Racism in brunei
YO, this is disgusting as fuck. As a Muslim, I was taught to fight for justice for everybody and to protect every person from any form of oppression regardless of their religion, ability, or gender. I was never told—in my reading of religious text—to only save Muslims. Islam has taught me kindness and cooperation with others. It has taught me peace not just with myself, but with others. Islam never taught people that democracy is wrong or elections is not a part of Islamic political system. Islam never taught people that political representation should only be from Muslims. Whoever has been telling you that is feeding you lies and would rather numb you than allow you to participate because being Muslim means being actively engaged.
What the person on the picture is saying that their values is one that is spineless and lazy, and that the status quo is benefiting them the most; hence, speaking for it with the blind eye is the right thing to do—because the government rubbed my back, so you should rub the government’s penis back, right?
Also, Malay-Muslims are not first class citizens in Brunei. They are second class citizens too. Everyone is second class.
Exactly ! Even my muslim friends said that but most of the elder generations here are fucked up. The elder generations actually WANT to stone the gays and think that the other religions should get out of brunei. There was one comment that said “chinese people should shut up and accept the syariah law or else they’ll kidnap the chinese minister in Brunei and burn him.” LIKE WHAT. I even had a teacher that told me to keep my mouth shut if I didn’t agree with Brunei and to just get out of Brunei and return back to China. Cause I’m chinese. I’M A CITIZEN TO BRUNEI. I’ve never even been to China. I just hope that the next generation, my generation, will be better than the last :(. So far my friends are really awesome they’re really nice and understanding. :)
Also racism and bad grammar go well together
I remember my deeply visceral response–literally feeling like throwing up–when I first came across posts like these on various Facebook pages. I have since then developed a somewhat tougher exterior against such personalized prejudice, but only because I had to. The truth is the hurt that arises from this kind of hatred is always fresh and always potent–and I suspect this will be the case for the longest time–so if I had not will myself against the barrage (yes, barrage) of hateful viewpoints, I would be crushed long ago.
In retrospect, my nausea at my first-ever-seen clearly-articulated written statement of my status as beneath my Malay brothers and sisters is silly in a sense. The thing is: I have always known. I have been raised up to believe I am indeed a second-class citizen, and to accept this fact, and nobody even had to say a word about this to me. It was clear from my process of growing up, from my day-to-day routines and interactions, from all my life, that I, for one reason or the other, simply have less rights than the Malay everyman/woman. Legislated rights and rights beyond the scope of law both.
I have learned that more people than I had ever imagined harbor ideas like those pictured above. Social media is amazing and devastating in this regard. Common extension of the discrimination: “If you don’t like it here, leave.” If I have days, I could point out the logical flaws and practical stupidity of the ideas pictured above or the rather ubiquitous demand for unhappy non-Malays to leave the country. I do not have days however, and will only point out that even more worrying than the lack of rationality among certain Bruneians is the lack of empathy and kindness and humanity. I pray for our survival.
White American men are sociopaths.
and this is why i aint here for this movie
Same exactly why I didn’t go see it
Movies that demonize any culture like that get the same reaction every fucking time.
It honestly wasn’t even a good movie, besides.
OOOOOOooo BOY alright
american sniper is about Chris Kyle
Chris Kyle was the most lethal sniper in US history
- He killed over 200 people singlehandedly
- In his book, Kyle clearly states that he thought the enemies were savages and despicably evil
- he thought killing was “fun”
- “I couldn’t give a flying fuck about the Iraqis.”
- He stated he regrets that he didn’t kill more people
- Kyle was a hate filled KILLER
- “ much of the US right wing appears to have seized upon Sniper with similarly shallow comprehension – treating it with the same unconsidered, rah-rah reverence that they would the national anthem or the flag itself. Only a few weeks into its release, the film has been flattened into a symbol to serve the interests of an ideology that, arguably, runs counter to the ethos of the film itself. ” eastwood let this happen. he painted the film in grey. IT WASNT GREY. ITS WRONG. CHRIS KYLE WAS WRONG. HE SHOULD HAVE PORTRAYED THAT CLEAR AS DAY. HE DECIDED NOT TO.
- bottomline he killed women, children, and men and is being fucking defended
this film is making people do this (WARNING:OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE, VIOLENCE, HATE TOWARDS THE MIDDLE EAST)
- see this post
- “When he was criticized bySpike Lee a few years ago, his response was to tell an interviewer that Lee should just “shut his face.” Why engage with the substance of some younger, darker punk’s critique, when you can just deny his right to utter it?”
