In movies, music, sports or in some kind of spot light in america?

seriously granted there is yao ming who plays basketball but other than that you rarely see asian people in "real movies" granted there is Jackie Chan, and Jet Li. but they're always doing martial art type movies things asian people have become associated with. aka (stereotype) I have never seen an asian american movie that delt with everyday issues, romance, comedy ect. and I was wondering why is that. ( I know that there is joy luck club but thats besides the point)

you never see them in music, and like mentioned early other the mr. ming you don't see them in sports.

and even if there are no explination, express anything!

remember this is in AMERICA ONLY.

You definitely need to watch more TV, movies, read more magazines etc. because Asians are just about everywhere. You just need scrutinize to be able to identify them.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. The thread: ''How come you never see Asians? '' Even if it's in America, I see them everywhere, lol.

Famous people only take up a small percentage and adding to the fact that asians are still minorities in comparison to african american/white people :/ there is no doubt you'll see less. Lucy Liu...Zhang ziyi....chiaki kuriyama...sandra oh...bi ling...

i know .. maybe i should edit my post a little. it's more like there isn't a heavy presence. like most people could name off actors like brad pitt or george lopez, or denzel washington before they said James Kyson Lee.

I know there are asian actors in show like Grey's Anatomy, Heros, Lost ect.

but that still doesn't explain the absence in music and most sports.

That is because the Asians you seek aren't at their country or continent of origin. It goes without saying that Americans would dominate in different media because they are after all in America. Asians in relation to that, have less exposure because the ratio in population there to the race you specified differs. Besides, not many Asians who go to America aspire to be in showbiz or engage in sports.

There are Asians, you just need to look harder. Some of them are mixed, too.
