Cleaning Piece III by Yoko Ono (via thatkindofwoman)
I try to be positive about everything and it really has helped me a lot in the long run
European accents (and in general white people accents) are commonly perceived as attractive and endearing, while accents from basically any other part of the world are considered to be signs of laziness and disrespect and get routinely made fun of.
My whole family is Korean. My sister and I have grown up in the US so we can pretty much speak English. However, our parents speak very broken English. It makes me mad though because my mother has taken ESL classes at our local university and my father graduated from the University of Washington with a PhD in mechanical engineering, yet I constantly see them being made fun of by their coworkers or other people in general because “they’re too lazy to try to understand English.” My mom has spent countless nights crying whilst taking her classes because of the stress wishing she could speak half as fluently as I can. If you don’t know what it’s like trying to learn English as a second language, then you have no room to talk.
NEVER MAKE FUN OF SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS BROKEN ENGLISH. IT MEANS THEY SPEAK ONE MORE LANGUAGE THAN YOU DO.
Reblogging for that last comment. 👌
one time I went to a gamestop and as I walked in the employee was like “cooking mama is over there!” and snickered with his friend and I was so pissed because 1) I was there to pick up diablo III and 2) cooking mama is an excellent game not an insult to fling at women when u feel like being a misogynist. anyway I hate nerds
