It’s been a rough stretch for Asians in America and it just keeps getting worse.
The American dream of leaving one’s country to come to America in search of a more prosperous life is supposed to be for everyone.
Yet these Asians coming to America have been victimize by corporations in what can only be called attempted genocide.
It all started with the release of Doctor Strange a Disney/Marvel film which decided to divert from the source material and change one of its main characters known as The Ancient One.
In the comics The Ancient One was an old Asian man from what is now known as Tibet. In the movie it is a bald Celtic woman played by Tilda Swinton.
Of course these corporations own the rights to these characters and are allowed to do with them as they please.
And according to them, these changes were made not as some sort of racist whitewashing of the film but in fact the opposite is true, this was a racially sensitive whitewashing.
“The Ancient One in the comics is a very old American stereotype of what Eastern characters and people are like, and I felt very strongly that we need to avoid those stereotypes at all costs,” director Scott Derrickson said.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also shared his racial sensitivity,
“I think if you look at some of the early incarnations of the Ancient One in the comics, they are what we would consider today to be quite, sort of, stereotypical. They don’t hold up to what would work today.”
Then of course there is this quote from screenwriter C. Robert Cargill who apparently thinks its ridiculous we don’t see how racially sensitive he’s being,
“The Ancient One was a racist stereotype who comes from a region of the world that is in a very weird political place. He originates from Tibet, so if you acknowledge that Tibet is a place and that he’s Tibetan, you risk alienating one billion people who think that that’s bullshit and risk the Chinese government going, ‘Hey, you know one of the biggest film-watching countries in the world? We’re not going to show your movie because you decided to get political.’”
Don’t you SJWs realize how racially insensitive it would be for him to “acknowledge that Tibet is a place”?
So clearly the death of the Asian Ancient One is not only justified, it’s racially sensitive.
