white privilege is steven yeun, a Korean man, who was a main on the walking dead for six years, having to audition for minor roles while his white co-star Norman Reedus, who was supposed to die after four episodes, gets treated like the main character of the show, gets given storylines that were supposed to go to poc AND gets his own show about riding motorcycles.
“Maybe it’s a cultural thing, being Korean, but my first reflex has always been to exude humility - but it doesn’t help you in acting. For acting, humility isn’t the best thing. It’ll weaken your work.” – Steven Yeun.
“This didn’t exist when I was a kid. I didn’t get to see Glenn. I didn’t get to see a fully formed Asian-American person on my television, where you could say, ‘That dude just belongs here.’ Kids, growing up now, can see this show and see a face that they recognize. And go, 'Oh my god. That’s my face, too.'” - Steven Yeun on playing Glenn on The Walking Dead
