Have you laughed today?

(h/t Angry Asian Man)

First... deal with this image.


Now...let's talk.

"Oh and you don't even try to talk to us"?

Lesson the first, kids: white racists want you to like them.  As much as they look down on you, they still really want you to like them.  They want your loyalty, your friendship, and your admiration, and they feel entitled to it regardless of how they treat you.  That's why they see nothing absolutely wrong or contradictory with 1) assuming that the default "American" is white, 2) criticizing people of another culture, AND 3) complaining about being ignored by those very same people.  Nope; nothing contradictory whatsoever to do this all in the same breath (in this case, the same marker).

Why the hell would the Hmong students want to talk to these people?  With people like these living on the same floor, it's no wonder the Hmong need "meetings".  I wouldn't surprised if such "meetings" involved an open bar, 'cause with dorm-mates like this girl here, liquid therapy is in order.

This bout of passive aggressive, whiny racism (Seriously?  A sign posted in the bathroom?) is very telling.  It is a very beautiful sign of the times.  White folks like this girl here need to get used to being ignored and dismissed by their peers of color because the old days are truly gone.

I raise my glass of pink champagne to these Hmong students and their boss attitudes.  This is some seriously "fuck you" behavior and it needs to be applauded.

By the way...is anyone else having flashbacks to Alexandra Wallace?

  2. over here in England, we have a sizable asian population at my uni too and white people are always complaining about how they stink up the halls with their food and only hang out with each other.
    I remember this one girl was like "ugh i hate when they speak chinese all the time. they could be talking shit and it's rude."
    and I was like "...why are you eavesdropping on other people's conversation, THAT'S rude..." Its so annoying because we have students all over Europe here and no one complains when its two guys speaking in French to each other or some people speaking German.
    this reminds me of how recently a group of students in Towson Uni in Maryland want to make a "white student union" because they feel the white students are discriminated against because everyone else has groups. They feel they're discriminated against and not represented at Towson University....and University that is about 70% white....

    1. IN ENGLAND:
      White people are weird, I am still surprised that they feel and say stuff like that. However I feel it is ignorance and lack of understanding most of the time. AND Africans complain about the food smell too (not in this way though)...haha, I know it's like this here. Difference is, we all hang out together....(Africans and Chinese).

      So what's Hmong ?

  3. Even though incidences of racism is not a surprise, Im like "OMG..." about this bulletin. I mean..the writer of this was just deliberate about it..Wow!

    Not too long ago, I was looking on another blog about racism with Psy. It so stupid how most of the White racists( and from what I seen, the lone Black kiss up on there, which sickened me) on the FB page saying that he had no right being on the American Music Awards, yet it's not a problem,as the blogger mentioned, for White non-American singers like Justin Bieber,or One Direction to be on the show(Oops! I forgot.Far as OD, I wonder do those racists know that one of the members of the group is Asian?)

    I just like how those fools just want to claim the US as theirs and want to tell people where to go. I wish that Native Americans could just take their country back and remind these people WHOSE land it really is.

    1. EXACTLY, "NATIVE" Americans are the real americans !
      I think it was because he was singing in a different language AND the fact he was not white. I am so surprised that there are still racist people in our new generation. I always expect it to be an older person thing.

  4. I have to say I am not surprised. Look at all the blogs and tweets from racists when Obama won again. How many of them said it was the end of a "traditional America" which is code for white majority. Now you have some guy from Korea all over the place in entertainment. They claim that latinos are taking all the jobs from Americans (i.e. white people). Add into the fact that pretty much EVERY minority voted in the majority for a black president their worst fears seem to be happening. They (whites) are no longer important! Its going to get worse trust me.

  5. Lol at the heart the girl draw at the end of her rant...seriously, what did she expect? Coming off as a polite and sweet person after all the shit she said? If you want to get along better with a group of people, writing a rant on a poster is NOT a solution. This is condescending, really rude and desperate. And I'm sure that this floor has other "problems" too...with white people for example.

    It's easy to criticize a group that doesn't acknowledge you when you don't make the effort to approach them to begin with (or make them comfortable)...I guess that's what happened somehow.

    Anyway...LOL at the poster. That's what I call "making a fool of yourself". She sounds like a spoiled little girl.

      Yeah...what was THAT about? Seriously? A heart? After all of that?

      Delete
    2. I think the heart's supposed to mean, "I'm totally not racist, though!".

    3. First I was thinking "wow, she was smart enough not to sign her name", but then I was thinking how easy it'd be to find the idiot over the age of 18 who still signs things with hearts...

