This is the bs that shows up on google search for Asian and when I try to tag my tumblr and twitter posts “Asian.” Try and tell me this Asian fetish and racism ain’t real.

I literally feel nauseous. A little girl in a bathing suit and the caption is “legendary trap”. Are.. you serious. No.

I’m done.

We’re all about an Anna May Wong biopic.

But why not cast a Chinese American actress, and work with Asian American writers?

My guess is Fan Bingbing will be a big draw in the international market. But still.

Anna May Wong was 3rd generation Chinese American, and was the first to ever portray the “dragon lady” trope. This is going to be interesting…

Well that’s disappointing news from an international film distributor but as Steven Yeun was saying

The text under the gifset I just reblogged is the real deal. Lucy Liu has always been a favorite of mine and she hit the nail on the head. In light of recent events regarding race, I’ve started to really think about what it means to be an Asian-American. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told, “Asians are basically white people” or “You act so white for an Asian girl.” What the fuck is that supposed to mean? For starters, I have little to no representation in the media. I fell in love with theatre when I was a kid and it was so disheartening to not see anyone who looked like me on stage. Stuff is hurtful. In regard to the first comment, I’m surprised by how many times I’ve heard that. Am I not considered a POC? I went to Hershey Park last month and while waiting in line for a roller coaster, an older white man said “nihao” to me. When I didn’t respond he started speaking Korean phrases. I don’t know, man. How is a person supposed to identify as one thing when you’re told the opposite? 

Fierce ladies I adore 11/25 (in no particular order): Lucy Liu

"I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough, so it gets really frustrating."
