Throughout the world, there are dozens of fruits that are commonly recognized and consumed more than others. Some of the more popular fruits are apples, oranges, strawberries and bananas. The jackfruit is a fruit which is native to parts of Southern and Southeast Asia. Large and prickly, it is a rare fruit that's not regularly eaten or tasted by society. We wanted to use a fruit that symbolized and represented the fact that Asian Americans are rarely exposed in national media here in the United States. All Asian Americans are deeply rooted with their background and culture that date back to their original countries. We added a twist to the name by combining 'Jackfruit' and 'Root'. And that's the story of how the name Jackfroot was born.

22-year-old tennis superstar #NaomiOsaka is officially the highest-paid female athlete in history.

According to Forbes, the Japanese-Haitian athlete earned a total of $37.4 million USD from prize money and endorsements between June 2019 and May 2020. Osaka is currently backed by 15 endorsement partners ranging from Nissan Motor, Shiseido and Yonex, with almost all of them worth seven figures every year. On top of the wins and endorsements, the tennis star’s new and extremely rare Nike contract — which paid her more than $10 million USD — doesn’t require her to play matches in full Nike apparel, giving her space to sign “patch” deals with All Nippon Airways, MasterCard and Nissin Foods.

Her earnings effectively overthrow Serena Williams, who’s held the title for four years, by $1.4 million USD. Osaka also set a new record for a female athlete’s recorded earnings in a year, surpassing Maria Sharapova‘s $29.7 million USD record in 2015. Osaka and Williams, however, are both included in 2020’s 100 highest-paid athletes list (the full roster scheduled to be released in June) at Nos. 29 and 33 respectively — the first time that two women have joined the ranking since 2016.

“To those outside the tennis world, Osaka is a relatively fresh face with a great back story,” David Carter, a sports business professor at USC’s Marshall School of Business, said. “Combine that with being youthful and bicultural, two attributes that help her resonate with younger, global audiences, and the result is the emergence of a global sports marketing icon.”

🚨RACIST ALERT🚨
This video was shared to someone’s IG story which chooses to remain anonymous. He mentioned this man started randomly yelling and verbally attacking the Asian woman out of nowhere with racist rants. I feel so bad for the woman. It’s sad that we will most likely be dealing with things like this for years to come. 😔😔 If anyone knows the identity of the black man, please DM or email us.

Update from #SanLeandro Police. 52 year old #NancyArechiga of San Leandro was located and arrested but let go due to the current state bail schedule. She has been cited and released from custody. SMH... It looks like Asians can’t get any real justice for any hate crimes or attacks happening to us lately. This is crazy...

Some of the topics we discussed include:
• Normalization of racism towards Asians.
• The unresolved tension between Asians and other POCs
• Yellow Peril 2.0: The Anti-Asian Western propaganda making a comeback with the coronavirus.
• People gaslighting Asians when we talk about our struggles.
• Solutions towards protecting our community, especially the elderly, women, and children.
• Lack of Asian-American history taught in the US educational system.
• Self defense: Not letting people harass or attack us.

Wtf!!! 😡🤬 Prosecutors charged three teenage boys with low-level assault and harassment who were allegedly involved in an incident where an Asian grandmother was attacked, reports Twin Cities. The attack occurred at the Dale Street Green Line station around midnight in St. Paul, Minnesota on May 4th. Shocking video of the attack surfaced earlier this month which showed three teens surrounding an elderly woman before one of the teens jump kicked her in the face.

The video went viral on social media and people were furious with what happened. Less than 24 hours later, three teenage boys were arrested in connection to the crime.

Prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to charge the three 15-year-olds with a felony-level charge. Additionally, they found that there was no indication that “racial or ethnic bias was involved.”

Not every person in China is racist towards Africans or dark skinned people. There’s all of these dumb IG accounts like @balleralert @thesavoyshow @theshaderoom that keep posting these stupid videos painting a bad light. I actually went to China once with a group of friends and one of them was black. I have actually video footage and photos of Chinese people and tourists looking at him as if they’ve never seen a black person before. (I’ll probably edit this and upload it sometime soon.) It was interesting to see and as if he was some celebrity or famous person lol. Some people wanted to take photos with him, while some others were touching or petting him as if he’s some zoo animal. People were showing love and no one showed any hate or discrimination at all.

A black nationalist group called the New Black Panther Party reportedly gathered outside two Chinese restaurants Tuesday in Washington, D.C. to protest the Chinese government’s expulsion of Africans from their homes and hospitals, according to a Mother Jones writer.

Nearly a dozen protestors dressed in black and carrying a pan-African flag gathered in front of Yum’s II Chinese restaurant and Da Hong Pao Restaurant and Bar on 14th Street in D.C. Tuesday, Stephanie Mencimer described on Twitter. She also posted photos and a video of the protest.

