I have never met Wettie in a state of calm, serenity or magnamity. Every time she posts she lets loose a cacophonous firecracker.

Just like the natives should be grateful for the Whites stealing their land and killing them off!  



If I wanted to see a bunch of ugly white people with crappy acting skills, I'd watch the "The Hills".

I actually find it comforting that the only criticism of Westerners you can come up with is deluded nonsense.
I guess you haven't even read the article before posting: The 50% premium Westerners get is still well below international market level, that's why you get only sub-par actors. Once Chinese movies are good enough to attract international audiences they will have big enough budgets to hire decent actors.
As long as that's not the case they'll hire Mandarin-speaking contest winners. So quit your immature whining and accept that China is quickly improving, but is still not on international standards.

No need to bring history into this one! It's also about an actor/actresses "draw" at the box office. Small names and big budgets for production just don't cosy up together very well. It's about the bucks plain and simple.

"It's about the bucks plain and simple."  and the BUCK is not even distributed in the minority groups (not just asians but others as well) and right here at home in america, we dont see any (very rare & few) in TV commercials & advertisin ...too afraid of promotin heterogenous society
