After listening to this video, my opinions are
As a half #Chinese and half almost every other ethnic background who grew up in #NewJersey going to various boroughs in #NewYorkCity, #Pittsburg, #Philadelphia, and other areas I cannot relate to the video to be quite honest with you whomever might read this. As a half Chinese and half of almost each other ethnic background who was raised throughout those areas and never accepted as a child by my own ethnic background, because of being only half. As well as not being accepted in the traditional ways by any groups because of as I was told that lack of pure blood in the Chinese portion, though the mix of other ethnic backgrounds as well. In the east coast you are either one full ethnic background, or you are considered lesser than; at minimum, that was how it was explained to me by several. While my cousin's Grandmother who I was told her name to call her was Grandmawmaw and her husband Grandpawpaw treated me more like family than my own ethnic backgrounds in regards of the groups overall with the exception of my Great Grandparents and my maternal Grandfather, after my Great Grandparents introduced me to who my Aunt had married and the family she married into was when some acceptance began of me. While my cousin Jade's dad and extended family lived in the borough of #Harlem as well as their cousins were in some of the areas I grew up hanging out in which also was when I was started to begin being accepted as myself by some people, though I know Jade also had dealt with certain similar aspects because of the mixture; as there are those who have similar experiences for such, because of whatever mixture there is involved. My biological father who is the 1st generation Chinese was raised in foster care and orphanages in multiple areas in the east coast region that I grew up going to and spending time within those neighborhoods he had been in, which possibly assists my view in regards of not having one in reference to the ways most seem to. In some ways that might also be why I view the different individuals I have met in such a way, in comparison to what the stereotype is for the so-called normal. I doubt I am the only one who has such a view of various people, though I also would guesstimate such would have to do with the upbringing.
I related personally more toward Regina in the video because of the name calling, the treatment, the comments about my tone of voice, and the automatic assumption especially after my tattoos and my hairstyle because of my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury after effects; not forgetting how some have automatically thought just because of my tattoos some thought I am dirty comparatively, to those who do not have as many tattoos showing. As a side note, I really wish I could have hair similar to hers as the twists remind me of some who Grandmawmaw introduced me to and allowed to do stuff to my hair in reference to extensions and color choices for streaks. However returning to the points in reference to when taking into consideration of not being a full blood in either sector when I was in school as well as not being allowed to watch tv the way they did in conjunction with having a bedtime and being kept away from others, I had nothing to relate to anyone with in a larger way at the time. However I also relate more towards Regina because of the technology aspect as my biological mother had me working on coding for her while she did #IT work at the company, and few in my school knew what I was dealing with as well as the amount of coding work I had already done. Being a female in the 1980s with the full ability to code #IBM, #DOS, #McIntosh, #Apple, and #Microsoft computers in elementary school was ironically not looked highly upon during those times. As a child after one of my bestest of friends died in a car accident, the only main best friend I could spend time with daily was my dog. Unlike some, I was not encouraged to go out to spend time with others and was not encouraged to get involved with different groups. I was either told that was what I was going to be a part of, or I was simply sent away to not be a bother to what everyone else was doing. I suppose in some ways the irony of how certain portions have been in conjunction of being told and asked what could I ever amount to accomplish, as there were very few who were in my corner. As per certain situations, the amount of people I could count on in my life quickly dwindled away as life had been what it had been. I did as best as I could to do the opposite for my son and my daughter as well as others I had involved in my life, though each has had the situations which have been as they have been.
However I did relate to each in reference to expectations, view points when walking into a store, and much more throughout my life as discussed by the individuals in the video speaking.
