A few weeks back I wrote about Wolf Warrior 2 and how it’s a big deal for Asian cinema. I also made reference to my displeasure on the casting of Celina Jade.
Celina Jade [birth name is Celina Horan] is the lead actress in this blockbuster film. Prior to this, she was relatively unknown.
She is a terrible choice for a few reasons, which I list below.
There are many Asian actresses who should could have been catapulted to become stars. Instead, that vehicle has been given to an outsider.
Celina is a biracial woman [Asian mother with Caucasian white father]. By casting her in a leading role, Asians have stupidly again provided gigantic free advertising for white sexpats across Asia and further cemented white worship within Asians. The success of this film will send the wrong message to other casting directors eg biracials are good for business. They are not. They are not needed.
Celina Jade is not even pro Asian. Her fiance is a white guy named Christian Gerard Mongendre. Keep in mind, she lives in Asia. She went out of her way to avoid Asian men to end up with a white guy.
In the background of all this is a vile racist hatred for all things Asians in western media. This has been going on for over 100 years.
No consequences. Asians who still have Asian roles [Ghost in the Shell, Dragon ball evolution, All You Need is Kill, Avatar, etc] stolen by whites do nothing in retaliation. Asians are humiliated with racist hate speech disguised as “funny jokes” continue to treat the same people with kid gloves.
It is all unbelievably and unimaginably stupid.
Asian men are probably the only group on earth dumb enough to promote their enemies and the anti-Asian children sired by their enemies. No one else does this.
White men do everything with their media to castrate you and conquer your women. They refuse to even hire a biracial actress, Chloe Wang [Asian father with Caucasian white mother] until she changed her last name to Benett. That’s how much they hate you. They hate you so much even children fathered by Asian men are shunned.
Yet, Asian men routinely hire afwm hapas and promote them without any self awareness.
This is why you are in the situation you are in. You inflict ZERO CONSEQUENCES on your enemies. Until Asians learn this lesson and inflict severe consequences on anti-Asian racists, these problems will never go away.
Very interesting development. For those of you who don’t know, the USA runs the world’s largest scam, the petrodollar. Much of the world’s oil is denominated in USD. That creates an artificial demand for USD, which gives USA a limitless credit card - as long as people keep the system going. Any alternative to the petrodollar is crushed with the American military. Of course, they will sell you bogus reasons like “freedom, democracy, human rights”
China is different. China cannot be pushed around by the American military, at least, not without intolerable cost.
Could this be the end of the petrodollar scam?
China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold
Yuan-denominated contract will let exporters circumvent U.S. dollar
China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry.
The contract could become the most important Asia-based crude oil benchmark, given that China is the world’s biggest oil importer. Crude oil is usually priced in relation to Brent or West Texas Intermediate futures, both denominated in U.S. dollars.
China’s move will allow exporters such as Russia and Iran to circumvent U.S. sanctions by trading in yuan. To further entice trade, China says the yuan will be fully convertible into gold on exchanges in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
“The rules of the global oil game may begin to change enormously,” said Luke Gromen, founder of U.S.-based macroeconomic research company FFTT.
If Saudi Arabia accepts yuan settlement for oil, Gave said, “this would go down like a lead balloon in Washington, where the U.S. Treasury would see this as a threat to the dollar’s hegemony… and it is unlikely the U.S. would continue to approve modern weapon sales to Saudi and the embedded protection of the House of Saud [the kingdom’s ruling family] that comes with them.”
As some of you may already know, there is an epidemic of poor styling and grooming among Asian men [especially the East Asian variety]. This self inflicted problem is a major factor in the dating disparity that Asian men suffer when they live in western nations. I wrote about this problem a while back along with solutions.
It’s a tough pill to swallow for guys. Luckily for them, Natalie Ng and someone named Shadowsweep? wrote about this subject in greater detail and with more eloquence than I could. She explores more of the history of Asian masculinity and dispels some of the western myths surrounding it. She later gives the “why” Asian men should distance themselves from that style and towards something more conducive for success.
Wolf Warrior 2 is a Chinese action film starring martial arts star, Wu Jing. The film hearkens back to a simpler time: the 80’s, when villains were simple-minded and plots didn’t contort your mind into a pretzel like Nolan’s Inception.
It was also an era when action relied more on skill instead of green screen gimmicks.
Aside from being enjoyable, the film may be a watershed moment for Chinese soft power and escaping the yoke of western cultural imperialism [also known as white worship and Asian self hate].
Unlike the steaming pile of sycophantic Chinese joint venture films of the past decade, Wolf Warrior reverses the formula that Hollywood swears up and down is “what the people want”. According to Hollywood, “the people want” to see a white guy save hapless Asians and get the Asian girl with a backdrop of emasculated and forgettable Chinese coolies. BTW, that is a
This film is one of the top performing films in Chinese cinematic history. The implications are enormous.
● Investors will wish to replicate the success here. Expect more films following the same formula: an Asian, not white, hero.
● A likely shift in the mindset of Chinese and Asian audiences. They already showed their will increasingly on the geopolitical. Now, it is time to spread it culturally.
I find the situation to be amusing. Whatever whining Anglo-American hypocrites come up with will sound absolutely ridiculous.
● First, they can no longer push their lie about “what people want”. The market has spoken and they overwhelmingly favor Chinese stars over worthless joint ventures that white worship.
● Second, any attacks on the film being jingoist xenophobic propaganda will expose their own hypocrisy.
● Three, the signal to investors is global. Chinese investors will not be alone trying to capture this market. Other media companies that want Chinese yuan will likely follow similar strategies.
● Fourth, and perhaps the most hilarious. Any charges of Chinese colonialism/racism in Africa is debunked both in spirit and action. That is true on and off the theater screen. According to reputable opinion surveys, Africans view China as a trustworthy partner who helps them develop. That is a far cry from the so-called “civilized West”, who to this day, continues to rape them economically
This is a watershed moment. The world just saw a 30 million dollar budget film gross over 600 million dollars in sales. Now, everyone will to copy this. Expect more Chinese heroes saving the world.
I hope Chinese soft power planners understand that the world is sick of seeing white imperialists telling their victims how “wonderful” they really are. They may not be enamored with “China saves the world” type films yet but it is a welcomed change.
Go watch it if you haven’t. Vote with your wallets!
