I don't think it's fair to say that this episode is trying to be an "Asian version" of "The Color of Truth". The two episodes deal with completely different issues. "The Color of Truth" deals with segregation in the United States. "The Americanization of Machiko" is dealing with how other cultures are accepted in the states and how someone from another culture has to adapt in order to be accepted. It also gives a picture of the anger that remained against Japanese after World War II.
