I've planned the overall story for "The Stick Girl in Trioth" from beginning to end with plenty of flexibility to deviate from the narrative, but until about three weeks ago, I had no idea that Chapter 4 was going to be about the whitewashing of Asian roles in Hollywood. However, just as I was finishing up posting Chapter 3, the topic bubbled up in the news -- yet again -- so I am taking the opportunity to put in my two cents. Recent examples of the phenomenon include “Ghost in the Shell,” “Marvel’s Dr. Strange,” and "Death Note."

There is nothing wrong with mixing things up from time to time, but this happens so frequently that it appears to be systemic. The thing is, it doesn't have to be. Times have changed and I'm pretty sure people these days can accept Asians characters (like ones named Kusanagi, Yagami, Kaneda, etc.) being portrayed by actual Asians. #WhiteWashedOUT
