The Karate Kid (2010)

In Columbia Pictures' The Karate Kid, 12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's (Taraji P. Henson) latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts the karate kid on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life. More »

    To The-movie-master,
    You asked, "How about the Chinese Triad which constantly cause trouble in LA?"
    The Triad operates mostly in Hong Kong , China and New York, not in LA.
    Is your wrong impression caused by playing too much gangster video games such as this one?

    YouTube search "True Crime Streets of LA - Walkthrough - Episode 1 - Triad Violence Part 2 of 2 "

    Dee dee dee, remember just because the name of the video game says "True crime" does not mean the crime portrayed in the game really happened in LA, OK?.

    Of course there are Asian gangs in LA , but the number of Asian gang members pales in comparison with the number of Hispanic, Black and White gang members.
    According to the article Gang in Wikipedia "By 1999, Hispanics accounted for 47% of all gang members , Blacks 31%, Whites 13%, Asians 6%."

    LA is the turf of Hispanic gangs but there has been rivalry from the black gangs. Just a couple years ago, there were numerous drive-by shooting murders committed by Hispanic and black gangsters against each other and innocent bystanders often became victims.
    Sure there are Asian gangsters in LA but most of the violent crimes in LA are committed by Hispanic and black gangsters. You don't want to know the truth because of your black racism. I do not say the same thing again to debunk you unless you tell the same lies and prejudice again that I have already debunked. So stop telling your lies and prejudice again and again.

    No, I'm not an innocent boy scout . I'm just an innocent person who has never had any tie with gangs.

    In fact I am the victim of robbery and assault committed by two black criminals in LA. But I'm not a racist moron like you are, so I'm not going to accuse you of acting as though you are an innocent boy scout just because I am the victim of some black criminals.

    Your lies and prejudice are not interesting. In fact your comments are getting more and more boring.
    Now here is something really interesting:
    YouTube search:
    Miss Swan Defends Gorgeous Pretty Nails Beauty Salon

    Since the New York Times reported the murder of the Hispanic immigrant Jose Osvaldo Sucozhanay by a group of thugs armed with a baseball bat in a hate crime by covering up the fact that the thugs were black, I think Miss Swan would be welcomed by black racist cops and reporters as a witness to a crime committed by a black criminal because all she can tell is "He looka like a man." Nobody would know the criminal is black.

    It is ridiculous that you tried to convince me that I needed protection from the black people against the Klan and then you threatened that you would call the Klan on me because I refused to buy your claim of protection. You have the same mentality of the gangsters who pretend to offer protection to mom and pop business owners from harm but then threaten them with harm if they don't submit to their extortion. You remind me of the guy who claims to offer protection to Miss Swan in the YouTube video : Swan Protection.

    Since your hypocrisy has brought about something so funny to entertain people here, I have decided to call you The-movie-master on condition that you don't do anything stupid against me here again.
    Take a chill pill, bro!

    how interesting that I name violent Asians in the USA and you still act as though though you're an innocent boyscout. You don't want to know the truth, bottom line hence you say the same sh*t over and over again.

    To The-movie-monkey,
    Your stupidity is just unbelievable.
    When I was talking about Asians being less prone to violence, I was talking about the Asians in the USA. I was not talking about Mongolians nor the Japanese back in their home lands who have well doc*mented history of invading other people and committing atrocities.

    It is absurd that you use Asians in other parts of the world to counter my argument that Asians (here in America) are less prone to violence. You should have understood that I was talking about the Asians in America because the statistics I referred to were about crimes in America.

    Asians here in America can be descendants of the Chinese workers imported to build railways. They can be people from various Asian countries who escaped from brutal communist regimes such as the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. They can be people who don't like to live under the totalitarian communist governments such as present day China. They can be Japanese who have nothing to do with attacking the USA in WW2. Unlike the black people who were forced to come to America as slaves, Asians came here voluntarily. So it is understandable that the Asians in America are less violent than blacks. That's a fact. If you deny that, you are ignoring the reason why the prisons are so full of violent black criminals.

    I am not saying that Chinese can't be violent . The communists under Mao Tse Tong were violent. The Chinese soldiers who killed the students demanding freedom in Tiananmen Square were violent. The Chinese party leaders who torture the Falun Gong members are violent. But the people who were victimized by the communists Chinese government were Chinese too and they were not violent.

    It is true that the totalitarian Chinese government is oppressing it's own people in the poorly paid factories in China and may be exploiting workers in Africa too. But again you are attacking the victims and the culprits with a sweeping attack. I have been squeezed as a factory worker and I have never been on the oppressors' side. Yet a moron like you still keep on accusing me by painting the guilt of the oppressors on me. Moreover, if you want to find out all the oppressors, you don't need to look far. The greedy politicians and business people in the US are the ones to be blamed as well. The Chinese did not force the Americans to move the factories into China. The greedy politicians and business people want to take advantage of the cheap labor there. So those greedy people in power in the US are just as guilty as the greedy people in power in China. Of course, without hypocrites like you who prefer pirate software from China over legal software, the oppressors in China would not be as egregious as they are. So blame yourself too, hypocrite.

    What do you mean saying "US information on Nuclear technology which you now use to produce your own missles". Pardon me, I have never stolen any US information on Nuclear technology and I have never produced my own missile, you moron. Oh, you are part Chinese too. Do you mean you are also partly responsible for stealing information and that there is a tiny missle in your home? Do you mean we should put all people of Arab and Pakistani descent in America in prison just because the terrorists who murdered about three thousand Americans in 9/11 have Arab ethnicity and the Time Square bomber is a Pakistani? I want to see the US government put those criminals in jail but your pro Japanese concentration camp mentality is desp*cable. You are part Japanese too. How would you like to be a part-time prisoner in a Japanese concentration camp during WWII when you did nothing to betray the USA?

