I remember growing up. No actors, no actresses, no kids in tv-shows for kids, no tv-hosts were ever Asian. No models were Asian. Kids need somebody to look up to. They need people of their own color, their own gender, their own sexuality to look up to. Diversity is the key. I love how novels and movies and series now have a more LGBTQ-representation, and a more diverse representation too. Not just the stereotypes. I love how women have stronger parts in series and movies. I love how POC have stronger representation too. I can still only name two actresses with Asian looks.
I hope the discussion forces people to reflect upon own behavior. I'm hopeful!
