    @STFU: You STFU. Naya is American. I am certain she is aware of her poetry. Even if she wasn’t what is wrong with remembering an important figure? Absolutely nothing.

    @STFU: You should STFU, just because we all dont know Maya Angelou personally doesnt mean we cant find it sad that she passed, or that we dont care or that we all are fake. She is an important writer for many. Do you know all authors you read personally? I doubt it, so STFU.

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, it works if you try enough!!! Also look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.
