Walking Dead actor Steven Yeun is writing and producing his own projects to create better opportunities for Asian actors.
Steven Yeun started working on his acting career in 2005. He left behind a lucrative career to movie to Chicago and become an actor. It is often times difficult to start a career as a working actor but, according to Steven Yeun it is even harder to do it as an Asian-American.
Asians and other ethnic minorities in the American film industry often have to be specifically, purposefully written in as their race in order to be considered, and even then, their roles are usually created to act out stereotypes and be plot fodder. I really want this man to do well. And I hope sooner, rather than later, Hollywood will begin to consider Asians for regular roles - roles in which their race is not their purpose.
NEVER FORGET when Miley Cyrus tried to get buck, and NEVER EVER FORGET when Kid Fury clapped back with the skill and might of the Ancient Wig-Snatchers of Old.
No words can describe my love for this…..
i think about this so very often.
anybody wit a brain know the US just be dick slangin to flex on everybody they on’t really care bout them people’s problems
my favourite word privileged people say is ‘if’
'if someone came up to me and said…'
'if i got bullied for who i was…'
'if the roles were reversed…'
like we don’t get ifs, we are getting harassed on the street, we are getting attacked, we are in the marginalised group who you have power over I don’t care about your hypothetical fucking situation
Dehumanization and oppression aren’t social experiments. They’re someone’s reality.
