Ah yes. This thing.
Slanty eyes? Check.
Nón lá knock-off? Check.
Buck teeth? Check.
Engrish? “OKAY FERRAS, LET’S ROCK DA JOINT.”
Reference to fortune cookies? Check.
Mock Chinese? “Shanghai-HongKong-Egg-Foo-Young, Fortune Cookie Always Wrong! Hehehe, dat a hot one.” BIG check.
I mean, I always knew this part of the Aristocats was extremely racist, but when you lay out all the different pejorative Asian tropes, it’s AMAZING how much they crammed into a three-minute musical number.
It seemed Disney liked using Siamese cats this way- the evil siamese cats in lady and the tramp had this going too- they had exaggerated buck teeth and accents and the “We are Siamese” song was distinctly faux-asian in style and of course this was supposed to add to the evil scariness!
This horrified me because i hadn’t watched lady and the the tramp since I was likes 4 or so and remembered parroting the song over and over (and I loved the aristocats too, even tho i don’t remember anything about it, esp this sequence- anything to do with cats i loved).
But then you watch it again when you’re older, and it jumps right out at you, fucking blatant shit that we still feed to children bc Disney is Good and Pure.
and people will comment on Youtube compilations with “this was just the time” and “this is not that bad”
if “it was just the time” why are their still people around who don’t think it’s “that bad”?
gotta love how this guy’s a chinese stereotype when Siamese cats originate from Thailand. Couldn’t even get their stereotypes right. “That’s an Asian cat right? we’ll make it Chinese it’s all the same right?”
African Stereotype of the Day: Gabriel, Benard, Brian, and Derrik, who live in Kenya, were inspired to poke fun at the way African men are portrayed by Hollywood: “If people believed only what they saw in movies,” they said, “they would think we are all warlords who love violence.” Mama Hope — an organization that partners with African organizations to help transform their communities — was more than happy to hand them a mic as part of a video campaign to “Stop the Pity, Unlock the Potential.”
