If you claim to be an activist and say “it’s not my job to educate you” then you’re a pretty terrible activist. the point of activism is to advocate for your cause, spread information and try to get people to understand your goals. If you refuse to even help people understand, then you’re a pretty terrible activist and will probably turn people off of your cause.

Not everyone you meet who is marginalized is an activist. Like everyone else, marginalized people would like to live first, and take care of themselves first, because otherwise how else can they do anything?

Even if the person is an activist, activists need downtime, as well, because they’re people. What, an activist is supposed to be on the clock 24 × 7 or else they’re a terrible activist? You can’t tell me that’s right. Activists aren’t there to serve you. Are activists measured by customer satisfaction now?

Is that what your education has become, the consumption of a product, proffered by ever-smiling, ever-patient, ever-understanding subalterns who can tailor the message they’re supposed to give to your comfort, to give you enough space to grow and yet not alienate you?

Or else what? You won’t do anything about it? You’ll continue being complicit? You’ll continue abusing people? You’ll continue being silent? You’ll continue blaming the victim? You’ll continue perpetuating injustice?

You can see how this is problematic?

You can’t? Well, it’s not my job to provide you with the empathy to understand the internal workings of another person. You should have picked up that shit when you were a toddler, and if you didn’t, I don’t know what else I can do for you.

What’s frustrating about a lot of these “why don’t you educate me” people is that they don’t get it.

We did tell you what was wrong. That was the education part.

When you tell us why, it’s a big tip off that (a) You’re going to argue with us (b) you don’t get it (c) you won’t get it (d) you don’t want to understand (e) you’re just being annoying (f) ALL OF THE ABOVE

We told you what was wrong. It’s your job to accept that, or go study basic human rights on your own time.

It makes no sense for the unaffected to say nothing’s wrong because they themselves don’t experience it.

Break Through

New paint plus an additional detail shot - it’s kind of a tall piece so it’s hard to really get tumblr to do it much justice. There’s a slightly bigger version of it you can see as a whole here.

If I hear one more time about how kimchi smells

to any non-Korean dainty nose holes, I will flip my shit.

it is not funny
it is not funny
it is not funny

in fact it’s actually really fucking disrespectful

i realized i have this weird anxiety/irrational fear, whenever i apply for new [min wage] jobs. i'm nervous that they won't hire me because they've fulfilled their "Asian" girl quota. i think this fear/anxiety has increased because at my current job there are three of us and our co-workers constantly say we look alike and even call us by the others name. i like to think they don't do it on purpose, but, for me, it's like an erasure of us as individuals...

I feel this a lot. Like basically when I’m applying for anything.

OH MY GOD. Okay so in the main office of my facility, there’s only women working in it (main head office lady is East Asian, there’s a new secretary/admin assistant that’s East Asian and another lady that’s a mix of black and something else?) I applied for a semi-office position (I’d technically an Administration operator within the office but I’d still be going out into the warehouse at some point) and I was super worried that my senior manager (white male, typical) had “filled his quota of WoC”.

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Gone In 41 Seconds — Police Quick to Kill Korean Artist

Feb 24, 2008

LA HABRA, Calif. — On the afternoon of December 31, 2007, two police officers encountered Michael Cho in the parking lot of a liquor store in La Habra, a small, generally quiet city in Orange County, California. It didn’t take long for the meeting to go bad. After less than a minute the officers unleashed a barrage of bullets on the 25-year-old artist, ending his life - and setting off an ongoing cascade of protests across Southern California’s Korean American community.

Computerized police logs obtained by New America Media suggest the officers quickly turned to deadly force when they confronted Cho, whom they suspected of vandalism. According to the Computer Automated Transcript documenting the incident, at 2:04 p.m. the cops contacted their dispatcher to say they’d located Cho. “Out with the subject near the liquor store,” the transcript reads. Just 41 seconds later they radioed dispatch again, this time saying they’d shot the suspect and now needed paramedics to attend to him. “Shot fired, Suspect down, Medics requested,” reads the transcript. In the aftermath of the killing, Cho’s family has publicly condemned the department, saying the officers rushed to shoot Cho, rather than using less lethal tools like pepper spray or Taser stun guns to subdue him.

“The police killed my son like a dog,” Cho’s mother, Honglan Cho, recently told the La Habra City Council. According to Shelly Lynn Kaufman, an attorney for the Cho family, the fusillade of bullets left ten holes in his body.

I hate how some pads are scented. Like, no one is going to be close enough to the harbor at that time to get a whiff. That port is closed, there’s no point in hanging up Fresh Car Air Freshener around the dock.