The group’s leader is heard speaking through a megaphone. “Happy birthday to Malcolm X,” he said, and the other protestors raised their fists. “If it wasn’t for him and all the revolutionaries, we would not be here. We’d be enslaved.”

Mencimer quotes someone saying “Donald Trump’s not wearing a mask. Why should we?” A woman whose affiliation with the group is unclear explained to Mencimer that the group were there to protest the Chinese government’s treatment of Africans, Mencimer writes.

Scores of Africans living in the Chinese city of Guangzhou were evicted from their homes over claims they were importing coronavirus into the city, numerous sources reported in April.

The New Black Panther Party is a militant black power movement and was rejected by the Black Panther Party of the 1960s and 1970s for espousing racist and anti-Semitic beliefs. The party has blamed Jews for the 9/11 terrorist attacks and slavery, and the group claims that white men have a secret plan to commit genocide against non-white races, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

It’s unclear why the protestors decided to gather in front of the two restaurants, which serve Americanized Chinese and Cantonese food respectively and are owned by two brothers, Jerry Chen and Joe Chen, according to the Washingtonian.

The Chinese embassy, where human rights protestors have gathered in the past to hold demonstrations rebuking the Chinese government, is located roughly 4 miles away.

HELL YEAH!! 🔥🔥🔥 @yadongsong

It didn’t come easy but Song Yadong remained perfect in the Octagon with a win over Marlon Vera to kick off the main card at UFC on ESPN 8.

A prospect training out of Team Alpha Male, Song used a fast counter striking game to get the better of Vera during many of their exchanges on the feet, although it was a back-and-forth war throughout all three rounds. Ultimately, the judges all scored the fight 29-28 for Song, who moves to 5-0-1 in the UFC.

“I did all I could do right now,” Song said after taking the fight on short notice. “I was prepared for three rounds. My opponent was a really good fighter.”

It was truly a battle between a pair of bantamweights moving up to featherweight for one night only, Song appeared to be a little faster with his striking, which led to many of his best shots connecting on target. While Vera was constantly moving forward, it was Song who countering with stiffer punches and still finding a home for his kicks to the legs as well.

In return, Vera just refused to back down as he continued to press the action and inviting Song into a series of fiery exchanges. It was in those brawling exchanges in close where Vera did the most damage but when Song was allowed to fight at distance, he paid for it.

With seconds remaining in the fight, Vera dragged Song into a grappling exchange that saw the fighters scrambling for position, looking to score points with the judges after a razor-close fight throughout

While the decision could have just as easily gone the other way, it was Song who got the nod as he extends his overall unbeaten streak to nine fights in a row.

Lol damnnn.

The chef of a well-known German restaurant stirred up outrage when he announced his eatery’s reopening by declaring, “No Chinese wanted,” according to a report.

Jean-Claude Bourgueil, a renowned cook at the French eatery Im Schiffchen in Düsseldorf, made the controversial comment on Facebook after the business was shuttered for months during the country’s #coronavirus lockdown.

“We start on Friday, but only with our bistro. No Chinese wanted!!!” the 73-year-old chef wrote on Wednesday, according to dw.com.

But the cook quickly found himself in hot water, with observers blasting the comment as “racist” and “sickening.”

“Im Schiffchen should be ashamed,” one critic fumed. “What Jean Claude Bourgueil said is just sickening. A wimp and liar.”

Bourgueil later apologized, calling it a “thoughtless statement” that he “formulated completely wrong.” He claimed the remark was not in reference to Chinese people, but rather the “dictators” and “strongmen” in the country.

“I am a child of the French revolution and detest all dictators in this world. Dictators that oppress their citizens and punish people with death,” he posted in a statement, according to the paper.

“People of nine different nationalities work at our restaurant. My wife is Asian and I myself am a foreigner in this land,” it continued. “Rest assured, I can be accused of many things, but certainly not racism and I do not tolerate it.”

The restaurant’s Facebook now page appears to be disabled and could not be accessed as of Friday afternoon.
Asian people in Germany and across the world have faced widespread discrimination due to the spread of the coronavirus, which is believed to have first emerged in Wuhan, China.

Hey you racist bastard, why dont you posts topics or videos about blk ppl getting randomly attacked, kicked out of homes and beaten in China?
With Coronavirus set among us, I noticed more and more hate crimes occurring across the nation among Asian community. Please take a look at this video https://www.facebook.com/jackfroot/videos/1225204997820801/ I'm sharing with you in hope you can help bring justice to this poor lady who was kicked in the face for minding her business. This is absolutely no ground for forgiveness! Please excuse the language and my attitude right now; but I have no place in my heart for HUMAN to treat another HUMAN being this way. Regardless of race! Did these black kids forget back when their race were once abhor?! The blacks were once regard with disgust and hatred. Did they forget about that?! What a disgrace to the ancestors who've fought for their race dignity. Absolutely despicable!!!
