Re: Joss Whedon and the blurry line between homage and appropriation

So...that explains why there weren't a large number of Asians on these planets. But the Chinese outnumber Americans by at least 3:1. That's a huge number more. Are we supposed to believe all of the Chinese descendants lived on a planet we never saw? And what does it say about Whedon in the fact that he never brought that world into focus into the series in the first place. I realize this is a hard charge to make substantially (after all, the series didn't last long, so there were a lot of things Whedon couldn't include), but it's worth thinking about.
