The Most Racially Stereotyped Characters on TV Right Now

Mike Chang and Tina Cohen-Chang, Glee

Quick, try to describe Mike and Tina without talking about what they look like or how they dress. You can’t, can you? Mike can dance and Tina can sing, but so can everyone else on that show, so they aren’t really that special there. Nope, what makes them unique is that they’re Asian. That’s it. They met at Asian camp, they have “Asian kisses,” and when they don’t get A’s in class, they call their grades “Asian F’s.”  Also, both their last names are “Chang.” Sigh.
