I'm a bit late, but think I'm going to talk about the issue going viral about now, "White Girl Hate Asian (Racist rant video)", just for the sake of argument.
You might have heard about the video earlier and how popular it become (check out the video below if you haven't).
It was about one white girl from UCLA talk about how Asian are (in her opinion). First of all, if you don't already know, 'I am Asian' and seriously, I am proud of the fact (everyone should be proud of who they are and where they come from.. seriously). For that reason, I am not at all offended by the video (not that what she did wasn't wrong, IT WAS WRONG and I personally think it wasn't necessary at all). Second of all, from life experience, people that do or say things like that, they have their own 'personal' issues stem from at least 1 out of 2 major reasons;
If you ask me, I'd say I feel sorry for her. Simply because there're certain things in life you just don't do. Certain things that once you made happen, it is just impossible to undo. But hey.. there's also something they call 'forgiveness' and I think it's worthwhile to think about. Not because the person deserve it, but because you want to free yourself from being part of something ugly. Besides, we don't want to get carried away and countering hate with more hate, do we?
Below is a video response I think is very insightful it helps explain why certain remarks and criticism are made, and what is actually going on in the person's mind.
We all know there're differences in this world, and that is exactly what makes this life of ours not that boring.
