#OscarsSoWhite: From Anna May Wong to Awkwafina



Be Kind Rewind, the YouTube channel devoted to Hollywood history and the Academy Awards, just posted a new video examining the Farewell's Oscar snub, media's portrayal of Asian women, and how its a continuation the history of Asian American discrimination in Old Hollywood.

I'm not the biggest Awkafina fan but the Farewell legit was snubbed. Also the story of Anna May Wong's career is super depressing.
