Japan is okay with white washing?

A friend of mine on twitter posted a youtube video that she had found where Japanese people were asked about their opinion on Hollywood white washing roles, such as in Ghost in The Shell and Death Note.

It’s interesting to hear from people in Japan that they really aren’t all that upset about Ghost in The Shell, as well as the statement that casting non-Asian actors make things look more anime to them. Very interesting point of view. Then again, this is coming from people who are the majority in their land, and as commented on in the video, have a fascination with foreigners.
