As some people seem to at least agree that this is lazy writing, if a very specific form of laziness occurs in regard to a very specific race, we should do better than just rolling our eyes.

Personally, I wish there was another term than 'racism', which incorporates a sense of hierarchy, to enable clearer & more complex discussions. However, media representation matters and there are people who work hard to keep in on the table. No need to ridicule them.

+) Of course, we still need to talk about the "geographically over-enlarged" term Asia, under which a wide range of difference in culture and biology is melt down as one.

Yeah. Asian Stereotypes in Hollywood have always stayed the same. But, personally, I think it’s because we’ve been discouraged to even pursue anything to do with the fine arts and are in favor of a higher paying job. Like being a doctor. 1/?

Sorry there are plenty of asians pursuing careers in the arts in US, that's how shows like webearbears came about and they're in hollywood too. It's like a glass ceiling for asians. They don't let us into the decision making seats

And it’s feels like we don’t care enough to even change Hollywood on how they view us. Hell, I’m Filipina and there’s literally nothing about us in Hollywood. We’re practically invisible to everybody despite how loud and proud we are. 2/2

It's just a dumb way of making somebody with naturally black hair look 'rebellious'. They do it with other ethnicities with naturally dark hair. Whilst people with naturally lighter hair (see: Winona Ryder, a blonde) have their hair dyed jet black. Not racism. Just laziness.

Ok, what the article says it's kinda true, but all the examples are taken way out of contex. The highlights in the hair it isn't just reserve for asian women, it's for everyone who needs to shown this rebel personality. It's lazy writing, yes, but it's not racist.

For example, you are showing the clip from Scott Pilgrim, but in that movie, the asian girl it's just trying to imitate the hairstyle of another character (wich is american an has highlights in her hair).

But do you see asian girls in hollywood action films without the streak? That's the point here. When we appear, it's always the rebellious character which narrows our existance down to only being submissive or rebellious and never a full, round human being

Yes, I see a lot asian woman who doesn't fill the stereotype of rebellious girl with a hair streak. It's true though that mostly of them falls into another stereotypical tropes. Just like the article says.

To clarify: I didn't say that the article was wrong, I say that the examples are wrong. Knives from Scott Pilgrim isn't a rebellious character, neither is Yukio from Deadpool or Blink from X-Men. They are badass, yes, but not rebellious.

I think it's really absurd not to see Latino people being portrayed in Asian cinema, it's boring racism 🤷🏻‍♂️
