I saw a show about the MIT students who had won big counting cards at BlackJack. In that re-enactment, the people were mostly white so I thought they were in real life too. Turns out they were mostly Asian American. So that show, which was on TV and meant to represent the actual events (unlike the current Hollywood movie), was way off and now the movie 21 continues with the tradition of racist casting because, y'know, white audiences apparently can't identify with Asian lead characters. Asian Americans are actually talking about boycotting it. Read more at Angry Asian Man's blog.
