This is a perfect set.
And now I’m just imagning poor Kaek vowing to never visit Oklahoma City because of their over abundance of Nice Guys
Asian/Black relations is a conversation that pops in Philly media every so often and no one asks the right questions
There was this huge rash black kids just kicking the shit out of asian immigrant kids at southeast philly high the last few years
And it took the media so long to get to the bottom of things
These black kids didn’t hate these kids because they were Asian (as it was framed originally)
They were mad because a lot of these were straight up NEW to America, only here for a few years
And they were getting treated better in the classroom than them by white teachers
Their weaknesses (poor English for most of them) weren’t being written off as symptomatic of them as Asian people, but merely a minor bump in their learning
And black kids were not getting that same courtesy
So yeah that made them fucking angry.
When Asian folk are pigeonholed as “model minorities”, that’s white supremacy. When black folk attack Asian folk as “model minorities”, that too is white supremacy. When the media does not acknowledge that, again, white supremacy rears its ugly head.
On a related note, with the help of Asian Americans United (AAU), BPSOS-Delaware Valley, Victim/Witness Services of South Philadelphia, and the Asian Student Association of Philadelphia, a lot of the kids from that incident a few years ago put together an exhibit called ‘We Cannot Keep Silent’ that’s worth checkin’ out. It’s open through March 2013 at least.
More POC solidarity, less participation in our collective oppression. Onward to liberation.
When you find a rare item, but it isn’t for your class/level or is weaker than your equipped gear.
I find it strange you think we give a shit
I look to the left and see diversity in race and ethnicity… I look to the right and see white white white white white white white white white white
I find it strange that you see races. I don’t see that at all. I just see people - Americans. On the left they are happy, and on the right they are sad. But, all just people.
only white people never see race, thinking it keeps them from being racist when it really makes them racist as fuck.
A source on that icky colorblindness = racism thing, for becausemagichappens.
lol this is exactly what my sister and I were saying when we were watching TV last night
President Obama responds to rape statement (below) from Senate candidate Richard Mourdock:
“I struggled with it myself for a long time but I came to realize, life is a gift from god and even if life begins in the horrible situation of rape it is something god intended to happen.”
oops I’ve become Raven and I’m so not sorry
