    There aren't any Asian celebrities in Hollywood because it's racist. The only roles Lucy Liu plays in are your stereotypical "docile lotus" roles. Any role that an Asian man plays in, besides Harold&Kumar, is always your typical kung fu flick. It's full of shizz when they say: "It's because White people pay money to see White people in the movies." So can someone tell me why Sandra Oh is all up on Grey's Anatomy getting it in with White men? White women certainly don't pay to see their men rolling it up in the sack with a White man. The majority of women in this country is White women, not Asian women. The stereotypes we see in the Hollywood media is based on the mindset of the Hollywood big wigs. The Hollywood wigs happen to be close minded, stereotypical, and exploitative.

    There are several, but I suppose part of it is a reflection on the population. Asians make up something like 5% of the population in the US. so it makes sense there isn't an abundance of them in Hollywood.

    because hollywood is run by racist jews

    i don't watch hollywood

    its all bunch of stupid stuff

    i wouldn't care so much about hollywood

    its a failing instiution

    what they show is not reality

    SO ASIAN HAVE ENOUGH GUTS TO REJECT STEREOTYPICAL ROLES NOWADAYS

    so that means they would rather not be there than to be a stereotype

    It's all about $$$$$$ Who runs Hollywood? White people. Who thinks that only white people go to movies, buy tickets and read magazines? White people.

    When we stop buying tickets, watching their TV shows and buying their magazines, they'll glamorize other races more. They don't respond to anything but $$$$. Once we hit them in the pocketbook, they will dance for us.

    Be patient. Times will change.

    There are, but not as much white and black celebrities. Why aren't there any white and black celebrities in Seoul? ;)))))))))))

    Plenty of Asian celebrities in Asia.. so they live in Asia. The whole celebrity world doesn't revolve around Hollywood.
