I play “Spot the Asian” when I watch movies. I remember doing this for The Avengers recently, and feeling disheartened near the end of the film when I had yet to see an Asian…
I subconsciously play the same game when I watch movies, TV shows, commercials. The first time I remember being pleasantly surprised was during “American Pie,” where John Cho was presented as just another dudebro. Good stuff to keep in mind for my (at this point still hypothetical) personal projects.
More wicked old stuff.
