Sons of laundrymen and cooks making it in USA
The Chinks or Chinese were once discriminated, marginalized and oppressed by the racist European Americans in the early years of the American history. They have laws that forbade Chinaman from the more respectable professions and degraded them to just railroad coolies, laundrymen and cooks. And for centuries the westerns have been rubbishing the Chinaman as good for nothing drags of the human race, untalented, no creativity, and plain stupid, through this racist exclusion. The laundryman tag resurfaced recently in a brawl when a racist Brit used it to insult a local Chinese of the same stock as the Chinky laundrymen and cooks.
The discrimination of Chinaman was nationwide and across the western world, and Chinaman was treated as a good for nothing breed by the West. Even the unthinking Africans and Asians look down on the Chinaman till today. They share the same perception painted by the West that Chinaman are useless, brainless, good for nothing, invented nothing, uncouth ruffians and peasants. Only the civilized descendants of the Chinaman in Sinkieland are different, or they thought they are different. They regarded themselves as a different breed, that they are as polished, cultured and sophisticated as the westerners, speaking western tongues.
Today, a Chinaman by the name of Donald Tan, actually an eminent ophthalmologist, a Singaporean, has been appointed as head of the renowned Cornea Society in the USA. This is the kind of recognition that is rare even today. Prof Tan is at the forefront of cornea transplant technology and has developed many procedures and instruments that were used world wide and named after him. Among his contributions are the DALK(Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty) Tan Scissors and a procedure called Tan Endoglide.
If Donald Tan would have been born in those ugly racist American days, (today many descendents of Chinaman are conducting leading edge research and technologies in the US today), they would probably end up as laundry boys or cooks. And they will be very familiar with laundry tags on the clothes of their European customers.
The world has changed so much and the laundryman and cook tags are starting to fall off. But Chinks are still Chinks. The difference is whether they are PRC Chinks or Sinkie Chinks. No matter what designer suits they put on or what famous pubs or bars they patronized, or what European company they keep, unless they are as good as Professor Donald Tan, behind their backs they would still be called Chinks. It is not funny to read in the blogs that Sinkie Chinks are spitting at PRC Chinks.
