The problem with Emma Stoneâs casting inÂ âAlohaâ is NOT that sheÂ âcanât pass as half Swedish,Â ÂŒ Hawaiian, andÂ ÂŒ Chinese.â Itâs that she isnâtÂ Hawaiian or Chinese, and by casting her as such you are taking opportunities away from actual Hawaiian and Chinese people. Youâre not giving them representation if youâre not letting them represent themselves.
Iâm sick and tired of people saying,Â âI know someone whoâs half white and half [insert Asian ethnicity here], and they look white, so it shouldnât be a big deal that Emma Stone is playing an Asian.â That is not the point.Â It has nothing to do with how she looks, itâs about what youâre taking away from Asian and Pacific Islanders when you cast a fully white women to play us.Â
Iâm not buying Cameron Croweâs apology and his explanation that he âwanted a character who was proud of her Hawaiian and Chinese heritage but was frustrated that she didnât look Hawaiian or Chinese.â This is a struggle that many passing mixed people go through, and that couldâve been portrayed beautifully on the screenâif someone who actually understands that struggle were cast. Instead, we were given Emma Stone with an Asian last name and a fake tan. What Cameron Crowe gave us wasnât an apology, it was a half-assed excuse.Â
So no, I donât accept thatÂ âapologyâ (wherein Crowe didnât once say he was even sorry for casting Emma). And I wonât stop holding Emma Stone responsible for it as well. Even if she didnât create that part for herself, she still took it knowing how wrong it was that they were whitewashing yet another lead role in a Hollywood movie. There is no excuse for it. As aÂ âprogressiveâ andÂ âfeministâ woman, she should have known better. She isnât here for women, sheâs here for women who look like her and Iâm sick of it.
