"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"
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.

"My mission for this series is to open the eyes of people who judge someone because of the color of their skin, their ethnicity, the sexual orientation etc. With all that has been going on this year I felt it was my duty to try and help open those who are being judged and mistreated. The first image is not how they physically look, but how we judge them to be in our heads. For example: the "terrorist" is not an actual terrorist, she is the Nurse who has saved many lives and who most importantly loves America, but because of all that has been going on in the middle east so many people are being categorized as terrorists because of fear and anger. I want to remind the world that these people are normal people, they are good people, and that you can’t judge them without first getting to know them. I want everyone to be treated equally. This series is my voice crying out for change." - Joel Parés
