I am talking about whitewashing and stereotypes. This is a topic that has been covered by many. Even John Oliver has covered this topic, but it would seem that there is not even traction yet or most western companies just seem to outright prefer having a majority White cast in a increasingly globalist society.
Okay, I’m not a fan of the Chinese communist government at all. They suppress information and alter history. They’ve destroyed culture and twisted the truth so many times, that some parts of history we will never know now. However, what’s going on with the Hong Kong Riots, isn’t that far off. The western press have been writing this as some David vs Goliath of battle between Hong Kong and China, when it’s more like an abusive child throwing his toys at his parents.
Tensions have flared up again in Hong Kong. Riots have sprung up over the eviction of illegal street vendors, or this is what the Western media sites have been reporting. There’s another side of the story, and that is this riot was very much planned and instigated by the right wing extremist group, Hong Kong Indigenous. No one really talks about how all these Hong Kong Indigenous groups are causing havoc on the streets. Like actual havoc.

I am writing this to show how One Punch Man is an excellent allegory of society, that it is akin to works like Brave New World in representing the people and classes of the world.

Taiwan, not Republic of China, not Formosa, not Chinese Taipei, not Thailand, not Asian…wait, they are Asian. Anyway there’s been this issue that’s been on my mind lately and it’s related to the Taiwan MRT ‘scandal’.
