    FEATURED ARTISTS

    Every month, various noteworthy and/or emerging Asian Pacific American artists will be featured for your review and consideration.

    MICHELLE KWAN - This great role model has a MICHELLE KWAN - This great computer game that acknowledges the great popularity and admiration that many people have of the artistry that Michelle displays on the ice (both on and off).

    Hopefully, this is a new trend for companies won't have a reluctance to utilize any talented and recognizable people (whether they would be Black, White, Hispanic or even ASIAN/ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN) in their respective advertising/promotion of any product!

    Michelle's constant accomplishments as a champion on the ice, via the various medals she has won the past number of years, provides ample evidence of her status as a great role model and example!

    MARTIAL LAW - show is honored because we should remember the important things that this trail-blazing show had accomplished before it was cancelled for the 2000 t.v. season, despite receiving acceptable ratings.

    Sammo Hung and Kelly Hu provided evidence that Asian/APA actors are accepted in featured t.v. roles, as noted by George Takei and Dan Mayeda.

    Remember that Martial Law was the first Asian/APA show renewed for a 2nd season & attained the highest ratings (avg. 15) for a show that featured an Asian/APA cast & lead character(s).

    For the 2000 tv season, support Lauren Tom in the comedy DAG, Christina Chang in the drama Deadline, ER's Ming-Na Wen, Daddio's Suzy Nakamura, Third Watch's Anthony Ruivivar, Cindy Lu on the ABC's comedy Geena and Ravi Kapoor on Gideon's Crossing, a medical drama by watching these shows.

    Let the networks KNOW what you think!
