  20. White people are well represented. Asian faces are near impossible to see on the Western screen.
  21. Don't tell me it's the fault of Asian people. 🖕🏼
    I've left out the photos on these yellow face roles because some of them are downright disgusting portrayals of an entire race. Asian actors already betray their individual identities by playing into a larger pool of cultures to which they don't identify. They wouldn't get work otherwise. Don't erase thousands of years of culture and suffering. This is unacceptable.
