We wish we were in a day and age where this isn’t news, but unfortunately, it still is. After seeing a million commercials that play off Asian jokes and stereotypes, it’s nice to see Asian Americans on television portrayed as a normal, run-of-the-mill family. We’ve seen this once before from Target, with the awesome beatboxing mom. Bravo.
