Look what she wrote in that blog post above. Dang. She sounds totally corrupted and soulless.

Hi Zach. What kind of Asian is Pouchprom? hahahahahahahahah. Is this a real email or are you pranking me? I can’t tell.

We may be from the same generation however, I come from a family that knows how to laugh. Laugh at people like you. Guys who feel it is important to write me this email that place me in the same category as Bobby Lee. Thanks! I’ve been trying to let him open for him at Caroline’s for years. Would you mind if I used your email as a letter of reference?

Stop trying to blame me for having grown up in the south! Your parents were the retarded ones who moved to the south. Mine went straight to Chicago with several other families so that their children could form a gang and stick with each other from kindergarten. I don’t know what you’re talking about. In our school, the Asians were the ones doing the punching. Every time my brother punched a hole in the wall, we covered it up with a painting that translated to “harmonyâ€￾ or “loveâ€￾. Everybody was scared of the Asians in my school. You didn’t mess with the Yang’s, the Yoon’s, and definitely not the Ku’s. What I feel you maybe doing is projecting your regrets of not being able to stand up to your bullies onto me. And I refuse to stand for it.

So you’re complaining that Hollywood has been oppressing Asian men for a mere 100 years? Compared to the thousands of years that Asian women have been oppressed by their male counterparts? Then sign me up Hollywood! It’s reparations time! You guys have bound our feet, demanded hot food, clean clothes, polished nails, cute babies and happy endings for centuries. Get the f**k out of here. You’re lucky we’re not doing more damage. Oooh did we hurt your feelings? Wait. Let’s work this out the old fashioned way. Why don’t you give me your mom’s phone number and I’ll have my mom call your mom and yell at her for raising a six foot two hundred pound slanted p***y.

Is it also my fault that the audiences are predominately non-Asian? Man that’s a good point. We should market to more Asians. Can you help out? There’s a position for barker open at Stand-Up NY. I can totally get you a job so we can get that quota for Asians to match the current demographics of the US population.

Am I that desperate for fame? You think I’m famous? Yay! If you come to a show, I promise to take a picture with you afterward. Then you can tell people you met me and they will be impressed for moment if I am indeed as famous as you say I am.

So when I have my son, are you saying I should be a PTA mom? Because don’t worry I would never join the PTA. When I have kids, I will be at home with my snugly bong and be wondering if little Jimmy from Occidental College ever graduated with a degree in Bio after I helped him with his anatomy assignment.

You keep referencing me and Bobby Lee in the same sentence. Do you think we should go on tour together? Cuz that’d be so much fun! Who do you think should drive? Me or Bobby?

Hollywood tells us that Asian men are silly excitable fools? I don’t think anybody thinks that. Ever. hahahahah. Which is why Bobby Lee has a career. Don’t you get it man? He’s fighting the stereotype that you help perpetuate: the awfully boring, dorky nerd who takes himself way too seriously and whose parents thought it’d be a good idea to move in with a bunch of hillbillies.

You stop it Mr. Pouchprom. Seriously are you even Asian or are you half or something? Is your dad a pervert who only gets off on Asian porn? ew.

It is hard to make it in show biz and that’s why I want to thank you for writing this letter because I think you’ve helped me seal the deal to become the next Kim of Comedy.

Sincerely,
Esther Ku

It's not her attitude that surprises everyone. It's that she says it out that openly on a public stage. I've never seen anyone horribly mock Asian men like that openly in public. No one does that. It's unprecedented.

I think maybe she was trying to create shock value and controversy to obtain fame and help boost her acting/comedy career. But it backfired.

She's obviously a media whore and was trying to get famous by generating controversy. It seems like it backfired because the white mainstream was uncomfortable with her schtick and the asian community turned on her. I remember hearing about her briefly when this all happened.

This woman came around in '07 when Ken Jeong was just getting big with his movie roles. It was obvious she was trying to do something similar except as an Korean-American female. Except her humor wasn't really self deprecating or funny as much as it was mean spirited and pathetic. It's apparent from her comments she's a gigantic head case (like a lot of American women asian or otherwise) though so it doesn't matter.

Here's what Ken Jeong was doing at around '06. He had balls of steel to go on a black comedy show and just tear it up.

What Esther Ku is doing isn't far from say, Dave Chappelle. But our tolerance of her self-depreciating humor is pretty thin these days.

Dave Chappelle gets away with portraying negative racial stereotypes on comedy TV, but as a Muslim convert, you'd probably never see him make fun of his religion. ;p


Making fun of otakus:

How's that? Making fun of white people trying to be Asian? ;p I used to date girls like that... the type you'd find in cosplay at anime cons, every other word is "sugoi!" or "kawaii!" and such.

There's a big difference between Esther Ku and Chappelle though. Chappelle is trying to poke fun at stereotypes and enlighten us about ignorance. A lot of his skits are really clever at making fun of celebrity, racism, etc.. like the black white supremacist or the race draft.

