"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media.

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.

I went to the Indian food store today with my mom and I stumbled upon these, among a dozen other skin whitening products marketed towards both men and women. I’ve always known Fair and Lovely is a thing but Fair and Teens, a skin whitening product targeted specifically at young girls, makes me so so sad. That image alone comparing the before and after images of skin tone is so sickening to me and only perpetuates the shadism desi people experience every day in an effort to look as white as possible because apparently the only way to be beautiful is to be white. It just makes me so angry that products like this exist and that they’re indirectly responsible for a lot of young brown girls internalized hatred for their skin and their race. Speaking as someone that’s been there, please don’t fall into this trap. Your skin is beautiful no matter how dark or light it is.
