Becky’s Language Matters

From AsianOne.Com:

A video catching a scene of raw racism against Koreans in California has catapulted Annie An, a community college student in Walnut Creek, in the East Bay area of California, to immediate online stardom.

The shocking incident took place Sunday at a local Starbucks, where Annie was having a conversation with her friend in Korean. Her Korean-American tutor, Sean Lee, was also at the scene.

Breaking off the two Korean women’s chat, a middle-aged white woman, unprovoked, suddenly told the two, “Don’t you dare say that again,” adding that she does not like to hear that language, which she thinks is “disgusting,” adding that only English should be spoken in America.=

Annie hit the record button on her smartphone.

“Some specific words she mentioned made me so mad. ‘Especially Korean,’ ‘disgusting,’ ‘Be quiet and sit down,’ ‘English only,’ and ‘immigrants,'” Annie told The Korea Herald in an interview.

Starbucks employees and three police officers escorted the woman out of the coffee joint.

“I have experienced racism on multiple counts during my stay in the US,” said Annie. “For instance, the waitress would refuse to serve me at a restaurant in a white neighborhood, or a white man would yell at me from a passing car, calling me ‘Ching Ching.'”

“But this is my first time to encounter someone who exhibited such outright sarcasm in a nonchalant, uncaring manner,” the 21-year-old said.

“We should never brush off racist remarks and actions. The more we stay quiet, the more history will ignore us. I wish more people would realise the power of immigrants, as the nation of US was built by immigrant hands.”

Annie’s video of what had been her “most unexpected and unbelievable day” of 2017 went viral via Facebook.

Annie said she has received much encouragement and support from people following her post, but not all the feedback has been positive.

“Some left aggressive comments on the video thread. Two people sent direct messages. One read, ‘You should have talked quietly. Your language sounds kinda annoying,’ and another read ‘F— off Asian,'” she said.

Annie said she believes there is much burden on immigrants to speak up in times of inequality and racial adversity.

“I am proud to be bilingual,” she said.

The affidavit stated that West came home intoxicated and realized her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend–who is black–were watching a movie which sparked the argument.

According to investigators, during the argument, West told her daughter that her baby was a N-word baby. The argument escalated when West walked over to her daughter, pulled a cover off of her and allegedly began to physically assault her; so the victim’s boyfriend intervened.

According to the victim’s boyfriend, West repeatedly shouted the N-word after he and the victim put the victim’s son to sleep.

The victim refused medical assessment at the scene.

Due to the victim’s child being present, the DCFS was notified and are now conducting its own investigation.

West remains in jail on a $5,000 bond.

Becky Takes On The BrotherHood

A Sikh lawmaker’s measured response to being heckled by a belligerent woman in Canada has impressed many. Jagmeet Singh was subjected to an aggressive and racist rant by a woman at a campaign event in Brampton, Ontario on Wednesday. He responded by saying: “We welcome you. We love you. We support you.” His supporters chanted “Love and Courage,” Mr Singh’s campaign slogan, as the woman repeatedly yelled at Mr Singh. A video of the exchange is viral.

Mr Singh is in the running to lead the left-leaning New Democratic Party, or NDP, Canada’s third largest party. A practicing Sikh, the 38-year-old politician sports a long beard, wears a turban and carries a kirpan.

In the video, a white woman aggressively invades Mr Singh’s personal space as he is getting ready to speak to a crowd of supporters during an event he calls a “JagMeet and Greet,” a community outreach programme and campaign event.

“We know you’re in bed with Sharia,” the woman, who identifies herself as “Jennifer,” begins angrily. “We know you’re in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Sharia is a system of laws in Islamic tradition. Mr Singh is, quite obviously, not Muslim.

As Mr Singh’s supporters try to calm her and keep her away from the politician, she gets even angrier and threatens to call the police.

Rather than addressing her directly, Mr Singh addresses the crowd saying: “We believe in love and courage… We don’t want to be intimidated by hate, we don’t want hatred to ruin a positive event… So let’s show people how to treat someone with love: We welcome you. We love you. We support you.”

His supporters chant “Jagmeet” and “Love and courage” and break into applause.

After ranting for a full four minutes, the woman finally storms off.

