MY STOMACH HURTS FROM LAUGHING
I AM LITERALLY CRYING
The Real Mitt Romney.
it’s like a rap battle
“nah rommy you need to get your facts straight, you need to go back in time and tell yo daddy to get a castrate. i’m barry O and im sick on this mic device, bout to be the only nigga runnin the free world twice.”
“yo it’s Mitt on the mic and i’m feelin hella wild, i’m gonna fuck all you bitches and not let you abort the child. you want free healthcare? go to Canada bitch, and bring your women and minorities too cause i dont give a shiiiitttt.”
Bless the internet.
It must be nice to talk about POC lives as non POC, to be able to so “kindly correct” a POC when they get riled up about xenophobic rhetoric that will affect how a lot of Americans are going to view them.
Must be nice not being a perpetual Other. Must be nice to be able to debate this all theoretically instead of like actually living it.
Fuck your Ivy League East Asian Studies degree, you don’t know jack shit about the reality we live in and how we’re murdered in the streets because of rhetoric like Romney’s. remember Vincent Chin and Danny Chen, the thousands of railroad workers driven out of their shantytowns by white men with guns.
How dare you accuse me of yelling racism and acting defensive when for some it means life or death.
But by all means keep studying us and decrying China’s bad human rights policies, we’re just lab rats to you
Lol I responded to this bitch.
I’m going to respond to your last post in kind now. Because I’ve had a chance to think about it, and I have actually come to the conclusion that it was really fucking gross, condescending and pretentious, and I’m going to call you the fuck out on it.
It must be really nice for you, as a white person, to be able to see an angry person of color and to write them off as pointing fingers and calling names, when you have never had to suffer the effects of xenophobic dialogue and racism within this country. When you probably don’t even know who Vincent Chin or Danny Chen are and that they died because of ignorant assholes who didn’t bother to fact-check; they just took some politician’s words at face value and used it to kill innocent people.
It must be so fucking nice to study all of these things at a purely intellectual level, without thinking about how your generalizations about what goes on in a country as complicated as our own might POSSIBLY influence some ignorant people’s thoughts and attitudes about said country. More importantly so, about how they perceive other people who have NOTHING to do with said country who are living in THIS COUNTRY and have to suffer for it every day, who are constantly being told to GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM and fucking called RACIAL SLURS.
It must be nice for you to be able to ignore the API American community completely and only think about how Romney’s rhetoric applies to the Chinese government and not like, the millions of API people living here. Many of whom aren’t even Chinese, but, like Vincent Chin was, get mistaken for being a different nationality than they actually were and beaten to death anyway. Because we’re all interchangeable, am I right?
I’m only saying this to you because of your tone-policing, condescending post about how GOD FORBID I FUCKING CALL SOMEONE RACIST OR XENOPHOBIC BECAUSE THESE ISSUES IMPACT ME AS AN API PERSON EVERY SINGLE DAY. I almost got into a fucking PHYSICAL ALTERCATION with a catcaller on the street who had the fucking GALL to call me “Chinadoll”, then started almost getting VIOLENT BECAUSE HE THOUGHT HE HAD A RIGHT TO CALL ME SLURS. Like those people who thought they had the right to call Vincent Chin or Danny Chen slurs. The white men with guns who drove out the Chinese railroad workers.
And yet despite all that, you have the fucking nerve to sit there in your ivory tower, fanning yourself with your East Asian Studies degree, and tell ME, an API person, in a “teacherly tone”, that I BEGAN A PERSONAL ATTACK, when I was actually only pointing out that Romney’s rhetoric was hurting people. You then have the fucking nerve to tell me that I’M BEING JUST AS BAD AS ROMNEY. How fucking DARE you tell me that I’m being just as bad as the man who spits out this bullshit and contributes to oppression and further Othering of API Americans, who wants to make sure we know that we don’t belong here and we never will. How fucking dare you.
As a white person, you do NOT GET TO TELL A PERSON OF COLOR WHEN AND HOW AND WHERE THEY SHOULD BE OFFENDED.
take your fancy-ass degree and your tone policing and your condescension and fucking swallow it whole, because I am not fucking having it. Fuck you and have a nice fucking day. Don’t bother responding; I’m sure all you’re going to do is sit there and cry about how some angry Asian girl who has NO idea what she’s talking about has called out out for acting like a douchebag.
Sorry people with race privilege, you can’t whitewash a debate when racism is a living reality for many people.
Fuck white people who are like, “let’s take race out of this”. If I can’t erase racism from my life, you can’t erase it from our conversation.
That’s it, right?
we're screw-ups. I'm a screw-up and I plan to be a screw-up until my late 20s, maybe even my early 30s.
