Is Sho Tay Being Two-Faced On The Racism Question?

The Pasadena Star News has finally published an article covering the virulent political rhubarb taking place in Arcadia. As this area's only daily paper, and one that often likes to proclaim that "Local News Matters," this had been seen by many as a serious lapse on their part.

However, they did at last jump in, and it was a decent enough effort. There were a couple of errors, but who's perfect? It's why God put erasers on pencils, and forgave all the sinners.

Obviously the Star News worked hard to take what they believed was the middle road. They did not choose any sides, or make any untoward and rash judgement calls. At least they didn't in any obvious sense. However, that could be because they didn't have the entire story. There is something more, a lot more, and we will share that with you. But we're going to show you something else first.

On the question of racism, the paper did get it right. They also got Sho Tay to admit, and on the record no less, that the opposition to his becoming Mayor has nothing to do with race. Here is the relevant passage from their article, "Racism, campaign fraud accusations slung in Arcadia" (link).

At that meeting, Tay’s supporters and opponents made their presence known. His supporters had it firmly in their minds that those who would keep Tay from being mayor were racists.

“We are here to tell everyone we Chinese Americans will not tolerate racism,” 24-year resident Grace Kwok said. She then asked Mayor Peter Amundson to “show you respect the Chinese-American community and stand against racism” by voting in favor of Tay’s mayorship.

Tay said Friday that he has told his Asian supporters that he does not believe the criticisms he has faced are racially motivated but understands why they think that way, given that Tay is the only Asian council member in a city that is more than 59 percent Asian.

The city, which asked the D.A. to investigate, recently mailed in materials for the office to review, City Attorney Stephen Deitsch reported to the council last week. He didn’t have an estimate of how long it would take.

Tay expects the investigation results will vindicate him, Tay said. “They felt I did something wrong, but that’s their opinion,” Tay said. “I just feel bad for Peter (Amundson) — he has to do an extra 45 days of work as mayor; but for the good of the community, that’s what we needed.”

For the record, it isn't really the District Attorney that is looking at the most relevant corruption charges in this matter, it is the Fair Political Practices Commission in Sacramento. At least as far as the 2018 election goes, the voter fraud issue mostly involves others. Or so it appears as of now.

That said, if any Councilmember was facing the kind of charges that Sho Tay is facing, I am sure their ascension to Mayor Of Arcadia would be given the same appropriate amount of scrutiny. No matter who they are.

In that Star News passage Sho Tay is right on the money. His statement there is moderate, fair, and worthy of commendation.

However, here is the part I believe the Star News reporter didn't know about. And neither did I, for that matter. That is until a sharp-eyed reader forwarded me several screenshots. Here is one if them.


As you may be aware, the Voice of Arcadia, which is found on Facebook, has been the most bizarre pro-Sho Tay site anywhere. They are essentially claiming that there is a vast race-based conspiracy out there involving just about everyone in the government and press, and whose sole intent is to deny Sho Tay the Mayorship.

So the revelation contained in the above screenshot, that Sho Tay is one of a handful of Voice Of Arcadia administrators, is important. It means that everything appearing on this site is there subject to his approval.

Here is just one example of the many unsubstantiated and uncited charges that have been anonymously posted on the Voice of Arcadia Facebook page recently. This apparently with Sho Tay's OK.


So here is where we're at. For the Pasadena Star News article, Sho Tay says racism has played no role in the decision to delay his appointment as Mayor of Arcadia. Yet on the Voice of Arcadia page on Facebook, where Sho Tay serves as one of its few administrators, unfounded ad hominem charges of racism are made over and over again. It is practically all that gets published there.

So which is it for Sho Tay? What he said in the Pasadena Star News article, or what he allows to be posted on that one note Voice of Arcadia site he helps to run? Something that goes out to an entirely different audience?

These are two distinctly different faces planted on the same head.

    2. I am glad you published more and more facts related, you are in the right track, almost there.

      I observe Sho Tay has been extremely consistent with race issue, he never said racism in any of his speeches or any open to public talks or writings.

      Voice of Arcadia has a way of too many administrators obviously, they all have freedom of speeches individually.

      Whatever published there doesn't mean Sho said anything like that unless he signs his name there.

      But I look over it, he said nothing so far. I don't know even he reads it or not. It looks to me, if they have you as their Facebook friend, you might be one of their administrators as well.

      Besides, Sho got most of his votes from white people in 2014. Right now, more and more white people have been becoming to support Sho, in addition to most of Asian people support him.

      Many Caucasian friends feel what Sho has contributed to the community, is more sincere, logical, legal, and constructive than other council members in Arcadia.

