it’s a pity that we saw so little of zuko and katara’s actual friendship within the show because i think it would have been very amusing to watch her pointedly ask him deeply uncomfortable questions forcing him to fully confront the ugly truths of his own colonialist privilege, for her own cathartic amusement, until he snaps and maybe even cries, because i know for a fact that she would do this, and had atla had a slightly longer episode order we would have gotten to witness it. i mean the show is already excellent as is im just saying it’s kind of a shame we missed out on this one thing, yknow?
I feel so bad for piandao who knows how long he was at the white lotus encampment for before sozin’s comet arrived and he has to hang out with two old, surprisingly jacked monarchs who never stop speaking in riddles, some guy who won’t shut up about his colonizer guilt, and fucking pakku.
um if you have showtime you should absolutely check out Ziwe which premieres tomorrow (May 9) bc i'm kind of obsessed and when i looked up the show there were already sum negative reviews from bitter white women about it
The brilliance of Ziwe is that her questions combined with the interviewees she picks are a challenge to what people often perceive as racism. It's not just white nationalists and David Duke or people waving MAGA flags; white liberals, people who think they're 'allies,' etc...possess their own form of racism and bias that they all too often either don’t realize - or don’t want to recognize. Ziwe lays that bare.
