Defying stereotypes one role at a time

It has been almost three decades since Long Duk Dong made his appearance in “16 Candles,” and it doesn’t look like Hollywood’s perception of Asian men has changed all that much. Actor John Wusah turned down a chance to audition for a film, where the Asian character was there just to be made fun of. I can’t imagine that it’d be easy for an actor of any race to turn down an opportunity to work. So Kudos, Mr. Wusah.

    People are dumb. I always wonder if there’s really anybody who honestly, genuinely finds this kind of thing ‘comedic’. Or rather, how the people who do are in a position to produce actual funded ‘comedic’ works.

    Thank you so much for your kind words.