“You know growing up as a brown-skin, turbaned, bearded man that I’ve faced things like this before,” Mr Singh tells the crowd. “There’s going to be other obstacles that we’re going to face and we’re going to face them with love and courage.”

Brampton Focusa local news outlet, captured the entire exchange and posted a video of it on Facebook, where it has gone viral. The video has been watched over 4 lakh times and has been shared well over 3,000 times already.

Sometimes Becky Gotta Punch A Black Woman

Cheryl Tweedy’s spokesperson has responded to comments made by model Munroe Bergdorf about her removal from L’Oréal’s diversity-centric advertising campaign.

Munroe made headlines recently when she was fired by the beauty brand over comments she made about institutional racism, in the wake of last month’s Charlottesville protests.

Making an appearance on the BBC’s ‘Victoria Derbyshire’ show, Munroe called out L’Oréal for allowing Cheryl to continue as one of the faces of the campaign, given her assault on toilet attendant Sophie Amogbokpa in 2003.

“I shouldn’t be sacked for calling out racism when I was in a campaign that was meant to be championing diversity,” she said.

“Especially when I was speaking about the violence of white people, but they’ve got Cheryl Cole on the campaign and she was actively convicted for punching a black women in the face.”

Following her comments, a representative for the former ‘X Factor’ judge issued a statement to OK! magazine, claiming Cheryl was “disappointed” to hear her name brought into the discussion.

 

“More than 14 years ago Cheryl was unanimously acquitted of a charge of racially aggravated assault,” they said.

 

“She is disappointed to find her name involved in Munroe Bergdorf’s media interview.”

 

While Cheryl was cleared of racially aggravated assault, she was found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and was sentenced to sentenced to 120 hours of community service and ordered to pay her victim £500 in compensation.

In a statement following the court case, she said she was “thankful that the jury had accepted that this incident has nothing to do with race”.

“I’m not a racist, and anyone who knows me knows I would not say anything racist,” she added.

 

Last week, in response to being fired by L’Oréal, Munroe clarified her comments about systemic racism in a lengthy post on her Facebook, in which she insisted: “When I stated that ‘all white people are racist’, I was addressing that fact that western society as a whole, is a SYSTEM rooted in white supremacy – designed to benefit, prioritise and protect white people before anyone of any other race.

 

“Unknowingly, white people are SOCIALISED to be racist from birth onwards. It is not something genetic. No one is born racist.

“We also live in a society where men are SOCIALISED to be sexist. Women are SOCIALISED to be submissive. Gay people are SOCIALISED to be ashamed of their sexuality due to heterosexual people’s homophobia. Cisgender people are SOCIALISED to be transphobic.

 

“We do not need to be this way. We are not born this way and we can learn to reject it.”

Students Protest Becky With The BlackFace

Students refusing to sit finals after white girl posts blackface picture

It started after a white student wore a poncho on Cinco de Mayo

Students at UNH are refusing to sit finals after a scandal involving cultural appropriation, blackface, and death threats made to a sophomore.

The college has agreed to push back today’s and tomorrow’s exams amid protests over a white student who uploaded a picture of herself in blackface to Instagram.

The scandal began earlier this week, when a video circulated of a white student wearing a poncho on Cinco de Mayo, and sophomore Danique Montique took him to task.

She uploaded a status and a clip of her holding Mike to account (“I don’t care! I’m here to have fun” was his response), and was inundated with violent messages and death threats.

The latest twist came last night, when a picture was uploaded to Instagram from a white student at UNH in blackface. It was posted with an extract of her own status: “And I was forced to become the very thing society deemed me to be, angry.”

“It pissed me off,” Danique told The Tab. “It added fuel to my anger. If I was angry before, I’m pissed off now. It was infuriating but also not surprising. Instances like this and worse have happened to us students of color on campus. The other young lady in the video was spat on in the past but the student got away.”

Danique said she contacted the police to report the picture, she was met with clueless officers. “When we called the police about the pic,” she explained, “a direct quote of both responding officers was ‘what’s blackface?’ They didn’t even know what it was.”

She added 50 students of color are protesting in the lounge across from the student who posted the picture on Instagram. “We’re refusing to go to finals,” she said. “We’re walking and demanding these students be held accountable.”
