I have a serious question-


How do you confront casual racism in your friends? Or casual sexism?

I don't really know how to do it. Or if I should bother, because I don't think it's going to do anything.


I bet if I was a neurosurgeon from Harvard, they'd listen, but I'm just an ordinary person. What can I do?

Give them this look:



Like, if it's a shitty joke or they think something racist is funny, check if they're sincere and watch them backtrack while they get annoyed. They'll get the picture eventually.

I try and point out how their views are wrong, and it's hit or miss. They "believe" that their views are wrong, but their anecdotes prove their views are right.

I don't try anymore and just leave them be to their shittiness. If they get in trouble for it..... Don't say I didn't warn them.

Depends. I find that being straight up and adamant sometimes works but some people take it personally. It's tricky, especially if it's not as simple as someone using terms like autistic as a pejorative.

Yea that really depends on the situation and your relationship with your friends. My friends and I joke that something they said was "racist" so often that I would probably have to sit them down and do a serious talk if I wanted to actually send a message

I have the reputation of being the “SJW” of my friend group (although we’re all pretty progressive anyway) so they don’t really try any shit around me. When something happens I just give a meaningful look or say “not cool.” I established pretty early on I had no patience for that kind of stuff.

I mean, seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people? You can't have a whole group of warriors. You need wizards and rogues for the DPS, and for fuck's sake you need clerics. Everyone wonders why it never works...they never balance the party! (I'm totally a social justice cleric).

I'll have to try Red Rock when I'm in Torrance next time. Lived there for about a decade, and my parents has a house about a block away from where this restaurant is.

Edit: Also been to Musha, Musha is a fantastic izakaya. If you are in the mood for Korean BBQ in Torrance, try Bull's BBQ. The cheapest option is like $15 and it has the best meat I eaten at a KBBQ.

They bring it out in a block of cheese and mix it up and serve it to you straight from the cheese. I could eat like just 3 orders of that and I'd be happy. It's so damn good

The best meat? I haven't gone but I can't imagine it's better than like Park's BBQ, or even Kang Ho Dong. For AYCE though I'll give it a shot!

Featuring Asian GAF's favorite thing

Smithsonian Night Market Celebrates The Art Of Asian Cuisine

If egg rolls and sushi immediately leap to mind when you think of "Asian food," Simone Jacobson would like to help you think outside the take-out box. As food curator of the Smithsonian Institution's IlluminAsia festival in Washington, D.C., featuring an Asian-style night market, she used geography as her guide to finding food that could represent the vastness of the culture.

Or, as Jacobson emphasizes, cultures. "It's really important that we broaden the definition [of Asia]," she says. "All these different regions show the great diversity in Asian food, so it's really 'cultures,' in plural."

It just so happens that the Washington, D.C., suburbs include a community of Uighurs from central Asia, and several restaurants have sprung up there in recent years. It's a cuisine known for its use of ingredients like mutton, dried fruits and root vegetables, all of which are typically found in Uighur polow, a classic rice pilaf dish incorporating lamb, carrots and onion with raisins, pomegranate and spices. It's one of many cuisines that will be highlighted at the IlluminAsia street food market on Oct. 14 and 15 on the National Mall, along with Pan-Asian bao buns, Tibetan momos, and Sri Lankan rotis.

Following a nearly two-year renovation of the Smithsonian's Asian art museums — the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery of Art —director Julian Raby wanted to highlight the culture of food in the grand reopening event.

Around here, we have night market events every couple of months (626 Night Market, OC Night Market, SGV Night Market, etc.). It actually feels like they happen even more often than that because they are all relatively nearby, so it wouldn't be a problem to go to one that isn't in your immediate area.

The emphasis, of course, is not on historical or culturally accurate foods, though; it's more like an Asian-centric fair.

If it's any consolation, the first 626 Night Market was a huge clusterfuck. I had to park several blocks away, and it was so crowded that it took an hour just to walk through it, without even buying anything. The next year, they fixed it up, and it was amazing—but I think they spent too much money, and the next ones following that were lame again. Now they're consistently pretty good, but they also now charge admission.

Eh, not the biggest night market fan (in Asia) as those places tend to be more unsanitary than a small food shop.

No water (to wash hands).

Everything is dark, so you can barely see what you're buying.

The original did have some a memorable Asian side character and Asians do appear in the background. 2049 is worst in this regard, I don't really recall any PoC at all. And taken out of the context of the original film, the Japanese, Chinese and random Korean characters feel more like mere decorations.

Eh? I get that the PoC characters may not be particularly memorable, especially because they only appear in their respective scenes, but straight up not remembering them is bizarre. There's the orphanage scene, the scene where they get the wooden unicorn examined, and the scene where they examine the bones with a black police officer giving exposition.

It's California. We're incredibly segregated. There are places that go from 80% Asian to 90% white, within blocks. There's a lot of white people here who have never interacted with nonwhites-- never had boba, never had sushi, never had pho.