  6. Hmongs are nomadic ethnic minority in the northeast and southeast asia. They are originally from the regional mountains of China, but most of the Hmong populations in the U.S.(mostly the West coast- California and Oregon) are from Vietnam and Thailand because of the Vietnam War. since The U.S. Military use the Hmongs as spys during the Vietnam war. The U.S. problem them that if things go bad the U.S. Military will evacuate the Hmong people to the States. Once the Vietnamense communist government found out about the Hmongs as Spys. Lets just they the Vietnamense government went on a killing spree. The reason I know this because I grew up in Yuba City California that has a big Hmong and Shiek population because about 20 miles away from a Air Force Base called Beale. Coincidence, I think not.
    P.S. Yuba City is a small agricultural town, which is 1 hour north of Sacramento.

    1. A discussion that lately surfaced was about Yellow Rain, a bioweapon that was used on the Hmong similar in the way Agent Orange was used on the Vietnamese. They were massacred by the communist forces. The public continues to ignore or outright discredit both, as though they are myths and not reality. The Highlander minority continues to battle for its own sovereignty in Asia, much like our First Nations here in the US or like Tibetans in China.

      They're people from the Highland Regions where the jungle mountains mostly protected them from colonization. Their culture was thus allowed to flourish (hear the jealousy in my voice <3).They are also referred to as the Miao in China, but this term is considered deprecating. Hmong is pronounced with a silent 'H'. I love to oogle their silversmithing (out of this f*ing world), their pleated skirts and indigo dyes, and watch the men's qeej dances. Not to mention that the Highlands are some of the most beautiful places in Asia, cloud valleys and terraced pondfields going up into the sky. It's killer.

      The Hmong Americans are refugees, like most of us SEAsian Americans and we face a lot of non-mainstream Asian American problems including poverty, alienation from education, gun and gang violence.

      Actress Brenda Song is Hmong. And there was that movie by Clint Eastwood where he got to play hero to a family of Hmong Americans. And there is a lovely community in Minneapolis.

    2. No Problem. I think the hmong have a very interesting culture, which is not apperiated by most. Since I moved from Yuba City to Hayward, Ca at Cal State East Bay to get my B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Asian Studies. I am amaze on how many people in CALIFORNIA, who don't know what Hmong is.O_0
      So sad another minority group who is not apperiated or aware of.

  8. There is a shirt with an expression I'm sure the Hmong students should express to the poster writer, "I'm not anti-social, I'm anti-stupid". That poster was completely dumb. The university probably caters to the majority of students which is over 90% white so how is it wrong for the Hmong students to want to band together and immerse in their culture. I'm also troubled by the poster's "American" statement since who is to say that the Hmong students AREN'T American? So speaking a language that isn't english is un-american or cooking food that isn't found in a fast food restaurant is somehow against the American norm? America has no national language or specific cuisine so no one can create a definition for what is or isn't American. But I feel that Mr. So said it best "Bish don't be made that no one likes you." <-Sounds about right to me.

  10. This is standard behavior for white girls in college dorms. They feel like only they are entitled to live there. I've lived through it, snide passive aggressive notes included.

  11. Lesson the first, kids: white racists want you to like them. As much as they look down on you, they still really want you to like them. They want your loyalty, your friendship, and your admiration, and they feel entitled to it regardless of how they treat you.

    This. I had a white roommate whocried when he boyfriend dropped her off. At this point I should mention that in a shared apartment she was the only white girl with three other black girls. We thought she was homesick so we threw her a party for her birthday, even though we didn't know her from Adam and introduced her to people to try and make her feel welcome. She quickly started showing her ass though. She complained to the RA constantly about us, for things she could have simply talked to us about, apparently that was beneath her.She actually called us "dirty b*****s" to our faces when we accidentally set off the smoke alarm while cooking, in the afternoon mind you, and interrupted her nap. She apologized(fake) for this.

    The final straw was when me and my roommate overheard her on the phone talking to her boyfriend saying, " You need to come pick me up because I'm not going to dance with a bunch of n*****." The school which has a small minority population was having a dance that she apparently did not want to go to. She did not know we were in the apartment as we were in another room and she came out and saw us,she quickly tried to say, " I meant wiggers."

    In the office with the RA, we decided that a new housing arrangement needed to be made for her. And the RA agreed, despite her white woman's tears and her denying that she said what we both heard her say.

    But the kicker here is, she had the nerve to try to give us a HUG as we were leaving the office. I looked her dead in the eye and I said, " B***h don't touch me. Just get your s*** and get the f*** out of the apartment. Today."

    She seriously thought she could use a the n-word and then hug it out.

  12. "Oh and you don't even try to talk to us"?

    I'm not aware of any rule which says that someone has to talk to you. But if the person(coward) who wrote this letter thought a conversation/communication was necessary why didn't she initiate that conversation herself?
