I caught this ExxonMobile commercial recently and I was a bit incredulous – here we have an Asian American ExxonMobil engineer / scientist Michael Lin talking about how in high school he was a bad student who wasn’t interested in and didn’t think he was good at science! Do such Asian Americans exist? LOL. Stereotypically, I was good in math and science and did study engineering. But given the “Model Minority” perception in America today, I wonder how many people find this commercial believable?
