I repeat: these stereotypes are dangerous. Reducing Asian women into a sexual object is not funny, it is not flattering. It is perilous. We can see this when Asian women are subject to race-targeted sexual violence. The racist nature of the crimes go unrecognized and unpunished, as if there is nothing wrong with choosing a rape victim because she is Asian.

In Spokane, Washington, two white men and a woman specifically hunted random Japanese women in an elaborately planned scheme to kidnap, rape, sodomize, torture and videotape them. Their motivation? According to police reports, the rapists had a sexual “fantasy” and “fixation” about young Japanese women, who they believed were “submissive.” (The very same beliefs so blatantly bandied about by Gawker and some of its readers.)

During a one month period in Autumn 2000, the predators abducted five Japanese exchange students, ranging from age 18 to 20. Motivated by their sexual biases about Asian women, all three used both their bodies and objects to repeatedly rape - vaginally, anally and orally — two of the young women over a seven hour ordeal.

In Spokane, one of the attackers immediately confessed to searching only for Japanese women to torture and rape — and eventually all pled guilty and were convicted. It clearly was a racially-motivated criminal case. The victims also believed they were attacked because of their race, the prosecutor told me.

What is astonishing, however, is that the district attorney failed to bring an additional charge that would have tagged the crimes as motivated by racial bias. The police also neglected to report the crime as a “hate crime,” as demanded by the Justice Department to keep accurate statistics of all bias-driven crimes. Although the attackers all received long sentences, an important opportunity to raise the nation’s consciousness was lost. We, as a society, were told that it’s not a hate crime to rape an Asian woman because of her race.

Man, so this is hilarious but also really painful. How many POC can recall bringing their own ethnic food to school for lunch and getting made fun of? There was no way in hell I wanted to be caught eating Mexican left overs at school and my mom remembers feeling ashamed bringing tacos for lunch. This type of shame and internalized racism hits deeeep.

I assure you this happens if a white kid going to a majority non white school brings food they haven’t seen. It’s not racism, it’s kids being shitty to anyone different which is the norm for kids in general. In middle school I got made fun of for my clothes by white and black kids. Because that’s what kids do. They find someone doing something different and act like assholes to them. It has nothing to do with race. Playing the race card POC victim shit here is really pathetic.

thank u for ur unnecessary white man opinion
