      can we talk about the fact that strictly speaking, russians are actually asians?

      This was so wonderfully elaborated, please don't leave the video halfway and watch till the end. John Oliver promoting progressiveness as usual❤️.

      Kamala Harris is as Asian as Panda Express is Chinese or Italian as Oliver Garden. She doesn’t look Asian nor should she pass herself as one.

      The spate of racial violence during the pandemic. You kind of sped through that, John. I mean, you pontificated exhaustively on the premise that everyone needs to remember to blame white people, but you spent a fraction of a second on the current violence which is perpetuated primarily by african americans against asian american communities. You're too brilliant to stoop to foisting cheap attempts to buy your way out of whiteness, John. Stop perpetuating the need to label everyone and stop being a shill for the grievance industry.

      The model minority is a tool of white supremacy. I used to love this guy but he's a little too woke for me these days.

    10. okonh0wp

      People whining about being the model minority are first world problems. It's much better to be model minority than stereotyped negatively

      This is one of the reasons why I don't answer the questions in the Census regarding ethnic origin. Systemic institutionalized racism is all it really is. What the hell does my racial background have to do with distribution of economic resources and voting? I'm an American, that all there is. Deal with it. When people ask me where I'm from, I respond, "New York". They always say, "That's not what I mean" and they get a "I know what you meant."

    12. Straytenwhite Normell

      A person is either an American or not an American. There's no such thing as African, Asian, Irish, Polish, Italian, etc. Americans. Either you're an American or you're not.

      1. wNG iMAGE aND dESIGN

        Unfortunately, They believe you're only an American if you're White. Everyone else is a hyphen American.

      I recognize this piece is well intentioned, but as an American of Taiwanese ancestry who also lived in China for a decade who has been close with numerous people who suffer from mental health issues, I feel it sort of lacks perspective so I wanted to join the discourse. I love John Oliver and I think the humorous points are great, but I felt compelled to share my personal view, especially as it pertains to the model minority myth and its impact on suicides/mental health. I feel like this piece misplaces the heft of blame on society instead of giving people the accountability and tools to take appropriate action to help themselves. I know the model minority myth plays a role, but in my perspective it’s a much smaller one than presented. I do appreciate his good intentions though. Couple points: 1. Mental health issues and intense pressure to perform for Chinese kids often comes from inside the home. When nothing you do can satisfy your own parents and family, you really don’t care what your white buddies at school or some white TV anchor say about your math skills. I faced this as a child, as many of my peers have - the jokes in school were fun and funny but going home was a nightmare. Even in China, suicides are skyrocketing (but underreported for obvious reasons related to their gov). The pressure to perform and compete is even more intense there, where no model minority myth exists. Its because opportunities are far fewer and competition is far more intense. Parents fear the worst and demand the best (with good intentions, but in harmful ways) so that their children can succeed and "survive". This same attitude carries over when they immigrate to the US. 2. Chinese views on mental health are absurdly outdated. My wife suffered from depression and borderline personality disorder (she is a rape victim, a single child of a broken home, her parents used her as a weapon against each other in a horribly bitter divorce). She tried to take her own life several times before and during our relationship. Her treatment options went from medication (no therapy) straight to mental hospital and electroshock therapy when she didn’t respond to medication. It wasn’t until I got to know her well that I took her to see North America trained doctors and went through years of medication and psychological therapy. She is now in remission and medication is being reduced. To this day, her parents don’t understand that she was actually sick and not just acting out like a child, though they are happy that she has “matured.” Traditionally, older generation Asians view mental health problems as “weakness,” until they lose their child. This is not that they are evil, but their education and knowledge is simply lacking. Time (and a lot of pain) will change this as these problems become overwhelming. If this sounds like your situation, seek help from friends, your school counselor, or anyone else. Getting help is not weak. Surviving these tough situations will be one of your great achievements, and strengthen you to do many great things in the future. It may harm your short-term relationship with your family, but know that once you have found your will to live and your inner strength, only then can your relationships begin to heal. In reality, a lot of toxic habits exist in every culture. We need to evaluate both the external and internal and improve. While I do agree that all the “issues” presented are indeed issues, I think as a whole people are really blowing recent discourse out of proportion and losing perspective as it pertains to what I personally see as more serious issues (as it so happens, our black friends are still getting shot by police, mass shootings are increasingly rampant, poor kids are starving... this list is long.) It’s ok to recognize the societal issues and push for change, but we also need to recognize how lucky we are to be living in the USA and step back from all the heated discourse from time to time to remember. I’ve been called Chink, been told to go back to my country (I’m born and raised American), been in race-driven physical altercations, but I’m still eternally grateful that my parents immigrated here and allowed me to live here in the US (I spent 10 years overseas in the second most developed economy in the world and it doesn’t hold a candle to our great nation). You can't change hate and anger with more hate and anger. Embrace who you are, be grateful, and accept that nearly half of people could be haters for no apparent reason no matter who you are, where you are, or what race you are. Ignore the haters and do your part to tip the scale of loving, good people to 51%. You’ll be much happier in life. If you made it all the way down here I'm impressed! Wish you a great day and hope you can pass along some gratitude today!

