Asian Stereotypes In Film

Satisfactory Essays
When watching films whether it be action, comedy or love, one can easily recognise that most actors/actresses are noticeably white. However, when a POC is cast as a character in a film, it’s usually a stereotypical role. Even though stereotypes are unavoidable in film. Asian stereotypes are usually perceived as negative ones ever used in Hollywood. One exclusively used stereotype is the perpetual foreigner. An Asian face or accent is used to symbolise contradict everything to Western culture. No distinctions are made between American Asians and Asians who have actually came from the country itself. The media suggests that all Asians (including US citizens) cannot be from the West.
