TBF...I have seen non-Chinese people do this.
True, but...
This sort of thing happens way way more frequently with Chinese people.  It's a cultural thing.

Don't know about New York but it is illegal here in California and has been addressed before by the police. Call the police and make them come out if you have the patience for that sweet sweet revenge.

Not quite sure how that is quantifiable or even provable.

I'm less concerned about Chinese lady camping on a parking spot or Indian guy parking behind your car in the parking lot, versus people who'd stone kangaroos to death to make them jump.  Back in 1982 I used to go fishing with a neighbor and he would kill or take home every catch.  If he caught a fish that he didn't want, he'd slam the fish on the hook in the water or ground repetitively, because the fish inconvenienced him and "need to be punished".  He also took his brother's rabbit to Santa Ana river and shot it with a blow gun (now illegal in CA) -- he blamed the rabbit for being too stupid for not running and need to be punished.

I don't think culture can really justify someone who wants to "punish" fish, rabbit, and kangaroos.  I've known a number of hunters and they simply look at doves and wild turkey as dinner, not something that need to be punished.

Pull forward and push her back.  The car will win.  Either she will continue backing up, or else she will have to lay down in front of the car, at which time I would physically move her out of the way to prevent her from getting hurt.  The three women won because they didn't give up the way the weakling driver did.

That will get you a straight to jail card. Touching her with your car or moving her against her will is considered assault with battery. Actually using your car may have enhanced charges since the car is considered a weapon in that case. You may feel justified at the time but it will get you in a heap of legal trouble.

Theoretically, perhaps.  In practice, not so much.  You see, people are cowards.
They're afraid to take action, even when it is clearly warranted.  "Uh oh!  Be careful" is carried to the nth degree any more, and the world is the poorer for it.

When is the last time you personally stuck your neck out more than you think the average schlep would?  This should be good.

It pains me to contribute to this thread... yet I have too many stories from just a few months of living around FCB than I'd like to admit.

Quite easy.  It just takes opening your eyes and paying attention.

The Chinese went through a great famine where tens of millions of folks died. I think that traumatic event was carried forward through their genes across multiple generations.

For that reason, that would explain the behavior:


So did the Russians.  They don't act like that.
Nearby, the people of India exist on the most meager of rations by the scores of millions.  Do you see them acting in such a way?    Vietnamese are overwhelmingly thin and many are malnourished.   But they're polite by comparison, and Vietnam shares a border with China.  My dental technician was born in Vietnam, in a shanty with a dirt floor.   I play tennis with two brothers born in North Vietnam.  My neighbor is Vietnamese.  Don't try to excuse inexcusable conduct.

The uncivilized Chinese behavior is a result of their political system. There are four main types of Chinese in the world: Hong Kongers, Taiwanese, Singaporeans, and Mainland Chinese. The first three types are no more or less uncivilized than any other people in the world. Only Mainland Chinese are disproportionately "special".
