Jeremy lin has such a big heart. Within the last month he was in taiwan and china teaching young children how to play basketball. He brought along David Lee which shows that he is sending a message to others that even though people become famous they should spend the time to be a good influence on others. With great success comes with great responsibility. With fame many view celebrities as a role model, and I believe that Jeremy Lin is the perfect example of a role model. Most people who become famous turn selfish, only care about the money, and use their fame and money for unnecessary things. Jeremy lin, on the other hand, has given back to th.com munity and many fans admire him for spending time to give back. He may not be a Lebron James and make as much as him, but in my eyes Jeremy Lin exceeds any other player because of the positive influence he has on others.

Jermey Lin is a bad influence to all, he uses the race card, complaining about racism towards Chinese in America when there is none. The Chinese are treated like royalty in America, many of them are MDs, PhDs, Engineers, CPAs, MBAs and they attend the top notch schools because of affirmative action. We whites get the short end of it, in fact we whites sometimes want to be a minority so we too can get affirmative action. The playing field is so unfair for the whites.

Smile you are white. If I was white I would be smiling 24 hours 7 days a week. White people get everything handed to them on a gold platter.

DS, do u knowq how hard it is to be a white in America? It is very hard for us to get into many good good college because of affirmative action for minority, and we have to score so much higher and be so much smarter.
