As a fellow Asian, I am asking you to shut the fuck up and shut down your shitty, anti-black blog. You are not helping end anti-Asian racism by attacking black people. If you actually care about ending anti-Asian racism, you have to go to the source: white supremacy. Attack that.
As for the LA riots. Shit. That happened in 1992—were you even alive back then? I am older than most Tumblr users and I was in early grade school when that happened.
Look, shithead, it’s racist and ignorant to blame black people for what happened to the Korean community back then. Why not blame the white establishment for failing to protect those businesses? Why not blame LA police for being racist pigs who had been terrorizing the black and minority communities in LA for decades? Why not blame white Americans for doing their best through redlining, discriminatory hiring practices, etc. to keep African Americans an impoverished and oppressed class? Your anti-black racism is preventing you from seeing the bigger picture.
People like 2547567 are so fucking embarrassing. They don’t seem to realize or care that Asian American identity politics is inspired by/modeled on/lifted from African American scholarship and activism (same goes for most other ethnic groups in the U.S.) They’re the wellspring of all anti-racist movements in this country. If you call yourself an anti-racist activist and also shit on black people, you’re nothing but a bigoted hypocrite.
I wish there were some kind of formal repudiation ceremony I could do in cases like these…”2547567, I rebuke thee!”
lol? maybe YOUR ” Asian American identity politics is inspired by/modeled on/lifted from African American scholarship and activism” but mine are drawn from my OWN FILIPINO PEOPLE AND THEIR OWN MOVEMENTS WOW. So maybe you feel indebted to some black power movement but as black people have said THEY CARE FOR THEIR OWN CAUSE, NOT OTHER POC so ASIANS SHOULD ALSO DO THE SAME, HOW IS THAT ANTI-BLACK?
and when is calling our blacks on their anti-Asian attitudes shitting on black people? Learn to differentiate?
” it’s racist and ignorant to blame black people for what happened to the Korean community back then. Why not blame the white establishment for failing to protect those businesses? “
uhhhh I BLAME THEM BECAUSE THEY’RE THE ONES THAT DID IT LOL
MAYBE WE SHOULDNT BLAME CRIMINALS FOR THEIR CRIMES BUT BLAME AND LOCK UP THEIR PARENTS FOR RAISING THEM WRONG ALSO?Wow you sure do excuse black people a lot for any wrongdoings lol
This is my last post on this subject because it’s clear you’re not only racist and deeply misguided, but probably around 14 years old.
1. How is it looking after your own to attack an entire race of people who haven’t done a goddamned thing to you? Your original post was bullshit and many people have pointed out why.
2. I’m certainly not excusing anti-Asian racism among black people or anyone. But attacking it in the way you did was not only itself racist, but is futile. Incidents of racism by POC against other POC in this country are just symptoms of the actual problem, which is white supremacy. You can’t divorce criticism of anti-Asian racism by other POC from the context in which that racism flourishes. I mean, technically you can, but the end result is going to be incoherent garbage.
3. You’re not Korean but you decided it was OK to appropriate the suffering of Korean Americans in order to fuel your anti-black racism. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that this is not about fighting racism for you, but engaging in anti-black bigotry. Only racists go digging around for fuel like that.
4. What’s funny about your anti-black ranting is that you’re ignoring colorism and racism against Filipinos by other Asians. Including the ones whose recent history you’re trying to use to fuel anti-black racism. Do you not remember that, as a Filipino, other Asians have historically looked down on you? Have you missed the fact that how non-Filipino Asians treat Filipinos bears more than a passing resemblance to how whites treat blacks in this country? If your anti-racism were really modeled after Filipino activism, then you’d be fully aware of all of that.
I rebuke and repudiate your ass.