    It is foolish of you to give the Great Wall of China as an example of Asians being violent prone. The Great Wall of China was built by the Chinese (Asians) to defend themselves against the aggressive and cruel Mongolians (also Asians). The Mongolians often massacred all the inhabitants in the cities they captured while the Chinese just wanted to live in peace away from the threat of the Mongolians. Your using the Shaolin monks as being violent is another example of your stupidity after your accusing Bruce Lee as a racist for making anti-Japanese-imperialists movies. The Kung Fu of the Shaolin monks is a means of self-defense, not to be confused with the violence committed by black gangsters who beat up and murder old Asian people and the violence committed by the black bullies who beat up Asian teens in South Philadelphia High School. I never said that the Chinese gang Triad are non-violent, in fact I pointed out that they are vicious criminals just like the black gangs in the US. In fact people of all races have bad elements that racist people like you can use to attack an innocent member of another race.

    It is wrong to accuse all the black people of being prone to violence just because the Uganda dictator Idi Amin committed genocide on his own people and 15 years later a rebel group from Uganda invaded northern Rwanda and committed a black on black genocide with 800,000 victims. It is also wrong to accuse all Asians as being prone to violence by citing the building of the Great Wall of China which separated the Asians who wanted to live in peace and the Asians who wanted to invade other countries.

    Your people attack your people too. So why don't you screw yourself with the same broad brush accusations?
    Painting the victims and the culprits with a broad brush is not intelligent argument. It is a sign of your stupidity and prejudice.

    I have already debunked your lie that during the Beijing Olympics "Every other race was allowed to partake in the events and after parties except the black members of the dream team."
    You are still unable to give the name of any black person banned from bars during the Beijing Olympics.
    You are still unable to give the name of any black athlete not allowed to partake in the events and after parties.
    No, you can't because the banning of only black people and black athletes did not happen, you moron. They are just rumors from freaks like you.

    What do you mean by saying "Your own people would rape and kill women as you saw fit. in earlier years". What incident are you talking about. No, I never saw such criminal acts as fit, you moronic false accuser. Oh, do you mean the Mongolians killing and raping Chinese women during their invasion of China? Man, you are really a freak too corrupted by prejudice. I'm a person of Chinese descent. Why don't you screw yourself by saying "My people would rape and kill women as I saw fit in the invasion of Rwanda"?

    Come on. Tell people more of your delusions, stupidity and prejudice, Mr. Movie Monkey.
    I would be glad to kick your ass again.

    Let's not talk about all Asians cause you're a piss poor representative for them all. THe Chinese alone. Have Killed millions of people. Why was the great wall built. As a military counter-strike to the Mongolians (Asian) ability of invading their cities. How about the Shaolin wars. That's not violent at all huh cause I mean who attacks a freaking monk.Oh wait you do. How about Tiananmen Square. thousands of civilians throwing rocks at the military and the military killing most of them. How about the unfaiir laws in China, That's not violent at all. How about the Chinese Triad which constantly cause trouble in LA, Hong Kong, etc..What about how the Chinese stole (Cause your people are so innocent) US information on Nuclear technology which you now use to produce your own missles (again not violent at all right). How about the torture of the Falun Gong,
    How about the mistreatment of the Chinese to the Africans in their own country.Zambian workers have horrible work environments and yet the Chinese just keep saying f*ckyou.

    Just give it up. The whole world now knows how racist your people truly are. from your Bruce lee films to your treatment of black athletes during theBeijing olympics,to your treatment of Africans in Africa to your violent tendencies in america with the triad, to even attacking your own people. I can just go on and on. You're no angel and your fight about this movie is pointless. Your own people would rape and kill women as you saw fit. in earlier years.

    To The-movie-monkey,
    You said you were done. I've not said that. So you are the loser who should shut up.

    You did not call all Asians monkey but just me? Oh, is that suppose to show you are none-racist in using it as an insult against only one person of a different ethnicity? If you were not stricken by the guilt of having committed a racist act that the racist white people had committed first on people of your kind, you certainly would not have posted a positive comment about monkeys to exonerate your name calling on me. No more excuses, racist hypocrite. You deserved to be called monkey because you are stupid and you admitted earlier that monkey was you name that you tried to give to me.

    What mob of 1? There is no mob at all, you moron. Asians are not obsessed with violence like the racist black people who like to riot.

    You are going to call the Klan on me? It's so funny. I have some so-called white power people asked to be my friend on YouTube because of my stance against the black racists. However, I declined because even though I don't like black power people, I don't like white power people either even when they want to be my friend.
    So how you gonna call the Klan on me?
    Are you going to say, "Oh, Mr. Klansman, I need your help to defeat an Asian guy called Simon who has been kicking my butt. I'm partially white. So would you help me brother?"
    Of course you need to tell him that Simon thinks Will Smith is a black racist and he hates to watch the scene in Men in Black in which Will Smith pretends to be smart by putting a bullet between the eyes of the image of a little white girl and justifies it by saying that the little white girl represents an alien monster in disguise because she should not be in the poor black neighborhood. You also need to tell him that you, on the other hand, think Will Smith is no racist and you enjoy that scene of Will Smith shooting the little white alien monster very much.

    So go ahead. Call the Klan on me.
    You must be smoking something to come up with this wacky idea to have your butt kicked.
