To all the White people reading this, you don’t have any right to feel angry and annoyed at people who don’t speak English in this country. Did it ever occur to you that many of the immigrants may have come to this country recently? How do you expect someone to learn a language in just a few days? Weeks? Or months? That would be like us asking you to just fly to China and suddenly be able to speak Chinese. Funny enough, that’s why you don’t see many white people in China and other Asian countries speaking the local language. Some your fellow white expats have been there 10+ years, are treated like royalty, and they don’t ever need to speak a drop of the local language.
So white people of North America, why is it that you cannot have the same respect for many of the immigrants who can’t speak English? It is this writer’s belief that you are just racist. Just admit that you don’t like the sound of an Asian language being spoken in public, but if it’s a language like Italian or Spanish, then for you it’s ok. RACISM!
This made headlines yesterday. At the recent Cloverdale Rodeo, a fat white woman attacks an animal rights protester who happened to be East Indian or Middle Eastern. You see her unruly behaviour as she taunts the protestor with racist insults like “shit skin”. Her verbal assault escalates to physical assault, as she spits, grabs and punches the victim. This was no doubt a racially motivated attack, as she was more concerned about the protestor’s skin colour than about her views on animal rights. Yet some white people wonder why we sometimes pull the race card. How often are you white people attacked because of your race?
To the victim: If you are reading this we hope you are ok and that the RCMP will find this woman soon.
“If you weren’t white, there was some serious racism in this country [during Lee’s lifetime],” White said. “It was happening in Hollywood, too. It was hard to get parts. But not only did he break through and bring martial arts to another level on a worldwide basis, he made it the thing to do. Everybody wanted to do it, all races. It broke through because of what he was doing. Look at the way Asians were portrayed back then. They were portrayed as kind of goofy, and weak.
“And then here comes this Asian guy that every person of every color in every country around the world worshipped as the baddest dude in the world. He changed people’s way of thinking about Chinese people. Do you know how powerful that is? At a time of serious racism and the way Chinese people were looked at, he became a worldwide hero. And it wasn’t just to white kids in suburbia. White kids in the south were hanging pictures of this Chinese guy on the walls in their bedrooms. That is amazing.”

TooAsian.ca was created on Nov 23, 2010 in response to Maclean’s racist "Too Asian" article. Time and time again, publications and other media outlets continue to spread lies, bigotry, and stereotypes about Asian people. It's time to set the record straight! The blog posts you see on this site are written from an Asian perspective.
