Yu Dao – Republic City – the END and TRANSITIONING of Colonies and how Jin is sick and tired of all the bullshit she’s seen on the issue
Let’s go from there. This is a story about a fictionalized Hong Kong. It is not about Palestine, Africa or India or any other similar issue. If you want that I suggest watching DS9, or watch an actual movie about those specific issues. There are plenty, yet this is not one of it. Hong Kong deserves their story told too.
In case you missed this: The whole Avatarverse is full of political commentary on China e.g. Tibet-Air Nomads, Dai Li , Laogai, Kuei to name the least subtle ones.
This is NOT about:
-Aang vs. Zuko (and I frankly do not give a shit about who you wuuuuf more)
-Imperialism. Yes, you read that right. This is not about Imperialism; it is about what happens AFTER the fact, and what to do when transitioning away from it and let me tell you there are very few examples that did not go badly.
Harping on and on how imperialism is wrong makes you sound like a broken record of captain obvious.
I am sick and tired of people talking about issues simply because they know which side is ‘right’ for that specific issue. Frankly the self-righteous posturing is getting old, guys. So far you have yet to manage to say one word that is relevant to the show or the comic.
By making it about any other place than Hong Kong you are as bad as Shyamalan. Stop superimposing other histories/events/countries. You are racebending the issue.
On a side note:
Saying that ‘all foreigners should just get kicked out’ makes you especially historically ignorant. The times that happened it ended in wholesale massacres of hundreds of thousands of people, both in China and Japan. Also, shouldn’t a lot of you guys not be packing? Last time I checked the US, Canada, Australia etc were all colonies at one point.
