So You Think You Are Racist
July 30, 2013 § Leave a comment
As So You Think You Can Dance keeps rolling along, I’d like to point out the racist garbage that turned me off of the show a couple years ago. This blatant fetishizing and objectification of the Asian female is sexist in addition to being racist. The number of compliments that this dance received online (click through to see the Youtube comments) only highlights that American society largely condones this stereotype.
Because you have to know it’s a stereotype, right, America? You can’t actually think that Asian women are like this. Oh, yeah. You also think they fight with swords all the time.
You might “Think You Can Dance,” but you’re actually just racist.
