America, Asian, and Community: MESSAGE FROM THE FATHER OF MOLLIE TIBBETTS The person who is accused of taking Mollie's life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie. Justice in my America is blind. This person will receive a fair trial, as it should be. If convicted, he will face the consequences society has set. Beyond that, he deserves no more attention. To the Hispanic community, my family stands with you and offers its heartfelt apology. That you've been beset by the circumstances of Mollie's death is wrong. We treasure the contribution you bring to the American tapestry in all its color and melody. And yes, we love your food. My stepdaughter, whom Mollie loved so dearly, is Latina. Her sons _ Mollie's cherished nephews and my grandchildren are Latino. That means I am Hispanic. I am African. I am Asian. I am European. My blood runs from every corner of the Earth because I am American As an American, I have one tenet: to respect every citizen of the world and actively engage in the ongoing pursuit to form a more perfect union. Given that, to knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2018/09/0 1/mollie-tibbetts-father- common-decency-immigration-heartless-despicable-donald-trump-jr-column/ 1 I 631 3 1 002/ A Message From the Father of Mollie Tibbetts

The reason people are falling for this is that Asian characters really do get played by white actors all the time. This really isn’t an unrealistic headline and this joke is in poor taste.</p> </blockquote><p>Fuck you op for preying on the very real and valid fears of marginalized people for a stupid ass joke that ain’t even funny. Was it worth it you fucker?? Did you like scaring ppl who are afraid that their history, their childhoods, their own identities would be bastardized just like it has been countless times before? Cheap shot op. Dirt cheap. Also fuck the ppl on this who are giving ppl a hard time for being tricked. Like it’s not the most believable thing in the world that Disney would cast white ppl in non-white roles. </p></blockquote> <p>There is no dofference between a white person getting the role and the two that were passed up in this fake post. </p><p>The actors are korean. The character is chinese. A white American and a Korean American have the same lack of chinese culture and the same access to Chinese history books to study for the role. The Korean American actors would be acting in the same way the white ones would. So if it is offensive or wrong to cast a white person, you should have been just as angry that Koreans would have been cast. By your response, you clearly didnt. </p><p> You are so caught up in separating everyone in white and non white categories, that you have essentially made asians interchangable with each other, which is far more racist than some casting for a random movie. </p></blockquote> <p>They are interchangeable in looks in the same way that all White people are or all black people are. You couldn’t tell wether someone was from Korea or China in the same way you couldn’t tell someone from the UK or Russia.</p></blockquote> <p>Actually I pretty much can tell Koreans from Chinese people. Same with Japanese. There are distinctions you get used to after a while.</p><p>But getting this worked up over casting, particularly a fake casting announcement is looney tunes.</p>
