How immigrants are redefining 'American' in Southern California

Jeremy Lin, the (fictional) musical

I never thought I'd use the word "adorable" to describe a video in which racial stereotypes are dealt with in song. Or for that matter, that I'd be writing about a video that deals with racial stereotypes in song in the first place. But this fictionalized mini-musical about New York Knicks basketball star Jeremy Lin as a teenager is something to behold, even if what is supposed to be Palo Alto looks suspiciously like New York. And yes, it's oddly adorable.

It was produced by New York theater actor Kevin Yee (who also stars), with help from several talented friends and "absolutely no budget," as he describes it on YouTube.
