1- Ok then... 2-So you're against race and gender bending correct ? What are your thoughts about Mordo who wasn't black in the comics ? Surely it would upset you a lot too based on your viewpoint ? 3-I agree with you on point 3. 4-Agree. 5-Same here. 6-And here we disagree. Let's start with how TAO is a small role, an important role, but she's just there for the transformation. Aside of the villain the 3 most important roles are STRANGE-MORDO-WONG in that order. When was the last time we had a blockbuster movie where the 3-4 main lead people had a white, black and asian man in it ? In the MCU we've had maybe a lot of white man and a smaller black man role with Falcon, War Machine which they made look like a token black friend but whatever but we never had a diverse cast like this one in the entire MCU. It was mostly a lead white man a token black friend and that's it. This time around we have not only an important role played by a black man but also an asian man. To me having a woman in a role is adding diversity regardless of her race. Would it have been better if it was asian or any other race sure but not for TAO as I mentioned then it would be stereotypical which you can't escape as I've explained it in depth before to which you didn't reply. Now wether you like it or not and based on the criticism which is far too much then it truly deserves this movie is more diverse than most Hollywood blockbusters. Look at BvS all white, Nolans Batman mostly white look at XMen mostly white despite having infinitely more characters for a single film then you look at this film they made a very important character black they still have cast an asian man in a very crucial role and they changed only 1 small yet important part because of valid reasons. If they truly cared about whitewashing just to whitewash then they wouldn't cast a black man in a white role on top of that they would just cast another white man a la Nolan in Wongs role. And about your ''white'' woman issue. A black man has it much easier than an asian man etc. but it doesn't take away the fact that it is diversity. Yes white woman has it much easier compared and it is one thing that annoys me (take Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Rogue One for example why do these lead female characters have to be white for gods sake ? Why couldn't they be Asian for example or Latino ? Or Arab ? Surely they could re-write things to make sense for them) but in TAO's case we're talking about a stereotypical SMALL role not a leading role which to me isn't as big of an issue as say the movies I mentioned above which are LEADING characters. Yet they aren't getting a fraction of the criticism this film is getting for a very small role. Do you see where I'm going with this ? I would say that if there are 4 leading characters in Dr.Strange 2 of them are asian and black. But you'd think this movie has no diversity at all. And based on the bolded part the amount of criticism it gets compared to a lot of other films which have barely any diversity in it and are rarely if ever getting criticisized I find all of this to be very hypocritical and insincere and as a minority this pisses me off the most.
