Well, if it weren't the Asians protesting, it would be Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Charlie Chan had a black chauffeur and assistant named Birmingham Brown, who created laughs when he acted scared in a sterotypical fashion of that era.

This guy is spamming all the blogs.

Back to the subject: I loved the Charlie Chan movies too. Apparently I was supposed to grow up thinking Asians were... whatever, inferior? but instead I grew up having massive crushes on Asian actors and becoming a real fan of Asian culture. I used to check out all the books in the library on China, Japan, and the rest of the area, and anytime a movie came on that features Asian actors I had to watch it. And Hawaii 5-0 was my favorite show. Somehow all of this is supposed to indicate my native whitegirl prejudice. Well it does -- I remain favorably prejudiced towards Asian culture.
