Yeah say that to the struggling single immigrant mother of four working 3 jobs, scratching by to support her family.
This is the classist type of shit that spews from the mouths of people who can afford to make these ~profound anti-materialism~ judgments while not having to worry about where their next meal comes from. “Check your privilege” is pretty damn relavent for you all
all you delusionial kpop fans defending Yesung (and Ryeowook) can go fuck yourselves
Rachel Rostad - “To JK Rowling, from Cho Chang”
this performance deserves to be experienced in whole (rather than gifs)
This was performed at Barnard just a week ago? I wish I could have been there to hear this. The part that goes, “I wasn’t sure if I was sad, but I cried anyway / Girls like me are supposed to cry over boys who look like him / I’ve seen all the movies, I’ve read all the books / We were just following the plot.”
Oh, and Cho and Chang are both Chinese and Korean surnames, not just Korean!
Yesss. (Also, here is her thoughtful response to criticism drawn from this piece). Oh, and this is another fantastic spoken word poetry video on AA issues that you guys should also check out if you haven’t already.
