How do you think they're portrayed as?
Negative or Positive?
...Is it fair?

Um you really make a lot of threads about Asians. It's making me not happy. Unless you want to be asian. And don't even make fun of me, b/c I'm pure Asian. Besides there are too many threads about Asians already. I think you have an obsession with Asians.

Well Americans don't make fun of Asians, it's called stereotypes. Like oh you have Chinky eyes and the accent and so on. Not all asians are like that. And also I'm pretty sure there's a thread like this.

Edit: Asians are portrayed as regular cast members like in that Disney Show, Suite Life of Zack and Cody, I think. Although she plays a rich person.

The only reason any American TV show would cast an Asian character is for "exotic" favor.

most shows i watch dont have asians in them so i wouldnt really kno much about it except there should be more asian actors. some of the time the asians are in there to voice their opinion on political problems between races or countries, i suppose

I think its fair, all races are stereotyped to death at some point or another...and U.S isn't the only place who does so...

Sterotypes are hilarious. I don't mind good humor even if it is derogative to asians a bit. That dude on Mad TV...whose name for some reason I can't remeber, is quite funny. But its when tasteless humor by fucktards like carlos mencia is what gets me angry.

well you know, im asian and alot of those times i think that its funny, for example Kan and his family from King of the Hill or the babysitter from Friday. I find them funny because i can relate to them, they remind me of my family ( alot ) hehe. There are alot of other series that does that, and i dont think that intentionally that they are meant in a negative way, but thats just my oppinion. We all know that todays society people like to poke fun at others flaws, example blond joke, polish jokes, ect...they are not meant in a negative way but because everyone's preception of thing can be different it can become negative. So personally i think that its all just for fun and a good laugh and thats a positive thing..=D

I can't even think of a show w/ asian people on it other than lost and some really crappy disney shit. Oh right, and Mrs. Snow on MAD TV or whatever.

Well, on some American comedy shows they do take the piss a little but I guess comedians take the piss out of a lot of races and cultures so... yeah, whatever

So are you inplying she makes you "not happy" that someone admires people of mongoliod decent? Or are you saying that she has "yellow fever"? Well my friend that's your stupidity. Oh and "Pure Asian"? Why did you have to point that out?

Anyway. I think Im the only person on earth that hasn't seen lost yet. I think the only shows that use asian stereotypes are cop shows and comedy shows.
