You're an idiot. It's established that some Asians possess all the attributes that these white CEOs have (intelligence, hardwork, charisma, leadership skills, yada yada), which in general Asians (supposedly) lack. The point here is that when all the variables are equal, whites get picked. So Race has a lot to do with it. So too is gender. Why do you think it's much easier for Asian females to fill some roles in a white dominated society? Why do you think they only show Asian females when they want a little bit of this yellow diversity? In America, Asian representation is through the Asian woman, not the man. Look at Disney, there's one show with a Korean teen as a star. Then you have Mulan before that. There's not going to be a Disney movie about the great sea-faring General Zhengh He, even though he fits Disney agenda's for a character that promotes diversity (Muslim, eunuch, Chinese, military, adventurous, etc.). Even that E-harmony bullshit advertisement, you'll see an Asian woman/white man couple. So yes, it's completely relevant to the business world, as art tends to mirror social realities. On the other hand, black men are everywhere. It's only very recently that you see black guys play surgeon chiefs and judges. It's not coincidental that these roles happened only shortly after the election of Barack Obama. My belief is that it'll all change when Asians start to have big corporations under their own control. It already happens in Africa, Latin America, and various places around the world. It's a matter of time.

You cannot compare acting in the movie industry to becoming a CEO in the workforce because of several reasons. Assuming a perfect workplace, becoming a CEO is based on merit including hard work, intelligence, leadership skills and spelling. Even though the workplace isn't perfect, everyone proclaims that hard work will get you whatever you want so it's an ideal that we all uphold. When you look at Hollywood, the best actor does NOT always get the leading role. So much depends on what the actor looks like, whether he/she fits the role in the movie, whether the audience will like the actor, and whether the producer/director wants to hire the actor in the first place; this creates a reward system that is superficially biased so that there isn't a level playing ground for everyone. That is why I say it is based on social stigmas. Understand? Now go make sure you finish your homework before Monday.
