News comes tonight that police in New Jersey have arrested the main who evaded security, walking where he wasn’t supposed to, causing massive delays and stranding thousands of people at Newark Airport. Surprise, surprise, he’s from China!
In news reports, such as this one in the New York Times, Haisong Jiang is wrongly identified as being “of Piscataway, N.J.” or a “New Jersey” man. A little digging reveals he is from China and is merely a student at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He has also alternately been identified as a “Rutgers University graduate student.” So, more correctly it should be said he is “From China and is studying in New Jersey.” If I were arrested in Shanghai, China, I GUARANTEE the news would not say “Shanghai Man Arrested,” it would say “Foreigner/American Arrested, He Lives in Shanghai.” Check any Chinese news-site if you don’t believe me (such as the Taipei Times). It is always “Foreigner Arrested” in their stories.
His photo and contact details are publicly available on the school lab’s website:
Give Haisong a call. Ask him what’s up and why he’s such a dumbass. Send him a polite email, reminding him to behave himself when he’s in a foreign country on an F-1 STUDENT visa (should they cancel his student visa? they DO deport people with Green Cards if they get arrested).
This of course illustrates a MASSIVE problem. NOTE: He is not American. Americans know how to behave in airports. They are aware of the current, difficult state of affairs with transportation security and behave accordingly. We know how to obey the laws and don’t try to make short cuts in these kinds of situations. And, what did he THINK would happen, in this current climate, if he broke the rules? Of course it would create chaos for thousands of travelers.
But, he is from CHINA. They do not care about other people in China. They have 5 kinds of relationships in the Chinese system (based on Confucian teachings). These are things like parent to child, teacher to student, etc. There is NO relationship for Chinese people with strangers. Strangers are invisible. “I am not related to you so I could care less what happens to you” is the thinking. In China when there is a traffic accident, people come running, gleefully asking “Is anyone dead?” But, no one will offer assistance. Because in China you are taught not to care about others/strangers.
What was this guy doing? He was a nerdy guy who wanted to meet up with his Fobby nerdy chick. So what does he do? Break the law. Because he is NOT American and he doesn’t care. In the Chinese parts of my city, I sometimes see parents letting their young boys pee in the street. Why? Because they don’t care! This is not their country, you are a stranger, so why would they care what you think?
Do you know what Chinese people call Americans IN THIS COUNTRY (it is what they also call white people in China)? “Waiguoren.” This means “foreigner.” I have been called foreigner MANY times in the U.S. Why? Because 1. They don’t care about you; 2. They don’t feel they are American; 3. They make NO effort to assimilate.
This guy is the ULTIMATE FOB. Just take a look at his Facebook page (here). He has 113 friends and ALL OF THEM are Chinese. Not a single one of them is White, Black or whatever. What would you say if you saw a Facebook page for a White guy living in China and NONE of his friends were Chinese? You would think maybe 1. He doesn’t like Chinese people or 2. He really hates China and is not trying to fit in or assimilate. So what are we to make of Haisong Jiang? Are there no “Americans” or “foreigners” (as he would refer to us) in New Jersey for him to make friends with?
This whole case is just a classic example of a Chinese guy who doesn’t want to play by the “White devil”‘s rules, doesn’t have any regard for anyone but himself, and has no interest in behaving the way normal people do in this country. Hilariously, he has also shown that just like the drivers back home, this Chinese guy shows they can’t walk the right way either!
Examples abound of selfish, imprudent, dangerous behavior by Chinese travelers. Here is an hysterically funny one of a Chinese woman throwing a fit at an airport in Hong Kong because she missed a flight (youtube). This is really typical behavior of all Chinese, but especially the new “entitled” class who are no longer peasants and can afford to go overseas. I could bore you all day with my stories of China’s travelers behaving badly. The press has been blathering forever about the “rise of China” and all of their economic achievement. But we all KNOW money doesn’t buy class. The rise of China means more and more of these people going out in the world, acting despicably and fucking things up for the rest of us. Are we ready for this?
They really are some of the worst people. And the Newark Airport gatecrasher is one of the WORST PEOPLE.
