When a television show decides to use an unopposed, typically offensive idea or dialogue in relation to an Asian character, “and the moment is instead played for laughs - more damage is done than if Asian Americans were to remain off network television altogether,” (pg 1, lines 20-21). These jokes become normalized, leading to the idea that hurtful stereotypes can, “come from a good place,” and be, “humorous satire,” (pg 2, line 7). This unrestricted use of stereotypes, “has created a feeling of safety around mocking a group that is not commonly viewed to be disadvantaged or disenfranchised,” (pg 2, lines 14-15). The mocking simply becomes the actual opinions of those uninformed in the reality of the minor races and cultures. In my opinion, the article is not particularly effective in anyway.

Stereotypes and social scripts are a timeless subject that have been caught and displayed to entertain through movies. Whether it be a classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with Asian Mr. Yunioshi played by the obliviously Caucasian Mickey Rooney. (source) Exhibiting the obvious incorrect race for the role, and yet the film still went on the be very successful. This is due to dyers thinking, “stereotypes express particular definitions of reality, with concomitant evaluations, which in turn relate to the disposition of power within society.” (dyer 3) The power of society deciding that the stereotyping is acceptable.

This show serves as a platform for people to laugh at Norma’s insanity and feel fear through Norman’s killings. In addition to being a source of entertainment, it also provides positive and powerful morals. The fantasy of unconditional love is a major theme within the television show. While their love precipitates complications from the devotion they share, it shows that love isn’t gone when someone is crazy, angry, or dangerous. A new perspective towards the people labeled ‘crazy’ and ‘problematic’ can be obtained in our own society and can be extended to a reminder that everyone feels emotions, love, joy, sadness, desperation etc..

On the same note, lying can help a relationship go the extra mile, exclusively if politeness—interpersonal or social—is capably exchanged. Therefore, it is no surprising that in the United States, where politeness is held highly, the average American lies once or twice a day (Kim B. Serota, Timothy R. Levine, and Franklin J. Boster 12). Similarly, in Korea, kibun is a term that roughly translates into upholding harmony in a relationship or being attentive a person’s mood and feelings. To hurt someone’s kibun is extremely offensive; furthermore, the line between polite and invasive is fragile. Actions like being argumentative or giving bad news—gestures that are archetypal in America—can easily hurt someone.
