So, we were watching The King and I this weekend and I forgot how absolutely freaking racist it is. Like, argh, they just think that anyone who looks “racial” is good enough. So the people playing the Thais include East Asians, Caucasians, Hispanics, and Indians. And like, the accent is so freaking racist. And then the basic idea – that this white woman, by being “true” to herself, saves this backwards society. Anger.
I wish a movie would come out that portrays the truth. That truth being that Asian males are legitimate (in fact ideal) symbols of masculinity.
