I went back four hours and this is what I found…

Heart goes out to the dead, injured, and others in Boston
but also my heart goes out to all the Muslims in the area who will wrongly be rounded up and detained tonight and to their families, and to the ones who will have to face mob violence and a spike of hatred that this event will trigger in the ignorant.
And in the wake of this North Korea madness I’m sure Asians will be targeted too. Everyone, please be careful.
Following weekend reports that teen pop sensation Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, local Bieber fan Khloe McNeal, 13, announced Monday that she was ‘jealous’ of the 15-year-old Holocaust victim. “Biebs went to her house? So unfair,” said the diehard ‘Belieber’ of the persecuted Jewish teen who, after hiding from the Nazis for two years in a cramped attic, died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp just weeks before its liberation. “What makes her so special that she gets a shout out? I retweet him every day and he mentions her by name and calls her a ‘great girl?’ Ugh.” McNeal went on to say that she was so envious of Frank that she wanted to “literally die,” adding that “some girls just have all the luck.”
Oh dear god…
I just threw up in my mouth.
Stupidity level: critical
And while the FBI will be pushing that profile around, cops will still be stopping Black and Brown folks by the dozens.
That is literally one of the reasons it takes so fucking long to find a mother fucker because they are looking at the wrong fucking people.
People send their kids to school, kids get shot.
People watch batman, they get shot.
People run marathons for charity, they get bombed.
Where is the innocence in the world, is there even good left in us?
Teacher sacrifices her life to save children.
Hollywood cancels premiere and Christian Bale goes to honor victims.
People rush to donate their own blood to help out.
Of course there’s bad in the world, but it doesn’t necessarily outweigh the good.
who is this person and where can i hero-worship her
Pardon me for interrupting, but why would you “hero-worship her”??
I am Chinese, I grew up in Guangdong and now live in Beijing. My surname is Yang (杨/楊 in simplified/traditional Chinese characters). And allow me, a born-and-raised-and-live-in-China Chinese, not so humbly inform you: Both Cho and Chang ARE Chinese words pronounced in the Cantonese dialect (the major dialect spoken in Guangdong and Hong Kong), and they are written as 秋 (or any homophones) and 张/張 in Chinese characters. Ask any Cantonese-speaking Chinese, and they’ll tell you this. And SURPRISE: both Cho and Chang can be used as first name AND last name in Chinese.
To sum it up: The girl speaking in this gifset clearly has NO knowledge at all of Chinese language, and is acting very presumptuous about it. And to me, that is a case of racism.
EDIT: Quoting from wikipedia, “Chang is the pinyin romanization of the Chinese surname 常 (Cháng). It was listed 80th among the Song-era Hundred Family Surnames” and “is also the Wade-Giles romanization of two Chinese surnames written Zhang in pinyin: one extremely common and written 張 in traditional characters and 张 in simplified characters and another quite rare and written as 章 in both systems.”# LANGUAGE # LINGUISTIC RACISM # THIS DISGUSTS ME # YOU COULD HAVE HAD YOUR POINT ACROSS WITHOUT CRITICIZING CHO CHANG’S NAME # AND I READ SOMEWHERE SHE WAS PROBABLY NAMED AFTER THE PRONUNCIATION OF THE CHINESE WORDS 惆悵(CHOU CHANG) MEANING MELANCHOLY # WHICH I THINK IS QUITE CLEVER ACTUALLY (via meredithyang)
Because I will always post 2 sides of an argument if presented to me.
Okay so Cho Chang is legit. Doesn’t change the rest of the poem. Or reduce her anger and personal experience.
Praying for my fellow brown people in Boston. Please stay safe.
