I actually like the fact that it wasn't an Asian kid...and that non-Asian kids can be inspired by Jeremy Lin. And in terms of inspiring Asian kids, I think it helps Asian kids seeing Asian adults in mentor/authority positions over non-Asians...

It's one of the reasons I am coaching youth soccer in my town...so that kids (mostly non-Asian) get to see an Asian-American in an authority/mentor position...

This is exactly the same reason why i always try a little harder to dunk on the non-asians in pick up games.
