From New American Meida:

SAN FRANCISCO -- California rapper YG is facing a nationwide backlash from the Chinese American community for his 2014 song "Meet the Flockers," reports the Chinese language World Journal.

The opening lyrics of the song – "First, you find a house and scope it out. Find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts" – appear to condone the targeting of Chinese homes for robbery.

Critics say the lines are in essence a how to manual for robbing Chinese and other Asian American homes and businesses. Protest organizers have already successfully gotten YouTube to remove the video. They have circulated a petition to ban the song from public media and have YG investigated by federal authorities. The petition has already garnered the necessary 100,000 signatures for it to go before the Obama administration.

Neither YG or his managers have issued a statement on the reaction.

Protests, meanwhile, have already taken place in states like Maryland, Texas, New York and Pennsylvania, where on October 15 more than one thousand Chinese Americans took to the streets after a spate of violent robberies targeting Chinese-owned business. Simultaneously, members of the Greater Philadelphia Chinese Gun Club organized a parade as a show of force, carrying shotguns, AR15s, AK15s, and handguns.
