Did you think Asian-Americans have it easy?

Everyone will want to read these two pieces about prejudice against Asian-Americans (who knew?). The second one, especially, is really an eye-opener. And note that Michael Luo, a respected editor at the New York Times, was on his way from church on a Sunday morning! Possibly the only Timesman of whom that could be said!

There is a lot to be learned here, especially for those of us who think we are free from this kind of behavior.
