With films such as Doctor Strange and Ghost in the Shell drawing major controversy, the whitewashing of Asian roles in North American media is an all too common phenomenon. And, when Asian actors are cast, they are often subjected to racialized typecasting which perpetuates stereotypes.

What this blog will look at is a variety of films and television shows, both American and Canadian, and discuss the representation of Asian roles within them. Furthermore, this blog will also explore a little bit of history, and look at some of the outdated issues which have lead to the whitewashing and stereotyping of Asian roles in the media.
