Through Tanaka, the film depicts Asian men as being 1) a perpetual foreigner, done through giving him a Japanese last and first name, as well as giving him a thick accent; 2) unabashedly racist, to the point where he’s at a slave auction (myths of Asian anti-blackness and the model minority); 3) conventionally unattractive; 4) the only character in his introductory scene without a sexual/romantic partner (a.k.a.
emasculation), and 5) implied to be envious of The Black Penis (emasculation again).

It was one of the reasons she killed herself (source).Yet Asian men get caught in the crossfire for unjustifiable reasons.
