Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana

Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.

100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.

I want to be friends with her!

i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism. 

all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out. 

here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:

from top to left to right:

KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔,APPLE 蘋果,ONION 洋蔥,GRAPE 葡萄,CHAIR 椅子,TOMATO 番茄

traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.

it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”

lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english. 

she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english. 

just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries. 

let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.

this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day. 

if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?

i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay. 

i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media. 

as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world. 

feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality. 

You can at least wait to see the movie before saying those things. I’m not saying they are false, and yeah, the utilisation of random chinese word is a criticable error, but the scene when she shoot the guy ? You don’t know. It’s totally out of context like everything you see in a trailer, you can’t make any conclusion. Plus, maybe Lucy is not as good as you think they want her to appear. Maybe she is bad, evil, we don’t know (and from what I’ve seen she is not cclean at all but pretty violent but again, I base my opinion on a 2 minutes long trailer…

"Here you go, Hollywood. Here’s ten dollars so I can see if this is racist."

*is still racist within context because the entire misrepresentation of Taiwan as a crime hellhole is in of itself racist*

"This movie is racist, even within the context of the movie. I’m glad I paid ten dollars to find out."

People who comment defending this fucking movie just fucking blow my mind. A shitton of people complaining about this movie are actually Taiwanese and yes, as a friend of mine said, THE WHOLE POINT OF TRAILERS IS SO WE CAN JUDGE THE MOVIE AND SEE WHETHER IT’S WORTH WATCHING OR NOT.

Taiwan is so INCREDIBLY strict about gun control, any single act of violence would BLOW UP all over the news. A mass killing at the MRT (no guns involved) was on the news for days. Fuck, a Taiwanese fisherman was shot in the Philippines—he wasn’t even IN Taiwan and the news spread out to so many diasporic Chinese channels. Whenever something violent happens in Taiwan or concerning Taiwanese people, it WILL blow up on the news, and PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IT ENDLESSLY.

Taiwan is NOT a crime-ridden country, it is in fact MUCH safer than the US where a school shooting will make it into one column of the newspapers maybe if we can be bothered. The fact that Hollywood just didn’t CARE about our country and thought showing people that shooting someone who was a native to a non-English speaking country BECAUSE HE COULDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH is horrific enough, the fact that you’re defending it shows how much you really don’t give a shit.
