Asian American Comedian: why my non-race shows are actually more important

the rudeness episode and the liars episode i did on dr phil were actually MORE important than even that race one. It is important for asian americans to just be able to participate and see themselves in "regular" american situations not just by asian for asian about asian stuff. Which is important from an educational and historical point of view for sure, but the work is also to make Asians welcome and particularly asian AMERICANS be acknowledged and recognized as americans-- tax paying pop culture buying proctor and gamble supporting voting americans. The "other" thing is the hidden bias. Foreigners in our own country NO. That is why I am VERY VERY proud to have been part of Dr. Phil's shows this year. Plus his books are GREAT. GREAT GREAT.
