These Asian American clowns make me nuts.
Do you really think they’re going to cast an entire Hollywood movie with Thai actors??
Like that stupid Boat show, the family is supposed to be from Taiwan, but the dad is Korean-American, or Korean-American Harold from Harold & Kumar playing Sulu, who’s Nippoonese.
How is that not racially insensitive?
If you distill it down to its core reasoning, they’re literally going “It’s OK, because he’s got the same black hair and squinky eyes”, which is pretty friggin racist, man.
Most of the Taiwanese people I know don’t consider Koreans or Nipponesers to be any closer to them ethnically than Ed friggin Sheeran.
