Love this post. I believe, just as he does, that words only have power over you if you let them. You can call me whatever the hell you want and I'll let it roll off my shoulder. Oh, and you better be prepared for a verbal response where NOTHING is off limits.

When I was a little kid I wore Harley Davidson and Richard Petty clothing with cowboy boots. I never really knew I was Asian until the jokes came... “Ching Chong” - “Bruce Lee” - “Jackie Chan” you know the standard racist shit. The thing about Asians is we’re resilient, and pretty thick skinned to racism. My mom use to tell it didn’t matter because I was smarter than that, my dad use to tell me stand up for myself. The reality is, all the names and jokes never defined me-oooh I’m good at math (I’m not), oooh I like dogs (I do-not to eat), oooh you’re smart (Koreans as a race are), you think you’re superior because your Asian (we are), so yea will people be people, fucked up and mean... yea, absolutely. Just don’t let it affect the positive person you are, don’t be a victim, don’t be resentful, just let it ride off your shoulders, hell we all need to lighten up and realize our differences is what makes us great, and making fun of ourselves every once in a while is ok. Iraq Sniper Muhammad being a racist fuck and telling me to open my eyes, I told him of course I would of let me borrow his 🐪 for the weekend. @ibraheem_alnoaimy_tj @almhmdaway #funcraft #asian #koreanguy #chinese #japanese #dirtyknees #lookatthese
