Heritage Foundation, March 20, 2015

Ying Ma addressed the Conservative Women’s Network in a speech titled “Prevailing Over the Welfare State.”  She shared her personal story of prevailing over the poverty, lawlessness and general dysfunction of inner-city Oakland, California. She drew distinct contrasts between the “welfare state” approach to addressing poverty versus an approach based on hard work, individual responsibility and educational achievement.

In the speech, Ms. Ma also said “No, thank you” to “bossy liberal women” who reguarly claim to speak for all women.

The Conservative Women’s Network is made up of over 1,000 women in the Washington, DC, area who are policy analysts, stay-at-home mothers, students, organization presidents and more. Its monthly luncheons take place at the Heritage Foundation and are co-hosted by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

To view the speech, please use the YouTube player below.

[Correction: At approximately 8:14 in the video, Ms. Ma said, “The Oakland of my childhood had a whole lot of economic equality and fairness to go around.” She meant to say the China of her childhood.]

–Opinion by Ying Ma

The streets of Ferguson, Missouri, have finally calmed after two weeks of often violent protests against the deadly shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a police officer. Now is a good time to examine the claim made by a number of politicians and pundits that “root causes,” like poverty, poor education and racism, were the real culprits for Ferguson’s rioting.

Unlike many talking heads who sympathized with the rage of the protestors in Ferguson, I grew up in the inner city. I was outraged each day by the injustices I encountered, but I did not riot, loot, vandalize or commit arson. I went to troubled public schools and lived in poverty, but I ultimately prevailed. Perhaps those who gripe about social and racial injustice and pleaded for understanding for the mayhem in Ferguson should try to see the world from the perspective of law-abiding citizens who are the real victims when poor neighborhoods turn into zones of anarchy.

–Article by Ying Ma

In April, two black teenagers punched a Chinese immigrant, 59-year-old Tian Sheng Yu, in the mouth in downtown Oakland, California. He fell on his head, spent the next few days in critical care, and subsequently died. In late March, five black teenagers surrounded a 57-year-old Asian woman at a light rail bus stop in San Francisco; one of them grabbed her and threw her from the platform onto the rails before beating her. In January, black teenagers kicked and beat 83-year-old Huan Chen after he got off the same bus stop. He, too, died from his injuries.

Some of the perpetrators demanded money before they ran off laughing. Others, however, acted for no apparent reason aside from the satisfaction of perpetrating a beating.

After Mr. Tian Sheng Yu was attacked and killed in Oakland, his widow appeared on television with her eyes swollen, bravely trying to speak about her loss. Justice, she told reporters in Mandarin, would prevail if what happened to her family did not ever happen to anyone else. Days after her husband’s death, Mrs. Yu visited the congregation of a large black church in Oakland and said to the members in broken English, “We are one family.”

Soon thereafter, President Barack Obama conveyed his and Mrs. Obama’s thoughts and prayers to Mrs. Yu, and remarked on the “incredible grace and dignity” with which she dealt with the entire situation. It was an incredible moment: America’s first black president addressing the reality and tragedy of rampant black crime and acknowledging the suffering of its victims.

Unfortunately, this moment did not happen. It was all wishful thinking.

The black-on-Asian crimes described here are real—as real as they are grotesque. They took place in 2010, and many others similar to them have followed. Obama’s praise and prayers were also delivered, but not to Mrs. Yu or the families of the other Asian victims.
