StarKid Friendsgiving and "A Very Potter Musical" at Feinstein's 54 Below
via Darren Criss Army:
This is interesting! Good news for StarKids! Congrats to them! I hope the StarKid cast is able to perform, or at least some of them. Also--I hope they leave out the Cho Chang song--my feelings on this may not be appreciated by StarKid fans--but really, that song is bound to offend Asian-Americans who are not StarKid fans. Not acceptable IMHO to a larger audience extending beyond StarKid fans. I was teased with similar words in that song (replace "Ching Chong" instead of "Cho Chang," or "Ching Chong China man" instead of "Cho Chang")-- presented in the same sing-song manner as the song is sung-- when I was kid growing up and I can guarantee you, I'm not the only Asian-American kid with that experience. It would not reflect well. And the twist of the Asian woman not actually being Cho Chang doesn't fix the problem of the lyrics mixing a Chinese surname with "Domo Arigato" (which is Japanese), as well as the sing-song manner that the song is sung, which is a stereotype of how non-Asians believe Asians and/or Asian-Americans speak. Just my two cents.
