THEYRE STILL FRIENDS
well its not like they’ve had careers to focus on
I wanted to do a brief lipsync test with Anny while I finalized the script so I used some video game voice acting for now.

Lemme reblog again and let you know why casting that white woman as the female lead in “Drive” was so fucking wrong and fucked up.
Director literally gave her the part because she looked like someone he would want to protect (read: innocent, delicate, helpless).
These traits were ones he literally did not consider a Latina for. He picked her specifically because he fit that damsel in distress imagine that’s been coded as white (and what’s made women of color “unrapeable”).
This is obviously an issue, but a couple of things to note. Mendez oversaw all casting and changes to the script and he loved the idea that Ben Stiller or whoever would play him (he and his wife spoke at my school about it).
Assuming the complaint about recasting Asian Americans is for the movie 21 (I think that’s a screen cap from it but I’m not positive) Asian Americans would have been cast, it would have been viewed as reinforcing a “Asians are good at math, are really intelligent, etc.” stereotype.
Let me reiterate: what is happening is wrong and there is a disparity between whites being cast and POC being cast, BUT sometimes there are reasons or explanations.
Yt ppl always have reasons for including themselves and erasing PoC. The MAIN POINT of ‘21’ was the Asianness of the real people. They were ABLE to do what they did by playing up stereotypes on ‘rich Asian tourists who like spending a lot of money’.
Part of NOT making the cast Asian? Means the script didn’t have to explain how racism and stereotyping helped them get away with it.
The fact remains they WERE a group of Asians, from MIT, teacher included who WERE good at math and gamed the system. But it’s only ever a THING to make Asians ‘good at math’ when it doesn’t show them outside a narrow stereotype; that is NOT showing them, having fun, being a little daring and reckless, risking danger and winning.
