    Whitewashing and Hollywood. Racism or Outdated Business Practises

    From Mickey Rooney’s portrayal of I.Y Yunoshi in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to recent controversy of Scarlett Johansson playing Motoko Kusanagi in the Ghost in the Shell live action adaptation. Many Hollywood films give various roles meant for minorites to Caucasian actors but is it really racism or just Hollywood not quick enough with times to adapt to our rapidly changing world.

    • I think another issue the article writer might tackle is the justification I've heard that even some global markets prefer white/light-skinned actors and how this affects actors of color worldwide. Concerning just America, I've seen a lot of discussion about the effects on Asian-American actors when whitewashing happens. Gene Yang, a Chinese-America graphic novelist and proponent on diversity, made a comic about The Last Airbender's whitewashing. Constance Wu and Ming-Na Wen have addressed The Ghost in the Shell. Another older film to look at could be The Conquerer with John Wayne as Genghis Khan. – Emily Deibler 8 years ago
    • The latter for sure. – Munjeera 8 years ago
    • As an Asian, I really take this issue quite personally. I would recommend the person looking into this article and accompanying video It speaks about Asians being underrepresented or portray as a fool. I don't think it should be considered revolutionary to cast a Japanese for a Japanese role. It's galling to see that "yellow face" is still acceptable in 2016. – Jill 8 years ago
    • The former, people don't realise it but this is a more subtle form of racism. – sandrazemingui 8 years ago
    • Al Jolson and Robert Downey, Jr. in blackface, separated by about seven decades. Now that's inertia. – Tigey 8 years ago

    I have this manga, it was the first manga I purchased and to this day, it is my favourite manga to read. The art’s good and the story is really well told. The only down side is the price, the volume I bought was quite expensive but if you are looking for quality you won’t go wrong here.

    Great Article! I’ve always felt that they didn’t need to make anymore halo games after reach, they really wasn’t anymore story to tell that would be interesting and just are milking what’s left of the lore to extend the franchise.

    Tales of Symphonia was the first tales game I played besides chrono trigger to give me a feeling of going on an epic adventure, you got to know and love the characters and every spot of the story felt how ever minor that you were changing the world for the better and the worst. I played for the first time since I bought it when it came out and I still felt the same when played it that first time. A really great game!