Since I do not look Chinese as well as being a female in the 1980s then there is the additional portion of others wondering how could I of anyone be able to code, and the continuation of multiple aspects since. I have dealt with racism and discrimination as well as sexism the majority of my life despite what some might automatically assume when simply looking at me in reference to whatever words anyone would prefer to use or say. That has continued onward including in multiple other areas and aspects of my life throughout the years, though I hoped would not longer be that way for me as well as others for so long; well before my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury, as I knew several with various backgrounds of multiple types. There are only a small handful of times where I have not been discriminated against and those few times where I was not discriminated against has and had nothing to do with living humans, in a larger proportion of such a reference. I do not deny the fact certain situations have gone on, though I also do not deny the fact there are more than just a handful of whichever group or stereotyping which breaks such molds of stereotyping. The amount of annoyances from games some have thought to play in reference to my life has been a complete annoyance additionally, especially after my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury in conjunction with after my #SCUBADiving and other situations thereof.
It would be fantastic if the honesty were actually real beyond just simply myself though I have rarely come across those who were 100% honest with me at all times, and were actually living human beings. Again, usually not in reference to all living humans who have done so. However that lying and backstabbing has gotten old, extremely quickly. What would be new and refreshing is pure honesty, in comparison to the games others have thought would wrongly be a good idea.
Just because I am honest does not mean I do not have feelings, though somehow that does not seem to genuinely to translate to others as it comes across. Nonetheless despite the situations I have gone through as grotesque as they have been I still hold onto hope for the reality of such truths to come forward and clear the way, so others do not have to deal with what I have dealt with. Then again those who seem to think emotions are a game to be played also have a rude awakening when they themselves learn such has been done to them, especially when they realize they do not know who had done so to them who were the starting point of such. Personally it disgusts me how many have been for so long thinking such is considered as acceptable when in reality if they saw the truth of what they have done they would not be able to look at themselves in any way, shape, or form. Especially in reference to the games they play with others non-consensually which in turn means they play games with their own selves and do not have the ability to realize doing so creeps into their psyche, and then the karmic response is when realizing they have played so many games with so many others whether consensually or not; they have to open their eyes to that truth because living in denial would mean the lack of awareness, though they are completely aware. I doubt I am the only one at this point, despite what various media portions show or discuss to show.
Life though there is the childhood board game which in reality life is not an actual game, as those game pieces do not have emotions and feelings the way natural to the living. That board game which was/is boring in my opinion though in such actually shows how humans are looked at by others throughout the universe for their choices thus far in different aspects, as simple little pieces of pegs which are nothing notable unless there is a reason to stand out. While I am not saying there are not those who stand out as there are, it is the context of which they stand out which is of the importance aspects which the reflection of brings forward. If there ever comes a day which such is recognized by outside of the galaxy for such an ignition to reevaluate whether to go one way or another, human beings better start preparing themselves and rectifying such behaviours as soon as possible. That is unless all of the people on earth prefer to be kept in a corner outside of the proverbial sandbox, until they can grow up and acclimate to the way the universe works. Hypothetically those on earth have been kept at bay as much as others have chosen to keep some at bay because of such behaviours, and though some could wish moving to another planet would prevent the proverbial pool stick from engulfing all; that is not the case for this time around, as this is the last shot hypothetically. There have been far too many chances given to those prior to this planet and if the choices are not rectified fairly quickly, it is futile to bother and is wasted time and energy. That proverbial reset button has been pushed before time and time again of which at this point, it is the proverbial saying of s*** or get off of the pot. It might come across as cold and crass, though it is the reality.
Truth can hurt, though through such truth can also heal. Abrupt truth is meant to sting you and awaken you to the realities to genuinely work towards a better future in comparison to it just being a saying, for some. When the truth hits sometimes as the proverbial saying of a ton of bricks, then is when you need to reevaluate and recalibrate in a smaller way in reference to your immediate surroundings and in a larger way as to the greater population if you have the capability to; or as far as you are able to reach, for that reevaluation to be more well known to lead others in such reevaluations to revolutionize how the forward progress moves because in order to step outside of the proverbial sandbox corner the proof of self-sustaining on the earth must be reached first. I am not writing everything will be all kumbyah in every way, though as close to possible is a reality. Other planets in other galaxies have gone through different portions and each has had to prove themselves as well prior to being allowed to go in different directions around and into other galaxies, because of the necessity for the peaceful balance. Despite some thinking there are other species which would prefer to destroy, there are only those who regulate to ensure the rest of the universe is kept safe. It is not a meanness factor, it is more of a protective measure for those who have progressed in a multitude of ways. The irony of not being an older version of a stereotype for a hippy, the reality of certain portions
In my opinion that boring game as well as the droll sorts of situations were only a small preparation for the realities throughout which needed to be overcome for the betterment of each, and though some have thought what ideals are in such are the actual ideals for real life; such does not prepare for such realities in each day, which in turn gives those who thought life was a game a false sense of reality. Though realistically the closest portion of how some think and have thought life to be a game wrongly, have misunderstood the purpose for life itself. In turn the chemical responses in the brain have been triggered in specific ways and how to reprogram ones' own mind takes the fortitude to withstand such to step back and realize, which in turn means the way to such is not the way through gaming though through embracing life and looking towards the genuine betterment of.
