Orientalism

I don't get it, I wanna state that I'm from Pakistan and grew up in a community that was very proud of its self, we see ourselves as our ethnic group and everybody else is an outsider
Said just comes as a across as a whiny self hating cunt and applies that whiny cunt nature towards everyone outside Europe, the man knew aboustetly nothing about the middle east, south asia or the muslim world, he was a white radlib(culturally) who had the luck of having ethnic heritage to justify his basis

    It's just usual diaspora bullshit. Ignore.

    You're right
    Orientalism is a book wholly devoid of content, at no point does it correct any mistake or critique any analysis or go beyond the platitude "power relations influence understanding"

      I've always found it super hilarious that apparently in order to decolonize, you have to spend 8+ years in an elite, English language university and learn a bunch of nonsense in order to lecture to "Europeans" (assuming they are a monolith group) about said nonsense in English and then get mad when ESL / non-English-speaking Euro normies don't understand a thing of what you're saying.

        Fun fact:

        They literally had to invent a word for whiteness in my country.

        Also it is the white man's burden to decolonize other races
        Brown South-Americans must be taught about how they are actually ''light-skinned blacks'' (A retarded term that only exists because of US segregation laws)
        In mixed countries the ''decolonization'' ideology is hostile to the local culture since it sows division and wants to purge all evil Hispanic elements to create a black indigenous utopia

    It's the usual academic idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing. The funniest thing is how much Arabs have happily consoomed orientalist motifs and cherish it, and yet you'd have some secular homosexual going
    >NOOOOO YOU CAN'T ENJOY BELLYDANCERS

    You present the orient as similar to us but different and you'll have some grifter like Said charging you as refusing to recognize their distinct qualities.
    You present the orient as different to us on a fundamental level and you get a grifter like Said.

    At the end of the day the butthurt is very often the same you see from chargers of colonization and appropriation - it's people who are mad that they aren't the one successful so they get mad at someone who did.

    What was the name of the Indian guy who said how a lot of post-colonial literature is just upper non-Europeans being treated the same they treat those lower them in their own nations

      They're treated better than that. It's that they aren't treated as the special elites they believe themselves to be.

    What exactly is wrong with orientalism? Is it the sex tourism it inspired?

    It's always interesting to see non whites living in Europe lecturing Europeans about 'decolonisation'

      99% of the time it's them bitching and begging for tax funded positions so they can tell taxpayers how evil they are and how they should be importing more foreigners.

      They unironically think the shit they come up with is valuable to anyone other than the bored old white women that supervised them.

    I'm more interested in the adoption of orientalist motifs by the orientals themselves.

    What he's discussing in "Orientalism" is an actual discipline of "Orientalism" that existed in Europe in the 19th century. It's a history book that people mistake for a political manifesto.
