Freedom of expression is a right that we support, but not at the expense of profiting off the stereotypes that continue to oppress our communities of color. The story of Miss Saigon is as original as the history of racism and sexism existing in America. We do not support the Ordway and its production of Miss Saigon. As an online publication platform, we care about the realities and truth of our experiences and journeys as Lao Americans. We stand in solidarity with our Asian American brothers and sisters and that’s why we will continue to tell our stories, written for us by us.
