“I.e. if there was a magazine for bitter, rude, obnoxious “white” people whose main objective was to uniformly bash local Taiwanese people, then no. We wouldn’t put a banner up for them.”
uh… who said anything about bashing Taiwanese people… Oh, I forgot… All white people hate non-white people… right, right, right… Is that a bit of a stereotype?
I honestly don’t think the website would put up a banner that said, “Written for white people for white people” even if it was aimed at foreigners in Taiwan. People would shout, “RACISM! PREJUDICE!” But it’s perfectly okay for the same type of thing for Asian women?
“Also, to <right…>, in the U.S., there are PLENTY of “white” groups for “white” people only.”
And, in the U.S., there are PLENTY of “NON-WHITE” groups for “NON-WHITE” people only.
For example, the university I attended in the U.S. had fraternities/sororities that were definitely for “NON-WHITE” people only. There were organizations for African-Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, you name it they had it.
Some of these “minority organizations” (whites are officially a minority in California now, and definitely are a minority in the school I attend) would make me so mad, because they would do the same things they accuse white people of doing. I would be walking down the sidewalk at school and I could see the Asian group giving out CDs to other Asians, but anybody who wasn’t Asian they would ignore and let walk by. Hmm… Is that discrimination? Does anybody care? No… But I sure wished I got one of those cool CDs…
I once talked with a Chinese American woman and I told her how much I enjoy learning about the Chinese culture. She looked at me and said, “Shouldn’t you be learning about your own culture, why do you have to learn about mine???”
There obviously are rascist white people who hate other groups, but the same can be said for other groups as well. Didn’t the Chinese call the first foreigners that came to their country “Barbarians”??? “Look at those silly guys, they can’t even use chopsticks!” they must of said while they watched them eat.
I noticed on the magazine that advertised as a magazine “For Asian Women written by Asian women” that there were articles about Asian people and White people. It seemed the magazine was more for people with a background in Asia or experiences that somehow connected them to Asia. I actually enjoyed some of the articles. But with a title so obviously biased, I would never have read it if it were not for this forum. Who wants to read a magazine that says is not written for you (and makes that the biggest selling point).
yummy, their giving away free xiangji pai… I’m outta here…
