  1. What will it take for Hollywood to learn? Pan, Aloha, Dragonball Evolution, Ghost in the Shell, etc. How many millions of dollars have to be lost before Hollywood’s producers and directors get it through their heads that we aren’t spending our hard-earned dollars to see whitewashed movies?

    1. And its not that nobody wants to see white people on screen (although some of my friends online have made that vow) its just the anger at not allowing people of color to be in their own stories except as sidekicks.
