Break Stereotypes

I had such a bad self-image growing up. I think it was partly because there were very few male Asian role models in the media at the time.

They were either martial artists like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, the nerdy types like Long Duk Dong (Sixteen Candles) and Toshiro Takachi (Revenge of the Nerds), or the wise old man like Mr. Miyagi (The Karate Kid). I was neither a martial artist, a nerd (I think), nor a wise, old man.

So I thought these videos of Bobby Lee from MADtv were totally hillarious:

I have to admit though that it was great that no one ever tried to pick a fight with me in school because they all thought I knew karate or kung fu. Suckers.
