Cameron Crowe, Whitewashing, and Yellowface.  Hollywood Can Suck It.

One thought on “Cameron Crowe, Whitewashing, and Yellowface.  Hollywood Can Suck It.”

  1. One thing to keep in mind about whitewashing and Hollywood: who IS Hollywood?

    Be the shepherd, not the sheep, they tell us, leading one generation after another into ” whiteness.” Today, for instance, Latinos have the option if lusting themselves as caucasian on census forms; in rhe 19th century it was the Irish ( NOT the Scotch- Irish).

    The simple answer is that white is a privilege- and the new white is black and brown, because Asians are too numerous, and could overwhelm the Jewish Christian narrative easily if they advance too quickly, whereas blacks are eagerly chomping at the bit, and using the same racist tools.

    I have heard it said that there are only two prominent cultures whose religion is money- the Chinese, and Jews- which, despite the obvious racism involved, is somewhat true. Which to me, explains a bit about whitewashing as a privilege rather than a mistake of fashion, or as an appeal to the wider audience- white people.
