anti-asian racism is when you force diaspora asian people living in the USA to call themselves american, tell us we aren’t really our ethnicity, and either say or imply that we’re less legit than nationals in our countries/regions.
and yet… you didn’t come crawling out of the woodwork to say “you’re AMERICAN sweetie :)” when people were constantly pressuring me to speak my language for them like some kind of circus animal trick.
when white people stared at me and my family at a restaurant cuz we were the only asian people in the place, your cries of “you’re not REALLY asian!!!1!” were nowhere to be heard.
when my language was literally called a noise, you were strangely silent about how i’m “AMERICAN chinese, not REAL chinese.”
the only time you ever bring up how “not really asian” we are is when we wanna define our own ethnic identities a certain way, or when we’re talking about forms of racism that hurt us as diaspora asian people… funny how THAT works, isn’t it? just admit you hate diaspora asian people already – your ugly intentions are transparent as hell and you’re not fooling anyone.
