i’m sick of the kumbaya bullshit
i get that answering hate with hate is probably bad
and i get that shit like this should definitely lead to greater discussions about WHY shit like this still continues to happen and what we can do to change it
BUT i think it’s also important to consider how far just asking someone to think about what they’ve done will get
that’s a slap on the wrist for doing something so hateful towards a group of people and that’s just not right
people need a wake up call and if you’re big enough to post a video mocking a whole race with age old stereotypes, be big enough to deal with it when those you mocked come back at you. don’t be surprised when they don’t take it lying down and refuse to be polite to someone who so openly made fun of them and continues to defend it as comedy
i’m also sick of these asians/asian americans making their way into these conversations with “LOL I THINK HE’S HILARIOUS Y’ALL ARE TOO SENSITIVE” no you are not a ~special snowflake~ bc you find him funny, you are derailing the conversation. if you’re not hurt by it, that’s fine. whatever, that’s all you but don’t go ahead and try to invalidate the people who ARE hurt by it.
the amount of not only white students, but other PoC, especially Asian Americans, coming to the defense of the fraternity is so troubling. even some of the people who are condemning their actions add in how some students who are angry over this whole thing are “overreacting” and are “butthurt”. just fucking stop it. if you’re not with us, then you’re against us, and for that you can take a fucking seat and shut up.
fuck you for belittling and mocking my people, then having the audacity to tell us to calm down when we speak out against your racist bullshit.
why does this keep happening at Duke? I know that the entire school is not like this, but when I see things like this, I just don’t know what to feel anymore. It disturbs me that people can dress up like this at night and sit in a class with Asian people during the day. Am I supposed to be okay with seeing some white girl wearing a Vietnamese hat & holding up a V-sign? (history lesson: that V is for Vietnam. came from the protest against Vietnam war)
I just heard about this today. SPREAD THE WORD! This is the kind of fuckery that needs to be dealt with. I spoke with my friend who goes to Duke and who is trying to push DSG into taking action.
SHARE SHARE SHARE, FRIENDS!
part of what i hate about Hulu is that these fucking ads for The Tracy Ullman show keep popping up and in a 30 second commercial she does both blackface and brownface
why is this ok, hulu
To protect the hood and it’s reputation
we unite all people but we ain’t Caucasian
to denounce the evil of truth and love for KFC
Team Ratchet blast off at the speed of light
Surrender now or NIQQUA I WILL CUT YOU.
WE AIN’T GOT NO CAT WE DON’T WANT TO FEED IT AND DAT SHIT.
Your ignorance kind of astounds me.
i’m ashamed that i go to the same university as the person who wrote that fuckery
It’s not ok but the reason it CAN be separated on one hand is because Asians are largely ignorant to the maliciousness of how Whites do it, with the same background mentality and history of actually LYNCHING black people. So if you look at specifics it IS different. HOWEVER it does perpetuate negative connotations so it shouldnt continue.
Also, black people seem to be good at defending themselves. Maybe some of you Asians should worry less for their cause and focus on your own racism you recieve as Asians? Like how come none of you are addressing the blatant racism from blacks towards Asians? No one talking about Rihanna and her little rice cracker joke towards Karruche Tran? Or Lauryn Hill’s lyrics talking trash about Asians?That show Greys Anatomy watched by so many Asians that have an Asian chick working in a hospital in a lower position than all these higher upper black people fking a black boyfriend as he talks down to her patronizingly as if shes stupid half the time?(show written by a black person). The movie Crash where black people basically trample over Asians? How about some of you worry less about blackface here and start focusing on the racism Asians recieve. thanks.
^this is an excellent example of trying to turn PoC against each other.
if you think none of us call out shit that hurts our communities no matter who it comes from, you’re wrong. but just because we have our own stuff to deal with doesn’t mean we can’t come to the defense of other PoC when something hurts them, especially when it’s coming from our own people. i’d want fellow PoC to come to my defense when people are racist towards Asians, so i’m gonna do the same to them and i don’t understand why you think we shouldn’t.
what the fuck kind of person would i be to rage when someone does/says something racist about Asian people, but i don’t care when someone does/says something racist about Black people, or Latin@s, or Native Americans? what kind of person would i be if in response to anti-Blackness in Asia (and in the U.S. too), i responded with “oh yeah!?!? but what about what Black people have said about MY people??”, completely derailing the conversation and basically saying that they have it coming? i guess i’d probably be you.
also, i see you renamed your (seemingly brand new) blog about Black people being racist against Asians “watermelons & fried chicken”. YES, PLEASE KEEP FIGHTING RACISM AGAINST ASIANS WITH STEREOTYPES ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE. THAT ISN’T PERPETUATING ANTI-BLACKNESS AMONG ASIANS AT ALL.
But Asians are doing it for different reasons than whites, whites created black face out of hate and to inflict PAIN onto Black Americans, as whites created yellow face to insult Asians, both are examples of hate. Are Asians doing it for that reason?
Yeah Asians are doing blackface because they think it’s funny. We should totes let them off the hook for doing something extremely hateful, ignorant and anti-Black because intent is everything to you apologists.
If you don’t see why blackface is problematic regardless of who does it, you need to fuck off right now.
there’s no way any of the fuckery above ISN’T racist. Black face, yellow face, etc. were all obviously made by White people out of hatred for PoC, but is it somehow not hateful when Asians do it just because we’re PoC too? nope. Blackface is racist and disgusting, no matter what. the people in the images above should be ashamed of themselves. shit, i’m ashamed for them.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
other girl is @alainajeane on instagram
really grossed out and disappointed that one of my ex-favorite youtube personalities, glowpinkstah, is too dumb to realize how calling a black woman a gorilla is extremely racist and problematic.
she’s already hopped up on white cock though so i…
:| i’m disappointed too. it’s really ridiculous how so many POC think they’re exempt from being racist just because they’re POC. growing up in a diverse neighborhood doesn’t mean you’re somehow incapable of being racist/saying racist/problematic things. this summer, i dealt with a fellow Asian American girl who could not get it through her damn mind when people tried telling her why “jungle fever” is not ok, and scoffed accusations of racism because she “grew up in the projects” or some shit and because she’s dated a guy from every race so she caaaaan’t be racist.
i don’t see how it’s a joke when it’s at the expense of black women. anti-blackness is not something to laugh about. fuck that.
she’s posted some slut-shamey things before so i don’t know why it took me this long to unfollow her.
