My friends and I went to see the petronas towers the other day. I find tourist sites a bit overrated so I wasn’t too impressed with this sight. At the same time, I feel that I’ve seen a darker side of Malaysia that the modernization of the petronas tower cannot make up for.

I am in Malaysia for my friend li sian’s wedding. I attended her wedding yesterday. Her husband’s name is Jason and she was his math tutor in college before she transferred to the university of Wisconsin Madison (he went abroad too- to Australia). I knew Jason was pretty wealthy but yesterday I met his dad and it turns out Jason’s dad is the head of the American brand Tupperware in the southeast Asia region. Their would have been beautiful regardless of what they did since they’re a lovely couple but man, Jason’s dad went all out (he’s the youngest in the family and only boy). There were a thousand guests and we were at a really fancy hotel. As guests, we received snacks in a Tupperware jar to bring home. Haha.

Forgive me for my ignorance, but as a person of color who grew up in a low-income background I lack perspective on what happens when white youths drop out of high school. Do they face the same negative stigma that people of color do? Are they just as likely to end up incarcerated via the school to prison pipeline or be dependent on government support as many people of color are stereotyped for?

Real talk.

Freakonomics author Steven Levitt presents new data on the finances of drug dealing. Contrary to popular myth, he says, being a street-corner crack dealer isn’t lucrative: It pays below minimum wage. And your boss can kill you.”

The struggle continues even within the “social justice” movement where People of Color or Hmong people are marginalized from paid staff positions due to Institutional Racism and White Privilege. Tell me how you are not part of creating economic injustice?

"Isn’t it strange that consumers, itching to buy the newest tech gadget, will stand in line overnight, while, at the same time, our movies generally portray a tech-laden future that is bleak and dystopic? There is a telling disconnect."
