Asians usually experiences stereotypes in Western world. These stereotypes are mainly negative concerning Asians (and Asian-Americans) in various aspects, creative expressions, governmental policies, news media, and others.

The Asian-American people also were made to work for longer hours. They were also hired because they were willing to do the more dangerous works that other refused to do. Did they have any choice by that time?

Asians’ representation within American performing arts has always been small. According to a study, some of the Asians won or nominated in portraying roles in films. The study also shows that the top 100 films last three years, 37 didn’t include a single Asian character with a speaking role.

If Asian men weren’t portrayed as the villain or the helper, they still always portray the other. Men were either sexless or sex-crazed, while women were docile concubines, or conniving dragon ladies.

And in a Facebook post by “The Love Life Of An Asian Guy”, they shared a reason why Asian men in film and television are portrayed sexually awkward and emasculate.

A massive Filipino men (also known as “Manongs”), in the early 1900s, immigrated to California to work on canning factories, farms, and fishing boats. The pay was small but the chance to own a home in California was so appealing. When “Manongs” had been immigrated, California town quickly filled up with single, sweaty, and good-looking Filipino men. 



Filipino bachelors spent their money on new suits and their time at taxi dance halls. Taxi dance halls were immensely popular among Filipino bachelors in which they provides them both entertainment and sexual attention. Filipino men could dance with first-generation European immigrant women for only ten cents.

These interracial relationships continued to blossom and included relationships between Filipino men and Italian, Mexicans, Irish, and Black women.

White men were became triggered as words spread about the “Manongs”.

“Some of these [Filipino] boys, with perfect candor, told me bluntly and boastfully that they practice the art of love with more perfection than white boys, and occasionally one of the [white] girls has supplied me with information to the same effect.”

The reality of Filipino men falling in love with white women - even if they were seen as inferior to white American men, small and weak – become a problem that mobs of masked white men started to raid, brutalize, and even kill the “Manongs”. Many of their assaults were directed at Filipino men’s groins:

“Another man, the one called Jake, tied me to a tree. Then he started beating me with his fists... A tooth fell out of my mouth, and blood trickled down my shirt. The man called Lester grabbed my testicles with his left hand and smashed them with his right fist. The pain was so swift and searing.”

Why do whites really envy the Asians? Maybe there is something about the Asian’s physiognomy that white audiences still cannot or will not accept. Despite every stereotype, whether it is true or false, it has nothing to do with the insecurities of white men.

But even Asians (or Asian-American) prove to them that they are good as the whites, there is still something else that separates them: either their origin, their past works. Asians will never be attractive to be the protagonist nor the hero in their eyes.

In today’s society, whether Asian, Asian-American, or Western origins, if they are good (or best) in making art, they will probably inspire young audiences. It is not all about their past or their races, it is all about making people happy and leaving their golden legacies.
