@Wood-Ape - OK/MN my entire school system had a jap immersion program K-12 with a sister school in Japan. But it’s a wealthy district

2018-12-30 03:30:43 UTC  

I did actually. They are somewhat higher tier blacks and Hispanics, (talented 10th) but they're still unimpressive compared to mostly white classes I observed in neighboring districts.

2018-12-30 03:31:00 UTC  

And Seattle just has Chinese classes. Not enough Japanese kids for it to count

2018-12-30 03:32:23 UTC  

I've had to lower my expectations quite a lot.

2018-12-30 03:33:56 UTC  

There was an old amren story about someone like you who was doxxed and (I believe) fired. Never showed any favoritism or treated people worse. He wrote for amren or another site on the side

jfc can we just delete the internet now? Humanity is totally lost. It's stuff like this that made God flood the earth.

2018-12-30 03:44:03 UTC  

just not

2018-12-30 03:46:26 UTC  

I wish more high schools had Japanese and Chinese etc

2018-12-30 03:46:31 UTC  

I was lucky mine did

2018-12-30 03:46:58 UTC  

Japanese 100 level classes were the cringiest I took in college though

2018-12-30 03:47:36 UTC  

Most of the atrocious weebs were filtered out when they learned they couldn’t just watch anime

2018-12-30 03:48:10 UTC  

We didn’t even have Italian language classes but we had Japanese....but we had Russian....

2018-12-30 03:48:23 UTC  

In college, the first class you needed for a Japanese minor had 40 people. The last one started with 6 and finished with 2.

2018-12-30 03:48:44 UTC  

...probably both Japanese

2018-12-30 03:48:49 UTC  

I like the Ben Franklin model of language acquisition

2018-12-30 03:48:51 UTC  

One was

2018-12-30 03:48:56 UTC  

The other was me

2018-12-30 03:48:56 UTC  

pfah. I learned to read plenty of Eurostani languages... granted I did that with the benefit of years of foreign language media sources

2018-12-30 03:49:36 UTC  

We don’t fail out of classes ‘round these parts

2018-12-30 03:49:55 UTC  

so you just stop showing up to class?

2018-12-30 03:49:59 UTC  

Technically the other girl was half Japanese and half Bengali

2018-12-30 03:50:09 UTC  

how'd that happen?

2018-12-30 03:50:17 UTC  

Nah that class started with 6, she and I were the only two that passed.

2018-12-30 03:50:31 UTC  

Idk. Wonder what it’s like being your own ethnic group.

2018-12-30 03:52:09 UTC  

Alright, here's how weird the day is: Pewdiepie goes on for a solid ~5 minutes about Yukio Mishima

2018-12-30 03:52:36 UTC  

He also says Fahrenheit 451 is a bad book.
Pewds is making it a tough sell rn

2018-12-30 03:53:19 UTC  

every time my sister talks about "good schools" I am tempted to say "you mean white schools, right?" but I think if I said that she might send her kids to the ghetto school where I work just to show me she's "not racist" -_-

2018-12-30 03:53:36 UTC  

Pewds is wrong on another count: The Cat in the Hat is CLEARLY inferior to Yurtle the Turtle

2018-12-30 03:54:26 UTC  

I love that he is recommending Mishima. One of the first things that comes up online is his nationalism

2018-12-30 03:54:56 UTC  

oh, uh, he also talks about a book written by a Holocaust survivor

2018-12-30 03:55:02 UTC  

If there were a spectrum of /ourguy/-ness to the opposite, he’s more our /our guy/ than not

2018-12-30 03:55:30 UTC  

I'm not so sure about that

2018-12-30 03:56:38 UTC  

I didn’t used to think so. Lately I’m more convinced he’s def more controversial than he lets on

2018-12-30 03:57:22 UTC  

Well more controversial, sure.
But he is not /ourguy/ and it's dangerous to rush out there and start projecting our beliefs onto others

2018-12-30 03:57:28 UTC  

Unless you all can read minds

2018-12-30 03:57:34 UTC  

'cause I can't do that yet.

2018-12-30 03:57:38 UTC  


2018-12-30 03:57:46 UTC  

@Salo Saloson very measured and reasonable

2018-12-30 03:57:50 UTC  

This spectrum I’m imagining is pretty wide

2018-12-30 03:58:41 UTC  

Pewds does what he's gotta do in his position. I think not unequivocally bowing to the system is pretty good for someone so high profile. I love that lyric in his T-Series diss video: "I'm a blue-eyes white dragon, while you're just dark magician, oof"
