The Asian Jersey Shore...
Peter Rocks | 04.27.10 | Blog, video
Yes, this post is long overdue. So there is mad hype about Tyrese producing an Asian version of “MTV’s Jersey Shore.” However, there is great debate over how Asian Americans will be further portrayed in American entertainment. Without being too political or critical, it’s worth a look.
The bottom line is that Asian Americans are consistently discriminated against in all forms of entertainment – except break-dancing and all forms of hip hop dance, we pretty much own it now.
The decision is up to you. Will Asian American stereotypes be erased? Or will new ones form? (www.RoastList.com) Personally, I wish someone had the opportunity to try something like this when Ktown was really popping in Los Angeles.
