Movie "The Martian" actually appears to be blackwashed

Apparently it isn't bad enough that Jezebel poorly reported on a party that supposedly had white people wearing "blackface" (actually dressed as gold digger), now their outrage boner has reached new levels of priapism. In a new article on Jezebel, it is claimed the movie The Martian featuring Matt Damon is whitewashed.

In Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Mackenzie Davis (a white actress) plays scientist Mindy Park, who’s Korean-American in the book from which the film is adapted, while Chiwetel Ejiofor (a black actor) plays a NASA director whose original character is Asian Indian.

In actuality, while Park is a common South Korean name, it is also a western name and no where in the book the ethnicity of the character is mentioned. So actually, the only complaint that can be made for real is that this movie has been blackwashed.

But I guess Jezebel just finds it fancy to distort the truth in order to turn their two minute hate session against Matt Damon into a four minute hate session. Because while in the old days, they rightly called you racist for the actual crime of lynching black people, nowadays interrupting a black person is enough to be accused of the thought crime of racism.
