    So, I got called racist for liking Asians. Me. Really. I’m black, but I’m racist for liking Asians. God, I hate people. Racism is an ugly thing. Don’t ever accuse someone of being racist unless you know what you’re talking about.

    Mood : Annoyed
    • Just ignore them honey, they’re begging for a reaction and they’ll provoke you in anyway! It’s obviously not racist, especially since you’re talking about your interests, but just remember they’re silly and immature and don’t really know what they’re talking about- ESPECIALLY when it involves you and your interests. Just remember, you know you’re not a racist, so don’t give them the reaction they’re looking for. I wish you a wonderful week, my inbox is open if you need a friend :) x

    • There’s something called Orientalism, or like Asian fetish, I think it’s useful to look up into it to see if this criticism was a gratuitous personal attack, or instead something you said or did that was problematic (perfectly possible since it’s hard to be perfect). @pentastic

      When a claim is that ridiculous, it can be dismissed outright. It can knock at our brains with the magnitude of its stupidity, but ultimately the opinion of a person that far removed from good sense does not matter.

      Asians are beautiful like any other culture, and there is a lot to appreciate about them. Dismiss that blind ignorance and continue enjoying your love of Asians.

    • Don’t let anyone be horrible towards you @pentastic, you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect, ignore those who are ignorant and focus on the people that bring brightness into your life and that make you smile, you can do it, be positive and don’t give up, I’m always here if you need to talk, message me anytime if you want, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)
