Asians and dyed hair



  • I was having this little convo with a couple of people on Twitter and thought it’ll be interesting to hear your thoughts on the matter.

    I tweeted that I didn’t like G-Dragon with his weirdly colored orange hair and wished that he would go back to black because imo, black hair looks the best on guys.

    I mean, if I were to choose between this: tumblr_nydoknfSRP1qb2yato1_250.png

    and this:

    G-Dragon_1441825226_gd.jpg

    It’s obviously no contest. Black hair looks the most masculine/sexiest imo.

    A couple of guys (both Asian guys) tweeted me back and said they felt the same way about Asian girls dying their hair. They prefer the girls to keep their hair black.

    So we all know it’s a very common trend to see Asians, especially the girls, dying their hair. But I’m curious as to what you guys think about it? Do you prefer the opposite gender to keep their hair black, do you prefer it dyed or you don’t care either way?

    So I don’t know how to use the quote button properly.

    Ya, this is a bit weird. The quote system only works at the first layer (a single “less than sign”). By the second layer (two “less than sign”), it acts as a spoiler hiding device.

    Yeah the arrows confused me lol

    The lynchings are f-king inhumane. The Chinese also got lynched in LA in the past. Basically, a mob of white men (sources vary on how much but it was large) massacred Chinese in LA, men, women, children.

    You may be referring to this?

    The Chinese massacre of 1871 was a racially motivated riot which occurred on October 24, 1871 in Los Angeles, California, when a mob of around 500 white men entered Chinatown to attack, rob, and murder Chinese residents of the city.[1][2] The massacre took place on Calle de los Negros (Street of the Negroes), also referred to as “Nigger Alley”, which later became part of Los Angeles Street. An estimated 17 to 20 Chinese immigrants were systematically tortured and then hanged by the mob, making the event the largest mass lynching in American history.[1][2][3]

    @natalie_ng So I don’t know how to use the quote button properly. I’ll work on that. But to answer your question, I felt like they had contempt for playing the Asian characters. The contempt directed at me was when she was talking down to me in the PM exchange and my avatar was a Japanese guy. The only interaction I’ve had with Americans is online but whenever I make it known I’m Asian or someone else makes it known they’re Asian there’s this weird change in the way they speak. Very weird. Reading stuff on the forums, well, I understand it better now.

    The lynchings are f-king inhumane. The Chinese also got lynched in LA in the past. Basically, a mob of white men (sources vary on how much but it was large) massacred Chinese in LA, men, women, children. They dragged them from their homes and set their places on fire to smoke them out and hung them. You can read up on this or I don’t know, maybe it’s on the site already. But no one was spared. One guy was a doctor who was apparently well respected in the community and they dragged him out and cut off his finger and took the ring on his finger. For the lynchings for black people, the act itself is cruel but to take pleasure in it is just a whole new level of evil. I actually agree with you there about them needing to feel superior. It’s kind of brainwashing. I read about the Irish. I think the English basically starved them somehow and that led to potatoes being a staple for the Irish because they couldn’t really grow anything or they had no food resources. I read up they did look down on the Italians and it was one of the reasons why the Italian mafia was formed. This is why I don’t trust white people entirely and especially, Americans. Funny thing is, I never felt this way when I was younger but maybe it’s because I only saw America as it was portrayed in the media which was always positive.

    This is good that you’ve been able to reach those places. China may possibly be one of the last East Asian countries that doesn’t have an immediate hard-on for anything western just because it is western which is why those in power wants so badly to sabotage/undermine/demonize whatever China is doing or tries to do while ignoring that the west isn’t perfect as well. I mean, have they seen the type of crap that happens in western countries? In the news, someone set a bus driver on fire and just stood there and smiled while everyone in the bus was trying to get out of a bus that was on fire. A taxi driver (who was brown) was the one that broke the back door of the bus to allow everyone to escape. And yes, the guy who set the bus driver on fire was a “mentally ill” white guy. Terrorist would’ve been the more appropriate word.

    i can’t figure out how to send u any messages.



  • @WokenUp

    Neither her nor the white person was interested in role playing the characters at all. I could feel their contempt through the computer screen.

    Do you mean that they had contempt for playing the Asian characters or was their contempt directed at you? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter whether it’s the former or the latter–their racism is still showing.

    I read up on lynchings that happened in America and the glee on white peoples’ faces is horrifying.

    Yeah, sometimes I suspect that their sadistic nature (plus their racism combined) has to do with some kind of mental illness or like what you said, that they were brought up to believe they were superior. I do think your mentioning of them thinking they’re always superior to others is very valid. That would explain why before there were a lot of non-white minorities, they discriminated/hated each other (they looked down on the Irish, the Jews and the Italians too I think, despite all of these groups having white faces like theirs). In other words, they always feel the need to be superior over someone else and if blacks and Asians didn’t exist, I guarantee they would exercise this superiority complex over each other like they once did with the Irish.

    Say, a guy from Germany or France. But I want to say that part of it isn’t entirely the white person’s fault there.

