    In regards to the Shield show I'm going to wait until it airs before I speak ill of it, thats not to say the casting isn't alittle messed because it is. I just recall saying that I wouldn't watch Arrow and lo and behold I've tuned in every Wednesday to watch it.

    I can almost guarantee my mother will watch it though, she loves pretty much anything made by Joss Whedon.

    Take 4 instance:

    Nikita
    ....completely surrounded by Caucasian males & d only ONLY Asian male given any feature slot was in 1 ep involving an Asian male/Caucasian female relnship was md a villain who...guess wat...was trying 2 assasinate his Caucasian wife & his Asian/Caucasian biracial child all 4 a cheap bs reason.
    Y cant der b an Asian Female with a Latino guy(not d 1's dat luk like dey cum frm Netherlands.LOL!) or Native American, Indian, Arab etc?
    Asian males r incredibly marginalised....do u remember d gr8 awesome movie "Warrior's Way" dat has a AM/CF relationship but most majority of reviewers & critics pretty much 'insulted' d movie based on dat relationship.
    Dearest SilverZeal; you are 100% right, my comment was too harsh, and I have edited it (it is Christmas after all). My objection to your quote was because (as an actor) I found it completely side-swipped the effort and achievement of Minga Na. Like many Asian actresses, her struggle for representation is not easy (even in the martial arts field, nearly all the biggest stars are male). No Asian actress has ever one an Oscar (to my knowledge). We have Will Smith, Denzel, Morgan Freeman, Sidney Poitier, Jamie Foxx all with an Oscar; and many other leading black males in entertainment. Enough? No. We need more (and we will have more, because times are always changing). I feel it is wrong to belittle her addition to a possibly major T.V. show as "merely filling the Asian female fetish role". Imagine a black male was cast and a poster put "well... he's just filling the 'mandingo' role". It completely disregards his achievement and his work; and treats his addition as nothing more than shallow candy. We should celebrate Ming Na's casting. She is easily the most famous of the actors cast, and possibly will be THE lead (it is Joss Whedon after all... chances are the focus will be on the female character).

    Ming Na is so much more than filling a "fetish" role; and it's terribly wrong to imply otherwise. The show has two POC, and is 50% women. That's a GOOD thing; because Asian women and women in general also struggle for representation. Yes, it has no male POC; and hopefully we will have an additon sooner or late (as well as having Samuel L. Jackson guest star at times).

    Anyway. Merry Christmas. I hope everyone gets all the presents they wanted, and experience nothing but Yule-tide joy tomorrow.

    hollywood is terrified of creating any mandingo role, (instead the go the sexless black male route for the majority of times, for both straight and gay characters) but they do create the magical negro, black brute, and for black women, the sapphire and jezebel. people have pointed it out with the quickness regardless of who was playing the role. it's calling out the creator, writer, producer, and/or director

    One of the main problems I have with the mystical negro is why he or she doesn't use their gift to better their own situation.

    Pretty much...

    You can look all throughout this and earlier editions of this thread and see where people have pointed out that a black male character is only in a film to fill a specific role.

    oh yeah sexless. Not to mention when you do have an Asian Male they always go the sexless route no matter how badass the character is.
