Thread "Fuck Frank": A Lesson in Orientalism and "Whitemansplaining"
I'm not American, I'm British, as well as a refugee from a country that was colonised by Britain (and other European countries), so I'm no stranger to whitewashing and imperialistic attitudes myself, but it feels like Vietnam in particular is subject to this thanks to Hollywood. I'm disappointed that Da 5 Bloods fell into the same mistakes too, even though it sought to tell its story from a marginalised perspective. But it did so while not affording the same respect to Vietnamese people.