    Yep, a lot of it goes back to white-worshipping on the part of Asians.

    This can be changed over time. I just don’t know how.

    We’re looking to translate a lot of the stuff we write here and on other woke Asian sites to spread around Asian social networks that are commonly used in Asia. We’re hoping to at least educate them on why whites are not as great as they seem to be (by pointing out their tendency to be violent, child molesters, etc…and using a lot of sources and evidence to back it up of course). One of my friends have actually translated some stuff to Chinese and a number of Chinese in Taiwan and China were very appreciative of it, stating that they had no idea how racist/vile so many whites can be. So I think there is hope.

    Btw, completely unrelated but I wanted to ask if you’ll be interested in joining our slack? The slack is a chatroom where both AMs & AFs can discuss Asian-related topics or anything else really. We’re looking to recruit more woke AFs and you seem like a great candidate. Just shoot me a private message if you’re interested ^_^

    @WokenUp

    I was followed and harrassed by a white guy who thought I was a terrorist and threatened to take me back to the bank and then the police station when it was clear I wasn’t co-operating.

    That’s definitely racism at its finest. If anything, YOU should be the one to call the police on him for harassing and threatening a woman.

    It was the first time it happened to me. I was kinda too shocked to do anything. I probably should’ve but I just wanted to get away from the guy because he was a psycho. He blocked my way to get out of the bank initially for some reason and kept on staring at me when we were in the bank which made me nervous. The guy was crazy. He kept on demanding what I was doing in the bank and threatened to take me to the police station himself and that he’d escort me to the police station. I was like, wtf o_0. I just didn’t want him knowing who I was.

    As for the white woman that picked on me, yeah, she doesn’t know what race I am as we were communicating through the computer but the picture I had was of a Japanese guy so that is my suspicion too.

    I see–that would explain it then. Having an AM as your pic does make you a prime target for white bullying/harassment, although I somehow doubt her knowing you’re an AF would lead her to treating you better. I think she just dislikes Asians in general.

    Yeah the weird thing was, she role played with another white person who was playing an Asian female character but my god…it was just, you know how you can tell when people don’t give two shits? That’s what it was like. Neither her nor the white person was interested in role playing the characters at all. I could feel their contempt through the computer screen.

    Because with them, a lot of the time it leads to violence.

    This 100%. I frequently tell others who point out to me that there are racist blacks and hispanic folks too that it doesn’t matter blacks/hispanics are racist because A. they hold no power so their racism has little effect on us and B. racist POC are less likely to be violent than racist whites. Many may disagree with the latter statement but if you step back and take a look at history, you would see that while yes, slavery existed in all civilizations, no other race enslaved people of a different race only because they’re of different races. No other race has so much hatred in their heart that they enjoy lynching, whipping and raping people of a different race. No other race has no problems with completely wiping out the natives of a land in order to colonize it (so much evidence had shown that China had indeed come into contact with Native Americans yet the Chinese left them alone whereas the Europeans immediately sought to kill them). No other race gas chambers people based on religious disagreement. No other race enjoys hosing down people of a different race. No other race turns into Neo Nazis solely to gang up and physically beat minorities to death. And usually, it’s not just minorities they enjoy beating up, but homosexuals as well. So yes, you’re absolutely correct–they tend to be very violent.

    Normal people like the rest of us will simply walk away if we don’t want to associate with someone. We don’t chase after them to beat them or kill them. Even the most nationalistic Asians in Asia I have known don’t hunt down non-Asians to beat them. Yet when you start mentioning white nationalism, everyone starts to tremble and for a very good reason. They’re uncivilized barbarians.

    I agree with you there. Sometimes, the arguments come up that “hey, we’re not the only ones that had slaves!” And I think that’s true but like you said, no one other race has tried to exterminate another race of people solely based on their race. That lynching, whipping and raping thing. Yes, I agree too. I read up on lynchings that happened in America and the glee on white peoples’ faces is horrifying. The key thing that differentiates white people where is that the white settlers thought it was completely okay to do what they do because they were taught some bs that they were special and superior. That was the only way they could do it. I do think they have a conscience because they are human after all but it’s kind of warped and it’s the justifications they have. I’m talking about white Americans in this aspect because I only get this when I read up on stuff about America. I believe you about the Europeans and the Chinese. China doesn’t go around killing the natives so that they can move in and take over the land.

    white parents seem to think that telling them what they want to hear instead what they [i]need[/i] to hear is going to help them in life. Then they go overseas and they can’t cope with the differences. Some manage but the majority, I’ve seen, just end up breaking apart when they figure out that not everything is about them and they have to adapt or die.

