Asian-American Discusses Racism

Post by Bram »



I guess I'm sharing this because I want to be a person who treats everyone with a basic level of kindness and respect, which is not affected by how they appear.

And thought this was a good reminder.

First, respect to the man.

Second, this whole anti-Asian racism thing is something to behold. We all know who have been the perpetrators of recent, high-profile anti-Asian incidents, but since that doesn't fit the predominant narrative, it's become awkward and forced.

Third, and the guy gets it in his video, having grown up in a place that 75-80% Asian and Asian-Americans, they can be pretty damn racist too. That's the dirty secret: everyone is racist, and it's never going to stop.

Baffled? Dunno what your enigmatic f off is in reference to.

Fatty, I don’t think we’re forced to act racist, it’s just an easy path to go down.

Like if someone cuts you off in traffic — it is real easy to honk, cuss at them, maybe even it seems reasonable to follow them and wave a weapon at them.

You could also think “maybe they’re having a bad day” and go back to listening to music. That’s not the easier path, generally, but I think we’re all capable of being that person.

Heh, maybe I’ll just shut the f up tho and worry about my own behavior :)

Baffy is an Asian American so you have now been a victimized by one because of your white supremacy. The circle of life is complete.

No, we're kind of forced to. Humans have a natural in-group preference which is part of our evolved psychology. That's why all this "anti-racism" results in...surprise! *more racism*

I think you know what to do with that hippie shit.

That's always a good place to start.
