like maybe one day some of us tumblr asians
September 22, 2012
Maybe one day some of us tumblr Asians will have a conversation about Japanese imperialism and WWII.
I wonder how much of our conversation will be “my lolo said this about the Japanese invasion”
Or how intertwined and inter-related japanese imperialism of that time is with american colonialism in the Philippines?
Like, sorry that after being force fed white mythology (ie., canadian and european ‘history’) and pursuing my own interests, that many of us haven’t had time to study or learn the complexities of our own histories.
And by ‘sorry’ I mean fuck you.
