Recently in America, Black & Asian communities have seen an increase in the amount of Black and Asian Actors/Actresses that have been appearing in the media through the years. Anywhere from commercials to TV to movies. The following are a few examples:
Bianca DeGroat (above) in a McDonald's commercial and John Cho (below) from 'Star Trek, both whom I'd like to personally meet and interview, are great inspirations.
There were times when seeing stereotypical roles that Black and Asian actors/actresses had to play were ridiculous and unrelatable to the averagpe Black/Asian person. It's great to see the growth and how far we have come and continually have to go.
Is America ready for a more diverse group of Black and Asian roles instead of the stereotypical parts that we have been pigeon holed into? How do we change what we don't like? Guess we'll just have to put ourselves in charge to make the change. In the meantime, let's support and celebrate our communities' successes and growth.