Esther Ku just engages in bashing. She's not even lampooning or making any interesting social statements her comedy is just a way for her to vent her own insecurities and nastiness at other asians.

That's why her audience tuned out. She's not a comedian she's someone who has a major chip on her shoulder and people saw right through that.

At least Blacks have some modicum of pride in their race unlike so many Asians these days. It takes a black chick to set this stupid Asian bitch straight.

Here's my theory. Koreans were colonized a lot (kind of like the Philippines) by both eastern and western powers. S. Korea itself is not a big country with a big population..only about 60 million people. Korea is developed. A lot of Korean-Americans' parents immigrated when Korea was really poor (60s-70s) so maybe there's a certain chip on a lot of S. Korean parents shoulder about "integrating" with white American culture.

It's not quite like Chinese people in America who have a very broad culture dispersed around SE Asia and in a large country like China. So most Chinese-Americans still have a pretty certain identity.

I guess the identity for Koreans in the U.S. was less certain.

As a Korean American male let me put forth my theory about why some Korean American girls have that chip on their shoulder. I don't know about the Philippines .

Repatriate is on the right track. South Korea or Korea as a whole is sandwich between China and Japan. Through out history Korea has been attacked by both countries..more so from Japan. This in turned made Koreans ultra-nationalistic. ( So for those of you wondering why Koreans are so nationalistic now you know why. )

When the Korean immigrated to America. The first generation had a tough time integrating in American culture and the house hold is pretty traditional. Plus Korean fathers who are first generation tend to be unemotional and more the type that just work . Korean fathers are not too different from other first wave immigrant fathers..where it was traditional for the man to work and the woman being the home maker. But what sets Korean fathers apart vs other first wave immigrants is the way we look.

With Korean girls I think their first relationship with a Korean man is the father. I know for me I had a tough relationship with my father because he is hard to talk to. So did my sister. So you have a Korean girl who might not connect with her Korean father...but so what. I mean there is allot of white families like that too.

The difference is the exposure to western culture. Korean girls start comparing white men to Korean men from what they see around them. And yes the first exposure is TV. My sister would watch TV soap operas or day show and think white guys were more sensitive and better looking. In comparison to Korean men..the problem was there just was not enough good example of Korean men around. ( although this is changing with the internet and the rise of k-pop)

And in high school or college it;s much easier for the korean girl . So guess what for some Korean girls they might date a white guy at first . Some of these Korean girls are still not happy. You could say Asian women in general because they date white guys for the wrong reason. These Asian girls lack something ..and think that by having a white lover it will full fill that but usually it is not full filled. On top of that some of these white guys who date Asian women tend to date them because of Asian fetish.

They date white guys because they think by dating a white guy it makes them equal or accepted or American. In essence it's like the ugly kid trying to join the pretty crowd. Thinking if he is accepted everything is cool but he is still an ugly kid.

So what happens the ugly kid starts hating his ugliness. This is more or less what happens to Asian women. Some of them resent their Asian heritage. They are not going to come out and say it..but it's deep seated insecurity . So when they see an Asian men...watch out Asian men your going to get spiked.

The sad part is that I really think only an Asian American man can truly understand an Asian American woman. Some of these Asian American women get upset because their white lover doesn't understand them..not in the deep sense...and at the same time these Asian American women are kind of lost which makes them angry ..they channel their anger at Asian men.

It's like a weird hatred..kind of like you have black on black crime. I mean I remember reading somewhere that some black on black crime is committed because of self hatred.

^^^

That's a great sociological breakdown of AA issues. I totally agree and you hit the nail on the head. I talked with some African-American friends about this before and they said there are black women who are like this too. They have a lot of self hatred and they only date lighter skinned (high yellow) black people. Some of them try not to date black people at all..like a lot of black men who go white.


Plus mainstream stereotypes just exacerbates these issues and magnifies them even more. I imagine things would be different if the U.S. were not so inherently bigoted towards minority groups. However, the reason why Asian men are put down all the time and why black men are stereotyped in a certain way too is how the mainstream disenfranchises men from other minority groups. There's a real social agenda there that's borderline eugenics. If you make minority men distinctly "unattractive" to all other female groups then they don't take "your" women. That's the way a lot of American men think a lot of times and you can tell that's how it is.

It's all very ugly IMO. I'm kind of glad I haven't lived in America for a long time now to put up with this stuff.

Repatriate,

I envy that you live in Thailand if I am correct. I mean every country has their issues but at least in Asia if your an Asian man your still a man. For me I'm stuck in NYC because of work and other responsibilities . I am trying to see if I can move overseas. Started to research online business ..really that;s the key for me. I have to be able to make money in order to make that move. I don't see myself teaching ESL and yes I have my family to deal with. I'm not married but when your Korean..it's like everything is close knit. My parents ..actually it's little bit my fault because I enabled my parents to control me in way.
