@psylee123 lol hell no. This forum is open source software. I had to get another guy to set it up. Phoenix Framework looks interesting though. That one looks worth learning. It’s built for scaling and reliability from the start so bigger projects remain maintainable and relatively easy to modify quickly.
Why: To find other Asians who are tired of being oppressed. I would like to eventually dismantle the current narratives about the Korean peninsula being propagated by western imperialist media, and spread truthful information about the American Empire to Koreans outside of America, and provide an online community for woke Korean Americans.
Background: IT, economics, math, systems science
Interests: sustainability, decolonization, social justice, history, art, judo, Asian languages, diversity/inclusion/empowerment, building solidarity among Koreans, Asians, and POC, and more.
@secondstrike it’s a convenient argument to credit the industrial revolution. Most countries are barely above sustenance levels in an agricultural society- which does not allow time and money to be invested in innovation. One may wonder where the surplus capital came to allow for this investment. England controlled something like 300M people during the 1800s - perhaps 1/5th of the world population at the time. Spectacular ROI of colonization can allow countries to invest in inventions, railroads, etc.
For Asian females in particular, you’ll face non stop sexual harassment from white males.
The situation is most serious for women. Suicide attempts are several times higher amongst foreign female adoptees than amongst Swedish born women of the same age. The difference is big even compared to adopted women with Swedish biological parents.
The research team believe they’ve detected a pattern following interviews with young adopted women of Asian descent.
“People have preconceptions that [women of Asian descent] are promiscuous, prostitutes, have a strong sex drive and are considered to be exotic,” said Frank Lindblad, who believes that such sexual prejudices can be difficult for the women concerned to understand.
The study is published in the scientific journal Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric
How come the best and brightest in Asia go to the West, while the untalented, unqualified, undesirable from the West not only find acceptance in Asia, but are actively sought?
Well put, it makes no sense. Worse than that is that geniuses like Tsien Hsue-shen are treated like crap despite (violence, vicious stereotypes, being accused of spying, have their careers destroyed, have dating/marriage problems due to racism) being invaluable.
Same with these other Asian scientists.
Meanwhile, many actual white drop outs enjoy the red carpet treatment in China for being white.
