Here's an interesting article about Asians in American films. Asians are underrepresented in the media. If you haven't noticed they're mostly cast as
  • (male) The nerd
  • (male) Kung fu master
  • (female) Dragon lady
  • (female) China Doll
  • (female) Kung fu master though less common than the men
  • (female) News caster
It's a pretty interesting read if you care about the topic.

As far as female news casters go, all the female newscasters up here are Asian so thats probably not that bad of a stereotype

And as far as the other stereotypes go, we usually tend to propagate those ourselves. Like in that new MTV commercial telling Asians to vote, all the people are martial arts fighters. what's up with that?
