Vox has made a video for those we don't get Yellowface is bad. Hollywood’s best Asian roles still go to white people. Antibody Apr 22, 14:53

You should really see a doctor about that chip on your shoulder. {nm} hyperzeitgeist Apr 22, 14:56

Maybe there is a troll proctologist that can pull your head out of your ass. {nm} islander Apr 22, 15:17

We are the goon squad and we're coming to town beep-beep {nm} hyperzeitgeist Apr 22, 15:23

This is the first time I've been happy David Bowie has passed bennyg1985 Apr 22, 16:43

would it have have frustrated you if Charles Kane had been played by a Tibetan, Don Corleone by an Asian or George Washington by a Mexican? tealfan Apr 22, 16:06

Isn't George Washington being played by a black guy in Hamilton, the hottest show on Broadway in a long time? shadowking Apr 22, 16:21

Shhhh, stop noticing things. {nm} MattW Apr 22, 16:25

The point of the video is that it isn't one iconic asian role that is being played by a white person... bennyg1985 Apr 22, 16:41

i think tealfan is a person of color. He's basically saying the same thing you are {nm} Moviesnob Apr 22, 16:43

yup, I'm Filipino...and I didn't have enough room in the title to cover the whole scope of the problem. :) {nm} tealfan Apr 22, 17:19

My apologies for misunderstanding your point and snapping at you. {nm} bennyg1985 Apr 22, 18:22

no worries {nm} tealfan Apr 22, 21:29

Thanks for posting! I only knew about half or so of those snubs, so that was really enlightening {nm} bennyg1985 Apr 22, 15:11

Ashton kutcher should know better {nm} islander Apr 22, 15:18

2012 was a different time... {nm} RamsFan2004 Apr 22, 15:29

I want to make sure I got this straight. So Asian people can complain that there are white actors cast as Asian characters... diamondman56 Apr 22, 19:05

It's a legitimate criticism but I don't think Cloud Atlas belongs on that list the_treachery_of_images Apr 22, 19:35

+1 on this. I posted about Cloud Atlas getting a short shrift in this conversation as well. Hell, Doona Bae plays 2 other races herself! MiyazakiFan Apr 22, 23:33

So would it be okay for Gal Gadot to play an Asian? She is from the Asian continent. {nm} tenchi7 Apr 23, 01:11

I believe it started with Sessue Hayakawa(Colonel Saito in Bridge over the River Kwai). He was the biggest star in Holly wood... tenchi7 Apr 23, 01:19
