Since this is a prequel, the role of Detective Dee goes to Mark Chao and comes with even bigger special effects than the previous film, and I had just as much fun with this film as the original. An attempt to kidnap her is foiled by the newly arrived Dee and Detective Yuchi Shaofeng but things take a strange turn when a creature emerges from the waters and tries to kidnap Yin. Young Detective Dee is an exciting, fun romp in a world barely seen in the original film. Giant monsters, strange islands, people with weird abilities, and cures involving piss, and a horse that can swim underwater while being chased by said creature is just a little of what awaits in this stellar sequel.
When it was just me, rushing on foot from my apartment to meet my husband or a friend after work, I could make it in 10 minutes flat. But when I was with my husband, our trek was always considerably slower. My race tended to be my primary distinction. Then there was the time I was called up to the front of the assembly by my middle school English teacher, to be congratulated for winning a writing award, only to realize halfway through her list of my accomplishments that she actually meant the other tall, gangly Asian girl in my class.
I accepted the award anyway.
But in Hong Kong it was different. At one point, a performer asked a question to the audience and asked for a show of hands.
I raised my hand, as did a white woman a couple of tables away. In a room full of people who were also Asian, my race was unremarkable.
Living in Asia gave me a small understanding of what it might be like to be white in America. That privilege of moving through society as one of the majority was sometimes subtle and sometimes significant.
The way the food stand owner ever-so-slightly relaxed with me after the white woman moved on. The way nobody surveilled me when I went into the little village convenience stores in Yuen Long and lingered over the cheap wine selection, petting the shop cats.
If we spoke, my heavily accented Cantonese might have felt like a bait-and-switch to locals in Hong Kong, and the fact that I spoke Japanese like a toddler was baffling to locals in Japan. My first weeks in New York, I found myself trying to function under constant low-level panic.
Part of this was just that moving always makes my anxiety spike. But the other side of that panic, I realized, was that suddenly everyone went from looking like me to mostly not looking like me.
When I share this observation with well-meaning friends and acquaintances who ask me if I am excited to be back home in the U. Do they have an Asian fetish? Are they surprised to see an Asian person at this place?
Do they hate Asian people? Do they hate non-white people? Do they hate immigrants? Do they hate women? Do they hate women immigrants?
Am I in danger? Part of living as a minority in America is having an almost sixth sense about when someone is going to be terrible. There are gradations of terrible people, and I used to have a clear idea of who I could handle, who was just misguided and could be open to learning, who was flat-out dumb, and who was obstinately racist and not worth my time.
These classifications kept me sane and helped me survive.
