I didn’t have an orange t-shirt, but I wore orange today because it was Orange Shirt Day, meant to recognize the harm that was done to residential school students and to show a commitment to the principle that every child matters. Event organizers are asking people across North America to wear an orange shirt on September 30 as a way of supporting Residential School Survivors. #neverforget

"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"
Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently
Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.
At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."
The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.
This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media.
We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.
Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.
You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.
" Black men keep on proving that when given access to power, money and influence, be it political or cultural, it is not Black women they ride or die for. They want our unwavering devotion, even as they make choices that contribute to the silencing of women of color in a culture we helped to build. And young, oblivious white women, caught up in fanciful ideas about a post-racial universe, climb on board "
