erasure of Asian people and characters is very deep rooted in American media and goes all the way back to conception—don’t let it persist!

Important even when you’re excited about this movie!

good points, but please for the love of god, realize that the original marvel comic was a fucking horrible racist disaster of the most unacceptable calibre that rode on the tail ends of the 90s ninja craze and the budding 00s anime craze. 

I still have no idea why Disney chose to adapt this MASSACRE of a comic book series to film, but what I have heard is that they’ve cherry picked the best parts of it and created something great from what was absolute dregs before.

And honestly I think a movie portraying a much, much more racially diverse -even if it is fictional- world, where everyone lives unquestionably together and showing what that might just be like, is a pretty good goddamn thing that I think could stand to be shown and portrayed to kids of this generation. You aren’t seeing the white kids appropriating anybody’s culture, you’re seeing a bunch of kids who are friends and race is not a divisive factor between them. I sort of think, in media, portraying/normalizing these sorts of things is really important and I think that is what BH6 is doing here: normalizing these sorts of situations. 

When I say “normalize”, I mean, in media, and especially media for impressionable children, things that could be anything from diverse/inclusive groups of people from different races, to things like different genders, or different body types, being shown as “normal.” You put them on screen and tell a kid “this is normal.” and this can be shown in a way to goad children into doing what advertisers/media producers want, but it can also be used as a force of good. It’s about time we start using this media influence to spread stuff like this, instead of “buy this toy, wear this type of clothes, girls behave this way and boys have to do this or they aren’t normal”.

baby steps, man. There was a shitstorm when Laika released a movie with an openly gay character. But when they did the same thing a year after for the Boxtrolls, only the stupid old people got pissy about it. See? It’s starting to become normalized. 

In the future I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s now easier for more diverse casts to exist, not just because it’s now been done once, but because the people, like me, who work in production, can point to things like this and say “see? They did it in Paranorman, the world didn’t explode. It’ll be fine.” or “see? the movie didn’t have to change for a bunch of different races to fit in fine. It’s not a big deal.” It’s been normalized. Somebody has to set a precedent. Wouldn’t it be great if shows were as diverse as this, not because they had some sort of agenda to, but just because that’s… yknow, normal?

The replies to this is pure gold! Again, not sure why Disney chose to make a movie abut this trash comic but the fact that they are making something beautiful out of it says a lot. Mix races in cultures is movies in a positive way is rare. Mixed CHILDREN (Hiro being half White, half Japanese) is amazing.

So please, sit down and rethink your argument. Why support a racist comic and get mad when Disney tries to make it diverse?

There are so many things wrong with the OP

First, The examples of white converted asian charachters. Goku is a saiyan, therefore not asian in any way shape or form. Any asian semblance was a choice by the Japanese creator. Khan is not asian whatsoever. He, also an alien, is not even portrayed by an asian person! Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalbán y Merino is Mexican, a son of Spanish immigrants. Not asian. And Aang isn’t asian either. Avatar is a show with asian influences, but that doesn’t make Aang asian. He’s a light skinned monk, doesn’t mean he’s asian.

Second, their idea of racial diversity seems to be having 5 people of similar race being shown. 5 people in a story originally full of stereotypes and racist names like Wasabi (even if that is a nickname or code name or alias, it’s stereotypically racist.)

Hollywood (or American media in general) does have a tendency to butcher foreign things and take out foreign influence, substituting more White/American oriented portrayals. But the argument posed was weak and the movie they choose to highlight is probably not going to be too bad a perpetrator of the things they’re claiming. But until it comes out, who knows

There are a couple main problems with this.1. The hat can be protecting his head and it’s back wards to protect his neck. So that’s why he has the sunglasses2. By the shadows and where the light is, you can tell his back is to the sun. So he’s not shielding his eyes from the sun thus neither probably would have helped whatever reason he’s doing it anyway.
