Exciting Photo Illusions
The swimming pool temporarily effed me up..
Screenshots from the Sa-I-Gu documentary, produced by Christine Choy, Elaine Kim, and Dai Sil Kim-Gibson, about the aftermath of the LA Riots, from the perspectives of Korean immigrant women. Subtitles pictured are the documentary’s translations of Korean.
It was hard for me to watch the pain and anger of these women, who are being interviewed as they begin to deal with what happened to their lives. There is an overwhelming sense of resentment towards American society as a whole, and some express ignorance and anger against the black people they saw as their victimizers during the riots (the directors address the racism and their choice to document it at the end). However, considering that the government and media have just demonstrated beyond doubt that they are only there to protect rich white communities, most of these women seem to sympathize with the suffering of black and poor people in their shared city, and seem to have gained a very clear analysis of institutional racism and the media’s role in it all. They have just seen the undeniable truth that, no matter how hard they work and sacrifice, they will still be expendable. What I have sensed from older generations of Koreans in LA, including my parents, is a desire to forget, because they were never given justice or any real answers, after their small, newly arrived community was burned to the ground, forced to become such a central player in the American racist legacy beyond their understanding.

i don’t want to be a part of a college system where plagiarism is a worse crime than rape
casual racism includes:
the way people trivialize black women so much to the point where fat black women are constantly the subject of gifs and nobody will admit that it’s because they enjoy the stereotype of the “big black ghetto woman” doing something like “ahh praise da lawd” or “ohh babe” or some shit like that
the fact that this got no notes speaks volumes about how in denial you people are
