Hi everyone,

 

I'm wondering if there is any interest in discussing how (East) Asian characters are being portrayed in contemporary Hollywood movies, advertisements and TV series?

 

As you may or may not already know, media representations often rely on stereotypical portrayals of ethnic minorities - even supposedly progressive productions that are meant to be 'inclusive' and 'diverse'.
