Nutty Bites 83 – Whitewashing in Hollywood

Nutty Bites 83: Whitewashing in Hollywood

Nutty Bites - Whitewashing in HollywoodNuchtchas, Tek, Jason (Podcasting’s Heartthrob), Claire, & Shane, gather to talk about the pervasive problem of Whitewashing in Hollywood. That’s right, four white people and one person of color tackle this topic, are we part of the problem? Likely.  Listen as we get enraged and try to play devil’s advocate but still can’t understand why this is still a thing.

Also included an Englishman saying Benidact Cumberbatch :) And the explanation of how Into Darkness didn’t have Kahn.

Yes we understand, but didn’t clearly state till we turned off the recording, that yes Ben Kingsley is part Indian but he is so white passing and they used brown face on him when he played Ghandi. I suppose it was progressive casting for the time, but we still aren’t happy.

We make some mistakes, and leave some stuff out, but that’s what happens when you are impassioned about a topic. Some people may say this isn’t a big deal, but this panel of geeks all seem to think it is a big deal.

I also thanks all the patrons who made this episode possible. If you’d like to contribute go to my Patreon Page and donate to the show and next month I’ll be thanking you. I read the names at the beginning of this episode, I am still getting a feel for how this patreon thing is working. Let me know if you like it at the beginning of the show, or the end? Thanks!