    26. Michael Šefčík

      I'm Czech, I don't live in the U.S. Yet, unlike the majority of people commenting here it seems to me that this show tends to discriminate against whites in every episode and blame whites for everything bad that happened mostly to blacks (but to Asians as well as we can see from this episode). John Oliver didn't mentioned that a lot of the attacks against Asians recently had been conducted by blacks. The thing is that virtually every second story is about whites being the bad guys which is also a stereotype. And John Oliver fights against stereotypes in this show. Imagine how would you feel if someone constantly pictured your race as the bad guys?

      1. wNG iMAGE aND dESIGN

        This is a video about the legacy of systemic racism in the USA. Against Native-Americans, against Blacks (Slavery), AND against Asians. And perhaps to your surprise, racism against Italians and Irish as well. Identifying yourself by color, ie. White, is inherently racism. Period. That label comes from racist origins here in the USA. And only two groups have had color 'white-washed' to become socially acceptable identifiers. White and Black. You don't live here, you won't understand, you don't have to endure 50+ years of racism like I have as a Chinese-American. My late uncle served as a Marine during WW2. It doesn't matter it seems. When my Italian wife and I were introduced during a dinner party in Phoenix, two White women casually spoke without reservation, on how confused and shocked on how such a marriage was possible. When I mentioned she's Canadian, they were suddenly relieved and exclaimed, "Oh, that explains everything!" I knew what they meant and wasn't ashamed to say it to my face. That no self-respecting White Christian American woman would consider such a union with a 'China-man'. This is how deeply embedded it is in American culture and societies.

      We Native tribal people and African Americans have had it worse. We have dealt with disparity and racism for hundreds of years Asian and Asian Americans are the New kids on the block and in today's world are actually treated better than we Natives, African Americans and Spanish communities. African Americans are being gunned down left and right by police we Natives are still on reservations living in horrible conditions. Honestly they got a little bit of bad treatment from a bunch of ignorant people who didn't understand the coronavirus but they are in no way shape or form truly discriminated against.

      1. Ignoramus

        @wNG iMAGE aND dESIGN Defunding the police just means more private policing for those who can afford it, and poor people are screwed over by it

      2. wNG iMAGE aND dESIGN

        I know history and how heinous Whites treated Native Americans and Blacks. But the Chinese immigrants were exploited, killed, and deported as early as the 1800s. Thousands murdered, lynched. Many built the railroads in the West and were murdered instead of being paid for their labor. Old phrase, A Chinaman's luck. Japanese-Americans were forced into concentration camps during WW2, lost everything they owned. No formal apology from the US government to this day for violation of their civil rights as citizens. ALL non-white residents of US territorial possessions abroad, are secondary US citizens. They have no say in selecting representatives in any US election. None. They are not White. Statehood was declared, by law, based on the percentage of White occupation of new territories. Displacing Natives. Hawaii, is a sovereign nation, but colonialized by White settlers and was taken as a State with no say of the indigenous population! It is to this day, an occupation. For you to fall for the old trick of believing "well we had it far worse" is what white supremacists want you to do. Get into a conflict between minority groups. Divide and conquer strategy. The promotion of Black on Asian hate crimes these days, with over 4,000+ cases since 2020, is a prime example of this. So, don't kid yourself. It's far more beneficial to the establishment to continue airing such hate crimes in order to undermine any Defund the Police movement politically. It only looks bad when the news must air Whites committing Asian hate crimes. Or hate crimes against Blacks (BLM), and Native Americans (Dakota pipeline). We minorities should be joining forces in solidarity, not fight among ourselves.

      1. wNG iMAGE aND dESIGN

        White people are screwed up that way, LOL! But you're right, technically they are all Asian. And if you recall, Middle East used to be labeled Asia Minor by White folk. Heck, Russians are technically Asian. :) That's why the term Asian-American is such a ill-used term by Americans. But Whites only believe they are Americans, while all others are hyphen Americans. ie. Asian-Americans, Native-Americans, African-Americans, Latin-Americans. Jews and Muslims though, causes them to have fits...can't fit them into tidy little label.

But recently with his public support of Israel response on Palestinians, and his backing of the Police Union and not supporting Police reform, during his NYC mayoral race, killed it for me. He sold out to appease the establishment in New York.

    45. Neltins

      Strong values and hard work... tell that to all the successful business owners in Tusla OK. The truth is white men have always hated & resented any black people they see more successful. It's only okay for blacks to succeed if they're propping up the white man, making him feel good, or serving him.

