Whilst talking to my sister about class, I realized my Native American & Indigenous Studies courses have all had a common trend:
1. Semester begins with about 25 Natives (of various tribes, mostly SW) and exactly one white person in the class.
2. Within two weeks, the white person drops.
Wow, it’s almost as if being in an environment where you’re the only representative of your race is difficult or something.
Please donate to my GoFundMe. I’m having financial struggles due to my landlord skipping town before she could give me my security deposit before the fucking holidays. Before you tell me to sue her anti-Black, evil ass, there’s a 45 day maximum she has to give it back to me. So literally, I could be waiting till fucking February until I get my rightful security deposit.
Hey y'all I really need to get at least $200 more right now. This situation has been the worst for me where I’m borrowing money just to pay bills but don’t have money for rent or food. Please send what you can to my pay pal so I can receive the funds in real time. Please!! Thank you to everyone who has helped so far!

i was just informed that a vegan company based out of portland, oregon US is claiming to have made a breakthrough in “Asian cuisine.”
they premise the necessity for their product based off of ignorant, disrespectful claims -
- CLAIM 1: “the number of vegan alternatives [to fish sauce] is staggeringly small” - to which i say do you think maybe you’re just ignorant? that you didn’t grow up SE asian? so you don’t have access to our vegan fish sauce? are you saying that it doesn’t exist because white people can’t have it? because surely you aren’t so deluded to think that SE asian buddhism didn’t mean that veganism was a thing there long before it was a thing here, in the white american world? do you think that that white supremacy and first world veganism have colluded to make everyone think that non-white vegans don’t exist or that we do but we’re just doing it wrong? because i assure you, it exists
- CLAIM 2: fish sauce is “gross.” i don’t know where to start with this one. i’ve let this culture’s white supremacist anti-vietnameseness translate into raging self-hate long enough to still tolerate this disrespectful “FREAKY EXOTIC ASIAN FOOD” bullshit . fish sauce is vietnamese blood . you cannot begin to understand its role in our culture. i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, you know your veganism is shit when you rely on old racist tropes to promote it
yeah yeah. fuck you too.
their & their where you can contact them
white people, this is why nobody trusts you
white vegans have no respect for the concept of cultural dishes but what else is new
What’s next??? “Vegan” pho? We sure haven’t heard of that one before… 😒
@reclaimingasia mm.. i don’t appreciate your response either. did you not read my post? veganism exists in vietnam. let’s not erase vietnamese vegans yeah?
Does anyone know what this instrument is called? Its like a Marimba but it is very large and made out of huge stones. Listen to that tone! haha Love it!
It’s a type of Vietnamese lithophone (literally rock sound instrument) called a đàn đá. Some ethnomusicologists think that these are likely the oldest type of man made instrument.
this is some good rock music right here.
