Blasian: A person of mixed Asian and black heritage;
A couple where one person is black and the other is Asian.
There is a level of anti-black prejudice in the south Asian community, which does mean relationships between these cultures may have to fight harder or may be less likely to happen in some circumstances. However, these relationships do happen especially between African or Caribbean people and south Asian diaspora’s around the world.
Film is a powerful form and showing these relationships on screen could help shatter stereotypes and open up people’s minds to the idea. It can even provide solace to couples out there that they’re not the only ones in this situation and that they should be able to celebrate their love.
