She makes some points, but I feel that perhaps insisting that an Asian character be more prominent within the story isn't appropriate. JK Rowling clearly had a vision of her main characters, I assume based on the kinds of people she either grew up with or saw regularly in England (the book clearly is supposed to take place in England). If her experiences did not include a lot of Asians, should anyone be surprised that her vision for her major 6 or so characters are not Asian? 

The relationship between Harry and Cho didn't fail because of race. It failed because Cho ratted out the location of the Room of Requirement (albiet because she was fed Veritas Serum). Harry saw that as a betrayal and his feelings toward her cooled. By the time he found out the truth about it, I daresay he had realized he had deep feelings for Ginny. 

I also think the point about Dumbledore's sexuality is not relevant. The question should not be "Why wasn't he outed in the books" but "Why do we need to know the sexual preferences of others"? Omission is not the same as lying or hiding. We have no idea what the sexual preference is of Professor Trelawney (sp?) either, but does it matter? Do we need to be told what it is? Did the author lie by omission by not explaining to us what Professor Trelawney does behind closed doors? No.

If you want more Asian heroes or main characters who are portrayed differently than you have experienced them to be portrayed, then perhaps you could write some stories yourself. I mean that in all seriousness and as a genuine suggestion. Help show others good stories that portray Asians the way you feel they should be portrayed. :)

Maybe he realized he just wasn't feeling it and the veritas serum thing was the catalyst for him to realize it

I enjoy all of your videos. I just prefer to not approach life out of fear, especially eating. If one eats an apple because they are afraid of cancer, that apple becomes toxic to the body due to the energy of the thoughts (just my belief). Instead of looking at it as a "fight", I prefer to look at it as focusing on the good. Blessings :)

Wow. I actually wanted to give "Peaches" some respect, but she could not even respect Katie enough to give her a chance to speak without getting so hostile! Wow, Peaches. You just negated every point you made because now people are focused on how rude you were rather than any positive points you might have been making. You're not a great representative of AP :(  Please, folks, there are other more calm, respectful and wonderful AP parents out there. I admonish you all to seek them out to get a better representation of the peaceful joy that can come from living an AP life (Peaches is making it seem that being AP is synonymous with being hostile).

I really wish I could tolerate melons. I bet this would taste good with apples as well.
