The United States of America
So today on twitter I saw this shit and it disgusted the fuck out of me. What made it worse was the fact people (some PoC) were laughing and thinking it was okay. Then there were people telling her it was wrong and of course you have your self-entitled white people saying it’s just a joke and that black people do it too so it would be wrong both ways.
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
we’ve moved from sex accessory in a white man’s arms to fashion accessory slung on a white woman’s shoulder whoooooo
Surprise surprise, it’s racist garbage. It’s like Frankenstine made an abomination out of katy perry, gwen stephani, and ke$ha. I really shouldn’t have to explain what’s wrong with it, but in the first 5 seconds we have:
Butchered the Japanese language
reduced Japanese people into props
bastardized Japanese street fashion
and made ourselves look like we’re trying WAY to hard to revitalize our careers. My guess at the thought process for this was “what do the kids like these days??? What’s that Japanese stuff called.. um.. kuhwaee? Yeah that’ll get us money! We can still keep pretending like Avril Lavigne is relevant to the younger generation!”
Anyways it was a terrible failure and a really, really sad joke I hope I will never have to see again.
Lol. What is this from
This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
White Heterosexuals in Love
Coming to theatres next spring, a love story that is vaguely forbidden between two kind of sarcastic, innocent cisgender people who grew up in middle class american families.
Based on a book featuring White People Almost Kissing
