Walking Dead Actor Struggling to Find Other Roles

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.

This is a caravan of 500 Chinese Mexicans, fleeing from Mexico to the US in 1917, in an episode of North American history that is all but forgotten, part of a social phenomenon known at the time as el movimiento antichino. In the early 1900s, Chinese Exclusion Laws were in full effect in the US. Many Chinese laborers and merchants had settled on the Mexican side of the southern US border. These Chinese were targeted in a brutal ethnic cleansing campaign led by Mexican revolutionaries such as Pancho Villa. The purported rationale for this xenophobia was that the Chinese were taking Mexican jobs. Some theorists believe that anti-Chinese sentiment was a key component in the creation of a racialized Mexican national identity. Hundreds of Chinese were murdered, thousands were put on ships back to China (often with Mexican wives).
In 1916, US General John J. Pershing led 10,000 troops across the Mexican border on a mission to hunt down and kill Pancho Villa. He sought and received field assistance from certain Chinese communities in northern Mexico. Chinese restaurants and laundromats fed and clothed Pershing’s troops. In the end, the mission failed and Pancho Villa got away. For the Chinese who had aided Pershing, staying in Mexico was probably unwise. Pershing received a special exception to Chinese Exclusion Laws from the US president himself, and brought a bedraggled column of 500 Chinese refugees into the US southwest in 1917.

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.
