ライオン脱走に備え着ぐるみで訓練 開園中の想定は初 愛媛・とべ動物園 www.youtube.com


Japan's Tobe Zoo contains lions, as any zoo worth its salt should. But what if the lions escape? That scenario is what employees prepared for this week, resulting in a hilarious video that went viral. They couldn't let loose a *real* lion for obvious reasons, so they made do with someone in a lion suit. The ensuing action was - thank God - filmed and uploaded to the Internet. Guess 2019's not a total wash after all!

This heartbreaking new video shows the real effects of whitewashing.

'Movies aren't real, but they affect real people.'

On screen representation — or a lack thereof — has consequences. And when people of color can't see themselves in the media because their stories have been given to white people to tell, it takes its toll in real ways.

It works the same for any marginalized group, like LGBTQ people, people living with disabilities, or people from certain religions.

This phenomenon, known as "whitewashing," is illustrated perfectly in a new gut-wrenching video by New York-based comedians Chewy May and Jes Tom. In the PSA, viewers see why the decision to cast actor Scarlett Johansson, who is white, as the lead in "Ghost in the Shell" — a film based on Japanese anime — perfectly exemplifies how whitewashing can be so harmful by putting a face to the people it hurts.
