It’s difficult making this write-up anything but a Mitski fan rant, but here goes nothing. In the past week there have been two high profile cases of Asian white-washing in the US in the form of Ghost In The Shell and Doctor Strange. So Mitski‘s ‘Your Best American Girl’ is already incredibly poignant, dealing with themes of trying to fit into an American culture dominated by white people. The video however takes this one step further, and is a hell of a lot better to watch than Scarlett Johannson  CG’ed to look more Japanese.
