Asian American feminism, politics, and pop culture
You’re telling me that Steve Rogers was a blonde, blue-eyed twenty-something kid in the 1940’s, at the height of Jim Crow fighting a war characterized by rampant anti-Japanese xenophobia. He grew up before Title IX, before integration, before Brown v. Board of Education, and before the Voting Rights Act, and you’re telling me that when he wakes up in the 21st century, he’s NOT going to have culture shock and say at least some pretty un-PC things? Oh wait, no — let’s not have him deal with that. Let’s have him throw the shield around some more.
