Whether you agree with Suey Park or not, the way this interview was handled was abominable and disgusting. This was set up from the very beginning to make her opinion look “stupid.” 

I have to agree - using racist jokes, even in the name of so-called “satire” will not do anything to actually end racism. it just gives white people an excuse to laugh at POC’s expense, and feel like they’re not being assholes for it. look at chapelle’s show. People may say that Suey is overreacting, but honestly, as she points out, sometimes you HAVE to overreact because it’s the only way to be heard. In America especially, (white) people are terrified of making black jokes, but Asian jokes are still free reign. Do you think Colbert’s team would have written a similar joke about black people? Or even Latinos? Casual racism against Asians is still considered OK, and it’s NOT OK, and we can debate what “satire” is all we want, but we shouldn’t debate an Asian’s woman’s right to be angry or simply fed up after a lifetime of having to deal with this bullshit. White liberals are the worst.

Like the quote says, white people really think that racism is “a feeling,” they REALLY don’t get it is a system that we all play a part in whether we want to or not. Ambushing Suey like this was not productive, it was not a teachable moment. All they wanted to do was make her look like an unreasonable Angry Asian woman, pitting her against two white men who were completely unequipped intellectually to handle the conversation in a useful way. “As a white man, I have no right to share my opinion…” How fucking patronizing.

White men are so fucking butthurt when they are called out for being white men, when the fact that they benefit from living in a patriarchal, white-run society is acknowledged. How dare she call them out, right? How dare she point out that they could never even begin to understand where she comes from because they’ve never fucking had to? This makes my blood boil. When I first saw the joke in question, guess what? I didn’t find it offensive. I couldn’t wrap my head around what was so wrong. Like others, I thought to myself, “but it’s ~satire~~~ right?”

But guess what? I am not an Asian woman.

The experience of an Asian woman is beyond my realm of understanding. So what did I do? I read, and I learned, and I unlearned the racist and anti-Asian thinking that we are all susceptible to, whites and POC alike, when we live in a racist society. I may not understand fully, but if there’s one thing I’m not going to do, I’m not going to ridicule or diminish anyone’s right to feel angry, to turn that anger into a joke. I have some Asian-American friends who have rolled their eyes and called this ridiculous.

I also can’t judge them for not finding the tweet offensive, for agreeing with their white liberal friends that it was “satire.” But there is a larger discussion to be had about anti-Asian attitudes that people are going out of their way to step over in order to intellectually belittle Suey Park and I am NOT HERE FOR IT.

Wow I just watched this interview and I have to say I can’t believe the entitlement and audacity this man had to interview her like this and then call her opinion “stupid”.

This is exactly what happens to WoC on a daily basis. And white people are still wondering why we’re rightfully angry?????

The backlash from white liberals and white liberal media in this case has been absolutely disgusting and I hope has illuminated for some folks the uselessness of white liberalism/liberals in general. But I do take issue with the section of this writeup here that claims white folks, particularly in America, are terrified of making jokes at the expense of Black folks and Latin@ folks. And also, how there’s this subtle implication that casual racism against the aforementioned communities is less okay than the casual racism against Asian folks. The ridiculousness of this situation does not have to be made at the expense of Black and Lation@ folks.

thank you, glitterlion. this society is ABSOLUTELY not above making jokes at the expense of black people and latin@ people so like, can you not. please stop using the experiences of other groups to make a point.

but yes indeed that suey park huffpo interview was 1000% horrible

i love seeing bey and jay working together. there’s only a few things i think would be better than being able to create and be in your element and creative with your significant other. like there’s just so much love and passion and dedication involved in that and allowing the person closest to you…

12 Ridiculously Bad Hip Hop Songs We All Secretly Love

Here are 12 of the worst hip hop songs we all secretly love.

i don’t understand how some of these songs are “ridiculously bad”…

this is some white nonsense. in what world is any juvenile song ridiculously bad? especially slow motion. i am personally offended.

this is some white nonsense

white people need to shut the fuck up about black art forms forever and ever amen. 

why he look like stevie j after some skin bleaching

the comments are taking ol boy to task, too. good because all these songs are good and not in an “ironic hipster way”

"mesmerize" by ja rule and ashanti is one of my favorite bougie girl jamz so like this man is bringing dishonor directly to my doorstep

that line under the sean paul video is like… rubbing me the wrong way, too. i dunno i hate when white folks do that thing where they can’t understand an accent, so they make fun of it.

also anyone who comes for kelis is asking for shame

yesssss ie the thing they do to sofia vergara ALL. THE. TIME. like get over it
