I didn’t watch Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift or Babel so I can’t really answer on those.
As for “lack of black representation in Japanese media”, like honestly what do you expect? There’s not that many Black people in Japan, of course there’s not gonna be a ton of representation. I understand when people get upset with poor representation of Black people in Japanese media and honestly just in media in general, but tbh I don’t care if there’s a lack of Black representation in Japanese media because that’s not my people’s country (well, you know what I mean). I think people should be more concerned about the poor representation we have in places we’re supposed to call our country instead of worrying about representation in countries that most of us don’t even belong too.
When I say this though, I’m mostly assuming you’re talking about “black representation” as in Black people who aren’t mixed with Japanese. If we are gonna have more Black people, let them be mixed with Japanese, or someone with a Zainichi parent like Crystal Kay. Now that would be nice.
