White Male Privilege Isn't Real

  • Published on May 30, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • This is my first comedy special, Bring Back Apu, and it truly is special to me. Because somewhere along the line, South Asians started trying to cash in on victimhood currency. Complaining about cartoon characters, people mispronouncing our names, and God knows what else.
    But we were raised better than that. Our parents, grandparents, uncles and aunties taught us dominate everything we do, just like they did when they made it here. And it is our privilege to carry that tradition forward. So it's time to end all the victim sh*t and taking our identity back.
    I hope you enjoy

    Apu was one the smartest guys on the show, he had 8 kids, a lovely wife, a firebird car, a business owner, has a doctorate in computer science, takes his religon seriously (when homer mocked him about it..Apu was still VERY polite about it.), he's friends with Sir Paul Macartney, builds his own furniture, has a great singing voice, and he's seen as a THREAT???

      He's not a "threat", some Indian guy found it offensive that he was voiced by a white guy and not an Indian. Isn't acting supposed to be pretending to be people that you're not, ESPECIALLY voice acting? Doesn't matter, get rid of him or the liberals are gonna boycott your show.

    • Prax
      Prax 20 days ago +1

      @Binskee Nearly no one in the 20th century used the term "orient" to refer to India. In some crazy old writings where they didn't know anything east of where things were it was. It's a perfectly useful word, and those insisting on it's disuse are doing so under the auspices of the worst ideology in human history.
      I have zero concern for what megalomaniacs think.

      I also liked how the jokes about Hinduism were mainly about the American characters being dumb or ignorant. My favourite Apu moment was when Homer is...being weird about Apu's Ganesha statue, and Apu, in a very dignified and firm way, says: "Please do not offer my god a peanut."
      The joke isn't "Ooo, weird foreign religion!" it's "Americans are ignorant about world cultures."

    Apu was:
    - College graduate
    - Able to earn his American citizenship.
    - A volunteer firefighter
    - A vegetarian and made Lisa a better one by telling her not to judge people.
    - The only playable character in Hit and Run outside of the Simpsons family
    - A complex character
    - A good character
    I would have rather they re-cast Apu than just get rid of him.

    Apu was the only Non-Simpson playable in Simpsons Hit and Run. An entire towns worth of characters and they had to narrow it down to him says a lot about his character and why they chose him to represent the brand in a now classic video game.

  • TBustah
    TBustah Year ago +1995

    Here’s another one: Apu was a consistent voice of reason. He wasn’t a simpleton in a minstrel show, he was somebody whom many characters turned to for advice because he was knowledgable on a number of topics and one of the few stable adults around. That’s why I knew most of the people complaining about him probably hadn’t actually seen much of him in action. He owns a convenience store? That’s a harmful stereotype? I’m busting my ass working minimum wage (or less) at one of the few jobs in this shitty border town I’m qualified to do (options are severely limited when you don’t know Spanish), owning a convenience store sounds like a DREAM!

    • TBustah
      TBustah Year ago +72

      @TheRandompaint He certainly did, but that is the most obvious thing about him if you ask me. Akaash mentions it, and other commenters have. Hell, they actually made a point of highlighting it in ON THE SHOW, in the episode where he gets married. All of the single guys at a bachelor auction were losers whom none of the women wanted to bid on, and somebody pointed out that Apu had a lot going for him (including the business).
      He’s more than his business, though, which is my point. He has a Ph.D in computer science, which is how he ended up in America in the first place, to pursue a doctorate (which he also earned).

    • TheRandompaint

      @TheRandompaint It’s true that we can’t tell other people how to feel, but stereotypes are just what the show DOES. If I were Indian, I think I’d be more offended if they DIDN’T do a little ribbing, like they thought I couldn’t take a joke like everyone else the show pokes fun at.

      Exactly. I was born in the early 90s and I grew up on these guys. Willie taught kids to be proud of their heritage, to stand tall, proud and strong. And Apu taught kids the value of hardwork. Sure he made mistakes but he owned up to it instead of ignoring them.

      I think if he could of or when he can he will sell to Netflix or whoever. Akaash just ain’t at that level yet in their eyes.

      @Bada Bing fuck all that. Netflix doesn't define comedians. You act like it's winning an Emmy. Akaash clearly likes having the freedom of speaking the taboo, and him posting on Clip-Share let him do it how he wanted and that's why we're watching. While I do hope he gets paid, I hope he never sells out and always keeps it real

      @hollywood dc I can understand your arguments, but I think having a Netflix special kinda legitimizes you wether we like to admit that or not honestly. Also you get more outreach if you are on Netflix too.

    • hollywood dc
      hollywood dc Year ago +3

      @John Lewis I disagree. at most Netflix has just become some empty corporate paycheck that you've become mainstream. Like NBA players today getting fat contracts is more about how many shoes they sell and IG followers they got. Netflix also got Amy Schumer and Hasan Minhaj, signing fat contracts for just being popular and they suck shit. There's so much prime talent that don't have mainstream Netflix specials now. Congrats if he does get a special and it leads to movie deals or sitcoms, but as a fan it don't make a difference to me one way or the other as long as he's staying 💯 and he's still on air

      If I was religious, I would pray for him to get the recognition he deserves, because this was genuinely impressive. Didn’t hold back because he was afraid of offending people, just keeping it real. I’m glad I heard about this, he’s upper echelon

      also I've request for you :
      Please talk with Dr. Tess Lawrie ( Cochrane reviewer ) and how WHO's sponsored meta analysis on Ivermectin was botched up by UNITAID funding of 40 Million dollars and how they changed the conclusion of Dr. Andrew Hill's meta analysis, who was so pro Ivermectin and then flipped within a week.

      @Matt K you might be right about some of these other comics because they just can’t bring more than 30min of funny. Akaash ain’t one of those comics. Dude is crazy talented… bet he could put out a special where he just roasts the audience and it would be 🔥. I’m hoping to see his little ass live in Ontario, Ca.

    I'm a 32 white Canadian. The very first thing I remember about learning about Indians (even that you existed,) was Apu. He was my introduction to your culture. My brother, & I loved him so!! Apu always felt like family. He was just like Homer. Different flavour, different colour, but there was a reason they had that genuine connection to each other. It was palpable.
    This was such a great comedy!! Right up my alley. I was actually touched (emotionally 😜). This guy has some real heart!! Will be watching more for sure. ❤

      I don’t know man, I knew of him because of Andrew S (who is hella funny) & Flagrant 2 where Akaash spends most of the show laughing at Andrews jokes. I was not impressed by him on the JRE, he was not an entertaining or inspiring guest, seemed waaaay out of his league.

      It's objectively not true that we have it easier than them. Cost of college is higher, wages are lower, etc.

    • marco
      marco Year ago +5

      That’s certainly not true a lot of first generation Americans are born into poverty ridden neighborhoods, born to uneducated parents with literally no guidance besides their parents which in most cases is terrible

    • Edwardo Esparza
      Edwardo Esparza Year ago +36

      @OHP77 you need to get this idea out of your head that college is the only way to make it. There are multiple pathways to get good money, it may not be something you like but its there. The real question is if you really want to make it out of your situation you got to overcome obstacles. Just like Akaash said, no one owes you anything. You have to work. Many people have been successful without college and many people have been failures with college. It depends on hard you are willing to work.
