:ben10: Required Reading The guy that played Shang-Chi claimed that Tarantino's movies aren't diverse which is hilarious because his filmography is objectively more diverse than Marvel's

https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2022/nov/23/simu-liu-criticises-quentin-tarantino-after-director-laments-the-marvelisation-of-hollywood

He basically implied that if Tarantino was in charge of the film industry, minority actors wouldn't ever be cast. My immediate reaction was "What the frick are you talking about?". Tarantino unironically probably has more diversity in his movies than any other white male director. Even if Simu Liu was talking about Asian actors specifically, did he forget that Lucy Liu was one of the main characters in Kill Bill? It's probably her most iconic role.

Out of the nine films Tarantino has directed, only two of them had exclusively white male leads (Reservoir Dogs and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood). Basterds was mainly white and male too but Shosanna was also one of the lead characters which is why I didn't count it. Marvel has made four movies with non-white leads (Eternals, Black Panther 1 & 2, Shang-Chi), Tarantino has made five (Jackie Brown, Hateful Eight, Django, Pulp Fiction, and Death Proof). And this is despite the fact that Marvel has made more than three times as many movies as he has.

Marvel was run by a guy that actually was blatantly racist until 2015 (Ike Perlmutter). I really have no idea how Disney has convinced people that they're some champion of progressive values. They literally never have been. They didn't have any non-white leads in their animated films until the 90's and they're just now starting to slowly acknowledge that gay people exist.

Their PR department must be really good at their jobs. The Mouse has somehow managed to appeal to right-wingers by basically never being controversial or pushing the envelope but they've also somehow gotten zoomers to believe that they're leading the charge for social justice. It genuinely is kind of fascinating to me how Disney can somehow play both sides successfully.

There's a class of Asian male (Simu Liu, Eugene Yang) where their whole identity is the insecure, aggrieved, oppressed, woe is me while simultaneously benefiting from heaps of success and privilege despite their alleged short-comings. You get used to their predictable bleating based on projection of their internal issues.

In Simu's case, he's in an industry that prizes looks, and while fit, he is not a very attractive man by any standard.

He posted on aznidentity as well, my small peepee radar is going off the charts :marseychartscatter:

It's still so crazy to me that some aznidentity poster is actually having some mainstream success in the world. He's still a ricecel at his core though, as can be seen with his severe insecurities. I wonder if he's still active there under an alt.

Asian foids play the racial griftmaxxing game as an extension of their relentless corporate ladder climbing, but the Asian moids who try and pull it off just look so pathetic I feel a deep primal urge to stuff them in a locker.

>people asked me if I knew kung fu growing up!!

:marseyunamused#: Wow, tragic :violin:

Asian racial grievances are hilarious. "When I was a kid, white people said my food was smelly. Now white people love asian food! That's basically genocide!"

That's every racial grifter, chinks finally learned something from the blacks.

The funniest thing is I remember the backlash about Simu being ugly coming from mainland Chinese, except it was more about how he looks like a typical Western view of what a Chinese man is. Like facially he represents only one kind of Chinese and Hollywood keeps promoting those guys and there's tons of different looking Chinese that never get any rep or something like that. That's what I got from the actual Chinese response and not the "China is racist against their own" bullshit.

Nah, it didn't have to do with ameriKKKan anything. They legitimately didn't think he looked good. They thought he looked like some homly butt common northern Chinese guy, average at best. Narrow eyes and a flat face aren’t considered very attractive to mainstream Chinese media. They're all about flower boys at the moment.

Okay that sounds clearer. I was trying to dance around it because I didn't remember the info clearly. Turns out nobody wants to watch a pancake talk.

Flower boys?

Essentially the K-Pop aesthetic, but with Chinese twinks.
