For some reason people forget that Asians are also minority (for some reason we take a back seat to other minorities who get more media attention).

As the Mallard Fillmore comic strip recently pointed out, ain't it interesting how much media attention is lavished upon certain minorities who break through into the mainstream of certain sports (Tiger Woods, the Williams sisters), while other minorities are totally ignored (the Chinese fellow who recently became the first Asian to make it into the NBA, whose name I don't know because the media ignored it)?
