Race and Hollywood: My Beef with the Ancient One’s Casting

I know that in my previous article, I was focused on race a bit. It did seem like it was only black and white, did it not? Well, I’m back to say that people of almost all races are at risk of discrimination. Case in point: I was mad as hell that the Ancient One in Doctor Strange was not Asian. It was explained to the public that the characterizations of the Ancient One would be stereotypical.  Don’t you think, for instance, Lucy Liu would be dying to bust stereotypes she has faced all her life? What about the beautiful Tamlyn Tomita? Is Hollywood so racist that they cannot trust their Asian actors to break their own stereotypes? Maybe that’s it. Hollywood is so racist that they cannot trust ANY actors to break their own stereotypes. Boy, do we have a long way to go.
