I am half Korean from my single mother's side.I don't speak korean, nor I am I extremely immersed in the culture, but I do know a lot about it and lived in several Asian countries. I don't look "asian" (apparently "exotic-ish" some kids say -_-) but i have been called chink and made fun of my heritage, but it is somewhat rare when that happens. I was wondering, do I have the right to call myself a women of color? my friends (who are all poc) say i have the right to, i don't want to sound racist
Sorry for the delayed response, swear I didn’t see the notification for this… yes I agree you’re a WOC. Unless of course you actually want to disavow your Asian heritage and identify as white (lol ew).
So long as you acknowledge a certain degree of passing privilege in light of us POC who can’t pass for white under any circumstances, then all’s good. X
p.s. And to hell with any ignorant asshole who tries to deny your heritage for not fitting some weirdass “exotic” Orientalist template.
in regards to hyunsu’s murder, holt is now publicly saying that the bruises on hyunsu’s body could be “MONGOLIAN SPOTS” or BIRTH MARKS - audacious claims considering the AUTOPSY found “a fracture at the base of skull, bruises to the forehead, swelling of the brain and wounds to other parts of the body..blunt impact to the back from a linear and triangular shaped object.”
but why wouldn’t holt be audacious? this isn’t the first time children who have been adopted through holt have been murdered by their adoptive parents. in 2008, when four korean children were murdered by their adoptive parents, holt’s response was: “Holt International Children’s Services investigated and found that the Sueppels were a very good family when the children were adopted. They had no criminal records. Mr. Sueppel’s parents and brothers had decent jobs.”
apparently if you have no criminal record and your parents and brothers have decent jobs… by holt’s standards, you are a “very good family” - NO! yes, there is abuse in biological families but we can’t screen biological families before they have children. however, we can and SHOULD screen adoptive families rigorously before we place children in their care. clearly, the screening process at holt (who placed hyunsu AND the four 2008 murder case victims) and catholic charities (the american agency hyunsu was placed through) is NOT working.
holt must take responsibility for its part in hyunsu’s death!!
