If You Don’t Know, Now You Know

This beautiful world is full of multi-racial people, a lot of them Asian American. In no particular order, here’s a list of people you may not have known:

Apolo Anton Ohno, American speed skater. OK, if you know who he is you probably know he’s half Japanese. But he makes the list because he’s up in Canada kicking ass on the short track. Congratulations Apolo Ohno.

Nate Robinson, three time NBA Slam Dunk Champion. Didn’t know that one, did you? Robinson is 1/8 Filipino, from his mother’s side. This guy is only 5’9″ and dunking with the best of them. And best of all, he’s close to being a Boston Celtic.

Kate Beckinsale, actress. She’s 1/8 Burmese. I never would have guessed if I hadn’t been told, but Wikipedia says its true, so it must be. Not to encourage judging women by their looks, but she is beautiful. Must be her Burmese heritage (joking, kind of.)

Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Saved by the Bell for life. Brother might be blond, but he’s half Indonesian.

Ne-yo, sexy love singer. Chinese and African American. Gay or not, who really cares. The man can sing, and he’s way out my league anyway. Love his music.

Also, badass Bruce Lee (Chinese and German), actor-wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson (black and Samoan), wide receiver Hines Ward (black and Korean), actor Rob Schneider (Jewish and Filipino), singer Michelle Branch (white and Indonesian), and actress Kelly Hu (Chinese, Hawaiian, and English).
