“A Letter to JK Rowling from Cho Chang” by Rachel Rostad

“Harry Potter is not the most racist thing ever. In fact, it is probably one of the more progressive popular series out there, but the point is, that’s not enough… The point is that racism isn’t just present in small niche cultures. My piece is not a critique on JK Rowling, as much as it is on the repeated tokenization and fetishization of Asian women in popular culture.” 3:34
