Think acting wasn’t for Asian males? Stereotypes of Asians in the United States

Stereotypes of Asians are ethnic stereotypes that are found in many Western societies. Stereotypes of Asian people, specifically East Asians and Southeast Asians, like other stereotypes, are often manifest in a society’s media, literature, theater and other creative expressions. These stereotypes have repercussions for Asians and Asian immigrants in daily interactions, current events, and governmental legislation.
