dumb-asian

6

Have we ever discussed the fact that 2001 - 2012 Disney channel’s shows all had strong female leads, with the exception of Zack and Cody but they had a black man in charge, a smart poor white blonde girl and a dumb rich Asian so still beautifully diverse.

Disney was 100% female empowerment and showed diversity. Who did they employ to create the shit they have today?

Fan Bing Bing absolutely killing it and looking like an immaculate goddess at the Met Gala, meanwhile nearly everyone else entirely missed the theme memo.

MTV Decoded | Do These Celebs Look Alike?

We all know, that some celebs look eerily alike. But some people regularly confuse celebs of color who don’t look the same at all. And it’s not just the celebs! Lots of people say dumb things like “All Asians Look the Same” or “All Black People Look the Same.” And this is because of scientifically documented effect called Own-Race Bias. What is it? Watch the episode to find out!!!

(also a part asian follower) dumb question but i thought keith was confirmed asian? like isn't his last name also kogane (i also remember s/t abt him being korean?)? or is that just a widespread headcanon

it’s not dumb. it’s a widespread headcanon. he is not confirmed asian, but his voice actor, steven yeun, is south korean. kogane was his last name in golion (80′s voltron, where keith was half japanese and half chinese, i think) but many things have changed in this new show (pidge’s name and gender, lance/hunk/allura’s race, keith’s entire fuckin personality) so kogane (and mcclain and garret) are placeholders till we get confirmed last names (if we ever do)

dude did u even R E A D kosme's callouts she's done some bad shit

This is the only one I found: https://kosmecallout.tumblr.com/post/155030521417/callout-for-kosme and the link on it to another callout doesn’t work (it just sends me to an ad, idk if it’s a problem on my end or with the link).

…and the first thing on there is a Snow filter being called yellowface. I use those filters, they’re not yellowface, they just make your eyes look bigger and your face look smaller. They’re just cute.

Okay, here’s the thing, the problem with blackface is that it’s got a cultural history of being used to insult and mock black people via caricature, so when someone paints their face black or brown in that style and for the sole purpose of being a black caricature it’s bad, but when someone paints their face black because of a separate cultural practice (ie Morris dancers here paint their faces because the miners who used to dance painted their faces black with coal, to help people focus on the bright colours and movement of the dance rather than individual people or faces) or paints themselves for a cosplay (like the person who cosplayed Garnet) it’s an entirely different scenario and it’s not blackface, and when someone tans or uses fake tan it’s definitely not blackface. It’s also not blackface to wear clothing or makeup that is popular among black people, and so wearing clothing or makeup that is popular among Asian people is not yellowface… and using a face morphing feature on a popular app definitely isn’t.

Before I go on, I just want to say that it doesn’t matter what this girl has done - there is absolutely no excuse to stalk and harass someone irl.

Moving on with the callout post.

Oh it has links explaining why Snow is yellowface! Let’s see…

1. It’s kawaii and an Asian person says so.

2. It’s “imitating” people who are striving for features they don’t have.

3. Another girl did the same makeup with the goal of looking like an Asian.

So, for one, kawaii fashion is a fashion, it’s not poorly imitating an Asian person’s skin for the purpose of mockery like blackface. Cultures and fashions are shared amongst people who enjoy them, that’s life. For the second one… like… neither the Asian people doing the makeup nor the white people have those features or necessarily appeal to the beauty norms without the makeup, plus individuals doing it on both sides do it for far more reasons than to “imitate features” like that they simply like the fashion. I mean, your argument is “society tells people to look like this so we try to look like this but you’re not allowed to try to look like this”??? And for the third, first off, they’re imitating a fashion style, a makeup style, not parodying a person’s skin colour and race; secondly if you think calling an Asian fashion trend that was inspired by English fashion “yellowface” then you’re dumbing Asian people and cultures down to a fashion that originated in western culture and saying that wearing that fashion is a parody of Asian people, which is bollocks. The girl who did the Korean makeup tutorial on YouTube (a different girl to the one the callout is even for) is clearly a YouTube makeup artist showing off her makeup abilities. Sure, the YouTuber is dressing up as an Asian and some people might take offense to that and I can kinda understand, but it’s not the same as blackface - blackface doesn’t even involve trying to look like an actual black person for one thing; they smear on black or brown facepaint and giant red lips, it’s a mockery, an insult. Calling it “yellowface” is undermining what blackface actually is, just as calling things that aren’t blackface “blackface” is. (PLUS none of that actually addressed the Snow filter, it’s all about makeup and fashion.)

Back to the callout.

She insulted a Mexican one time (no context for that so no idea why she said it - everyone uses insults that they later regret while in heated arguments or when annoyed at individuals, I have no context for whether she said it because she actually hates Mexicans or whether it was just one individual that she insulted, but in the context of the callout it’s being used to make her look racist when it could easily be a spat between two people that she went too far in, so I’m reserving judgement on that). She also sassed back to anons and people going after her, oh the audacity.

