My kids and I attended a 3-yr old’s birthday party this weekend and an action figure at the house caught my eye.
There was a somewhat wide cross-section in terms of representation/occupations — but check out the Asian Guy in front.
What the heck, man? The I.T. Tech Guy?!
As those who’ve been to my college workshops/lectures know, this is a topic that I touch upon having once auditioned 5 times in a month for 5 different characters on 5 different pilots, but all generally described as:
“Office I.T. guy, nerdy and shy. Awkward around women. However has the ability to access information with lightning speed” or “fiercely intelligent (a nerd, even), and asexual”Geez — how’s an Asian Brotha supposed to combat that image when toddlers are already forming their impressions Pre-K?!
