"The NIH-commissioned study of 40,069 individual applicants between 2000 and 2006 reported that Asian American or Hispanic researchers were just as likely as whites to receive the new research project grants.
"But it found that blacks were less likely to receive the grants, regardless of education, training, citizenship, country of origin and prior research and publication history.
NIH officials were also disturbed by the small number of applications from non-white applicants. The study found that white applicants far outnumbered those of all other racial/ethnic groups: 28,456 whites (71 percent); 5,402 Asians (13.5 percent); 1,319 Hispanics (3.3 percent); 598 blacks (1.5 percent); and 11 percent were other/unknown."

"Taped eyes? Yellowface? Ching chong? Yawn.

The real tip on “How To Be Asian” that’s missing from the vid? If you want to be Asian, rule number one is Don’t Suck. I don’t know if this video was supposed to make me laugh or give me an outrage boner but neither happened. It just kinda hung there like a stale fart waiting to be collected in a glass jar and ushered out of the room so the rest of us could carry on. It was meh, it was mediocre. Mediocrity, of course, is failure, and failure isn’t Asian."

"The unidentified woman in the video starts out by telling viewers the offensive series of jokes she’s about to make are in honor of her Asian friend. 'So today is my friend Jess’ birthday and she’s Asian, which got me thinking ‘wow what’s it like to be Asian?’ so I did a little research and now I’m going to provide for you a tutorial on how to be Asian.'

"Sounds like this woman may have been under a rock during UCLA’s Alexandra Wallace “Asians in libraries are loud” fiasco because not only does this woman articulate every offensive stereotype in the book but she also illustrates how to get what she calls “the look” by smothering French’s classic yellow mustard over her face and putting tape over her eyes to make them appear smaller."

"'This is not just a one-way street,' says Grimes, 19. 'It’s just that no one [in our community] went out to the media and spoke to anyone.' Grimes points out that tensions have dramatically reduced now compared to 2009. She says it is frustrating that so many of the school’s accomplishments have been overshadowed by the media’s overplayed tensions between African-American and Asian students.

"But the Asian activists believe there is still work to be done to overcome the inherent distrust between African-American and Asian groups. 'We have more security than guidance counselors,' Tong says. '[School officials are] asking them not to fight, not to be criminals, but [at the same time] are treating them like criminals.'”

"Asian women in Canada find racial discrimination more hurtful than sexism, according to new research from the University of Toronto's psychology department.

"'We found that Asian women take racism more personally and find it more depressing than sexism,' said lead author and doctoral student Jessica Remedios. 'It feels like a more personal attack.'

"The study is based on a sample of 242 women of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Japanese and Filipino descent living in Canada. Most were University of Toronto students who have been in Canada for an average of 10 years."

"The Wah Luck residents stock up on the ethnic staples they can’t easily find at their neighborhood Safeway: bok choy, jellyfish, bamboo shoots, dried seaweed, roast duck and sticky rice cakes. They stuff the plastic bags into their backpacks and store them in the bus for the ride home.

The pilgrimage has become a symbolic ritual for the last Chinese residents of Chinatown. Although the neighborhood’s transformation over the past 15 years from an ethnic enclave into a regional night-life hub has brought new residents and tax dollars to the District, it has pushed most of the Chinese population into Maryland and Northern Virginia."

"Axed Sky News anchor John Mangos has hit out at claims he is a racist and insists he still has the full support of the Chinese community despite his controversial on-air remarks earlier this month.

"Mangos exclusively told The Sunday Telegraph he deeply regretted the comments in which he referred to a man as being clearly Chinese because he had 'squinty eyes' and 'yellow skin'--but maintained that he meant no harm."

"There's an embarrassing gaffe in British Vogue's article: A photograph of Chinese model Liu Wen walking in Derek Lam's spring show (pictured) is misidentified as a different Chinese model, Du Juan, who didn't even walk in the show."

In the words of tipster molecularshyness, "SERIOUSLY?"--AJP

"Ham-handed plays for the votes of large minority populations in urban areas are as American as large minority populations in urban areas, but this might be pitched less at Asian-American voters than at, say, people on the internet? In which case, very nice work with making sure no one is an embarrassing caricature."

"The exhibition will publicly and visually denounce Asian American stereotypes by showing Asian American characters positively portrayed as heroes instead of as the menacing villan or side-kick character. Growing up, I never saw many Asian Americans portrayed in comics or literature in a positive light, if they were even featured as characters at all."