    I believe Asians, as a whole, know we have to work much harder to get the same position/success in life as a white person who works half as hard. White parents can afford to raise their kids through rose-colored glasses because the entire society will cater to them. Personally, I find it very common to have a white manager who has zero expertise in what I do and doesn’t even have a degree yet is the boss of a group of people (mainly POC) who hold college degrees. How laughable is that? I even had a white boss once who was pretty much a high school failure yet I was working under him with a college degree (and so were my Asian, Latino and Arab coworkers). Society caters to white people. Their privilege is real. So white parents can afford to tell their kids, “Oh everything will be fine and dandy, the world will love you” because that’s pretty much accurate for them. That’s one of the reasons why I have zero sympathy for white people who become homeless, when they live in a society that prioritizes their success/employment so much but that’s another story for another time. My point is Asians know that we have to work our asses off and get at least a 4-year college degree to get to where a white person with a high school diploma can get to. Whether or not this is the case for just predominantly white countries or overseas as well, I can’t say for sure. I’m tempted to say the entire world worships white people, which would explain why you have dumbfuck, child-molesting white ESL teachers in Asia being hired all over the place, instead of fluent English-speaking Asian-American teachers, so I do wanna say that even in non-white countries, white people still get priority over the rest of us.

    This is what’s so f-ked up about this whole thing. They say that skills, abilities, etc. are important but in reality, white people can get by with minimum effort. They don’t even get reprimanded as harshly when they’re doing something wrong. If an Asian person did the same thing, then all hell breaks loose. I can only say this is in white countries because I haven’t experienced work in Asia. Half of me wants to because I think I won’t go bat$hit crazy at least. But still, with the amount of white ESL teachers in Asia, I don’t even know if I want to. White people do get priority over Western born Asians that can speak fluent English I think, based on stuff I’ve read. They specifically ask for a white person even if that white person does not speak English. Say, a guy from Germany or France. But I want to say that part of it isn’t entirely the white person’s fault there. Asians in Asia refuse to hire a fluent English-speaking Asian-American/Australian/etc. as opposed to a white person because of perception. White person=higher social class=higher prestige=higher social status=better for kids seems to be the common belief. It goes back to the fact that pale skin is associated with wealth. And also, I think it’s because Asians in Asia aren’t used to Asians speaking English as fluently as white people. So there’s that initial assumption already built in. This can be changed over time. I just don’t know how.

    I don’t know what they were trying to do honestly. It was night. The tram had people in it and they were just there being disgusting. The girl wasn’t really responding but she wasn’t doing anything to stop him so it was still PDA. She was just smiling. And yes, I’ve noticed that dramatic thing the older I got. I agree with you about the coffee thing and suing people for that. I thought that was just…idiotic. It’s not McDonald’s fault you spilled hot coffee on yourself. I’ve never had that experience before with someone chasing me for miles over something stupid like that. I was followed and harrassed by a white guy who thought I was a terrorist and threatened to take me back to the bank and then the police station when it was clear I wasn’t co-operating. It was most wtf thing that had happened to me. As for the white woman that picked on me, yeah, she doesn’t know what race I am as we were communicating through the computer but the picture I had was of a Japanese guy so that is my suspicion too. She didn’t do that to anyone else and I know they were all white. And yes, I agree with you there based on past experiences. I just wish they would stop. Because with them, a lot of the time it leads to violence. If it didn’t lead to violence, then I wouldn’t care but they cannot take it when a POC fights back when they bully them like that and that’s when they get dangerous. Not all but a lot. I think it’s the culture and society. I wonder if a white person grew up in an Asian country, would they still be the same? I’m talking pure Asian here. Not places like Singapore or Hong Kong. I’d like to do that with them but I just don’t give a shit. Maybe if I ever go to America and encounter this kind of thing I’ll do it. But with the current climate I’d be scared.

    This thing where they caricature non-white people…I think you’re right. I’ve noticed as I got older, how differently white parents treat their kids as opposed to Asian parents and I recognize this with my family too. White parents, most of them I think, seem to do that to their kids. Asian parents seem to know how to ground their kids and make them less of a princess/prince. And even if they do dote on them, they push them for education because they don’t want their kids to be out on the streets. They know the world isn’t all rainbows but white parents seem to think that telling them what they want to hear instead what they [i]need[/i] to hear is going to help them in life. Then they go overseas and they can’t cope with the differences. Some manage but the majority, I’ve seen, just end up breaking apart when they figure out that not everything is about them and they have to adapt or die. They refuse to adapt and they end up on the streets or getting arrested or making idiots out of themselves in both the local and international community. Yet they (and this is talking about white Americans) expect so much from Asians that come to America and act like they have a perpetual stick up their butts when an Asian person can’t speak perfect English or does something that they see as culturally wrong. But yet it’s ok for them to disrespect Asians in Asia? Hypocritical and arrogant to the 9th degree. And probably more words that I can’t think of atm.


  • administrators

    @natalie_ng Yup, but style of delivery is key. Just calling them mass murderers won’t go down well, but funny stuff like below. It would be more palatable for at least other non-whites.

    bs6USEH.jpg



  • @secondstrike So in other words, if they think they’re the perfect race with upstanding morals that could do no wrong, we emphasize the wiping out of natives, slavery (while preaching “all is made equal before God”), the holocaust, the invention of nuclear wars, Agent Orange, Christian homophobia, pedophilia, and the list goes on.
