Me as stalker of every asian guys
Today I went in Brussels and saw every asian guy there …so many *.* there *.* there… I’m in heaven~~~ *.* ♥♥♥♥♥
Yea I live in Belgium and didn’t went properly in Brussels stayed only at train station. Today it was first time that I went properly there. Why I don’t live there? ㅠㅡㅠ

So the last I liked so much because it’s really rare and unusual to see guys like korean actors in drama. That guy looked alike so much. That I took a picture.
The first has so many tatoos and was fine not really handsome.

They are not the only ones that I saw. There were so many. I will bring camera next time because it’s really weird to take pictures with a phone.

You are FUCKING DISGUSTING don’t take random pictures of strangers and DON’T FUCKING STALK PEOPLE you are a FUCKING CREEP

-admin J

This is the one time of year that I love wasps.

Not because the wasps themselves get any nicer. They’re horrid little creatures year round. No, it’s because I have a couple of big apple trees out back, and late August, early September is when the apples start ripening.

Now, if you don’t harvest your own fruit, there are two things you need to know about apples.

The first thing you need to know about apples is that, when apples get ripe, they tend to fall from the tree at the slightest breeze.

I often work late at the office; by the time I get home, there are piles of apples scattered everywhere - and sure enough, the wasps are out in force, gorging themselves on the fruit. When I go to clean up the windfallen apples, the wasps naturally do the “rawr, I’ma fuck you up!” routine for which wasps are known.

The second thing you need to know about apples is that they ferment very rapidly in the late August heat.

So: the wasps try to come at me, but they’re too drunk to fly. They get about an inch off the ground, then faceplant directly into the turf, flip over onto their backs, and lay there, legs twitching in the air as they try in vain to find something to sting.

Perhaps I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I bust up laughing every. single. time.

Fucking wasps.

YOU GUYS READY?!!?

SKT 화이팅!

Though I haven’t seen any of Samsung’s matches. I’m surprised Samsung has a team with LoL now, but I’m also surprised they didn’t jump in sooner.

I will fucking fight for and protect asian women who don’t feel they’re beautiful cause they don’t fit the skinny, pale, double-lid, small nose, and petite and short physique that is the ***ideal*** asian girl. 

You make us hate our eyes, our skin, our nose, our hair, our bodies, because we’re “too asian” and don’t have eurocentric features that you find attractive and determine our worth and beauty.

Fuck y’all for making asian women feel ugly if they don’t fit your mold of how we should look like. 

surprisebitch:

this is why you cant say that nicki is not a feminist

Yeah I still love her but I have a big issue with her pretending to be bisexual. It’s very offensive to everyone in the LGBTAQIA* community.

KimonoTime, A.K.A. Kelsey Ellison’s experience with X-Factor UK

Please read:
TLDR: I got scouted and had a private audition because of my videos and made me feel they were really interested in kpop. The celebrity judges in the room audition wanted more Korean and then at Wembley the monitors weren’t on so I couldn’t hear my voice and was told I was terrible and they didn’t understand why I sung in Korean and I was in the wrong country, humiliating me in front of 5,000 people. In both auditions I didn’t get chance to prepare, because in the room audition they forgot about me and in the Wembley Audition they abandoned me and then put me on first.

Even though this isn’t related to shopping or my blog in particular, I felt the need to share this because it does relate to how Asian fashion, music, and the culture in general is perceived and manipulated by the media. It’s unfortunate that Kelsey was sought out for the sole purpose of making her, and kpop enthusiasts, look like fools. For another example of how this often happens, watch TLC’s My Strage Addiction “Living Doll” episode which features Venus Angelic and a girl named Emily, who are both into lolita or jfashion. While Venus’s segment may be true to her character, Emily’s segment was very scripted and edited and made to look weird and both Venus’s and Emily’s segments were manipulated to give a misrepresentation of the lolita subculture or jfashion in general. 

With that small slightly-irrelevant rant aside, I wish for others to spread this around, because it isn’t fair to Kelsey that she was badly mistreated and it was very unprofessional and misleading on X-factor’s end, especially if this could have potentially hurt Kelsey’s career or give her a bad image.

Thank you so so much for sharing this and to everyone who has been supporting me! <3

A friend just showed me this let me make a few points real fast ok

  • You were humiliated because you put yourself in that position. The judges were right to question why you were attempting Korean because it was obviously unnatural to you and you were using it for the sake of being different or “exotic”. You were using the language as a costume and that’s why it’s bad and you deserved what you got.
  • This has nothing to do with how Korean media or culture is portrayed and everything to do with white people appropriating our language to seem different and just end up making a mockery of it, and of themselves.
  • In response to the person who commented above, there is no such thing as Asian culture.
  • There is
  • no such
  • thing as
  • "Asian culture"
  • "Rini"? Either this is from Sailor Moon or you just found the name somewhere, either way.. Give me a fucking break.

