Ep 396: Christopher Huang
Christopher Huang is a professional photographer who also blogs about how Hollywood handles race, especially as it pertains to Asian Americans. The recent casting of a young Black actor to star as “Ariel” in the upcoming “The Little Mermaid” live-action remake provoked quite a bit of disagreement. That’s what led me to Huang’s provocative blog on Medium (https://christopherhuang.medium.com/3-dimensional-portrayals-of-women-of-color-but-only-if-they-have-white-male-love-interests-9f06c78491a9?sk=cb91d715ac283b845549d4e149b23bed
I then invited him to give my listeners an abridged experience of how he sees this controversy and Hollywood’s still-problematic history of telling white-male-hegemonic stories.