- watch clint eastwoods speech talking downward to an “invisible obama” treating him like a child
also lazy ass filmmaking
- THAT FAKE BABY. I KNOW THIS ISNT IMPORTANT BC THE THINGS ABOVE WHAT IVE SAID. BUT. COMEON. THEY COULDA GOT A REAL BABY. i have a theory tht all the babies they tried to bring on set wouldnt stop crying bc they didnt want to be in this awful eastwood movie so they gave up on using a REAL CHILD.
all this stuff can be googled to support what I’ve said. American Sniper should not win a single thing and Clint should Stop and Go Away.
******People need to realize that you CAN support your country while thinking critically about its actions and its citizenry

Black Teen With White Parents Mistaken For Burglar, Assaulted By Cops In His Own Home
‘Put your hands on the door, I was like, ‘For what? This is my house.’ Police pointed at photos of white people hanging on the wall and told him that he was lying.
A North Carolina teen was recently assaulted and pepper sprayed by police in his own home, after he was mistaken for a burglar. 18-year-old DeShawn Currie has been living with foster parents Ricky and Stacy Tyler in Wake County, North Carolina for about a year.
The Tylers love DeShawn as their own son and they have taken him into their home, in hopes to provide him the safe and loving environment that he needs to thrive in the most important years of his life.
Unfortunately, some of the Tyler’s neighbors were not familiar with the family dynamics of the home, and decided to call the police to report a burglary when they saw the young man entering his home after school one day. DeShawn did not climb through a window or struggle to get inside, but simply walked through the unlocked door of the home. The only thing that actually made his neighbors suspicious, was the color of his skin.
When police arrived on the scene they treated DeShawn like a criminal without asking any questions.
“They was like, ‘Put your hands on the door, I was like, ‘For what? This is my house.’ I was like, ‘Why are y’all in here?” DeShawn said in an interview.
When DeShawn asked the officers why they were in his home, they pointed at photos of white people hanging on the wall and told him that he was lying.
“I’m feeling comfortable, I had moved into my room, and I’m feeling like I’m loved. And then when they come in and they just profile me and say that I’m not who I am. And that I do not stay here because there was white kids on the wall, that really made me mad,” DeShawn later told reporters.
During the entire altercation, police were shouting profanity at the young man, and pointing multiple guns at his face. When DeShawn stood firm and insisted that he was in fact in his own home, police attacked him with pepper spray.
When Stacy Tyler came home from work she saw her son DeShawn in the driveway being treated by paramedics for the injuries that police had inflicted.
“My 5-year-old last night, she looked at me and said, ‘Mama I don’t understand why they hated our brother, and they had to come in and hurt him,” Stacy Tyler told reporters.
“Everything that we’ve worked so hard for in the past years was stripped away yesterday in just a matter of moments,” father Ricky Tyler added.
The police department has defended their actions, saying that that DeShawn did not obey the officer’s orders to the letter, despite the fact that they were intruders in his home and had no right to be there barking orders at him.
Now this is something to bring attention to.
This is disgusting.
After seeing several submissions from fellow Filipinos, I thought I’d share my own experience growing up Filipino in America. Some of this may become ranty and incoherent, but hopefully I can reach those of you who have experienced something similar or at least can relate.
I remember when a Korean-American classmate in my orchestra class asked from what country in Asia my family came from. Of course, I said that I’m from the Philippines.
Lo and behold! His treatment of me changed from pleasant to utmost disdain. At the time, I did not understand why he suddenly didn’t want to interact with me anymore.
You see, back then (this was when I as 14/15 years old), I was very naïve and I thought Filipinos are just as Asian as all other Asians. I thought this way because both my parents instilled in me that we ARE Asians because of language, cultural, and political influence.
I did not know about the unspoken hierarchy that Filipinos were at the bottom of the Asian Hierarchy. Or were seen as “the wrong kind of Asian.”
And so, I wanted to really make friends with the other Asians at school, but I was often frustrated and ended up becoming a loner because I was often told these things:
“You’re too dark to be Asian.”
“You’re Pacific Islander because Philippines is an archipelago.”
“Your people do not have a clear cultural identity.”
“Filipinos are ‘Hispanic’ because they were colonized by Spain.”
Well, it did not end there. The worst part was when it came to dating and I saw my Asian-American schoolmates dating fellow Asians (most of the ones who dated their fellow Asian Americans were the pale-skinned ones) and/or white people.
I thought, “If they can date other Asians or white people, so can I!”
I was wrong.
So very wrong.
As a matter of fact, these guys, whether they were white or Asian American, won’t even look at me or see me as someone attractive, interesting, funny, and intelligent because all they saw is this dark-skinned girl from the Philippines.
