The image of Asians in America is a collection of stereotypes. Asians have little to no presence in mainstream America, to date. Stereotypes range from brainy geek, to inoffensive and docile. The men are frequently labelled as being effeminate.
There is a widespread purported perception that Asian Americans are not "American" but are instead "perpetual foreigners." The term perpetual foreigner is coined by law professor, activist and scholar Frank Wu, 45, in his book, "Yellow: Race in America beyond Black and White."
The book is a glaring look at the perception of Asians in America. "Wu examines affirmative action, globalization, immigration, and other controversial contemporary issues through the lens of the Asian-American experience."
