"asian" is an american thing. She's CHINESE.
Yeoh is also lame and they put her in fucking everything. She's constantly miscast into roles just because she's the most well known (in America) Chinese actress. The fact that she's old is seen as a plus for libtards since they want to play against the "old women cant get roles" thing.
THANK YOU. I hate getting lumped in with the brown people just because white Liberals want to feel inclusive. The Chinese have been fighting the Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese for thousands of years. They look the same because they're all the same genes, different nationality. Don't lump their racial grievances with the Indians and Pakis. It's disrespectful.
I intentionally call everyone in the mix asian. Don’t take it personally but if I’m “Caucasian/ White” then you’re Asian.
White is an American thing. For the same reasons.
That's so incredibly incorrect.
It's more than American.
The Right: "She's Chinese! Say it!"
The Left: "That's racist! All those asians look the same and act the same!"
Basically, yes. But you're not going to miss very far if you call every Asian-looking dude Chinese. You have what, a 80-90% chance of getting it right?
There are good reasons for that. We don't want to see old women playing anything except old women.
Yeoh wasn't lame back in the day when she was jumping on trains in Jackie Chan movies, but her time is up. Every role she's miscast in now was a loss for someone better. So Inclusive!
It's the same shit as most of the metoo actresses. They're trying to pull the rope up behind d them.
yep. they love to throw "asian" in there like we all supposed to stick together as asians. rofl. asians hate other asians, or think they are superior over other asians.
by using "asian" they trying to unite asians against oppressors.
It's because of who she is married to
"CHINESE" is a non-Chinese thing. She's MALAYSIAN CHINESE.
No. "Chinese" is a reference to either the nationality, or the ethnicity. Here it is a reference to the ethnicity, which is Han.
Michelle Yeoh is Han Chinese. Both her parents are Han.
She's clearly not though. That eye is way too round.
Never seen her eat a dog.
So who is the previous Asian Best Actress Nominees they're erasing to have a "first?"
Merle Oberon in 1935. "But she doen't count because she was only "of Asian decent, reeeeeee"
Fine. If gender is fluid then race can be. Every white applicant can be race fluid until affirmative action goes away.
I thought race was still considered non-mutable.
Oli London has entered the chat.
Oh wow he regretted it?
I'm not gonna watch an hour of this guy can you gimmie the tldr what he's regretting? The surgery or white guilt of cultural appropriating Korean culture as a white man?
The surgery. His whole interview is about how he regrets the steps he took, and that he's glad that he didn't go further with his transition. He says that people should be able to do what they want with their own lives, but that the indoctrination of children through avenues like TikTok is wrong.
Is TikTok worse than reddit for cults that groom children into self harm?
I feel too old to check it out.
I think so, because it's a more easily accessible platform with quick 15-60 second snippets that people can easily get sucked into. The format capitalizes on the inability, or unwillingness, to consume long-form content. TikTok's ease or access means more people have the ability to put their degeneracy on display. Its accessibility also means it's easier to consume degeneracy. Younger people see this vast availability of degenerate content and mistakenly believe that behavior is healthy or socially acceptable. Reddit has its uses in pushing The Message ™️, though.
Is that guy real?
I love how racist Pedowood has become in their old age.
Did Linda Hunt identify as Asian when she won for playying Billy Kwon?
They undo themselves.
So there was a different Asian that was nominated as best actress, but that person didn't identify as such?
