The term white supremacy and background!

Hi, So you know I am a big fan of wuxia and asian dramas and have many asians who are my blogger friends. I also have a few white men in a wmaf relationhsips who follow me for wuxia!

I asked a few questions to a white man in a wmaf relationship about the term white supremacy. I asked him if wmaf or amwf is white supremacy because I was kinda confused. He has a degree in history and help me clear up some stuff I’m confused about a few times.

Here’s his reply:

“No. White Supremacy is a system where white people have political, social and cultural control. It is about power and segregation. Under White Supremacy, Asians wouldn’t be able to marry whites, just like black people in the south couldn’t. In the south black men were often killed just for looking at a white woman. White Supremacy as a worldview is one that claims white people are superior to all other races due to their genetics. Almost without exception, white supremacists are opposed to interracial marriage because they believe it waters down the bloodline. This is why I keep saying it makes zero sense to frame interracial dating or marriage as contributing to white supremacy. Historically in the US it used to be illegal for interracial couples to marry. It became legal because people who didn’t like white supremacy fought against the law.”

“The other problem with invoking white supremacy that way, is it waters down the term itself. There are real racial injustices that remain from the racist policies the US used to have. But if people use it to say an asian man and women dating is a form of white supremacy (which 95% of the population will regard as a ridiculous argument) then the term starts to lose its meaning and when we talk about white supremacy in terms of things like how minorities are ore impacted by longer jail sentences or how asians might be discriminated against in the work place, people don’t listen as much because they the term has been applied to too many questionable things.”

Another wmaf had a chat with me and he told me about his background and how did he get interested in asian culture.

“I honestly don’t really care about all this racism stuff. Let me tell you about my life. My parents (white) moved from california to oklahoma shortly after they were married. They were the only white people to sit on the “black side” of the church in Oklahoma. Later they moved back to california, and were close friends with a black family. Both families had children around the same time, so my best friend growing up was black. And guess what, we shared the same first name. So for most of my young life, I didn’t even think that there was a difference between black and white people. Later, I became very interested in Asian culture. I loved Jackie Chan movies. Every week, my brother and our friends would go to eat Pho at the best vietnamese restaurant in San Diego (SD has a huge vietnamese community). Later I learned to speak Chinese. I moved to China and lived in a small city. I married a Chinese woman and now my son is Chinese/Asian. ”

So as much as I have plenty of asians who are my friends and enjoy chatting with me about wuxia and asian dramas, I also have a few white men who are fans of swordfighting movies and wuxia and follow me for that. I am grateful for those who follow me and support me out of goodwill. I have never thought of myself as an expert of asian dramas or wuxia and just an asian girl who is interested in them and watch them for fun.

Well isn’t it amazing, I used to be against asians on reddit cause I thought they were racists but some asian drama bloggers who are asians helped me explain about racism against asians and what they do is good. I eventually became good friends with asian men from reddit and became understanding toward them. We are both asians and have the same hobbies and understand each other as asians. Yeah I used to fight with a few asian drama bloggers but we became good friends due to same hobby of watching asian dramas and wuxia. Yeah despite some asians are honest but they care for me and support me. Sometimes I ask a few white men and women for opinions and they tell me “Remember I’m not asian so sometimes I don’t know how asian community feel”. Yeah wmaf would give me their opinions on it but they would tell me they are white so usually they stay out of talking about asian issues. They also tell me to be careful, there are a lot of bad guys out there too. And they said it’s always better for me to talk about it since I’m an asian girl.

Thankful of my asian blogger friends!

Thank You for being my buddies. I wouldn’t be able to have motivation to be a drama bloggger without all you wonderful asians here. I am a sensitive person myself and emotional. ❤ having you guys around. I knew some asians for being a tvb and wuxia fan and also I knew some of those asians from DramaFever. It's nice to connect with other asians and interests. Sometimes we fight and disagreed with things but we are still friends and help each other.

Was thinking of the drama blogging world how there are different cliques. Just many groups of fans. I wouldn't have survived as a drama fan and blogger without having some drama blogger friends.

Consolidation messages

You know when I get trolls a few times online for various reasons and I can’t endure it. Got some of my fellow online friends cheering me up. Here are some of the messages. Those were messages from some asian drama bloggers who cheered me up when I get troll online by both asians and non-asians. Some of these messages are about toxic asian men but some of these messages are also about white nationalist trolling me.

Some asian men who bash asian women trolling me and also white nationalist who bash asian men also troll me. Yep yep. But besides asians from reddit, I also have other asians who support me.

Isstblade is a white guy in a relationship with an asian female. Kappy, Funn Lim, and Nancyzdramaland are asian girls. Lam Dinh is an asian guy.

Some asian guys are extremist and toxic but some white nationalist are toxic too. So Yeah these are the messages.

You know I rant a lot and there’s some online friends who cheer me up.

