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?

#and i would rather have a revamp about a mixed-race kid in a mixed-race world

Oh my Lord, that’d be fantastic, me wants!

Every single person has a point here. I love it. And I love how the OP says “you shouldn’t feel bad for enjoying it, just be a critical viewer” instead of the old same “THIS IS PROBLEMATIC, IF YOU ENJOY THIS FILM YOU’RE RACIST” Tumblr is used to. I love it.

… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.

Shots fired.

More like you morons completely forget your ancestors did the same damn shit and then try to change the definition of words to exempt yourself from criticism. 

Yes because PoC have set up a system where People of Color have ~poc privilege~, don’t confuse “racism” and “prejudice”.

Actually yes they have.

Don’t forget that other countries besides America exist, and damn sure don’t change the definition of fucking words, you dumb cunt. 

Well look at that.

The weirdest thing about all of this stuff is they seem to think prejudice is fine. Diet racism. Racism lite. Skim racism.

This is how racist Tumblr is.
Not only do they have such an Americanized view of history and the world but they apply it to everything, where the world thing ever in the world was the white people claiming First Nation’s land and enslaving Africans (and yes, those are awful things, but other nations have done similar).
Not only that, they act like if you aren’t white, you were fucking helpless little lambs for all of history, incapable of evil, brutality or violence.  They’re treating entire ethnic groups like children, free of responsibility because of their skin color.  Only white people are apparently ‘worthy’ enough respect to be judged by their actions.

No they don’t. Nobody on tumblr judges anyone by their actions. They judge them by the actions of their race/gender/sex/religion blablabla. This goes for both sjw dumbasses and right wing/conservative bloggers

I will never get tire to point out that my Arab ancestors liked to enslave the bajeezus out of every single race and actually really, really loved Nordic slaves. The whiter, the better.
