Receipts, receipts, we got em, quite literally. Here are four receipts which have gone public via internet in the recent past:

  1. “Ching” and “Chong” — That’s what Chick-Fil-A labelled two UC Irvine students in December 2011. The image was posted on the internet, blogged on tumblr, and the offending employee named Lia got fired amid much defensive PR fluff from Chick-Fil-A.
  2. “Lady Chinky Eyes” — That’s how Papa John’s in New York City referred to Minhee Cho in January 2012. Cho tweeted the receipt, prompting Papa John’s to post on apology on its Facebook page and terminate the offending employee.
  3. “Chinx” — That’s how Hooters in Fresh Meadows, Queens, described Kisuk Cha and his girlfriend when they ordered wings and shrimp there in September 2012. Cha sued. The employee resigned and as far as I know the lawsuit is ongoing.
  4. “Ching Chong Lee” — That’s what CVS in New Jersey named Hyun Jin Lee in February 2013. Following Cha’s example, Lee has filed a lawsuit. CVS says the employee will be “counseled and trained”. 

They keep giving us these receipts and we’ll keep filing lawsuits. Let’s do this.

Always keep fighting.

  • what white feminists say:

    what the fuck is with dividing feminists into “white feminists” and whatever other fucking categories there are? That is the most ass-backwards and counter-productive shit I’ve seen in a long time. Haven’t we all realized that we need to work together and understand each other instead of constantly alienating one another? I get that some feminists don’t entirely recognize their privilege but saying shit like that is not going to make them want to understand and do better.

  • what white feminists mean:

    instead of wasting your time trying to make a safe inclusive space dedicated to your struggles (which we made necessary by excluding you in the first place), you should devote your energies to a movement created for my benefit. it doesn't matter if my movement excludes you and focuses only on my needs and tokenizes you and people like you, or if you experience racism from the people in my movement. once i get what i want from my movement, then you can talk about your needs and you can teach us how not to be racist (but we won't really care or listen because we got what we wanted)
