Casting an Asian guy as Danny Rand would have been offensive to Asian people, as it prolongs the stereotype that Asian actors are only in Hollywood to play martial arts characters.

@mrmazz: Except people have been racebending characters for no excuse except muh representation, and people who disagree have been brushed off as bigots without necessarily being ones. You do realize that comes off as an massive stereotype that just because he is an martial artist he is NOT required to be Asian.

Lol at you caring so much about a white FICTIONAL character be race changed for whatever reason, PC included, when actual real life people/character representations are whitewashed for virtually the same reason :/

Sorry but what? When this has happened?

Exodus: Gods and Kings and Gods of Egypt spring to mind pretty quickly, both of which feature a predominately white cast in the main roles despite being set in a place where the inhabitants were definitely not white. But, there's also Angelina Jolie playing a real life mixed woman, Emma Stone playing a mixed race woman, the whole Airbender movie and more. Whitewashing happens a lot more than people realize, but it's done so discreetly and passively that no one seems to notice. But, change a fictional white character black and everyone loses their minds lol then they start saying stuff like "how would you like it if blade was white" not understanding that, on top of my previously mentioned point, that a lot of the minority characters race plays a much larger role in their character than your average white one.

Please lets not pretend that any these examples you mentioned are somehow fine with the general public at large and didn't receive a blacklash on their own. A simple Google search on Gods of Egypt will show people were not fine with the racebending and if indications are correct, it will turn into a legit box-office bomb. The Airbender had a load of problems that went beyond white-washing, all of these are poor examples to show we are okay with characters being "whitened" and in case you didn't notice, my "Blade should be white" point was ironic clearly by the "xD" that followed.

When did I say they weren't? And you just picked the two most mainstream examples while ignoring the dozens of other examples of whitewashing that get literally no attention. You can look it up yourself. Uhhh yeah....I know you were being ironic...you were still trying to make a point of it though even though the two are not equivalent.

That is because you only gave me three notable examples instead of mentioning the dozens that go by unnoticed and now you are bringing them up as a way to move up your goalposts. Besides telling me to look it up myself is seriously close to saying to "I don't have time to educate you".

Name me a white-washed movie that wasn't bashed by critics for changing minorities to white people in recent memory.
