Fashion, not Hollywood are the only ones casting Asians

As if there wasn’t already enough discrimination and racism in the world, whether you have depression, a bad job, bipolar, dwarfism, adhd,  a chronic physical illness now we have to put up with this????

When was the last time you saw a Hollywood movie with an Asian in the lead? Why Not?

The producers pitching the idea to the studios for production and distribution and ad money claim that because there are no Asian “A-listers” (A la Julia Roberts or George Clooney) that they can’t get dough if they go with lesser known actors. So they do see one color. Green.

It is sooo blatantly wrong to do things like cast Emma Stone as an Asian-American in ‘Aloha” with Bradley Cooper….even  Mickey Rooney played an Asian  lead Character. And these producers are just plain WRONG. Or scared. Or prejudiced. The most ethnically diverse franchise, “Fast and Furious” did hundreds of millions at the Box Office, for example.

FASHION on the other hand is in the midst of what they call “The Great Disruption.” See above. My sister works at high end lingerie designer “La Perla.” In the last 8 mo, 30% of her casting choices have been ladies of Asian descent. And boy do they sell some intimate wear!!!!  (Chanel, Gucci, Burberry, etc are right behind her).

She just got another job that will take her to LA with her three children and husband. But she has blazed a new trail for La Perla in a sagging luxury market post 2008. Go Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

21/01/2016 at 18:15 I hate it when they try to candy coat it. Yeah, partly because if Sheen starts meds, he’s already in middle age, he may not spend as many years battling side effects as we do. I have Tardive Dyskineisa (see my videos on IBPF’s Youtube page under Tardive Dyskinesia or my IBPF blog “Move over, Movement Disorder) I have a weight independent metabolic progression of high blood glucose from Clozaril, which I take for Tardive Dyskinesia and also it’s the only second generation antipsychotic that doesn’t make me thrash, as tardive is directly linked to atypical and traditional antipsychotics from Geodon and Abilify to Haldol and Thorazine. I’ve struggled with my weight. My antidepressant makes me nauseated and it’s hard to hold it down. But it’;s the only one that works. So I hang out with a freshly lined trashcan at the ready. It’s projectile vomiting. I found out that eating a high fat dinner enables me to metabolize and hold down a ¼ size of the tablet, so I separate it from all my other meds, take it right after dinner and then two hours later, if I have not thrown up, I take my other regular night meds. Ohhhh, the lenghths we’ll go to in order not to be depressed or manic.
