Asian Americans Show Impact of Being #WhitewashedOUT - NBC News

my article for NBC Asian America
"We are going to keep talking about this, and we are going to keep the pressure on Hollywood to finally acknowledge their own internalized racism," Ellen Oh, president of We Need Diverse Books, told NBC News. "Asians have been ignored, overlooked, rejected, dismissed, and condescended to for a very long time. But no longer. We will not stay quiet, we will not be ignored. Hollywood is fooling themselves if they think Asians don't have an effect on their bottom lines. Advertisers have been courting Asian wallets for years now, why aren't Hollywood producers and directors making that same connection?"