      You could examine what April Verlato has said in social media. Please have a comparison then,you will know the huge differences of qualifications of each person and who should be our leader now.

    5. An administrator of a Facebook page has the power to remove posts by others to that page. A Friend cannot. Sho had to sign up from his Facebook page to be an admin, and each time he logs into Facebook it notifies him of all the pages he is administrator of, and what is being posted.

    6. Sho Tay is POST Certified, so he is a cop. Voice of Arcadia has pictures of Sho Tay socializing with other cops at one of those “tip a cop” scams at Starbucks. Cops supporting other cops.

    7. @11:33am, I am sorry taking me so long to reply to you. Here you go, one of examples of City Council member April Verlato's communication with residents in Nextdoor in early April this year. There were many of her writings in various places. There were also videos in Arcadia City government website under city council meetings, please select a date to review it if you like to know more about her.

      ******
      Hi, Ms. Seymour,

      I saw your second post and realized you are our council member Verlato. That makes things easier to explain.

      I would like to quote your words here. "I find it ironic that David Liu finds it so offensive that someone damaged Harbicht signs when David Liu himself grabbed a lawfully placed Saving Arcadia sign, folded it up and put it in the trash right in front of me while he was wearing his VIP uniform representing the city of Arcadia. David Liu is a hypocrite."

      Even though your message is so short, but too many things against our rules or laws. The first sentence, "I find it ironic that David Liu finds it so offensive that someone damaged Harbicht signs". This is nothing related with David at all, he just published it to the public about the criminal activity in our cummunity. The case is a criminal one, public offense which is violated our laws already, it is under criminal investigation.

      As a council member, you have a fiduciary duty that you owe to the public. Obeying our laws is our residents' basic requirements. Leading residents to Fighting against the crime is expected from all public workers, especially our city council members. I am expecting your condemnation to this crime at least.

      But from what you said, do you imply crimes are also a type of lawful actions, I am fully confused by our law system now. It makes me wondering, what has been in your mind exactly? Do you mean you are supporting this type of action? Will you do the same action which you believe it is also lawful? I would appreciate you for your letting me know it.

      What you wrote is just too much for me to comment all, it makes reasonable people think how you can run the city council work every day.

      To save everyone some time, let's look at your last word, "David Liu is a hypocrite." How could you, as a council member, call people names? Don't you know how to express your words politely? If you understand what is wrong truly, you should be able to explain it to them professionally, without any unlawful terms, just like how I explain to you on what you have done wrong.

      I wish all of us could respect each other, and start from ourselves, especially you, our city council member, a leader of our residents. I hope you will agree with me on it.

      Thanks.

    12. @4:32pm.

      You can have any speeches. That is your freedom as a resident here.

      But there is fine line between residents and officials on what you can talk. Leaders are role models of us. Those people build the characters of our community. We don't want to live in a place, every one starts name-calling to each other.

      I feel strongly you are one of them struggling to improve this community. That is why you have been so seriously discussing this topic.

      To me, David has been too honest to make people think, can this be real?

      Yes. David Liu is one of most trust worthy persons I have ever met.

      It took me five years long time to feel this way. It may take you more time than mine for it since you might have preexisting bias towards him already.

      I Wish you all well, never giving up to know more about him. I am sure you will feel graceful to him sooner or later.

      Thank you.

      Agreed. Poor leaders or volunteers.

      Why don't we start praising each leader or volunteer, instead of making them feel unworthy serving us? It hurts the feeling of all of our volunteers.

      It makes the true leaders more outstanding instead of using up their energy and defeating them with bad words. Let's start from tomorrow in a constructive way.

      Shall we?

    15. 4:53, sorry, but Tay is certainly no role model for me. You know, it’s ok to not like Tay, right? If you really listened to the bad things he’s said and the bad actions he’s done, you’ll come to the same conclusion.

      Delete
    16. @5:22pm,

      That is okay. Nobody is perfect. When leaders won how many votes, they need to look at how many votes they lost, that is the place where to improve to serve the people better.

      That is why we need repent ourselves daily. When we are humble enough, we don't see other people's mistakes, we strive to improve ourselves.

    17. 5:48, let’s take each Tay ‘mistake’. Start with him knowingly referring to Jolly Wu as a crippled. Is that acceptable? That’s ok for him to say that and then become mayor? He he repents that statement then he’s again a good guy?

      Delete
    18. @7:05pm

      It is not acceptable for any reasonable person to say that. If you have observed Sho's speeches, you should know Sho is among the most reasonable person in the city council and he never goes extremes on any thing.

