(Thank you, dormeats!)

roll each piece into a ball and let rise for another 10 minutes

 

roll out each ball into a large disk 

don’t worry if it looks more like a pacman ghost. nobody will know ;)

put ~ 1-2 teaspoons of filling in the middle. i over-stuffed this one!

pleat and pinch making sure the seal is tight. check out those sick crimping skills!

place each bun on its own foil or parchment square. 

into the steamer! ….if the seal isn’t good, they open up in the steamer

i got the hang of it eventually! serve with soy sauce or plum sauce to balance out the doughy taste of the wrapper. here is the recipe i used for reference:

Things I learned in college:

  • If it has the words “dragon” and “sushi” in it, white people will buy it.
  • There actually is a dress code and it’s all plaid.
  • Everyone in the music department makes Skrillex remixes except for the classical music majors. They make orchestral arrangements.
  • Black professors make white girls cry.
  • If you’re darker than beige it is possible to get in trouble for carrying a nerf gun on campus.
  • Everyone knows that one dude name Raphael who named his Shiba Inu after a Digimon.
  • The owner of the hookah bar actually charges you more if you are his friend.
  • Only terrible people are friends with the owner of the hookah bar.

Name: Patsy Matsu Takemoto MinkDates: 1927-2002Why she rocks: Patsy Mink was an American politician in Hawaii, and served in the US House of Representatives for 12 terms. She was the first woman of color and the first Asian American woman elected into Congress. She was also the first Asian American to seek the presidential nomination for the Democratic Party in the 1972 election. She also authored the Title IX Amendment of the Higher Education Act, thus having it named after her: “The Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act”
Quote: “We have to build things that we want to see accomplished, in life and in our country, based on our own personal experiences… to make sure that others do not have to suffer the same discrimination.”Because of this woman… we have equal opportunities amendments for higher education, and a multi-cultural presence in politics for women and asian americans.

“I am not a racist but . . .”: mapping White college students’ racial ideology in the USA

newwavefeminism:

Abstract:

 Survey-based research on Whites’ racial attitudes in the USA has characterized their views as either ‘tolerant’ or ‘ambivalent’. We argue that surveys on racial attitudes have systematically underestimated the extent of prejudice in the White population. The legal and normative changes created by the civil rights movement of the 1960s brought a new racial ideology (‘color blind racism’), with new topics and a new form. These matters were examined by collecting survey and interview data from college students in three universities. The main findings were that White respondents appear to be more prejudiced in the interviews than in the survey, use a new race talk to avoid appearing ‘racist’, and that the themes and arguments that they mobilize are congruent with what other analysts have labeled as ‘laissez faire’ or ‘competitive’ racism

So this guy actually came and spoke in one of my classes this morning and got to expand on some of his findings. Interestingly enough, he surveyed college students who focus on social sciences… so they are the type of students who already understand societal structures, institutional oppression, how society works. They are more likely to understand and care about racial issues. But even under this highly specified sect of students, racist attitudes was pretty high. (Though, one could argue that among college educated students, unchecked privilege is a given.)

Its a great article and if you read anything just read the quotes from those interviewed.

For example, a response when a male was asked if he was ever attracted to black women:

… Um, so, to answer that question, no. Um, but I would not … I mean, I would not … I mean, I would not ever preclude, uh, a Black woman from being my girlfriend on the basis that she was Black. Ya know, I mean … ya know what I mean? If you’re looking from the standpoint of attraction, I mean, I think that, ya know … I think, ya know, I think, ya know, I think, ya know, all women are, I mean, all women have a sort of different type of beauty if you will. And I think that for Black women it’s somewhat different than White women. Um, but I don’t think it’s, ya know, I mean, it’s, it’s … it’s nothing that would ever stop me from like, uh … I mean, I don’t know, I mean, I don’t [know] if that’s … I mean, that’s just sort of been my impression. I mean, it’s not like I would ever say, “no, I’ll never have a Black girlfriend”, but it just seems to me like I’m not as attracted to Black women as I am to White women for whatever reason. It’s not about prejudice, it’s just sort of like, ya know, whatever. Just sort of the way … way … like, I see White women as compared to Black women, ya know?

Or this person, in response to questions on his views of Interracial Marriage:

 Uh … (sighs) I would say that I agree with that, I guess. I mean … I would say that I really don’t have much of a problem with it but when you, ya know, If I were to ask if I had a daughter or something like that, or even one of my sisters, um … were  to going to get married to a minority or a Black, I … I  would probably … it  would probably bother me a little bit just because of what you said … Like the children and how it would … might do to our family as it is. Um … so I mean, just being honest, I guess that’s the way I feel about that

Read & enjoy!

The Leadership Blog: “No Niggers Please” Sparks a Revolution at MSU

strugglingtobeheard:

theleadershipblog:

Hello! 

I am blogging you to inform you, if you have not been informed already, about the several racial incidents that have occurred on campus during this past week. 

1) On Wednesday of last week,  The phrase “No Niggers Please! :)” was written on the outside of a black girl’s dorm room door erase board. The girl, who was extremely in shock, was moved across campus within a hour by the Hall director. 

2) A few days later, a black doll was found in the Bio-medical Science Building hung by a homemade noose, made out of green Mardi Gras beads. 

