A bite from a king cobra is deadly. Within minutes, the victim’s nervous system faces agony, followed by a cardiovascular collapse. In the end, the victim falls into a coma or dies.
Why did I bring that up?
My experience at pride idol was nothing short of a hazard to my health. Not only did the drag queen spew out strings of racist “jokes,” one judge even joined in the chorus of poison.
Luckily, someone spoke up against the racism last night where everyone else was too embarrassed to do so. What’s worse is that most probably didn’t even mind all the racist jokes and were just laughing along at the expense of the people of color especially the Asian community.
I don’t understand why people in our community especially the Asian community tolerate that type of behavior. I don’t speak on behalf of the whole Asian community but it is time for us to break away from our silence. Being silent only feeds the poison.
