"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

image

image

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media.

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.

Ellen.. I was rooting for you..

why? why were u rooting for her? she often mocks and disparages black women’s bodies as well. ellen been problematic. par for the course. the nerd was barely funny as a stand up comic, but that was before a lot of yall time so a lot of “current” ellen don’t know who the fuck this saltine really is. boo this woman. but i mean hey yall root for the white gurl, some easy bake basic shit, cuz hey white gurl fuck yeah!….. nope

Lao Advice for Falang Tourists #3

What is alms-giving? It is a Buddhist tradition, mostly associated with countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos. It is a religiously significant event where Buddhists give food to monks every morning,etc. as they make their round. to make merit towards their community. It is done with silence and no expression, showing respect to the monks. This is part of a Laotian’s heritage and religion. This ritual is extremely important in Luang Prabang, Laos’ former capital.

So, why are tourists treating the event as if it is a circus? The first 3 photos are good. The rest down below? A no-no. There’s been many complaints from the temple community, the monks even feeling they might even have to put a stop to this tradition in Luang Prabang because the tourists were acting ignorant and rude regarding what they were doing.

Nowadays, even tourists can even get a hotel bundle where hotel owners invite monks to their hotels where their guests give alms.(Sadly seen this in person down in Pakse.) This applies to other forms of tourists’ groups where this is part of the tour. 

The monks are not there for your camera and for you to participate as “oooh, you are in such an exotic country, let’s try what these third-world locals go, so magical!!1”. These are locals, practicing a religion. It is completely fine to participate in the alms-giving if you learn first-hand (from locals) how to properly do it without offending anyone.

GOOD:

  • Wear modest clothing, including a sash around the torso.
  • Men can stand, while women kneel on knees or sitting.
  • Must be quiet. 
  • Pay attention to locals and how they give alms and especially when they give advice. It’s their alms-giving ritual, after all. 

BAD:

  • Taking photos is FINE. Don’t, however, snap photos (and use flash) right in front of the monks and locals’ face.
  • RESPECT A MONK’S PRIVATE SPACE.
  • Don’t be loud. (Please talk quietly. Not ideal to talk while giving alms.)
  • Women cannot touch a monk (Including the hand) when giving monks.
  • If you are not giving alms, but still like to see it in person and take pictures, do not be too close and let the monks and the alms-giver have their space.

thepunkandthereckless asked: Why does it matter what race the people are? Shouldn't the only thing that matters is people are dying by the hands of the police and nothing is being done about it? Why does everything have to be about race?

lordbape:

Reread your own message. Who is dying by the hands of the police? Black people.. on purpose.. Black people are intentionally being killed by the police… Not “people”.. because this is happening at an institutional level in which specifically Black people are purposefully being killed, arrested and dehumanized by the police because they are Black. It’s really fucking simple, actually.  There’s a pattern— that’s why race matters. We— Black people— are all as en entire race in fucking danger that’s why race matters. Because it ISN’T just happening to “people”… it’s happening to Black people BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK. It’s not a coincidence.

Why would it not matter that one group of people is intentionally being killed..? They’re being killed by the police BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK.. LITERALLY. Why would it not be about race if Black people are specifically being targeted to be killed like why wouldn’t that be important… Why do you not want to involve race? Tell me if you see a pattern that would help you understand why it’s about race

It is about race, I’m not “making it about race”. Why don’t you want it to be about race when it already is…?

I need feminism; because the bra straps of a twelve year old shouldn’t make a 40 year old married principal with two daughters “uncomfortable”

So am I allowed to walk around adult women who are mothers and grandmothers at work with my cock out or what

in what world is someone’s dick equivalent to a fucking bra strap
