provide minority entrepreneurs with personalized assistance in writing business plans, marketing, management and technical assistance, and financial planning to secure adequate financing for business ventures.” [6]

The MBDA’s Organizational Chart begins with the “Office of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders” [7] Aside from Affirmative Action, this is the most blatant form of discrimination I can name.

This Federally Funded Department promotes non-whites and only non-whites. Does this sound fair to you? “Federal” means you’re payin’ for it and worse, this Program assumes minorities need Help so, not only are they eligible for various Welfare Programs because they’re “poor” but also, they get extra help because they’re “minorities”. Huh? Confusing, I know. It’s a Double Dip and when they play it right, a Triple Dip and for all nothing but for our American Gullibility.

Did I mention how there are NO Privileges for White Men just for being White Men?

To carry on, aside from the MBDA, minorities also have the SBA and its various programs like the 8(a) Business Development in which the SBA boasts that “Under the Small Business Act, certain individuals are presumed socially disadvantaged: African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians), and Subcontinent Asian Americans. An individual who is not a member of one of the groups listed can be admitted to the program if he/she shows – through a “preponderance of the evidence” – that he/she is socially disadvantaged. For instance, an individual may show social disadvantage due to race, ethnic origin, gender, physical handicap, long-term residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of American society; or other similar causes.” [8]

The most disturbing thing about this is how it is “presumed” that non-whites are all automatically “socially disadvantaged” but if you don’t fall into any one of those non-white groups, you must prove, through a “preponderance of the evidence”, that you are “socially disadvantaged”. I have no proof but this sounds like a program specifically designed for their favored non-whites.

The Small Business Administration gets $978,000,000.00 for FY2012. “The bill contains $978 million for the Small Business Administration (SBA) – $249 million more than last year’s level and $7 million below the request. Small business loans – which have seen marked increase in demand and higher subsidy costs due to the current economic situation – receive an increase of $128 million.” [9]

How much of that money goes to minority only programs? I don’t know but when I look around, it seems to me like they’re getting quite a good bit of it and from everywhere else too.

According to Reuters, “SAN FRANCISCO–(Business Wire)–In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Wells Fargo Asian Business Services announced today it has reached its 10-year goal to lend $3 billion to Asian business owners nationwide — three years ahead of schedule. The goal was established at the program`s inception in 2002. The company also announced they have expanded the goal to $5 billion by the end of 2013.” [10]

I looked but I couldn’t find any special Divisions for White Men at Wells Fargo like they do for the Asians with their “Asian Business Owners” page and I couldn’t find any five billion dollar set-aside for loans that only White Men can apply for like they did for the Asians neither.

Banks aren’t supposed to be setting aside money to loan to a specific group of people. They’re supposed to be concerned about one’s ability to pay it back and that’s it. And to add insult to injury, these same people, these companies, bankers and our government just love to tell us how smart and capable these people are but if that’s true then why do they need so much special help?

If you’re not concerned by now, perhaps this, coming from the Office of Refugee Resettlement will concern you: “Microenterprise Development Program assists refugees to become financially independent by helping them develop capital resources and business expertise to start, expands, or strengthens their own business. The program provides training and technical assistance in business plan development, management, bookkeeping, and marketing to equip refugees with the skills they need to become successful entrepreneurs. In FY 2011, there are 18 grantees in 15 states that receive grants totaling $4.0 million.” “The targeted refugee population for these programs may include refugees who receive public assistance or subsidies, and/or who lack the financial resources, credit history, or personal assets to qualify for business loans or assistance through commercial institutions. Refugees who are not yet citizens may participate in the Microenterprise Development Program regardless of their date of arrival in the U.S.” [11]

They get to live off Welfare because they’re ‘poor refugees’ and then because they’re “minorities”, they get Minority Business Loans and Minority Grants too and they don’t even have to be Citizens. Isn’t that nice? Don’t recall if I mentioned or not, but I’m still lookin’ for those special government and business set-asides for White Men…

Aside from all the government and corporate business funding they get, the Asians also have their own private groups that work very hard to make sure their own people are getting everything out of America they possibly can. The following is from USINPAC (United States and India PAC):

15% – percentage of Silicon Valley start-up firms owned by Indian-Americans • 59.9% of Indian-Americans work in top managerial positions • Average yearly income of an Indian worker is $51,904 • More than 300,000 Indian-Americans work in the Information Technology sector • $69,470 – the median income of Indian-American families, nearly double the median income of all American families — $38,885 • Nearly 10% of the physicians in the US are of Indian origin • Indian-Americans also have a huge marked presence in the national and local political arena. At least 12 candidates won various elections in 2010 • Of the total non-farm business owned by

the Asians, the Indians own close to 1/5 of the business in America and have earned over $150 billion in revenue • Indian-Americans owned 19.9% of the total Asian firms with a value of $152.5 billion and a recorded growth of 38.2 % in 2007 • Over 50% of the H1-B and L visas are issued in India • Over 900,000 Hotel rooms – Asian-Americans currently own 50 percent of the economy lodging sector and 37 percent of all hotels (Source: Asian American Hotel Owners Association). [12]

The above are only a few mentions of their “accomplishments”. Make no mistake about the Indians, they have every intention of taking over single last piece of America they can.

There is something to be learned from these Third World Indians though. They have no shame in seeking power and control for themselves. White People used to do that and we need to learn how to do it again before it truly is too late. If we don’t pull it together, the Asians are all too happy to take it from us.

The Committee of 100 is a group of Chinese people whose goal is “To encourage constructive relations between the peoples of the United States and Greater China. • To promote the full participation of Chinese Americans in all fields of American life.” This is from Committee of 100. [13]

And the Koreans… “Nurture the sense of pride and confidence in Korean cultural heritage and tradition.” From the Korean-American Scholarship Foundation. [14]

See what I mean? It’s an all out ‘in your face, dare to ya do something about it’ take-over of our Country and us.

Name your Asian and somewhere out there is something for them but don’t take my word for it; look it up yourself. Type in your Asian Flavor and I guarantee you, you will find something that helps only, their own kind. And it’s worth noting, none of them are called “racist” or “bigot” for doing so neither.
