Blame the White man
What you want everyone to divert their attention to the Korean store owners and loot them instead? While the president of the U.S (A White man I may add, just the plain truth)
sends out more colored people to die in HIS war?
I am sorry if i offend any White people in here but, do you ever stop to think how Blacks/Latinos/Asians/Natives/Middle Easterners feel in a society like North America?
Do you as White people think everything is a-okay and that everything is revolved around you because
of the way the silly media portrays White as beautiful, courageous, humorous, etc etc while portraying
the rest of the world as less significant???
Since when does colour make someone greedy? Ive always thought Bush was a yahoo, and knew he was greedy he wanted that oil and has already sent alot of white people to hold it for him.
The media portrays black people as normal, courageous, beautiful and humorous people too, but i dont spend 14hrs a day at a TV or computer so i dont know for sure.
Ive seen alot of the coverage on the american channel CNN about the war in iraq. And from seeing all the troops in army gear the majority of the people fighting are white, ive seen black people also, but not as many as the white people
I dont know what other ethicities think, but if u choose to live here you and i owe a service to our respective countries when it is required. Whether its to go to war or volunteer for a relief effort.
My whole point is,
If you look at all the past presidents of the United States of America, what were and are their skin colors?
White! When was the last time you saw a Black/Yellow/Brown/Red president in America?
And yet they try to tell us how important it is for US to vote. They want us to "make a difference" by voting but, for what? When we claim multicultural society and all that crap, we have nothing to show for it when it comes to the people in power who create the laws of the land, the political structures, the education systems, etc etc. And what is the point of even voting when there are suggestions that a lot of the "votes" are rigged?
Do you really think George W Bush has his heart and interest in the residents of Compton, Long Beach, South Central, Brooklyn, etc etc? Please!
And if you tell me Con Rice is a person of color in office, just remember the difference between a PAWN and a KING. You figure who is the KING and who is the PAWN; George W Bush and his fellow White politicians, or Con Rice, Colin Powell and people like them. Who really really calls the shots?
And as for the "positive" (if you want to call them that) stereotypes put on Blacks, Asians, and others, they really are not positive at all.
When the world see's Blacks only good at is stuff like Basketball, rapping, dancing, it limits the worlds perception on the variety of potential different Black people can achieve. Just like how people only assume Asians are only good at math, computers, and anything non physical or art/music related. So when you have a person like Jin
coming out rapping/freestyling everyone is shocked and in awe of his progress and sometimes label him a gimmick cuz he's CHINESE. Or when Yao Ming first showed his face in the NBA, a lot of people i came across were amazed that a Chinese person could play ball! Even some fellow NBA players were upset and threw racial slurs at Yao (hey Shaq, racist clown!).
I personally know there is sooooo much variety within the Black COMMUNITIES, Asian COMMUNITIES, Hispanic COMMUNITIES, ETC ETC.
I have seen Black guys/girls good at math, science, computers, I have witnessed Asian guys/girls good at dancing, rapping, singing (nooooooo William Hung is not the face of ALL Asians who sing), boxing/fighting (Pacquiao), I have seen Hispanics who are amazing in martial arts, computers, etc.
So it pisses me off when people make silly comments like "Man David Nguyen is good at computers cuz he was born an Asian" or "Did you see how Jerome beat up that White dude? See I told you Blacks are so strong, tough and violent!". It really pisses me off when I hear comments like that. Cuz I have also met many Asians who stink at computers or Black dudes who can't fight.
But where do people get all these perceived "positive" stereotypes? The media systems of North America!
Done my rant for now.
Once you see the bigger picture, it all makes sense we are screwed in the Land of the "free" plus our children, and our childrens children. Until the end of time.
