Regular scheduled programming will resume shortly.
Seriously - you're still promoting a racist show that so many people have demonstrated against?
A show that's steeped in colonial orientalism and as I said in my YOMYOMF post "set in the dreams of White People"?
Again - I'm not saying it's all bad - but you need to think about the Asian America that's tagged to your site then, and what your mission is - because how can Asian Americans fight if members in the community, and an outlet that at least I've thought is supposed to be shedding a light on Asian Americans, is promoting racist shows like "Miss Saigon"?
And while I have nothing against Nick Ut or the commemoration of the anniversary of his famous picture (mostly) - I find it odd that on a site that's supposed to be in the spirit of Asian America, Phan Thị Kim Phúc's name can't be found in a headline - versus doing mostly the same thing as most everyone else - focusing on a naked tortured Vietnamese child. And yes you do have a pic up of her now as an adult - but her name isn't anywhere to be found on it (and sure it's the main page, no captions for images...) - so she's kind of nameless again. Yes, it's still talking about Nick Ut AKA Huỳnh Công Út - but it's the same, somewhat torture war porn imagery we like to remember in America, and about Vietnamese Americans.
When you put those two together - I have a hard time swallowing it.
At Least There's Some Justice? AKA James Harris Jackson Gets It. Unfortunately It Won't Bring Back Timothy CaughmanTuesday, March 28, 2017
On Monday, James Harris Jackson, 28, of Baltimore was indicted Monday on one count each of first- and second-degree murder as an act of terrorism for the March 20 stabbing of Timothy Caughman, 66. He previously was charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.I think this is great, but we gotta do something about the mindset - before this happens.
Shout out to All Things Considered for their article on SXSW. Love love love Melissa Polinar and loving the pic of Run River North.
What are those potato chips?
The 2nd MV from #Arrivals.
Honestly - I don't remember how I even found this - but for some odd reason I was thinking about shitty covers, and I was like - Oh Shit - this is probably the worst cover and video ever for a song.
Seriously - some days, it seems like too much work to have to bring up all the great Viets in the community because it seems like in almost every twist and turn we get forgotten about, overlapped with other people, or just looked at like "Who the fuck do these Viet MF's think they are?".
Honestly - it sometimes gets tiring - not repping my peepages but - having to do it because some people or orgs, or fill in the blank - just have no fucking clue.
Fine - I'll just hit you like I'm kicking in the tunnels and you'll see me coming - well...
A little over 3 thousand.
Can you get them there?
