By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio

On one early Saturday morning a few days ago about 2 AM in the Little Neck-Douglaston neighborhood where I live, two white monsters in human clothes mauled 2 Chinese youths because of the color of their skin. The ugly screaming albinos yelled ethnic slurs at their innocent victims and telling them to “get out of our neighborhood, gooks.”

I can feel the pain of being racially attacked because I was also a victim in a political fight during the 2004 congressional elections at the hands of the racists and racial profilers infesting the Queens County Republican Party that refused to endorse my candidacy. Unlike most Asians who choose not to fight when attacked as taught by their parents reared in the Buddhist and Confucian philosophy, I originally came from the Philippines, particularly from the two provinces of Nueva Ecija and Cavite, and grew up in the “wild wild west of Tondo,” where law used to emanate from the barrel of the gun and the blade of a knife. But now I fight my enemies FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN.

Those two losers one of whom is even an outsider do not have an iota of a claim of ownership to the neighborhood. If they can only understand that their parents and grandparents originated from the God-forsaken countries in Europe where the people lived in squalor. If not, they must be the lost offspring of Hitler.

Anyway, I can still say that despite this unfortunate racial incident which is becoming a pattern in my neighborhood following an attack of stone-throwing at a Korean Presbyterian Church in Little Neck, the local Police did a magnificent job in quickly arresting the perpetrators and properly charging them for criminal acts as a hate crime subject to severe penalties. Yet I give the credit to Mayor Mike Bloomberg responsible for law and order to be enforced in the greatest city in the world.

Isn’t it a fact that the Mayor’s ancestors were once victims of the most brutal racist in history, Adolf Hitler?
