Anonymous said: Does anyone else ever feel somewhat guilty for meeting many Asian stereotypes? I'm good at math, I'm soft-spoken, I play the violin, I'm into photography, etc., but I DO NOT approve of racist shit and I don't want people commenting on these aspects about me because of my race. I just want to be who I am without people picking me apart for it, but it's so hard to combat racism when you ARE that "stereotypical Asian." Everyone will tell you you're wrong when you call them out for being racist.
Racialized stereotypes strip people of their identities.
