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.
Anonymous said: I live in Japan and I vaguely know (have met once) this gross expat who takes photos of people on the train without their consent, often invasive or inappropriate ones, under the guise of "art." His Instagram is davidbuchler--the worst ones might be farther down. Any advice on what could be done about this creep?
After investigation yes this is a pretty gross fucking expat who apparently lives in Japan and takes pictures of Japanese people.. without consent. Sometimes blatantly in their face despite their obvious discomfort with the situation.
I saved that one above and this final one, uncensored, just to show the discomfort on these peoples’ faces as they’re photographed without consent.
Comments: "YOU just TOOK this shot? Wow!", "Theyre onto you david"
How fucking appauling.
No respect for Japanese people’s personal space, what so ever. Photographed as if they’re a novelty; animals in the wild, animals in a Zoo. There for your entertainment.
No need to ask for a picture, no need to inquire to see if it’s okay. Because they view Japanese people as public property and something to make a case study out of; something to gawk at.
Western expats in Japan / Korea literally do this shit.
I have had tourists in Osaka try to do this shit TO ME.
Japan law says to take photographs of citizens in public spaces, requires consent.
To publish photographs of citizens, requires consent.
Not only is this disgusting, wrong, dehumanizing, and generally repulsive but it’s also illegal.
If tourists / expats try to take pictures of you without your consent, your rights and personal space is being violated and you have a right to tell them no. If they still took a picture, you have a right to see that the picture is deleted. What they’re doing is illegal and you have the right to stand up and protect yourself.
I don’t have instagram so I don’t know how to report people; but if you do, please report davidbuchler.
Expat plague needs to be taught that we as Japanese people are not their for their amusement. Learn some fucking respect for others or face the consequences.
nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.
I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.
Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.
When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.
NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.
The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.
This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is.
And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her.
What a good movie.
Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.
It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.
Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.
And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.
What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
