Even when I’m not overly raging, white folks will refuse to listen and continue to defend their misappropriation of our experiences.
I don’t need to know who you are to know that your username is still offensive as YOU ARE WHITE. You have no right to claim “honorary-asian” seeing as YOU AREN’T ASIAN. You will never experience what it’s like, as an Asian person, to live within the U.S. You will never have racial slurs thrown at you or your safety at risk because of racists shitheads. You will never have to deal with the exotification and fetishization Asian people face nor the desexualization. You will never experience the diaspora any Asian person lives through or the pain along with it. You will never go through any of the various struggles that Asian people bear through.
You will never experience the dehumanization Asian people experience.
While I’m fine with you being uncomfortable about people claiming “honorary” anything and if you want to claim that the Asian race has been through and goes through a lot, fine.
But you know what: white people face racism too. Just because we’re “white” doesn’t mean we’re not a race and that harsh words against us isn’t racism. In fact, the generalisation that all “white folks will refuse to listen and continue to defend their misappropriation of our experiences” in and of itself is racism.
And actually, there is just as much negativity out there toward white people as any other race. Its just that you live in America, you don’t see it. Or rather, you choose not to see it.
Here’s a fun article for you.
Racism can and is applied to all people.
So get off your damn racial high horse.
Lol, the “we have it just as bad as you do” argument. Nice touch too that I’m only “claiming” the struggles Asian folks endure.
All I really needed was a white person to tell me what racism was all about, my eyes have been opened.
Get the fuck out of here.
Let’s look at the numbers based on the article.
So there were 58 racially motivated murders between 1995 and 2004 in the UK, according to the article. 24 victims were white.
The article cited above is from around 2006. In 2001, 91% of the UK’s population is listed as white, and in 2011 about 85% was listed as white. Between 2001 and 2011, so I’ll guess that there were maybe around 45 million white people in the UK out of the maybe 51 million. All people of color, including Black English, Asian, and others (as listed by the census) probably come to about 7 million - about 13% or 14%.
So statistically speaking the likelihood of being murdered for being white in the UK is about .47 out of a million (0.000047%).
For being a person of color, it’s about 5 out of a million (0.000486).
Now I don’t know anything about the UK other than what the BBC fanatics keep streaming into my dashboard, but I’m just using the numbers listed on the UK’s census data.
And according to the data, you are over ten times more likely to be the victim of a racially motivated hate crime in the UK if you’re a person of color.
But yeah, let’s go on believing that white people are just as oppressed.
Maybe it’s because i’m half white, but I can never understand why people say that you can’t be racist against white people. Maybe somehow my pov is tainted by the whitey blood that flows through my veins. But since the general consensus on tumblr is that you can’t be racist, or discrimnate against white people… I guess i’ll have to degree. So from now on, if a person of color is treats a white person badly because of the color of their skin, I will no longer view them as racist. I’ll just view them as a huge douchey piece of shit.
TREAT EVERYONE NICELY. IS IT THAT HARD.
Also, to the orignal poster… Shit. You don’t know her life story. Maybe shes a white girl adopted or fostered by asian parents. Maybe she has an adopted younger sister who is asian. Maybe her sister married an asian guy and she is really close with her inlaws and they nicknamed her that. Maybe she’s a white girl that was born and raised in somewhere in Asia. You just don’t know. Fucking hell. This is the internet. You are just a reader on some random persons blog. You don’t know them, and you don’t know their life story. Maybe she has a legimate reason for making that her screenname. Maybe it’s just some kind of inside joke she has with her friends. My point is… you don’t know why she has the screenname. So why comment on it?
Wtf… really… why…
This is actually pretty accurate. There are alot of kpop fans like this as well. I was talking to this Chinese guy I met who said he was really into Kpop/Korea, and when I said I didn’t really listen to those idol singers that much, and mostly listen to other genres he said “Oh, I know Korean underground music too! Like Leessang, or CNblue” After that interesting statement, I found out through our conversation that all he knew about Korea was some ridiculous stereotypes, and really popular artists/dramas, but somehow he considered himself a connoisseur of all things Korean. He even deigned to correct me (a Korean person) on Korean manners. He finished the conversation by asking if he could call me 형. I said no. (I don’t need a 동생 like that lol.) He was a total, complete Koreaboo.
(There is nothing wrong with liking Korean music/culture. In fact I encourage it, and I think it’s cool. That said… you are not a Korean person. Heck, a good chunk of Korean people wouldn’t even consider a Halfie like me, who lived in Korea for a good chunk of my childhood a Korean person. So you will never be one. Please… don’t try to act like one. It’s ok to love Korean culture, but please, PLEASE don’t try to pretend you are Korean.)
((For those of you that don’t know Leessang is one of Koreas most wellknown hip-hop/r&b artists, and CNBlue is a really well known rock idol group. It would be kind of like saying “Oh I know American underground music! I know Maroon 5 and Jay-Z))
(((Finally about correcting me on Korean manners… it would have been one thing if he was right, but he was totally off base, and when I said that wasn’t it, he was like “Maybe it’s because you grew up in the US”)))
you could if you put some effort into it…. put down the twinkie, and step into the gym. also, there is something called makeup. use it. lots of it. you might want to visit a surgeons office too… the makeup will do alot, but that’s a lot of ugly to cover.
JK, but girls who say stuff like this piss me off. Honestly if I like you, you are hot as hell. It doesn’t matter what others say. If you like someone, and they don’t like you for the way you look, you could either
So yes. You will never turn me on… because your a self deprecating emo kid who makes me laugh… at them.
- A. Continue in your emo ways.
- B. Be an bitch, and call them a dick because they looked at your outside, instead of your inside, which BTW doesn’t seem that pretty either.
- C. Undergo massive a massive diet/makeover until you become a smoking hot babe, and then try again
- D. Grow up, and realize that people do take physical intrest in people. It shouldn’t be the most important thing, but it’s a reality in this world and most likely nothing will ever change it.
- E. Find a really hot blind guy. Preferrably deaf as well so he can’t hear you whine.
