Battle of the Stereotypes: In the D today, Michael Chan ’04 and Hannah Kwon ’02 decry the stereopying of Asian-Americans in a new set of t-shirts put out by Abercrombie and Fitch. In their discussion of persistent anti-Asian sentiment, they state that “in 1991, Jonathan Pryce went “yellowface” in Miss Saigon, and that wasn’t even in the Midwest.” Read that again. Yup, it “wasn’t even in the Midwest.” Stereotyping in America, even without those ignorant, inbred, Midwestern rednecks in their trailer parks doing it.

And people say irony is dead.