At first, I couldn’t articulate why I was always felt so frustrated and dismissed or just seen as a place holder until they get their “Dream Asian Girl.”
Japanese girls were always at the top. Chinese and Korean girls were always a close second.
But I noticed Filipino girls were always some kind of “consolation prize” for these guys who can’t get a girl from the “East Asian Trifecta.”
Then it dawned on me that this is happening because I’m the “wrong” kind of Asian. I do not belong in the hierarchy that was established by whatever powers that may be out there.
I completely resented it. And for the longest time, I hated being Filipino because my heritage is always the butt of jokes!
That routine from Donald Glover didn’t help:http://thisisnotpinoy.tumblr.com/post/32867024237
What Lucy Liu said on the David Letterman Showhttp://youtu.be/s5NCE71wV5s didn’t help.
Why is being Filipino such a bad thing? Why is having a deep tan such a bad thing?
Why is having dark skin disqualifies Filipinos from being Asian?
Why is it so bad? Why do people hate us so much? Why do people not want us?
Even our own selves; we hate ourselves.
Growing up in the Philippines, the media that I saw had fair-skinned movie stars, news casters, and models. There were some dark-skinned actresses but they were few and far in between or they’re often type-casted as the punchline for the fair-skinned protagonist.
Then there’s an abundance of skin whitening products! How can we escape from this madness when we are deeply mired by our own self-hate?
I even hate myself to the point where I do not go outside in the sun, slather SPF100 and wear big sun hats so that I won’t become “too dark.” I am also very guilty of being flattered when relatives tell me “Oh, you’ve become so fair-skinned, you’re so pretty!”
I’m a full-grown woman now but I still find myself being petty about not disclosing my cultural background to people and doing my best to look East Asian as much as possible.
And going back to interacting with white people, they just see Filipinos as “good servants.” Is that how we all are? We just exist to merely serve?
I’ve encountered the question “No, where are you REALLY from?” followed up by a mangled version of some Tagalog phrase they try to use on me to impress me?!
Oh, here’s another “classic” pick up line from white men. They’d tell me they were stationed in the Philippines for quite a few years and talk about how the hospitality of the people and how “docile and submissive” Filipino women are. Then they would even go as far as talk about how they were offered a Filipino bride to take home to America!
That truly annoys me to the Nth degree!
It’s really irritating, frustrating, and tiring battling my own self-hate, discrimination from white people, and then discrimination from fellow Asians.
It is really complicated, being Filipino. I see myself and identify myself as an autonomous Human Being and yet I am always reduced to a caricature of my culture and heritage—not just by other people, but by my own self, too.
It’s not just Southeast Asians being discriminated by East Asians.
Sometimes among Southeast Asians themselves. I’ve seen Singaporeans, Malaysians, Indonesians and Bruneians constantly looking down upon each other and making racist remarks at each other, behind their backs or publicly online. Sad to see Southeast Asians themselves still hate people that are “the other kind of southeast asian”.
That's the spirit. Just ignore something that you think shouldn't exist and focus on what's more important, like apple juice :D
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
one time a boy tried to pull my hijab off
i punched him in the face
closed fist, short swing, right in the jaw
there is a point where you stop trying to educate people and start making the consequences of their racist bullshit real fuckin clear.
Remember how Teen Titans had a lesson about Racism without blatantly bringing Cyborg’s Race into it?
Teen Titans was one of the most important parts of my childhood
This show is responsible for a lot of my understanding of life.
More of this Cartoon network, bring it back.
“Do I get stress headaches at work? Yes, definitely. From the moment I get in, it’s “Denise we need this! Denise we need that!” Which is stressful… ‘cause my name is Linda. Denise is the other black woman that works here. By 10am, someone in the copy room makes a joke about Kobe Bryant, and everyone looks at me to make sure it’s ok. And I smile like it’s ok. But really, my head and neck are starting to throb. Then I spend the rest of my afternoon training my interns, and answering their questions, like, “Yes, black people use shampoo”, and, “No, I don’t know any good reggae clubs around here”, and, “Yes, Condoleezza Rice is very articulate, why do you sound so surprised?” And, “No, I can’t tell you where to buy weed!” And that’s when I reach for Excedrin.”
“Save the Pearls” is a vanity published YA novel trying to bill itself as the next “The Hunger Games.” The publisher says that “‘Save the Pearls turns the tables on racism.’”
It uses blackface as a plot device.