"Asian fashion, music, and the culture in general is perceived and manipulated by the media. It’s unfortunate that Kelsey was sought out for the sole purpose of making her, and kpop enthusiasts, look like fools"

Okay to start off with your Korean probably isn’t that fluent anyways and why are you acting like you are a representative of our pop culture? And “asian fashion, music, and the culture” uhhh Asia is made up of vastly different countries with different fashion, music, and culture and you’re talking about pop culture here which is just a part of Korean culture specifically. AND GOOD! I AM GLAD YOU LOOKED LIKE A FOOL because YOU ARE ONE. Stop acting like you are special for liking another country’s music. A lot of people in Korea like American pop and they don’t go around like “ooh I am so special ooh”.

Honestly the only thing I hear here is “I like another country’s pop music and I was made to look like a weirdo because of it”. Guess what it wasn’t because you are liking another country’s music and maybe it’s because you can’t sing. And stop acting like you give a fuck about us or our culture. You would do something about the American bases here for one if you really cared. And again, you aren’t special.

Dirty secret of black-on-Asian violence is out   

May 2, 2010

San Francisco’s hidden truth is out. That’s what community organizer Carol Mo calls the realization that Asian residents are being targeted for robberies, burglaries and intimidation by young black men.

"It is San Francisco’s dirty little secret," said Mo, a former Safety Network Community organizer in the Sunset District. "It’s not news to us."

Hundreds of people marched into Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting to express their fear, frustration and outrage. But so far the response has been disappointing, particularly from the San Francisco Police Department. It seems intent on downplaying the role of race and its impact in the community.

The recent incidents of black violence against Asians is the perfect opportunity to open a dialogue about racism. Instead, they are attempting to close the door.

City officials, including the Police Department, say these assaults are part of a larger crime picture where gangs of kids take advantage of a vulnerable group of small stature. But Mo participated in a 2008 survey by the Police Department in which about 300 strong-arm robberies were analyzed. “In 85 percent of the physical assault crimes, the victims were Asian and the perpetrators were African American,” she said.

The squeamishness city officials are experiencing about confronting those numbers doesn’t reflect well on anyone. No one is saying the entire African American community is violent. But ignoring the legitimate anger and frustration from Asians is disingenuous and unfair.

"We love San Francisco," said the Rev. Norman Fong, a Presbyterian minister. “And we don’t want to do anything to divide the communities. But at the same time, our community is hurting and we feel like our voices are not being heard.”

Now that the Asian community has found its voice, city leaders must listen and respond. What should be done? Here are a few suggestions:

— Understand the underlying conflict: This isn’t just about stealing iPods. There’s a deep divide between the two communities. Edward Chang, who lectures on civil unrest and race relations at UC Riverside, has studied the contentious history of Korean-African American relations in Los Angeles when Korean store owners moved into black neighborhoods.

"There was this sense of being invaded by someone else," Chang said. "There was a sense of needing to protect and defend their turf."

Another factor is the way the two cultures are perceived. Lee Mun Wah, a Berkeley-based documentary filmmaker and diversity trainer for large corporations, said there is resentment over how Asians are seen as “the favored minority.”

"We are pitted against each other," Wah said. "African Americans sometimes say, ‘We did all the work in civil rights, and they get all the benefits.’ "

— Create a dialogue: As Chang said, “In order to build trust, you must do things together.” Wah suggests hiring black employees in Asian stores. Board of Supervisors President David Chiu is pushing a summer program to hire black and Asian youths to work together in community patrols.

— Speak up: Chiu thinks the language barrier is a huge part of the reason Asian victims do no report crimes. He stresses the need for multilingual police officers.

But the Chinese community also needs to overcome its reticence to go to the police. They are only making themselves more vulnerable by being seen, as one officer put it, as “silent, vulnerable and unwilling to fight back.”

— Listen to Mrs. Cheng: The 52-year-old woman was attacked March 22 when a 15-year-old boy allegedly threw her off the Muni platform at Third Street and Oakdale Avenue. She was injured, but she says she doesn’t want retribution.

"This is my simple request," she wrote in an e-mail with the help of an interpreter. "That we can all live safely in our own homes without being burglarized. I feel ashamed that this horrible bad luck has happened to me. I only hope that my bad luck will fend off future bad luck situations for other people."

And then she added one more thought.

"My neighbor is black," she said. "Though we can’t communicate much, he is a good person and a good friend. He often jokes that he would teach me English and I Chinese to him."

That would be a great start - two people talking.