“People like that don’t listen to reason anyway. Let them be gone from your life and don’t be affected by what they say. Stand high and tall for what you believe in. =)” -Kappy from A Virtual Voyage

“People need to live their life for their own. Stop bashing others.”-Kappy from A Virtual Voyage

“Don’t read his posts no more! Let’s start the new year refreshed and strong against trolls. :)”. – Kappy from A Virtual Voyage.

“wow, be careful, but stand up for your rights”- NancyZDramaland

“The second one you linked is troublesome. It reminds me of the rhetoric employed by the Virginia Tech killer (Korean American). Don’t mean to say this particular individual will go that direction. I’m not a psychologist or psychiatrist. Maybe he’s a teenager. Maybe he is a recluse. I wish I knew what the solution is.”- NancyZDramaland

“Yeah, it’s better to focus on real life than the online world. people are worse online when they can hid behind their computer keyboard”- Issthblade

“yeah. sometimes another tool to use on trolls is just ignore them. they want you to react, to get a rise. if you just ignore them sometimes it drives them crazy”- Issthblade

“Not racist. Just fed up. Racist was one who called be white whore something something thinking I’m white. When I said Chinese thinks I’m from China. That’s racist.Stop reading these stuff. Bad for you.”-Funn Lim

“Yea like we talked about before race will always be the cornerstone of everything”- Lam Dinh

“As you get more and more followers over time, there will be more and more trolls. You definitely have to ignore or even block them. Just be confident in yourself and ignore people like that who are so negative”- Isstblade.

“I don’t know why people like to spread hate so much! Just remove them from your life! =)”- Kappy from A Virtual Voyage

So Thank You my friends for cheering me up with these messages!

Asian men are toxic: Think about it again!

As an asian girl, of course I have to care for asian guys too for asian community. So I was thinking of asian reddit and how it’s hard to achieve asian unity between asian men and women. I am an asian woman and sometimes I do get turned off by the bashing of asian women but we must also understand that asian guys have gone through tough times in their life. Put in your shoes of asian guys and you’ll see how tough it is when there are stereotypes of asian men. Esther Ku spreading those stereotypes doesn’t help asian community either though some asians do support her.

So I received a few messages from some asian girls that they sometimes don’t agree with the asian guys on reddit or scared of sharing their opinions because they support some of those asian women that the guys bash. Me too, I don’t agree with some of the asians on reddit but that doesn’t mean what they are doing is bad. They are fighting for asians aand against racism. Besides of the relationship topics, there are also other important topics about racism against asians. Asian reddits tend to focus a lot on the relationship topics and that can alienate us asians.

What i’ve noticed about asian men who bashes asian women is

-They misinterpreted the tweet of the asian women and the situation. Everyone have different situations during the day that made them angry or say that kind of tweet.

– They saw a tweet of asian women dating white men and misunderstood that they are white worshipers, I mean maybe the asian woman may just casually date a white guy or truly love that man.

-Extremist who hate all asian women.

What I’ve noticed about asian women who bashes asian men is

-Got bashed by a few asian men and put the blame on all asian men.

-Family was too strict so they hate asian men.

-Don’t let asian men control them or just don’t like asian men.

I feel like it’s hard to achieve asian unity with asian men and asian women bashing each other back and forth.

I have a few suggestions:

-Asian men and women should understand each other more.

– Asian women should support asian men but asian men should also support asian women.

-Asian men be careful of generalization of all asian women and be careful of which asian woman you bash.

-Asian women don’t put all the blame for asian men. There are good and bad asian men out there.

I don’t have an asian reddit but just want to give some suggestions of asian unity.

Asians you can ignore other asians you don’t agree with and hang out with asians you agree with. There are different asian cliques out there. There will be one for you. That’s how there are different asian reddits.

You can comment any suggestion you want!

❤ Jac!

Just frustrated

I have to confessed these past few weeks haven’t been really good for me. I just want some time alone for the moment. Chill and watch some asian dramas and relax. So much stuff happens in real life. Everyone have their own business to take care off. I admit for online dramas there’s different views between asian aryanism and asian reddit. I don’t have a reddit but I do support asian community. I’ll have to say though I don’t really agree with what asians on reddit do but I still support asian community because I’m asian of course. Though some of the guys are toxic, there are a lot of cool asian guys and girls too. I haven’t really met any self haters in real life except on asian reddit and twitter when the guys talk about it. Mostly because most of the asians I chat with are asians who hang out with mostly asians or support other asians.

In real life and online, it depends on the asians. I don’t get along with all asians only some asians. I basically hang out with anyone I get along with.

I’ll have to say I’m grateful of my wuxia blogger friend NancyZdramaland for caring for me and deal with me to pay me to do some graphic design for her blog and I can post it on my portfolio. I said she doesn’t have to pay me since I don’t want to use her but I’m willing to do it for free for her.

I’ll still drama blog from time to time cause I would like to cover more classic old wuxia series.

Anyway I just want to chill at the moment. Just have so much stuff to take care and go through.

❤ Jac.