Whether she apologized to this Mexican person is apparently up for debate, but all of the screenshots the callout post claims to have are showing up as URL not found. So I’m reserving judgement on that one too.

The IDing outside of her race thing confuses me - are we talking kintypes or Dolezal? I’d like some more context on that. What Dolezal and people like her do is insert themselves into minority support groups and advocacy things under false pretenses, appropriate transgender language and thus imply that there’s a “white brain” and “black brain” which simply isn’t true (and has gross race realism vibes), and they don’t appreciate the culture or share it pleasantly but instead claim to be something that they’re not in order to feign what would be seen in their ideology as a “legitimate claim” to that culture - if that’s what she’s doing I’ll complain about that, but if she just has a kintype or something that’s Asian then that’s not a problem, it’s not the same situation. Again, this fucking vague ass callout is making it hard to actually judge the situation.

As for the last thing, yeah, she fucked up on that one; telling people to slit their wrists and die is not cool. One question though: why does this callout once again claim something without providing links to the majority of the claim… it says that she’s talking about one specific group, mixed race people, but doesn’t provide proof that that’s actually what she was using “race faker” to mean? I mean, this callout post needs to provide proof of that because that sentence, telling anyone to die, is bad enough, but if she genuinely does mean mixed race people then you can report that as hate speech.

…notice how I said “report that as hate speech” not “go harass her and then stalk and bully her irl at a convention”. Vigilante mob justice isn’t the solution to this or anything.

Japanese Percy warms my cold heart <3 

Kris/You- Anon Request

This was a little difficult to write, because I couldn’t see a way to make it completely 100% happy at the end. It’s a little angsty. My bad. 

Pairing: Kris/You, Yesung(SuJu)/You

Scenario: Kris is your best friend. And best friends who love their best friends are just asking for disappointment. 

You wouldn’t put yourself through this with just any one. If Han or Jongdae had maybe ever drunkenly confessed to you and you’d turned them down, laughed it off as an inebriated ramble, you would still never—ever—put them through this. But it’s Kris. And you can’t ever seem to say no to Kris no matter how much you want to. No matter how much it feels like you’re stabbing yourself and twisting the knife with a smile on your face.

Besides, Han is pretty fucking gay and Jongdae is too obsessed with himself to spare looks at anyone. So nothing about this scenario makes sense.

A bunch of random girls came up to me at lunch and started saying racist things things like "where are your eyes dumb Asian" and "are all asians as ugly as you?" She even had the audacity to tell me to go back to my country and started insulting my parents my friends and even my love for dancing 😞

???????????????? okay honestly wtf is wrong with her like how low is her own self esteem to try and bash someone else when they’ve done nothing wrong… lmfao don’t worry about them em, they’re just insecure and honestly it makes them look so bad. just know that you’re more talented than you think, your eyes are gorgeous regardless of size (i mean, whose eyes aren’t gorgeous??), and LMAO “DUMB ASIAN” OKAY ALRIGHT whatever lets her sleep at night :’D also your parents so freaking amazing because they did what many adults can’t do and they risked their livelihoods for their child’s well being. 

so be proud of yourself and your parents and don’t let her words affect you because that’s exactly what she’s trying to do. instead, hold your head high and show her that she’s simply too insignificant to you for her words to hurt! that’s the best way to get rid of a bully (along with telling a teacher or something)

Just saw this…and am a little bothered by it…


“never ask white people what their ethnicity is unless you wanna hear a list of every european country and meaningless fractions”


Yep. I will respond that way. I will tell you that I am mainly Celtic with a touch of French, Dutch, German and Native American thrown in (Plus…like most Celts, I have a bit of Roman DNA from the occupation of the British Isles.) 


If you just wanted me to say “white”, why would you ask? It is pretty obvious. Pale skin, hazel eyes, dark brown hair…Yep. Whitey McWhiterson. Any whiter and you could see my internal organs.


I do know my family history and like to celebrate the individual cultures and regional ethnic features that I am made up of. If you ask what my ethnic background is, you are asking about the cultures that formed me into what I am.

 
If I were to ask a person with roots in Asia the same question and they said “Chinese on my Moms side and Filipino on my Dads” , should I correct them and say…“That’s dumb. You are just Asian.”

No…I would actually be interested because that is why I asked the question.

Just because there are physical similarities between people in the same general geographical region does not mean the culture is the same across the board. If you are asking what a persons ethnicity is…This is the exact information you just asked for. A list of where their ancestors came from.

Not-

Dude 1:“Hey man…What ethnicity are you?”

Dude 2:“Um…White.”

Dude 1: “Thought so. Cool. I know so much more about you now.”

End conversation. 

What would be the point of that?

Have you tried going to teachers and parents? Fuck, even going to the police and saying you’re getting verbally assaulted. Like, I’m pretty sure that will get her the fucking notion that *coughcough* bullying is not fucking acceptable.

It’s so ironic, too, that we’re currently going through a non-bullying week. What the fucc?
