Have you guys seen this flag before?
I feel like a lot of people assume that this is a cool way to draw the Japanese flag or something, but it isn’t.

This flag is called the Rising Sun flag. And it seems to me that people aren’t too aware of the history behind this flag and why it should not be used.

This flag was used by the imperial Japanese army.
When Korea was under Japanese rule in the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s, my people were treated like animals.
My great grandmother was a lucky few that wasn’t robbed of her culture and language in her generation.
My great grandmother’s brother was a teacher, and Japanese men took him and rolled him in a hay carpet and beat him up. He was always sick and wobbled when he walked until the day he passed away.

These are the less scarier stories, because my mother’s family was one of the richer families.
Women were kidnapped and taken as sex-slaves for the army. They were raped and were tortured.
Children were beat to death by Japanese teachers.
My people were used in all sorts of experiments to fulfill curiosity.
I’m not gonna speak more about the terrible things because they were horrendous and inhumane. You can do some researches on your own.

I’m not much of an expert, but the Chinese also went through the similar things as we did.

But that flag was hung all around Korea during that time. This flag is a constant reminder of what my families had to go through.

This flag is no better than the Swastika.
This flag will forever be tied to the horror that my people had to go through.

It is so disgusting to see people justify this flag because it “was originally a symbol for good prosperity”.
Swastika was “originally a symbol of well-being”.

Does that give me the right to wear the flag around in every merchandise? and when a Jewish person comes up and tells me that it is offends them and explains the history, can I just say “It originally wasn’t the Nazi sign. It’s only cultural appreciation.”?

Absolutely not.

But when I looked up the Rising Sun Flag, it says that the use of the flag is controversial because Koreans and Taiwanese take offense to the flag, and it pretty much says that people were told not to bring it to Olympics for the sake of the butt-hurt Koreans and Chinese people.
As if we weren’t supposed to take offense to this flag.

Although I’m not an expert of everything related to this, I’ll do my best to answer if you have any questions.

Also, no, I don’t have any ill feelings toward Japan. (some of my family members do, because their parents and siblings were killed and/or was tortured)
Although I do want the government to acknowledge and apologize the fact that they did in fact torture my people, and teach what happened to their students.
I am not angry at the Japanese citizens.

The reason why I’m making this post is because this white anime-lover boy came to school with a shirt with this flag during our school’s color wars by grade, and he has been wearing the shirt every year.
Even after a lot of our Korean students asked nicely him to not wear the shirt again. Every. Year.
He manages to complain about the “so much shit I got” from wearing the flag.
I asked him later and he word for word said “Yeah, the Japanese raped the shit out of your women” he knew the history just as much as we did. He justified it with cultural appreciation.
I know that some people may own merchandise with this flag on without knowing what it means, or even sell it without knowing.
But please, it really hurts us when we see this flag justified, worn and drawn all around by all sorts of people.


So please, educate yourself, and others.
Spread the word.

Racism sucks and all. But the videos of people stealing Confederate flags also suck. Stealing lf private property shouldn't be made into a heroic deed. Offensive or not, private property is private property. I own a Confederate flag because I'm a huge Civil War history nerd. I'd hate for someone to steal it from me because they assume I'm racist.

Haha, why would you send this question on anon when you just said the same thing on that post, @libertyatheistandy ? 

Anyway, I don’t give a shit about your property rights when you use them to be a racist.

Kids Share Some F**ked Up Facts About The Confederate Flag

These kids are decrying the Confederate flag in the best way ever: by telling us all the horrible stuff it represents. In a video posted to YouTube Tuesday, a group of young boys and girls get together to express how fed up they are “with this whitewashing of America’s dark past.”

Watch the full video for all five f**ked up facts.

anonymous asked:

/watch?v=lwk1DogcPmU you were right about the "He wanted to show how much people would do for just 5 bucks" thing you said.

Of course I was right. I watched the videos and actually took the time to understand what the context was.

But now watch as people look at nothing but the end of the video where he jokes that the “secret Nazi salute” is a brofist, to then ignore everything else that was said, ignore the serious context behind it, to say that oh, well, actually, he just admitted that he was a Nazi and that all of his subscribers are Nazis.

Everything is an outrage. Everything is “problematic.” 

You know, I could take and twist absolutely anything to make it sound like a problem. I could very, very easily sound serious about something that isn’t a problem and doesn’t exist, use some emotive language, make it appear as though I’m sincere, and bam, just like that, I could manufacture outrage. It’s not difficult. You don’t need a whole ton of experience. You don’t have to be a journalist or an expert. All you need is to be sincere and reasonable about other issues, be genuine there, and then pick the right time to pretend to take a breath and share about how upset some fantasy issue makes you, how much it hurts, how damaging it is. Leave out a few key details, focus on your agenda, but make it sound factual and important.

People eat that up.

And it’s great, right? Because if someone else comes and says, “Hey, but you’re forgetting about this” or “But if you actually think about it, it’s not actually an issue because of X” then there will always be someone that is outraged by your lack of outrage. People are far too invested in enjoying the outrage. They love tearing other groups, other individuals, down. 

