    Thank you!!! I actually have only seen about five minutes of Heroes, which I had a lot of hope for but stopped watching immediately after finding out the Asian character spoke in broken English. I’ve been boycotting the show ever since.



    I’ve seen way too many characters like that on TV and in the movies and I’m not gonna take it anymore. Most glaring case in point for me: the Japanese exchange student in John Hughes’ so-called classic “Sixteen Candles”. As much I love the man’s other movies (and really, I do) and Molly Ringwald during the 80’s, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to see the redeeming qualities of that one flick because of its blatantly racist depiction of Asians. All respect to Mr. Hughes, but I think he blew it with that one.



    It seems to me that Hiro is carrying the Charlie Chan torch into the 21st century. But obviously a lot of people have no problem with this derogatory depiction of Asians, so “oh werr!”
