Vietnamese Pride

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 27, 2007

On the blog Ethnically Incorrect Daughter sume blogs about being a Vietnamese American adoptee:

You might be Vietnamese American adoptee if…
you feel uncomfortable around other Vietnamese.
you grew up thinking Phúc was a dirty word.
you ate phở before you could properly pronounce it.
you thought you were white before other kids called you “gook”.
dumbshits ever suggested your Vietnamese mom might have been a prostitute.
other Vietnamese looked at you funny when you tried to speak Vietnamese.
neighbors looked accusingly at you when their dogs went missing.

Mixed Race Movement

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 27, 2007

Marco Hewitt blogs about his discovery of a mixed race movement in the United States:

Since I’ve been here in the US, I’ve discovered that there is actually a Mixed Race movement here. Wow! I was so impressed when I first heard about it. We need that shit in Australia. I would love for there to be a forum where mixed race youths can get together and discuss their identities, and bring their unique subjectivities into the realm of grassroots activism.

Inter-Ethnic Conflict

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 27, 2007

Rage raises interesting points on interracial dialogue in response to an article in Asian Week titled “Why I Hate Black People:”

If we really care to show that we believe in the strength and importance of the African American community, we should be advancing political and social agendas that embrace zero compromise on education reform that really focuses on making sure that the education gap for African American and other children disappears… And on the flip side, why is it that immigration is not a civil or human rights issue for the majority of the African American civil rights community? Why don’t they really touch the issue, really relegating it to the Latino and Asian communities? And why don’t we say how much we owe Latino communities for their fight against national origin and language discrimination in this country?
