Note: Angry Asian Man did not ask me to write this commentary. The former/following is entirely justajae material.
What do Americans think of when they hear the word "Asian"? The answer to this question used to be, what? A nerd. Small, with skinny arms and thin eyes. Pants raised to the chest with glasses that were too big. Seeing someone like this, people would say "Wow, so Asian." ... WHAT? Right?
Why are Asians labeled as this effeminate, weak figure? It's because they are a threat. A silent threat. The model minority.
Now, thanks to this sort of Asian-American movement, this silent threat has become very much verbal. If Angry Asian Man has taught me anything, it has taught me that sometimes, we need to be angry. :) And also to "Keep it real with the rice fields."
