I hope I wasn't the only one waiting for this to come out!

So many sad comments. Luckily, there are some people whose comments lifted me up (but are they enough?). Geez... the guy asking the interviewers what they're doing in America... ugh. And not to sound racist, but the black people who were okay with Jackson possibly donning yellowface? LOL @ at the guy who tried to defend the casting ("To their credit..."???), but then he became speechless when he saw the "Caucasian or any other ethnicity" casting sheets. Ugh, Mickey Rooney. I've never seen the actual clip until now. I've only heard about it. I feel as if I'm about to vomit. All of the other yellowface movie clips are just as bad. LOL @ the casting assistant trying to explain the situation. "Well, you see, what happened was..."

:D - Don't worry about it, just try to avoid it in the future if you can :). Ableism really is everywhere; I still find myself calling things 'lame' every so often. *facepalms*

And that is an idea I can back up 100% :D. I'm half-Mexican myself, from my mom's side, and I can't count how many times I've heard someone mutter that she or I should 'go back to our own country' when we have the audacity to mention where we were born, or, worse, say something in Spanish. It makes me want to camp outside their houses with a guitar and serenade them with 'Cielito Lindo' for hours on end :P. Haha, maybe we should start a group - Ninja Serenaders for Equality :P.

And that's with us living in an area that's more than 80% hispanic. :(.

Mm, I hear ya there. It's even worse because no one really talks about it period. ~_~

NYAHAHA, It will be a glorious thing! Now all we need are more people who have knowledge in even more languages before the plan can launch into motion! o7

Oh gawd, that's just even worse. One would think a higher percentage would mean people'd be smarter about it, but I guess not. ~_~
