I never really noticed it before, but now it’s really starting to bother me.
Being in a school with maybe 30% or so Asians, you’d think other people would get used to it and move past their judgements and prejudices.
In my old school, there was a total of four asians. I went through my yearbook and counted. And I never felt such vocal opposition or prejudice.
Key word is vocal. Sure, I may judge white people, but I never do it so vocally, or so maliciously. It’s one thing to label someone by their race—that white girl, that asian girl, sure, it’s an identifying characteristic.
But to change it all and lump them all together? Yes, because I’m Asian, I caused Pearl Harbor. Fuck, I don’t blame all the white people in the world for the Holocaust.
I was walking in the hallway today, and a girl and her two friends started clapping really loudly. You know, just clapping, and everyone joins in and it’s really cool etc etc… -eyeroll-. But then, she starts saying “whoooo Asian Night!” really sarcastically, and that pissed me off. Is there something wrong with Asian Night? Why, because it’s ASIAN Night? Why, feel free to have an American Night. No one is stopping you. It’s just a matter of you taking initiative.
So stop with the petty prejudices, the racism that I thought we grew out of in fifth grade. And you guys wonder why Asians are so cohesive…
