    For all you haters and bashers, you guys have a lot of guts when you type and talk smack on the computer. Your hearts are full of envy, but lack elementary courage. You know nothing of my sister, yet you judge and criticize her as if you yourselves can even make it as far as she did. Liz is the first Cambodian person to achieve such an accomplishment, yet the only words you can express are criticisms and hate. Congradulations, I hope your crass remarks and condescending attitudes help boost your egos. The sad truth is, it’s just a reflection of your own frustrations and insecurities.

    This is my first time on this stupid forum and you guys disgust me with your comments. I would expect Cambodians to support each other since we all share the same dark past full of pain and sufferings, but the youth these days tend to easily forget the tribulations of the past. To forget where you came from is to denounce any honor or respect left from your heritage.

    How would you yourselves perform or let alone memorize the lyrics, even to a simple and stupid pop song, with two overbearing and hateful white girls hating on you right from the start because you were different and Asian. My sister was judged right off the bat when she randomly chose her fate with the group of “wicked Step-*!#@^es”. They turned on her even before she sang her first note or spoke her first word. Their goal was to defame her character and her chances to the next round because she has more talent than they can ever hope to attain. What you saw on the clips were her trying to defend herself. They didn’t show all the other nasty things those girls did to Liz or how they ostercized her from the choreography of the dance. My sister took the high ground when she told Paula that she messed up because of lack of sleep instead of the truth, which was that those two *!#@^es were playing unfairly in a “team” activity. No, she didn’t complain about being excluded from the group or how rude they were to her. Instead she kept it professional and that led to her dismissal. Yes, the competition is unfair if you’re a minority and you’re grouped with some *!#@^#*up chicks, but that’s life!

    The most sincere caption of who Elizabeth Pha is was when she looked into the camara and said, “I am a beautiful person.” If you ever have the privelige to meet my sister in person, you would hold your tongue before you start to make any kind of judgements. Based on what I’m reading in this “supportive” community, I wouldn’t let any of you come close to her within a 50 foot radius.

    Are all of you so naive that you assume racism and discrimination are no longer prevalent in 2005? Will it make you sleep more peacefully to be oblivious to the fact that Asians still don’t have a voice yet in the media? We are the only minority left that still does not have adaquate representation.

    Antagonizing and berating my baby sister will only make you look more ignorant if you can’t see the truth of the situation.

    With that said, open your eyes if you want to see the truth. Support your fellow Khmers if you want self-empowerment.

    I dont think anybody was attacking her. They just saw what was put on TV. The fact is, she cant a remember a few lines. She shouldnt let those girls discourage her. This is life, nobody wants others to be better than them. That’s exactly what those two girls did, and they did well. YOu sister fall into their traps, letting their remarks get to her. People will do anything to f*** you over. In the game of fame and fortune, it’s not as easy as you see on TV. There are many obstacles go through. You sister let others affect her performance and abilities.

    YEs I’m happy to see asian making it to the media. I hope she didnt take this event in her life negatively. Learn from her mistakes, failures only makes you strongers and be more aware. You fall and come back straigh up. YOu gotta take a few criticism and punches to make it anywhere in life.

    I wish her very well and do the best she can do.

    ucha,
    i think what you said is very just.

    the thread is about pity, and whatever patriostism.
    i think asians are as popular as other races.

    it is a game. some lose, some win. you just gotta play it good.

    People were judging her of what they know and saw. I’m sorry if they did not show all the clips of what they did to her and not know the whole truth, but none-the-less, it’s what the people saw, and people will be quick to judge. Your sister can take this as a experience and move on, and for everyone that seen your sister perform, they will have opinions about her. Some good, some bad, and there will be those who support her.

    Just look for the support, but learn from the critism. You don’t become the best being upset and sad.
