    Nearly half of Americans can't name even 1 Asian-American from their own country, and your comeback is trying to get a bunch of Chinese people to name 10 black folk from a single profession in a completely different country? Doesn't quite seem like equivalency there.

    Even when I was a little kid I coulda named Dat Nguyen, Kristi Yamaguchi, Lisa Ling, Connie Chung, and Apu.


    (edit - just checked and I wouldn't have actually known who Dat was until I was a teenager. The rest still hold tho)

    My first thought was Sandra Oh and then I looked it up and she's Canadian :heh:

    Then I thought Lucy Liu, Ali Wong, Devon Aoki, and Margaret Cho. Only Asian man I could think of off the top was Lou Diamond Phillips:skip:

    -Well I thought of Lucy Liu so I woulda passed. Off top I don't actually know the names of most the Asian stars I see regularly & I have no idea which ones are American.

    Off the top of my head, I know Bruce and Brandon Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Sandra Oh, Bobby Lee, Lucy Lui, Awkwafina.
    Asking why aren't Asians being more representative in the film industry can be easily answered: They aren't a huge population. Plus, I don't think most Americans really concern themselves what Asians go through on TV & Film other than Soap Operas and Martial Arts. That's one reason why Anime is so huge too.
