Another one, bringing this year’s total tally up to 5, for 2016 alone; that is 5 incidents involving mixed race Asians in 2016 alone.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: people underestimate the mental trauma and damage that growing up in a racist household will do to you. There’s almost no way I can really quantify it other than saying it’s a combination of many different factors. They also underestimate the trauma of cultural confusion / self-hatred / colonialism / poor-fathering / aloofness from the parents / mother’s maladapted comments on whiteness and white features / psychosexual underpinnings from your parents, and the general state of mental illness among Asian American women that is inherited by their children.
This is all leading up to another major incident involving a Hapa child that will be very, very, very, very bad, and hopefully this blog will be in place to explain exactly why these incidents are occurring at the rate they do.
Let me say, when you’re at a point that you are unable to look at your own reflection in the mirror because you feel white, but people still dig into you, trying to pin you as Asian… your mind is not in the right spot.
Dorothy Dutiel shot and killed her girlfriend May Kieu before Kieu could break up with her. Dutiel then turned the gun on herself, committing suicide. The two girls were 15-year-old sophomores at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona. The horror unfolded there just before 8 a.m. on February 10. The couple had known each other since the 5th grade and begun dating in the 8th when Dutiel says she, “was too scared to verbally ask her. So I wrote it on a sticky note and she said yes.”
