Sample Solution

Asians, as they tend to favor bold, magnetic personalities and presences. Social perception on masculinity and femininity stand as another bastion against greater representation rates of Asians in the media. American mass media and stereotypes have emasculated the Asian American. Gendered race theory posits that stereotypes of racial groups typically have a gendered component, where certain groups are viewed as more masculine or feminine (Alt, “Gendered Race Prototypes” 121). Caucasians and African Americans are considered within the former, while Asians fall under the ladder. As American pop culture is notorious for being male-centric, the gendered race perception of Asians does little for opportunities in the entertainment industry. A study by race theorist Joanna Schug revealed that in popular magazines, Asian women appeared at a ratio of 4:1 in comparison to Asian men (Gendered Race in Mass Media 6). While Asian women heavily outnumber Asian men in many forms of media, it is important to note that Asian representation as a whole is still miniscule in relation to other races: African Americans had ten times the amount of representation Asians did, while Caucasians had nearly forty-three times as much in said magazines. The study only serves to confirm that there are additional shackles placed on Asian males who seek to enter the largely male-dominated entertainment industry. Although some may claim Asians are becoming more visible in the entertainment industry today, the roles they play misrepresent the race and should not be considered Asian representation. Many Asian roles are extreme depictions of stereotypes: either of bumbling buffoons, heavily accented foreigners, or some comical, clueless figure. These disgusting clown-like portrayals of Asians in the media are reminiscent of the “Happy Sambo” in 19th century America, which dehumanized African Americans as smiling, brainless minstrels for consumption. Perhaps the most successful Asian-American actor in history, few have matched the legendary Anna May Wong’s star power or film appearances in the 20’s and 30’s (Chang, “Open Doors for Asian Performers”). But ultimately, Wong was defeated by the system and became a victim of typecasting, or only getting roles that reinforce a certain character, and died a shadow of her for>