      During the city council meeting, I heard Sho Tay said he didnot said anything like that. He has been waiting for people to show him the proof of what he said. Nobody has any proof of it to show him yet. It was a rumor only. What is the point for us to pass the rumor around right now?

      Please remember, Rumor should be stopped by the wise.

    24. @12:51 Sho Tay is no longer in VOA admin, I believe Bob has nothing to do with it as well according to the vocabulary they use often never popped up in VOA.

      These two people are gentleman, who will do not only what is right, they will do something to make sure people feel comfortable with it as well. Great leaders in my view.

      Younger people they have a way to express their feelings about things, that is a smoother way to let us seniors know it is time to make a change. I see we use a lot of less cursing words here after we saw their feelings. The common effort is making all of us more matured and more Christian like.

      VOA is a mirror for our own spiritual improvement. I suggest, Let's compete who will be more popular in personality between Sierra Madre Tattler and Voice of Arcadia.

      Delete
    25. The Tattler exposed Sho's hypocrisy. Being an admin for the VOA hate site was a direct contradiction with what he said in the Pasadena Star News. If The Tattler hadn't called him out he'd still be there.

    26. 12:04pm,

      Every organization prefers to get the best people in. Obviously, everyone in VOA team felt Sho is the best leader in this area and they added him in.

      And it is hard to refuse when they have good intentions to make things right.

      But Sho also cares about your feelings as well. As a leader he has been making sure reaching out and helping most people out as much as possible. We need appreciate his contribution to our community instead of thinking about him always negatively. Do you agree?

      By the way, I live in Arcadia, which city do you live in?

Very similar to what Sho Tay has been experiencing, you are another great person we all should respect.

      I don't believe appreciating people will require our minds to spin around. It is natural, comfortable enjoyful moment. I feel graceful having so many caring people in our city and neighbor cities.

    1. Sho openly supported two Caucasian candidates in the whole community. No matter what your perception is, Sho is a friend to any race. The fact is many white people have been speaking for him during city council meeting. People paid attention to what he had done for the community, not what he claimed.

      The racism in our community was created and led by one of Sierra Madre Tattler Anonymous writers first and many other Save the highland group members, which has been dividing our community. Fortunately, Mr. Lee Marshall apologized to Asian Community in last city council meeting. He is a great man who could make corrections once he realized mistakes.

      But Administrator of Sierra Madre Tattler might need to pay attention to it now, since many comments published in this blog are touching the FBI investigation scope related to Hate Crime.

    2. @10:29pm

      I received the following message from Voice of Arcadia. Its contents looks fine to me, all of them seemed basic facts of what have been going on in our city , it didn't bother me much, or in any specific ways so far, so I don't have any intention to become an admin of Voice of Arcadia.

      But I suggest Beacon Media sign into it and give a try. Why not? So you don't have to look into it from outside, you will be a part of it directly, and you could try to work together to admin the Voice of Arcadia.

      ****** From VOA,
      "If you aim to promote social awareness of unity and harmony, culture diversity and tolerance, you are welcome to join Voice of Arcadia and even can become an Admin if you are willing to contribute your time or good ideas. At VOA, no one needs/is supposed to stay anonymous and hide their identities; everything is transparent and ready to be tested by public scrutiny. That’s a basic starting point when a publication can call itself trustworthy and truthful. Moderator should give a brief training on setting up account ID."
      ****** End of Quote from VOA

      Good luck in the new broad adventure to anyone who would give a try! That might be a good starting point to work together and unite the community. Please let us all know your progress if you choose to do so.

      Otherwise, Arcadia City government might have to go to other news channels to publish their official messages required by law, ie. Pasadena Star News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune,or even create its own media...to avoid expensive lawsuit on racism I guess.

      Finding a way to work together doesn't always mean compromise, it is most likely an improvement of communication within the community , an understanding what the majority population which are Asians now, think of and feel about, and an improvement to whatever you have been doing.

      Please No more finger pointing to people not related with it. Sho Tay is only one person, there are five council members in this tiny city, Sho could not be on top of every thing, every one has limitations, we should have set up proper expectations on all of council members in our conversations and keep them constructive.

      Please save our energy, to fight currently serious safety issues together in our city.

      Thanks for your time and effort.

      To keep students excited and enthusiastic in learning is the most important thing in education. Higher points are by product of education, we should not focus on those. Our high school common core program should be replaced by personalized learning program as soon as possible.

      However most of those HPO facts stated here were very close to facts, a kind of replicated from the city website published prior to the public meetings.

