1968, Asian American high school students attend the Black Panther Party funeral rally for Bobby Hutton,16 years old BPP member.

Nice pic and clip of history. That year, in 1968, my Mom was a new immigrant to the US from China, but she immediately identified with the Black Panthers struggle against racism and began attending civil rights and anti-war rallies, first in Berkeley and then in Chicago. When I was born in New York in the 1970s, my parents were printing a Chinese language progressive socialist newsletter out of our garage. That’s my Asian American upbringing.

my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate

Anonymous inquired i totally agree on that jon stewart post but do you think it's his fault he's getting all that credit or just his privilege? i mean would it be better if he didn't say anything at all? people should stop glorifying him and give actual poc the means to speak but imo he's not the one to blame for the racism in media and in general (unless he's done other shitty things i don't know about)


there was a great post here some time ago which perfectly summed up the way i feel abt both the daily show and colbert report (tho i get the feeling that colbert isn’t as fucking obnoxious. then again isn’t he?? i might not be the best judge here since i am speaking from a non-american side-line observer perspective), which is that they both captialize and benefit from the very things they cast their satirical stones @ in their shows. their shows would have no place for existence if it weren’t for the horrible state of american politics, republicans, classim, racism, bigotry etc present in the society. they’d be without job. hence my use of “parasitic”. they do nothing to even scratch the surface of the status quo, more than that, they actively uphold it and benefit from it, while at the same time acting like these horrible white men they make fun of are nothing like themselves. they’re part of a narrative they mock and they at the same time distance themselves from it and cash in on it. i believe the term here is “limousine liberals”. and as far as jon stewart is concerned, i once saw someone describe him as a court jester meaning that he provides the laugh, the comic relief and a comfortable liberal washing the hands off of the terrible state of things, which i think is very accurate. he literally makes money on pretending he’s one of the good guys via superficial satire. plus, he’s a piece of shit, ya know? amongst other things i’m sure ppl could give u examples of — he’s anti-union, classist, he’s self-righteous and conceited. check this out (from 2010 but i doubt he’s changed his views since then):

GROSS: Now, some people are worried. There’s a big AFL-CIO liberal march, there’s the FFL, the NAACP, a whole bunch of groups. Some people worry that your march is going to take away from their, like, serious political march.

STEWART: Right, yeah. Tough shit.

GROSS: Why do you say that?

Mr. STEWART: I have a job. I don’t have to do yours. I don’t have to do their job. Let them do their job. If their job is to motivate the voters and to rally people to their cause, God bless. Do whatever you’ve got to do. But that’s not my job. My job is to, again, express our point of view comedically about what we view as the political process.

You know, I don’t I have no obligation to the Democrats or progressives or liberals or unions. Our feeling is, corruption is corruption. If a union is corrupt, you can’t leave it alone because it’s a union, and they help so that 8-year-olds don’t work in factories anymore. You know, you have to go where you feel like the absurdity is. So we’re not anybody’s we’re not warriors in their cause. And if they’re upset, they should have thought of that, you know, the past couple of years, before they lost, you know, the momentum that they had gained in 2008.

wow. sounds like a calculated asshole, right? that’s prolly cause he is one. and what the fuck that does even mean? "My job is to, again, express our point of view comedically about what we view as the political process." B/c it sounds like, “I don’t really give a shit abt actively participating in changing the state of things since i am way to comfortable on my high horse here making big bucks on just ~~laughing abt it~~” like correct me if i’m wrong but he gives off a vibe of a dude who wears a fedora ironically and secretly enjoys the big bang theory.

I remember explaining to a co-worker that S0malis are not mixed but yes there are clans who have Arab in them and that’s acknowledge. End of discussion except no cuz a s0mali coworker told another one were half Italian. Like all of us. Like me. I explained it to her too cuz she was 15 and also sweet.

Someone at this garage really likes Rihanna like if loving is what u want Rihanna.

I’m starting to feel tired. I might be able to sleep at a reasonable time for the first time in a long time. 

Im glad my blackness can’t be hid like my religion. I don’t wear a hijab so you can imagine the type of things ppl say when they don’t know I’m muslim.
