This is the second public suicide of a half-Asian in one month.
Imagine if something was true: i.e., that half-Asians are born from Asian women who believed Asian men to be inferior, that integration was integral to a life of happiness, and give birth to half Asian sons who get bullied, consistently reminded by their own immediate families of their low self worth, and yet people refused to admit this could potentially be disastrous for their young sons because it would mean they had to deprive themselves of pleasure. How predictable.
Growing up in the tiny town of St. John’s, Wagoner, who was half-Asian, experienced bullying and racial discrimination as a child and teen at St. John’s High School, according to his family.
Still, when Thomas got to ASU, he seemed to thrive, Carey says.
“When he got to college, I asked him if he was still experiencing discrimination,” Carey says. “He said, ‘Once I got to ASU, I wasn’t a minority anymore. So I’m not discriminated against anymore.’”
Maybe not, but maybe he realized that like his mother, the majority of Asian women refused to see Asian men as human beings; a brutal nihilistic truth shoved into his face.
Well done, folks.
