Destiny, 15, Korean and Black
Tired of white people immediately thinking I’m either Chinese or Japanese (no disrespect to Chinese or Japanese girls, but pick up a map white people, Asia has more than two countries)
Tired of hearing “You don’t even act Asian.”, “No, where are you really from?”, “I bet you like anime.”, “Do you speak Asian?”, “So like is it true you guys eat cats?” and my favorite “I only date Asian girls. You’re all so exotic and oriental.”

Half Chinese, 1/4 Jamaican, 1/4 Cuban"Oh you’re half Asian?? You could never tell!!”" Omgosh that you did right there haha, that’s your Asian side coming out~"" There are so many Chinese people living here… I feel like a minority. You understand me right?" - White personFirstly never judge a book by its cover. “I understand you” because I look black right? I get it, I don’t look completely Asian, of course not. I’m only half. But. I really don’t like it when people dismiss other parts of who I am. Or diss it. Yes i’m a minority, but I never send out hate into the world because of it? I’m actually relatively fortunate not to have experienced too much racism where I live. I’ve felt accepted and loved for who I am and i’m grateful.
Do not ever ignore the fact that racism is still out there though.
It exists. I know it does. And I’ve seen so many people- including myself- getting hurt because of people constantly attacking at the very core of who they are. We Asian girls be angry yo. Sorry, but we’ve earned the right to be.

Half Japanese | Half Irish
I’m the palest of my sibbilings, can’t tan one bit, got my mother’s skin freckles and all. As a child I had no contact with my mother’s side of the family, so growing up I though I was full Japanese. During grade school people didn’t know my actual race but I had a funny name (Mariko but I don’t go by it anymore cause of all the negative memories I have associated with it) and what they called “pancake face” so they knew I wasn’t like them I guess.
As I grew up I started experimenting with my hair colour, went blonde for awhile and people started treating me different. Realizing the only tie I had to my own fricking culture/race was my dark thick hair? People would ask why I’m with some Asian man in public when out with my father, like they didn’t recognize that I was his child.
Now that I’m an adult I realize I can’t help that the genetic roll of the dice gave me my mother’s skin tone, and to just embrace it. But still to this day I get the occasional comment/question of “no offense but what are you?” Or “you don’t look white?” But I guess we have to deal, thats the curse of being biracial.

16 years ago I learnt that I was different.
15 years ago more kids confirmed my suspicions. Being different is bad!
13 years ago they started spitting on me. I was too embarrassed to tell my mother. I didn’t want to be Chinese.
8 years ago I had a fresh start, but was still too different.
6 years ago I got into skin bleaching; I didn’t want to be different anymore. I was one of 4 PoC in my grade of 300.
3 years ago I had one more fresh start. I had a chance to truly develop; I started to change a lot.
2 years ago was when I started to realise that I will always be “different”, but with the environment I was in, it wasn’t so absurd.
1 year ago I realised that I desperately want to change social norms in Western Societies that exclude PoC from “the norm”. I started to love my Chinese side and wished I never succumbed to thinking I had to live up to European beauty standards.
Now I write/draw comics, teach people, and speak up about these issues. 
I wish I didn’t have to go through hating my Chinese heritage, but I don’t think I would be as strong as I am now without it. I want to help PoC realise their worth isn’t judged by bigots. 
I am proud to be Chinese, and I want to encourage that in those going through it alone. Western Societies don’t exactly support WoC.

Shazz, Indian Tamil
Used to deal with internalized racism when I was younger. Took a trip to India realised that my culture was nothing to be ashamed and have been proud of it since.
I had a friend tell me I wasn’t approachable looking, still regard it as the best compliment. 
Hope I’m not too late to join in the self-love fun! Keep doing what your doing girls cause if looks could kill all these bigots would have been dead by now <3

Because every time someone asks me &#8220;what are you?&#8221; I have to go in depth and explain colonization to them (always SUCH fun)"Where&#8217;s Guyana?" Oh it&#8217;s in South America. "Oh so you&#8217;re like&#8230; Brazilian?" What. No. I&#8217;m like, Indian. Kinda. Might be more who knows."What language do you speak at home?" English. Just. English. Thanks Britain, I can&#8217;t even understand my own prayers but apparently I&#8217;m supposed to understand all the bible references in American media.  Shoutout to those peeps that don&#8217;t consider South Asians to be &#8220;real&#8221; Asians though and to those peeps that don&#8217;t even consider me to be a &#8220;real&#8221; South Asian

"Where’s Guyana?" Oh it’s in South America. 

"Oh so you’re like… Brazilian?" What. No. I’m like, Indian. Kinda. Might be more who knows.

"What language do you speak at home?" English. Just. English. 

Thanks Britain, I can’t even understand my own prayers but apparently I’m supposed to understand all the bible references in American media.  

Shoutout to those peeps that don’t consider South Asians to be “real” Asians though and to those peeps that don’t even consider me to be a “real” South Asian

6th (and 1st) generation Chinese American
Not here to put up with any of your &#8220;ching-chong-ling-long/ Me Love You Long Time&#8221; bullshit.
Anyone who thinks that Asian women are docile has clearly never met one. There are so many incredible Asian women who will not hesitate to give you the beat down of your LIFE should you insult them. Angry, Asian, and proud of it.

fuck the people that deny me my identity, fuck the people who deny southeast asians our identity, fuck the people who forget southeast asia exists, fuck the shadeism against southeast asia, fuck the people that call me exotic, fuck the people that call me a mutt, fuck people that fetishize interracial relationships, and fuck the people who think mixed babies will end racism.
