My school is doing Anything Goes as the spring musical. Anyone who knows the show knows that it’s loaded with anti-Asian racism. It’s worse in my school because even more white people are yellowfacing than written into the play and using offensive “Chinese” accents because my school is 99% white, think Breakfast at Tiffany’s. So all this is bad enough but I didn’t say anything to any of the theatre kids because I didn’t want to start drama but apparently people are spreading rumors that I said I’m boycotting it and that I’m complaining about it???? I literally haven’t said a single word and people are putting words in my mouth. They’re not wrong that I hate it because it’s racist but I literally didn’t say ANYTHING.
My white friend tells me I am lucky to be Asian because then I will not be called a weeb if I read manga or watch anime. I'm Chinese and have been called stereotypical at best and anti-Chinese slurs at worst for doing so, which is worse lmao