In author Victoria Foyt’s futuristic world, no one wants to mate with white people—or “pearls”—considered to be the ugliest humans oppressed by people of color. In order to survive, they must put on blackface make up to be attractive to the ruling class of “coals.” Hoyt explains: “their stunningly dark skin that carries the greatest amount of melanin…makes them the strongest, most powerful race alive.” The protagonist is a white girl who must smear her face with “midnight luster” make up in order to protect herself from radiation and in order to look beautiful to the oppressive “coals” in hopes that they will mate with her.
The rule in Eden’s post-apocalyptic world is: the darker the skin, the higher the mate-rate. Other factors calculated into one’s mate-rate include wealth or employment status. For example, Ronson Bramford, a handsome Coal titan of industry, is at the top of the heap with a mate rate of 98%. At age twenty-two, he only has two years left in which to mate—or else he’d probably have a 100% mate-rate. Tiger’s-Eyes, or Latinos, usually rate above Ambers, or Asians, in the future race wars. White-skinned Pearls offer little resistance to The Heat, and therefore, are at the bottom. Only a Cotton, or Albino, would be lower.”
THE MIND IT BOGGLES.
wow we can only care about racial oppression when it’s about white people
it’s not like there aren’t already people who believe that reverse racism is a real thing or anything
not like the story of racial oppression is more complex than a difference in populace and biological differences.
You know how they say that homophobia/heterosexism is just this fear that “men will treat you the way you treat women” and anti-feminism is fear that “women will treat you the way men have treated them”? This is kind of like that, right, this fear that people of color will treat you like how white people have treated them without any real reflection on what privilege means.
“TURNS THE TABLES ON RACISM”
The claim: “TURNS THE TABLES ON RACISM”
The reality: No it doesn’t.
If you’ll notice:
|*| White ppl? Pearls - A pretty precious/semi-precious gem
|*| Asian ppl? Ambers - Another pretty semi-precious gem
|*| Latin@s? Tiger-eyes - Another pretty semi-precious gem. One striped w/ dark and light.
|*| Black folk? Coals - Something to be used; something which pollutes, something that rubs off on you, something not precious.
And yes, I did this list in this order on purpose. It’s the author’s chosen names, I only organized it according to current valuing of the materials.Turns the tables on racism my left tit. All this story does is expose the writer’s racism in stark, honking, stinking relief and their belief that anyone in the minority SHOULD be doing everything possible to appeal to the majority and fit in with them.
I’m not even touching a world full of PoC who’re obsessed with mating at an early/young age. Someone else can deal with that. My blood pressure says no.
Also there’s this, fromHuffingtonpost(always trust Huffingtonpost to bring the RaceFail)“Conceivably, if the book had not reached the African-American community of readers, if such a category still exists, perhaps there might be some backlash. The first young African American reader who responded to me loved the book. But then, she’s the kind of free spirit who would eschew limiting herself to a single category.Or perhaps — and this is what I hope — the YA generation sees race in a way that is unique to them, unique in our history. After all, they have arrived on the scene decades past the integration of schools and Jim Crow, even well past the days of The Cosby Show.Soap-mouth-washing words that were forbidden in my youth now populate rap songs so often I wonder if, happily, they have lost their vile connotations.”
I repeat; this white woman is failing hard. Crap, I’m going to end up having to do a proper post on this bullshit on my regular blog. ‘African-American community of readers, if such a category still exists’? That’s some Louis McMaster Bujold shite right there. Along with this - ’ free spirit who would eschew limiting herself to a single category’ - ie if Black readers DO exist, they’re not often reading SciFi/Speculative Fiction type things. All followed up by ‘It looks soon like I’ll get to say the n-word!’
ETA: People keep mentioning what else the terms could be. But I think wanting to use the terms as is was the author’s original intent. Cause seriously - off the top of my flipping head?
Glass. Glass ass. Sun goes right through white people like glass. Meanwhile you’ve got Jets (seriously, between the terms Jetset and Jet magazine and the jewel Jet, makes so much sense for an culturally and economically dominant group). But all that requires not being a racist ass.
And before people even get into Crosses and Noughts? Do not forget there’s BEEN a book about what if Europe had it’s own people hunting in their small towns, selling them off to rich African tribes people and slavery had gone the other way. I forget the name right now. It was a British author, I believe. But even though it wasn’t the best, it at least thought about things like culture, appearance, beauty standards, being owned and thus controlled by a child, forced impregnation, the selling off of one’s children and the like.
I am just full of sputtering confusion and rage.
Jesus fuck. This is the kind of shit well-meaning white sixth graders write for homework and then wince over for the rest of their lives
here’s some more context/information
it only gets worse, holy shit
"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
