Black culture is popular, black people are not

August 17, 2014 / 0 comments

I came across the following tweet today and thought that it makes a powerful statement on race in a succinct, clear manner; a reality check in eight words: “Black culture is popular, black people are not,”

Here’s another hit to any remaining idealistic view of humanity. Try not to be too effing jaded coming out of it and throw a bunch of shit on the floor like I just did.

Locals are angry that Wen Hui Ruan was brutally assaulted and died from his attack from 20-year old Jamie Pugh. Now after a memorial and some time to reflect, the community is outraged that no one acted sooner to get him help.

Scrolling through my Facebook feed, I came across a shocking image of what looked like a frozen bag of rats/mice.

Chink receipts becoming Twitter on paper?

Are racist restaurant receipts becoming a thing?

May 16, 2014 / 1 comment

I’ve been running across a pattern of incidents where receipts (mostly restaurants) are being used to post racist slurs in the place of customer names.

If there’s a photo that should change the minds of sports fans that want to keep their precious Indian mascots, this photo of a Native-American coldly staring at a fool supporting the Cleveland Indian’s Chief Wahoo just might be it.

Arthur Chu is winning Jeopardy because he knows the answers to the clues

March 10, 2014 / 1 comment

Arthur Chu is the 2014 version of Jeremy Lin. I know it’s weird to compare an NBA player to a nerdy Jeopardy! contestant, but in many ways Chu and Lin are similar when you view them through the Asian-American lens.

Stop talking up Aaron Craft like he’s a superstar. He’s not even close.

February 11, 2014 / 33 comments

Today, I watched The Aaron Craft Show (season 4, ep. 25) also known as any Ohio State basketball game on national TV. Every time Ohio State ends up on ABC or ESPN, the announcers fall over each other for the chance to honor him verbally.

When Arthur Chu got the call to be on Jeopardy!, Chu decided to look up “Jeopardy strategies” not only so he could increase his chances of winning and not fall flat on his face on national TV, but so he could pull in max greenbacks.

(Who is Paint? His name is Jon Cozart.) After a few hours spent snorting and laughing, I decided to give the po-tay-toes song a rest (I was hungry). So instead of clicking replay for the 71st time, I actually let the video finish.

When I recently discovered that there was a museum dedicated to the Chinese American experience, I immediately placed it on my shortlist of places to go: museum, YMCA, Zara for their bi-yearly sale, and Prosperity Dumpling.

Remember the Japanese Tsunami that killed 20,000 people back in 2011 complete with terrifying videos of waters swallowing up people, villages and destroying everything in its path? Well, what we saw as a tragedy, Gilbert Gottfried saw punchlines.

Racist Tweets attack Asians on Twitter

The 12 most infamous racist tweets, ‘Twitter attacks’ on Asians

December 31, 2013 / 30 comments

Twitter can be a powerful social tool; anyone can share their feelings at any moment, tweet their opinion about any event, from anywhere.  Because Twitter works on that impulse, the reactions can also provide a window into the brain of the tweeter. And taking those related tweets together, one can also get a sense of…

Humanity Has Fallen: ‘Red Dawn,’ ‘Olympus’ inspire racist tweets

December 30, 2013 / 2 comments

When it comes to motivations for racist violence, the case of Olympus Has Fallen and Red Dawn just may take the racist cake (NS;LX that came up on Google). It’s by far the most illogical and mind-boggling event. I never thought a MOVIE would inspire nationalism to swell up so big and muscley (and apparently the…

When Asiana flight 214 crashed at San Francisco International Airport back in July, the ignorant Twitter monkeys came out to swipe at the low-hanging fruit. Patting themselves on the back, they fed each other variations of “Asians can’t drive” jokes.

Sorry Kate Gosselin, you can’t marry into racial empathy

December 29, 2013 / 11 comments

I reserve a special place in my heart for Asians that justify and encourage ignorance by demeaning and clowning themselves by playing up stereotypes. I have a similar cramped, dark and musty space for those that should know better. Earlier this year, someone obtained a photo of Kate Gosselin pulling back the corner of her…

If I filed blog posts like I filed real files, I’d file this blog post in my tabbed manila folder labeled ‘NS;LX’  which stands for ‘Not Surprised; Low Expectations.’ Even if I didn’t flinch when I heard about all the idiotic tweets about our new Miss America, it’s still worth mentioning how ridiculously low the level…
