Now Asian Americans actors are featured on a variety of television shows and commercials, not to mention in films, blogs on runways and more. Still, racial stereotypes persist about this minority group.
Ron English's insight:

This article was definitely interested to be apart of my projection because it list some of the sterotypes that Asian Americans encountered when it comes to portraying them in film as well as showing that in order to get rid of those sterotypes, then Hollywood needs writers, producers, and directors who will bring out the truthfulness of who Asian Americans are.

Newspaper Rock: Only whites get to make racial movies

Newspaper Rock: Only whites get to make racial movies | Racial Issue in Film | Scoop.it
In Deggans' terms, they “know white audiences will show up” for a white director's film about race issues, but they fear white audiences will not show up for an African American director's film about the same issues.
Ron English's insight:

This article basically had to be added to my topic, because I love the way that it basically shows how racially intended movies are much more received in society if directed, by a white director, then if directed by a black director.  In this article you will definitely see the reasoning that Hollywood studios have for this and why they approve white directors doing racially tension movies.