That’s what this site is. That’s what a huge part of the media is. And there are so, so many people that buy into it because they get to be outraged. Because, remember, being outraged means that you can claim to be outraged on a specific group’s behalf, your own group’s behalf, and if that ties into the current narratives about “marginalised groups,” then that outrage now equates into them being Good.

Very few, aside from people that don’t care about news or issues because they’re too concerned with their actual lives, care about truth or fairness or justice anymore. No. Those things don’t matter. Goodness isn’t about being a good person. Now, Goodness is about how angry you are. How enraged you are about the latest manufactured crisis.

You don’t think something is a problem at all? You’re a monster.

You think that something isn’t a big deal? You don’t really care.

You’re not happy with something, but you’re not angry? You’re refusing to understand what others are going through and have no real care or empathy for them.

You’re angry, but you think it’s wrong to call for violence? You’re busy defending the Evil, so you can’t really be angry, you’re just tone-policing and harming minorities.

You’re so enraged that you call for violence, and either support riots and burning or actually go out and do those things? You really do care and understand and support the poor minorities, you’re finally Good!

You see? 

We’ve managed to move from a time where we were slowly changing the law to protect the hated and the vulnerable. Society’s attitudes as a whole were slowly changing for the better, the way that things should happen. It was frustrating and upsetting that things couldn’t change all at once, but progress takes time and at least there was hope for a better future. And where have we suddenly jumped to? A time where we should still be on that path, getting better and better every day, but instead, it’s nothing but hate, outrage, manipulated feelings of hurt and a desperation to be seen as an Other to claim “oppression points” where we should all be going, “What we really want isn’t majority vs minority, but a whole bunch of different individuals that live together, who can celebrate their differences but still support other’s differences and, at the end of the day, work together so we’re one big, better world.”

We can’t acknowledge that, though. If we do, if people accept that things are better, not perfect, with changes that still need to be made, but better than it used to be, then they’d have to accept that outside of actual, horrible and specific instances, there’d be no need to be angry. But anger is all they feed on. It’s constant. Forever. 

I bring this up here because look at all the manufactured outrage over one joke that was in very poor taste, and then deliberate misrepresentation of other things, all to stir this controversy, when there are actual issues that deserve to be addressed.

Oh, Pewdiepie is antisemitic. Save the Jews from this neo-Nazi scumbag.

(Shh, don’t mention the antifa and anti-Trump individuals that unironically use swastika flags with no context aside from “protest.” Shh, don’t mention that a German court recently decided that firebombing a synagogue wasn’t antisemitic, but legitimate criticism of Israel. Shh, don’t mention how a British Labour supporter was given a peerage for deliberately whitewashing a report into antisemitism. Shh, don’t mention the antisemitic attitudes that are prevalent in Islamic communities throughout the world. Shh, don’t mention the abuse of Jewish students on college campuses from left-leaners under the guise of “anti-Zionism.” Shh, don’t mention actual examples of neo-Nazis and their specific antisemitic words and actions. Shh, don’t mention that antisemitic hate crimes are actually increasing and that Jews actually are worried about personal safety.)

We’ve got to protect Jewry everywhere from a Youtube star that made a very tasteless joke! We have to dismiss and hate a Youtuber that’s Jewish because he wasn’t offended by the outrage, and is Pewdiepie’s friend, so knew the context better than anyone!

Please, please, everyone, get angry, get outraged over this joke, because if you don’t, that means that you don’t care about Jews at all, you white supremacist, neo-Nazi-supporting antisemite!

It sickens me. All of it.

And, sure, I’ll say it, because why the fuck not.

As a Jew? I deserve better.

Welp, now I know why I see 4channers making peace signs and using the pride flag/swastika combo so much.

People like this are why we can’t have nice things.

Top 10 Facts Of The Day (March 24, 2017)

10. Volkswagen was sued by Czechoslovakian car maker Tatra before WWII because the original Beetle was so similar to the Tatra T97. After Germany invaded Czechoslovakia in 1938 the lawsuit was cancelled by the Nazis. 

9. When Paris fell to the Nazis in 1940, French soldiers cut the elevator cables to the Eiffel Tower. This meant that if Hitler wanted to hoist a swastika flag, they would have to climb hundreds of stairs to get to the top.

8. Carlsberg beer used to have a Swastika (as a symbol of purity) in its logo. They removed it in 1940 after the Nazi’s appropriated it.

7. When men don’t masturbate for 7 days their testosterone levels increase by 45.7%.

July 19 2015 - The KKK went to Columbia, South Carolina to protest the removal of the confederate flag in front of the statehouse. They were easily outnumbered 10 to 1 by counter-protesters, forcing the police, who were there in large numbers to protect the racists to cut their demonstration short by an hour. Some of the racists who found themselves without police protection were taught a lesson, and a large number of confederate flags were stolen and disposed of. [video]/[video]/[video]/[video]/[video]

Youtubes #morethanarefugee video is sweet and hopeful.
