I love your sense of humor. You're so weird.

Love this site, I've been a member for about 6 years. First comment and it needs to be seen: The title of this video only serves to perpetuate existing stereotypes of East Asian folks which has lead to the rise in violence within the community.

This may be different than the title's intent which I assume was meant to be "fun".

It's not fun to cherry-pick the things you like about a culture and not adopt the violence, fetishization and racial oppression of a marginalized population. Do better, be better 🙏🏾

We appreciate and value your deep concern for this important topic. We agree with you that entertainment from 50 years ago is naturally problematic if it is only seen through today's lens without accounting for its context or how we've grown as a culture. We trust that most viewers who may recognize this reference see it for what we intended: an affectionate homage to a breakthrough cultural icon that initiated a wider conversation and appreciation for race and equality nearly half a century ago.

Great active hip stretches!! Really got to a couple of sore spots that I didn't quite realize were there. And Rachel had me giggling a few times throughout
