The stereotypical image of the Asian man in the US has transformed, mostly thanks to the martial artists. In “Romeo Must Die”, Jet Li set a new boundary in black and Asian culture next to Aaliyah (RIP). Soon after, Jackie Chan was dating Jennifer Love Hewett in “The Tuxedo” and Jet Li married another white girl in “The One”.
These days Asian-White hookups are much more common and continues to be exemplified in recent movies such as “Harold and Kumar A Very 3D Christmas”, “Fast Five” and “The Namesake” (Kal Penn). Martial Arts can also be practiced by others and this presents an interesting mixed duality in Western movie stars like Jason Statham and Chuck Norris [Insert Joke Here]. Furthermore, MMA fighting has taken off in the US and this is also another lineage of Bruce Lee and martial arts’ legacy.
