From the Informed Parents of Washington… click here to see their original post.
A Seattle area MIDDLE school in Issaquah, Washington, assigned their students to read and discuss a vile racist poem by someone named Joe Limer. Issaquah is a very affluent suburb sharing a border with Redmond, the home of Microsoft, and has a large Asian population. Issaquah is also the international headquarters for Costco.
Read through these lyrics and then watch the video of the whole poem. What would YOU do if your children brought this assignment home? Did I mention this is from a MIDDLE school assignment? (Be aware, some vile lyrics)
“I mean, how insecure are you, White Hollywood,
When diversity means placing Asian males,
In asexual supporting roles,
“Never getting the girls.
I mean, I get it, you don’t need Viagra,
You can suck your own dick because you get a colonized erection
“Every single time you cast Asian women
As love interest sex slaves.
See, you tell society, white person saves me
By pushing me out of harm’s way.”
Here is the short video of the author of the poem doing the entire poem (be aware, some vile lyrics):
