I'm getting a headache just seeing this. I'm Vietnamese. Born in the us, family were ex-military, survived the war, came here to get out of that shit hole. BTW, I actually don't hate the US. Yeah, you Americans screwed up, but shit happens. When you're from that family history, you don't care about this kind of shit. If anything, I'm more pissed they're apologizing.
When it comes to "Vietnamese Representation" whatever the fuck that means, people like me only care about a handful of details that we'd rather not see:
1. Don't mistake us for Chinese. Thousands of years of war with them makes that a sore spot.
2. Don't lionize Ho Chi Minh or attempt to be an apologist for communism.
3. The whole women are Miss Saigon/Vietnamese Hooker thing
Beyond that, I don't give a fuck. Hell, if I told my parents about the whole issue with this show not having Vietnamese writers, they'd probably joke, "Of course there aren't any Vietnamese writers, the Commies killed them all!"
Yeah, Viets have a dark sense of humor.
