Hollywood, network TV, American media, etc, treat Asians (of all nationalities/ethnicities) pretty poorly overall, with tons of marginalization, ridicule, stereotyping, and so-on. However... This comment is false. The point of this thread is to talk about Asians being ill-treated, not Blacks and I respect that, so I won't soapbox/hijack too much, but I will at least say that Blacks have been and are widely and continually misrepresented and caricatured in both historical and modern depiction, and no one is "horrified" by it. Most of it just passes as "normal". This is also false. (Tropic Thunder for example featured Robert Downey Jr. in full blackface and got an Oscar nomination!!) Against Blacks, this type of thing may occasionally illicit more outcry and/or scorn, typically from political opponents and/or media critics of the party being called-out (therefore making the scorn decidedly disingenuous), but Black-stereotypes get invoked and imitated all the time, without any significant outcry that it was "in poor taste." To the extent that modern media outlets are more careful in mocking/stereotyping Blacks, keep some things in mind. 1. Civil Rights movement - Where people were fire-hosed, dog-sic'd, burned, hanged, jailed, assassinated etc, on national/global TV/media to bring attention to mistreatment of Blacks. This may account for why people are slightly more cautious in their treatment of Blacks. 2. Modern Protests/riots - The Rodney King riots, Ferguson, etc have established a precedent that there is a risk that Blacks will cause huge amounts of trouble and risk injury and arrest when there is a perception of gross mistreatment. 3. Population - The Asian population is lower than that of Blacks. In a democracy, smaller numbers can often mean smaller voice. These are just some ideas why stereotyping/ridicule of Blacks gets more attention than similar mistreatment of Asians.
