From Tiger Mothers to Fresh Off the Boat: Eddie Huang's Mom Is Not Every Asian-American Mom

As with most things related to parenting, the stakes are even higher when these images impact our children and families. It is one thing if you disrespect or make fun of me, but if you do anything to hurt my kid, all bets are off.

Why Fresh Off The Boat Is Not Asian America's Saving Grace

Fresh is the first show with a full Asian American cast in 20 years. This, without question, is something to be celebrated. However, we cannot praise Fresh to be the messiah for Asian Americans on television. Doing so will only cause disappointment and frustration of misrepresentation.

A fish-out-of-water story about a family trying to fit in and run a successful business hardly sounds like anything new. But the fact that the family in question is Asian American in a show where race and cultural differences are unapologetically (and hilariously) omnipresent makes FOTB a true gamechanger.

For the most part, Eddie Huang's show has been hailed by Asian American boosters as a smashing success. White guys who wear track suits stand behind it. Asian guys who aspire to a certain kind of edginess dig its groovy hip hop stylings and in-your-face-stick-it-to-the-man street vernacular. But I actually found it a depressing show.

The ABC network show is giving the American population a brief, but authentic window into the life of an Asian American family. TIME has hailed the Eddie Huang creation with "the makings of an American original." And that's exactly what we are -- American originals.

Ever since Bruce Lee died, much of our self-confidence as Asian Americans has died along with him. Today, it feels like we have no Asian heritage to embrace. We no longer view martial arts or Eastern philosophy as our own. And most of us would feel uncomfortable embracing Bruce Lee's spiritual side.

Why Fresh Off the Boat Matters

FOTB is not just about Asian America seeing itself for the first time in mainstream media. It's that we see ourselves while other non-Asian Americans can see us simultaneously. That's what sets this experience apart. FOTB is deeper than image. It's about acceptance.