    62. RobinHood3000

      Jeez, even knowing the white supremacist reasoning behind it, it's so hard to turn off the emotional validation from some asshole saying that your ethnic group is better than others. Imagine being a newly arrived Asian immigrant desperate to be accepted into your new home, and all you have to do is let the white people in power pat you on the head and use you as a club to beat other minorities down. Of course a lot of people are going to say yes, especially if they buy into white propaganda about black and brown people.

    63. Joel Middaugh

      Easier than trying to find out if someone identifies as Asian American: ask them where they or their family are from specifically, and then remember. Try it, it's not hard. For starters, the surname Ham is Korean. Nguyen or Tran is Vietnamese. Pham is either Chinese or Vietnamese.

    64. ericduan19

      i've been to the US & i really couldn't understand the smart & successful Asian stereotype. i'm just an average dude with a mediocre liberal arts degree working a wage that could never buy me a house...... but every non-Asian American just assumed that i know how to code & i'm a wizard in math. no, i can't solve the square root of 169 in 2 seconds & you can kiss my ass on that pi digit reciting contest. and btw, my mom doesn't have 20 gold jewelries hid underneath her mattress, we put money in bank accounts & index funds just like you do.

      To anyone who claims America isn't a racist country: you are living in an alternate reality, are ignorant and oblivious, or just racist scum... or, you're lying because you have a political agenda. America is rife with racism so rank & so deeply rooted, entrenched & embedded in our society that Americans would rather live in an alternative reality, pretend it doesn't exist, and try to stage a coup d'etat against their own country than work to fix it.

      1. Ignoramus

        @Anthony Edwards I have a closer relationship with my birth family than most adoptees so I'm not the best person to talk about this but It's hard because we share some similarities with asian americans but not others. We don't speak our native language or eat traditional foods or have the stereotypical tiger parents. We're cut off from our culture so it can be hard to feel "asian enough" to fit in amongst asian-americans. However, we still are very aware that we look different from our white family and we're still viewed as foreigners so we don't fit in amongst white people either

        Is that really a thing? You wouldn’t have said so if it wasn’t... I hope that changes for you, just remember that us outcasts are a community too. Great topic.

      I almost committed suicide when I found out I had herpes virus, I was going through a health blog when I saw how a woman testified of how Dr IGUDIA on FIblock cured her and I decided to contact him, to my greatest shock he actually cured me and now I test negative

      A single good reason to beat up a car: over a decade ago in Baltimore city, police went FAR above and beyond their authority, targeting, searching, harassing, assaulting, beating, killing, and jailing black people (as most still do to this day, nationwide). They planted drugs on them. They beat them to a bloody pulp and then took them to jail without treatment. They constantly harassed them and looked for and created reasons to jail them. & then locked them in PACKED bookings cells for days to weeks at a time without seeing a judge or commissioner, without their medications and without a phone call. So in 1 small neighborhood in Baltimore while the cops hid in the bushes to jump black Americans (happens at least twice a week, known as jump out days) and had their squad car parked nearby in back of the run down apartments, the young boys in the neighborhood smashed the heck out of the car. Can't say they didn't deserve it. My heart goes out to those boys. Many of whom aren't alive today to tell the tale. A good reason to smash a car? I don't know. I'd never even think to do something like that. But for those who lived it, I'm sure to them it was fully justified..as they watched their friends and brothers & sisters get murdered in the streets..not by other PoC, but by those sworn to protect them.

      Good video, as a person of Indian descent I agree that the term Asian is too broad to be very helpful, I never identify as Asian since people always imagine them as East Asian anyway. Also, while I agree that the model minority myth can be harmful, at the same time Asians shouldn’t be afraid to highlight positive cultural values like hard work. There needs to be a balance between not playing into the myth while also allowing some room for praise.

      People: "AAPI unknown!" Person 2: "Hang on a minute, don't BTS, Blackpink, Stray Kids, TXT, Twice, Itzy, Ateez, Stayc, NCT and Exo come from Asia!? Anime also." Person 3: "Yes, yes they do!"

      Asians should have a platform to network with each other all over the globe to ensure that this kind of shit never happens again. People are scared of our numbers lets use this to our advantage and fucking swarm.

      the stereotypes about asians being successful have to do with policy. there are specific immigration policies that incentivize educated people to come from asia to the US. it's very hard to immigrate to the US, but if you have a college degree in a "technical" field (STEM) then it's easier for you to come. Look up the Hart-Celler Act of 1965 immigrationhistory.org/item/hart-celler-act/

      John Oliver and many other people: "Asians in news because killings, shootings, coronavirus, bat soup, chinese food." Me: "You'd think they notice that Kpop, anime, Kdramas and Bollywood come from Asia! Heck it should be easy, it's not even middle east (which with Southeast Asia, Central Asia, and West Asia, etc. are also part of Asia, and then there's Pacific Islander etc., are also Asian Pacific Islander. And the disputed Native American, North African, and Latin American.) it's East Asia and South Asia!"
