White liberals are usually quite racist, despite oftentimes "meaning well".

English is not my first language, so it might be my fault. Just wanted to know what you mean exactly because at first glance it seemed to me you supported what she said(Colbert being racist against asians).

Ah, understand your question now.

Being racist and not being hated for it is liberal privilege.

I just saw a tweet by a guy who described himself not as male but male-identified.

It's not just white liberals who are racist. Just about all liberals are.

Most conservatives are too, but there aren't many non-white conservatives.

Hell, just about everyone is racist.

Btw, you converse very well in English. Wish I was as fluent as you are in a second language.

Does she know that we fatophobe chauvinists also make fun of fat men?

Thanks for the Colbert/Suey precis; I think I understand it. Here are my reactions, if anyone cares.

- Fuck Colbert. His entire show is based on building strawmen. I know satire is satire, but good satire should be in the service of something besides preaching to the converted in a way that dumbs down conversation and fosters animosity and distrust. Seriously, fuck him.
- Fuck Suey, what a dumb bint. HOWEVER,
- In her "defense," you'll note that Colbert and his minions didn't dare touch the real third rail. This whole story would have played itself out very, very differently had his tweet come at the expense of African Americans. Imagine had it used the N-word, or otherwise hit on some black stereotype or nickname. Asians are making, umm, "progress" in the politics of victimhood and popular opinion, but they're far from the hallowed ground occupied by at least one other minority group.
- And can you imagine a group of black bloggers then poking fun at a black slacktivist with a headline like "Dumb N-s Don't Get Joke?" It takes a sad sort of confusion to be an Asian slacktivist, triangulating between enemies and friends and trying to understand where the lines are drawn these days, what sort of demeaning language is ok and what is not. Those same bloggers probably would start a conversation much like Suey - "we can use that word because we're Korean, and as a non-Korean you couldn't understand what the word means to us."
- Lastly, these sorts of episodes remind us that the assimilation of Asians into American culture is nearing completion! In just a few generations they/we've gone from opening liquor stores in bad neighborhoods in spite of the odds to starting unemployed Twitter campaigns from college dorm rooms. Progress!

I think oriental is more similar to negro in terms of offensiveness but I'm white so I don't know. (2)
post #734 of 5610
i find oriental more awkward and backwards than offensive. negro has a historical context that oriental does not

This is utter bullshit, but I am unable to express empathy for you, because I have absolutely had palatable, even tasty, moonshine, and thus do not understand your struggle.
