"Asian Like Me" -New York Magazine

I received this link from a graduate of Stuyvesant High School yesterday.  Contributers to "Asian Like Me" discuss everything from traditional Asian upbringing and how it may deter success in the workplace, to Asian male social awkwardness, and the "bamboo ceiling" effecting high-achieving Asian Americans in companies across the United States.  After reading it, I wonder if these aren't Asian issues, but a first-generation American issues.  I know African immigrants also raise children to be obedient and reserved, with noses in school books.  Regardless, "Asian Like Me" is an interesting article and has already generated over 300 comments by readers.
