#Representation Matters #White Washed Out says
Racial Erasure: when filmmakers remove the original racial identities of a character in favor of something else.
Erasure and the glaring lack of representation in the media of Asian-Americans (1% of leading roles) is extremely harmful to the formation of identities, to increased understanding, and acceptance. Whitewashing perpetuates racism, hate, and xenophobia.

Stand in solidarity with us as we refuse to remain unseen in a protest of the premier of Ghost in the Shell, staring Scarlett Johansson. The time has come to stop a long history of harmful erasure and whitewashing. White is not the only shade.
