My gut instinct is historically accurate, but let’s face it, we want people to read our stories. So I’d have to agree with Cheryl. And I think Cheryl’s idea is a great way to show they’re racists!
I had watched a few episodes an old west tv show where an oriental male character’s name is “Hey Boy” and an oriental female character’s name is “Hey Girl.” They are even listed that way in the credits. While that might be historically accurate, it makes me cringe every time I hear it. I’m surprised the show is being aired, to be honest.
