Please tell me that these people are not jackasses or racists pretending to be Asian. More people are uncomfortable of supporting an Asian American president, well soon, we need one.I am not Asian, but I agree that we need an Asian American president
Unfortunately, they don't feel comfortable supporting one(wikipedia, but still).
What surprises me is that I never heard anything about Pacific Islanders having problems or discrimination against them, yet they get their own history month, and its paired up with Asians(API month is this one I think). I am not being racist, but have they suffered any shit like being banned from becoming US citizens, virtually being banned from immigrating to the United States? Then again, its the United States that decided to clump those two together, they couldn't put other or Oceanian or something else, it would be easier.
Also, they are remaking Karate Kid, of course, the main characters are Japanese and Black. Thats good, what the problem is that it seems to mistaken Karate with Kung-Fu. That, and is this another stereotype(the karate/kung-fu teacher is Asian)? Don't get me wrong, its better than having another white person who is yellow faced who acts with a horrible Asian accent, but at the very least have the kid be Asian as well, its okay that he is black, but maybe if they decide to remake it again, have both of them Asian.
Now, I am wondering, if I do get into UC, what school should I go to? Looking for a good Engineering school, with a high amount of Asians as well. Besides UCLA.
Like what someone said(think it was SouthAsian), it seems like every time an Asian gets to be in movies, its either fake(yellow-faced white), evil, store owner, kung-fu/karate/martial arts master/mistress, weaklings, sexually submissive, submissive to whites, or suspicious people. That is horsefuckingshit. This country seems to be still racist, and when they stop being racist towards everyone, including Asians, Hell has finally frozen over. Hell, I heard that Asians have a harder time getting into college, example:
White: 4.3 GPA with 2250 SAT
Black: 4.35 GPA with 2300 SAT
Hispanic/Latino: 4.25 GPA with 2225 SAT
Asian: 5.0 GPA with 2400 GPA
3 slots are left. I bet they won't choose the Asian because they think we are too perfect, or there is too many. Bullshit. This seems like Affirmative Action, I am not against it that much, but every person should have at the very least an equal chance. Most qualified should be accepted, regardless of race.
If this offended anyone, sorry. But I am really, really pissed off. Needed to rant, or vent my anger. And yes, it could be possible to get a 5.0 GPA, AP+DE+IB classes, all of them.
