What I Found Out Today: I’ve been Twittering a lot lately, so I’m down with all my RTs, DMs, hashtags, FFs, and H/Ts…. but lately, I’ve run across a tweet that includes the “MT” abbreviation. Continue reading “What does ‘MT’ stand for on Twitter?”
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 the collective mindset. Continue reading “The 12 most infamous racist tweets, ‘Twitter attacks’ on Asians”
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 brain to shrink in equal proportion), to the point that moviegoers would come out of the bargain matinee as if they naively soaked up propaganda from decades ago.
Guys and gals alike exited their local AMC after Olympus so pumped up by hate, that they wanted to punch, maim, and kill Asian people. Continue reading “Humanity Has Fallen: ‘Red Dawn,’ ‘Olympus’ inspire racist tweets”

Earlier this year, someone obtained a photo of Kate Gosselin pulling back the corner of her eyes in a way that ignorant assholes taunt Asians. Continue reading “Sorry Kate Gosselin, you can’t marry into racial empathy”
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 of ignorance (like, really ignorant) that was on display when Indian-American Nina Davuluri won the 2014 title. Continue reading “Nina Davuluri is Miss America, but not American according to racist tweets”
You know that footage of teenage girls at a boy band concert where they’re visibly shaking, holding up signs made of glitter, wearing homemade shirts, screaming ‘I love you’ at the top of their lungs, all the while on the verge of fainting from all the adrenaline? Continue reading “Justin Bieber, One Direction fans attack Lorde, her boyfriend with racist tweets”
SantaCon stumbled across the East Village and into Brooklyn this past Saturday. The get-dressed-as-santa-barcrawl-thats-it-cum-frat-party started just a couple blocks away from me at Tompkins Square Park.
Unlike San Francisco, it’s nice to see the media here is nearly unanimous in its revulsion. Continue reading “Here’s Why SantaCon Sucks”
