These 10 women have a lot more in common than just being finalists for the Miss Korea 2013 pageant. After their images went viral—first showing up on a Japanese blog, then Reddit, then Jezebel where we first spotted it—we couldn’t help but be curious about the claims that these women…
Frankly I think this is incredibly racist. These women do not all look a like to me (okay, maybe the ones on the far right top and bottom look similar). As a Korean woman, I’ve gotten a lot of “you all look alike!” in my lifetime and it’s fucking stupid. Also, are Americans really getting upset over alleged plastic surgeries? Are you fucking serious? This, being the same culture, that loves shows like “The Real Housewives of Orange County?”
I think that these women represent the standard of beauty in Korea, so yeah maybe they look a bit similar in a quick glance. But you can’t say that such standards don’t exist in the US and every other country in the world. Click on the link to the Jezebel story and scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see what I mean.
"Don’t say you’re a writer if you’re not writing. You’re not a writer, and who cares anyway, if you’re not writing. Even if you’re writing, don’t call yourself a writer. Say, instead, “I write.” It’s the verb that’s important, not the noun. “I haven’t been able to write,” people say to me all the time. “No, actually,” I respond, “you have been able to write, but you have chosen not to.” They usually walk away unhappy. We are always — always — in choice. If you have a napkin and a pencil nub or a piece of dirt on a stick, you can write. Don’t let the “writer” take precedence over the “writing.” Let go of outcome. (…) Don’t search endlessly for a book deal before you’ve even written anything. Sit the hell down and write. Sit alone with yourself and a piece of paper without thinking about an audience, your database, the best way to market using social media."

GRASSLEY: One provision that non-Native Americans can be tried in tribal court. And why is that a big thing? Because of the constitutionality of it, for two reasons. One, you know how the law is, that if you have a jury, the jury is supposed to be a reflection of society. […] So you get non-Indians, let me say to make it easy, you get non-Indians going into a reservation and violating a woman. They need to be prosecuted. They aren’t prosecuted. So the idea behind [VAWA] is we’ll try them in tribal court. But under the laws of our land, you got to have a jury that is a reflection of society as a whole, and on an Indian reservation, it’s going to be made up of Indians, right? So the non-Indian doesn’t get a fair trial.
White supremacy is REAL. White supremacy has no problem with White juries convicting people of color. But when the opposite is proposed….. White supremacy protects itself.
