Trust Me, 'Crazy Rich Asians' Really Captured What It's Like To Have A Badass Asian Mom
What It's Really Like To Have An Asian Mom
If you haven't seen 'Crazy Rich Asians' please drag your ass to the movie theater and do so. Entertaining yet educational in some way , the movie perfectly in my opinion captures the struggle of being Asian American; you're not "Asian" because of where you were raised and not "American" because of how you look. It's a hard life we have. However, what I really appreciate most about the movie is how they portrayed Asian mothers. I'm trying really hard not to give away any spoilers but I'm the worst when it comes to keeping secrets so I'll try my best. Asian mothers will do anything to give their children the best but I swear if they could sell a limb, they would; if it meant giving their child a brighter future, they will do it.