      In reality, I am sorry to say that there were a few of "facts" on city website having some rooms to be improved, which were elaborated by the speakers during the November 2nd meeting and the public meeting after, most of those were not included in this article unfortunately.

    10. It is necessary for us to clarify something about historic preservation ordinance draft now,
      1/ Residents should be informed about its draft, but they were not informed properly, at least 80% property owners had never heard of it. This itself was against the law, depriving people's right to make decision on their own property.
      2/ There are 189 resources included into historic preservation draft. But the real fact is it includes almost 3000 properties now, not mentioning the list will increase as time goes by. It is against land use law, we have to avoid any lawsuits.
      3/ Historic preservation ordinance draft was believed as racial discrimination during the meeting. There were history in Arcadia about it, which makes reasonable people believe firmly it is a type of racism.
      4/ Early houses built in Village and Lower Rancho areas are against any current building codes, and many older houses are in the urgent to be repaired or even replaced now because of irreparable pipelines and other serious structure issues.So many houses should not be listed under historic preservation at the first place.
      5/ The article did not clarify the Mills Act Property Tax Abatement Program to the public. There was extremely misleading info in the city website. During the public meeting, City stated it only planned to compensate 3 out of roughly 3000 houses in the tax relief program.

      6/Arcadia was almost among the very last cities incorporated in US, there have existed laws to preserve any historic properties in either national level, or state level to distinct ourselves from the rest of LA cities even without creating a new historic preservation ordinance. We just need continue to file more applications for historic properties.

      Therefore, recognized by raising hands, over 70% of hundreds of people attended two public meetings, majority of them who also loved to keep our Arcadian special history, but were against creating new historic preservation ordinance.

    11. Among those 189 structures mentioned above, there were 11 historic districts, which includes 2500 individual properties (meaning houses), majorities located in five HOA areas and some parts in the south, all of them are in the gerrymandering shape in order to qualify for the historic percentage requirement.

      Among the same 189 structures, there were also 127 individual properties have been classified under national preservation standard, state historic preservation standard, or local standard without home owners' knowledge.

      Our city's way of creating historic preservation ordinance, especially the 11 districts, is against land use law and according to a land use attorney, it was only used by one race trying to get rid of another race in American history and it will put our city under possible lawsuit.

    13. Arcadia Historic preservation ordinance is a type of racism for the following three facts.

      3-(1) in 1920s, our advertisement was like this, "We protect you with building and race restrictions for the character of this tract can be judged by the type of homes in the surrounding territory. "

      3-(2) By the beginning of June 1942, the Santa Anita Assembly Center reached full capacity with a population of almost 19,000 disenfranchised Japanese Americans, no matter where they were born, which generations of immigrants they were, how long they lived here in US. They were removed from their homes and their properties permanently and put into Arcadia race track concentration camp. They were not compensated until this time of our writing. In 1910, Japanese students were among the largest population in First Avenue School. Now we almost don't know which students are Japanese at all.

      3-(3) Till in the beginning of 1980s, no colored people was allowed to walk alone in HOA areas (tract home areas in the past - now historic districts) after sunset without Caucasian neighbor's accompany.

      Thank you for asking. That is a great question. But I am Sorry, I don't have any proper examples to exchange with you right now. The fact is that history might repeat itself.

      A good example to help you understand the concept might be the Monkey Trial (Scope Trial in 1925). The trial publicized the Fundamentalist–Modernist Controversy, which set Modernists, who said evolution was not inconsistent with religion,[4] against Fundamentalists, who said the word of God as revealed in the Bible took priority over all human knowledge. The case was thus seen as both a theological contest and a trial on whether "modern science" should be taught in schools. (source from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopes_Trial, 5/8/2018). The case result was reversed in 1986 in Arkansas. So we have been teaching evolution science in high school again since approximately 1986 based on case law, in California and nationally, after 60 years long break, which made our modern space technology lagged behind USSR in 1950s.

      That is why we have to make sure we avoid any conditions to let racism happen here again or doing something to let people feel about that we might be in that way.

      Do you agree with my explanation to it?

    16. 1925 was over 90 years ago. Again, do you have anything you can cite from the modern era?

      We are talking about the frequency that history might be repeated. Here is a metaphor for you about your modern era question.

      In 1859, Charles Darwin published his book On the Origin of Species, after that we had science class till the year of 1925.

      During 60 years of 1925-1986, Evolution class was banned in American schools. From 1986 till present year 2018, science class is allowed in school again.

