Activism within capitalism and radical forms of activism work together to form the diverse, multifaceted platoon of activism that we need to actually make change. There has to be good-cop AND bad-cop activists.

Actors of color are often hyped for a bit then forgotten about, but we gotta remember that to make real progress in representation we gotta keep hyping Asian talent after they breakthrough.

Awesome, congrats! If you ever need a Hmong grad community, there’s a lot of folks out in MN and WI (come visit us for AAAS in April!) and folks doing Hmong American Studies too ❤️

Right. And what I'm saying is we can parse each of these factors separately without needing to universally celebrate OR condemn. Hot takes are so reductive!

I do think it's being held to a very high standard, bc we know racism at the micro-level (like in media representations!) sustains and reinforces macro-level systemic oppression. But the critiques can easily veer into the unreasonable, and I do see that somewhat here.

Each kind of interpretation helps us better make sense of this rich and multifaceted event for Asian American media, and I hope we can keep unpacking it together for a long time to come.

So I’m happy to see people considering the movie at every level, these are all valid and important ways of understanding what it means. We don’t need to formulate one specific stance and get up in arms about how there is only one correct way to view the movie.

There’s analysis of the way the film uses music and visual effects, the portrayal of queerness, the racial politics of accent, its relation to the book. All important to think about, and fun to assess!
