  1. 23 april- how many people watched 60 minutes??? that was so cool.
    they talked about how chinese were like one of the 1st in new zealand even before most of the whites and how they had to put up with all the racism.
    it was quite funny really because as a 3st generation chinese i love the fact that there are so many of us now and we are kind of taking over -yes i said it- i love it. fuck you kkk!!!. its kind of like a little revenge on them white assholes who did all those terible thing to my people back in the days.
    ahahah yellow is the new purple. don’t believe me: you should of seen it. and as they said on mike kings show “I’m more kiwi than you are!!!” :P . i can’t help but to think that in 300 years new zealand might just be like hong kong, indonesia, tailand, malasia etc where once they were places just like new zealand with their own indiginous people- they’re now all chinse but care not to admit it.-i myself don’t like calling myself chinese because i’m more of a new zealander a kiwi!- i’ve lived here all my life and when i went to china and saw how things are there and my family, im fucken proud and lucky: it sucks there!!! (from a new zealander point of view)- ask any chinese person: would they rather live here to there! oh back to the point and just to make it fair i am a little rasist to: i hate black people like my whole family especially the fresh members i kind of see why its so easy to be rasist for example: we hate indians: my uncle especially can’t stand them, they’re just so fucken ugly he says and they should go back to their own country- lol he says in mandrin “if you can’t fukem- send them packing”. i kind of have to agree with him there- but there is this one chick in my accounting class. i’d hit that!!!
    one thing i’ve learnt from all this is that haha! you german narzis shoud all die, french women should shave, and jews should just accept you killed the messiah you are still looking for.
    CHINESES RULEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! nah we really do- theres more of us than you lol!
