A few weeks back, an Asian woman made headlines when she was shown crying like an stuck donkey when a Trump supporter allegedly cancelled her AirBnB reservation when she was already en route to the place.
This Asian woman, decides to film a video of herself crying with her tears smudging her makeup across an already unflattering face, goes on to cry for a few minutes on how she was on route, then the host cancelled stating that she did it because:
“Your Asian. It’s why we have Trump.”
Okay so that’s pretty racist, but hello wake up! This is America! As an Asian man born and raised here in America, I can attest that this kind of racism happens quite often not only to Asians but to all types of races. All those negative stereotypes portrayed on us, comments like telling us to go back to China, that we eat dogs and cats, and other ethnic racial slurs that I would not mention on this blog, this stuff is nothing new so man the fuck up!
A lot of people in this country has faced far more brutal racism than this but you don’t see them making a video and crying and sobbing about how she was in this country since she was a child (originally from Korea), she considers herself American, blah blah, wah, wah! All types of minorities and even majorities face racism in America and around the world on a daily basis . Racism is an American thing and its certainly a human characteristic that you can find all over the world and happens to people of ALL types of ethnicity so crying about online is not going to change it a thing or help your cause. If shes trying to gather sympathy from anybody because she was called Asian (not even a racial slur) by this Trump supporter then she gets no sympathy from me. If she wants any sympathy maybe she should cry and sob to her White fiancee.
That’s right. Another Asian woman crying about how she is subjected to racism for being “Asian” but she has a non Asian boyfriend. How typical…Did this Trump supporter burst your little bubble when she reminded you that your NOT white, but Asian?
You think she would cry if an Asian man was told he was “Asian?” I doubt it….she would probably do her best to distant herself from this Asian man. But yet she seems so quick to stick up for other minorities but not anyone do I see her standing up for any hate crimes or racism against Asians.
As far as I’m concerned, crying on a video online is not going to get you any sympathy. It just shows weakness. Compose yourself, make your point and be strong about. Crying like a stuck donkey with your makeup smudged all over just shows weakness and I’m sure the lady that allegedly cancelled your reservation took great pleasure and got a kick watching you sob like a 5 year old child.
Racism is everywhere. It’s a human thing. Learn to be strong and face it with some dignity. Don’t cry like a baby for the world to see.
