When we think of The Karate Kid, we remember a coming-of-age tale of a scrawny white boy named Daniel (Ralph Macchio) who defeats his bullies with kick-based magic. But what if we considered the story from the other side? Sure, tall, Teutonic Johnny (William Zabka) isn’t as likable, but maybe he’s been unfairly maligned for his good looks. Actually, you know what? You’re right, YouTuber J. Matthew Turner! Daniel was always picking fights with Johnny. Johnny is just defending himself! It really is true: History is written by the victors.