The reality in #SCUBA Diving when taken seriously is not a game either because of the reality the ocean chooses whether or not you are allowed to leave the ocean alive or otherwise, by your choice or by a bag. The ocean does not judge you because of your ethnic background, your sexuality, your gender, or anything other than whether or not you are allowed to be a part of it for some time or permanently; and how you are a part of such in any situation, is solely up to the ocean itself in conjunction with your ability in certain references. If the ocean chooses to allow you to live, then you should be thankful and grateful for such. If the ocean chooses not to allow someone to live, then there are reasons for such; whatever those reasons are, stand in regards of the ocean and the individual(s) involved. In certain references the same is to be said or written in reference to space, as you will be allowed to live or you will not; depending on a multitude of reasons, depends as to what your fate is. There is not any games played when going into the ocean, as the waters are a brutal force not to be tested and not to be reckoned with because even the most well studied can succumb to the powers of the ocean; which in turn means you treat the ocean with respect not only because of its power, though because it is where life is sustained. In such for a quick explanation without the ocean there is no weather and without the weather the plants on earth cannot grow to be fruitful, without the coral reefs to hold the land in place then there is not land as well as the coral reefs filter the water which flows through the land to create lakes and rivers for the ability to have the ability to feed the nutrients of the ocean through to the different areas people eat food and reside. The maintenance of the ocean is just as important as the sustenance the ocean gives. There is not a game involved and there are not the simplistic ways of such, though it is a fairly simple concept to understand from the knowledge of.
#Space similar to the ocean could not care in the slightest as to whatever background ethnically, gender, sexuality, religious or spiritual preference, and etcetera just as the ocean could not careless one way or another about such; to a certain extent of course as I would guesstimate there are those who have learned the hard way how rigorous the ocean can be, towards certain individuals who have done certain things. However the portions in reference and regards of the spatial aspects of such a way are a different set of topics, though there are some similar portions to the ways of the laws in reference to when going into specific territories around the universe. I can give the warning they do not play games in the way I have seen some do so, and while some have a warped sense of humor that is very different than playing games.
In such in reference to the video link, though I can relate to certain portions of which were described the main portions of which I can relate to is mainly along the negative treatments in different aspects from the various individuals describing their view points. I know what it is like to be stared at and even have security called to investigate whether or not I can even be in the store as what could someone who looks as I do afford to purchase anything, or another example of which what can someone who looks as I do know about any topic; just for a few reference points, while in addition to the exclusionary tactics some have chosen in regards of, because of their particular viewpoints. Coming to the conclusion for this particular journal blog entry in which I mentioned earlier in the posting above of those who have not discriminated against me such has been so in reference to mainly within the animal realms whether on land or in the water, the spirit realms, and oddly enough when taking into consideration of what occurred when I was in #Irving #Texas on the balcony one year as well as a few situations thereafter; those situations went far better in each way as they did not care as to what my physical appearance is nor required me to prove myself, as they were able to know to understand to comprehend who I am.
Thus such stereotyping of the background such as ethnicity or gender or sexuality is such a situation which has been proven to be a useless viewpoint to discriminate against and only seemingly causes more problems than the worth of, especially when looking towards moving and progressing forward in a variety of aspects and ways to improve.
