    Margaret Cho and Michelle Kwan. I’m Korean American, so they were the first ones I thought of.

    I’d guess that a lot of people just had their minds blank when they were put on the spot.

    That’s definitely not a lot, compared to the non-Asians “celebrities”. Manipulating facts only worsen the current problem.

    I’m not too into pop culture so I didn’t know to many of these people. After Kamala and that Star Trek guy and that Margret comedian and the architect with the short name and the… failed.

    FFS… Jackie Chan isn’t American… people really need to diversify their environment if they can’t think of any famous Asian-Americans.

    Asian is not exclusive to East Asia. There are many other countries within the continent that vary from each other significantly. In fact east Asia forms a small part of the continent. There’s a misconception here in the United States that Asians must be oriental looking. I’m from South Asia and when I identify myself as Asian I get a look of surprise because I’m mostly mistaken with being white.

    Relax, my fellow ethnic Asians, the survey wasn’t directed at you. Nobody is surprised that you know other Asian Americans. In fact, you’re expected to. No need to show off in the comments! 🤣
    (Although it wasn’t explicitly mentioned, I’m guessing the survey was conducted among Americans who weren’t ethnically Asian. Also, I’m guessing they weren’t allowed to Google.)

    Song catchy as hell but what about Vice President Kamala Harris, since you included Mindy Kaling.
    What about infamous director M. Niight Shyamalan?
    Actor Dev Patel – slumdog millionaire.
    Comedian Margaret Cho also missing.

    This argument on “Who counts as Asian” is half your problem right there. Lucy Liu not being mentioned by people being polled feels sexist. Not saying it is but she is literally the token Asian in most movies and TV shows.

    So Kumail Nanjiani, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Kamala Harris are not considered Asians? Or their names just don’t rhymes?

    Reply
  • Niranjan Hanasoge 1 year ago

    I’m not surprised that even in the comments here, apart from a handful of exceptions, most of the recalled names are from entertainment and pop culture. There are plenty of prominent Asian Americans who are/were state governors, district attorneys, government officials, politicians, astronauts, neurosurgeons, CEOs, sports people, journalists, educators …

    This is racist.
    Again, america, stop assigning other countries to americans. All that does is divide. You are literally discriminating based on race. It’s not endearing or charming.
    If you have an american passport, you are american. Period.
    This video is like an equal opportunity boss introducing a new employee by saying “Surpriiiiise, (s)he’s gaaaay! :D” It’s none of your business. Stop it.

    This is SO sad. To be fair, I immediately forgot every Asian American of note that I know of, even obvious ones for me like Philipa Soo, Daniel Dae Kim, and Lucy Liu. And as a Pittsburgher I can’t forget Troy Polamalu and Hines Ward!

    For Pacific Islander they left out two of my favorites; Tulsi Gabbard and Mazie Hirono. (Senator Hirono is not just of Hawiian Citizenry but was born in Japan)
