Asians being attacked in school, school administrater
Posted 3/21/10
Duyngoc Truong is a lithe, 16-year-old junior who stands 5-foot-3 and weighs 108 pounds.

At dismissal Dec. 3, she was chased through the streets outside South Philadelphia High School until she ran out of room to run, pinned against a brick wall of the St. Agnes Continuing Care Center by a mob of a hundred, and pummeled about the face and head.

"I thought, 'Oh, my God, maybe I'm going to die,' " she said.

Truong, in the newspaper interview, said there was no mystery about it. She and her friends were being followed by 20 to 40 African American students. When that group ran toward them, the Vietnamese, mostly girls, ran to try to escape, she said.

"I saw them run at us, and then I started to run," she said.

Giles said he did not see "any gross inconsistency" between Truong's account and the report.

"The people who were there with the students, side by side with them, told me the students, as I understand it, started to walk faster and faster, and they ran."

The report is deliberately limited in scope, focused on Dec. 2 and 3. To have delved into every previous incident, Giles said, would have required staff, resources, and time that he did not have.

Asian community advocates say a major failure of the report is it does not tie the Dec. 3 violence to years of previous attacks. The daylong assaults Dec. 3 were a culmination, not an aberration, they said.

According to the legal document obtained by The Inquirer, which outlined the physical assaults on Asian students last school year, one boy was beaten so badly that the bones in his face were broken. Another was beaten so often that he dropped out of school, the complaint says.

Who would want to hurt Asian people? (other than other Asian people)

This is very unusual.

This is not gonna to look good. I can feel bad comments coming in this thread soon.
Very upset that even happened in the first place & hope they get justice, but I hope they don't scold every person who's African-American. Thank goodness my school was never liked that. mostly everyone got along together.

Great, I can just hear the nigger comments. Please, it's pathetic and it needs to stop.

Who the hell gangs up on anyone? It's cowardly, and for their race no less, and of course they're going to point out the fact that these people were black, just to make it more controversial, but I believe they need to look more into this investigation. There had to be some type of racial tensions that escalated to this conflict.

Like I've told you before, I have a low tolerance for ignorance and racial statements. If I see it in this thread, then it's a ban, no warnings.

That's one of the many reasons I always say I love my school, because there is never or rarely race discrimination.

I just glanced at the article that discusses these attacks and I don't know how Pennsylvania, specifically Philly picks judges, but this is outrageous. I have a BA in Criminal Justice and I personally cannot see how some of these cases go the way they do. I'm black but I'm not ashamed of this. (I didn't do anything.) What I am though, is disgusted and pissed off. Its horrible enough to attack someone, but a group of GIRLS? I'd have to read the whole case to see what law he was ruling under. But still. At first glance it sounds to me as if they kept the case in the juvenile system which I believe is the first failing. Arg, as much as I love the law and things, this is just stupid.

Forum mod dropping the N bomb, then saying they have low tolerance for racial statements? Looks like you just wanted to have an excuse for saying that word, then saying oh no its ok because I hate racist people, so its OK for me to say stuff like that. God I hate hypocrites

Not in my experience here in Miami.

Unusual, my ass.


I agree though about Asian people hurting other Asian people.
Filipinos are best examples, especially the ones in medical field.

how come the only thing i find ignorant in this whole thread is the mods use of a racial slur, seriously i thought CR did a better job of picking mods. but then again its not as bad as the mod in the naruto shippuden series who told everyone she waits and downloads the episodes from a fansub group cause she hates to stream...wtf is wrong with you CR?

**edit**
it all makes sense now, the mod in this topic is 16 years old, cant really expect them to think before posting.

I've been through this before, I'm not a good mod, etc. Attacking me isn't going to work. You know very well what I was trying to say, but I suppose there is no excuse for that word, and there's no point in attempting to correct it seeing as at the end of the day you will continue to think whatever you want about me, that's fine.
