Today something unimaginable happened. I was walking on Washington ave bridge when I was stop in my tracked by a white male, who yelled at me to "Go back to Asia". I was in complete shock and disbelief. I honestly did not know what to say, but I pretended to not hear any thing and continue on walking since I didn't want to create conflict. Shortly after that moment, I was stopped by that same man who told me " Don't you know it's disrespectful to walk away from someone when they are talking to you?" I was in disbelief. I responded by saying don't you know it's disrespectful to talk to someone in that manner when they are obviously not interested in a conversation? Also for your information I am a U.S. Citizen, and if you want to play that card then you should go back to wherever you came from as well cause we are all immigrants and the only one who deserves to be here are the Native Americans. He avoided everything I had to say and called me ignorant, and told me that the only reason that I got into the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities was because of affirmative action. That struck a melting point in me, because I worked hard to get into this university, and chose to go here when I could have easily gone anywhere else of all the college that I was accepted to. I was so fed up with the conversation that I started to turn around and was about to begin walking when all of a sudden

I felt someone grab me by the wrist and pull me around. It was the same guy, and at this point I was done. I told him that he needed to let go of my wrist, and that this was not okay for him to touch me like that. He avoided my reasonable request and made fun of the fact that I couldn't get out of his grasp and laughed saying that I was " too easy". He then proceeded to tell me "I don't understand why you are walking away from me when I am trying to have a conversation with you. I told you that its rude and you should listen to me cause I know a lot more than you do." At this point I literally could not handle the amount of ignorance and white privledge that this guy had, so I told him that he literally has exactly one minute to let go of me before it gets serious and someone will get injured and it won't be me. He took my warning as a joke, and said " okay, lets fight then, you can't beat me anyways look at how small and shrimpy you are", and he actually dared to (continued)

and he actually dared to punch me ( more than once). Things got serious really quick cause kathy doesn't mess around with that stuff. Before he could attack me again I used my self defense skills and got out of the hold he had on my wrist and punched him straight up in the throat ( Which honestly I am not apologetic for what so ever). His friends who were watching the entire situation go down saw that I was going to the win fight and came over to his rescue and accused me of assaulting him and called the police. The police who came did not listen to my side of the story what so ever because the man that assaulted me had "witnesses" ( which were his friends). I was handcuffed and was waiting for the police to check my information, which of course came out clean because I am a law abiding citizen. Then the police proceeded to un cuff me and was warning me and talking about all this police jargon. I was so flabbergasted that this is the reality that we are in. As I was walking home, after the situation having people stare at me and knowing I might be a meme or have someone take a photo of me accusing me of doing something I haven't I am in disbelief.

At first I was really upset, but now I am really grateful that he did that to me. It gave me an opportunity to speak up. Here is my final statement to you sir. I am sorry that you are threatened by me and my presence and are so afraid of me that you had to succumb to this. But thank you, because of this situation you have relit a burning passion in my soul about why I need to make my voice heard, and offer that same support to my fellow Asian Americans, LGBT community, People of Color, and the oppression you have placed upon us.

People Describe The Absolute Laziest Things They've Ever Done

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

People Explain Which Things Are Stupidly Overpriced

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