Several other racial slurs and terms have been vandalized on walls in several residence halls during this week and according to students the faculty in the buildings wash the slurs away and refuse to do anything about it. 

A week after the first incident, today, the President of Michigan State University sent a campus wide email generally informing all students about the racial incidents that have been occurring. She then proceeds to say that she supports the first amendment right even though it may offend most people. The email showcased no compassion or remorse towards any of the students that were attacked. 

Tonight, the Black Student Alliance, held an Emergency Town Hall meeting entitled “Stop Racism”. Hundreds of students of all different races, though mainly black, came together to discuss the incidents that were going on campus, share testimonies and experiences with racism on campus, and lift their voices to hopefully spark a revolution; and yes a spark was created. 

The energy within the meeting was historic. I just want to share one quote with you by the opening speaker: 

“If action is not taken then we will shake this campus to its core with our voices.”

All Multi-Racial groups on campus are saying “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH” and I’m happy to say that a Revolution is approaching.

Wow, what a shitty president. And why did that girl have to move but no investigation as to who did it took place? What an unsturdy learning situation. My heart goes out to ya’ll for having to deal with that!! If you need support in the form of letters saying this is an outrage or anything along those lines, let the word by known!! Shake that campus if you have to.

Hate speech isn’t free speech. I bet the same university president wouldn’t be so quick to encourage first amendment free speech against them.

EL EM AY OH.: adamquinn:It really misses the big picture, isn’t even close to...

peecharrific:

adamquinn:

I don’t think white people should lead, I guess my point is that I didn’t see Occupy Wall Street as focusing on white issues so I didn’t ..

ugh can you shut the fuck up? your rebagels keep popping up on my dash. the reason you can’t see the problem is because you’re so focused on defending your skin color (which you say you don’t care about but that’s the only thing all up and through all of your.. whatever it is you’re doing. whatever you would call that) that you can’t step out of yourself for one second to see if other people might have a point.

simply put: people of color have a dog in this fight. it’s a big goddamn dog too. anybody who says “why are we worried about this?” “why can’t we just fight together?” “why do we have to worry about these issues?” “why can’t you (POC) understand that we’re all in this together?” “why can’t you (POC) understand we’re all having problems?” - anybody who says that shit doesn’t care about people of color. if you did, if you were in solidarity with us, if you understood the fight, you would understand the reason for and the reticence of many people of color to join in this OccupyWhatever movement wholeheartedly. notice i did not say all - because i’ve seen a few (very few) black and brown faces in those crowds.

the truth is, institutionalized racism is a BIG PART of our lives. it affects us daily in a real and tangible way. if you’ve shut down and stopped reading by now, or started skimming because you don’t want to talk about race, that’s because you don’t give a fuck.

and i don’t have a problem with you not giving a fuck. i have a problem with you and other ppl like you, who are afflicted by whiteness (no matter what their skin color), telling me that this is not a valid concern. you have no idea what you’re talking about. you didn’t read the original post or you wouldn’t have even been arguing your point. you responded half assed to a reblog you saw and decided you needed to educate PoC - when you have no idea how it works or what we have to deal with.

this is the reality of aware poc: you see the 13yo girl who was arrested and you are inspired. we see her and we might be inspired, but we also wonder why aiyana jones didn’t get coverage like that - and she was a 7 year old girl who was MURDERED by police. not zip tied and shuffled along for a few hours.

you see the wearethe99 posts and feel a connection with them because of the mounting debt and inability to provide for yourself. we see them and feel the same, but we also wonder why no one has addressed that people of color in america have been living like this for generations.

this is not an either/or situation, and it was not an either/or post. it is an acknowledgment/addition situation. it was an acknowledgment/addition post. PoC see and acknowledge the struggles all of america (and the world) is/are going through right now, man of us simply want to ADD to the discussion and ADD to the protests and ADD to the action plans that we have been going through this long before middle class white people ever considered what hardship would be like.

the post, which many people connected with, btw, was about coming to terms with the protests. it was about feeling alright with joining in. it was about the juxtaposition of our current and past experiences (us, our parents, our grands, our greats) with the majority of white america’s current experiences.

i truly don’t understand, because i am not white and could never pass for white, what is so hard for white people to understand about: WE ARE NOT ATTACKING YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL. this is not about you, adamquinn, who posts wiki links as source material. it’s not about the teacherbitch who wanted to talk to me about my socioeconomic status and shit. it’s not about the white ppl who came anon and called me a nigger. it’s not about any one individual.

it’s about a system that ignores us, no matter how bad it gets, and then expects us to support it again when things bad for the rest of the people. arizona, for example. white ppl in arizona (the majority of them) did not raise an eyebrow, a voice, or a finger in defense of people of color and minorities when jan brewer started her Colored Hunt. they didn’t. no debate. that’s concrete. but now there’s an Occupy and promise you, people of color are invited to that. we’re supposed to support and be solid and all that good shit. it’s about THIS system that treats us like cattle - good for the milk but when the cow is dried up, you kill that motherfucker and make stew.

tl;dr it’s not about you. and with every reply, you make it clear you don’t understand that. with every argumentative reply any person afflicted by whiteness makes, they make it clear they don’t understand that it is not about you. it’s not about me. it’s not about individuals - so there is no reason to take it personally as an individual.
