badly u rarely see them as protagonists and its usually some minor role or something stupid or with some major flaws. like the guy from heroes hes chubby they make him seem stupid at the beginning by wanting to be like a comic book hero (i think haven't seen in along time) they replaced people with white actors like in the movie 21 they were all suppose to be asian but only 2 of the minor characters are. also its usually the 3rd d or higher generations asians that become famous actors in america rather then 1st or 2nd gen.

Their are hardly any Asians in the media but when their is, they always play stereotypical roles. Asians really are underrepresented in the media in the US. For example, Because of the sexploitation of Asian American women in American media, Asian women are always portrayed as being exotic, submissive, loyal, or seductive etc...Because of that it projects false ideas about Asian Women and how society views them. You can find it in alot of the mass media, history, books, war, and popular culture in the US. (Seriously, just try typing in "Asian Women" in any search engine, most searched sites result in pages filled up with mail order brides, porn sites, dating sites/tips,etc.. ). Most non Asian men who travel to Asia, most likely 90% of them are looking forward to finding a possible love mate. Talk about yellow fever, Lol. ...Yeah please don't give me that excuse that race doesn't matter, I know there are a lot of you kinda guys out their.. While Asian men are seen either as being less masculine, week, nerdy, smart, kind, etc.., or has broken English and knows kung fu. Asian men are hardly ever portrayed in a dominant role. Just look in any American movie, I could name tons of movies where they always make the white guy get the Asian girl, but never make the Asian guy get anyone.

So Yeah, I kinda did a research paper on this kind of stuff in school.

the smart ones, rich ones, and sometimes the antagonist, part of the minor cast but stand out for the rest of the movie
