Final Project: How American filmmakers portray Asians

In my final project, I analyzed trends, statics and techniques made by film producers in Hollywood to see why and how they stereotype Asian American actors/actresses.  Asian-American actors are usually shown to have their roles diminished as martial arts experts only while having little screentime to actually act. I would have thought that if Asians can only hit Hollywood as martial artists then the rest of them is undesirable.  However there are many exceptions to this “rule,” that perhaps my correlation isn’t totally correct.  However this only means we shift the blame from devaluing Asian actors (and other minorities) to overvaluing white male actors.