      Mr. EJ Baldwin arrived in San Francisco in 1853. He bought Rancho Santa Anita in 1875, people starting moving into this area. At a time of open discrimination and racism in American society, Mr. Baldwin provided many jobs to Chinese, African-American and Native American workers. He told a reporter that "Chinese are the most reliable laborers I can get."[10] He made news when he hired African-Americans from North Carolina and paid for their train tickets to California. Source from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Baldwin, 5/8/2018. Mr. Baldwin passed away in 1909, when Japanese population reached the highest in this area.

      In 1920s, Racism was open and popular in Arcadia according to historian records, it lasted till 1980s.

      Since 1990 till present 2018, there is no open racism allowed in Arcadia.

      It is interesting when we look at these two different cases together, the timeline is overlapped to each other so closely, isn't it? This should answer your question about modern era.

      Did you watch President Trump Speaks at the National Day of Prayer in White House Rose Garden May 3, 2018? What do you think about it?

  17. That two-faced picture reminds me of Joe thank-goodness-he's-gone Mosca.
    How is he doing in Encinitas? Did he get elected yet?

    1. Mosca was appointed Deputy Mayor of Encinitas last year. Don't ask me how he got up there so fast.

      Per a December article in the Del Mar Times, "Mosca, a three-year Olivenhain resident, was appointed to the Encinitas City Council in January 2017, filling a seat that was left vacant when Blakespear was elected to the mayor's position. Previously, he had served on the Encinitas Parks & Recreation Commission and on the Sierra Madre City Council for four years from 2006 to 2011, including one year as mayor."

      Latest issue (never a dull moment with this guy)

  18. It really comes down to some Arcadia Asian residents not understanding some English terms or sayings. Case in point when Tom Beck said “we need qualified Asians to run for city council”. He’s then labeled a racist simply because some did not understand what he said. Yes, you do want qualified people on city council. Come on people, quit playing the race card because you don’t understand a particular saying.

    1. 7:38 PM: i didn't think he was racist in his language. but after I replaced "Asian" with "black" or "Caucasian". that sentence did make him sounded like a racist.

      Besides the serious Asian council member qualification issue that Tom created, Tom has many controversial items by which he has confused the Arcadian residents.

      Tom was endorsed by Arcadia luxury house developer Dexter owner Charles Huang and Arcadia famous designer Robert Tung, they all have been building McMansions in Arcadia for years.

      Tom's Caucasian neighbor told, everyone in that area lives in houses around 8000 ft size and most of people had second house in other cities or beach house in her own case because they were successful. She even told her house was newly built. Nothing wrong with successful people to have their McMansions built in Santa Anita Oaks HOA area in her mind.

      My questions are,

      1/ Bob lives in 4000 ft house in Santa Anita Oaks and Bob was not endorsed by any developer, why did April Verlato name calling Bob Bodozer in 2016 and Tom continued using the very same name calling method on top of his election campaign sign?

      2/ Why does Tom support HPO? Our finding was Tom needed Gary's endorsement and support to win the election. Gary was the person leading the HPO. Thinking about it, Tom who were supported by big developers supports HPO, now finally it makes sense.

      3/ Why did all of Tom's supporters claim, they hated big houses? Tom claimed McMansions developers represented outside special interests in his campaign mailer.

      It looks Tom's saying is from his own personal experience. My questions is, which city Tom cares about more then? How often does Tom live in Arcadia? What is his interest in Arcadia, outside or inside?

    3. Why did Sho Tay just quit as admin on the hate site Voice Of Arcadia?

      Delete
    4. I went in VOA and didn't find anything about it. Why don't you ask him directly?

      Delete
    5. Of course there is nothing on the VOA site. This has been a very bad day for them, and when have they ever had the honesty to tell the truth about anything?

      They are honest people and exactly like you and I, some times, we know everything, some times we get lost totally, some times we cry, and some times we enjoy every single moment. All of us are children of God, aren't we? Only thing we can do is to care about each other, pray for each other, wish every body a happy life.

      Have a great evening.

    7. God gave his children the gift of free will. Some have made the choice to tell lies and cry racism when they are caught. That does not make everyone equally honest.

  19. There goes Schneiderman. Could have gone down in history as perhaps the last bulwark against tyranny.

    Cuomo the Lesser, by giving the GOP de facto control of the NYS Leg with its authority to appoint Schneiderman's successor, will leverage the circumstances in favor of his White House ambitions, resulting in the torpedoing state charges, and thereby ceding to Chancellor Dennison the pardon end game.

    Democracy in the US may have seen the beginning of its end today.

  20. Bad news for Voice Of Arcadia. Sho Tay's name has been pulled from its list of admins. It looks like Sho no longer wishes to be associated with them.
