Model Minority Rage: Why the Hulk Should Be an Asian Guy
dailybeast ^

Posted on 07/19/2014 12:51:44 AM PDT by chessplayer

Captain America is black. Thor is a woman.

The ideal Bruce Banner is a cuddly teddy bear, likable in a wussy kind of way. An adorkable loser. Totally harmless…until the moment when he isn’t. And there’s no better actor to portray such a character than scruffy hipster heartthrob Mark Ruffalo.

With one caveat—he’s a white guy. And he should be Asian.

The writer is an idiot. Most of his article is spent decrying stereotyping of “Asians”, as if Asians are monolithic in culture. Isn’t that a gross stereotype?

This is probably the stupidest article ever written.
Right up there with,

“And let’s face it—no one wants to have sex with the model employee. The brash, opinionated, heroic-if-flawed white guy playing the Green Hornet is the one girls fall for; the humble, hard-working Kato gets to deposit a fat paycheck and then spend his weekends alone.”

This is an interesting line. Sounds in a similar vein like the wealthy kid in CA who hated the chicks who refused to acknowledge his awesomness.

~Then he went berserk after leaving his rant for all to see.

If you can believe it this Asian guy has a problem with people having a positive perception of Asian Americans. He has a problem with being the “model minority” (i.e,normal, hard working, non violent and responsible. Why? Because the US cherry picked the best and brightest asians rather than the general population. Rather than seeing this as a success, he sees it as a negative.

My experience with asians is that they are very weak. They are no help on moving day. They can be quick, and they might have endurance, but they are very, very weak.

The French had a similar opinion until the Viet Minh disabused them of it by hand-carrying their heavy artillery up the hills surrounding Dien Bien Phu and blowing the shit out of the french.

It's just amazing. White males did 99% if not more, of the discovery, exploration, and nation-building of the western world-the part of the world the rest of the world is rushing to, for better opportunities-but all we hear is how everyone else is entitled to all the things those white males discovered, produced, created, etc. Why didn't the so-called "minorities" (whites are the global minority) just do the same thing in the places from whence they came? It's not environment, as the "evil" white colonialists also created civilisation in African and Asian spheres, with much less numbers.

If white males ever create livable environments in the ocean or outer space, after risking their lives and doing the heavy lifting, we'll hear the same thing.

Geographically, Asia starts at the Mediterranean and extends all the way to Japan. Lots of choices inbetween. Could be an Israeli, for instance.

Can you please reference the source of this anecdote? I only wish these fabled “strong asians” could have been there to help us move.

If the french had been concerned that the viet minh could take advantage of the high ground using arty then they would not have occupied the bottom of a bowl, n'est-ce pas?

Exactly. There’s a vast difference even between Thai and Vietnamese.

If the Hulk was asian, he’d only be 5 foot tall.

Absolutely. "Asian" covers what, 60% of the world's population?

I could see Bruce Banner being a mild-mannered sumo wrestler, though. Problem is, when he gets enraged, he shrinks.

"Ah, pulled it out of your..."

The French lost at Dien Bien Phu because they underestimated the physical capabilities of their opponents. The "weak asians" won at Dien Bien Phu because they dragged heavy artillery and anti-aircraft guns through the jungle and up the sides of mountains. Had the French thought the Viet Minh were capable of doing those tasks they would have secured the high ground.The actions of the French made their attitudes very plain.

I can only cite historical examples, I don't have anything as compelling as your exhaustive study of a couple of asian furniture movers.
