It saddens me that when it came to Ferguson, everyone and I mean EVERYONE from different nationalities and walks of life was aware of the situation, spreading awareness and defending the protestors but barely anyone knows about Pakistan.

“I repeat: these stereotypes are dangerous. Reducing Asian women into a sexual object is not funny, it is not flattering. It is perilous. We can see this when Asian women are subject to race-targeted sexual violence. The racist nature of the crimes go unrecognized and unpunished, as if there is nothing wrong with choosing a rape victim because she is Asian.
In Spokane, Washington, two white men and a woman specifically hunted random Japanese women in an elaborately planned scheme to kidnap, rape, sodomize, torture and videotape them. Their motivation? According to police reports, the rapists had a sexual “fantasy” and “fixation” about young Japanese women, who they believed were “submissive.” (The very same beliefs so blatantly bandied about by Gawker and some of its readers.)
During a one month period in Autumn 2000, the predators abducted five Japanese exchange students, ranging from age 18 to 20. Motivated by their sexual biases about Asian women, all three used both their bodies and objects to repeatedly rape - vaginally, anally and orally — two of the young women over a seven hour ordeal.
In Spokane, one of the attackers immediately confessed to searching only for Japanese women to torture and rape — and eventually all pled guilty and were convicted. It clearly was a racially-motivated criminal case. The victims also believed they were attacked because of their race, the prosecutor told me.
What is astonishing, however, is that the district attorney failed to bring an additional charge that would have tagged the crimes as motivated by racial bias. The police also neglected to report the crime as a “hate crime,” as demanded by the Justice Department to keep accurate statistics of all bias-driven crimes. Although the attackers all received long sentences, an important opportunity to raise the nation’s consciousness was lost. We, as a society, were told that it’s not a hate crime to rape an Asian woman because of her race.”—
I am constantly hearing that me using People of Color is racist because it's segregating people in to two groups. (Also in keep being told that it's incorrect because people who are Asian have skin basically the same as white people???) And I know that saying PoC isn't bad, and the Asian thing is just ????? But I was wondering, what could I say to explain why using PoC isn't bad? I'm really terrible at defending myself in things and it's something that I'm constantly being cut off with!
And no one says that about the term”white people”? Like??? Especially how they’ve been separating us from them only based on their boring physical features while we are born with the beauty of color in our skin???
How is POC a “racist term”? White people are hilarious because those are the only people that complain about it.
