Racebending comes from the criticism of the M. Night Shyamalan’s live-action adaptation of the AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER. Although AVATAR takes place in a fantasy world, the nations the main characters came from were loosely based on real-world, nonwhite cultures. (Aang was coded as Asian, and Katara and Sokka were coded as Inuit.) When it came to casting the live-action movie, the main heroes were cast with white actors, while any nonwhite actors were relegated to supporting or villain roles. The term has become popular on the internet since the 10 or 11 years since the casting was announced.
