News to Dave Ross and the rest of you Mr. Yunioshi-loving Mikado apologists: Asian Americans DGAF What You Think: http://bit.ly/1moAMD2
Jul 15, 2014 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on Performing Race and a Dangerously White Production of The Mikado.
There's a lot of whitesplaining going on here. Thanks for that, Seattle.
May 31, 2014 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on That’s Kind of Racist, Dude.
@5, 7, 28 etc.: Thanks for the whitesplaining. Also: Kiss my yellow ass.
Mar 21, 2014 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on Divergent Just Makes You Think of Its Better Predecessor, The Hunger Games.
@2: Book 3 was "Allegiant". But it might as well have been called "I Hate It". (If you read book 3's Amazon reviews, folks excoriated the conclusion to the trilogy.)
Mar 6, 2013 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on Dear Nerds: Don't Do Blackface.
@Shibari-san: Your argument, then, is that these twits weren't racist because they were "well-meaning." What is that old chestnut about the road to hell being paved with good intentions?

David Brothers says it much more succinctly than can: "People intend a lot of things, but the only thing that matters is what they actually do. If what you intended to do is show your respect for someone, and you do it by replicating an incredibly dehumanizing practice, guess what! You’re a jerk. You can be a jerk through ignorance as well as malice. And blackface? Kind of a jerk move."

@TheMisanthrope: So you're giving a pass to Black Face Cosplayer Geordie merely because he meant no ill will? That's weak. Brothers also fesses up to his having been an asshole: "I didn’t mean to be a dick to Asian peoples when I was a kid. I thought I was just having fun with my cousin. My grandmom knew better and put me in my place... You can be a jerk through ignorance as well as malice." Would you like to rethink your argument now?
Feb 12, 2013 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on A Pastor Would Like to Address the Controversy over His Events that "Mock" the "Orientals" and "Blacks".
I've never heard of Scandanvians (sic). Is the Republic of Scandanvia located near Portlandia?

It gets better, Young Republicans!
Nov 15, 2012 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on It Wasn't Just the Gay Vote that Was Decisive.
I'd just like to go on the record as saying that as a gay Asian American who voted for Obama, I have yet to receive my special gifts which Romney claims were offered to my demographic. I will most definitely *not* be voting for Obama in 2016 as a result.
Jul 16, 2012 My Other Car's the Tardis commented on Rob McKenna's Assistant: "shut up and speak english #asians".
@4: Wait, so if the tweets are less than 6 mos. old, it's ok that they're racist? Wow, thanks for clarifying that.
