Not everyone likes to be mistaken for a star athlete, especially when it is meant in a racist manner. I stumbled across this article when researching for my final presentation and was very intrigued by this perspective presented by the author, Andrew Keh. He talks about the professional basketball super star, Jeremy Lin and his impact on racism towards Asian Americans in multiple ways. Ever since the rise of the Lin in the global spotlight, any Asian American playing basketball is referenced as “Jeremy Lin-like”. For some people, this may seem like it is a compliment but if you think about it, the basketball player may not have any similarities to Jeremy Lin in their playing style besides being Asian American. How would I feel like if someone grouped me with Steve Nash, a future Hall of Famer with white skin – The answer is pissed. I dont have any traits that relate to Steve Nash besides my skin color and that is frustrating because I want to be seen for my my Dwight Howard rebounding ability or my Steph Curry free throw accuracy; both athletes being African American but still more realistic to compare me to than a skin color. This article does a fantastic job at highlighting key terms in our AAA 201 course such as perpetual foreigner and panethnicity. This article presents valid points and has truly made me think much more about this argument.
