I've been on a minor kick as far as reading asian-* comics & media thanks to Secret Identities, and I'm noticing that hanging with the white crowds and trying to fit in are pretty common themes. Makes me feel better about my own fascination with playing chameleon vs drawing attention to myself.
It's interesting that you mention it being a convenient stereotype for working... I was actually planning on cutting off my "you don't look that asian" highlights in time for my next on-site interview. I just need a haircut and think it would look weird unless I divest myself of them completely, but I wonder if I'm unintentionally doing myself a favour when it comes to assumptions? It's been occasionally convenient that the asian stereotypes cancel out the female ones wrt math. :P
