I think the Asian community only really gives credit when they are not only the first but one of the best if not best at whatever it is that they are doing
I work as a librarian and I create all kinds of hot topics pages. I had one of my student workers create the Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month page for me.You can find it at:http://govdocs.evergreen.edu/hotopics/asian-pacifichistory/The student worker that created it for me was Pacific American.

Oh man... I'm bad with Pop Quizzes. When in doubt I was told to answer "C" which statistically yields the highest percentage of correct answers (probably not true though).But, yeah, C is my final answer. Nobody really cares unless they make a token Asian joke or talk about Chinese take out. Aight, I'm hungry. Going to Panda Express.
obviously you are not paying your lobbyists enough.
Hi, I really like the comic strip! my possible reason: most, or possibly most, Americans spurn polite problem solvers, and celebrate BIG TOUGH ATTACKING GUYS. Maybe, these people also like [big tough attacking guys-who are bent on violent revenge. So, my idea: a lot of USA people go with the all-Asians-are-polite-and-practical-and-not-violent-stereotype. It's sad, really. I think that lots of Americans would feel more whole and challenged by reading Gandhi, rather than spending countless sad nights watching brain-dead pro-wrestler-characters blow off steam with violence.
