Racial Diversity in Hollywood

Ghost in the Shell has been blowing up lately, since Scarlett Johansson apparently looks Japanese????

But Ghost in the Shell isn’t the only movie where POC were whitewashed/color of characters were changed. I’m all for more diversity, trust me, I love Shadowhunters and the racial changes they made, but Hollywood needs to get a sense of the fact that there are other races in the world. I may seem whiney to some people, so I’d like to share why this is an issue:

Because Christian Bale must be Egyptian

Because Rooney Mara is totally Native American

Because Mackenzie Davis is obviously Korean-American

Because Emma Stone appears ¼ Chinese

I admire all these actors and actresses greatly (especially Emma Stone and ScarJo). They do a wonderful job at their craft and are really dedicated. I’m not attacking them, or criticizing them. I’m criticizing the people who decide to cast them in roles of color that do not suit them.

I’ll just pray that Mulan does justice.
