Could anyone think we’re not all related somehow? Like, how are people still THAT stupid?
My 10 year old son and I are very close… well, I’m close with all my kids. But today we were talking about his Roblox character and he says “you don’t look like a real Asian”… which of course I get what he means, by what is represented in media.
I asked him to describe what does an Asian look like to him… and he said the stereotype of slanted eyes… which I asked him if he considered Indians to be Asian?
He says of course. And it clicked to him that half of the Asian population are dark skinned people with huge eyes. Then he acknowledged that I do look like a real Asian, just not the Asian they talk about.
They don’t talk about the people in the southeast Asian region. There’s a lot of mix people there. Indian, African, Chinese and even French heritage. You can’t expect us to have a certain type of look.
We’re all related. We have connections to each other. That’s why racism is just so weird to me… like with today’s access to information, how the fuck are you still stupid? 🤷🏾♀️
This is my Khmer appreciation post. I love my people and my culture. After all we’ve been through, we still manage to find happiness.
It’s a choice. Like love.

With love and only love,
