    Lost... And Found! Full humanity for Asians!



    The enlightened manner in which the writer/producers of "Lost" depicted the Asian couple Jin and Sun blew me away.



    When was the last time anyone saw Asians depicted in the Western entertainment media as fully human?



    When was the last time anyone saw Asians depicted in the Western entertainment media as possessing the same complex human emotions and thoughts as Caucasians and other ethnicities?



    When was the last time anyone saw Asians depicted in the Western entertainment media as other than as subhuman comic relief or despised evildoers?



    As Hop Sing, or Fu Manchu? As Mr. Yunioshi, or Oddjob?



    Demeaning Stepin Fetchit stereotypes of Africans are now Politically Incorrect, hence taboo. And rightly so. But what about the equivalent stereotypes for Asians?



    The creators of "Lost" deserve the highest possible praise for finally allowing Asians into the First Class Section of Oceanic Flight 815, instead of stuffing us in the baggage compartment along with Vincent the Dog.



    The episode "And Found" did not just find Sun's wedding ring. It found Hollywood's conscience, and Asian peoples' humanity.
