100% Filipina, with all the trickles of Spanish and Chinese blood that come with it. I’m not going to explain my background in fractions. I’m going to tell it in stories, and you’re going to listen.

100% Indian, but not 100% sure which ethnic groups I belong to (Bengali and Kashmiri are two that I’m certain of though).

I’m first generation American, but my parents are from Trinidad. I’m tired of other Indians proclaiming that I “know nothing of the culture” (because Indians who don’t…


I’m sick of people telling me my eyes are “ugly” or “chinky” or “too small”.

I’m sick of people telling me that I’d look better with eyelid surgery.

I’m sick of people telling me I’d be pretty if it weren’t for my “mean eyes”.

I’m sick of people assuming I give a shit about their unwanted opinion.

ghostsim asked:
are you guys aware of the blog angrywhiteboysunited(.)tumblr(.)com that was seemingly made in opposition to you and is reblogging some of your content? i don't think i need to give any sort of explanation about what is so gross about it...


I’m not going to look it up because that blog sounds hideous. Just wanted to let followers know that this may be a thing and to be careful. 

But LMAO that the name they came up with is “angry white boys united.” That’s essentially a description of the Klu Klux Klan. 

Another troll blog?


I’m Indian and therefore I’m Asian. Anyone who says otherwise is in dire need of a geography lesson.

Being proud of having so-called “yellow fever” is a form of racism. You are not only trivializing a disease that is still prevalent (yes it really is, affecting roughly 300,000 and killing 20,000 people each year) but also saying you won’t date other races is…well racist, isn’t it? You don’t know what tomorrow may bring; you haven’t met all men from every race. How can you happily dismiss a person based on their ethnicity before knowing their personality? You would be happy with an abusive partner as long as he/she was a particular race? Whether or not this is what you believe, by making that statement, this is the thought that is implied. It is a form of hypersexualization.

Sometimes I feel like people who post things like “I want a Korean boyfriend/girlfriend” have this assumption that all Korean people are like their bias. K-pop does not equal Korea.

“You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all. I was like, “Yo, is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist? And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.”

I find this quote particularly meaningful in light of all the stupidness RE selfies right now. REFLECTION MATTERS.

Hey, I've just come across this blog, and I love it. One question about the map on your about page that - I think - is supposed to be a depiction of what is Asian: are the white countries meant to be non-Asian? I'm talking Pakistan, Myanmar, Cambodia, Turkmenistan, Kyrgizstan. If they're not Asia, why is that? Is that due to a nation's official self-identification, or something else? Thanks :)


nope, the countries are just different colors for some reason. but they’re all asian! the colors don’t have any significance.

Cambodia is all the way at the bottom of Asia..

Am I the only one who was slightly offended by the 2014 Axe Super Bowl Commercial, "Make Love, Not War"? The segment with the Asian (presumably Vietnamese) women with the white soldier gave off some Madame Butterfly vibes.

I’ve noticed it too and got kind of angry.

Last week, Nido Taniam, a 19-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh, was killed in an alleged racial attack in Delhi.

Soon after, two Manipuri girls were beaten up by goons in Delhi.
