but what about us

I almost lost it

I said “excuse me” to a group of black kids and they move

I say “thank you”

Then as I walk by they yell Asian slurs and pretend to speak my language

They all laugh as I glare at them and yell back “you wanna say that again and see what happens?”

I’m so mad right now. What kind of disrespectful pieces of shit…

Like we are both minority’s and we have to look out for each other and help each other. Just in general everyone should be helping each other not being childish, disrespectful with a very older generation mind set and be calling people slurs and making fun of ones language.

Things like this make me so mad and makes me wonder why is it when an Asian slur is said it’s not a big deal. I get that black people have a huge history with slavery. (I am in no way saying it’s ok to say any slurs but it just seems like when Asian slurs are used no one cares). But my people have suffered too.

We never learn any of that in history class. I asked my history teacher in 8th grade what were my people doing during slavery or during the wars. When did my people come over to the US and what did they do to better the US and she couldn’t answer me. All she could tell me was that Chinese people came to build railroads. This was in my World History class. But we basically were only taught about the US

Why is that? Why are Asian people just set aside like that? Why does no one care when someone yells an Asian slur and ridicules me, and my parents.

My parents don’t know enough English to defend themselves. Why is it that Asian people are treated like shit and no one cares. In my experiences no one has every stood up for me, my family or my Asian friends. I have been the one to glare or to say something back. It took my a while to gain the courage to do so and it still shakes me and there’s still fear when I do stand up for myself.

I’m not trying to say Asian people are above any other race, that’s not it. I’m asking why when someone says an Asian slur no one comes to our rescue. When my sisters and I always call people out for calling other people of other races slurs….

They just laughed. They knew it was wrong but they said it anyways. None of them would even look me in the eye after that. They all looked down in their group and laughed.

My other Asian friend with me just ignored them. It bothered me that it didn’t bother her. She’s so passive and sweet and didn’t want to cause trouble. She was so use to it that she just ignored them, but I can’t. I can’t ignore them, I need them to know it’s not okay.

And to be clear I would act the same to ANYONE of ANY RACE that said a racial slur to me. There have been plenty of times when white and poc have said Asian slurs to me. This case just happens to be a group of black kids. Which makes me even more upset. Because we as minority’s should look out for each other.

I get that asian people can also be racist towards all races. But what have I ever done to them? I have never said any racial slurs towards them. I have never even said anything mean to them.

I’m so upset right now. I’m so shaken. From feeling angry, sad, powerless, scared. In 2017 and we still pulling this bullshit…

me: *have very important finals coming up, trying to study* “Ok, now that im FINALLY over mark’s video, i can absolutely, fully concentrate-

Jack: Anti wasn’t referring to Dark in the Pax intro, he was referring to Jack

me: 

  • Me: sees queen Elizabeth is trending
  • Me: hasn't had an emergency news alert from the BBC
  • Me: is confused

anyone else who thinks this is fucking terrifying? he’s straight up telling everyone to blame the judge and the entire court system for any future terrorist attack. this isn’t just mr. pissboy throwing a tantrum, it’s worse than that. this is preparing the groundwork, so that when a terrorist attack happens, trump can blame the court system and justify weakening it to gain more power. it’s the fucking Reichstag fire all over again

a concept: Victor usually wakes up first in the mornings. So when Yuuri wakes to find Victor cuddled against him, breathing slowly and steadily, it’s a pleasant surprise. He brushes his fingers through Victor’s hair and Victor instinctively moves closer to him, gravitating towards Yuuri’s touch whether conscious or unconscious.

They have to leave soon, so regretfully Yuuri whispers to him in Japanese, trying to wake him. Victor hums, still asleep, and tangles a leg in between both of Yuuri’s. Yuuri kisses his forehead and his chest aches with unconditional love that could reverse the turn of the Earth, that could part the ocean, that could put out the embers of the sun. Five more minutes won’t hurt anyone.

A note from the Indivisible Team
A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing. We are going to lose cabinet votes for terrible nominees. We are going to lose bills that are offensive and appalling. But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen. 


It won’t happen because of next week’s call to action. It’ll happen over months, where you keep showing up, regularly. Then, we are going to start winning. It’ll sneak up on us. We won’t understand why we are winning. But it starts with losing in a particular way- where we raise our voices and call it out when we aren’t listened to, where we get close but not quite there.

The first 100 days of a President’s term are the honeymoon period, the moment when he’s most likely to get his agenda enacted. Trump is spending his first 100 days mired in controversy, scandal, and backbiting - and that’s because you haven’t for a moment let anyone in Washington forget just how unpopular he is.

Every time we change the narrative, every time we delay, every time there’s a newspaper story about a member of Congress avoiding his or her constituents, that’s a win. And it matters.

You have already made history. You’ve delayed the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks longer than any time in recent history. You stopped the gutting on the congressional ethics office. You’ve made Republicans so nervous about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that it’s been pushed further and further down the road. You caused an uproar of historic proportions over Trump’s Muslim ban and saved lives and reunited families in the process. You’ve inspired people who have never before taken action to make their voices heard and learn how to do things like check how their members of Congress voted and call them out for it.

We’ll never even know about some of the victories - because those will be the fights that this Administration considered starting and then realized it couldn’t win.

We’re in this together. Every visit. Every call. Every loss. Every win. That’s just what friends do. #StandIndivisible

In solidarity,

The Indivisible Team
