What the fuck is this Orientalist bullshit on Episode 6 of Netflix’s Iron Fist.

bs

White Guy with Curls goes to fight the Iron Hand. His second opponent is a black widow–literally, she stabs her victims with needles dipped with Singing Spider venom. See her back.

venom

When he first sees her, in surprise to see his next obstacle, he says, “You’re a woman.” How very sexist of him.

Every white man’s fantasy of an Asian Dragon Lady or in this case, what Yellow Widow?

This is racist ass bullshit.
