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.
Dude - reading comprehension...
My point is that you cannot compare being a lead actor in a film to being a CEO in a company- I am not saying that prejudice is absent in the workplace.
Nobody wants to see an Asian dude running around as the main character because we're not in fucking Asia. Do you see Caucasians flocking to the movie theater to watch the next black comedy starring Martin Lawrence? You won't see an Asian in a lead role in a generic, non-race specified movie because of America's current cultural norms.
Nobody wants to pick an Asian CEO because the board of directors making that choice is filled with white people. Regardless of who you are, you're more comfortable choosing who you associate with based on similarities and not differences.
One happens more so because of existing social stigmas in the US whereas another takes place for other reasons.

There are already over 20 Chinese companies on the international fortune 500 list with the overwhelming majority having Chinese CEO's. There are over 80 companies on the Forbes 1000. What are you even talking about
