    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.

    Well, learned something about Tiger Woods today. Also learned that the Asian-Americans he names don’t overlap with who I’d name

    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.

    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.

    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 …

    I was only listing the Indian Americans because apparently they couldn’t, but shout out to the greatest architect and designer of all time, Maya Lin. Thank you, Ms Lin, for the Vietnam Memorial. #RESPECT

    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.

    I think the bigger issue is that people don’t think of prominent Asian people as prominent

    This only proves Americans don’t see us as Asian Americans as Americans… We are foreigners to them.

    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)
