Andrew Ti and guest Kulap Vilaysack field a question from possibly the most genial caller.  We discuss the merits of baseball, and more importantly, cheesesteak.

Psh, you're just applying the Who Charted Kulap stereotype to Guest Star Kulap. Even if it's positive, it skews our perspective of all Kulaps!

Also positively stereotyping takes away from a person's own achievement. So saying something like "Asians are good at Math" implies they're only good because of their race, rather than their own individual abilities and hard work.
